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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston 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.

Corporate Comradery

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

Unique Way to Have Fun

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.

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.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The owner of a pay-what-you-can restaurant who was forced to move from their location in North Charleston received a major donation on Wednesday.

Destiny Community Café had to leave its location by the end of October and nearly closed for good after the property manager raised the rent. But members of the community came together – in true Charleston fashion – and helped collect donations for the organization.

Ragina Scott Saunders, the James Island native who founded the café, has been serving up healthy and delicious food to those who need help for almost seven years. Food is donated by local farms, nonprofits, and community partners.

She said the need intensified during the pandemic.

But Saunders learned in October that she and other small businesses would have to leave their location because of a rent increase.

“We tried to negotiate and talk with the manager and the only thing they tried to do is push contracts in my face,” she said.

Since then, there has been an outpouring of support from the community. During a special event on Wednesday, Seacoast Church and the North Charleston Dream Center presented her with a $50,000 check to go towards purchasing a new food truck to better serve those in need across the Lowcountry.

“In 2009, the Seacoast Church and The North Charleston Dream Center had a dream to make an impact in this community. And just like you, we ran into obstacles and a lot of trials. But the generosity of the community coming together through their finances and support helped us maintain and serve thousands,” said organizers with the center.

But that wasn’t all. The owner of Swig and Swine was also at the event and handed over the keys to a second food truck to Saunders.

“I’m a firm believer in the fact that everyone’s giving gifts in order to do God’s work. When I saw the story that you had lost your restaurant, I knew that you needed a new set of tools to help give back to the community like you always do, so we have a truck for you.”

Saunders was named a News 2 Remarkable Woman finalist earlier this year. She thanked her community for their willingness to give back during today’s surprise.

“I thank God, I thank the community for having faith and coming together because this is what it’s all about. This is making it even better to happen for us, even before the new year. We were getting calls from people who are handicapped, disabled, unemployed, sick and a meal is the number one thing they are asking for right now,” she said,

Saunders went on to say, “I thank you all for getting us back up and running on the road with not just one, but two food trucks – the beginning of a fleet – this is God’s work, y’all. Thank y’all.”

Saunders said getting out to the communities will be very beneficial to those who are facing hard times and worried about transportation. “We can feed double, triple, what we’ve been doing,” she said. “We even have people that are disabled so we can come to the apartments, low-income communities – this is a blessing.”

Others in the community have donated $25,000 to the Saunders and Destiny Community Café.

Key takeaways from South Carolina's big win over North Carolina in Duke's Mayo Bowl

CHARLOTTE – Hey, it's bowl season.

Weird things are going to happen – i.e., Shane Beamer receiving a Mayo bath after South Carolina's 38-21 win over North Carolina in the Duke's Mayo Bowl – and coaches will try almost anything.

Clearly, North Carolina had not spent much time planning for Dakereon Joyner taking the majority of the snaps at quarterback. Shane Beamer and USC kept that secret, rolling him out there the first snap of their first drive.

Three plays later, Joyner's first pass since 2019 at Texas A&M went for a 69 yards to Jaheim Bell for a touchdown.

The element of surprise allowed the Gamecocks (7-6) to score early and often as the offense rolled up as many points in the first half, 25, as it had posted in full games nine out of 11 games against FBS competition this season.

UNC (6-7) struggled to get its feet under it and quarterback Sam Howell was bottled up for the much of the game by USC's defense. Howell was sacked three times and hit several more.

South Carolina's winning the Duke's Mayo Bowl closes out Beamer's first season in a big way, the first Gamecocks head coach to win a bowl game in his first season in decades.

Dakereon Joyner: South Carolina's X-factor

The past couple of seasons, fans have been calling for Joyner to get extended playing time at quarterback. Well, they got their wish, and Joyner proved to be the Gamecocks' jolt.

