Throw for the Firies
Hurl a hatchet to raise money for bushfire relief.
January 09, 2020
Feeling worked up about the bushfires currently raging across the country? Perhaps chucking an axe at a target will help. Actually, if you book a session at 11am on Sunday, January 26, we know it will.
Hurling hatchets is Lumber Punks' usual gambit, with the venue letting Brisbanites throw bladed weapons — at a target, in controlled circumstances — since it opened back in 2018. On Australia Day, however, it's donating 100-percent of all fees for its 11am session to the Rural Fire Services in New South Wales and the Department of Fire and Emergency Services in Western Australia.
That's what Throw for the Firies is all about. For $45, you'll spend 90 minutes flinging axes and assisting a worthy cause.
Just remember that you'll need to wear enclosed shoes that cover your toes, because safety is paramount.
Lumber Punks is booze-free, but there'll non-alcoholic beverages and snacks available.
