Registration is now open for the third annual Peter White Public Library Adult Sip and Spell: A Spelling Bee for Cheaters! The event will be held Friday February 7, 2020 at the UP Masonic Center Red Room. Teams of up to 4 people (ages 21 and over only, please) may register for $100.00 per team.
This isn’t your average spelling bee–this is a CHEATER’S spelling bee! Contestants can purchase cheats to advance their game. Cheat prices start at $10.00 each with cheats like skip a word, buy your way back in the competition, advance directly to final round (while wearing a bee suit for the duration of the event), and 30 seconds with a dictionary. Audience members (21 and over) may attend for $5.00 cover charge and purchase cheats and “bet” on their favorite spellers.
Team Sign-in opens at 5:30 pm the Bee starts at 7:00 pm sharp!
In the first rounds, teams will spell together until six teams remain. Those teams will move on to the final rounds where contestants will compete as individuals.
A winner will eventually emerge and a team will also be crowned with an award for team spirit. Costumes are encouraged!
A cash bar featuring Blackrocks Brewery beer, wine and soft drinks will be available.
More information is available on the PWPL Facebook Event or at www. pwpl.info.
Proceeds from Sip & Spell go to the Peter White Public Library Development Fund to benefit the PWPL collections, programs and services.
