    Glad to see you "keepin' it real".

    Just out of curiousity, do you have family in Macy Nebraska? You want to start there before you come searching on the internet. You never know what you'll get.

    To get a true picture of your purpose in life, you only get the whole picture when you listen with your mind, your ears and your heart. This way The Creator has a direct connection with you and only you...no outside interference.

    When you follow the will of IT that created you, understanding that your purpose is not for you...but for IT and all that IT has created, there can be no wrong except failure to be obedient. Only then do we jeopardize the gifts we are given.

    Its not the final destination that defines us, rather the journey taken!

                That's the spirit-
                Remember to keep an eye out for them bustle wearin' boys- they can put an eye out.........

                .......Don't expect to hear a trot song north of Nebraska,

                and if the AD or Emcee looks confused when you get in line for grand entry be ready for your contest song to be a sneak-up.

                    How to sneak up

                    Step 1. Take off your bells and feather.
                    Step 2. Make sure the lady runnin the fry bread stand is real busy or talkin with her niece that just had a baby.
                    Step 3. Use some papertowels to grab the frybread so you dont burn your hand,
                    Step 4. Run, and hope you are faster than her sons.....
                    LOL J/k

                    Seriously,
                    I been trying to figure out how we're supposed to sneakup for four years and still say we ain't supposed to be doin' it. Its annoying to say the least, but so often when you get North of the sanity line there usually aren't enough straight dancers to make a category so they just lump us in with the northern tradish. (Most contest in the great lakes don't even list straight as a category).

                    If it ain't the contest song I sit down. I have had one person come after me with "This is the song for the men's traditional, you should be out there" I then had to explain to them that they are Northern tradish, I am Southern, and the only thing I am sneaking up on is an Indian taco or a snag.

                    I have had this happen twice when I was head dancer- one time I knew ahead of time and just stepped out and waved a buddy of mine that dances Northern in to cover (made a great excuse to get somethin to drink). The other time I kinda got stuck out there- it upset me, upset the Northern dancers, and was real real funny to my wife and her friends.

                    What's worse, the one time I have seen a southern contest in this area they only had one straight dancer in regalia, so they asked all the traditional guys to take off their bustles and participate (upset me on multiple levels).

                    I've never been to Hunting Moon cause I am other wise engaged on that weekend (first weekend in November is busy enit?) so I can't speak for that event, but these are general observations of this area.
                    However there is at least one drum from this area that should be there that knows straight songs (even though they are Northern).
