Maria Bidgood: Spelling bee success

The 2014 Community Spelling Bee Committee would like to thank all who made the 2014 Community Spelling Bee possible.

The Honey Bees (our sponsors): Bud Werner Memorial Library, Steamboat Pilot & Today, the city of Steamboat Springs and Routt County Council on Aging. The Beekeepers: Bud Romberg (our pronouncer), Stuart Handloff (our emcee), Chris Painter and Susan de Wardt, of Bud Werner Memorial Library (our judges) and Bruce Lindahl (our timer). Our Spellers: LRC, LIFT-UP Lexiographers, the ABC's, the Book Worms, the Spellbinders, the Hayden Spellbinders, City Council Word Wizards, the Book Marms, the Walmart team, Dem Dames, Dem Other Dames and the Right Spellers. Without you, there would be no Bee. The Queen Bees (the committee): Jane Romberg, Pauline Bouchard, Kay Burch and Pat Pillow. The Worker Bees (our volunteers): the Kiwanis Club and Dorothy Lindahl.

And a special thanks to the staff at the Bud Werner Memorial Library for creating our word list; to all of our spellers for a fabulous display of spellmanship and to Old Town Hot Springs for the use of their clock.
