									Terry Keefer Memorial Atlatl Tournament at Bald Eagle, PA
24-27 June 2010     by Douglas Bassett



        For the third year we were at the Camp Anderson Boy Scout Camp at Tyrone, PA
which offers many amenities on a 163 acre site. Rentable cabins & tents, meals, dining
hall, restrooms, showers, a native Brook Trout stream, a stocked fishing pond, trails,
woods and fields all meld into the fun of flintknapping, crafts, mountain men, civil war and
spear throwing...although we will have to wait until 2025 for the emergence of the 17-year
cicada like 2008 and the peak blooming of the Mountain-laurel was just about over this
year, but the Rhododendrons were approaching peak. Again this year we were down
below by the pond, as the big Civil War cannon is not in camp any more. The weather was
nice and warm with a free light show and rain after the Ooga Booga Saturday night under
the full moon. A Big Thanks to the Susquehanna Valley Flintknappers for providing the
straw, targets and trophies, Jack Rowe for the demo darts and demo atlatls and the
several folks who helped out on the demonstration range.

Deer/Bear Local (10 people, 19 entries)
       The local consisted of two standard archery animal targets ( a deer and a bear) that
were each shot from three different angled positions and scored one point for the body
outline, three points for a body hit and five points for the kill zone (and an X in the center).
Deer at 9, 17, 14 meters and Bear at 14, 20, 13 meters.

       To this was added the score of the running deer which was also part of this contest
when it was developed by Terry Keefer twelve years ago. One point for a body hit, three
points for the kill zone and five points for the heart of the kill zone. A total of five darts were
thrown from 12 meters and this could only be entered three times a day as opposed to an
unlimited number of times for the animal course. Like above, those competitors throwing
less than 50 in the ISAC threw from five meters closer.
