I have seen a few.

I have seen a few ballots for hand drum. They are not too different from the regular drum contest.

Song....1-5 ususally ...does the song have a good rythm? Melody? Words or straight...stuff like that

Number of Lead singers

Leads...good, bad, sliced, crisp...whatever

Drum Beat...can they stay on beat? Or is this some kind of Jungle mix?

Number of singers....always on the ballot

I have entered a few of these...of course...I haveonly on once...but anyway...the hardest and most interesting hand drum contest I have been in is two songs three leads...three man contest...first go around your choice...second go around, hand drum head man made a straight song...everyone had to put in their own words. Little Island Cree took that one.

I wish people would pull out a few new ones for a change during these contests. I get tired of hearing...."darling dont cry..." and "your in Indian country now..." Not those arent good songs but c'mon someone, learn a new one this weekend....PLEASE!
