2011 Fall Kubb Klassic

Posted by Chris Hodges on Wednesday, September 28, 2011, In : Tournament 

The 2011 Des Moines Kubb Fall Kubb Klassic was our sophomore year, and by every measure it was a resounding success. We had double the participation of last year and raised more than twice as much money for our sponsored charity, Animal Lifeline of Iowa.


We started Friday night at Felix & Oscar's and had a great time with a lot of our club members attending to mingle with a few of our traveling teams. Grant was awarded his SKAL Championship shirt and we talked shop with Sweden's Sons an...

2011 Summer Kubb Adult League comes to a close

Posted by Chris Hodges on Saturday, September 17, 2011, In : SKAL

Week 7 finishes:

Very competitive games tonight at a venue none of us really fell in love with. The Summer Concert Series at Jasper was great, but unWINEd at Gray's Lake just isn't a good match for us. We had some walk-by traffic and we got a few new players interested in the game, but we couldn't get very close to the event and the wind coming in off the lake was pretty fierce. Next week we're finishing the Summer Kubb Adult League at Cup O' Kryponite, home of the 2010 Fall Kubb Klassic (not to mention our v...

SKAL!!! (Week 5 Results)

Posted by Chris Hodges on Saturday, September 3, 2011, In : SKAL 
Due to a late start and sunset coming earlier and earlier we weren't able to run a full 8-player schedule and had to settle for a series of 4-player scramblers - only made it through 5 rounds, and struggled to get that. Grant continues to dominate with his accuracy on the sticks, and with the change to the three player format at Nationals next year I think he will be a highly sought-after free agent this off season.  With only two weeks remaining, he may just have the 2011 title in the bag......
