The Atlatl throw was a huge hit last year at the Expo and we are planning on being at our best again this year trying to spear the almost life size mastodon target.
The atlatl throw was featured in the Tracks and Racks advertising for this years show, as well as a photo of George Miller working his elk call.
The chapter will be having our own set of tents this year and we will be selling some small items, having an artifact display and flint knapping area, as well as holding both the public and registered atlatl throws.
Plenty of help is needed both days with two shifts on Saturday 8 am - 1 pm and 1 - 8 pm. Sunday is 8 am-5 pm. Please come up and give us a hand. Let Ken Burkett know of your availability by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a lot of food, vendors, programs, and plenty of other things to do at this event so give us a hand so everyone can enjoy both days and spread the word about Pennsylvania Archaeology and the North Fork
Save the date for August 15 and 16, 2020
