Joe Higgins and the Knapadonia Gang will again host the annual Fort Knapadonia Knap-In in August. He promises to have a full schedule of events – archery, 2-inch Goat, 10-speed, bowmaking, atlatls, darts, arrows, making arrowheads and blades. etc., and don’t forget – It is an ODD YEAR – THE FISH SHOULD BE RUNNING!

There will be water available, electricity, Port-a-Potties, and lots of room for camping and RVing. Families are welcomed and encouraged to attend! Close by Oak Harbor offers plenty of garage sales and stores for shopping.

In addition to the usual great knappers knapping, plentiful rock and great weather, Whidbey Island is also a great place for families interested in sightseeing and experiencing other tourist activities.

There will be Archery shoots, Atlatls shoots, Tomahawk throwing, arrow making, wire wrapping, and a basking making class! Joe plans to add a few more ‘classes’ to share the artistry of PSK members so come prepared to learn and enjoy!
