Well, an idea has been generating for a few months about the possibility of bringing back the U.S. Midwest Kubb Championship. As some of you know, the Eau Claire Tournament started in 2007. In 2008 and 2009, it was called the U.S. Midwest Kubb Championship. Then in 2010, it turned into the U.S. Championship. Well, it was time to bring back the Midwest Championship and give another big one for teams to play in. In addition, it will allow clubs/communities that are hosting the tournament to get more publicity about the tournament, as the U.S. Midwest Kubb Championship has a nice ring to it, right? And, when new locations are released in advance, those tournaments/communities can promote the fact that they are hosting the Midwest Championship to create more energy for their tournament.
These are the things that we know right now: - It will rotate to a new city every year. Rockford will host it in 2013. The date is May 4th. - The U.S. Midwest Kubb Championship will require at least three players on a team. So, no player may throw more than two batons. - The 2014 location should be released in the next couple months. - If a tournament has a unique setting/tournament system, they will be able to keep that.
Here is the old logo. Will it stay the same? Will it be changed? You'll find out soon.
