some teams bring 4, some 5, others 6 - how about the cost reflect that? what if $450 got your team registered and 4 passes, $500 got you 5 passes and $550 got 6? Or what if some other consideration was given... say teams were able to purchase an additional pass or 2 at 1/2 price or some other discounted rate? It's not just this - it's this on top of the (continued use of an) expensive hotel, and the increase in registration (a couple years back) and that doesn't take into account increased travel costs, etc.

Can we get this as a motion for the Slammaster meeting? Or is this purely a EC decision?

Even if it's a EC decision, I'd like to see it as a recommendation.

@Bro. Said_ It is an EC decision. Someone should request to add this to the agenda for the slammasters meeting and maybe even start a discussion about this in the slammater's forum.

Taken directly from the current Poetry Slam, Inc. Policies & Procedures

NPS team winners are awarded $2000 for first place, $1000 for second place, $600 for third place and $500 for fourth place by PSi.

Just a thought. I assume not all teams claim 5 passes, but I also assume PSI budgets for all the teams to claim 5 passes? If so, teams should be able to auction off their fifth pass to teams who want 6 passes. It will reduce the cost for the 6th parson on one team and increase the fundraising efforts of the team with 5.

For what it's worth, I agree with the comment that the 5th and 6th person generally don't add much to the show. They add to the TEAM (i.e. I feel that my team is more likely to place well if we have a coach to make strategy calls), but as far as the SHOW, my prep work is done months, weeks, days, and hours in advance. By the time I'm on stage, my coach isn't doing shit.

The calendar isn't up yet, but the event is (we think) in Chicago.
