The Log: Scottish Meet 11 May 2002

1 Conversation

As is usual for a Scottish Meet DD ends up with a pen and a scrap of paper to record events as they happen so that everyone can relive the bits of the meet that have been lost in the mists of alcohol. This time the scrap of paper was a photo that was found in Princes Street Gardens. Events in italics were added to the log after the events and times on these are approximate.
