Pronounce it again? Say it again please?

So we had to go to a final round after the double jeopardy round as there was a 3-way tie - the Bank of Anderson, the M&Ms (the table I was on) and the Spell Doctors (a physician group for the hospital in town). We all had 23 points after the double jeopardy round (the round where all points are doubled). Round robin type of giving the words - one team spells the word, if correct, they have to spell another word. If they miss it, the next team has to spell it and so on - Anyway - we went about rhree times around with all three groups missing the same words, et cetera. We tied for second with the Spell Doctors. We did give the bank a "run for their money" - lol. I'll post some pictures later - We had tons of fun and we've all been asked to participate on the same table again next year - so I'll be there - E :)

Congrats on 2nd Place! That is great- got your package! Thanks for the bookmarks. I know that the school and public library will appreciate them.

Thanks. We had fun and have all been asked to come back and represent the same table again next year - so maybe we will come in first place next year - lol. Or at least hope for 2nd again - It was a very nice affair - they raised about $6800 for the library which funds a reading thing in the fall where professional storytellers go to different schools or they have schedueld time in the library, so it's all good - maybe next year we will raise $7500 - will chat later - E :)

Thanks. The best part of this is having four other team mates to consult with before spelling the word. It was a lot of fun, and I get to go back again next year as I was asked to join them by the ladies who sponsored the table we were on. I look forward to the beginning of spring with the annual spelling bee - lol. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy my postings. E :)
