| Free

The first round of preliminaries continue, with eight teams competing in two simultaneous slams!

Location: Alma VanDusen & Peter Kaye rooms (downstairs from the main concourse).
Doors: 8:00 PM
Start: 8:30 PM
End: 10:00 PM

Every team in Hullabaloo will perform in one bout this night, either the first or second slate of prelims. The bout draw, determining the time for each school’s bout, will be conducted before the tournament begins.  All teams and audience members are encouraged to attend the entire evening, especially Bouts 1 & 2 at 6:00 PM.

The poems will be judged by five random members of the audience who are not directly affiliated with any of the poets or schools. They will give each poem a score between 0 and 10. We will drop the high and low scores, and each poem will receive a total score out of 30. Each bout has four rounds (three rounds of solo poems and a group piece round) so the highest possible team score is 120.

Teams:

TBA

Open to the general public. All Ages. General seating. Seating cannot be reserved in advance.
