During elections, it is always interresting to hear about what candidates hope to achieve, and I brought up in my candidate statment the idea of having 6 regional World Memory Championships. I think it really is the way to go to grow the sport. I don’t think it will ever make sense to have just one world championship in America. Unless you can generate big sponsorships, and this does not happen regularly in our sport. So having up to 6 regional championships is the way to go. This is how we can generate more interest in the sport quickly and increase the level of fairness of the sport by making it more accessible. So, besides me, anyone else thinks this is a good idea?
In my experience building the sport in Canada, the more memory competitions you run, the more people will eventually be interested in the sport.
Would you guys support a regional world memory championship here in America in 2020? If you do then I am the candidate you need to vote for this year. Thank you.
The idea to have only one big competition somewhere with all athletes together is has its roots in the Olympics where you bring people from all over the world to compete but the Olympics aren’t a democratic organization ran by volunteers. So, I certainly feel that the format I suggest certainly would definitely be preferable.
Please do express your support for this idea right here if you like it. It could help create the kind of momentum that would be needed to turn this dream into a reality.
