2017 Slam Team Chosen

Hello all,

On May 17th 2017, at the Ambrosia Centre in downtown Victoria, we held our Slam Team Finals.
I, your blogger, was in Japan at the time, and am finally updating this page now, a wee bit late, but that's as may be.

Slam Finals Competitors were, in order of first round-
Hookshot
Catherine Garrett
Leslie
Pamela Stewart
Tanya Christie
Jeremy Loveday
Dana Neily
Sarah Wilson

We're sending 4 poets to Peterborough this year, after a short slam season of only 4 slams, due to another loss of venue, which is now corrected since we found the wonderful Caffe Fantastico.

The 4 poets who won Slam Finals are, from 1st place to 4th-
Jeremy Loveday
Tanya Christie
Pamela Stewart
Sarah Wilson

Tanya Christie stepped down and Catherine Garrett, who came in 5th, has taken her place.
We wish them all the best at the 2017 CFSW.

January 2017- First Slam of the Season

Hello folks,

The 2016-2017 Slam season started a few months late due to a venue issue, but now we're fully settled in at our fabulous new venue at Caffe Fantastico in Quadra Village and we've had our first slam. And because we had no venue for Fall 2016 slams, we let this slam decide who to send as our CIPS representative to Vancouver this April.

Did you notice we've moved to Wednesdays? That's a thing too.

Without further ado, here are the results from the January 18th Vic Slam.

Round One-(in the order they went to the mic)
Annie Lepage- 22.4
Pamela Stewart- 25.2
Liam McGuigan- 23.7
SJ Valiquette- 23.0
Delaney Dunn- 22.9
Jeremy Loveday- 27.2
Anthony- 26.8
Elizabeth Keyte- 21.5
Tanya Christie- 25.2
Kelsey McMillan- 22.9
Catherine Garrett- 24.1
Dana Neily- 27.8

Round Two-(in the order they went to the mic)

Dana Neily - 27.7
Jeremy Loveday - 27.3
Anthony - 26.4
Tanya Christie - 25.6
Pamela Stewart - 25.4

Scoring high to low after round Two-

Dana Neily - 27.8 + 27.7 = 55.5
Jeremy Loveday - 27.2 + 27.3 = 54.5
Anthony - 26.8 + 26.4 = 53.2
Tanya Christie - 25.2 + 25.6 = 50.8
Pamela Stewart - 25.2 + 25.4 = 50.6

And congratulations to Dana Neily for winning the Slam and going on to represent us at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam.
