Charlotte will soon be home to the Carolina’s very first axe-throwing facility.
Scott and Ashleigh Gadd recently signed a lease on the old Kellogg’s facility in Charlotte’s Belmont neighborhood to launch LumberJaxe CLT;
They’re currently renovating the interior into an axe-thrower’s paradise, with a grand opening tentatively scheduled for the beginning of October.
LumberJaxe plans on charging throwers $20 per hour to use their throwing lanes. All of their axes, targets, and rules will be held to strict National Axe Throwing Federation regulations, including; 1.25 and 1.75 pound axe heads with a maximum blade face of 4″ and a minimum handle length of 13″.
Until they secure their liquor licence, you can BYOB and drink between throws.
LumberJaxe hosted their first public event in the parking lot of NoDa’s Abari Game bar back in July..with some curious looks from the CMPD:
They’ll be hosting several other ‘pop-up axe throwing events’ this month before they open their permanent location;
The end is nigh for our pop-up events as they are coming to a close. But fear not, here is where you can find us through September before we start preparing for our grand opening. Details to follow for each event as they approach. #summerisending #popupaxe #axethrowing #lumberjaxe #Charlotte #comingsoon #theendisnigh #deathofapopup
