Statement of Apology: iWPS bags
« on: October 18, 2011, 10:02:21 AM »
OFFICIAL STATEMENT
==============

Members of PSi and the Slam community,

While iWPS in Cleveland this past week was a great time, there was one unfortunate issue that bears noting officially. On the first day of registration an attendee brought and inserted a drug into some poet bags. The drug, while legal, was summarily removed from bags once the issue became known to the proper authorities. It is something that shouldn't have happened in the first place, drug or otherwise, and as the people responsible for the bags and what's in them, PSi and tournament staff apologize that this occurred. Please know that we have already taken steps to ensure that nothing like that happens again.

Again, we apologize profusely. This is another one of those situations that happens at every event that you don't think you need to make clear to people because it's common sense, yet you learn the hard way that you must.

Sincerely,
The Executive Council

Syd Malicious
