I'm participating in the AARP Spelling Bee held in Cheyenne on Saturday, Aug 11. Today, Friday, there's a day-long "orientation," talk about keeping active, and mock spelling bee, and I want to attend it.
Will let you know on Sunday how I did...I'm not expecting to win but I
do hope to get out of the writtens into the orals. There are 60
participants which must be whittled down to 15 - done so by 4 rounds of
25 written words each. I should be able to beat out 45 people to get on
to that platform for the oral round, even if I lose on the first
Well, we'll see.
