Event description

Description

The impact of the ORANGE CRUSH is coming! It's time comrades. Get your brains ready for combat. Jeopardy meets Wrestlemania in this competitive spelling bee.

Get your word on to raise funds for our own Dennis Van Meer. Demonstrate your learning retention power and enter the N-D-P- Bee to send Dennis to Ottawa as our MP.

In the first round, contestants will choose three of six categories. In each, they will be tested on just one word from their cherished vocabularies and inner dictionaries for strength and grasp of phonics power (except when phonics does not apply at all).

The top 50% of challengers in the ring will advance to the second round. Here, they will engage in face-to-face combat against their closest friends and comrades. Only one of the pair will advance --

TO THE FINAL ROUND!

Sudden death spelling bee rules will apply as the English language reveals its most daunting challenges, its most irregular verbs and most passive aggressive adjectival nouns. This is no place for the hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobic (look it up, if you have the GUTS).

We're taking the competitive speilling bee out of fourth grade and opening it up to ALL challengers with the most elegant and complicated trash talk since Keifer Sutherland taught Doug Ford that he could not co-opt our Tommy Douglas.

ALL those who dare will wrestle with the contents of the Oxford Canadian Dictionary of Current English where the brutal nature of definition leaves no room for interpretation.

"Creative" spellers, those compromised by spell-check or stage fright can buy a ticket to act as spectators and supporters of this Orange Crush Combat.

To report a typo or spelling error, please laugh, wonder if it was intentional for the sake of entertainment, and then email info@stcatharinesndp.ca
