World Atlatl Day

June 4, 2016

The local primitive skills group S.A.L.T. will put on an atlatl demonstration, distance and accuracy contest from 9 a.m. to noon, and the Museum is celebrating by offering free admission all day. Complimentary water for participants will also be available thanks to a donation by Costco. The atlatl is a weapon predating the bow and arrow. Used worldwide for thousands of years, it proved an effective weapon. A stick with a hook on the end to hold the dart/spear, it increased the distance, speed, and force of the dart/spear. Visitors can try throwing darts using the atlatl and even join in the accuracy competition. Everyone is welcome, no experience needed!
