Memorial Day Weekend Atlatl Events

Marshall Primitive Archery Rendezvous

Use your atlatl or bow at the Marshall, Michigan Primitive Archery Rendezvous this weekend. This is a great event with a great 3D target round. Unfortunately, Thunderbird Atlatl has had to cancel our plans to be at this event due to a family situation but atlatlists should still plan on attending the event and enjoying the various activities.

Primitive Pursuits Camp in Ithaca, NY

Thunderbird Atlatl’s Bob Berg spent a day with the Primitive Pursuits camp in Ithaca, NY this past week. The pictures tell the story. It was a great day of learning, sharing and having a great time with atlatls and other primitive pasttimes.

Primitive Pursuits campers enjoyed a day of using atlatls, making atlatls and darts and learning how to make stone tools with hafting resin.
