I have been remiss in my reporting duties. It is one of those cases in which a person gets busy, a certain amount of time passes, and then the person gets kind of embarrassed by how far behind he got on his reporting duties. I am happy to report that the person is well beyond the embarrassment stage, past the ashamed stage, and resting comfortably in the "just post something" stage, so the person can update now.
The winner of our April 24th Durham Spelling Bee is Jen Poole! Jen stayed in for 10 rounds, spelling every word given to her seemingly effortlessly. Jen made a last-minute decision to join the roster of spellers, and look what happened! This proves something... something about snap decisions changing the course of history. Yes, the world is a better place because each of the thirteen spellers decided to spell and have fun. You don't even want to think about what the world would be like now had they not made their decisions. Keep this important lesson in mind.
I don't have the list in front of me at the moment so I will have to come back later to tell you the winning word. Joe Nofziger is our 2nd place winner for the 2nd time in a row. Will he be a contender in our next Bee? Will you? Let's find out!
