Devon 99
Devon - 14th August 1999

ruler

The fourth urg meet, held at Sacha's delectable home in South Devon, took place on Saturday, August 14th 1999, and, despite the miserable predictions from the Met. Office, the weather was glorious, or at least it was in this part of the world.

As ususal, clan cormaic were the last to arrive, and so, there is not much of a report, but the photos, taken by Maurice Larcombe, do a marvellous job of conveying the spirit of the meet. In fact, the photos are so good, I've not been able to whittle them down to just 8 or 10 of the best ones, so you'll have to excuse the time it takes to load this page
