Sister Axe Throwing

“Collective joy” is the mantra and ax-throwing is the game on Thursday nights at Bella Vita Farm in Brookeville. People of all ages find their way to the farm, home to Sister Axe Throwing, an enterprise that’s associated with the World Axe Throwing League. The sport involves aiming at a target and earning points depending on where the ax lands. Competitive throwers can join a league in which their scores are tracked and ranked against others over an eight-week session, but many come just to hang out and toss some sharp-edged objects. Unlike indoor ax-throwing venues in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Sister Axe offers the sport in a bucolic outdoor setting (during the winter, the action takes place in a heated greenhouse). It’s owned by sisters Angie McNally and Amy Falcone, both of whom are also throwing coaches. Patrons can bring their own food and beverages. Drop-in throwing costs $20 for two hours; joining the league is $128 for an eight-week season.

League and open ax-throwing from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Thursdays, Sister Axe at Bella Vita Farm, 4901 Brookeville Road, Brookeville, 614-554-4943, bellavitafarm.com/sister-axe-throwing
