2017 Fort Whoop-up Knap-in Report
We had 20 Knappers attend with 4 Canadian families and 2 Americans. This was the most successful knap in with The Black Powder Club. Weather was warm and winds acceptable.
The Black Powder Club provided a corn roast and roast beef meal so we donated $200 from the auction proceeds.
One family had tents and on Sat. evening the wind came up ( not excessive by Lethbridge standards) battering the tents and they moved into Leger's teepee which was not bothered at all by the wind. The kids were excited and mother was pleased, we may have another teepee next year.
Rick Rowell built a Clovis point and everyone took a flake off it. He managed to take a 3" flute flake free hand.
Two 2 inch Goat competitions were held and George Bryce won both.
Donn Paris and Jim Peake provided songs for us as we sat around a propane fire (fire ban).
Barry Rogers was the auctioneer and enjoyed it.
