Kubb United and Gorilly Goods are partnering with the Stoughton Kubb Club, the Madison Kubb Club, the Kettle Moraine Kubb Club and Stateline Kubb to bring you the Cheddar Curtain Tour. It's a competition for all kubb players who play in any of the following five kubb tournaments in the Illinois/Wisconsin state border area. All players are entered automatically if they play in any of the five tournaments. There is no cost to enter and there are no requirements for eligibility. We will be giving out prizes for the top scoring individuals, teams and youth (14 & under).
Starting in Rockford, IL, in May and ending in Hartford, WI, in September, the Cheddar Curtain Tour will be a kubb competition for all. Each individual and team earns points at each tournament based on how they perform and the standings are listed below. You are not required to play with the same teammates in each tournament. If you have different teammates in any tournaments, you will just be listed in the team competition multiple times.

What is the Cheddar Curtain? The border separating Wisconsin and Illinois may just seem like a dark line on a map to some, but to many residents of both states it is a philosophical and cultural divide known as the Cheddar Curtain. Arguably not as divisive as the original Iron Curtain, it delineates a shift from the pastoral farmlands of Illinois to the dairy country of Wisconsin. Once visitors have crossed the Cheddar Curtain, their paths are bound to intersect with a cheese product eventually.
