Thunderbird Atlatl is getting busy for the upcoming holiday season. We finished the last of our travels and we are looking forward to home and workshop time in Candor, NY.
Our shop is open for a visit if you happen to be in the area, 20 miles south of Ithaca, New York or just 15 minutes off of Route 17/I-86 between Binghamton and Elmira, New York. Give our 800 number a call if you are planning on stopping in 1-800-836-4520.
We are setting up next year’s schedules and shows. If you are interested in having Thunderbird Atlatl at a workshop in 2008, give us a call and we will see if we can make arrangements.
There are still a few atlatl events scheduled for the remainder of the year, check out the World Atlatl Association and International Atlatl Society web pages for updated schedule.
