ROCKTON, Ill. — Once again the Screw City Kubb Klassic is back for the 2019 kubb season. This will mark the tenth edition of the tournament, making it one of the longest running tournaments in the United States. The tournament director is the president of Kubb United, Evan Fitzgerald. This tournament uses two person minimum teams, eight rounds of the Klassic system, and will be played with the Kubb United Rules for Open Play. This year, they will be using painted baselines with string for sidelines and the midline. Last year, the 30 team tournament was won by Team Knockerhead (Josh Feathers, Chris Hodges). This year’s tournament is expected to bring more than 30 teams, with awards for the top three teams in the championship bracket and the top two teams in the consolation A and B brackets. The tournament also moves to a new park called Hononegah Park in Rockton.
There will be a pre-tournament meet-up at Evan Fitzgerald’s House on Friday May 10 at 6 p.m. Pizza will be provided and kubb and mega-mölkky will be set up for everyone to enjoy. There is a $40 fee for this year’s tournament, with all remaining proceeds going to Gigi’s Playhouse-Down Syndrome Achievement Center.
