2018 Adult Spelling Bee featured Grate Spelers!

The 3rd Annual Adult Spelling Bee was held on Sunday, May 6th, 2018. The Traverse Area District Library and Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation Senior Center Network collaborate to offer this event for adults to relive the anticipation, adrenaline, and exhilaration of those grade school spelling bee contests.

This year’s bee featured seven teams, each with three adult members (one had to be age 50 or older). It was an afternoon of back and forth, word-for-word, spelling. But in the end, there can only be one winner! And here are your 2018 winners:

First Place: Grate Spelers 

(Sean, Jeanne and Dave)

Second Place: The Ancients

(Nancy, Marc and David)

Congratulations to all of the fierce competitors. We hope to see everyone and some new spellers at next year’s event!
