This year the Ringers are playing as many tournaments as possible in our ideal team makeup of Sy, Aaron & Dave. We are playing for the US Team Cup and are leading the cup at this time. Playing as a three generation team (we also all live together) is no small task and presents many challenges. We have been working on the Kubb mantra - unites and creates peace - as a way to make sure that when we play Kubb we are truly having fun. I am using this season as an opportunity to exercise leadership and am testing several team theories as we play. Not even halfway through the season I can tell you this: We have not won by sheer skill and accuracy, we have won by "out-teaming" our opponents using mutual support, clear roles and the absence of negativity. We will never underestimate our opponent's ability to choke, and when they do, we'll get just lucky enough to nudge them into the fire.
