As you all know I don't write meet reports for the excellent reason that
I am entirely useless at such things. However...

But there is no way *this* meet is going to pass unreported [I am told
it was the biggest meet ever outside a major event] so as with the 'CCDE
Meet Under The Trees' I'm dropping in a cast list and a few random
moments to which I hope many of you will add some detail and memories of
your own. Anyone with some substantial posts to add will be particularly
smiled upon. It'll be a co-operative effort, except for Leo's bit
because he has promised to do a proper one at some point...[g]

The weather was lousy so thank you all for turning out in large numbers
to make a great meet. I hope everyone enjoyed it, even if it was a bit
of a squeeze :}

It was a nice combination of old and new faces, some I knew well and
some I had never met - exactly what I was hoping for, and as ever I wish
I had had more time to speak to each of you.
Many photographs were taken, Hamster's first on line:

but more to come shortly I hope :]

Random memories...Gideon the climbing frame, grown men begging for mercy
faced with little girls force feeding them spekkies [nasty vile
marshmallow things from .nl], mpk smiling occasionally, Paul Rood
turning supermodel :p, Tony Finch with marshmallows in his ears, Orjan
and Carmilla travelling for *hours* to get there due to train problems,
labels being abused outrageously, Arwen continuing her campaign to
convert the UK to kruisdrop [nice stuff actually:], gadget geeking,
people waving 6Gb MP3 players [spit spit], Peter and Julie arriving from
musical extravaganzas [well one of them anyway:], people in general
travelling long distances to come, the usual collection of toys,
tasteful gifts...and many many more.

Please add your memories too.
