Update from Dylan Bird @ first day of 2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee

7:30 a.m. PST: Round one is over! Dylan cannot discuss it with me yet, per his confidentiality agreement. 

We are taking a break from the books for a few minutes. Dylan is trying to kick my butt in gin rummy! I'm not going down without a fight though,lol.

Study after that for about 2 hours. After 3 p.m. approximately, all first round tests should be completed, at which time we can try and figure out how he did. Very unscientific though....out of the 50 words they spelled, only 25 pre-selected words will count toward preliminary score. 

We will not know officially until Free round 3 is completed by all, roughly 5,30 to 6pm. Keep u posted as it goes....N
