Deep Creek Axe Throwing Company open for business

From The Garrett County Republican

McHENRY — Axes are flying at Deep Creek Lake, but they are not being used for chopping down trees.

The same people who brought Monkey Business Adventure Park and the Deep Creek Ninja Factory to the area have started a new sport venture, Deep Creek Axe Throwing Company.

“We wanted to come up with another activity where families could get active and we thought this would be a great sister activity to Monkey Business,” said manager Jordan Smith. “It is a great stress reliever, super fun and yet another way to get active.”
