    Throw a baton…I will have to wait awhile to do that.

    So our Chaska teams hit some walls this past weekend. THE RINGERS being one of those walls. Had our opportunities to crash through, but couldn’t do it. X Kubbed did well and were taken out by Sukface. Relentless Kastpinners…couldn’t get the ball rolling but ended up 2nd in consolation.

    Were we the only club with 3 teams?

    I handed out a lot of 1page Kubb rules papers. Probably could have handed more out.

    Sold 9 sets. 2-4 of those to random people walking by.

    Had a great time, but too busy to get autographs on my cards I had made.

      There were at least 3 Teams that MN Kubb (which is more like Mpls Kubb) could have claimed as it’s own. I’m really looking forward to the Planet Kubb club competition at nationals this summer, although we wouldn’t have been that competitive last weekend.

      The Kastpinners were in a brutal group. Pitch Slap is a couple of solid players (ranked 6 & 7 in our ladder currently) and they went 0-3 for a 4th seed. Brutal Kubb right out of the gate on those pitches…

      Berserker Kubb had five teams. The Ringers, Team Kubboom, Kubb de Grace, The 3 Kubbateers (T3K), and Hangin’ With Mr. Kubber.

      It was awesome seeing so many people want to buy sets. I am hoping you are going to sit out the US Championship or have someone be at a table full-time. Tough to do both. Aaron tried it in 2011 and he will admit it really impacted his game…and probably could have sold more sets.

      Looking back now, I would have liked to see Relentless Kastpinnar put some kubbs back up after the more than a few helicopters from the team they lost to in the group play, I think it was.

    Builder/Player….I’ve got to figure out priorities. Don’t want be like my friend that owes a bike shop but doesn’t have time to bike.

    Sat 7:30 am-8:45 played kubb. 10-4 Made kubb sets.
    Sun 12:30 started working on my kubb pitch( out of town for the holidays)
    1-3 finished cutting 55 sets of kubb. Still working on the kings and waiting for some batons.
    Wed 7:30pm Chaska Kubb practice
    Sat (time to be determined) Chaska kubb practice by the fire.

    My goal is to do something kubb related every night until the Loppet. Most nights will be working on sets, but even if it is tossing a few batons. Chaska guys will be ready :)

    I think this is the group. Ayone know how to contact someone via their youtube account?

    Since Thursday I’ve had two interesting experiences with Kubb. I thought this group would like to hear.

    1. Sold a guy a giant jenga set for Thanksgiving weekend. In the process I showed him my kubb set, gave him a direction sheet and thought I may never see him again. Got an email the next day asking for two kubb sets. He then told me about his search on line and then painted his backyard….before even having a set. He went to youtube and watched some videos. I didn’t ask specifically which ones he watched, but I think I could find out.

    2. Sat morning at 7:25 I started playing Kubb with John (partner at DMK and Spring Grove). We battled it out for over an hour. In the process my dog got off his leash as another dog walked by. The lady was like, “Oh, you guys play kubb too.” I think both of our jaws dropped. We talked to her for a few minutes and found out that her husband and friends put on 3-5 kubb tournaments a year. One on a frozen lake and at least one in Chicago. Trying to get more information from this family, but I believe this is a group that plays by the rules “If you take a king shot and miss and have an extra baton the other team gets a shot to steal the victory by knocking the king down”. I’ve seen a few youtube videos of this. Pretty exciting, but how bad would it be to get all the kubbs down on your oppents half of the pitch with more than 2 batons left…miss the king on the first shot…then hand over the baton and lose the game

      I’d bet that if he’s doing his own tournaments with that rule, there’s a bunch of other weird aspects of their rule set. Probably kubb elimination… I have also met Kubb players outside of our community playing by other rules. It’d be great to “assimilate” even one of these groups.

    Slight change in location for the Chaska Tournament on Nov 3rd. Veteran’s Park in Chaska is the new location
    Let me know if you have questions.
