The NATF and our members were recently featured on CBS Philly, where they stated that "Seventeen Philadelphia residents, who are regulars at Urban Axes in Kensington, will be taking part in the National Axe Throwing Championship this Sunday in Toronto."
They talked about the strength and support of the event, by quoting Gelatko and Rigger from Urban Axes that said that one of the special things about this tournament is even though there is only one winner, everyone roots each other on and supports each other.
