Visitors From Germany

Welcome to Thunderbird Atlatl’s website. This week we had visitors from Germany- the Weigel Family, who are all good atlatlists.

Next week we plan to be at Land Between the Lakes in western Kentucky for the second annual atlatl fishing derby. All are welcome to join us. Please email me for further information if you plan to go. Bob Berg

The following are some excerpts from the Community Zero website.

We are glad to have the Family Weigel as guests here at out home in Candor. As many of you already know, Paul is an exchange student who is staying with us for the school year. His parents Uli, Jutta and sister Lene have come to visit. What is special is that we came in contact through this web site. We are having a good time getting to know Paul’s family. We went to the atlatl contest on Tuesday evening at Brandon Anderson’s house and enjoyed the comaradie of the Tioga Atlatl Association. The Waa is truly a world organization. Bob Berg

Apres la instruction de Bob en aleman je peux constate, que nos sommes tres allegres en la maison de la famille Berg, aussi heureux de revoir notre fils Paul apres 9 mois, domage que n’y a pas plus que 3 jours de rester, mais en effet un exellent possibilite de constater les meilleurs relations europeens-americains en sujet d’ AtlAtl.- y surtout en relation “interpersonel”! Salut y hello a tout le monde! Bob and Uli

Spring 2003! Another Atlatl Season Under Way!

Spring Fever is hitting the atlatl world! Atlatl contests started in January but they become more and more plentiful as we move into the warmer weather. Check out the World Atlatl Association website for a complete listing of upcoming contests.

Thunderbird Atlatl had some earlier adventures in Feburary and the beginning of March in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. We will be attending shows in Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan over the next few months.

New News Script

A new news script has been added to this website which allows for the owners of Thunderbird Atlatl to update their website without the help of a third party. This will hopefully result in a more up-to-date and enjoyable site for all visitors!

The 2001 events calendar has been updated with all of the atlatl-related events that we currently know about. If you know of an atlatl-related event that is not located on the shows page, please tell us! Robert Berg has also written an article about some of his atlatl boar hunting experiences. Check it out with the link to the right!
