HUMBOLDT, Sask. — Pierre Charette, from Buckingham, Que., defeated Glenn Howard, from Coldwater, Ont., 8-7 to win the 2003 National Grand Slam of Curling title.

Charette, brothers Martin and Michel Ferland and Marco Berthelot also upset Edmonton’s Kevin Martin 7-5 earlier in the day, ending Martin’s quest to sweep the Grand Slam of Curling titles this season.

The Charette team lead by three points early and despite a late rally by Howard, the Quebec rink held on to win their first Grand Slam title.
