Lumberjacks and lumberjills don't need to be clad in plaid to enjoy axe-flinging fun at Chuck Steel's Axe House. Owner and axe master Patrick Marsden, who boasts a background in log-house building and woodworking, opened this recreation venue in 2019. Coaches advise beginners on the basics before they hit one of the four lanes. Between throws, groups gather in a seating area that's available for party rental. Members of the throwing league are welcome to use one of the house axes or bring their own. The same goes for youth leagues, which invite kids as young as 10 to test their skills at this popular sport.
