Ironside Axe Club: Pella


Pella, Iowa - Small town living with BIG character. See why people love living here!

If you ask people about Pella, you'll probably hear about Dutch letters and Tulip Time, our three-day festival the first weekend in May where we celebrate our Dutch heritage.

We also enjoy being home to two of Iowa's largest employers - Vermeer Corporation and Pella Windows and Doors, as well as Central College, a four-year liberal arts school in the heart of Iowa.

Here are a few more reasons to live in Pella:

Have you been to Ironside Axe Club: Pella? It's an indoor axe range offering competitive throwing, leagues, lessons, and so much family fun. There's no age limit as long as children can handle an axe and are accompanied by adults.
Lisa and Scott Gardner have been throwing things for two decades. The draw for them started when they participated in reenactment competitions in Archery and Knives which consists of throwing the axe, knife, and spear outside in period garb.
They've put their passion to work and have opened five axe throwing ranges across the Midwest for the general public. Dutch Greeters welcomed the Gardners to Pella and Scott showed us some trick shots including cutting the ribbon!
Ironside Axe Club is also a member of the World Axe Throwing League and has 100 - 150 people competing against throwers in over 500 venues across the globe. Throwers earn circuit points and the top 128 throwers advance to the world championship.
The Pella location opened in March and offers beer, seltzer, cider, canned cocktails, and wines, but definitely bring your own food!
Book a birthday party, join a league, hold a corporate event, or hang out and learn some trick shots.

Ironside Axe Club Pella Sunday Hatchet Finals


Pella Youth League Finals


Friends and Family of Ironside. We lost a shining star today. Our friend and club manager, Cece Schlechter passed away this morning. Her smile and drive was a massive part of what make our Pella location so special. We were blessed to have her as part of the Ironside family. Cece embodied what we call Axe Fam. She wanted everyone to feel welcome and everyone to have a good time. She was also a fierce competitor and 100% dedicated to throwing. We were planning on being able to cheer her on at worlds this year.
Just this past weekend Cece said she wanted to host a tournament for Saint Patrick's Day Weekend. The proceeds from this tournament will will go to the family. A Go Fund me account is also being set up. Please consider coming to participate in Cece's Shamrock Shenanigans tournament.

Cece We already miss you.

Everyone brought back some prize money and placed well.
