Where everyone is above average.

Oct. 21 – 23, 2022

The Schedule Grid for the 2022 Wicked Good RG is now available online here.

Mark your calendars for WICKED GOOD! 2022 – October 21st to 23rd because we are again going to howl again at Great Wolf Lodge in Fitchburg, MA.  We are returning to the Lodge for our 58th birthday party with only a small hotel room rate increase from last year! Registration rates will also go up slightly, (BTW, this is made possible because Boston Mensa absorbs some of the costs.) Bring your kids, GWL celebrates Halloween all during the month of October. 

Like the previous years, we will have an entire convention center (7 rooms) to ourselves. They will be used for all of our usual activities like games, games tournaments, Mah Jongg instruction, two speaker tracks, paper puzzles, raffle, costume party, adult coloring books, meals, and of course, Hospitality. All meals and snacks  will be furnished by the hotel and are included in the registration fee. Saturday’s breakfast will again be a hot buffet served at the resort’s Lodge Wood Fired Grill restaurant (Come early when there is usually no line to get in).

Partygoers will be issued 4 tickets that can each be exchanged for a beer or a glass of wine throughout the weekend at the Lodge Bar (Right beside the Conference Suite). After that, the bar will be open for cash sales. Several other cash bars are available throughout the resort. If you have a room at the resort, any purchases made anywhere at the resort can be charged to your room by simply showing your bracelet with a microchip. (This same microchip is also your room key.) There is no restriction on moving about the entire resort with drinks in hand as long as they are in Lodge issued plastic cups. Grab a drink and sit by the pool or hot tub if you like.

Great Wolf Lodge ( https://www.greatwolf.com/new-england ) offers great features for our party goers who stay at the resort: Water Park with rides appropriate for children of all ages, Fitness Room, Game Arcade, Restaurants, Snack Bars, Hot Spa, modified candlepin bowling, and much more. Since this is a family resort, the activities and snack bars at the Lodge close by 10PM. All rooms have 2 Queen beds and a pull out couch, microwave, and small refrigerator. Maximum occupancy in the rooms is 5 people. Rooms can be reserved now and will still cost $142.00 (plus taxes). Rooms are guaranteed through Friday October 7th. If the hotel has available rooms after that, they will be added to our block, as needed. There will be an additional resort fee when the room is booked but the fee will be subtracted when RG attendees check in at the hotel. Our group booking code is: 2210BM22.

Mensans  and their guests staying at the resort will have free use of the Water Park and Hot Spa. The RG Chair will also have a few passes for free use of the Exercise Room. A nominal fee is charged for the other activities.

NOTE: All attendees must be fully vaccinated to attend the Wicked-Good RG. We plan to follow CDC guidelines with regard to masking. While we hope masking will no longer be recommended in October, it is possible masking may be required when not actively eating or drinking. If you are ill with COVID or anything else, we ask you not to attend.

If you cannot comply with these requirements, you may request a full refund of your registration fee with no penalty by the end of the day on Friday, October 7th. After that, full refunds are available only if you are suffering from COVID or other symptoms, have failed a PCR test, or have been exposed to a COVID-positive individual, as per CDC guidelines and let us know by the last day of the RG.
