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 Folly Beach, 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 Folly Beach, 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
Stress Relief

Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in Folly Beach 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

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.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A recent policy change from Charleston County Parks has raised concerns among some residents on Folly Beach.

It now costs $5 to park at Folly Pier all day, but it was free with the park’s Gold Pass.

The county says the policy change is due to the ongoing construction of the pier and the limited number of parking spaces available.

Some residents are concerned that this is another step to limit parking on the island and argue that you’re not getting what you paid for when the pass was purchased.

“The gold pass was already free to park in places so I feel like to randomly do that and with everything going on and the construction has been going on for a while,” Alaina Rodriguez said.

“You paid for it because you wanted to do that and they can’t just change it without giving you a heads up,” Liliane Braun said.

The Gold Pass costs between $55 and $85 per year and can be used at multiple parking locations around the county.

Charleston County Parks responded to a request for comment in a pair of statements saying the policy change isn’t new and was done out of necessity.

“Due to limited parking, Charleston County Parks removed parking at the Folly Beach Pier as a Gold Pass benefit over a year ago, on Dec. 1, 2020, shortly after construction began on the pier,” the statement reads. “Customers who purchased or renewed their Gold Passes after this date were informed that the pier parking was no longer a benefit. Those who had purchased or renewed Gold Passes prior to Dec. 1, 2020, were still able to park at the pier until their annual pass expired.”

The county says there are currently 34 parking spaces at the pier and they want to accommodate as many people as possible.

“Free parking remains a Gold Pass benefit at Folly Beach County Park, and with the opening of the Dunes House at that park, guests enjoy many of the same amenities of the pier plus ample parking. In just the last few years, Charleston County Parks has also expanded the Gold Pass to include admission and parking at several new parks: Stono River County Park, Meggett County Park and the West County Aquatic Center. Offering vehicle admission into 15 County Parks and several special events, the Gold Pass is a great value,” the statement reads.

S.C. DNR: Sea turtle nest disturbance will result in fines and community service

For Bluffton Today

Three people are facing fines and restitution in the form of community service work with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources’ sea turtle program after they filmed themselves digging up a loggerhead nest on Folly Beach last summer.

The incident occurred during the peak of South Carolina’s sea turtle nesting season in July.

In early September, DNR officers in Charleston County were provided with a copy of a Snapchat video that appeared to show two young men digging up a sea turtle nest marked with the highly visible orange tape and signage used by members of DNR’s Marine Turtle Conservation program staff and volunteers.

Marine biologists with DNR’s Marine Resources Division oversee a well-established network of volunteer groups up and down the coast whose members spend countless hours each summer during nesting season walking the beach to identify and protect the vulnerable nests.

The video sent to DNR showed a nesting site marked with an orange DNR sign and two individuals digging up — and later attempting to replace — the eggs from the nest. One egg was smashed on the ground during the video, which was being filmed by a third individual.

Officer Freddie Earhart led the investigation into the source of the video. Earhart was able to identify and locate the three individuals involved. On Sept. 5, Earhart and officer Courtney Angotti-Smith made contact with the individuals, who were all under 21 and were vacationing with family at the time.

A meeting was set up with all three suspects and their parents, at which time the young men made voluntary statements confirming their involvement and that they were aware such actions were against the law.

The suspects admitted that some of the eggs were damaged and they tried to rebury the eggs, which resulted in additional damage. Marine Turtle Conservation program coordinator Michelle Pate, using data collected by the Folly Beach turtle watch team, was able to confirm that out of 90 eggs remaining in the nest, 71 did not hatch.

While they could have been charged for each egg disturbed, based on the cooperation of the suspects, five summons for unlawful taking of loggerhead turtle eggs were issued to the three suspects (two each for the individuals who dug up the eggs and one for the individual who filmed them). These charges can carry jail or fines of up to $2,000, as well as restitution.

DNR will recommend that all of the individuals be required to dedicate community service time to working with DNR’s Marine Turtle Conservation program so they can learn first-hand about how much work goes into protecting sea turtles in South Carolina.

DNR’s sea turtle program began in 1977 with beach management research and in-water tracking of post-nesting loggerheads. The program further developed in the early 1980s with the formation of the nest protection and stranding volunteer networks along the coast of South Carolina. Today, the program provides training and support to more than 1,300 volunteers across the coast who protect nests and document sea turtles that wash ashore.

