Our 48 Team National Championships were concluded on Thursday, April 5th with the husband & wife team of Rae & Tom Campbell of the St. Vital Curling Club in Winnipeg, MB defeating 3 time Canadian champion, Tim Smith with new partner Chris Peiper of Armstrong, BC to become the 2018 Canadian Stick Curling Champions.
24 Alberta teams competed with 2018 Alberta Stick Curling Champions, Ryan Meyers & Dennis Fitzerald finishing in 4th place. They were defeated by 3-time Canadian champion John Campbell and partner Derrell Sears of Armstrong, BC in the bronze medal game. Unfortunately, it was déjà vu for Meyers & Fitzgerald of Sturgeon County, as they lost the 2014 final in St. Albert to the Armstrong, BC team of John Campbell & Tim Smith.
We want to Thank the many volunteers and community sponsors for making this event a huge success!
