FlannelJax’s, a lumberjack sports destination, is opening May 13 at 1212 US 377, Ste. 103, Roanoke.

At FlannelJax’s, guests can try their hand at Thump the Stump, crosscut sawing or a variety of ax-throwing games. Thump the Stump is a game in which players compete to see who can drive a nail into a log with the fewest hits, while crosscut sawing lets players work together to saw through a log.

Guests are guided through the ax-throwing experience by a lumberjack coach who helps ensure safety and tailors games for different skill levels and numbers of guests. Franchise owners Cyndy Brown and Ryan Fuller said that the business is designed to accommodate large groups for corporate events and parties as well as smaller, more casual groups.

“We’ve been in corporate America for a long time, and we’re experienced with facilitating corporate events,” Fuller said. “We thought it would be a great opportunity to bring the brand down here and offer that premiere experience for businesses in the area.”

This is the first FlannelJax’s in Texas. Locations are also open or coming soon in Michigan, Minnesota, Washington and Wisconsin. 682-237-7518. www.flanneljaxs.com
