ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE: Lake Michigan Armory is celebrating its official ribbon cutting for new axe throwing. This is a family-friendly activity anyone can enjoy year-round.

The Chamber of Commerce members took turns throwing axes today after a safety briefing. Everyone who throws axes will go through a quick safety training to ensure axe throwers and customers are safe.

Lake Michigan Armory staff says they’re thrilled to offer this activity to the community.

“We’re excited to be able to provide a sport and recreational activity that all the entire family can enjoy. Doesn’t matter whether you’re ten years old or whether you’re 65 or older, it’s something everyone can do together,” said Michael King, co-manager of Lake Michigan Armory. Walk-ins for axe throwing are available whenever the store is open. Reservations are available as follows:

· Thursday 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.

· Friday 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.

· Saturday 9 a.m. – 3 pm.

· Sunday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Axe throwing is 50 cents per throw (prepaid) or $10 for half an hour and $20 for a full hour. Call Lake Michigan Armory at (906) 786-7468 to make your reservation.

Escanaba now has an axe throwing venue.

It’s located in the Lake Michigan Armory along Lincoln Road. The business wanted to give the community a family-friendly activity to offer year-round.

Everyone will go through a safety briefing to ensure your safety and the safety of those in the store. There are metal bars and mats on the floor to keep axes from flying or bouncing.

It’s something the whole family can do.

“We have safety lines that are actually on the ground that show where you can and cannot pass. Along with the instruction from the LMA staff that will definitely help continuously watch and keep everyone safe,” said Michael King, assistant manager of Lake Michigan Armory.

Axe throwing is available any time the store is open. But you can reserve your spot during special times: Thursday and Friday four p.m. to eight p.m. and Saturday from nine a.m. until three p.m. Times are subject to change if there is enough interest.
