GOT AN AXE TO GRIND?
By Angela Garrity, Guest Blogger
Today is International Axe Throwing Day, and it was created to encourage sporty types to give a go to a historical past time, relieve stress and just have fun with friends and family. Some of you have been waiting for a reason to give this a try – we see you seething over that recent break-up or that person who cut you off in traffic. This is a healthy way to get rid of that anger and in participating locations, you can, for free.
International Axe Throwing Day is all about people around the world who share a passion for axe throwing getting together and raising awareness about the urban sport. Axe throwing is a sport that is growing in popularity. It’s offbeat and fun, and it is an activity that practically everyone can enjoy — including Alexander Ludwig, from Vikings, who took a turn at San Diego Comic Con in 2019.
Axe throwing is a sport wherein the goal is to hit a target using nothing but an axe. It’s most popular in the USA and Canada, where it started out as an event in lumberjack competitions. However, in recent years it has gained popularity in Europe and you won’t need to go too far to find somewhere to throw some axes.
Perhaps just one session will awaken the inner competitive axer in you or give you a brand-new hobby to do on weekends or whenever. Information on the World Axe Throwing League is available here.
The Seer knows all and even thought Vikings is scheduled to end this year, we anticipate more views in Valhalla.
