Our friend, fellow atlatlist and atlatl maker Brandon Anderson passed away Wednesday evening, July 30, at his home in Waverly, NY. Brandon has been involved with the atlatl world for many years. Over the years, he has helped the Thunderbird Atlatl shop greatly with his best friend John Jefferson.
Many of us know Brandon as “Groovy”, a word he used often and a name he called himself. “Groovy” Anderson loved to make atlatls and enjoyed atlatl competitions with his many friends on the atlatl circuit. He introduced the atlatl to many people and on his wedding day, atlatls were part of the ceremony.
The atlatl world and Brandon’s many friends will miss him. We are all more fortunate for having him in our lives these many years.
