First Ever Nova Scotia Memory Champion!

Nov. 7 , 2017 -Halifax We are proud to announce our new 2017 Nova Scotia Memory Champion: Jazzlyn Braddock.  She’s the first woman to win such a title in Canada since they started in 2014. She won by default but still planned an Oct.29/ 2017 Speed Cards memorization attempt to set a benchmark for Nova Scotia. Due to circumstances beyond her control she was not able to complete her memorization attempt but we may allow her to settle this score at a later date.
If you’d like to support our 2017 Nova Scotia Memory Champion, she currently has a trending gofundme page for her sick dog.

    Hello ! I wanted to know if the championship is an open event ? I would like to film and interview people in for a documentary project.

    Thank you.

    Yes, spectators are welcome and you can bring a camera with you. You are free to talk to contestants but they are also free not to talk to you; typically, memory athletes prefer to be left alone in the minutes prior to the competition to save their mental energies.

    Hi Selim, the 2017 Canadian Memory Championships does not have a definite date or location set yet and the registration is not open yet. I will notify you once we open the registration.

  5. Simon Luisi

    For the provincial competitions, there is a registration form in the resource tab. Once completed, you just email it to [email protected]
    Never mind the registration deadline: The situation is unusual right now in Ontario because we have a central location for this event and there will not be any individual events. In light of this, we’ve decided to allow late competitor registrations for the Metro Hall competition only.
