The Flip’n Axe is a Veteran Owned Indoor Axe Throwing facility for adults and children ages 10 and up looking to try something new in a fun atmosphere. It was founded by Robert E Miller II and David J Green. Like many Veterans, Robert and Dave come from very humble beginnings. Hard-working Lower Middle-Class of America. Growing up there weren’t many opportunities to succeed, other than work a skilled labor position or the military. Not knowing each other at the time, they served in the United States Marine Corps. Both men were forward deployed to OIF & OEF over the span of their military careers. After separating from active service, like many war-time veterans they had a difficult time transitioning back into civilian life. Working a normal job was not quite enough for them and not fulfilling at all. While exploring job opportunities in Dallas,TX. Robert was exposed to the sport of Indoor Axe Throwing. He thought the sport would be a great fit for Eastern NC. So he brought the fun new concept back with him. In April of 2018, The Flip’n Axe was born. A wild new concept in a rather conservative southern town was a monsterous gamble. However it quickly paid off. The Flip’n Axe became the talk of the town in every local newspaper and the local television & radio stations.
The Flip’n Axe is unlike anything in our industry. We put the customer experience and safety first and foremost. Our staff is consistently pushing the boundaries with new ideas and innovative teaching techniques that has given our customers the ultimate ‘Axe-perience’. As Veterans we are proud of our great Nation and we want to preserve the ‘American Dream’. We take care of our own, FIRST by giving employment opportunities to our fellow veterans. We take pride in supporting local businesses and our community involvement is a critical part of our Core Values.
Allen County native Joel Steele, a Marine Corps Veteran and close friend of Robert Miller loved the concept of axe throwing so much he opened the Bowling Green, Kentucky location in May 2019. It is a shining example of what we stand for and finally something we find as equally rewarding as serving our country. That is serving our community; providing a common place where the community can come together, celebrate and share in the fun. The Flip’n Axe offers corporate parties, team building events, birthday parties and more!
PMA would like to thank The Flip ‘N Axe for its inaugural sponsorship of a meeting and encourages PMA members to visit its newly-opened Bowling Green location. PMA appreciates the community-driven nature of its members. Listen to The Flip ‘N Axe presentation at the July 16, 2019 membership meeting.
