Four Firs, Woodbury Common - Strapo and Swampy - 17th February 2019

Image
Child Catchers 40th birthday and celebrations that involved throwing children (toy trolls) at her which she had to catch. The 'purple helmet' and glasses were for H&S.Mad Max brought a mad dog!No Butt made a return, and did Clever DickBollards made gluten free, vegan cup cakes Words by Speedy...
This Sunday we hashed from Woodbury common, haired by Strapo and Swampy, we started with a surprise birthday as Childcatcher had turned 60 over the weekend, as revenge Bull bait decided we should commemorate this by throwing child dolls at her, and to make it worse, each one that she did not catch she would have to do a star jump, – unfortunately she only caught 3 so she had to do 17 star jumps. We did this because she is called Childcatcher – for those of you who didn’t get that joke I suggest you go to - https://www.wikihow.com/Have-a-Sense-of-Humor.
Furthermore, before we started Mad Max informed us not to get within 2 meters of his new dog, Lethal Weapon III, who apparently is …

Woodbury Castle - Oddbitz and Wobblybitz - 3rd February 2019

Image
A little bit of snow left up on Woodbury Common for Oddbitz and Wobblybitz's trail this week - certainly enough to launch a snow ball fight.  Much of the time, we weren't bothering to look for marks, but instead trying to find a fresh patch of snow, before it all melted in the winter sun.  A very enjoyable 4.5 mile has for the longs, starting from the Castle Car Park (Estuary View side).  We visited all the sites - Four Firs and the Model Airfield, and some good views of the coastline. We spotted a big X on the side of the valley, and thanked the hares for going above-and-beyond to lay that so clearly (see photo below). Stingray was promising financial payments for hitting Twin Peaks with snowballs - I hope he paid up.  The sweetie stop was particularly boisterous - see the first hash-flash below where the were snowballs incoming thanks to Spocky.  Speedy was coating his with mud, for that extra special touch - and at some point Bollards told him to grow some balls, so he fas…

New City of Exeter H3 Haberdashery

I have put together a collection of 16 items including Hoodies, Zoodies, Performance T Shirts (long and short sleeve) Sweatshirts and Hats.
The pictures are in Royal Blue because that has traditionally been City of Exeter's colour, but lots of other colours are available, just ask.
Some items are available with small embroidered logo on the front and hash name underneath. Or you can have logo printed on the front with hash name across the back.
I have printed several copies out to bring to the hash.

Please email me your requirements elly.maynard@hotmail.com or PM me via Messenger and I will let you know other options, how to pay etc.

Uphams Plantation - Woodpecker and Howlin' Wilf - 20th January 2019

Image
Woodpecker had acquired the help of Howlin' Wilf as co-hare for this week's trail, although was he really doing Woodpecker a favour, or was he just saving himself £1 subs?  Talking of which, Spocky explained that 'favours' cannot be promised in part payment for the annual subs - which are now due!

As usual, reading notes from his little scrap of paper, Woodpecker told us that the walkers trail was 2 miles, the short was 3 and the long 4 miles, and you'll find the sweeties hidden at the sweetie stop "of gorse".

The trail began with a quick jaunt though the plantation, and a false trail then led us through some dog muck, but we were soon back on the main path, and then through the main part of the woods.  It seem liked there was an awful lot of really slippery downhills, and the hares had an aversion to using the main paths - at least on the longs.  There were four or five long-short splits on this trail, and I lost track of which one we were doing. There w…

More photos from this morning's trail.  I really enjoyed my gorgeous drink - found crisps in my hair on the way home - but it was worth it for the comfort of those new shoes!
