Last week, the OXA held its first ever axe throwing event. Approx. 40 members and their guests arrived at BATL Axe Throwing on Lancaster Road to participate in the event.
After signing in, participants enjoyed a delicious hot and cold sandwich buffet provided by Ottawa Events Catering while also practicing their axe throwing. During the tournament portion of the evening, each person threw several rounds against their fellow competitors until there were only two competitors left. The final showdown to determine the champion saw Jason Applejohn of the green team, throwing against Paz Blundell of the purple team.
Congratulations to the 2019 OXA Axe Throwing Champion… PAZ BLUNDELL!
