It's usually about this time every year when I'm busy studying the pronunciation of countless words. This year is no exception.
I've had the privilege for several years now of being the announcer for the Washington-Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce Adult Team Spelling Bee. This year's Bee is set for Tuesday, October 19 at P.S. Jones Middle School beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The event is always fun and raises money for workforce development projects in all Beaufort County Schools.
If you have never participated before you should consider giving it a shot this year. Just get a team together, pay the entry fee, and see if your spelling skills are tops in the county. You can contact the chamber for more information at 946-9168.
In the meantime, I have a stack of words to study...it can be like a near putsch or sedition if I get them wrong!!!
