Axe throwing in Daniel Island SC

Quick Quote

The Most Exciting Live Entertainment Game in South Carolina

If you're looking for an adrenaline-filled, pulse-pounding way to have fun all day, grab an axe and get your throw on at Lumber Jill's! Axe throwing is the newest, most popular live entertainment game in the Lowcountry. It's kind of like darts...but with axes! Axe throwing is great for a few hours of amusement, stress relief, team building, and even corporate events in Daniel Island, SC. Whether you're looking for a great way to celebrate the weekend or want a new idea for your company event, Lumber Jill's has got you covered.

The Lumber Jill's revolution began after co-owners Jill and Heath spent a date night with friends throwing axes in Charleston. After having so much fun, the entrepreneurial couple quickly realized they could create their own take on axe throwing. Soon after, Lumber Jill's was born!

The name Lumber Jill's isn't just a play on our co-owner's name - it involves a really interesting piece of history too. Across the pond, the Women's Timber Corps "manned" the lumber yards in England while the men were serving in WWII. They affectionately became known as Lumberjills, Britain's answer to Rosie the Riveter. Without these brave ladies, Lumber Jill's wouldn't exist. We would be remiss if we didn't salute them for the example they set!

At the end of the day, we want to provide every one of our guests with an outstanding axe-throwing experience. So, grab your friends, co-workers, family, or favorite people and join us for an axe-throwing party you won't soon forget.

Why is Axe Throwing in Daniel Island, SC So Popular?

Axes haven't been this popular in America since "The Shining" hit theaters way back in 1980!

In cities all around the nation, axe-throwing facilities are popping up left and right as a fun, healthy way for people of all ages to congregate and enjoy a night of friendly competition and stress relief. In the last few years, the sport of axe throwing has exploded - so much so that the World Axe Throwing League was assembled in 2017 to coordinate international axe-throwing competitions. Since that time, many axe-throwing events have popped up on national TV stations like ESPN.

But why is axe throwing so popular? Here are just a few reasons why Lumber Jill's and axe throwing as a whole is a hit in South Carolina:

Stress Relief

Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in Daniel Island is for stress relief. We've even heard some customers say it's a cheaper form of therapy! In reality, axe tossing gives you a therapeutic release that is hard to replicate. A few hard throws with an axe and your body releases a flood of endorphins, which help increase your energy, improve your mood, and facilitate healthy blood flow. If you have pent-up anger, nothing feels better than chucking a heavy axe at a target. Hitting a bullseye is even better!

exercise
Exercise

Since axe throwing is such an exhilarating activity, many people don't realize that they are exercising their arms, legs, abs, pecs, and even back when they come to Lumber Jill's. Like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, axe throwing works several muscle groups at once. These exercises strengthen your core and help define your muscles. When coupled with a healthy diet, regular axe-throwing activities can even help you shed a few pounds.

Common Questions. Helpful Answers.

We understand that axe throwing isn't your typical date night or even guy's night activity. We get it - you're hurling real axes at a target that is only a few feet away. On the surface, that can sound a little scary. But don't worry, many of our first-time guests have questions about how our process works too.

This is a great question and one that we receive quite often (crazy, right?). Axe throwing at Lumber Jill's is absolutely safe. In fact, safety is our #1 priority and has been since day one. Our knowledgeable axe-throwing coaches are trained to keep a keen eye on every axe thrower, whether they're solo or with a group. If, for ANY REASON our coaches feel like a person shouldn't throw an axe, they will not be permitted to do so. To help keep our facility safe, please refrain from bringing your own axe to Lumber Jill's. The same goes for any other kind of throwable object.
The easiest, fastest way to book your axe-throwing lane is to make your reservation online. Walk-ins are welcomed, but we cannot guarantee that we will have a spot open for you or your party. For inquiries about corporate events, facility rentals, or large celebrations, please contact us directly at (843)-879-3030.
We suggest you wear something that you find comfy and easy to wear for a few hours. Don't wear anything that will restrict your movement. The biggest "no-no" we have in terms of dress code is open-toed shoes, which are not allowed. If you pop in for a last-minute axe-throwing session, and need a pair of shoes, don't fret. We offer shoe rentals for $3 per person.
Unfortunately, we are not permitted to allow outside axes at Lumber Jill's. The same goes for any other object like throwing stars or throwing knives. We've got all you need to have the time of your life, including throwing axes.

