We here at Kubb Farm are seriously dedicated to spreading the game of kubb far and wide. Initially, it seemed that the best way to do that was through making sure people had access to high quality sets to buy for their personal use. After many years of trying this, we discovered that selling sets was not achieving this goal. What to do? We have donated sets to schools and even to the City of Eau Claire (Kubb Capital of North America), but those are only available to certain groups. How could we provide a set to anyone who wants it?  As avid geocachers, we were used to finding cool things in ordinary, public spaces. As we visited our many parks in and around Eau Claire, we often found ourselves wondering: wouldn't it be cool to play kubb here? If only we had a set! And thus, the concept of Kubbcache was born. It's that simple: hide a kubb set in or near an awesome place to play. After working with friends and family on a concept and design, we chose our first location: the site of the 2009 US National Kubb Championship. Hidden in plain sight and disguised as a fully functional little free library, this kubb set is used daily by a variety of people and has now gone months without a missing piece or shin busting incident. We will be expanding this concept in 2017 throughout the Chippewa Valley and hope the idea catches on globally. Please contact us for details on how to find a kubbcache or how to have one set up in your favorite spot.
