News on the Atlatl Circuit/World Atlatl Association Meeting

by | Sep 6, 2006 | News

There were a few personal bests during atlatl contests in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio over the last couple of weeks. Congratulations Devon, Bob and Doug!
The hospitality at Flint Ridge State Park was, as always, terrific and it was a good event for both atlatlists and flintknappers.
Ohio Atlatl Association members did a terrific job of letting a large number of people try out the atlatl. Thanks to Ray, Steve, Steve, Debbie, Connie and others who put everything together.
In honor and memory of our good friend and great atlatlist, Terry Keefer, atlatlists shed their footwear and competed barefooted!
Thank you to all who continue to work hard on this event and other atlatl events. We know a lot of effort and time went into the competitions and demonstrations at Letchworth State Park two weekends ago and the Pennsylvanai Atlatl Competition Labor Day Weekend. Thanks to Gary Fogelman and members of the NY and Pa Atlatl Associations for helping make sure these events were successful.
The World Atlatl Association meeting takes place this weekend at Cahokia in Illinois. Next year, the meeting will be at Letchworth State Park in New York.
