It is common knowledge by now that the 2013 Panhandle Pow-Wow had a few setbacks. With a relentless rainstorm overhead people still gathered at the park during the day and the bars and hotels at night. We huddled under whatever shelter we could be find and talked and laughed. Some even ventured out into the park to walk and skate around and inspect the obstacles that this legendary park had to offer. Something also happened that year to set the tone for years to come. There were a special group of people that attended that year, who despite the weather, stayed at Kona and camped out under tarps draped over a swing set and with dying flashlights continued to party on. It has been said that those people communicated to the blade gods and asked for them to grant us a sunny day to hold our event for 2014. And the blade gods answered blessing everyone with an amazing experience the following morning, and hopefully for years to come.
