Potluck Meals

Potluck meals are popular at PSK events and are becoming almost a standard.  After all it's much easier to make one dish than a whole meal - and it allows much more time for 'socializing'!

Saturday's Potluck dinner - fried chicken, pulled pork, chili rellanos, chili, fruit salad, potato salad, lettuce salad, cakes, pies, cookies, rolls, fruit, etc., etc., etc.  Delicious and more than plenty for all!

Sunday Brunch

The traditional Thomas Hollow Sunday Brunch feature Loretta's Egg Fricata - a to-die-for dish of eggs, peppers, tomatos, etc.  Also available were pancakes, sausage, sticky buns, lots of coffee, orange and apple juice,

The Auction

One of the ways the PSK helps our knap-in hosts cover the cost of their event is to auction items of interest to flintknappers. These items are all donated by thos in attendance and range from knappable rocks/slabs, knapping tools, Paleo Art as well as items donated by non-knapping attendees - spouses, guests and visitors.  It is always fun and there are always great deals!



The Archers

At almost every PSK event there are other activities than just flintknapping - archery, atlatls, 'Hawk throwing, etc.  Here's the archers at Thomas Hollow!
