Just read Eric's blog about team names. I'm one of those who thinks of Kubb as a sport and follow it like most people follow the NFL or Major League Baseball. Thanks

The Group that has and will run the Winter Tournament in Minneapolis is bringing three Teams.

"Kubb Shot J.R?" is the 3 guys who played as Tad Kubbler in nationals this year, plus two guys who played with me on Bjork Bjork Bjork and one other player.

"Cynthia Plaster Inkastare" is the 3 guys who most recently played as John Kubber Mellencamp, plus 3 other friends of ours, one of which I played with in Nationals WAY back in 2009.

"Skullkubbery" is another bunch of friends of ours who are looking forward to playing some fun kubb.

I have been drafted to the "Kubbchucks" for this Tournament and we're rounding out our team with a couple of players from Des Moines.

See you guys Saturday.

Thanks for the info. Who are the players from Des Moines?

That's a question for garrickvanburen, but I'm fairly certain none of them post to this site.

I should also mention that "Kubb Shot J.R?" seemed pretty dedicated to defending their Dallas Oktoberfest 2011 Champions title.

Hey Dano. Thanks for being such a big fan of kubb. I cannot give you too much information on individual names, as I don't have it. However, the things I do know.

There are three Berserker Kubb teams. They are:
Sweden's Amateur Ringers - combination of Sweden's Sons (myself and Paul Mullen), The Ringers (you know these guys, right?), and Amateur Hour (3 EC, 2 CF, 1 RF). This  is actually the six players we took down to Madison looking for some three-person team action. And Paul Mullen played with AH at the US (David Smith and the newly engaged Adam Larson)
Team Kubboom - they have some new players for this one. Pat and Scott from their US team and they played in DM. The Man of Mystry and El Jefe are not able to make it. They are throwing in a neighbor that lives right behind them, his dad (I think), and two of Pat's kids (one is in 4th, and the other is in 1st, I think).
Kubb de Grace - This is five players from EC/CF and then my stepdad from Rockford, IL, again, all Berserkers. They have actually finished decently high in the past in Dallas and other tournaments (both in the regular bracket and consolation bracket) and Josh Miller who teamed up with myself and won the CV H4H tournament two years ago. I think Josh and Dave Ellringer teamed up last year and won the Dallas Consolation. They are a combination of Kubb de Grace and Skaal from the US Championship, then with my stepdad from The Farfars.  He usually plays with my dad on that team.

The top four "seeds" if you will, will be Big Red Machine from Appleton (Kubb Snipers and crew), Kubb Shot JR? (talked about below), Sixpack (combination of a DM team, I think with Chris  Hodges (Inkubbus, Los Padres, and now Team Knockerheads) as their inkastare and Wolfpack from the Twin Cities area), and Steve and the Shufflers from DM. I am not sure who all is on that team, but Josh Feathers will be tossing the kubbs, and there is good talent on that team as well These four teams will be divided up in the four pods of play. We are going to do something very different for this tournament, and I will be posting that later today on the tournament page on the wisconsinkubb website.

There are two local teams, which is really cool. Dallas is really small, and people come and watch, and so they signed up as well. I think all 12+ of them are first time players, and I don't have any names for you on that. Pitch Wizards are a real new team to the kubb landscape, but they are now traveling everywhere. Their inkastare exploded over the past couple months, or at least that is what I saw a couple times down in DM. They make these really cool snack food called Reallygoods (an official snack food of the US Championship). Then, toss in Rhymes with Tube from Madison, and I think they are picking up some long lost cousin from this part of the state as well. David and his crew have been along for a long time and they are always a tough/tight game and make it a lot of fun.

I hope that helps.

Thank you both for the scouting report!! It,s on my list to get out to your area for a tournament someday. In the meantime I'm working on my game and enjoying the online discussions and videos. Speaking of videos I'm hoping for some on the Dallas tourney. Should be fun to see the players stepping up to the line one at a time with a single baton to throw. Thanks to all of you who take the time to produce and post the videos.
