Paul Campbell introduces his rabbitstick throwing class. Participants learned the proper techniques for throwing a curved, non-returning hunting tool made from scrub oak. Someone mounted a stuffed bunny to a remote control car and allowed the novice rabbit hunters to throw at a moving target.

Larry Kinsella talks about his demonstration with the huge stone celt. A similar artifact was found in an archeological site. During the demonstration, small hand celts were used to chop some of the wood from the log. The huge celt was utilized for breaking the remaining section of the log in half. Unfortunately, the final stroke with the big stone celt fell at a wrong angle and broke the wooden handle at the section of the hafted celt.
