It was a busy summer for Thunderbird Atlatl as we ventured out to a few of our favorite venues and got to spend time with atlatl friends.
We continue working on shop renovations. Plans are to finish our shipping area in the next month and get ready for the holiday rush.
If you are thinking of ordering a present for the holidays, we strongly urge you to order in November as we do not know how reliable the shipping services will be in December. In 2020, the shipping services were sometimes taking up to three weeks to deliver items they promised to deliver in three to four days. Shipping improved in 2021 and seems to be better in 2022. However, all the shipping services (faced with the same increasing prices we all face) have increased prices in 2022 as they try to cover their increased costs.
We are unable to accommodate any custom or special orders during this busy season. If you have questions, please call us at: 1-800-836-4520 or email at email@example.com
This weekend Thunderbird Atlatl will be home in Candor and celebrating the Fall season with the annual Candor Fall Festival. There are a variety of events to attend. Check out the Candor NY Chamber webpage for more information.
There will be atlatl contests and demonstrations behind the Thunderbird Atlatl shop at 90 Main Street, Candor, New York from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Stop in for a visit and try the atlatl. For those interested in participating in the International Standard Accuracy Contest or ISAC, there will be contests both Saturday and Sunday.
For further information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-836-4520.
We made it through the holiday season and even managed to get most of our machinery moved to our new shop! We are excited about the efficiencies and space in the new shop. Plans are now to finish moving a few more machines and then get the old shop ready to be our new packing and fletching area. This has been an ongoing project the last few years but some projects just take time!
The new shop is located only a few hundred feet from the old shop so that has made the moving process not as challenging but still an issues of brute force and clever (!) staging to make production more efficient. We will keep you updated as we go forward.
Construction Photo of the new shop! We will add more updated photos soon!
Meanwhile, we need to update our online catalog and work on a new paper catalog. There never seems to be enough time to get everything done! We appreciate our customers’ support but you do keep us busy! We were able to get out a few more times this past year and hope we can do that again in 2022. We will see how the world moves with the everchanging pandemic. We all take two steps forward and then another one back. The good news is that atlatls are a perfect activity for outside and social distancing so we have kept busy with our mail order business.
It’s leap year and soon it will be spring! Take the extra day and the approach of spring to build your own atlatl and dart set. Thunderbird Atlatl has a variety of kits to choose from. In a few hours, you will have an atlatl and dart set made with your own hands. Check out our instructional videos on You Tube.
