I like the idea of drums who don't place in contests receiving an honorarium. That way all singers who come and set their drum up and sing receive at least something. That's what I was getting at originally. Contests are fine as long as the singers involved realized that its just that, a contest, and winning doesn't give you the right to get a big head.

As far as groups hosting and not bringing a full crew, I think that stinks!! Some drums split their members up for the weekend and send 4-5 singers here and 4-5 singers there and both crews use the one drum name...that way they make more $$. That's just wrong in my opinion. If you're a drum group, you should stick together and go to the same pow wow. Its not uncommon in the east and NC especially to hear of the same drum in two places at once... :D
