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 Hanahan, 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 Hanahan, 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.

Axe Throwing
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 Hanahan 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.

Perhaps more importantly, axe tossing is a safe, fun way to conduct trust exercises and build team morale overall.

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.

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.

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.

Resident shares concern over Railroad Avenue extension project in Hanahan

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Work to extend Railroad Avenue is underway in Hanahan. But after seeing the construction, one person who lives near the project says they have some concerns.

Trees are being removed along the railroad tracks to make room for a two-lane road that will soon connect a portion of Hanahan that currently can only be accessed by using Rivers Avenue.

“There are so many concerns,” said Thomas Cato. “The one that really bothers me: the quality of water. The Goose Creek Reservoir supplies Berkeley County, Charleston County, and parts of Dorchester County. So, the runoff from that extension will run into the reservoir.”

Cato lives in the Lakewood Lodge Apartments which is located between the railroad and the Goose Creek reservoir.

A portion of the 1.2-mile Railroad Avenue extension is being constructed between the train tracks and the apartment complex.

He’s also worried about wildlife near the project.

“The area right beside the wildlife preserve will have to be severely impacted by increasing that roadbed,” he said. “There’s pelicans, there’s egrets, there’s the fish- a lot of people that love to fish and they’re catching bass all day long.”

Cato says the way the tracks and road will be laid out will increase noise for people in the nearby apartments.

“Since the railroad track is up at the top of the hill, the water reserve is at the bottom of the hill, the noise at the top of the hill will propagate out into the water.”

Berkeley County and Hanahan officials say this extension is needed to allow emergency services to access Otranto and Eagle Landing subdivisions in case an emergency happens, and a train was to block the railroad crossings.

Right now, there is no way in or out other than driving over train tracks.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation performed an environmental assessment on the project. It says the impact is acceptable – you can read a copy of that report by clicking here.

Still, Cato says believes the impact is going to be too great, and it will make living at his home more difficult.

“They’re definitely going to have problems getting people and now that the tree line has been cut down and there’s going to be traffic right up against the buildings in the apartment complex.”

Construction on the project began earlier this month.

Officials with SCDOT say it should take about 18 months to complete.

The Skip Parker Invitational tournament presented area grapplers with a chance to test themselves in a bracket format at Fort Dorchester High School on Jan. 8.

Wrestlers vied for titles in 14 weight classes while also earning points for their respective teams.

Hanahan was the team winner, compiling 147 points to edge runner-up Socastee by five and a half points. The host team placed third with 123 points, followed by Bishop England and Cross to round out the top five.

The tournament honors former Fort Dorchester coach Skip Parker, who lost a long battle with cancer in the summer of 2020 not long before his 50th birthday. Parker was also a former wrestler and football player at Summerville.

Parker served in the U.S. Marine Corps and volunteered time to several causes including Toys for Tots and Community Clean Up.

Wrestlers from the Berkeley County School District found the top of the podium in eight weight classes.

Cross led the BCSD in individual winners: Cameron White (145), Antwain Hoskins (152) and Amonte McCray (285).

Hanahan and Berkeley won a pair of weight classes. Gavin Qualls (132) and Kevin Rivera (220) rose to the challenge for the Hawks. Luke Gadsden (182) and Storm Judy (195) captured crowns for Berkeley.

Philip Simmons’ Dustin McDonnell finished first at 120.

The Hawks also snagged five runner-up finishes.

‘He doesn’t deserve this’: Hanahan Family speaks after student assaulted at Minnesota college

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Five years ago at the age of 15 Chad Waldrop picked up a new sport and started swimming for West Ashley High School.“It’s his life. It really is. He loves it. He took to it right away and it became his life,” said his father Jerry Waldrop, but now Chad is putting that passion on hold as he fights for his life.His Dad Jerry just wants to take away the pain of his son.“The thought of him not being able to swim again just hurts, hurts,” said Jerry.On Saturday...

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Five years ago at the age of 15 Chad Waldrop picked up a new sport and started swimming for West Ashley High School.

“It’s his life. It really is. He loves it. He took to it right away and it became his life,” said his father Jerry Waldrop, but now Chad is putting that passion on hold as he fights for his life.

His Dad Jerry just wants to take away the pain of his son.

“The thought of him not being able to swim again just hurts, hurts,” said Jerry.

On Saturday, September 18th both Jerry and Chad’s life changed in a matter of five seconds.

“It’s just, it’s just, you know, to think you almost lost your kid and you want to do everything for him, you want to be there for him. It’s your worst nightmare. It really is,” said Jerry.

Police say Chad walked out the back door of his house in Minnesota where he attended school at St. Cloud State University to the sounds of a woman screaming. Reports state she appeared to be in a fight with a man. Moments later Waldrop was slammed to the ground, punched repeatedly, and knocked out.

“Just by the witnesses and what they told me it was really unprovoked and unwarranted and just evil, evil,” said Jerry.

The suspect Ezaya Oropeza is a wrestler at the university and is now charged with assault 3rd degree and could face five years in prison.

“Why, why, why? He’s a good kid. He doesn’t deserve this,” said Jerry.

Chad suffered a concussion, multiple fractures in his face, and cuts in his mouth.

“Basically, it looks like a jigsaw puzzle. It’s all broken,” said Jerry and now the family is demanding justice.

“It tears you up. I just I can’t. I want to take it away from him. I want the pain. Give me the pain. I don’t want my child to have that,” said Jerry.

