Calling Tyrion Lanister

We've got snacks... we've got axes... the only thing missing is booze...more grog

"In recent months, a safety specialist was brought in to inspect Backyard Axe-Throwing League locations as part of the application to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario."

"The AGCO didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment."
I just have to know where you get a "Battleaxe Safety Specialist."

Meanwhile, things are continually hopping in the GTA...
A man is in hospital after a shooting in the Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue West area this morning.
And...
A man in his thirties has been seriously injured after a shooting outside the Scarborough Town Centre Saturday night, Toronto paramedics say.
And...
Toronto police responded to a second shooting at around 5:30 a.m. near Scarborough Golf Club Rd. and Lawrence Ave. Two men in their 30s were rushed to the trauma centre in serious condition.
Finally...
SIU spokesperson Jason Gennaro said police officers fired one shot and also deployed a conducted energy weapon around 9 a.m. A 42-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.
I could go on forever.

Maybe a little battleaxe practice would come in handy some dark night.

for all the fun we could have with this... i'm sure axe throwing leagues have killed fewer people than ted kennedy's car.

Maybe we could push for concealed hatchet carry ;-)

if you think about it.. how is this any further out there than throwing darts? it should certainly offend fewer folk than, say... dwarf tossing.

and with axes, as opposed to darts or golf, you'd be getting a workout.

i say, "party on, conan."

But the liquor licence astounds me - never had a brewski vendor withing 15 blocks of any range I belonged to.

I wonder what the star headline would be if one of the upscale indor clubs built a members cafe and wanted to sell beer - It would get the Hunter Thompson fear and loathing treatment - "rednecks lobby for hard likker and handgun week"

when i was shooting ipsc competitions in new york state in the eighties, you could buy drinks in the clubhouse before and after shooting. land of the free, baby.

i do take your point though.

i suspect no gun club in canada would be prepared to assume the liability here. one accident and the range would be kaput.
