Experience a fun evening of good food and great beer in the tasting room of New Belgium Brewing Company (Map).

Join us at New Belgium's Brewery to learn about their beer and the brewmasters behind them. We invite you to pull up a recycled bike rim stool to the bar in our Liquid Center. Or, for instant gratification, crack open a bottle and kick back and relax.  Check out the entire menu of New Belgium's Beers here.

Silent Auction

To help defray conference costs, we will hold a silent auction during the conference. Auction items will be available for review and bidding Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with bids closing before Saturday’s banquet. Silent auction item donations, particularly raptor or wildlife items (books,
t-shirts, gifts, artwork) are gratefully requested from members and attendees. To pledge a donation contact Local Committee member.

Awards Banquet
Saturday, September 25, 2010
7:15 - 11:00 pm in the Marriott Ballroom

The Iron Family Dancers and Singers will exhibit the various styles of intertribal powwow dancing of the Plains Indian Tribes. Each exhibition dance will include an explanation of the dance regalia and origination of the dance style. A brief biography of each dancer will also be related to the audience. We aim to be highly interactive with the audience, sharing and promoting awareness of the richness of the Native American culture through song and dance, and short stories. If the setup allows, we would love to include the audience in a couple of social dances.

Tribes of family members present for this performance: Pawnee, Crow, Navajo, ogalala Lakota, Southern Cheyenne, Kiowa
