Events and Activities

Door Prize Drawing: Everyone who attends the RG will receive a ticket for the door prize drawing. For every hour you volunteer to help at the RG, you will be given an additional ticket. Some tournaments will offer an additional ticket for winning the tournament. The door prize drawing will take place at the brunch on Monday. You do not have to be present to win! The first place prize is a free registration for the next WPAM Regional Gathering. Additional prizes will be announced at the RG.

Tsundoku- (tsoon-Doh-koo) is an informal Japanese word, describing the state of having so many books, usually unread, that they pile up on your shelves, floor, nightstand, car seat, or anywhere else you can find room. If you suffer from this condition, then come to the Book Sale at the Pittsburgh RG!  We can help!  We can either accept your books to sell to others with this disorder, or we can sell you more to feed your addiction.  Your choice! Proceeds benefit the WPAM scholarship fund. In the meantime, contact Lora Mitchell at rvc@us.mensa.org for information.

A Silent Auction will be held to benefit the WPAM scholarship fund. Items will be displayed and bidding will take place in the Pittsburgh Room. Winners will be announced and items awarded on Sunday evening.
