Visitors who imitate someone dancing of the opposite sex. Example, women who try to follow an older tradish male dancer. Geez. Poor guy.

There are so many I've seen that I don't know where to start.

i seen this one Southern Strait dancer (probably a wannabe) who wasn't ready for his contest. The MC announced his contest was to take place following the Women's southern cloth category. While the drum started to sing the women's contest song, the guy was too busy trying to put on his gear and hurring up, that he walks out and starts dancing. He didn't realize that he was dancing with the women. In mid song, he FINALLY realizes it, and he gets outta there really quick. A lot of people were pointing and laughing at him, but he danced in his rightful category afterwards. NO shame whatsoever!!!

I saw an old-style womens fancy shawl special a few years back, and a lady was getting down with some fancy footwork...i mean she was serious, had a look of concentration on her face...and I see something lacy down by her mid-calf. She was busy jammin out, and this white lacy thing was getting lower and lower, and I realized it was her underwear!!! When she realized what was happening, she spun around and bent down to pull them up (pretending she was gonna tie her moccasin) and the drum stopped when she bent down. She wrapped herself in her shawl and walked off...she was just laughing her a$$ off because she knew that everyone saw her. at least she had a good sense of humor about it...I would have been mortified!!! was a good laugh tho.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.. at least she could laugh at herself and find humor in it, instead of being all indignant. I think I woulda just buried myself somewhere and just stay hidden.

Wow - now you know you dance hard when you dance your lacy unmentionables off! She'll likely duct tape em on for further contests!

On my very first outing as an Arena Director at a major university powwow . . .

A little girl got too hot and sick in the middle of the arena. As a result, she "projectile vomited" yellow and green chunks across the dance arena.

Guess who got to walk out in the middle of the arena with a bucket and mop and clean it up in front of everyone?

c'mon guess?

Then

About 30 minutes later . . .

there was a fist fight (3 on 1) inside the arena.

Guess who got to break it up and pull bodies off the guy on the bottom?

c'mon guess??

That was embarrassing..that was when I was like..14 or so

Same powwow, later in the day
