Host - Jim Keffer
(work in progress)

Jim Keffer, along with the Sammamish shop knappers Jim Miller and Ken Graham hosted Scouts from Troop 336
for a day of Flintknapping! Each Scout and their adult leaders receive several hours of hand-on instruction
in the basiss of percussion knapping as well as a demonstration of presure flaking. Each Scout was able to complete a basic projectile point
and each Scout also recieve a arrowhead made by a PSK member! A great time for all this who attended!
