Northern Classic returns to Prince Albert

Results are in from Prince Albert's new venue the Rock and Iron sports bar, where 32 men and 11 women played four events on September 28.

Women's champ is youth star Rianna December (Warman) who defeated Georgina Ratt (Stanley Mission) in the final. That's back-to-back titles in September for Rianna as she gears up for her trip to the World Masters.

In doubles, Steve teamed up with Danny Mckenzie (Stanley Mission) to win the men's event. Melanie Thomas of Chitek Lake and Laurie Kitzul of Saskatoon are your women's winners.

North Battleford: new home of the Saskatchewan Open

A mainstay of the NDFC darts tour since the 1980s, the Saskatchewan Open was played in North Battleford for the first time in its history on the weekend of September 20-22, and it was a great success. The spacious Tropical Inn venue was a big hit.

Men's singles winner was Rob Mills (AB) who defeated SK's top-ranked man Steve Kristjansson in the final.

Provincials downsizing

It was announced that the SDA Provincial Championships will now take place over a two-day weekend in late March or early April. The number of entries to Provincials has been declining for years and doesn't really justify a full three-day event any longer. This will also reduce costs to the host zone and to players travelling for the event.

Ashtin Bear claimed his fourth Provincial Championship when Steve conceded the playoff match.
