This is not a question, sorry. I’m having trouble getting on The Pitch at work and wanted to get this out there. Like a lot of you, I cannot contain my excitement for this weekend. It’s hard to focus at work and time seems to have crawled to a complete stop. I’m trying to enjoy this as part of the process too, but I’m dying to just play. One thing before it all gets started - you guys are awesome. How could I have known what was about to happen when I went to Eau Claire in 2009 not really knowing the rules and having never seen an Old Time Games set? While strategy and styles of play have changed over the years, one thing has remained the same all along – the Kubb Community’s commitment to the game of kubb and it’s growth here in the Midwest. Kubb has become a way to build stronger neighborhoods, better communities, and bridge cultural divides. Amazing. Everyone wants to knock that king over on Sunday, but I’m amazed that for so many people winning comes second to seeing kubb grow. This community is one that will teach the game at the drop of a hat to kid who may never play again just because. Who knows where this game will go in the next five or ten years, but I’m thrilled to be a part of it. The best of luck to everyone tomorrow. I’m truly looking forward to seeing you all. My team could finish 76th and I wouldn’t care, just being in Eau Claire for the Nationals is all I need.
