Thats a pretty good idea...but that show is already soo jam packed with...but ima push that towards Paji Guys...ill get hold of one of em and ask them...Meistro said:three words: BEAR CREEK PARK..........team up with people who throw the Gadhre babeyaan da mela. They will have that program earlier in the day and you could use the same stage for the bhangra comp later.....That mela is always held in the summer in beautiful surrey weather. AHHHH MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!!! that would be so sick. Bear creek park already has nice bleachers, and nice grass to sit on.JayKay said:Dude ive been thinking of this comp for a long time...talked to a lot of organizers, but the FREE aspect of it just doesn't seem appealing to a lot of people. A lot of people don't throw bhangra comps any more for the reason of bhangra, but throw them for reasons of making money which really sucks. But id love to see a outdoor bhangra comp that's free in the summer in Surrey. I was thinking the Millennium Park where the jazzy b mela a couple years ago was held in Cloverdale wud be the perfect competition place.Meistro said:I like the way you think JasK..........also, I never noticed there were so many live teams in NA...nice
I Also went to Bakersfield about 3 or 4 years back with SFU giddha team ( i played dholki for them) and they had the entire show outdoors, Sabar Koti (dunt mind my spelling) was the guest performer. One of the best competitions ive been to. The whole outdoor aspect of it worked perfectly. Also, Bhangra NAtions west held their giddha portion of their competition in the summer at a park in Vancouver at the half time of a Kabbadi Tournament. Everything was free here. This is how it should be. A MELA.
