Think you’ve got what it takes to out-spell your fellow Garland citizens? Show off your skills, win prizes, and earn bragging rights at the Nicholson Memorial Library System’s Adult Spelling Bee, held at Downtown Garland’s Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 16.
Interested participants may register at the Central Library before the event beginning Monday, July 3, or at Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery upon arrival in teams of no more than four. The Spelling Bee will consist of five ten-word rounds. Teams will be given a word and allowed to consult with their teammates for 30 seconds before signaling the bee judges that they are ready to spell. The teams will be eliminated after two consecutive misspelled words. Both the winning team and the first team eliminated will win prizes.
The Central Library is located at 625 Austin St. in Downtown Garland. Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery is located at 509 West State Street, also in Downtown Garland. Please be aware that photographs and video may be taken at Library programs for use in print and/or electronic media at the Library’s discretion. This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Nicholson Memorial Library System and Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery. For more information, or to register teams call 972-205-2501.
