Pow Wow Club Certificate
Border designed by VE3MTM Since memberships to the Pow-Wow Club have taken on international interest, it seemed more appropriate to use the border area of the certificate to depict some of the indiginous culture on our North South, West and Eastern boundaries.
In the NW corner we started with an Innuit depiction of the sun and its importance in the cosmology of VE8 land followed by birds and fish, important to the survival in the Yukon and Territories. Next is the Innuit Magic Owl who rules over the top of the world and may be responsible for outbreaks in the Aurora. Two name places in Innuit letters near Frobisher and on Baffin Island surround a caribou and its spirit life within. Snowy Owl views eggs, Cormorant and seal hunter leads into the corner where a northern monster plays games with static and propagation.
On the right hand border, Mic Mac stone carvings, Cormorants and cod bring us to the present. It would not be fitting without a schooner for Roger which he can sail through a sea of rum. Finally Squid, nets, lobster traps and lobsters complete the design. The bottom border is mainly taken from rock carvings left by many of the First Nations across Canada's southern belt.
Western hams fall heir to a Haida concept of Who's Who out there. Anybody who is anybody out there is sure to find himself wedged into this totem somewhere - no names, no pack drill. All topped by a Kwakiutl pumpkin.
The original prerequisite for the certificate was that one had to call in at least once a year for 5 consecutive years but I would be OK with 5 times in any one year. To get your certificate, check in to the net, the controller will log your call, as will you, then when you get to 5 checkins and the net control stations can confirm it, (send me your log of contacts info in an email) , I will print it out and mail it to the recipient, this for a fee of $5 just to cover the postage, envelope and paper.
