The Draw: An Eau Claire Look Inside Groups Z and ZZ

July 2, 2015
What a U.S. Championship Team Draw last Saturday. As usual, the Team Draw gave us a variety of story lines and possible story lines that are endless. This year, the Draw was cruel for many of the top Eau Claire teams.

What are the easy story lines that we know for sure?

Well, Settlers of Baton (Kalamzoo and Minneapolis) lost to Kubb’d (Des Moines and Taylor Falls) 1-2 last year in the round of 32, and there were 10 kubbs in play in Game 3. This year, they play their last group play match agai...

The Oasis ... Goodbye Old Friend

June 26, 2015
I don’t remember the first time I played kubb at The Oasis. But I will always remember the last time I played kubb at The Oasis. Last night, The Oasis hosted its last kubb matches. The invite was less than 24 hours before the last night of kubb there. It was four on four, then soon, six on six, with two little kids running around…we would have not had it any other way. Last night, I hit my first throw, an 8 meter throw from just inside the right sideline and knocking back the middle kubb....

Inkastare Training Tip 12 - Work the baseline (Remember, groups of kubbs are like snowflakes)

June 1, 2015
Sometimes the best angle to inkast is not tight along the sideline. If you throw the kubb across your body so that your arm is along the sideline, but you are aiming further inside the sideline (left for right handed players), it is more difficult to cut the kubb back to the right. Also, perhaps your group is set up so that to get it in a preferred spot has high risk if you are tight along the sideline. Do not limit yourself to stand always along the sideline. Be careful though. If you...

Are Three Batons In A Row Too Many?

May 22, 2015
After playing and watching a whole lot of kubb events the past few weeks, I have been doing some thinking about team size the past week.

It is no secret out there that I really like teams of three or more. At the same time, I 100 percent realize that not all U.S. tournaments can currently host tournaments with a minimum of three or more players on a team. Local interest, distance, number of tournaments, and other things prohibit some tournaments from requiring more than two people on a team. ...

We built it...a month in the life of kubb in Eau Claire, WI

May 12, 2015
It is amazing what we have all built...the dozens of us all over the U.S., but mostly in the Upper Midwest, over the past several years. I feel like I am in the middle of a four-week kubb fantasy dream right now. If you live in Eau Claire or the surrounding area, the kubb life is absolutely amazing...and considering all the hard work we have all done, we deserve it, and I am going to enjoy it.

Let me explain...

"Horizontal"

April 27, 2015
On Saturday, I was fortunate enough to be able to wake up and take a drive 20 minutes north to Chippewa Falls to play in the Inaugural Leinenkugals Kubb Championship hosted by Kubb Farm. Yes, we are living the kubb dream in Wisconsin's Chippewa Valley.

I was hearing the word helicopter a lot throughout the morning. I heard it as a verb, noun, and adjective. I heard it next to me, I heard it from a distance, and I heard it out of my mouth. In the past I have felt this way once and awhile, but a...