His dual-threat ability wreaked havoc on UNC's defense all afternoon. He threw the long touchdown to open the game and ended the game a perfect 9-for-9 throwing the ball with a 286 passer rating.

The North Charleston native couldn't be contained on the ground either, rushing 10 times for 64 yards to cap the game with 224 total yards of offense.

Joyner still has two years of eligibility. In the days following this stellar performance, it'll be interesting to see what he decides to do.

Kicker Parker White sets South Carolina all-time scoring record

All he needed was 3 points coming in. And Parker White got them early here at the Duke's Mayo Bowl.

With the 30-yard field goal with 27 seconds left in the first quarter in Charlotte, the senior place kicker broke Elliott Fry's program scoring record and now has 363 career points. Fry had 359.

White came into the 2021 season needing 70 points to set a mark program mark.

South Carolina patchwork defense shines vs. UNC

Howell has been graded one of the highest draftable quarterbacks in this class for a while. And while many loved the matchup of him against a depleted defense that was down three starters and missing a few more, Clayton White and his defensive guys were having none of that.

South Carolina kept Howell and the Tar Heels in check for much of the afternoon. It didn't allow UNC to convert a third down until the fourth quarter (finishing 1-for-9) , sacked Howell three times and frankly was in charge of the tempo.

Preview of what South Carolina football could look like in 2022

Plenty of young guys got playing time against North Carolina as several players chose to opt out or transfer, as well as suspensions and some out because of COVID-19 concerns.

Players like defensive lineman Alex Huntley, cornerback Isaiah Norris and running back Juju McDowell all got considerably more snaps than they had and took advantage of the opportunity. McDowell scored a long touchdown run. Huntley had two tackles, including a tackle for loss, and was disruptive a few more times.

Also, with Joyner at quarterback, how Satterfield used his athleticism could be an indicator of what Oklahoma transfer Spencer Rattler could look like in the Gamecocks offense. Rattler of course will just have a better arm.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Hundreds of people will soon be able to receive free dental services due to an expansion of a partnership between a North Charleston church and a non-profit dental clinic.

Since first opening in 1998, North Charleston Dental Outreach said it has provided more than $375,000 worth of dental care for people in the community.

Come summer of 2022, North Charleston Dental Outreach will have a new home. While the non-profit has been offering free dental care to people for more than 20 years, organizers said it’s time for an expansion to reach more people in the community.

The new location will be right next door to the Destiny Worship Center off Azalea Drive in North Charleston. People will be able to walk in and receive free dental services like emergency surgeries, teeth cleanings and removals.

Dr. Bill Sasser and Pastor Larry Goss formed a partnership to offer dental care for many people in the community who don’t have insurance or can’t afford care from a private dental practice.

“Partner with people who know the people in this community more than we do. That’s why we’re excited for this partnership because they’re right there in the community and can direct us on the right path,” said Dr. Sasser, Dental Director of North Charleston Dental Outreach.

The current clinic has three treatment rooms but organizers said it barely has any space for equipment or patients and has outdated technology.

Dr. Sasser and Pastor Goss said the new clinic will be double the size of the current location off Reynolds Avenue. They said it’ll also be fully handicap accessible, have updated technology, and will provide more education and preventative dental measures for patients.

“Not only will people receive services they need or can’t afford, but they can have connections. So after they’ve received dental services, they can come over to the church or food distribution to get resources for them as well,” said Larry Goss, Senior Pastor of the Destiny Worship Center.

The clinic operates with about 20 volunteers. Some are dentists from private practices, and others are dental students from MUSC. Organizers said they hope the new expansion will bring more volunteers to provide more services. The clinic said funds for the expansion came from community donations and some grants.

The clinic said free services aren’t only limited to people in North Charleston since they’ve had patients travel from Walterboro, Orangeburg and North Carolina.

