Experience proved out in a close final as Jack Smart led his Calgary team to a 7-6 win over fellow Calgarian Emer Stang and a repeat Alberta Provincial Championship at the Garrison CC in Calgary this weekend.

Team Smart, with Team Canada squad member Bruno Yizek at 3rd, Anne Hibberd at 2nd and Bridget Wilson at lead went 3-0 in the round robin and then easily disposed of Edmonton's Team Nuspl in the semi-final.

Two Edmonton teams and two Calgary teams competed in the three day event notable for a significant increase in the skills shown and the closeness of many of the games since last year's championship. For team rosters and results CLICK HERE
