Tallahassee Area Mensa
Welcome to the home page of Tallahassee Area Mensa!
Tallahassee Area Mensa a local chapter of the High IQ Society, American Mensa. The Tallahassee
area serves Florida from the Apalachicola River east through Taylor County including part of
Madison County and even a bit of Dixie County. Our area is also the only area in all of Florida,
Region 10 of American Mensa, to include a portion of Georgia. For a full view of the area we
cover, visit our map.
Interested in joining Mensa? The only qualification for membership is a score at or above the
98th percentile on an approved IQ test. There are two different ways you can join. One is by
submitting evidence of scores from any of a number of approved intelligence tests that you have
already taken, or you can take the Mensa Admission Test. For more information about qualifying
to join, visit the Join Mensa page.
Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Our first foray into the realm of Escape Rooms was well attended and fun. Neither group solved our
respective rooms in the allotted time, but I know our group was sometimes looking for much more
complicated solutions than was generally needed. Amusingly enough, we solved one of the last things
first. And we learned that none of us had eyesight good enough to read microscopic print even with a
magnifying glass! I would be game to go again, and if we do the same room again, we should do much
better! April brings us a lot of fun activities - a trip to McClay (hoping the blooms have recovered
from March's return to winter), an ExComm meeting, the monthly dinner gathering, the movie event, and
meeting up to enjoy the LeMoyne Art Festival downtown. I believe our local RVC, Thomas Thomas, is
planning on joining us for the ExComm meeting. So if you are interested in meeting someone active on the
national level, feel free to join us. Our ExComm meetings are open to everyone.
I posed this question last month but so far have received no response, which actually may BE the
response. But in case you missed the question, I am posing it again. Do you think our group needs a
Facebook presence? Would you be interested in being involved in setting up or maintaining a Facebook
page for our local group? Several groups in our region have a Facebook page, and the fact we do not
have one has recently been raised. So I am seeking your feedback and thoughts on how much interest
there is for us to have one for our group. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!
Hope to see you at an event soon!
