World Atlatl Day is June 2. It is a great time to meet new atlatl friends and join in atlatl fun. There are events planned in New York, Connecticut, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Ohio, Missouri and Dublin, Ireland.
The first Saturday in June is designated as World Atlatl Day by the World Atlatl Association. World Atlatl Day (WAD) was initiated by Linda Brundage and the New York Atlatl Association in 2011. Due to its popularity, the WAA membership attending the 2012 Annual Meeting voted to officially recognize the first Saturday in June of each year as World Atlatl Day.
