Man, I hope y'all have a rocking good time at this one. Wish I could get up there but work might not allow it.

Are y'all going to come to Hollister in April?

Golden Gate Inn is the host hotel but it hasn't been setup yet.
There is no 'host' drum since there is drum contest.

The hotel SHOULD be setup by tmrw evening, April 30.
Golden Gate Inn - 718-743-4000 ask for the Powwow rate.

There is a Comfort Inn and Best Western on Emmons Avenue in Brooklyn if you look it up online but be warned it's ridiculously expensive.

John,
You are correct. POINTS WILL BEGIN ON SATURDAY. DAY $$ for dancers on Friday. If you do come on Friday you can register but points won't begin until Saturday.
