We had a very enjoyable weekend at Paynes Creek. Small event, but the local people who attended have a lot of family history that goes back several generations, so they have a lot to share. If anyone records oral history, this is a goldmine of research.
The next event will be in October 2009, because that will be the 160th anniversary of Fort Chokonikla.
So here is the best moment from the whole weekend. One of our Seminole ladies shows how to throw a tomahawk!
She hit two dots on the paper in the final throw, which is impressive!
There were some annoying teens making noise in the background and hitting each other, and the funny part was when one of them made the "ouch" when Mrs. Kemp hit the target.
