        It would all depend on who is judging, the age brackets of the judges, etc. If the judges are a bit older, they tend to favor the old style - the ones with the traditional four beats in the second verse. The younger the judge, the more they lean more towards the contemporary with 10-15 honor beats in each verse.

        I would say if the judges are mostly 40 - over, it would be a toss-up between Eagle Feather, Snake Island, Smokeytown and Mystic.

        If the judges are mostly 20-30, I'd say Bear Creek.

        A single mess-up by any one of these groups could determine the placement.

        Watch the judges closely, you'll see what I mean.

        No matter who wins, the dancers will have some good songs.

        Good luck to all.

          What? No Host Drums?
          by WhoMe
          There is a powwow in Tennessee that called to ask for some advice.

          They said they wanted to do something different this year.

          Instead of host northern and southern drums, they want to instead have a drum contest.

          They said they would offer $4000, $3000,...
