So I was quite sick but I dragged my butt to the Mercury Lounge to provide the music and was I ever glad I did!

It was great to see my good friend and Copper Conundrum compatriot, Danielle K.L. Gregoire share the first ever Once Upon A Slam Grand Champion honours with David ‘Hobbes’ Hickey. They tied!

The final results were (and remember that finishing anywhere on this list is a big achievement because there were 35 competitors this season!)

1T. Danielle K.L. Gregoire 56.3
1T. David ‘Hobbes’ Hickey 56.3
3. Ron Langton 54.7
4. Kim Kilpatrick 54.6
5. Robin LeWilliam-North 52.8
6. Phil Nagy 52.5
7. David Merleau 51.3
8. Kathryn Hunt 50.3

All great!

Because I was not feeling 100%, Jessica Ruano handled scorekeeping duties which actually freed me up to play with the music a little bit. A few more times than normal, the music was chosen based on the story performed just ahead of it.
