Depending on where you live in the United States and Europe, atlatl contests/meets can be either be plentiful or nonexistent!
We checked out the World Atlatl Association event calendar and we will list the contests coming up through the end of June.
If you feel atlatl contest/meet deprived, it is easy to set up your own atlatl event. The World Atlatl Association, International Atlatl Society and the many state atlatl associations offer information and support for setting up an event.
A lot of the most successful events have started with area atlatl clubs which have branched out from weekly meets to holding a set number of events during the year. The New York State Atlatl Association has a lot of information and events on its web page. If you need any assistance in setting up an event, give us a call (1-800-836-4520) or email us at Thunderbirdatlatl@gmail.com and we will be happy to help you out or at least find someone who can.
