    I just wanted to make everyone aware that tabulations are open until 30 minutes after the powwow is over (I gotta get to cleaning up the grounds). The only thing you will not see are judges names. We try to run the fairest powwow by opening the is only fair and their ARE your points. There's no fee or judgement.

    I understand some ppl actually take down their pts for themselves just to see how they did, even if they won.

    I wanted to thank EVERYONE that came out and dealt with the heat in their outfits. We're just getting back into contests, so sorry if things were a little mixed up (schedule-wise) on Saturday. I always try to get all you guys out early on Sunday but the Hawaiians/Polynesians slowed things down (traffic), that's why the cut on the teen and JR contests.

    Thank you once again!!!!

    FYI - the next 3 powwows ARE CONTESTS as well despite what you've heard.

    4th in Womens trad...I think her name is Erin Meeches. I took 3rd in women's smoke dance. It was a women's fancy special but I missed the winners...I was trying to cool down.

    I want to share an interesting information for you
    by Celena
    I'll start out by saying the usual things were good about this powwow: the drums and the dancers. It's them that ultimately make or break a powwow, for the most part. There were some really great specials and the dancers really put up a good competition. The weather was mild, and it was not unbearably...
