About The Event
- You will gather four bees for your hive. Don't have 4? No worries! We'll pair you up with other bees to create a team. Do you have 8 bees in your hive? You will buzz at one table together, but you'll split into two teams of four. One bee on your team will be the designated speller, or Worker Bee. The other members may consult and support the designated speller. The emcee will pronounce the word, provide language of origin, part of speech, give the definition, use the word in a sentence, and pronounce the word once more. Your hive will have 40 seconds to deliberate, and your volunteer staff Bee Keeper will have you line up to spell your word. No, you can't write down your word.
- One hive member will be the speller for the entire game unless your team purchases a cheat to change the team speller.
- The speller will wear their team name sign for scoring purposes when they line up to spell the word.
- Cheats are available for purchase to eliminate the competition and move your team towards victory. In order to use cheats during the rounds, your hive must purchase cheats before each round begins. We recommend pre-purchasing cheats or purchasing cheats at the registration table when you arrive. Find yourself becoming competitive? There will be time between each round to purchase cheats via cash or credit card during your deliberation time. Remember it's for a great cause!
- Keep an ear out for the Golden Buzzer, which makes you invincible, and allows you to advance to the end.
- Are you just watching the hives buzz, but have a favorite that you want to see win? Purchase Spectator Stingers, which allow you to tear off the wings of other bees by making them spell their word backwards.
