Ballabajoomba Poetry Slam
The 1st and the 3rd Friday of each month (occasionally other Fridays)
The Tango Tea Room

(361) 883-9123
(http://ballabajoomba.tripod.com)
Open Mic 8-8:30 p.m; Open Slam 8:30-11:00

Each slam max 16 poets; cuts determined by the number of poets who signed up for a given slam and the time. Usually three rounds with the final cut to 3.

Slamoff determines who qualifies for the team to travel to NPS. To qualify for the slamoff, a poet must read 5 times during the year or make three times the cut to the top 3. Semis narrow down the field to 9-10, the final slamoff determines the team. If one of the top 4 poets cannot go to the Nationals, the next highest ranked poet is qualified for the team.

Slamoff determines who represents Ballabajoomba at iWPS.

Ballabajoomba Poetry Slam
During the season (November - July) -- the 2nd and the 4th Thursday of each month
(occasionally other Thursdays (and other dates/venues))
The House of Rock, 511 Starr Street, TX 78401
(361) 882-7625
sign up 8 p.m., open slam 8:30-11:00

We try to accommodate as many poets as possible (usually up to 16 poets); cuts determined by the number of poets and time we have. Usually three rounds with the final cut to 3.

Slamoff determines who qualifies for the team to travel to nationally sanctioned events (NPS, Wow, iWPS). To qualify for the slamoff, a poet must read 5 times during the year or make four times the money round (usually, the top 3 poets). If necessary, semis will narrow down the field to 9-10. If one of the top 4 poets cannot go to the Nationals, the next highest ranked poet is qualified for the team.
