2014 Cabelas Lacey Store Knap-in Report (work in progress)
For the fourth year in a row the PSK has held a flintknapping event feature demonstrations and free instruction at the Cabelas store in Lacey, Washington. And for the fourth time Cabelas has rolled out the red carpet! In spite of the fact that Event Coordinator, Macy Bruhy, was out on maternity leave, she'd left the event in the more-than-capable hands of manager James 'JD' Dunnagan and his staff.
In the opinion of the PSK members who attended this event, the best aspect was seeing all the youngsters who came to the store with their parents! There was a constant stream of youngsters throughout the day - both days in fact. We gave away free arrowheads to all who appeared interested - more than 200 youngsters (and a few 'oldsters') received free points!
It was also a treat to provide free instruction to several dozen folks who tried their had at the ancient art. We had boys and girls, men and women from 7 to 70! More than a few went away hooked on a new hobby.
We also added a few new members, including at least one, Nicholas 'Nick' Tomihama, from Vancouver, WA, who was already a proficient flintknapper!
Between demonstrating, instructing and answering questions from interested shoppers, it was a very busy weekend for all the PSK members who attended
