The Ladies Izzard Smith Ryesomes competition took place on Thursday 11th April with 14 pairs taking part. The draw for partners was made at the Ladies Dinner the night before at which the ladies enjoyed a fun evening with entertainment by local magician Bertie Pearce who baffled all the ladies with his quick witty trickery. The competition was delayed by a couple of hours on the Thursday morning due to fog but thankfully this lifted with all ladies going out once it had cleared.