Charleston’s December was second-warmest recorded as unusual heat blanketed US

Last month was the second-warmest December ever recorded in Charleston, according to weather records that stretch back to 1937.Normally, the average temperature at the weather station by the airport in North Charleston is about 52 degrees during the last month of the year, Peter Mohlin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said.But this December, on average, the mercury hit about 59 — a 7-degree departure.The only warmer December was in 2015, when the average temperature was 63.5, Mohlin said.T...

Last month was the second-warmest December ever recorded in Charleston, according to weather records that stretch back to 1937.

Normally, the average temperature at the weather station by the airport in North Charleston is about 52 degrees during the last month of the year, Peter Mohlin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said.

But this December, on average, the mercury hit about 59 — a 7-degree departure.

The only warmer December was in 2015, when the average temperature was 63.5, Mohlin said.

The figure is the latest move indicating on a small scale what is happening across the planet: global warming, driven mostly by planet-insulating gases that are being spewed into Earth’s atmosphere.

“We’re definitely seeing all over the country fewer record lows being set and a lot more record highs,” said Andrew Pershing, the director of climate science at the nonprofit group Climate Central.

The changing climate is driven mostly by carbon emissions from coal- and gas-fueled power stations, gas-burning cars, trucks and watercraft, and some farming practices. These gases, which include carbon dioxide and methane, trap solar energy that would have otherwise escaped the atmosphere, making the planet warmer on average.

And so far, data has shown that colder places and colder periods are showing the warming signal the most. The Arctic, for example, is warming three times as fast as the global average, according to the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme. That includes, in part, the Greenland Ice Shelf, a massive store of frozen water that is pushing sea levels higher as it melts.

In the United States, winter is also the fastest-warming season, Pershing said. An analysis by Climate Central showed this was the case in most states, or 38 of the 49 analyzed.

Another contributor to this December’s warmth in South Carolina was the La Niña weather pattern, Pershing said. Usually associated with a higher chance of hurricane formation in the Atlantic, the pattern also tends to make the Southeast and East Coast warmer.

But warm weather has largely blanketed the continental United States east of the Rocky Mountains this winter, with some locations, like in Texas, reaching as high as 15 degrees above normal, Pershing said.

Typically, Charleston’s coldest single month every year is in January, with an average temperature of 49.5. The month started with a strong front that brought damaging winds, toppling a church steeple and collapsing scaffolding in the Charleston area.

Mohlin said there is no clear sign that the warmer atmosphere had influenced that storm. Farther north, the same system dropped several inches of snow on parts of Virginia and the mid-Atlantic, causing a traffic mess on Interstate 95 near Washington, D.C., that had extended well into the morning of Jan. 4.

Williams hopes to open soon in the shop next to Byrd’s Famous Cookies.

She has applied for a license to sell beer, wine and liquor for on-premise use in the 589-square-foot shop that offers an upstairs as well. Williams plans to offer wines made in the Carolinas, local beer, charcuterie and desserts.

Sweet spot

A dessert shop that once was located in West Ashley plans to open soon in Mount Pleasant.

Gala Desserts is expected to welcome customers by mid-January at 123 Pitt St. in the Old Village. The shop previously was located at 829 Savannah Highway in Avondale.

What’s cooking?

Another new dining option is coming to North Charleston.

Alamo Ranch Restaurant plans to open at 5611 Rivers Ave. in Gas Lite Square Shopping Center.

An opening date has not been announced, but the eatery recently applied for a license to sell beer, wine and liquor for on-site use.

On the way

Rooted Bottle Market and Bar recently applied for its license to sell beer and wine for onsite and offsite use in northern Mount Pleasant.

The new shop will occupy 1,267 square feet at 3510 Park Avenue Blvd., Building 2, Suite 100, in The Bend at Carolina Park, a retail strip center of five buildings near Costco Wholesale.

Three of the buildings are fully leased with a variety of retail shops and restaurants as well as fitness centers and professional services, according to the commercial real estate firm Belk|Lucy’s website.

A fourth building has leases in four of the six spaces and the final building is being marketed for tenants.
