Starting the day with fun and games, Axeology surprised a congregation of dads at Victory of Life Church with a treat of trying something new. Being a father himself, Axeology Founder Travis Ridley wants to toss the thrill of axe throwing he gets with his kids over to other families as well.
“The fact that axe throwing is a new sport, people are getting into it, just brings that that new excitement for everyone, from the fathers to the kids,” Travis Ridley “It’s not something that fathers have done for 20 years. It’s something that’s gonna be a new experience for probably everybody in the family when they come down.”
It doesn’t cost a thing to say, “Thanks, Dad.” Axeology expresses appreciation by letting dads throw axes for free all Father’s Day.
“When it comes to axe throwing on Father’s day, dads don’t just get to take turns at trying out their new possible favorite hobby,” Cora Dickey reports, “Sons and daughters score a bullseye in quality time while taking a few swings celebrating their dad.”
Father’s Day is one of the busiest times of the year for the local business. Giving families a slice into axe throwing is worth it when the memories made stick to the special occasion.
“The playing field is pretty even,” Kory Jones shares, “It’s not your traditional fishing trip or golfing trip with Dad. It’s have a little bit of fun’ it’s indoors, it’s out of the heat, and there’s always a pretty healthy amount of friendly competition between the three of us. It’s cool, it’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.”
Like golfing, fishing or any other activity, axe throwing can build a bond between a father and his kids.
