How many of you go to non contest powwows?
 
I just wanted to get a feel for how many would attend one since all I see are contest powwows nowadays.

I do. Not all the time, but I go once in a while.

Yes! It's a nice change of pace. The big plus is there's no crybabies at tradish pow-wows! :thumbsup:

I do. People aren't so uptight as they are at a competition powwow. They don't feel as threatened.

I like non contest pow-wows, especially during the off season, they are fun to just go and chill at.

NCheyGirl21 03-03-2005 08:33 PM

Non-contest powwows.....
 
My family goes to powwows. If it is noncontes or contest. The Whorley powwow from last weekend the small ones around here and a few from afar. They are all great, better if there is a feed. I just love a good feed, visiting and the jokes. oh and the Potatoe dance ;)

I Love The Noncontest Pow Wow But As A Drummer You Compete To Get Host Jobs Nobody Wants A Drum Thats Never Been Heard Of But We Drum Them For Our Own Pleasure And The Dancers Who Can't Or Wont Go To The Big Ones.
