Wednesday, March 19h---Coast Schools Slam (PAHS, AVHS, FBHS, MHS)
4pm at El Mundo on Main Street, downtown Point Arena
JUDGES---Miriam Owens, Janet DeBar, Joost Romeu,

It was a close match between Point Arena, Anderson Valley, Fort Bragg, and Mendocino. El Mundo on Main Street in downtown Point Arena (across from Pangea) was packed and people were standing in every available space. The youth were on, the poetry flowed. Everybody left smiling, not realizing that America started bombing Iraq as they were reading about peace, presence, love and hate.

PA - 620.5

Friday, April 4th---county wide slam (AVHS, FBHS, MHS, PAHS, WHS)

Point Arena High School, Mendocino High School, Fort Bragg High School, Laytonville High School, Willits High School, and Anderson Valley High School squared off at the Ukiah Little Theater in Ukiah. Once again, the Ukiah Little Theater was packed with eager readers and open ears. It was an incredible evening of profound expression and stellar poetic performances. We had more poets and poems than we had time, and we left hungry for more. Next year.
