Results were as follows:

A Event: first, Lionel Barron from Lacombe; second, Harvey Brink from Bentley; third, Jeff Kamlah from Bentley; and in fourth, Don Olson from Sylvan Lake.

B Event: first, Lyle Lorenz from Lacombe; second, Ralph Scarlett from Bentley; third, Gord Mydland from Bentley; and fourth, John Stol from Lacombe.

C Event: first, Walter Lloyd from Bentley; second, Doug Carritt from Red Deer; third, Merlyn Wilson from Bentley; and fourth, Norm Crossman from Bentley.

Winner of the skins games was Gary Musylouski from Bentley, with Tim Feader from Bentley second.
