This morning I got up bright and early for Kubb & Koffee 3! Today’s Kubb & Koffee was a little different than the first two. We put the word out a lot broader and invited a lot of first time Kubb players. It was a true Friendly. But since this is Kubb & Koffee, the first thing I do is make my coffee. My trusty Chemex got me a delicious thermos of estate coffee to go.
I arrived at Central Park in St. Anthony Village at 7:10 am, shortly before sunrise. I got to watch the sun come up while I waited for enough light to hit the fields so I could stake out the pitches.
The sun started coming up at 7:20am and by 7:35am I was joined by Garrick and his cousin Dalton. We got two pitches setup using the awesome Des Moines Kubb QuickPitch (Thanks Dobbie!).
A couple hours later we had a nice sun warming things up and people keeping both pitches running all morning. It was a great time! If my count is right we had 14 people come by and throw some wood with us.
We wrapped up about 11:30a after 4 hours of great October Kubb. I gave Eric Goplin and Cole Vyren of Tad Kubbler a ride home and Eric proved that an adult male can actually fit in the back of a Mini Cooper!
This is likely our last Kubb & Koffee of 2012 and I think everyone had a great time! Next time I will be more clear though that people don’t have to show up at 7:30a, that is just when we start. I’m guessing a couple of folks didn’t come because they thought they had to be there right at 7:30a. Ooops!
