Following the recent spell of warm sunny weather we had high expectations for our trip to Whitby and had thoughts of paddling in the sea! In the end however it turned out to be wet and windy, just as well really since most of the day would be spent inside the lovely Pavillion ballroom. We were only a small contingent, Dawn and Andy, Dennis and Sue and Craig and Lydia for whom it was their first outing together at this event.
The adult events seemed to have the highest entries of the day, unusually, and all of our couples had several rounds in each of their events. Whilst we may have been few in number, it did not diminish our haul of trophies. Craig and Lydia had an exceptional day making all five of their finals, taking three 4th places, one 3rd place and a terrific 2nd place in the the under 35 ballroom event. Dawn and Andy took three 1st places, a 2nd and a 5th in the open Salsa event (a new addition this year). Dennis and Sue had two 2nd places a 3rd and a 4th with some particularly good results in the open events.
Following the days activities we ended with our traditional visit to the Magpie Cafe for fish and chips, some might say the best bit of the day! Well done to everyone involved, we hope Daventry proves to be as sucessful in a couple of weeks time.