DURHAM, N.C. – The Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) announced its All-Region teams and award winners on Tuesday and Washington and Lee garnered several selections on the Region 4 team.

Leading the way was senior goalkeeper Nick Spagnoletti (Madison, N.J. / Madison), who was named the Region 4 Defensive Player of the Year, while he also earned a spot on the first team. Joining Spagnoletti on the first team was senior defensive midfielder Teddy Bentley (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. / Cold Spring Harbor), senior defenseman Michael Horgan (Charlotte, N.C. / Charlotte Catholic) and junior defenseman Harris Hubbard (Daniel Island, S.C. / Bishop England).

Senior midfielder Tommy MacCowatt (New Vernon, N.J. / Delbarton) rounded out the W&L selections with an honorable mention citation.

As a first-year starter in goal, Spagnoletti played 1006:21 of a possible 1141:46 between the pipes, recording 214 saves with 136 goals allowed. His .611 save percentage ranked 11th in Division III, while his 8.18 goals-against average ranked 17th overall. Spagnoletti posted double-digit save totals in 13 of his 19 games played, including three games with at least 20 saves. He logged 20 saves against then-No. 5 York (Pa.) and 21 saves in back-to-back games against then-No. 4 Christopher Newport and arch-rival Roanoke.

Bentley helped the Generals rank 12th nationally in scoring defense, holding 12 opponents to single-digit goal totals. Bentley finished second on the team with 59 ground balls and he added nine caused turnovers. He also produced a career-best 10 points on seven goals and three assists.

Horgan also played a large role in W&L ranking among the nation's top defenses. He tied with Hubbard with a team-best 19 caused turnovers, also collecting 24 ground balls. Horgan logged eight games with multiple ground balls, with five contests of multiple caused turnovers this season.

Hubbard garnered first team honors after being named to the second team in 2021. He was another major factor in the Generals ranking 12th in Division III in scoring defense (7.89 gpg) and 37th in ground balls. Individually, he tied for the team lead in caused turnovers (19) and he was third on the team in ground balls (48). He also tallied one assist.

MacCowatt, a First Team All-ODAC performer this season, ranked third on the team with 22 goals, while coming in fourth in both assists (9) and points (31). He also added 14 ground balls and two caused turnovers. His top performance came in an 11-8 win over Roanoke when he notched four goals and one assist.

Hubbard's IMLCA All-Region selection was the second of his career, while the other four players each claimed their first.

Washington and Lee completed the 2022 season with a 12-7 overall record. The Generals finished as the ODAC regular-season champion for the fifth straight year and received an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Generals were defeated in the NCAA second round by Cabrini College.

The top two seniors from each school’s graduating class delivered commencement speeches in which they reflected on the past, shared insights on success and expressed optimism for the future. Note: To view all the graduates, click here.

Anna Katherine Head, Bishop England High School

Valedictorian, Class of 2022

Anna Katherine Head always had a deep-rooted love for animals. Her family has fostered kittens through Berkeley County Animal Shelter and Charleston Animal Society for several years and her parents, Barbara and Anthony, always allowed pets in their home.

In the fall, Head will be studying animal and veterinary sciences at Clemson University Honors College with the hopes of becoming a veterinarian.

Head believes success can be viewed from many perspectives because one person’s success might not be another’s. “I always tell myself to go out and not regret what I’m doing… To do (everything) with purpose and with meaning.”

One thing Head’s most proud of is her class getting through high school during a pandemic. “It was a struggle, but we all did it and Bishop England handled it really well with all the hybrid (learning). The fact that we made it through shows that we’re a really resilient class.”

Head, who was involved in several activities including model United Nations, engineering club, pom squad, glee club and field hockey, advises younger students to study, do their homework and join clubs to participate and make friends.

Head said she is thankful for the support of her friends, family and all the teachers who made an impact on her life and helped shape her into the independent-thinking person she is today.

“We’ve been prepared, but we’re not owed anything … it’s up to us,” Head added. “We’re the newest action takers and we need to go out and be the good people in the world.”

