All Events Welcome!
The World Atlatl Association welcomes everyone who is interested in the atlatl, and so we try to get the word out about just-for-fun throws, teaching events, and official competitions (ISACs). You do not need to be a WAA member to list an event. You may send in your event for publication on this website and in the quarterly newsletter by choosing one of these methods:
- Create an event on this website (this is the recommended option)
- Send your event information via the Contact Page
- WAA Members can log in and go to the WAA Directory and contact the Executive Secretary via email, phone, or US Mail.
Please note that our newsletter comes out quarterly, so if you want to have your event shared that way, planning ahead is important. If you missed the deadlines for hosting an official ISAC, you can ask for an exemption.
ISACs – PLAN AHEAD!
Please read the ISAC Rules and Regulations and take a look at the Scoresheet.DOWNLOAD ISAC Rules and Regulations with Appendices Download ISAC Scoresheet
To be official, ISAC Events must be reviewed by the WAA Executive Secretary and they must be published on this website at least 30 days in advance, and we strongly recommend placing them in The Atlatl newsletter, which means they must be submitted by the newsletter deadline. Please also allow some time for people to review and post the event. Here are the official guidelines:
Section 6.3 of the ISAC rules and regulations
6.3 Only scores from a scheduled open contest will be accepted for record. A scheduled open contest is defined as a contest that has had the date and location published prior to the contest taking place.
6.3a The information on contests to be published is to be sent only to the Executive Secretary who will keep the official contest list. Contest information should be submitted at least one month prior to the contest taking place.
6.3b Organizers missing a publishing deadline can seek approval for a contest by contacting the WAA Executive Secretary. The request must be received in writing at least two weeks before the date of the projected contest. A committee consisting of the Executive Secretary, the Official WAA Scorekeeper, and a third member appointed by the President will rule on whether or not the contest will be approved. A simple majority is required for approval. The request for approval must include how the contest will be publicized, and a statement as to why the organizers need this approval instead of scheduling their contest so that it can be announced at least one month in advance on the official contest list. Listing the contest in THE ATLATL is the preferred method.
