When setting up a kubb pitch, how do you measure and make sure it is relatively square (ok...rectangular)?  

I have some string that is knotted to the two lengths (8m/5m) but squaring it up is sometimes difficult.  What are your tricks and techniques?

By having a third string who is 9,43m you get the diagonal wich makes the pitch 90 degrees in the corners = the perfect pitch!

4 meters are 13,3 batons length, 5 meters are 16,6. To square it right, the diagonals should match with the King in center. You can measure the length of a baton with your favourite kubbing shoes, and then step up the pitch.

One simple option is the "Pitch Wizard" kubb tool that utilizes geometry and ease to map out the perfect pitch in minimal steps. This compact device stores itself on a compact, handy reel that tucks neatly into your kubb bag, ready to unwind for your next match, just like you do! Made from Kevlar, this design minimizes the stretch/tolerance found in most string/line devices. Currently available from Kettle Moraine Kubb (.com) for $18.99, with a video coming soon to show you just how simple and accurate this tool has become.
A tournament version is also available, made from vinyl-coated aircraft cable, for $58.99.
Of course, you can always walk-off the sides, set the kubbs, and start throwing wood!!
