2014 in Review

Well it’s 2015 and that means it’s time to take a look back at the past year. A lot happened in 2014 for Kalamazoo Kubb.

First, and maybe most importantly, we received a Steven R. Anderson Kubb Set Grant, which allowed us to expand kubb within our group. We now had the same sets that tournaments were using so we were practicing with the right stuff. It allowed us to keep kubb sets in our trunk, ensuring there was always a set available for impromptu games. The grant really allowed us to play more kubb, with more people. Thanks, USA Kubb!

The next big event was the U.S. National Kubb Championship. It was the first time Kalamazoo Kubb had sent a team, and The Settlers of Baton made a surprisingly good run. Christopher Jones even wrote up a post on his blog recapping the tournament.

After returning from nationals, Kalamazoo Kubb started planning for the future. It was time to grow the club. A lot of wheels were put into motion, including the creation of a new identity, a more robust social presence on Twitter and Facebook and the first official Kalamazoo Kubb event.

That first event was our KUBBQ. This was a casual barbecue and kubb friendlies event in a local park. Check out our recap to learn more and see some photos.

This past year was great, and we’re looking forward to a lot of exciting things in 2015. Happy New Year!
