Interested competitors, ages 18+, may begin to register starting at 6:30 pm. Each competitor will receive a number indicating the order in which they will be called up to compete–not necessarily according the order in which they registered.
Registration will end at 7:00pm, but will include those already in line by 7pm (or if we need more participants–goal of at least 15).
Once registrations are completed, the rules will be announced and the competition will begin.
No electronic devices may be brought to the stage.
Contest is single-error elimination, unless everyone in the round misses their word, in which case the round will be played again with new words.
Contestants will have a timed 30 seconds to begin spelling, and another 30 to finish.
The Pronouncer will read the word, give the definition, use it in a sentence, and then repeat the word one additional time.
Once the Pronouncer finishes, the timer will put 30 seconds on the large digital Cross-Fit timer.
During this time, the contestant may ask the Pronouncer for any alternative definitions or pronunciations.
Contestants must spell their words verbally.
Failure to start spelling by the end of the first 30 seconds will lead to elimination.
Once the contestant has started to spell, the timer will be reset for 30 more seconds to complete the word.
Last person standing is the winner.
