Phoenix Elite Event: Lumberjack Lovin’ at Backyard Axe Throwing League

On Thursday, June 6th Phoenix Elites were invited to Backyard Axe Throwing League in Scottsdale for a thrilling night of axe throwing, tasty eats, and competition. BATL is the first organization in the world to have urban venues where guests can experience axe throwing in the form of leagues, walk-in play, and group parties.

First, guests were welcomed with bites by R.T. O’Sullivans which included delicious ham and cheese wraps, tater tots, a mixed veggie salad, and chips and salsa. Next, they participated in a warm-up led by expert coaches who taught them techniques needed to stick their axes to the wooden targets and ideally, hit the bullseye. After preparing everyone for the evening ahead, Yelpers formed into groups for the round-robin tournament. Eventually, there was one winner who walked away with a champion trophy and other goodies to celebrate his win! A big congrats to Gareth B, our Elite Champion!

Thank you to Backyard Axe Throwing League (BATL) for hosting this evening full of fun and to the fantastic team and R.T. O’Sullivans for the tasty bites.