“Educating residents and visitors about how they can provide a positive outcome for sea turtles on our beaches is a never-ending endeavor,” Pate said. “Volunteers involved with conservation work in South Carolina have contributed countless hours to this task.

“Our volunteers engage with the coastal community daily during the season to share their excitement about the natural world and our impact sharing the beach with wildlife that need these beaches to survive. Education provides a pathway to inform and foster stewardship, and combined with boots-on-the-ground work, ensures the continued protection and successful recovery of sea turtle populations.”

Those decades of research and hard work supported by Turtle Network volunteers in South Carolina’s coastal communities have paid off. Recent years have seen turtle nest numbers rebounding, though much remains to be done. It was a successful nesting year for South Carolina’s sea turtle population, with 5,649 nests laid in 2021.

Because nesting exacts a high energy toll on the large reptiles, female sea turtles do not come ashore to lay eggs every year. This pattern results in nesting fluctuations from year to year; 2019 broke all records with 8,795 nests, but 2018 saw just 2,767 nests. Overall, sea turtle nest numbers across the Southeast have trended up over the past decade, making biologists across the region optimistic that these threatened reptiles are beginning to recover after several decades of conservation efforts.

“I applaud the work of our officers in conducting this investigation in a thorough and prompt way,” said Col. Chisolm Frampton, deputy director for DNR’s Law Enforcement Division. “Hopefully, giving these individuals a chance to make amends by working with the dedicated staff and volunteers who work with our turtle protection program as a part of the Community Service component of their punishment will make a lasting impression on them about the importance of this work and why all of us, as South Carolinians, need to support it.”

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCSC) - Folly Beach leaders plan to provide an electronic payment option for drivers using the city’s existing paid parking spaces.

The City of Folly Beach says it made nearly $1.7 million in parking fees in 2021, an increase of almost 56% over 2020′s $1.1 million, before expenses.

Starting in January, the city will extend its “TapToPay” option so that every paid parking spot will have an electronic option. The city started rolling out the ParkWhiz program in some areas this summer as another option for payment.

City administrator Aaron Pope says they want to make it clear that through this program, they are not adding any additional paid parking, just adding an electronic option to existing pay-to-park spaces.

Pope says currently there are 2,881 right-of-way parking spaces on Folly Beach and 9% of those are paid spots. He says they plan to keep it that way for now.

All of the pay-to-park areas include public beach access, some areas of Arctic Avenue and the Washout on Ashley Avenue.

Folly Beach City Council will give a summary of their parking payment collection and traffic enforcement plan Tuesday at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

After expenses, Folly Beach says it made nearly $1.3 million in parking fees in 2021. That figure is more than they expected to make, after budgeting for $833,376.02 this year.

Pope says after the companies running the paid parking and parking enforcement programs are paid, the city uses the remaining funds to pay for road shoulder improvements, beach access improvements and repairs, public safety calls, beach and litter patrol, and extra sanitation runs at the beach accesses during the summer.

Folly Beach also reports that over 11,000 parking citations were issued this year and 79% of those have been collected.

The city’s parking contractor, Jared Glass, says they collect unpaid citations by sending late notices to folks who have a citation that is 30 days delinquent. If not paid, they send a follow-up late notice at 60 days informing them of the fine and the intention to release the owed fine to a collection agency. At 90 days, the citation is eligible to be sent to a collections agency to attempt to collect the fine.

Glass says they also have a vehicle immobilization device for violators that they encounter.

Pope says all paid access spots on Folly except for three will still offer a physical pay station option. Those are the 10E access, 1587E access, and the 1670E access.

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Three people are facing fines and possible community service for filming themselves digging up a loggerhead turtle nest on Folly Beach, the state’s Department of Natural Resources says.

The incident happened this past July, the peak of South Carolina’s sea turtle nesting season, according to a release from SCDNR.

In early September, SCDNR officers in Charleston County said they received a copy of a Snapchat video that appeared to show two young men digging up a sea turtle nest and later attempting to replace the eggs from the nest.

“A meeting was set up with all three suspects and their parents, at which time the young men made voluntary statements confirming their involvement and that they were aware such actions were against the law,” SCDNR spokesman David Lucas said.

The suspects admitted that some of the eggs were damaged and that they tried to rebury the eggs, which ultimately resulted in additional damage, he said.

SCDNR Marine Turtle Conservation Program coordinator Michelle Pate, using data collected by the Folly Beach Turtle Watch team, was able to confirm that out of ninety eggs remaining in the nest, seventy-one did not hatch.
