The Thunderbird Atlatl staff had a great time in Florida. We were unable to make the Ochlockonee River State Park, Sopchoppy, Fl. show because of a vehicle problem but were able to make it to the Silver River Knap In and Stone Age Arts Festival. Scott Mitchell and staff at Silver River are developing a great program for flintknappers and atlatlists.
The atlatl range was busy for three days. Hundreds of youth and older folks had a chance to try the atlatl. We look forward to next year’s shows!
After leaving Silver River, we traveled north to the Gainesville area where Bob Berg presented a workshop on atlatls for a group of youth and adults at Grace Methodist Church and the Florida Outdoors Ministry. Then it was on to meet Wayne and Carita Wall of Shadd Deer Farms of Lake Butler, Florida.. The Walls run a great operation and have lots of opportunities for anyone interested in atlatl hunting.
