Come out and join Thunderbird Atlatl at the 32nd annual Stone Tool Craftsman show at Letchworth State Park near Mt. Morris, NY August 26 to August 28.
The event will feature Dr. Michael Stafford. His ability to recreate various types of Scandinavian stone daggers is most impressive. He is a master flintknapper of the highest order. Mike will be giving a presentation on Saturday evening at 7 PM that you won’t want to miss!
There will be many vendors and lots of atlatl events! We look forward to seeing you there.

Labor Day weekend, Thunderbird Atlatl will be at Flint Ridge State Park in Brownsville, Ohio.
In this time of social distancing, small groups and less travel, atlatls do offer a wonderful opportunity to get outdoors without a lot of people.
While many of the atlatl meets have been cancelled this year at state parks or public places, a few have and continue to be held in backyards or private locations. Check out the World Atlatl Association Event Page to see the status of events. The Ohio Atlatl Association is still keeping its dates but has switched to private locations as public places grapple with summer of 2020 events.
Events are being held with awareness of small groups, social distancing and masks. If you are unable to get to a group, spend some time by yourself or with a family member practicing your skills. The WAA will try to keep everyone updated about events. Stay safe as our country wrestles with this pandemic.
There will be atlatl contests, flintknapping, demonstrations, lectures and more. International Standard Accuracy Contests (ISACS) are scheduled for Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m.
Mark Bracken of Pennsylvania practices for an atlatl contest at the 2015 Ochlockonee State Park Primitive Arts Festival. (Weather should be a little warmer this year!)
