For the third time in four yearsÂ Gwynfa Camera Club has won the Stanley Chell Cup.
It was a very tense affair with the result in doubt until the very end. Both Gwynfa & Tenby scored a maximum of 40 in the first two rounds. Both clubs were still level (on 58 points) after three rounds. The final round provided a tense finish with Gwynfa scoring 19 and holding their collective breath until the Tenby score of 18 was announced. The final top three places were:
1st place – Gwynfa – 77 points (20 – 20 – 18 – 19)
2nd place – Tenby – 76 points (20 – 20 – 18 – 18)
3rd place – Inn Focus – 72 points (18 – 17 – 17 – 20)
