The 26th Bunnock World Championship in Macklin could not have ended on a higher note after an emotional win by one of the tournament’s long-time organizers.

This year’s Bunnock World Championship was held on Aug. 3-5, and the games were played on Aug. 4-5 at the bunnock grounds at Macklin Lake Regional Park. A total of 320 teams enter the popular tournament each year and, for those who do not know, every team has four members.

After a hard fought two days, the Rudolph (Rudy) Stang team won the tournament defeating the Vince Flewell team two games to none in the best-of-three final. The winning team included Rudy and Dylan Stang from Macklin, along with Rudy’s children Brian Stang and Lisa Holst from Saskatoon.
