Austin Poetry Slam says
TONIGHT IS THE FINAL CLEARINGHOUSE SLAM!!! Woooohoooo!!!

Info for poets wanting to slam:
1.) Tonight we will pull the list at 8pm.

2.) Poets MUST sign up in person. No proxies tonight. We HAVE TO make sure the slam runs as smoothly as possible and that includes list sign up and the draw. Poets please pay attention to when the host calls for the draw.

3.) There are no X's from the Vortex slam except for last week's host. We will take as many poets as possible (usually 20-22 poets, we still have to end before 11pm). Poets will be split into 2 groups during the draw. This will determine if they will perform in the first round or the second round. Poets are guaranteed one poem, as clearinghouse is not structured as a traditional elimination style slam.

4.) Slam will be 3 rounds constructed as follows:
-Round 1: First group of poets slam. Regular slam scoring/judging. Top 2 advance to the third round.
-Round 2: Second group poets slam. Regular slam scoring/judging. Top 2 advance to the third round.
-Round 3: Top 2 from each previous round compete.
Poet 1: Poet w/ the Lower of the Top 2 scores from the first round.
Poet 2: Poet w/ the Lower of the Top 2 scores from the second round.
Poet 3: Poet w/the Higher of the Top 2 scores from the first round.
Poet 4: Poet w/ the Higher of the Top 2 scores from the second round.

5.) Winning DOES NOT secure a slot in APS Grand Slam Finals. The APS Last Chance Slam is a poets last chance to earn points towards Quarter Finals #4 and APS Semi-Finals.

We're all super duper excited for tonight! Tonight is the last open slam of the season. Next Tuesday is Quarter Finals #4, Tuesday after that is Semi Finals, and Grand Slam Finals is Friday, April 10 at the Paramount! Make sure you get you tickets for Finals! We're almost sold out! Poets can get discounted tix from Tova Charles while they last.

Next week is quarter finals, the following week is semi-finals, and then we jump into finals!

Hooray for the horserace!
