    Contest you only get you dance in your category and maybe 4-5 songs..... I've only been to a few, but I like to jam! And I like to jam all day long and into the early hours of dawn! Sorry but contest is weak!
    Ball Club, MN this summer sunday night didn't end till 12:30am! I would have loved to have dancing.....'stead I was sitting out tappin my footies all weekend! :Mad I could only imagine being able to dance and just can't cause "categories" and that drama!

          I like both and go to both, dance at both of em, etc. Nice to dance at traditional powwows and have that good feeling just dancing for the fun of it, but also nice to go to contest powwows and give it all you got and maybe leave with a few extra bucks.

              Successful Contest Tabulation Strategies?
              by Str8Dancer49
              Ok, considering all of the drama associated w/ the tabluation @ Sycuan, and that other dance w/ the jacked up drum contest w/ an 8-way tie, and some other goofy stuff I heard about people winning in like 3 different categories at a dance in central TX.........

              Why don't we all post contest...

              Today is early in 2006.

              That said...I've been reading previous posts on other forums about dances.

              Competition dances.

              Hate. Discontent. Who made more points. Who was related to whom. Who was picked, who was not.

              What a setup for failure....

              Traditional vs. Competition?
              by Woodlands Daughter
              Growing up I attended pow wows often, but they were only traditional pow wows.
              I have started to attend them more often as an adult and last fall I went to a competition pow wow. I was not able to stay as long as I would have liked, but I was wondering about what a contest pow wow was like....