Caitlin Keffer, Bishop England High School

Salutatorian, Class of 2022

Caitlin Keffer is most proud of how she has grown as a person over the past four years and how her extracurricular activities helped her develop new interests, become more confident and serve her community.

“A lot of hard work and studying have contributed to my success but also being optimistic that the hard work would pay off in so many different ways,” Keffer said.

Keffer will be attending the University of Notre Dame, majoring in neuroscience and is excited to begin a new chapter of her life this fall. “It’s an amazing school with a very welcoming atmosphere, football community and culture.”

The advice Keffer offers to underclassmen is to embrace every moment of high school. “Keep everything in perspective because the issues that seem so important when you’re a freshman are the things you will laugh at when you’re a senior. In the end it all works out.”

Keffer was involved in youth in government, varsity swim team, Lowcountry Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, National Honor Society and several school clubs. “I’m very self-motivated and I think it comes from always wanting to do my best. My parents always told me

that most importantly they want me to just do my best and be happy.”

Keffer, the daughter of James Reilly and Valerie, said success is being proud of yourself for reaching a goal without sacrificing your values.

“I believe you can do whatever you set your mind to,” Keffer added. “After the unexpected parts of the last four years, I know if we can push through the pandemic, then we can contribute to any kind of change we want.”

Jack Rose, Philip Simmons High School

Valedictorian, Class of 2022

Jack Rose believes that success is mostly a mindset. “Set goals you want to achieve … and fulfill them with happiness,” Rose said. “Just because there are setbacks or failures doesn’t mean you aren’t successful because success isn’t a straightforward, easy path, but the result of overcoming challenges.”

Rose credits his high school accomplishments to intrinsic motivation, challenging himself with a rigorous course load, always putting forth his best effort, and the ongoing support of his parents, Brad Rose and Kay Durst.

Rose will be attending Georgia Tech majoring in computer science. He wasn’t sure what he wanted to study until he joined the Philip Simmons robotics team and took the role of lead coder, which sparked his interest in computer science.

He also enjoys playing the saxophone, sailing and golf and was a member of Philip Simmons marching band, Berkeley County all county jazz band, the varsity golf team, National Honor Society and several school clubs.

In his graduation speech, Rose emphasized lessons learned through high school; perseverance, group effort, getting along with others and doing your personal best. He sums up his advice in a quote borrowed from his teacher, Mr. Carpenter; “Don’t be a trash human.”

Rose believes anyone can make an impact by being a good person. “Every person who is graduating this year will have some effect on the world whether big or small. Even small actions can grow like falling dominoes to help change the world.”

Julia Wood, Philip Simmons High School

Salutatorian, Class of 2022

Julia Wood said it was an honor being named salutatorian at Philip Simmons High School. “It gave me a great sense of accomplishment because our class is really competitive, so it was surprising and very gratifying.”

Wood will be attending the University of South Carolina Honors College majoring in exercise science. She hopes to pursue pediatric occupational therapy because she loves working with children. “I grew up a USC fan, so it felt right.”

Wood, the daughter of Bobby and Lindsay, said her strong work ethic and time management skills allowed her to be involved in sports and clubs while remaining dedicated to her studies.

She held many offices including captain of the varsity volleyball and softball teams, president of National Honor Society and the recycling club, along with serving on the junior and senior boards and the school improvement council.

“My awesome teachers at Philip Simmons were a source of inspiration and support,” Wood said.

“They pushed me through all my endeavors.”

Wood’s advice to underclassmen is to take advantage of every opportunity to be involved in their high school community because it’s the extracurricular activities that will create lasting memories.

“Success is working towards a goal with your unique passion and grit, putting forth your best effort and being rewarded with the results,” Wood said. “We can impact the world by simply sharing our experiences and spreading positivity for change; even the smallest act of kindness can have an impact on others.”

The Rotary Club of Daniel Island ushered in the peak season of spring with a slew of interesting guest speakers. The following is a synopsis of what the month of April entailed.

On April 6, Mike Seekings was the guest speaker. Seekings discussed the issue of flooding in downtown Charleston and the Lower Battery Seawall repair project, which has just entered Phase 3 and signed a contract for $22 million. He discussed the U.S. Army Corps Engineers' proposal and the pros and cons associated with the project.

