This year is unique as the drum contest is open to all singing groups. I think that there will be some new groups step up and be noticed since this will be the first time Schemitzun is allowing all groups to participate in the singing contest. It should be a great contest this year, new groups, new songs and new categories!

Like BPlenty sez. "assuming they show up" Is there a limit on how many drums can enter? There's a lot of groups who don't travel too much that many people haven't heard. They just might travel to this one cuz of all the hoopla about Ska-mitz. Trying to pre-determine a winner is pretty hard.

Whaddif 200 groups decide to go? Judge them on 1 song 2-times thru? This is gonna be a madhouse I betcha.

Anybodies guess on how many groups are in U.S. and Canada? < This is what the drum judges will look like if they all show up.

I think it will be interesting this year with the open drum setup, but isn't interesting good??
Here is my prediction for N. Contemp.:
1.Bear Creek
2.Black Stone
3.The Boyz
4.Whitefish Jrs.
5.Northern Cree

I do agree with 4 Schizzal on the point about G.O.N..
....and with the open drum some of the long standing drums just MIGHT get some new competition.

But that is what these old dawgs need to stay on their toes!!!!!


LAYDER!!!!!!!

Hey come on now people. Sure Bear Creek sounds good, and they have that drum group image these days, but honestly at Gatherings, they sang good songs, sounded quality, but, what's with their beat? They sound like they're gonna pick it up, then it stays the same tempo. They sound good, but their beat could use some work.

but hey I'm the new guy here on the block, so maybe my comment won't count yet.

You know it is possible to pickup the beat without picking up the tempo! As a matter of fact, it takes alot of skill to do that sort of pickup.
Anyways, I will try to predict the future for only the original and contemporary categories; ORIGINAL
1st: Battle River
2nd: High Noon
3rd: Mandaree
4th: Snake Island
5th: Eagle Flight
6th: Mountain Soul
7th: White Tail
8th: Red Bull
CONTEMPORARY
1st: Northern Cree
2nd: Bearcreek
3rd: Blackstone
4th: Blacklodge
5th: Eyabay
6th: EyaHey Nakoda
7th: Whitefish Bay
8th: The Boyz
If they all show up but I doubt it as there is a huge powwow up in Manitoba starting on the 27th and alot of these drums are invited there.

Well........it seems that the contenders for the top N.Cont. spot seems to be between Blackstone, Bear Creek, and Northern Cree. Although there aren't too many postings on this topic, that seems to be the forming trend. All three drums sound really tough and I do hope these fellas say "to hell with Manitoba" and show up at
Skee-mitt-sin. That would make an interesting show wouldn't it?
---------------------------------------------
~~~~~~TONIGHT~~~~~~
Bear Creek vs. Northern Cree vs. Blackstone
---------------------------------------------

I'm definitely gonna have to get the t-shirt.

May the best drum win.

I think its hard to make prediction as to who will even show up for the powwow(schemitzun2001). It can be an expensive trip to make, especially since your not guarenteed to place. All I can add is that if there are some new drums that show up They'd better be able to impress the judges. My prediction is everyone that places are going to be drums who won there before. And this year more drums will show up so no IDIOTS OR JERKS CAN SAY "THERE WAS NO ONE THERE TO BEAT, STATING WHOMEVER WINS 1ST PLACE DOESN'T DESERVE IT! So anyway Goodluck to all the groups, sing hard and remember its only a contest?!. P.S. I think everyone will show up, because if your group wins the open, overall, handdrum/49, and triple crown thats $50,000........NICE!

Well what happened to all of those groups that won last year? Was that a fluke or not? I know history was made when YB took the overall, first time a southern drum made it. So what about the returning champs coming back to defend they're titles? Gotta give them credit!!
