Unfortunately, no, not this year. This is the first year coming back to contests since '05. We're trying to get back into the groove.

Hey Tayin! Melissa Montoya here. We're bringing a handful of dancers from Michigan and Canada. We want to come out a day early and check out the fabric district and I can't remember where it is. Can you help me out again?....lol I would appreciate it. You can post it here or e-mail it to me.
We're looking forward to the pow-wow. Always a good time!

I JUST rolled in from Brooklyn. Made it to work too Tired but I'm here....lol
The pow-wow was run very well. I wouldn't expect less from that crew. Taiyin is ALWAYS organized :0) They treated everybody well and the hospitality was great!
I only have 1 complaint.......................................
IT WAS BEYOND HOT!!!......lol I know there's nothing to be done about the heat :0) It was soooooo humid on Sunday.
Anyway, I know somebody will be posting a full list later but here is what my sleepy brain can remember:

Men's N. Traditional
1st: Charles Hindsley
2nd: Alden Pompana
3rd: Matthew Isaac
4th: Novi ? <------ I think thats his first name.

Women's Traditional
1st: Melissa Montoya
2nd: ??? Clairmont (my gosh! Her name escapes me...lol)
3rd: Challis Isaac
4th: ??? Meechis (don't know her name either)

Men's Grass
1st: Keith Sharphead
2nd:?
3rd:?
4th:?

Women's Jingle
1st: Jackie Klein
2nd: Mary Ahenaque
3rd: Iliana Montoya
4th: Katrina BigMountain

Men's Fancy
1st: Jerry Cleveland
2nd: Daniel Tramper
3rd: ?
4th: ?

WOmen's Fancy
1st: Tanski Clairmont
2nd: ? (I can't believe I can't remember her name....lol)
3rd: Jen Martin
4th: Naomi Cleveland

There was also a Men's Southern Straight category. They added this category during the pow-wow since there were so many. I thought that was cool but I didnt get to hear the winners.
There wasn't a Golden Age category before anybody thinks I left them out.....lol
They also had some specials in: Smoke, Shawl, Men's Traditional, and Jingle BUT I don't remember who won those. It's hard to listen to everything with a 10 week old baby but that's the best I could do. Maybe somebody can fill in the blanks??
Again, good job to the committee! Your hard work paid off this weekend!

I wanted to thank EVERYONE that came out and dealt with the heat in their outfits. We're just getting back into contests, so sorry if things were a little mixed up (schedule-wise) on Saturday. I always try to get all you guys out early on Sunday but the Hawaiians/Polynesians slowed things down (traffic), that's why the cut on the teen and JR contests.

Thank you once again!!!!

FYI - the next 3 powwows ARE CONTESTS as well despite what you've heard.

Tabulations

I just wanted to make everyone aware that tabulations are open until 30 minutes after the powwow is over (I gotta get to cleaning up the grounds). The only thing you will not see are judges names. We try to run the fairest powwow by opening the tabulations...it is only fair and their ARE your points. There's no fee or judgement.

I understand some ppl actually take down their pts for themselves just to see how they did, even if they won.
