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.
Contact information can be found on the World Atlatl Association website.
Joining the World Atlatl Association is a great way to keep track about events in your area and to meet fellow atlatlists.
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.
