JOIN THE KUBBOLUTION
The easiest way to get in on the kubb revolution would be to get yourself a kubb set, find a friend or few, and follow the rules printed with this article. Log on to the Wisconsin Kubb web site at www.wisconsinkubb.com for information on where to get your hands on a kubb set and on upcoming tournaments and game days. You could also join a kubb club like the Eau Claire Berserkers.
As kubb in Eau Claire takes on an aspect of social change, your experience won’t be complete until you put your kubb skills to good use. Although Eric has plenty of volunteers for the nationals (thanks to the Eastside Hill Neighborhood Association), Habitat could use some help for their tourney and with crafting the kubb sets.
As more people discover the charms of this simple yet complex game, Anderson hopes the Valley community will become even more closely knit and coherent, and maybe even do some good along the way. Even with the exponential success kubb has already enjoyed here in a few short years, Anderson believes this is just the beginning. “I think to myself, where does this stop? And I don’t know, maybe it just keeps growing.”
