Add to Calendar 24-03-2012 24-03-2012 15 15th Annual USA Memory Championship Can’t remember where you parked the car or what you had for dinner last night? Try remembering a shuffled deck of cards or putting 99 names to faces you’ve only seen for a few minutes - it can be done. The “mental athletes” competing in the 15thAnnual U.S.A. Memory Championship have been training for the past year and will put their memories to the test on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at Con Edison’s Grand Auditorium in NYC from 8:30am to 5:00pm EST. Competitors will attempt to memorize the following in 5 to 15 minute time periods – depending on the event: • 500 numbers • 99 names and faces • A 50-line unpublished poem including punctuation • Two decks of shuffled cards According to Tony Dottino, chairman and founder of the U.S.A. Memory Championship, and an expert in memory techniques, business innovation, and creativity in the workplace, “The number of mental feats accomplished by our competitors never ceases to amaze us. Whether they are students from New Jersey, actors from California, or sales professionals from New York City, the competition gets tougher every year!” Last year’s champion, Nelson Dellis, set two national records; he memorized 248 random numbers in five minutes and memorized a shuffled deck of cards in one minute and three seconds. These records are bound to fall at the March event, as Dellis returns to defend his crown against a field of intensely focused challengers. The winner will represent the U.S.A. in the World Games later in 2012 (location yet to be determined). Last year’s World Games were held in Guangzhou, China.
