USA Memory Championship: "Hope for Humanity"
Today, Rob Verger from The Daily Beast also described his experience competing in the event:
One of my photos [in the Names & Faces event] was a young girl named Sandre with two blonde pigtails. I told myself that I would associate her sandy blond hair with her name, and that worked. In another, I associated a man named Luke with the word puke, vaguely imagining that he had puked on his dark top.
