This year the North Fork Chapter is returning to the Elk Expo (August 21-22) which is held at the Elk Country Visitor Center in Benezette, PA.
The Elk Fest organizers have been receiving multiple requests requesting our return to the event with the George Miller Atlatl throw and North Fork Chapter 29 archaeology exhibit.
The organizers are supplying the hay bales and we will be stationed at our previous event area. This is not a sanctioned atlatl event and we will be only utilizing our infamous mastodon target.
Help is needed both Saturday and Sunday to staff the tent and help with the atlatl throw. NO experience necessary.
Setup will be on Friday afternoon with the target and tents.
Event Hours: Saturday 8am – 7pm and Sunday 8am – 4pm (We must remain set up
during event hours for both days, Note that the grounds open at 8am and guests will start arriving at that time.) If you want to park on the hilltop near the event you MUST be there before 7:30 AM. Anyone arriving after that time will need to park in the designated areas in Benezette and shuttle to the top of the hill on the buses ($5). If you plan to leave before closing, it will be best to use the shuttle in order to ensure that you will be able to get your vehicle out.
Tear Down Time: Begins at 4pm on Sunday
Anyone wishing to stay overnight at the site is permitted to utilize a tent but no campfires etc are permitted on site. There are restroom facilities scattered over the event area.
