All club members had two or three matches, and the matches ranged from two to five minutes.

Winning gold medals were Odin Bartsch, Kyle Qualtieri and Dillon Hack. Silver medals winners were Joseph Albert, Kaydon Booth, Brae Booth, Justin Juurlink and Kaeden Rendek. Dylan Armitage and Brandon Hills each won bronze medals.

Most of the competitors will end the year with a tournament in Invermere.
