Join us at The Summit Lodge in Killington for our second annual Sip & Spell: A Spelling Bee for Adults. The event is scheduled for Saturday, February 9. The Summit will offer a Pasta Bar beginning at 5pm and the Spelling Bee will begin at 7pm. The bar will be open all evening.
To participate in the Spelling Bee, there is a fee of $5 and registration begins at the library on January 7. You can also register that evening. Once you are registered, you may purchase “cheats” that will help you get farther along in the game. Cheat examples are “Ask a Friend”, “Next Word Please”, “30 Seconds with a Smart Phone”, and a “Mulligan.” All proceeds from the Spelling Bee benefit the library.
We had 20 spellers last year and a great audience (it is free to come and watch!) Our winner was a visiting professor from MIT who correctly spelled “Sesquipedalian.” He received a medal and a cash prize. We hope you’ll take the time to mark your calendars and enjoy this great event!
