            Hey, what's up Rezdawg? This weekend just opened up for us and we have been looking for a celebration to attend during this time. Came across this post and remembered being extended an offer to attend this celebration a while back but could not fulfill the offer because we were booked elsewhere at the time. Wondering if you could fill us in on the nearest place to get lodging? Let us know real soon if you can?

              Bemidji is the closest town, 26 miles away, alot of hotels in that town, and only about a half hour drive.

                    I talked to the pow wow coordinator yesterday and he said he "believes" they will start Friday, I am waiting for a call back from the head drum judge now. I will post the answer today.

                        I've been rackin my brain trying to figure out a way to go to this....lol. I am usually at Carnegie with the spouse and in-laws, sweatin it out for 3 days of Gourd Dancing.

                        Does anyone know what the age is for the golden age categories? If I can swing it and my parents want to go, they will want to know the age breakdown.

                          I think our golden age categories are 50+