Chad’s family has set up a GoFundMe, as well as a page dedicated to holding accountable those responsible. Click here for more information.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- Whether you’ve recently moved to the Lowcountry or are just here for a quick visit, there are some names you find there are some names that are pronounced differently than you may think.

Here are some names of places you might be pronouncing wrong:

Beaufort

Pronouncing the name of this Lowcountry town can be a little confusing for new residents and tourists alike as it is often mistakenly pronounced like a town with the same name in North Carolina. There, it’s pronounced “bow-fort”, but here you’ll want to pronounce it like “byou” so that it rhymes with “you.”

Beaufain

Like Beaufort, you’ll want to pronounce the beginning part of the name of this Charleston street like “byou.”

Berkeley

You’ll want to skip the middle e when pronouncing the name of this county. Instead of “burk-eh-lee,” you should say “burk-lee.”

Bonneau

While it’s technically acceptable to pronounce this Berkeley County town like the popular name of the U2 lead singer (bahn-oh), you may get some funny looks from locals who insist it should be pronounced like “bun-oh.”

Chechesee River

This one stumps even locals and pronunciation can seem daunting at first glance, but like the river, the sound of this river is fluid. There is no emphasis on any syllable so all are soft-sounding and it should be pronounced like “chuh-chessie.”

Citadel

Contrary to what it may seem, Citadel should not rhyme with “bell,” but instead be pronounced like “sit-uh-dl.”

Cooper River

The most common way to pronounce the name of the Charleston river is as “coo-pur,” but don’t be surprised if you hear some old Charlestonians pronounce the double ‘o’ the same way as in ‘look.’ The traditional pronunciation is techincally “cuh-pur.”

Edisto

You’ll want to be careful putting emphasis on the wrong syllable on this one. It’s simply pronounced “eh-dis-toe.” But you may here “eddie-stow” from some people with strong Gullah-Geechee accents.

Gaillard

The name of this popular event venue downtown is most commonly pronounced as “gill-yard.”

Hasell Street

Think of the eye color when you want to say the name of this Downtown street. It should be pronounced “hay-zul” instead of rhyming with “tassle.”

Huger

This is a tough one and while it may seem straightforward, it’s not. For this one, drop the ‘h’ and say “u-gee” or just drop the ‘r’ and say “hu-gee.” Whatever you do, don’t pronounce the ‘r’ if you’re talking about Huger Street in Charleston.

Kiawah

Drop the middle syllable and pronounce the name of this island as “key-wah.”

Legare

There’s a couple places around the Lowcountry that feature this name. To make sure you get it right, pronounce it like “luh-gree.”

Manigualt

This name is all over South Carolina and the Lowcountry, so it’s a good idea to get familiar with its pronunciation. It should be said as “man-uh-go,” as the ‘t’ is a silent letter.

McLeod

The end of the name of the James Island plantation is pronounced like the puffs in the sky: “muh-cloud.”

Prioleau

There’s no shame in struggling with this name as even some locals still can’t get it right. The Charleston street is pronounced as “pray-low.”

Ribaut

Ribaut Road is one of the primary streets in Beaufort and is said as “ree-bow,” again with a silent ‘t.’

Salkehatchie

On first glance, the name of this town and river can seem daunting to pronounce. But really, it’s easy than it seems. The first part is pronounced like the beginning of “salt,” so the full pronunciation is “sal-kuh-hatch-ee.”

Vanderhorst

This one is a bit tricky as there are several accepted pronunciations including “van-der-horst,” “van-dross,” and “van-draws.” Although, most often you’ll hear it pronounced the first way.

Yeamans

This golf club in Hanahan is pronounced as “yay-mens.”

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCSC) - Hanahan Middle School is hiring a new, first year principal from within the Berkeley County School District.

Kelli Roberson has been with Berkeley County Schools for 20 years, and the district says she starts her first school year as a principal on Monday.

Roberson did her student practicum at Hanahan Middle when she was a student at the College of Charleston. So she says her new role as principal is a full circle moment.

This year she’s launching “flex time.” she says it’s an allotted amount of time after lunch for intentional and purposeful intervention. This allows teachers to assess where students are in their education, as well as socially and emotionally. Roberson says it also gives teachers time to discuss areas they would like to improve.

The Hanahan Middle School guidance department is also implementing what they call minute meetings, Roberson says. Guidance counselors will meet with every student for at least one minute at the beginning of the year, making sure kids have a one-on-one conversation with a counselor.

“Well, for some of our kids, they haven’t been inside a school building in 18 months. So, it’s just, you know, not only are we going to be thinking about their academics, but we’re having to re-teach the norms of being around people and being connected to others,” Roberson said. “I’m sure they’ve missed that, I think teachers, adults missed it when we were not in a building with one-another, so it’s just a way to continue to build those connections.”

She adds that there are some learning methods that were advanced during the pandemic that they plan to keep in place.

“I think just using technology as a means of, especially when students are out and absent, knowing that we can still provide that instruction when students aren’t present in the building, whatever that reason might be,” Roberson said. “And it’s also just using the tools that are available just to make sure all students have access to notes and any kind of resources they can use to go back and re-learn something or just as a reminder, it’ll help them do the work that they need to do.”

Roberson says there’s a lot of history and community support around Hanahan Middle School which is encouraging for this first-time principal.
