This is why I camp out Friday night at the powwow grounds. You barely get to sleep a few hours before having to make it back the next morning if you stay elsewhere. There are showers available the next morning so you basically rough it for one night. Years ago, I got to stay at Days Inn which is less than two miles away west of the fair grounds, but they charge for an arm and both legs these days.

Few people realize it, but taking care of the sound system means being one of the first people onsite every morning and being the last one to leave at night. Having a good assistant and other volunteers go a long way to make it easier during the day and evening sessions.

Come down to the Phoenix metropolitan area in November for the 20th Annual Red Mountain Eagle Powwow and the 25th Anniversary Orme Dam Victory Days Celebration Powwow. The 2nd Annual Gilbert Powwow is in January followed by the 21st Annual ASU Spring Competition Powwow in April a week before GON.
