Our "Saved" Story Slam ended in a tie! Cathy Sikorski and Marty Hoban each earned slots in the 2015 Grand Slam, which will take place in November. Ben Levine, who has already secured a spot in the Grand Slam, was also tied for the first place win. Our night kicked off with a remarkably fun story by Benjamin Levine about attending a high school party. We heard from 2011 Grand Slam Storyteller Eli Silberman, who told the hilarious story about he started a German bar brawl. Chuck Bauerlein told about dating a girlfriend who was born again. Veronica Redd told the story of being saved at a low point in her life. We also heard stories of drinking on an army base, being locked in a closet, and being trapped in the consulting project from hell.
To watch the three first place stories, scroll below. All the stories will be posted on the West Chester Story Slam YouTube channel soon, so check back.
Our next story slam is scheduled for October 13th and the theme is "Blood and Guts!" Tickets are available here.
