Wow - what a night.
You know, this year Vic Slam wanted to focus on encouraging new poets and strengthening our scene, and tonight proved it. Despite the fact that 5 veterans were out of town for the Vancouver Interational Poetry Festival - there was stiff competition and a first-timer, Matt McKenzie, killed it and took the title by 0.1!
And it was well worth it.
Here are the scores - and the points:
Matt McKenzie - R1: 26.5 R2: 29.4 Total: 55.9 Points: 4
Justin McGrail - R!: 27.1 R2: 28.7 Total: 55.8 Points: 2
Henry Barron - R1: 27.4 R2: 27.0 Total: 54.4 Points: 1
Miss Marie - R1: 27.1 R2: 26.0 Total: 53.1 Points: 0.5
Jacob Arts - R1: 26.4 R2:25.9 Total: 52.3 Points: 0.5
See you May 19 for the LAST SLAM OF THE SEASON BEFORE FINALS!
