Equipment & Rules:

     Match director has equipment available for loan to try out this event. Participants are welcome to bring their own equipment max 17” handle, 2 ½ lbs, 4” bit.

     Axes may be thrown either one handed or two handed.

     All axes should be sheathed or bagged when not in use.

     When multiple participants are throwing at the same time, they must wait till all parties throw and scoring is complete before retrieving their axes.

     Walk carefully when retrieving axes, as a fall could result in serious injury. Axes are finely sharpened for good sticking ability.

     No trick shot throwing allowed. Axes are known to do wild things if they hit the target wrong, including coming back at you.

     Common sense is expected at all times.
