Past provincial championships:
Last March 23 we had our very first provincial championship at Laval University in Quebec city. The full results are online on this page! Local organizers and competitors are telling us they’re quite motivated to make this a yearly tradition. If you’d like to try the very same challenges as those competitors, you can. Click here to know how. We’ll publish your results if you send them before April 22.
Upcoming provincial championships:
Not yet confirmed, but there are some rumours about an upcoming Ontario Memory Championship coming quite soon in Toronto. Others are also talking about a British Columbia Memory Championship coming up next summer…
CMSA general policy regarding provincial championships:
Up until now almost all “provincial memory championships” in Canada have been improvised events where 1 to 3 competitors would spend a few minutes memorizing a few cards and that was it. Cool, and it will still be possible to do just that if you want, but we’d like to try a different model. We’re calling for the formation of longer-term autonomous provincial organizations who would organize more ambitious events every year around the same dates. You can start very small of course, but aim to grow in the long term. Want to organize the very first Manitoba or Saskatchewan or Newfoundland provincial memory or mental math competition? Get in touch with us. We’ll offer pre-determined formats, step by step procedures and rulebook that you can choose to use or not to use. Want to keep it simple and only test competitors for random numbers and words? You can choose to do that. Want to try out something revolutionary that has never been done before? That’s also possible. As long as your proposal isn’t completely insane, we’ll promote your events and recognize your champions. Your organization or event will even have its own sub-page on canadianmindsports.com where you can choose to post whatever you want. The proposal is valid for any memory or mental math or cubing related organization in Canada, although for cubing you may prefer to work with canadiancubing.com instead.
