Re: Arb and Forestry Event pics and comments

Apparently there is an indoor version of axe throwing, commonly played in public houses with simultaneous consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Perhaps you guys should look into it?

I think that's me in the axe throwing pic.
Big respect Justin for your effort and determination to put on this show on.

What? Throw pointy things across a room at a target, whilst consuming large amounts of alcohol, HSE would ban such an event instantly surely!!!! No outdoors is where its at these days. Anyway, I cant see an indoor event ever gaining international popularity, can you

Cheers Justin, fair play to you.

I have had 3 pints of Amstel and 8 cans of Stella since I left the mudbath, so I still have a rosey glow.
Haha brilliant.

Mark it's obviously not me, I wasn't wearing shorts

Re: Arb and Forestry Event pics and comments

I thought the target was a little close for my liking. Kept going over the top.

Re: Arb and Forestry Event pics and comments

It was. I kept going over the top. The axe did dig in the ground about 10 yards the other side. Never mind. Good day.

Well done jonsie. Enjoyable day and quite informative for me, now I'm off to climb some random trees, the weather is good and I'm working all next week so won't get a chance.
