"Last year, 14th of March 2016 marked the first Pi day celebration in Georgias capital city Tbilisi. The event was organized by Mathematical Olympiad “Everesti”. As promised last year by the organizers, the mathematical festival was again held on 14th of March to celebrate Pi day. Both public and private schools all over Georgia participated in the event. Like last year, participants presented works related to the number Pi and mathematics in general. Children from one of the schools from the capital city, Tbilisi, developed computer software that helps determine how well one knows the number Pi. Chess enthusiasts could participate in a masterclass presented by FIDE certified coach Parmen G. The mathematical festival lasted for six hours and hosted thousands of visitors. The traditional challenge to remember as many digits of the number Pi as possible was held at the end of the event. First place went to 12 years old Tamar K., who remembered 201 digits, second came 12 years old Giorgi K., with 177 digits, while third place went to the last year's winner Giorgi D., with 154 digits. Next year, organizers are planning to extend the Pi day celebration to most of the regions of Georgia. Best wishes, Mathematical Olympiad “Everesti” team in Georgia, Tbilisi."

"In class, we had a competition to see who could memorize the most digits of pi. So, naturally, I memorized 205 in less than a week. It was my turn to recite in front of the class, and I got stuck on one number but knew all the numbers after it! Turns out, the website that I had been using had the number as an 8 but apparently it was a 9!!"
