Kubb & Koffee 3 Recap

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.

It was made even better when Tammy arrived with donuts from Wuollet Bakery!

Mazie and Tyler came along to enjoy some donuts and watch (and even play!) a little Kubb. Tammy played in as well and got a couple of games in on the pitch.

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!

Kubb on!

    Had a great time. Thanks for setting this up. We’ll be switching over the Meetups to Saturdays soon too – so let’s keep throwing!

    I brought my 16 year old son out to play Kubb for our first time and we had a blast. It’s easy to learn and great fun to play. It’s a hip, positive crowd to hang with and we can’t wait for the tournament in February in MPLS…..need to go buy a Kubb set so we can practice more. Thanks everyone for having us out it was a great time.
