the idea girl says

It all started with a simple game of KUBB with Steve from Buffalo New York, USA about a month ago…

 

It’s now becoming a reality here in Fort Erie as a future Tourism Sport Attraction!

 

Harry and I will be at the Fort Erie Friendship Festival to help promote this family game for all of you to play!

 

I’m inviting all my neighbours, friends, Facebook friends, KUBB Canada, Buffalo KUBB and the ohio and desmoines KUBB clubs, Australia, UK and others to join in.

 

Alvin from Happy Jack’s Restaurant on Niagara BLVD has confirmed he is going to host and sponsor this event.

 

I had an “idea” to give out meal saving coupons which Alvin liked and so he’s preparing those for us.  His idea was for us to play the game for FREE but to do a fundraiser for a local charity.

 

I went to talk to Signe at the Town Hall in Fort Erie 2nd Floor Dept – Community Development and Activities Division (I don’t know their exact name…) and we had an hour or so meeting discussing all the things I’d like to see in Fort Erie.  She’s emailed me an application for the Town to suggest my ideas and how I plan to implement them.  I let her know about KUBB and I wanted her to invite all our City Council People to join in the fun too!

 

I had a “feeling” about this game, that it will revitalize our Sports Tourism, as we can add it to our golf courses, cycling tours, and bowling game players.  Curling and Polo Players and our Fort Erie Racetrack attendees will love this game too!

 

It’s easy to play and fun for the whole family so I can see it developing into something Big – competitions with other “Canadians, Americans, UK, Australia and whomever else I can find in Europe that likes to play – we can draw their families to Canada – to visit, go on a holiday, relax, play a few games and enjoy our many other attractions in Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, Niagara on the Lake, our wineries, Niagara Film Fest, and Toronto, CNE, TIFF etc…

 

The sky’s the limit when you use your imagination and take a step out into the future!

True I don’t know if it will succeed, I’m still not sure Steve will make it with the KUBB kits, but i’m hoping it all works out in the end. 😉

 

I’m hoping our KUBB Canada players from Ottawa can join in the fun, along with Buffalo KUBB players and we could have a friendly game of Canada vs USA 🙂

 

I have a charity in mind thanks to Signe and another lady that works there (I forget her name… sigh…)  it’s the Boys n Girls Club!

 

I’ve emailed them asking for them to send volunteers to manage the donations and come along to play the game too. 🙂

Keeping my fingers crossed and praying that the Universe will be with us on this!

 

We are also praying for “nice sunny dry weather” for our Fort Erie Friendship Festival some to god, others to Mohammad and then others to the Universe.. yes three different religions are represented in our prayer time each day down by the niagara river, between 630 and 730 pm.

 

you are welcome to join us in prayer time no matter what faith you are!

We are praying for fort erie’s residents to be prosperous, to bring games and activities to our area to generate those 10,000 jobs plus more for this area and the Niagara Region Ontario Canada!

 

I just want to write a THANK YOU to Flo for letting us do this and believing in this new endeavour!

 

here is a video of how to play KUBB watch it then come and play with your family!

All ages are welcomed. 🙂
