    2006 Gon

    I probably will go back, I usually buy my tickets online and avoid the whole contravorsy with wrist bands. Seems like alot of people did that this year. I think that's probably why they ran out. Most of the people I was in line with for the Will Call were mostly anglo?
    But GON gives me a chance to dance to some awesome drums. I thought the wrist band issue was wrong though!!

    we usually decide to go once the flyer comes out to see what kinda specials there are and what not. My hubby was all about the midnight special this year so we had to go. BUT!! They whole wristband experience was not cool so that might affect our decision making for 06. We'll see..lol as many times people complain about how they are not going to gathering they all end up back there so we'll see....

    I guess someone can dance for me then. Cause some of us Ndns are putting our lives on the line just so these Ndns can dance.

    I hear ya on calling home and everyones gone to the powwow. My family wouldn't even be home to answer the phone....

    Dancing Plumes hit the nail on the head! The poster clearly tells everyone the prices of the powwow. Duh when you travel somewhere you pay for food, a room and all other things that come up. If you can't afford it don't go! I come out from Phoenix every year, so please all you haters stay home so there will be shorter lines to buy tickets, it will be less crowded and we won't have to wait so long to use the restroom and for a fry bread.

    We got up 2 in the morning and drove so we can get in line early, I'd be pissed off too. This powwow is too contraversial..............makes my brain hurt. LOL!

    i would imagine if you lived in the immediate area it wouldn't be too much of "problem" to attend - but look at most of the drums mentioned earlier - most have over a 24 hour straight (no overnight hotel - just straight driving) to get there.

    then to get hassled because u wanted to watch another drum and get kicked out. most of these drums just come once - just to say yea we won gatherings and don't come back for awhile - until they "forget" what the gatherings experience all entails...

    I will be in Iraq. I have been trying to make it to this powwow at least once in my lifetime. Next year, will be a no-go again, "UNLESS", I get the 2 week leave from Iraq in April. Not holding my breath though cause more than likely I won't make it again.

    Anyways, thanx Uncle Sam!!!!

    Other reasons is I have a damn job, and it is my vacation time and I don't have to go their and depend on winning. We all know are budget if it's not in your budget to have fun, stay the hell home. Some of you's, your mind is already made up before you leave for this powwow, lets go to this powwow and have a ****ty time, so I can talk trash on the computer when I get home. I am glad this powwow drained some of your pockets, you ungrateful selfish individuals. One day I will win there, you see that is a goal of mine. If I don't I will know that I gave it my best shot. To all the true champions who won, congradulations. A real champion is one who treats their competitors with respect.
    Ok your turn to start b ing at me, for telling you what really hurts the truth.

    untill 3 years ago i've only attended small traditional pow wows with 5-15 dollar admission charge for the weekend that had the local dancers and a bunch (2-3) drums that try their best.

    This was my first GON, and I loved it. I expeced to pay an pelt or two, and the crowds i guess didn't bother me, bc i knew how to find my friends.

    well...I'm definately going back in 06.

    Which Powwow is a Must See for the Powwow Virgin?
    by greagirl
    Yes, I confess it. I am still a virgin...a powwow virgin. I have been heartily assured that should I attend a powwow and hear the drums that my wayward hearty helping of Native blood would rise up and do the brown skin boogie. (Sorry I have not the gadgetry as one person here apparently has to measure...
