Clyst St Mary - Tampa - 21st May 2017

Image
HARES REQUIRED: 6th, 20th and 27th August

We were all excited to see an arrow leading into the playing field behind the Village Hall.  Tampa had promised us a different run, including some private ground and we were urged not to leave trail.  So on we went through the gate into the field and the pack scattered in all directions when the trail was actually around the edge and more or less back to where we had started before heading down the road towards the village and right up a narrow path that we’ve seen a few times before.  There was a dense crop of what looked like barley in the field, so there was no way that you could leave the main path through the middle.  On reaching the far side of the field and climbing down the bank onto the road we turned left heading back towards the village again before taking a tour of the marshes and losing the trail on the long.  A quick hop over the wall saw us, once again, heading towards the village, but we deviated up the main road.  Here was th…

Stover Park, Wide Receiver - 14th May 2017

Image
HARES REQUIRED FOR 11th and 18th JUNE PLEASE (need venues by the end of the week)

Another good turnout for a summer Sunday hash. It was already busy at Stover by the time we arrived: obviously some 'normal' people do get up and about on a Sunday morning. It was good to see the Plympton lot with us again, plus English Muffin and family, and others (sorry can't remember his name, but had two children with him - one on his back!).

Wide Receiver promised us a flat and non-muddy trail. It was fairly flat, apart from the uphill bits, and was fairly dry, apart from the wet bits.

The trail started off in a manner that we would quickly become accustomed too: heading away from the main paths, through the undergrowth. There was an early long-short split, where the longs took a 'path' through the woods, and spotted some rather smelly, phallic fungi - see below for photo! I couldn't get any of the harriets to pose along side it! Then over a slimy fence and up a bank o…

Widecome Way - Hole-in-1 and Bluetoe - 7th May 2017

Image
The first BBQ of 2017 and the weather stayed dry.  Much dryer than last week - it took me a while to work out why the box of hash snacks was wet in the bottom! On arrival, Hole-in-1 was just writing a sign for her front garden telling hashers to use her back passage.

It was good to see Howard and children back, and also a harriet and dog who came with Woody (sorry can't remember the b*tch's name [Bollards told me not to write that because its rude..., sorry]).
Since this BBQ was to celebrate Dropped Balls' 18th, it was suprising that he wasn't there - apparently he couldn't get the morning off from Burger King!

We were promised a different trail, and something on the long side.  Somehow Rocky, Stingray and I managed to get a long way ahead during the first few minutes around the houses.  We began to think we'd cut short somehow, but after a check where we'd gone all the wrong trails, the pack caught us up.  But the hash seemed to continue at quite a leisure…
