      In honour of Father’s Day (June 17) and International Axe Throwing Day (June 13), which, yes, is apparently a thing,  Surrey’s Bad Axe Throwing will be offering free axe-throwing lessons to the public tomorrow (June 13).

      Taking place from 5 to 9 p.m., the session will walk guests through the ins and outs of axe throwing, a recreational sport in which participants aim the tool at a wooden target. The class is open to all ages, including kids as long as they’re capable of maneuvering an axe in a safe manner and are accompanied by a guardian.

      Interested attendees should RSVP online. The event happens at Bad Axe Throwing’s Surrey facility (109–8132 130 Street), which is one of seven Canadian locations that will be offering the free lessons. So bring your old man—and let’s hope you'll be pointing the axe away from him.

      Founded in Burlington, Ontario, in 2014, Bad Axe Throwing is billed as the world’s largest urban axe-throwing club. It operates 16 locations in Canada and the U.S., including in Toronto, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Winnipeg.
