SKAL!!! Week 6 Results

Posted by Josh Feathers on Sunday, May 19, 2013, In : SKAL 


fire the weather forecasters. Today was scheduled to be a 70% chance of thunderstorms and it turned out to be sunny, high 70's, and windy as heck. This made for some longer than normal games, and some less than tight groups in the field. A day where choosing side over throwing first came up in most games. We had great turnout with 7 players, and afterward our own Steve Feathers taught all the Girl Scouts who reserved the shelter near us how to play!

1. Dobbie : 11

SKAL!!! (Week 4 Results)

Posted by Chris Hodges on Monday, April 29, 2013, In : SKAL 


What a beautiful day to play some Kubb in the park! The nice weather brought out quite a few passers-by that were interested in learning about the game. We love sharing the game!

We're halfway through the season, and it's really starting to look like a three horse race with Doug, Grant, and Steve within 5 points of each other and a dozen points ahead of the pack...

SKAL!!! (Week 2 Results)

Posted by Chris Hodges on Sunday, April 14, 2013, In : SKAL 


A very gusty day in the park didn't keep us from another successful week of SKAL! With 9 players we play the largest schedule allowed by rule (9 rounds), as if we hit 10 players we split into two schedules with a playoff. 9 twenty minute rounds is a three-hour play time, and it felt a little long towards the end! The wind was brutal, changing speed and direction without notice, and everybody struggled to string together 8m hits. All-in-all, an afternoon of Kubb in the park is nothing to compl...

SKAL!!! (Week 1 Results)

Posted by Chris Hodges on Sunday, April 7, 2013, In : SKAL 


The season kicked off at Tower park on a warm (if somewhat overcast and breezy) Spring day.  Grant and Doug both entered the fourth round undefeated, giving up only a single base kubb apiece in the first three rounds. They continued a shootout for the rest of the afternoon, facing off in the 7th and final round with a half of a game separating them. In the end Grant showed why he carries the #1 tag, but we've got to hand it to Doug - he hasn't thrown a baton in months but he showed up and pla...

S.K.A.L Final Results (and thoughts for next year)

Posted by Jaime Feathers on Monday, May 28, 2012, In : SKAL 
I wanted to put the finalization on this years' Spring Kubb Adult League. Thank you to all 11 different participants this year, especially the new league faces, including Brian and Johnny Walker.

In the final week a tie emerged between the two Feathers boys. Both sought club champion, but in the end, with the amount of ties and the use of "math", Josh Feathers edged out Steve for SKAL champ.

The Spring Kubb Adult League is the only event that we do to help with club operating costs. Your member...

2011 Summer Kubb Adult League comes to a close

Posted by Chris Hodges on Saturday, September 17, 2011, In : SKAL 
SKAL 2011 came to a close much like the 2011 U.S. National Championship - later (and darker) than anticipated. Grant Scott emerged the Champion with 4 weekly wins. I came in second place without a single weekly win, and Dobbie placed third with two wins. The only week that wasn't won by Grant or Dobbie came in week two when Dobbie was out of town and my Dad hit a hot streak. We learned a lot in this inaugural season, and will put those lessons to good use in SKAL Season 2!

Week 7 finishes:

SKAL!!! (Week 6 Results)

Posted by Josh Feathers on Saturday, September 10, 2011, In : SKAL 
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......

SKAL!!! (Week 3 Results)

Posted by Chris Hodges on Friday, August 19, 2011, In : SKAL 
Fun night in the rain! Getting a little wet doesn't stop the DMK crew from enjoying a few drinks & tossing some lumber, and 7 members showed up to play in week 3 of the Summer Scrambler Series. I jumped out to an early lead until the last game when Grant & I lost to Dobbie 5-0 in a dramatic finish, overtaking my half-game advantage.

One footnote: Despite working most of last winter to collect and assemble a comprehensive U.S. Nationals Kubb Ruleset Dobbie & I both violated them in a single bat...

SKAL!!! (Week 2 Results)

Posted by Chris Hodges on Friday, August 12, 2011, In : SKAL 

My dad came into town from California and made a big splash by winning the weekly scrambler! His field kubb groups were only so-so, but his baton play was good enough to secure victory for his team 6 times out of 7, his only loss coming when  the 2nd and 3rd place finishers teamed up against him (Grant and myself). Well done!

Weekly standings:

Mark: 11
Grant: 10
Chris: 9
Miggy: 8
Tony: 7
Jon: 6
Jerry: 5
