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.
Candor, NY is having a Daffodil Festival Saturday, April 29, rain or shine! Come to Candor and enjoy.
Thunderbird Atlatl will hold atlatl contests, including ISACs, at 90 Main Street, Candor, New York (behind our shop). We should be starting around 1 p.m., depending on weather. Call 607-659-3854 or 607-222-9873 to check!
Looking forward to 2023, the Thunderbird Atlatl staff is setting up our calendar and planning trips for the year! We already were able to travel to Ohio earlier this month for a project with Kent State University. We had a great time with Kent State students and staff with a research project involving stone and copper projectile hafted on atlatl darts. We appreciated the help of students using atlatls to cast many darts for research on what turned out to be a rather rainy day.
We will post links to the research results as papers and results are published.
If you missed the shipping deadlines but still want to get an atlatl set for someone, Thunderbird Atlatl has gift certificates available
We can send the gift certificates out to your recipient by email immediately to arrive asap. We can also follow up with a paper gift certificate mailed to your recipient. We are happy to mail out your gift certificate if you prefer that type of delivery.
We are looking forward to the new year at the Thunderbird shop and wish all of our customers a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year.
It is getting pretty hectic at the Thunderbird Atlatl shop but we have a great staff of elves working here! We are fortunate that we have people coming in to help us during this busy season. Now is the time to purchase atlatl gifts while our inventory is good. Use the coupon code SAVE10 and save $10 on orders over $100 through Friday, December 9.
We are working up some other special offers as the season continues. We are shipping most of the orders through UPS ground or the post office via priority mail. Unfortunately, shipping has dramatically increased over the last year as shippers face increasing fuel costs and payroll costs. Every box we ship over three feet long gets an oversize fee of a minimum of $15 before shipping costs are added. It is actually more economical to order more items than fewer as the oversize fee is a fixed cost and has nothing to do with weight.
We are missing our beloved canine helper, Tina, again this holiday season (our second without her).

We are busy packing so please order early so we can get your orders out quickly!
