          What I hear

          I spoke with my nephew who was at the pow-wow in LCO last weekend and he spoke some of the singers of the drums that were there, and he made it sound like most of them are heading down to KS. If that is the case, there is going to be some good music this weekend.

          (TBZ, Pipestone, Battle River, Little Eagle, and Little Otter. Include the hosts)

          I also think Southern Boyz are going to be there too.

          I am there!

                      Moved to Topeka

                      We moved to pow wow to Kansas Expocentre in Topeka

                      Grand Entry at 500 pm Saturday
                      Grand Entry at 100pm Sunday

                      We got some dancing in last night due to the rain and mud we
                      closed down at 930 just in time before the down pour.

                      We couldnt park in our field where we usually park this
                      caused a lot of traffic problems.

                      Today will be a better day we dont get more than we can handle.
