Paul and I emceed the Yellowstone County Spelling Bee for the twenty-second year in a row. Which sounds impressive, except for the fact a lot of the other volunteers have been involved for much longer than we have.

Wikiwiki, expiation, and tetrarch were just some of the words I heard Saturday morning.

I want to thank the following for making this event possible each year:

  • Computers Unlimited
  • Allegra Print & Imaging
  • McDonalds
  • City Brew
  • The Burger Dive
  • Billings Gazette
  • Rocky Mountain College
  • Target
  • Montana Court Reporters
  • The Skyview High Auditorium staff
  •  Yellowstone County Commissioners

And a special "shout out" to Lawrence Leon and Aaron Swan. They did the sound and really hustled to get things set up by 9 a.m.

One other note: I used spell check to write this today.
