rusty

The weather outside was frightful
But inside we were hosted by D-Lightfull
Surrounded by fans and fam
Let us slam, let us slam, let us slam

It was the final CapSlam of 2013… and the last chance to try and get a spot in the CapSlam CIPS Qualifier!

IT WAS HOT!!!

D-Lightfull was on stage… DJ RPM was providing the atmos… Kay’la Fraser was welcoming at the door…

Time for the open mic! Chuck and Angel Heart set the mood and then it was time for the SLAM-A-bam-A-DING-DONG!

First, we needed a little blood to soften the stage and it was super-start, Kay’la Fraser on point! 8.9 9.8 9.4 9.1 9.8 – 28.3

Then it was time for D-Lightfull to dip into the magic hat and the first name out was… Paco! 9.1 9.7 9.6 8.9 8.0 – 27.6. Big spread!

Next up was the longest name in slam Lana Kouchnir-Kachurovska! 9.9 TEN 9.2 9.5 8.5 – the first ten of the night but also a 1 point time penalty. 27.6

Visiting us on his birthday… Ali Bumaye! TEN TEN 9.1 9.5 9.4 – 29.1!!

Next was Mia Morgan! Her poetic prowess is too much for mere mortals to utter! 8.0 TEN 9.0 8.7 9.0 and a .5 time penalty – 26.2

Billie the Kid saw that Ali had set the bar pretty high. Challenge accepted! TEN 9.9 9.7 9.7 9.6 – 29.3!!

Rusty Priske brought out an old classic! TEN TEN 9.9 9.6 9.9 – 29.8!!

Abby Kassirer followed with the makings of their own classics. 9.7 9.3 9.8 9.7 9.6 – 29.0

Benoit Christie, uber-volunteer, turned into uber-slammer! 8.9 TEN 9.0 9.6 9.4 – 28.0

King Kimbit was there to challenge for her crown! 9.0 TEN 9.9 9.7 9.8 – 29.4!!

Joesph Sic read a lesson for every geek… 9.2 9.7 8.8 9.9 TEN – 28.8

Then came the feature… Allesandra Naccarato! She helped us celebrate the Solstice and survive the shortest day of the year!

Lots of poetry love for Allie!

Round 2 saw the top 5 having a mother go. First out of the hat was Billie the Kid! 9.9 TEN 9.6 9.5 9.6 – 29.1

Pretty impressive! Next was Abby Kassirer. 9.8 9.0 9.7 9.3 9.5 – 28.5

The middle part of the round was Kimbit! 9.8 TEN 9.7 9.8 TEN – 29.6! Big! Rusty would need at least a 29.2 to keep pace…

And Rusty Priske was next! 9.8 TEN TEN 9.7 TEN! 29.8 again!
