Since the first tournament in 2007, the Championship has been a fundraiser. The U.S. National Kubb Championship is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and we continue to give some of our proceeds to charities. In addition, as you can read below, the U.S. Championship hosts an outreach program that includes introducing and promoting kubb in the Eau Claire area and also around the county.

Steve Anderson Kubb Set Program
- 2018 application

In memory of Steve Anderson, the U.S. National Kubb Championship named the Kubb Set Program in honor of him. The goal with the Steve Anderson Kubb Set Program is to provide free kubb sets in communities where kubb is not currently played and/or introduce it to new population groups. Applications are available in the fall and due by December 31st.

In 1945, Steve Anderson was born in Rockford, Illinois to two Swedish immigrants. Steve died in 2013 at the age of 67. Steve served our country in the U.S. Navy. Among Steve's numerous passions was kubb, specifically volunteering.

Steve played on the kubb teams Crooked Lake Trolls, The Farfars, and Team New Milford. In 2012, he received his five-year button at the U.S. Championship. He was a referee at the 2013 U.S. Championship. He always made sure he was in the front row of the bleachers during the Championship Final.

In July 2006, Steve gave his son Eric and Eric's wife Erin a kubb set after they returned from a year in Sweden. Hearing about the game from Eric and Erin's travels, he thought it would be a great gift when they returned. In January 2007, Eric and Erin moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin. That summer they started the first open tournament in the U.S., and that tournament would become the U.S. National Kubb Championship, and Eau Claire, WI would soon become the Kubb Capital of North America.

There would not be kubb as it is today in Eau Claire, WI if it was not for that first kubb set. The Rockford, IL and Dallas, WI tournaments and Kubbnation Magazine were started from that first kubb set as well. All waterfalls start with a drop of water. The kubb waterfall in Eau Claire started with Steve's gift to Eric and Erin. As it was with many things he did, Steve left a deep footprint.

Above is the brief story of what one kubb set can do. It can bring people together. It can create a culture in a community. It can raise money for charities. It builds things and creates memories for us all. It can do so many things. Yes, we believe in the saying "Kubb unites people and creates peace on Earth", and we also believe in the power of even just one kubb set.

We love you Steve. Thank you for our first kubb set and so much more.
