Adult Spelling Bee Tickets
Tickets are now available for the Coos Bay Public Library Foundation’s first ever Adult Spelling Bee. Come be a part of the audience and cheer on your favorite team of super spellers. The $25 admission ticket includes appetizers and the opportunity to watch the heated competition live. Tickets are on sale at the Coos Bay Public Library, Ko-Kwel Gifts at The Mill, and Art Connection. There is still time to register a team for the spelling bee. Registration is open until April 10, 2013. Registration forms are available at the Coos Bay Public Library and online at http://bay.cooslibraries.org. The Adult Spelling Bee will be held April 20, 2013 at the Mill Casino and Hotel’s Salmon Room from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Not only will the winners claim bragging rights, but one of the lucky teams will win a grand prize, and all teams will take away event T-shirts and special awards. Registration is $75 per team of two or three people and includes appetizers provided by the Mill and an event T-shirt for each contestant. The library foundation is also seeking business and professional sponsorships for a minimum of $125 and up to $500, said Jon Littlefield, Foundation president. Sponsors will have their name and logo on the T-shirt and receive other recognition. Contestants must be at least 18 years of age. Anyone may put together a team, says Littlefield. “We want to see many of the good spellers of Coos County and we definitely want to foster friendly competition between various businesses and civic organizations,” he adds. The Coos Bay Public Library Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the library and its service to the community. Registration information is available online on the Foundation’s page at www.bay.cooslibraries.org and in the library. Registrations are due by Monday, April 10.
