>> 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, June 30, from 06:30 to 08:30 P.M.
>> 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!
>> Sincerely,
>> Antonio Guimaraes and Amy Ruell
