Due to safety requirements, EVERYONE ON CAMPUS at any point of the day MUST BE REGISTERED and must wear their wristbands at all times. We need to be able to account for everyone at the event in case of an emergency. The registration desk will be located in the hallway outside of the Gym both Friday and Saturday. Please stop by to pick up your wristband and information packet. Additional patches will be available for sale at the registration table.
2 biscuits, coffee, and orange juice
2 hot dogs, chips, snack, and canned drink
Chicken sandwich, side, snack, and canned drink
Most people staying offsite eat breakfast at the hotel and old friends have supper at a restaurant. We are trying to keep from increasing the event fee. One way to do this is to reduce the amount of food we throw away by having an accurate count for meals. Please indicate the meals you plan to eat on your registration form.
Make sure your group has gender appropriate two-deep leadership. BSA Policy will apply. Leaders are responsible for obtaining and keeping tour permits and medical releases for those in their group. Bring camping type chairs for use in the Gym for Friday and Saturday night dances. Security will enforce a 1:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. curfew Saturday and Sunday. Sleeping space on campus is limited, groups may be combined to best utilize available spaces. Hotels are available close by.
All vendor spaces will be located in the upstairs hallway. A vendor fee of $10 will be collected and vendors will be required to display their vendor certificate on their table/area. All vendors must contact Tammy Miller to verify their space and location.
Classes and Instructors:
We are in the process of lining up a staff of very knowledgeable instructors. We will have sessions on Traditional, Fancy, Grass, Straight, and Ladies dance and clothing. In addition, there will be sessions on beadwork, quillwork, bustle construction, drumming, OA ceremonies, and much more.
Please share this information with Arrowmen in your lodges that have a genuine interest in Indian craft and culture. Also, please invite all Indian Lore Explorer Posts in your council. Since the Continuing Ed Center can accommodate separate bathroom and sleeping facilities for ladies, we want to invite female family members and members of co-ed Posts also. We will be using the classrooms and gym for sleeping quarters. We look forward to seeing you at the Seminar.
