2014 Mentor Dinner

The 2014 IRI Mentor Dinner will be at Alibi’s Grill, 7381 Shadeland Avenue. This is just south of 75th Street and near the IRI venue.  We will plan to “start” at 8:00 PM to allow time for completing the field set-up and check out and allow teams to get set-up at the event.

The Mentor Dinner is for post-high school age mentors and is just a fun time to meet, greet and relax with other team leaders.  No reservations are required. Everyone pays their own bill.