Later in the month, on April 13, the club invited Kenya Dunn as guest speaker. Dunn worked for T-Mobile for 10 years in Augusta, where she is originally from, and she has two children. Her oldest son is at Coastal Carolina University and her daughter studies at Howard University. Dunn moved to South Carolina and worked for the T-Mobile call center. Her background is in leadership development and quality management. The call service center she led quickly rose to T-Mobile's top-ranked call center in the nation. Six months into her new position, Dunn had the responsibility of running the call center by herself as the former director took a promotion in Seattle. Under Dunn’s leadership, the call center on Daniel Island thrived. In 2011, she became the director of the call center. In 2015 she moved back to Georgia to work in the retail division, helping T-Mobile take a 1% market share from Verizon & AT&T. Shortly after, she was promoted to vice president of retail and managed roughly 10,000 people! Kenya is now the COO for Lifetagger.

On April 20, the club welcomed Nate McGaughey as guest speaker, controller of Nucor Steel Berkeley. McGaughey studied accounting and finance and graduated from Southern Indiana in Evansville, Indiana. McGaughey’s relationship with Nucor started as a child, as his father worked for Nucor in Crawfordsville, Indiana. McGaughey appreciates what Nucor has helped provide his family while growing up and now for his current family.

Before moving to South Carolina, McGaughey worked in the products division in Nashville. Nucor is the largest steel products producer in the United States and the largest recycler in North America. Nucor has over 300 operating locations and 30,000 teammates in North America. Nucor had $56 billion in 2021 revenue ranking high on the Forbes Fortune 500 list. Nucor Steel Berkeley, constructed in 1995, sits on an 8,000-acre plant site, including a 6,000-acre conservation easement with 975 employees. McGaughey gave valuable information about the markets they serve, an overview of the global steel industry, particularly the United States, and what's in store for Nucor's future.

At the end of April, the club co-sponsored the Daniel Island Speaker Series featuring the Birds of Prey.

Rotarian Chip Law received the distinct honor of Rotarian of the Month.

Our enemies created supply chain shortages, killed almost 1 million Americans with a bio-weapon, and now have the ability to cut off our external food supply from South America. I am the only one with the knowledge and willpower to save our families.

Rob Rozier: I’ve worked side by side with the farmers of South Carolina for over 30 years. Over the last decade, the farmers are telling me that the commissioner of agriculture no longer hears them. From higher grocery prices to increasing energy costs. We need our South Carolina farmers to be heard. I will work with the agribusiness professionals of our great state to hear their input on how to move South Carolina forward together. Our farmers, our agritainment, our voice. We don’t want to be beholden to donations from outside South Carolina or establishment money that SC certifies your tax dollars are being spent frivolously. It’s time to get South Carolina values back in the department of agriculture, it’s time to get South Carolina farmers their voice back. Vote Rozier for SC Commissioner of Agriculture ‘A Voice For SC Farmers.’

Hugh Weathers: I am a fourth generation farmer which is critical to leading the farmers of our state and having their confidence. I have led the Department of Agriculture for many years and have gained the trust of staff and state leaders. The Department has established its credibility with the public of South Carolina. Like any organization where the tone is set at the top, as Commissioner, I have worked very hard to achieve these levels of trust. I have used my business skills to manage the resources of the Department very effectively and efficiently. Approximately $30 million flows through the Department annually and I have established very thorough accountability procedures. I understand the value of research to listen to the opinions of our constituents to better utilize tax dollars to serve the public better. I am a good evaluator of skills and have placed very talented in key leadership positions in the Department.

What is your leadership style and how will you work with employees and stakeholders to serve the citizens of South Carolina?

Bill Bledsoe: My leadership style is that I serve those that are under me. I communicate with them, find out what they need, get it for them, and get the heck out of their way before I get run over. I empower those under me and then turn them loose. The only purpose of the Department of Agriculture is to help South Carolina’s stakeholders. The stakeholders are both the farmers and the families of South Carolina. It is incredibly hard for farmers to successfully make a living and for families to successfully grow and store their own food from their gardens. In this war, enemies are cutting off both our exports and our imports. Enemies want to destroy our families so that they become the world power in imports and exports. We must make South Carolina food independent to ever win this war.

