The Terminology of “Manrichment”

Posted in Uncategorized by Tod Robbins on May 5, 2009

Often I read and hear of “manrichment”, a LDS male equivalent activity to the Relief Society’s enrichment activities. These events can and have included: barbecues, sports, car tune-ups, rifle polishing, and the occasional wrestling of a bear. I appreciate this term but wonder if any of you in the wide world out there have suggestions for a more concise terms for Elders Quorum-male only-educational-hang out sessions? Now I’m not saying “manrichment” is completely inadequate, but there must be some higher truths.

Please list your thoughts in le comments.

    i’ve always hated that term. cheesewhiz. i’ve used Man Night, and ours always include high levels of caffeine and Xbox, as well as charred meat. and they’re never done with my own elder’s quorum. forced friendship never works for me. also Halo Night works well, as even if no Halo is played, it captures the spirit of no women, foul language, and no curfew.
