2018 Canadian Memory Championship in Toronto, Sept 1

Hi everyone,

I’ve found a very special place where to hold the Canadian Memory Championship this year: it’s a gym where they teach kick boxing and jiu-jitsu and also meditation and where they hold other educational project. They are called the Trireme Academy.

Most likely, it will be the first time memory athletes get their memory tested next to hanging sand bags. LOL. That will surely be a memorable competition. I think it’s great that people are starting to make the connection between training and memory performance. And there is no better place to make that connection than in a gym.

Anyway, all the details of the competition are posted in the up competition schedule here in this site, and a FB event page is also up. As more details come up, I’ll update things here. Everyone is welcome.

Looking forward to it!
