Nova Scotia Championships

The 2014 Provincial Championships were a success with a good turnout of pullers and plenty of exciting action on the table. Triple elimination proved beneficial to some and disaster to others as fatigue wore many down.

The Bayers brothers proved yet again that they are the ones to beat winning 3 of the 4 classes they entered. Only the "Over 198lb" class proved to be their undoing as Shawn Ross took the large class and Mark MacPhail finished second
