I do help with this Pow Wow and enjoying going each year, but it is not a PowWows.com event.

I do agree that a PowWows.com Pow Wow is a great marketing event for the site.

But since the site doesn't have much and doesn't make much money, it is hard to have a large contest Pow Wow.

I would think that the purpose would just be to bring everyone from the site together. As for it being a great marketing tool, that would just be an additional benefit of it.

I think it would be very easy to get the head staff from the Virtual Gathering. The problem is finding a site for free with free insurance in a good location. For me, of course, having it in SC is the best location. But I don't think that everyone is going to be willing to drive several hours to SC.

Ooh! Ooh! I would! Yeah yeah I know I am only from North Carolina and that's not far, but I would if it was out west and I had time to plan. People who really want to do things find a way. So is the nature of life! That's my opinion though. And hey... if I can't go, all I ask is that they take many pictures and post so I can see everyone. With many people knowing people close by, there is a thing called carpool and charter a bus. People living near each other will find a way, if it's something that they really want. I'll get off the:36: and stop. Take care and keep coming with the ideas.

Good idea people...have a powwow!

Only thing is, I live far, far away from SC so I can't attend....or can I?

I'll just go on the webcam, and if someone will be so kind as to put a monitor on a lawnchair... Then maybe someone could tape some gloves to the monitor so's people could 'shake my hand'...
It'll be just like I'm there...

ahhh just kidding... but I guess u could pu the powwow on web cam if u was so inclined...

I'll be the class clown!!!!!!

One thing, you could move the powwow across the country every year pick a new spot, I know lots of people that travel days to go to gathering, crow fair, schtmezin.....
And every year it oculd grow bigger, or just keep it in one spot, and still people will travel.
I guess it's up to webmaster
But this is a good idea
many people on here have good ideas and I would like to meet everyone, so I could put a face with the message

No, it doesn't have to be in SC.

I was trying to make the point that it is going to be hard to find a place to hold it. The location needs to be a place where I and the other staff (whoever they may be) can work to get things organized. It will also need to be in a place that is convient for lots of people to get to. And of course be free!

It would be very interesting to say the least.

That would be very interesting to see a Pow-wows.com Pow-wow. :Argue I mean...who would be running the whole show? Would everybody be taking a poll as to who would be the emcee, host drum. etc. etc.

You know the demographics of the group. Broadly speaking here would be the best place/state in the North America geographically?

Hey - I gotta idea!!!!:18: :uptosomet

Why not find a place big enuff to house a big event like this and see if they will donate their spot for the pow-wow. Let that be the determining factor as to where the pow-wow will be.

Has this been mentioned before?? Like I dunno, twice???? :p But maybe it's a start - and you already have that arena director dude, Riverwind. Who is offering his services free, right???

Let's do this.

Comp, community, whatever - let's just do this. I will volunteer to do something - no frybread - but I will do something. No M/C, but I can write his material, eh??? hehe :)

How about a TBS special of highlights from Gathering of Nations or Shimitzen? Or do they do that already?

What advertizing sponsors would you like to see?

GEOGRAPHICAL CENTER

WRONG! WRONG! SHEESH!

The geographical center of the United States is at LEBANON, KANSAS, which is in north central Kansas on Hwy. 181 and 13 miles south of the Kansas-Nebraska state line. Hwy. 181 becomes Hwy. 281 in Nebraska going through the first little town of Red Cloud.

Approximately 50 miles to the east is the site of the Pawnee Indian Village Museum located between Republic and Lovewell, KS. Been there, done that.

Singerdad must work for the Greater Black Hills Chamber of Commerce. Sheesh.

Location, location, location

The geographic center isn't hardly relavent. More important is where is central for a majority of the population of powwows.com. and close enough to facilitate the planning/organizational committee.

Yo webmaster anytime you want to step in please do
Seems people are getting alittle excited here:wall:
It's a good idea for this pow wow but now it's going the way of most Indian Centers(meaning to amny arguements not any action)
WHo's this who's that and where we going to have it.
i think you need to make a choice, and get on with it, looks like everybody wants this to happen
so let it happen
Everybody else, calm down
take a breather

Ya' know, when I first came up with the idea of having a powwows.com powow I had a certain vision in mind. People gathering together to share the common bond we all here on the board seem to have with our passion of the dance circle.
Then as posts went on I didn't see how that would be feasible anytime soon. Then I suggested a big get together at the National Powwow since that would be the one most people would try to make.
Now were back to talking about the powwow again. I feel this is putting the travois before the pony. Let's keep our enthusiasm and keep brain storming. Also, how about giving the get together a try at first. Maybe discuss it there and THEN proceed with the plans to hold a powwow later.
If people want to scout places they would like it to be held and see if they could get it donated then that could be info we would have when the time IS right.
My opinion of the perfect location is the one the majority could make it to.
SOooooooooooooooooooo, what do you say. How 'bout seeing what we can do to make the gathering happen first and let it be our proving ground on how we CAN come together for a common interest in a GOOD way!!??!!:Thinking :Thumbs :Thinking

The ideas good.

70 posts so far. 71 with mine. I don't see it happening.

What's wrong with the 500 or so powwows in the U.S. and Canada already?

Aren't they fun enuff for you all?
