bridge...

well when going to the casino parking lot for the powwow, crossed at Niagara cuz that was the most logical choice but maybe for this trip I am coming from Sault Ste. Marie and so maybe heading straight down through the states??? I guess I will have to look into it. thanks for the reply and so if I get to Buffalo, half hour from there eh...thanks.

Why no Southern Dance Categories

??? In Cali, AZ, N.M., Louisiana, Kansas and Oklahoma for example they have northern categories. Why is it that so many pow wows up north don't have southern categories????????
