For us it was our first outing with a new musician - Mandolin Morris Man Martin - who lost his Morrisginity on the wild streets of Bovey Tracey. It was also the first outing in two seasons of the classic dance Whirlygig, a crowd pleaser with its shifting axis and constant motion.
Other teams had also braved the conditions and we enjoyed seeing old friends from many sides. In an additional twist, the squire fancied a weatherproof afternoon spot and so we had our first dance inside a distillery. Dartmoor Distillary, formerly the town hall for an afternoon of weatherproof dancing.
