The EIT committee will be hosting a socializing event on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League in Kitchener. Please note if you attended the event last year, the location has changed to a different venue. The event will be a great opportunity to meet and network with EITs in the Grand River Region and try Axe Throwing. Tickets include two hours of axe throwing, and an introduction with a trained instructor.  Dinner (pizza) and drinks (water) will also be provided. Members from Grand River PEO will be on hand to talk about what PEO has to offer EITs.

Axe throwing at is simplest is like darts…but with an axe. It’s great low-impact exercise and provides an easy going environment for socializing and meeting new people. There will be an orientation at the beginning of your event where participants will be shown how to throw the axe, so beginners are welcome (and encouraged)!

Check out BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League’s website for more details:

Please note that the venue is licensed and does sell beverages. PEO will be providing pizza and water. If participants wish to have beverages other than PEO provided water or food other than PEO provided pizza feel free to purchase any from the venue.
