BATL Calgary And Engage!18 Canada

abailey ()

Wedding season is well upon us, but that doesn’t mean that people aren’t already planning weddings. Every year a group of wedding influencers get together to put on a show for all those wedding planners to be – this year taking place in Canada, Italy, Ireland, and Mexico. The Backyard Axe Throwing League Calgary got to provide the axe throwing for Engage!18 Canada (the premier luxury wedding business summit) at the Fairmont Banff Springs. The wedding industry elite gather for three days of inspiration, education, and celebration in Banff, Alberta.

Engage! 18 Canada

With new event destinations that are sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests popping up all the time, deciding what is right for your bachelor/bachelorette party can be difficult. Engage!18 is designed for committed wedding industry professionals looking for innovative ideas and practical solutions for strategic growth – dedicated to gathering the best of the best. “Careful attention is paid to creating an intimate atmosphere that blends structure and downtime, allowing for candid networking in a non-client, non-competitive environment. The open exchange of ideas, information, and strategies for facing the challenges of the luxury wedding industry are a hallmark of the event — often imitated, never repeated.” Engage! is famous for its keynote speakers, all leaders in the wedding industry. Luxury lifestyle specialists, creative entrepreneurs, and editorial directors of leading magazines and websites are just some of the highlights.

The Backyard Axe Throwing League Calgary was thrilled to offer outdoor axe throwing for the Engage! 18 Canada guests and keynote speakers during the Welcome Party on 18 June at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. The team fit right into the theme of “Canada,” along with sled dogs, the Hudson Bay Campany, campfires, dinner, music and drinks throughout the night!

Backyard Axe Throwing League Calgary

BATL Calgary is located just an hour and a half outside of the beautiful surroundings of Banff and is the perfect setting for a unique stag and doe or bachelor/bachelorette party. Almost 3 years ago the Backyard Axe Throwing League Calgary opened up shop in the North East and has been bringing the urban sport of axe throwing to not just Airdrie, Chestermere, Calgary, and the surrounding area but with guests coming from all over Alberta and Western Canada. Located near Sunridge Mall at Deerfoot Trail and 16th Ave. NE. BATL Calgary offers the best indoor axe throwing experience – pioneered by us at the Backyard Axe Throwing League back in 2006.

Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties with BATL Calgary

It’s well known that the days of traditional bachelor/bachelorette parties are over, and people are looking for new and exciting ways to celebrate with their friends. The Backyard Axe Throwing League offers the perfect opportunity to host a bachelor/bachelorette party that your guests won’t soon forget. The competitive aspect of axe throwing is also a great way to kick off any bachelor or bachelorette party. It gets everybody engaged, gets the friendly one-upping going, and gets the adrenaline pumping. There’s a reason why competitive activities are so often used in bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, and stag and does: because it gets everyone involved, no matter what the age or skill.

Our private group tournaments are suited for groups of 2 or more (most BATL venues can facilitate 80+ people), and last 2 – 2.5 hours. Each axe throwing event begins with hands-on training from our skilled and dedicated axe coaches, followed by a round-robin style tournament and single elimination playoff – in order to crown a champion for the day. Our coaches are world-renowned for providing the best axe throwing experience possible while providing the utmost hospitality – and a few laughs along the way. Our coaches are even famous for sabering bottles of champagne with an axe – a sure bet to provide excellent photo documentation of your time with us.
