Bamsey and Lee take 3-Positional titles
David Phelps was crowned Welsh Champion on Sunday. Shooting in tough winds, he managed 610.3, with runner up Fred Brown on 608.3 and Sian Corish taking third with 607.9. Andrew Burgess gets an honourable mention as the only other person to crack 600 – with a dead even 600.0, testament to the difficulty of the conditions.
In the Men’s 3×40, Mike Bamsey led the way with 1148. Finn Ryley was runner up on 1120, and Sam Harris in third on 1099. In the final however, Richard Hemingway – qualifying in fourth – held his nerve to climb to second place behind Bamsey.
In the Women’s 3×20, Sian Corish led Sharon Lee 560 to 557, but in the final traded places, with Sharon taking the Open title.
