A huge evening, 97 folks in all, were present to hear 11 storytellers. I tried comedy for the first time in my life and failed miserably, but that is not the point. The point is to try.
Everyone else did much better. Before time penalties, 9 storytellers were within the 23 to 25 point range, and two, Sam Lennox and Anne Wheeler, were up in the 27 and 28 point range respectively. But alas, those time restrictions. The final results have Dave Sullins first, Jo Anna Hope second, Betsy MacGregor third, Sam Lennox fourth, and Michel fifth.
Our thanks to all the storytellers who made this evening so special, including: Anne Wheeler, Jeanne Crosby, Ike, Tanny Cooper, Mary Joyce, and Tolling.
Our next Story Slam will be on Sadie Hawkins Day, Monday, February 29th, from 7:30 to 9:30 at Casa Luz. Sadie Hawkins was part of the Little Abner cartoon series several years ago. On Sadie Hawkins Day, a woman could ask a man for his hand in marriage. Any suggestions for a theme at this next Story Slam would be appreciated. Ron
