Championship Week Day 6, 7, and 8

Posted by Josh Feathers on Sunday, July 14, 2013, In : Nationals 
Day 6:
Saturday. The big day. The party. Sprinkles in the morning, cloudy in the afternoon, and enough wind to keep the pesky bugs away. Perfect kubb weather. The day started as it had for years before, some warmups, a captains meeting, some swag purchases and a general milling about meeting old friends and learning new names. That is what the round robins are for. Saturday had a Sunday matchup atmosphere for two teams. KingPin and Leinenkubbels Light was a round robin match that could have ea...

Championship Week 2013: Day 5

Sardines. That's what we were. And we will blame JP Larson. That's how we spent the hour and a half drive to Eau Claire this morning. But we did it for the cause. Eau Claire had a waiting list (yes, a WAITING LIST) for kubb sets, and we decided to help a friend and deliver some much needed sets to the Local Store. The Subaru was low, and six sets somehow fit with all our stuff. Slightly uncomfortable, we trekked over to the big EAU.


(I think someone owes the girls a beer (hint: It's JP)

We drov...

Championship Week 2013: Day 4

Breakfast, coffee, Hockey Giant, Ikea. That's how you start a morning in the Twin Cities. When you play beer league it goes without saying that you are going to stop at Hockey Giant and browse. Swag, sticks, skates, gear bags, and even hockey goals. The boys looked at it all. We bought nothing, but looked at everything, and the only shirts we really wanted were sold out. Stupid hockey.

(Tony trying on some $1,500.00 pads.)

Next was Ikea. What a workout! I felt like we walked 5 miles. That place...

Championship Week 2013: Day 3

We got off to a bright and early start heading north on I-35. Somehow, we were able to fit all our stuff into the back of the Subaru. I would have lost the bet if any one would have said "10 bucks says we can fit it all in the back of the Subaru." Luckily, nobody said that, because I would have lost. It fit. Gas saved: $50.00 a couple. BAM!

Dexter rode with us for half the trip. Dexter is Tony and Amy's little dog, and he was excited to be a part of our trip. Normally, Dexter drools everywhere...

Championship Week 2013: Day 2

Posted by Josh Feathers on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, In : Nationals 
Today was all about the swag. I got a sneak peek at the R2-Kubb2 shirts and they are pretty badass. I also got the first proof on the Fall Kubb Klassic shirts and we intend to release the design shortly after Nationals. I cannot say enough about this year's design; I think it is top 1 or 2 that we have done so far. Mary keeps finding ways to kill it on the Fall tournament shirts. Additionally, Jaime and I made some shirts today using some pretty high quality transfer paper. And I had to choos...

Championship Week Begins

Posted by Josh Feathers on Monday, July 8, 2013, In : Nationals 
As some of you know, and more will find out, I did a daily blog last year all during Championship Week. You can see last year's daily blog right here, and it's actually fun to look back and see all the stuff we did. Some may know that we generally go up early and stay late for the U.S. National Kubb Championship. It just seems appropriate to make one of the biggest kubb parties in the country a week-long event. There are plenty of breweries to hit along the way. Jaime and I coordinate an annu...
