URG Meet, Landscove, Devon
August 31st, 2002


The only meet for this year took place at Hill House Nursery at Landscove, near Ashburton in the county of Devon, the home of long-time urgler, Sacha and her husband Ray. Once again, the weather for this Devon meet was absolutely superb, with warm sunshine and a cerulean sky.
