Pre-registration is not required and no experience is needed to join the atlatl competition. ​ What is an atlatl? 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. Each year, the goal of World Atlatl Day is to increase awareness and appreciation of this prehistoric technology and have as many people throw an atlatl on a single day as possible.
