INTERNATIONAL AXE THROWING DAY
Sharpen your blades! International Axe Throwing Day on June 13th encourages competitive and amateur ax throwers to pick up a handle and toss a few.
Once the pastime of loggers and lumberjacks, axe throwing has grown in popularity in more recent years. Across North America and spreading around the world, clubs and organizations provide places for enthusiasts to practice their sport. Designed to be family-friendly, throwers of all ages participate.
On International Axe Throwing day, clubs open up their facilities to friends and family members. This social event not only offers a chance to check out the tools of the sport, but it provides opportunities to learn about the culture of axe throwing, terminology, competition, and more. Each year, interest grows, and so does the equipment and the competition.
