Quarterly Finals

So many talented spellers!

We had a great turnout of past champions and some brave challengers taking the Wild Card spots, too.

We had to resort to some rounds of backward spelling, which challenged all of us. In the end, Bill Long was the winner (of the $100 cash prize and a lot of glory!) and three others qualified for the year-end Finals.

Ross Beach entertained us with, among other ditties, a medley of spelling-related songs, including one by The Rutles in which we learned how to spell CHEESE and ONIONS, and a plaintive take on M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E which definitely touched my heart.
