An Open Bee!
What a fabulous idea. ...launched to give people of all ages an opportunity to spell, noting that the 8th grade is the last chance most people have to participate in a spelling bee.

I think I shall look into this. I was third in our school bee in fifth grade. Sixth, I didn’t do quite as well. And then my school quit participating in the national Bee system. Oh, the missed opportunities. The shattered dreams. I knew I'd never make it to Wimbledon. But I thought I had a shot at the Bee.

You don't understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a fair to middlin’ speller, which is what I am, let's face it.
