PTA: Quiz SIG @ Pretoria | Gauteng | South Africa
Are you a general knowledge buff? Fancy yourself as the next winner of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Do you simply retain useless facts for some reason? Or do you enjoy a fun night out with great conversation? Well, either way, you should consider adding weekly quiz nights to your calendar!
Teams consist of 6(-ish)  people so if there’s more than six, we can start another team! There are quizzes at Jock of the Bushveld pub every Thursday night at 19:00, hosted by Aux Technicals. Quiz Master Leon Botha will test your knowledge about topics ranging from astrophysics to zoology, so no matter what your field of knowledge, you will be an asset to the team.

So, what are you waiting for? Reserve your place on a team by sending an email to pta.sigs@mensa.org.za right now!

Winelands: Fourth Annual General meeting

Winelands: Fourth Annual General meeting

Current, paid-up members of the Winelands chapter of Mensa South Africa are invited to the chapter’s fourth ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING on Thursday 4 July 2019 at 18h30, in Somerset West.

The meeting will be held at the same venue used for our monthly speaker evenings.

Homemade beef lasagne, with a traditional Greek salad and crusty bread, will be served (vegetarian option on request).

Members will receive a welcoming sherry on arrival, and there will be a cash bar available.

There is no charge to members for attending; guests pay R100pp.

At the meeting, members will have the opportunity to find out and raise questions about the chapter’s operations and finances.

Our constitution provides for a two-year tenure for the chapter’s committee and, since the current committee was elected in June 2018, this is a non-election year, although volunteers are encouraged to join the committee.

Members will be asked to:
– accept the annual report (1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019)
– accept the membership report
– accept the financial statements to date.

For catering and access code purposes, please RSVP to the Winelands Secretary.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, kindly complete and return a proxy form (obtainable from the Winelands secretary).
