London, Ohio - Pow Wow

I went to a pow wow over in London, Ohio this past weekend, put on by Brian Darst as a way to help raise money for the needy children of his community known as the First Annual Honoring Turtle Island Pow Wow. In addition to my own drum Red Shield three other drums, Thunder Nation, Wolf Creek and All-Nations were also there, there was a good turn-out for the first year, and as pow wows go, it is one of my new favorites. There was a good feeling in and around the circle, and It was good to be there.
What was really touching to me was Brian, he's a veteran, and a traditional dancer who has recently suffered a few strokes, and has come back to the circle as a way of healing himself, and took this pow wow on alone to help the children of his hometown. If Brian is reading this... it's an honor to know you and call you my friend.
I look forward to coming back next year and helping this pow wow continue to grow!

Paselo!

Also, thanks to TKMJ for providing the sound and donating the cds recorded on Saturday to be sold to raise money for the kids. It's always good to see you guys, and thanks for doing your part to help the kids too... it was noticed and appreciated!

Great powwow!!!!!!

The powwow raised some big bucks for chairity. Brian and his crew did a great job. The Dixie Depot Diner donated the land right next to the diner. It was great being able to have great security too.

The diner also donated the electricity for the sound system. He gave us all we needed. One of the cool thing the owner of the diner requested is several extra speakers around his parking lot. The owner named Gil, wanted more power from the sound system. "I'm giving it all she's got Capn!!!!!!" Next year we will bring more speakers and power amps for the guy. This guy is really into POWWOW!!!!!!!!!

If you travel Interstate 70 in Ohio and pass London Ohio, make the Dixie Depot Diner a regular powwow trail stop. The food is great and low priced. I will make this place a regular stop for chow on the road!!!!!

I don't have anything to add to what's already been said, except that it was a pleasure to meet Redshield and Nipke, and to see Ken again. The CD is excellent, as usual.

London Pow-wow

Brian and I would like to THANK EVERYONE that came to the
Pow-wow and hope you will be able to come back next year.
This was Brian's first time on putting on a pow-wow and I think he did a great job. It was a learning experience and had a very good time seeing our friends again and meeting new ones. As of last count there were approx. 4125 people that came through the gate. As of right now the money raised for the children is approx. $4000.00. We would like to thank the drums: Wolf creek, Redshield, All Nations and ThunderNation for coming and hope to see them next year too. A big Thank You to all the staff and Headman(Jack) Headwoman(Donna) Area Director(Logan) and Head Vet(Corky).The camping area was a nice area also and a big THANK YOU to Gil the owner of the restaurant.
Next year we hope to see everyone and want to invite you to come and dance with us.

Glad it turned out so well. I know it's really hard for a first time one to have that well of a success.

Maybe one of ya could start a new thread about how you got it together from start to finish. Might help others. Just a thought.
