This year the Canadian National Kubb Championship will be held on September 16, 2017 at Strathcona Park in Ottawa.
Rules for the tournament can be found HERE.
Once again this year will be a 2 vs 2 team tournament. We will have 4 rounds to determine the top 8 teams to move on to the final brackets. Each qualifying round will consist of a best 2-of-3 matches and will have a total time limit of 45 minutes.
The final brackets (Top 8 teams) will be elimination brackets and will also be best 2-of-3 matches with 1 hour time limits on the Quarter Finals, 1 hour time limit on the Semi-Finals, 1 hour time limit for the consolation (3rd place) bracket and no time limit on the Final matchup.

**In the event of time running out, a new method of determining a winner of the match will be used. Once time has expired, the team that threw second in the match will be able to complete a turn. On the next turn, the throwing team will remove one kubb from play and throw their batons. On the next turn (opposing teams throw), they too will remove one kubb from play and complete their turn. This will go back and forth until a king has been hit.
In the end, the decision of the judges will be final on all calls.
