Party at Sea around the British Isles: 2014

In 2014, the HELL’s M‘s Party at Sea continues–this time we’re circumnavigating the British Isles.  For each stop, I’m going to build a page with the stuff I’m thinking about doing there and then, as we make decisions, what those decisions are.  That’ll be the basis for my blog posts during the trip!

HELL’s M’s  is the Party SIG (Special Interest Group) of American Mensa.  We have a simple credo: A HELL’s M’s party is any party, large or small, where everyone participating in or affected by the party has good memories after the party is over.  What could make better memories than a Party at Sea?
