Went with a work retreat. Spencer was great. Instructions are clear, throwing is fun and doable at a fun level of competition on first visit. Totally worth a trip or work function. Great local beer as well.

Matt (with the red beard) was amazing with our group tonight - he was constantly making jokes and making sure everybody was having fun! His positivity and humour made our night - when we come back, we’re requesting Matt hands down!