Rob Rozier: Communication is paramount. The fine folks who work our land have critical data that must be shared for a comprehensive, organized, common sense approach to bettering the lives of our agriculturalists and those who consume their products. Secondly, I’m a fiscal conservative. Too many missteps in large deals like the State farmers market, or excess at taxpayer expense. I can SC Certify that I don’t even like 5-star hotels or fluffy pillows, and I’ve never been on a private plane in my life. Lastly, we need someone to sow the seeds of common sense future growth instead of pet projects that look like they expired six months after the politicians leave. How about broadening access to grain markets, allowing our cattle farmers to have choices for processing their animals, or dare we say more than a single wide slot at our ports. We are a coastal state after all. So it’s really one thing… I’ll listen to South Carolina, not out of state funding.

Hugh Weathers: I lead with an appropriate balance between hands on management and delegation of authority. As people develop in their skills, I am comfortable to delegate more. When necessary I am committed to the difficult conversations that must be had to help in individual development. I believe in accountability and require in myself and in those who seek to earn and maintain my confidence. I understand how the leadership of our state works together and I very happy to fill my part of that servant leadership. In all aspects of the job I have had the privilege to hold, I try at all times to maintain humility with the appreciation that I am in this role to serve the public.

DISA dribbles to Texas to square off in Southern Regional Cup

Daniel Island Soccer Academy Juventus coach Toni Becvinovski said it took talent, hard work and discipline for his U-13 boys’ team to reach the Southern Regional Cup tournament.

It also took various fundraising projects to offset the cost for the trip to the tournament, which will be held June 15-19 in Frisco, Texas.

“It’s going to be very exciting for the guys,” said Becvinovski, a native of Australia, who has an impressive soccer resume as a player and coach. “The kids have done the work and the community has responded to make this trip possible.”

The team created a GoFundMe page and held a lunch at Orlando’s Pizza with 10% of the day’s proceeds going to the team. Other businesses responded with donations, which included having its business logos printed on polo shirts and practice jerseys the team will wear in Texas.

The team also is holding a raffle while the DISA Starz U-15 girls got into the fundraising act and raised more than $1,200 via a car wash and bake sale.

“It was a total team effort,” Becvinovski said. “It was a total community effort.”

DISA Juventus qualified for the Southern Regional by winning the South Carolina State Cup tourney, which was held in Augusta, Georgia, on April 23-24.

The team was dominant in state play, outscoring four foes 18-2 to advance. DISA Juventus finished the spring regular league and tournament games with a perfect record: 16-0-0.

“We were very pleased with how the team handled tough situations on the field in all four games,” Becvinovski said of the state tournament. “The scoreline (5-2) in the final game against the 2009 Bulls Boys Red from Augusta was a true reflection of our dominance. The

passing and movement was exceptional. We looked stronger as an attacking force going forward every time. We were solid in defense and aggressive in all parts of the field. It was a good all-around performance from everyone on the team.”

DISA Juventus has spent the past six weeks preparing the team for the rigors of playing in challenging conditions against very competitive teams. The Southern regional includes teams from South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia.

“Based on previous winners in the U-13 age group, the teams out of Texas have won the competition more than other states,” Becvinovski said. “That is generally expected from states like North Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Texas that have large pools of technically and physically gifted players.”

“It will be a tough week for the players against highly rated opposition,” Becvinovski added. “However, once again, I feel there is enough ability and talent on our team to not only be competitive but win the Southern Regional Cup. I have faith in our boys that, if we continue to play with the same skill and intensity as we did in Augusta, we are going to surprise the so-called bigger teams.”

Eighteen players are on the roster, including 12 from Daniel Island. The roster includes goalkeepers James Fisher, Ellis Fetten; defenders Ralston Potts, Lucas Rizzetto, Peyton Owens, Trevor Tonon, Chase Tonon, Matthew Putignano; midfielders JG Wenger, Louis

Rainero, Gunner Khouri, Leighton Thompson, Brooks Wallace and forwards Graham Winterfield, Rex Ferm, Grayson Barna, Charlie Collier, Michael McColl.
