>Hello all,
>We previously listed the wrong date for the Says You event at convention.
>The event will actually take place on Sunday, July 1, 2012, in the 
>Lalique room.
>See the message below for details.
>The Sports and Recreation Division is currently seeking contestants
>for yet another Says You Challenge which it will be hosting at this
>year's  national convention.
>This event is based on the National Public Radio program Says You, a
>game  show in which contestants demonstrate their creativity and
>cleverness with  words through solving a variety of challenging yet
>amusing puzzles.  Each of
>the  six contestants will belong to a team of three people and
>demonstrate  their word wit as well as their knowledge of a wide range
>of subjects.
>Although Says You consists of several different rounds, its most
>popular  category is word bluff, in which members of one team are
>presented with a  word of unknown meaning along with several potential
>definitions given by  the  other team, only one of which is correct
>and the others of which  are  bluffs. The first team's challenge is to
>identify the correct definition. Other categories may include What's
>the Difference, Definition and
>derivation,  and other puzzly, wordy games.
>The event will take place on Sunday, July 1, from 06:30 to 08:30 P.M.
>in the Lalique room, atrium mezzanine
>If any of you believe that you would make for a strong contestant and
>decide that you would like to participate, please send an e-mail to
>Antonio Guimaraes at
>freethaught at gmail.com,
>no later than June 15.
>We would appreciate if you would briefly explain your reason(s) for
>wanting to participate in order to help us in choosing contestants.
>Antonio will reply promptly to request any necessary personal or
>contact information  and to  notify you of whether or not you have
>been selected. Also, feel  free to  distribute this e-mail to other
>people who may find this event of  interest. Remember that anyone is
>welcome to participate in the Says You
>Challenge as a spectator for an admission fee of $5. All proceeds will
>benefit the Sports and Rec Division.
>We anticipate this to be an exciting and entertaining event, and are
>hoping you can join us, whether you intend to compete or to watch the
>action while expanding your knowledge in the process!
>Antonio Guimaraes and Amy Ruell
