On February 9th we'll be going where no USS Nokomis member has gone before (at least, we thing that's true). We have a reservation at Bad Axe Minneapolis to have some fun. The facility is at 2505 Kennedy Street NE Minneapolis and our reserved time is at 5:30pm.
Our event includes two reserved targets, an axe throwing coach, and two hours of axe throwing fun. We can bring in our own food and beverage, so we'll have a potluck while we throw.
The cost is $39.25 per thrower. We must hit a minimum of throwers to get our spot, so be sure to sign up at the January meeting or on the website as soon as possible. If you have friends and family who'd like to come, they're welcome. You must sign them up for the throwing and potluck.
Here are some answers to questions you may have, from the FAQ:
- They require everyone who throws to wear closed-toed shoes.
- In the winter they recommend you make sure to wear layers because it gets a little cold, but other than that just wear something comfortable.
- They have never had anyone hurt or injured in any way. It is completely safe and they are very strict in making sure that everyone is throwing the axes in a safe manner. You are, however, required to sign a waiver. You can do it ahead of time online, or when you get there.
- If you can't throw, you can come to cheer on your crewmates at no cost.
Now doesn't that sound like fun?
