    Didn't mean to offend anyone! Basically, it comes down to pow-wow etiquette. If you know that dancers or are good friends with the dancers than you should pull yourself out as a judge. But if you are one of the dancers who place and knows you didn't compete fairly than yes shame on them and/or judges. As far as point systems goes, there are those selected few that won't particiapte (grand entry, inter-tribals, 2-step, etc) but still place. As an observer, I would have like to see more dancers dancing not just sitting around. All the regalias were so beautiful and would have like to see dancers "moves". For the money they receive they should be dancing all weekend not just one/two songs for competition.

    My comments are just that my comments. Don't mean to offend anyone, just speaking in general as an long time pow-wow supporter!

So, please BlackHorseButte and Cloud9one explain your discrepencies with the powwow/results or whatever.. Clearly you want someone to hear you out, otherwise you would have kept your comments and snide remarks to yourself. So since you started to express yourself, you might as well as finish it.
      I don't in anyway feel that I made any snide remarks. I'm sure that if you had a third party look at the results and look at who was judging then you would see something that would raise your suspicion. How many times did a Richardson or a Lynch judge the contest and then how many Richardsons and Lynchs' win? WTF!!?? Good dancing and all, but damn if your related to the contestants be honorable and pull yourself out of judging. Thats all. I STILL had a good time though.

        Now, just b/c they're all Richardsons and Lynches doesn't mean they're related - a lot probably are, but don't jump the gun on that. But, there probably was shadyness - It happens all the time & it really sucks - You have every right to voice your opinion and I agree, your remarks in no way come across as "snide". Oh yeah, dancers who won't "dance" kill me. I like to call them "powwow snobs."

            As stated before, last name does not imply relation ... In dealing w/ the people who were selected as judges, they know that they have a job to do and that they have to show integrity ... Regardless of who is competing or who they are related too or friends with ... I do not believe that someone felt like "GIVING" a less deserving dancer something they didn’t earn ... No relation will cause someone to judge a dancer more favorably than someone who just kicked their butt in competition ... It is understandable how last names could cause someone to infer preferential treatment ... but we have to trust the committee and judges selected … In the future, if u have these concerns, let them be known during the event ... In my opinion, all the dancers deserved 1st place ... I admire anyone who has the courage and ability to dance and compete ... No one likes to see their hard work tarnished …

            And yes … I had a great time at the powwow also … Party was off the hook … Big Ups to DJ C-Plus … Had everybody in the joint “Shakin that Laffy Taffy” …. He has a new CD out as well … Hit me up for his contact info … So was the After Party …. (We didn’t lay down until they Sun had risen … and others not until 11 AM) … It was a lil drama at the hotel after the Party … But nothing major … Once they saw we had a force of 10-15 rowdy natives, everything calmed down quickly …

              That's happened a couple of times to me too. I'd dance all weekend and my competitors would miss grand entry and/or intertribals and still place above me. OR I've even had people who didn't have part of their regalia or their hair wasn't done and still place above me. Now tell me that's fair.
              Don't ever stop dancing

                            Blackhorsebutte, I realize it probably sounded strange having numerous winners with the same last name but if you would have known the names of the dancers you would have realized that probably at least 1/2 of them were named Lynch or Richardson. Being that Barry puts on this powwow alot of the folks in Hollister support him and show up for his powwows. When the head judge picks judges he tries to pick folks that are impartial no matter what their name is. And as far as people missing Grand Entry, if you miss Grand Entry and still get place first place by all three judges then of course you are still ahead in points. Cece_ND, I know what you are saying about folks not dancing but we usually don't take points for social dances.

                            Thanks to all the powwows.comers that were there for your support. Maybe someone can remember next year that we need to take a pic!

                              I understand what has been said, but why post in the rules that you will only get spot check points if your are dressed and dancing your style...." No Walk Arounds" The two step that was announced to be a spot check..........a lot of dancers did not dance. Now was there a spot check or was that just said to get participation..............Enquiring mind wants to know.

                                Tallinjun you are right it says "No Walkarounds" but that is never really enforced. Don't ask me why - you would have to check with folks higher up than me. I don't even remember that it was said the 2-step was for points. I was probably doing paperwork and not hearing what was said. I am sure it was to get folks up to dance. As for the spot checks rule, that isn't in our rules so I don't know anything about that.
