Hi, Craig Sutherland, 2015 Canadian2018 Canadian Memory Championships.
It's been about 3 years now since the last Canadian Memory Championship was held in Toronto so it's time to give this city the competition back.
This year, for the first time in Toronto, we will feature 4 memory disciplines: Names and Faces, Numbers, Random Words and Speed Cards. The memory disciplines are described in details on the CMC website.
Separately, we are also planning to have a 5 minutes mental math challenge after the memory disciplines are competed to establish the first mental math champion of Canada in an adult category.
We are also excited about the special venue we have selected to hold this event, which is the Trireme Academy, 1850 Victoria Park.This academy is dedicated to the full development potential of people in Toronto and they understand that memory is something you need to train so it can reach its full potencial. Having our event there will help up send the message that a good memory is a trained memory.
As usual we will be giving away excellent memory books, medals to winners and other prizes. The first place winner is guaranteed a $50 cash prize.
The Canadian Memory Championships has recently developed a new rating system that will help contestants measure their performance level in comparison with others. All Canadian Memory Athletes who have participated in a past Canadian Memory Championship are now ranked this way, and you can find this chart on the home page of the Canadian Memory Championships, canadianmemorychampionships.ca
So we hope you will be able to take part in this exciting event. The registration is now open. Please see the registration tab of the CMC website. Space is limited, so please register early.
