Atl-Atl Throwing

The atl-atl is an ancient spear enhancement tool. According to the guys instructing on technique, it was fairly short-lived. While it does increase the velocity of the spear, or dart as they call it, it does nothing to help with the accuracy of the throw.  That means that one has to be close up to get the full benefit.

 Karen was first to hit the target.

 Eventually, we all hit the target.  Probably wouldn't be our first choice of ancient weapons.
