Thank you for the invitation Karen G, here is the situation, We had a slam on December 18 and we have picked our 2010 Slam Team, but I don't think we would be certified in time to have a win and your in bout in 2010 because this was our 3rd slam of the season so we need at least 6 slams to certify a venue,  I do have tons of evidence to send PSI and I wanted to go to the 2010 Nationals So Bad.But I have decided not to rush it and follow the rules, put away my pride and be patient. You would might want to get in contact with Kurt Hardesty of slam Montevallo I think he is closest certified venue nearest ATL. I think in our current situation sending a poet to IWPS2010 is more suitable for us in which my organization and our Venue Manager have agreed to six more months of slams up until June 2010. March 2010 would be our scheduled 6 slam and we look forward of Certifying our venue then.


Thank you very much
