Urban Axes Boston will be hosting IATC Round 1 on Friday, 3/22 and Sunday, 3/24! We will be running heats of up to 4 throwers per hour from 7:00-10:00 PM on Friday, 11:00 AM-3:00 PM on Saturday, and 3:00-6:00 PM on Sunday. We will add additional heats if these timeslots fill up, but please contact Nathan if you cannot attend any of the currently available timeslots. All Round 1 qualifiers must throw between Friday, March 22nd and Sunday, March 24th (IATF mandated), but we will attempt to accomodate reasonable scheduling conflicts if possible.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your timeslot for check-in and warm-up throws. We will have a practice arena available only to those scheduled for the next heat. Heats will begin promptly at the scheduled time and should last around 30-45 minutes, beginning with 75 hatchet throws and finishing with 15 big axe throws. Scores will be recorded in Axescores so remember to confirm your score with the scorekeeper after each 15-throw round, as matches are locked once they are submitted. Thank you and good luck!
