Congratulations to Jackie Shrake for outspelling all the competition to claim this year’s championship! Out of a field of thirteen crackerjack spellers, Jackie spelled her way clear through Round 8. Her winning word was ALGORITHM.
Second place was taken by Sonia Cassell, who missed on the word CASEIN.
Third place went to Linda Volk, a first time competitor. A real sharp lady, we’ll be seeing more of her next year.
Fourth place was claimed by Judy Donaldson, congratulations Judy.
Prizes totalling $120 in cash and $45 in gift cards were provided by the Diversions Committee. Everyone got a bag of giant homemade chocolate chip cookies baked by Dee Houseknecht and Shirley Kabet. The judge was Kathi Flyte, the Prize Mistress was Mary Lee Napier, Tech support was Ken Kabet, and the WordMaster was Shirley Kabet. And we thank every one of them.
