2018 Brain Games Gallery

Jonesborough, Tennessee

The 2018 Tennessee Senior Brain Games championship returned to Jonesborough, Tennessee, the storytelling capital of the world. The out-of-town teams arrived on Tuesday, October 16 and were once again welcomed by the town of Jonesborough, Jonesborough Senior Center staff, and the Jonesborough Olde Towners.  

The Jonesborough Olde Towners earned their third consecutive victory, this time against The Chester County Challengers from West Tennessee, the Smith County Whipper Snappers from Middle Tennessee, and the SoKno Skolerz from Knox County. It was a very close game: One point separated first and second place! With that win, the Olde Towners brought back another $2500 for their center and, perhaps more importantly and because this was their third consecutive win, took permanent ownership of the trophy representing the first six years of competition. 

TCAD celebrates all four teams for making it to the stage! 

TCAD thanks the town of Jonesborough; Jonesborough Senior Center Director Mary Sanger and the center's staff; the staff at Jonesborough's McKinney Center (Thanks Theresa, Jules and Hannah!); Jonesborough Town Administrator Bob Browning; Jonesborough Mayor Chuck Vest; and Miss Tennessee Christine Williamson.
