You might hear a few dirty words spelled out at this year’s Grown-Up Spelling Bee on Oct. 12, 2012 at Bows and Arrows (1815 19th Street) presented by one of Sacramento’s premiere roller derby teams, the Sacred City Derby Girls. Listen in as participants sound out the words or if you feel spelling-savvy enough, try it out yourself! As long as you keep up with the correct spellings, you’ll receive $1 off tap beers. The rules of the bee will follow the Scripps National Spelling Bee’s format with each round becoming more difficult. Depending on what you can afford, pay a fee of $7 to $15 to enter. Sign-up for the competition starts at 7 p.m. and the first round will begin at 8 p.m. Proceeds from the event go toward Sacramento’s Gender Health Center, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide services that “embrace the psychological well-being and self-fulfillment of individuals coming out and/or beginning or in the transition process in a safe, supportive and welcoming environment,” according to their website (http://thegenderhealthcenter.org/).
