Kansas City, MO 64111

The slams are open to everyone to compete, up to 10 poets per slam.
Scoring system:
1st place - 5 points
2nd place - 4 points
3rd place 3 points
Sacrificial & Participation (no advancement beyond round 2) 1 point

The purpose of our point system is to award both the slam finalists and regular participants/sacrificial poets.

Slam season runs from January July, with top 5 point placements automatically making the team for the following season.
Team commitment / rehearsals run September August.

If any of the Top 5 decline the team invitation (or drop out), the invitation is extended to the next highest point ranking poet.
**Any team member who drops out of the current season after joining the team is suspended from team eligibility for following season.**

Pure Ink Poetry Slam
Gypsy Parlor
376 Grant St
Buffalo NY
Every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month

Our Poetry slam meets once a month for the Slam on the fourth Sunday of the month.

The slams are open to everyone to compete, the scoring system goes as follows.

1st place - 5 points
2nd place - 3 points
3rd place - 1 point.

Our season runs from August to April, and the final slam takes place in April.

Top 12 Poets who have accumulated points will be invited to compete in our Semi-Finals. If there is a tie, for the last few spots in the slam there will be a drawing of names to decide who will compete.

If there are less than 10 poets total, then we will host our semi finals, and our finals on the same night in April resulting in a 4 round cumulative slam.

If there are more than 10 poets then we will hold a Semi Final slam in April (2 Rounds) to drop our competitor pool down to 8 poets. Then we will host a Final Slam in early May (2 Rounds) to create our National Poetry Slam team.

If a poet declines the offer to be on the National team, then next highest scoring poet will be extended the offer.

1) Our slam season now runs Sept-May, instead of Sept-Apr. We do our finals in mid-May.

2) You only get 1 point for emceeing or scorekeeping/timekeeping, because you have to be chosen by the org team to do those jobs, and it's not free+open if THE CHOSEN get a boost.

3) This year, we only had 9 poets able to RSVP for finals in a timely fashion, so our 3-round finals was 9-9-6 instead of 10-8-6.

4) For far-away NPS, we will be sending a 4-person team and a coach. If the coach is someone on the 4-person team, we send a 5-person team.
