[ID: A person raises a scorecard with an 8.4 score. In the background are other audience members and a person holding a 9.1/end ID]

The second slate of prelims kicks off, with all 16 teams competing for the second time in less than 24 hours!  Following Round 1 of preliminary competitions on Friday night, some teams are still in it to win it and some teams are going out with a bang, so Round 2 is bound to be mind-blowing!

Location: Alma VanDusen & Peter Kaye rooms (downstairs from the main concourse).
Doors: 1:00 PM
Start Bouts 5 & 6: 1:30 PM
         Bouts 7 & 8: 3:30 PM
End: 5:00 PM

Every team in Hullabaloo will perform in one bout this afternoon, either the first or second slate of prelims. All teams and audience members are encouraged to attend the entire evening, (especially Hullabaloo Finals at 8:00 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 mandatory group piece round) so the highest possible team score is 120.

Bout Schedule: TBA

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

Accessibility info

The VPL Central Branch has elevators to reach the downstairs rooms where the Hullabaloo events are being held. There are wheelchair accessible bathrooms. For more details, refer to their list of facilities.
