2016 Cabelas Lacey Store March Knap-in Report
For the Fifth Year in a Row, the Puget Sound Knappers were hosted by Cabelas Lacey Store for an in -house Knap-in. And for 5th time it was a blast - and a huge success! An estimated 1,000 Cabelas customers stopped by the PSK knapping area located just inside the front doors. Over 300 points were given out to youngsters who expressed an interest in stone arrowheads, and dozens of people, young and old, boys and girls, men and women got to try their had at flintknapping! It was two days of non-stop demos, free instruction and providing information on the ancient art of flintknapping. Cabelas' Nancy Hawley-Keech, their "Event Coordinator", did an outstanding job of preparing the store for this event!
PSK members attending - Mick and Holly Hill (host), Jim Smith, Jim Keffer, Rich Russell, Barry Bonnell, Woody and Kathy Woodside, Donn Paris and Scott Cannaday
