Axe-cellent night at Yosemite Axe Throwing!

OMG, I had such a great night at Yosemite Axe Throwing during the Summer League Tournament. I’m so thankful that we have such a fun event in our small mountain community! I’ve been hooked from the start and look forward to competing again in the fall league.

If you’re in the area and are looking for something different to do, please join us on Tuesday nights for our fun and family friendly league.

Trying out our new throwing axes

After using the shop’s axes for a few weeks now, we decided to try to increase our chances with a little consistency in what we are throwing.

I first purchased an axe directly from the WATL called “The Butcher”. This thing is a beast, and I quickly named it “Thanos” of course, or “Θωτος” in Greek. Ali’s been really into Greek mythology recently so it seemed fitting.

I also purchased a WATL “Completion” thrower for Ali, as it was described as the perfect axe for the beginner. After receiving the axe we found that it was way to heavy for most younger throwers so we decided to name this one “Brick” (“Τουβλο” in Greek) as it’s built big and strong.

While we were at the shop trying out the new axes, one of the instructors had Ali try one of his smaller lighter axes which she loved so much we convinced him to sell it to her. She named this one “Cheese” (“Τυρι” in Greek), but I’m still not sure where she came up with they name.

Well, even though the heavier “Composition” axe didn’t work for my baby girl, I’ve found that I really like it for a hitting kill shots, although consistency on those shots are still developing. 🙂

I have to say, it’s nice to be doing something new in this crazy time of having so much taken away from us. It’s fun spending some family time outside the confines of our home. Can’t wait to try these new axes out at the next league night.

Sunday axe throwing with the fam…

Took the fam and met some friends for axe throwing this weekend at Yosemite Axe Throwing in Oakhurst.

It was the girl’s first time throwing axes and they both did great. My youngest loved it so much, she decided to join the winter league with me.

I’m beginning to find my rhythm and I’m hoping that I do much better this week. It’s funny to think that something so simple can be so much fun.

Yosemite Axe Throwing

I had a great time at my first league night at Yosemite Axe Throwing in Oakhurst. I hadn’t thrown an axe much at all before this day and I was a little intimidated at first, but it was fun to start my adventure with many helpful throwers, including our own former national champion axe thrower and lumber jack.

I have a lot of learning to do and I can see there is a lot of competition out there, but I’m looking forward to some fun times ahead.
