Father’s Day

What better way to celebrate that man that sired birth than an afternoon chucking steel at wood?  Forget the classic tie in a box or replacement shaver heads and get dad something the whole family can enjoy!

On Father’s Day we’ll have the Garrison open for all dad’s and their entourages for a day of archery and weapon throwing mayhem (fun) and to make it even more special, we’re offering $10 off the entire groups tab!  That means dad almost throws for free!

Hope to see you out!
