    Change of plans for us.

    Here is what I remember from last year.

    Powwow info.
    Drum contest is split N & S they paid 5 places last year. Then one extra northern drum showed up. Made it 6. So the committee up'd the drum contest $1000 for each place (on both N & S, even there was only 3 S) and added an extra place.. THAT WAS AWESOME! 9 or 10 drums total.

    Dance Contest is pretty normal. With adults being split into 18-39 and 40 - 59 ( i think) them golden age (with categories.)

    Powwow times: Be award of Grand Entry times. Everything started about an hour earlier than normal. For example: Normal GE 7:00 pm But they started at 5 or 6 then ended at 7:00 or 7:30. This powwow is in conjunction with the Seminole Tribal Fair. And they have a lot of stuff going on and only that one big arena to have everything. So in the evenings they had concerts or princess pagents etc. I don't know if that will be different. Because of the time this powwow is all business, GE, Contest, Exhibition and get out. Then the last day (Sunday) was more relaxed and of course the switch dance. (Wayne S. was up to parr)

    The Hard Rock has a mini mall with some awesome stores and eateries there. So there is a lot to do in the off time. The hotel will probably remain booked and the price was $500 plus last year too. We stayed at another hotel and drove over or taxied over.

    Site Seeing: We took a cruise on an aligator reserve. That was totally cool. We also went to South Beach, that was cool too. Just be sure to take your walking shoes there. Parking was hard to find.

    Weather: The nights were pretty cool. But last year either while we were there or right after we left, South Florida had the worst cold snap in years. The news people were warning homeless to cover exposed skin because it was gonna dip in to the 30's. We were laughing, because that was our daily high.

    Well I hope that helps. You all have fun. I'm gonna try again next year.....

          Kiyaanii, Thanks for the great insight.
          I know it will come into good use. That's for sure.
          One thing I'm looking forward to is more time to sightsee. Especially if the powwow wraps up early enough.
          We arrive early enough on Thursday too, so we can have alot of the day to either sleep (haha) or be tourists. I say Touring around is the way we'll go.
          Miss Niss: Are we gonna rent 2 separate cars or 1 minivan for all of us to caravan around in? LOL

                Ginger,

                I have been to the Dania Jai Alai Arena! I will probably go on the Wednesday night when we get there. Thanks for the information! See you on Sunday!

                Bux,

                Good seeing you this weekend! Where are you playin'? I wanna come support you?

                Linds,

                We will finally get to meet! There are a bunch of us coming from here. I just got an email that some friends from Texas (great party crew) just booked their flights too!
                Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

                    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! it'll be good to see you two! :) i can't wait...

                    they have airboat rides/tours that you can take through the swamps and stuff... but i suggest you take one that's given by a native (of course!)... we took one from buffalo tiger (google him) and our "tourguide" was this dude named ernie redwing...

                    it was SOO much fun - were were the only ones on the ride, so of course it lasted a lil' longer and we could joke w/him about all the crazy stuff tourists do...

                    anyway - he took us to visit these alligators that lived in swamps and stopped the boat right by where the live.... and once he called 'em, they swam right up to the boat! man, these alligators were HUUUUUUUUUGE too! i coulda reached out & touched one, but i didn't dare. we learned all kindsa stuff about the waters and plants too - very interesting!

                    i could tell you all about it, but you should just see for yourself! it's def worth it and a lotta fun :)

                          YES! Let's do it. The girls will for sure love it.
                          Should we call and book it? Dunno for when though.

                          2 weeks and we'll all see one another. I need to start getting my summer clothes outta my storage bins.

                                  Just wondering what everyone was up to this year, and what have you done so far,

                                  How do pow wow affect your life? like is it all you think about and plan for a year in advance, or do you grab...

                                  Hi, I'm here because I know I need the support in battling to dance again for years now. I'm 33 years old and I have always been taught the old ways, our values and being a strong native woman. I have the tools, the resources, the passion but I need a boost here. I was brought up in the pow-wow circle...
