“We’re really excited to finally bring tournament kubb to Pennsylvania! This is the first tournament of its kind in the state, and so far we’re really excited by the response that we’ve received. There are players and teams from eight states registered so far and there are a lot of players that are going to be playing in their first kubb tournament here. Thanks to our great sponsors, Country Kubb and Kubb On, we’re looking forward to a great day of kubb!” —Bob Hickes
