7th Annual Challenge Bee, Member Review

Seventh Annual Trivia, Spelling, and Vocabulary Challenge Bee: Philly Edition.

Saturday, August 11, 4 -5:30 p.m., by Melanie Humphrey-Sonntag

The adorable Melanie Humphrey-Sonntag was in her place, complete with bee antennae and wings to kill us with the worst words you ever heard! Even she couldn’t pronounce several of them. Here are a few of them: opprobrious, denouement, irascible, and sesquipedalian. The multiple-choice definitions and trivia were just about as challenging. (one or two of the questions below) Winners were amazing! The spelling winner got 10 out of the 20 correct. They were in a lightning round at the end. The Barry Cohen of Rutland, Vt. who has won the $100 gift certificate, I was told, won twice before. Great fun!
