2011 USA Memory Championship Events

According to the website, the events for the 2011 USA Memory Championship are:

  1. Names and Faces: 15 minutes memorization, 20 minutes recall
  2. Speed Numbers: 5 minutes memorization, 10 minute recall (2 tries)
  3. Poetry: 15 minutes memorization, 20 minutes recall
  4. Speed Cards: 5 minutes memorization, 5 minutes recall (2 tries)

Then comes three championship rounds:

  1. Words to Remember: 15 minutes memorization, 15 seconds allowed per turn for recall
  2. Tea Party — 3  Strikes, You’re Out: 15 minutes memorization (live presentation of information), 15 seconds allowed per turn for recall
  3. Double Deck o’Cards: 5 minutes memorization, 15 seconds allowed per turn for recall

The information above is just a summary of what is on the website and may not be 100% accurate, so check the website for the latest information.

I’m definitely not ready for this event, but it looks a little easier than international competitions, because there are no binary numbers or marathon events. Even if I don’t do well, it should be good experience, and I’ve heard rumors about a good beer hall in Brooklyn that may help ease my suffering if I do too badly. 🙂
