Slam Selection Processes / San jose Poetry Slam 2014

San Jose Poetry Slam
3rd Tuesday every month
@Fahrenheit Lounge
99 E. San fernanado st.
San Jose, Ca
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-San-Jose-Poetry-Slam/91754196269

We are a monthly year long slam. We didn't have a December slam because we had a venue issue. We still hold slams even during the non-point months. We started our season(points) in August since folks were back from Nats. From the start of our season until our last chance slam and finals in May we will have had 7 open slams. It would have been 8 if not for the venue issue. The January slam was our wowps qualifier so it was not a points slam. We didn't have a specific process for wowps, women had priority in the signups.

We take between 8 to 10 poets in round 1. 4 poets in round 2. Basic 3 minute format.

Our point system has gone as follows:
1st place: 4 points
2nd place: 3 points
3rd place: 2 points
4th place: 1 point
Hosting: 1 point

In May, we will have a last chance slam. The winner gets a spot in finals. For finals we will do a 3 round elimination slam. 12 poets in round 1. In addition to the last chance winner, we will take the 11 poets with the most points. If anyone declines we go down the point list. If we have one spot left but more than one poet with the next amount of points, we will do a draw between those poets.

General Discussion / Poetry Slam Opening Speech Needed
« on: June 05, 2013, 05:01:34 PM »
Hi folks,
Does anyone know where I can find the official opening speech that starts every slam. We are training a new host for our slam and I cannot find it anywhere. Even if it's not an exact word for word, I just need to write up a thing for him to say explaining everything from what slam is, rules, judges responsibility, etc. I don't want anything important left out.

Is there anywhere on here that it is posted? I tried searching the internet but got junk. If anyone has a link or a copy or anything it would be greatly appreciated. I recently took over as slammaster, we are about to b e at a new venue, and have a new host that has never done slam. I am feeling very overwhelmed.

thanks
