Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!

Welcome to August! I don't know about all y'all, but I am ready for fall! This summer seems to be more humid and glasses-steaming than last year. But it may just be that my grass is growing so fast I am spending more time outside working in it.

We had some great times this past month. The ExComm meeting at Village Inn was easy and peaceful, we reviewed the state of the treasury, Grant Logan told us all about how the AG was in Indiana, and we set upcoming events for the next few months. Watch for the minutes in an upcoming issue. The PIG*SIG at Sweet Pea was both amusing and delicious. Five us of gathered to partake of the fare and we were not disappointed. We also took great delight in the fact that they share parking with a meat market next door - given that they are a vegan place, this afforded some wonderful humor and joking. Hope you can join us for a meal or a movie, or any of the other upcoming events we have planned.

As I mentioned last month, we are exploring transitioning to an electronic newsletter. Currently about half of our membership has opted to receive the newsletter electronically. There are some advantages to electronic - it comes right to your email in-box, so you always know where it is, you can enjoy color images, you can print it out if you wish to or save the paper and keep it electronic, and we can include extra content if we wish to because we would not be limited to the restrictions of the printed page and paper size. As we move to an electronic newsletter, the printed version will be reduced in size and content until it is little more than a calendar of events, minutes of ExComm meetings, and ballots (as required by our by-laws). If you are interested in switching from print to electronic or checking on what your preference is currently set to, go to https://www.us.mensa.org/ and log in to your account. There you can update your preferences.

For now, we will continue to send out a print newsletter to everyone, but only for a couple more months.

Hope to see you at an event soon!

Robin
