2016 Bitterroot Valley Knap-in Report
The 2016 Bitterroot Valley Knap-in was the fifth in a row hosted by Richard and Joan Urata. All have been great and this one was no exception! In fact if you take attendance and just plain fun into account, this one was the best! It was a good thing that the Charles Waters Memorial Campground is only a few minutes from the Group campground as there was considerable overflow.
There were lots of activities - now the norm at PSK events - archery, atlatls, music, great potluck meals (dinners, lunches and breakfast). There was a very competitive 2" Goat, won by Rick Pettersen (not Stu Murdock as reported in SPALLS) .
The proof is in the photos:
Packed in. Good thing we're all such good friends!

Potluck Meals - more and more PSK Knap-ins feature several potluck meals. Collaborating at mealtime means less time preparing food, greater variety and more social time!
