The 2018 season concluded with a full day of axe throwing spanning 12 hours. Competitors participated in up to 5 individual events, including a Skills Competition and the NATC, together with hundreds of spectators. A formal celebration with 400 attendees closed the weekend with awards, dinner, dancing and professional photography.
Over 1,000 of the NATF’s top players, based on 2018 league standings, competed for seeding in the National Axe Throwing Championship’s (NATC) 192-person tournament bracket 3 months prior to 2019 All-Star Weekend. At that time the NATF awarded the largest prize pool ever in an urban axe throwing tournament, with $20,000 divided among the top 12 finishers.
