NATIONAL DAY ..

Back on April the 5th, 2023, when I first introduced the topic of Axe Throwing, it was a Sport unheard of by Patti and yours truly along with many of you!

How Could I Possibly Have Known?

Axe Throwing Has Its Very Own Day?

Like I have often said, sometimes these Special Days Jump Right Into My Lap here on dotnet!

International Ax-Throwing Day, is celebrated yearly on June 13. It encourages ax throwers, both professional and amateur, from all around the world, to gather to celebrate and promote the urban sport. The day aims to inspire sporty people to participate in a unique and enjoyable pastime, reduce tension, and simply have a good time with their friends and family members. Ax-throwing clubs all across the world will be opening their doors to anyone interested in trying out the sport for free.

Lake Havasu City, Arizona..

After years of being used to chop down trees and fight in combat, the common ax has been transformed into the centerpiece of a fun-filled pastime that does not entail destroying forests or getting into scrapes with other participants. Ax-throwing is indeed a sport in which the objective is to strike a target with nothing but an ax, as the name implies. Like with darts, the participant aims for the bullseye on a huge target.

Ax-throwing is thought to have begun with loggers, often known as lumberjacks nowadays, during the 19th century. The sport has recently become a global craze. It is particularly popular in the United States and Canada, where it started as a competition in lumberjack contests. However, in recent years, it has become quite popular throughout Europe, making it easier for those who want to find a place to throw their axes without having to travel far.

When ax-throwing becomes competitive, various restrictions must be followed, such as the target always being a specific width and comprising five rings. In a similar vein to archery, the closer you get to the center, the more points you will earn. The importance of safety in ax throwing competitions cannot be overstated. There are usually stringent safety precautions in place to protect both the competitors and any spectators who may be present. Consequently, you can be confident that you will have a great and safe experience when you participate.

Yes Indeed! Axe Throwing is a family event.

    I love axe throwing, but am better with knives.
    Grew up doing both in the woods.
    Fun post! Gotta dig out my knives and target this weekend!
    Stay well!

      Thank.. YOU.. Kit.. so very (as in VERY) much for your comment. Kit, this is the first comment here on dotnet since June the 3rd. Kit we don’t write Posts for comments BUT after ten days without even one, I begin to wonder “why bother” with our website? Does anyone care? I even asked our webmaster Andrej IF there was something wrong with our Comments Page.

      Kit, until Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and the Axe Throwing venue I had no idea what Axe Throwing as a pass time or competitive “sport” was. Then Voila! I found out last year. I did not grow up in the woods. IF you would not mind, will you please send a photo of your knives and target to us Kit. Again thanks for your comment and interest Kit. Cap and Patti

    I remember your adventure with axe throwing. Shiver me timbers, I don’t think I would be brave enough to do it. My sponsor’s sponsor did it not too long after her husband died; she said she found it therapeutic. I will stick with playing with my cats. They provide endless entertainment, even when they are napping.

      Wow. Thanks Kathleen for joining Kit with a comment to this Post. It had been ten days with no comments. We really appreciate your taking the time to check-in with us here on dotnet.

      There is little to no danger in the axe throwing. You throw the axe (it travels end-over-end) at a target 8 to 10 feet away. Interesting that it helped your grand sponsor in terms of being therapeutic Kathleen. However you can enjoy your cats in the comfort of your home and that is great. Again thanks for your comment. Cap and Patti
