Kingsteignton - Wide Receiver - 8th December 2019

Image
This week we hashed from Kingsteignton at Tight and Wide's house, laid by Wide.
Only the few elite hashers turned up! 3 On On trail Coffin, Imelda and Tampa were late; Woodpecker was even later - both caught up in the confusuion over closed A380 junctions.   We ran past a new building estate which was to be called Pennes Mound, I thought it was called Penis Mound We ran down to the flood plain and then ran along the train line Rocky Conveniently found that his whoe laces where untied just as we reached a Fishhook, justice prevailed as there was a Fishhook shortly after. Not long to the sweet stop I ran under the train bridge whilst a train went over, to see what would happen, it wasn’t that thrilling Long short split where the longs ran up an embankment before completing a loop and connecting with the shorts. A simple run down the road before we got to the On Home. We ate some party food (including vegan pigs in blankets) and drank mulled wine.  We also sang Happy birthday to Tight…

Ellerhayes - Bullbait and Childcatcher - 1st December 2019

Image
Run number 963 was laid by Childcatcher and Bullbait from Ellerhayes bridge.
A cold December day3 and onFishhooks were 6We started with a check, where we found the trail going straight up hillWe saw a figure in the distance coming up the hill, it turned out to be Howling Wilf running 10 minutes lateWe ran down past the famous half-built house, which rocky said had been bombed (I don’t know where his ideas come from.)Long short split where the longs did a long loop around some fields before we all regrouped at the sweet stopSome confused members of the public made the mistake of asking the hashers for directions. They asked “, which way is the church from here?” to which Spocky cunningly replied “, you can’t get there from here.”After the sweet stop we continued before another long short splitThere was a cheeky fishhook before the end which sent me all the way back to the Hare, however Stix and Rocky had a cheeky idea convincing Bullbait that enough had already gone back, and idea whic…

Warren Car Park - Tampa - 24th November 2019

Image
Today's hash was laid from for the Warren car park park laid by Tampa, run number 962.

Car Park was packed when we arrived with doggers.  Not very easy to get everyone in!

Lots of elite athletes turned up, but not for the hash, (they were doing the Bicton blister.) Howling Wilf predicted a meteor strike on Thursday We predicted rain.

Most people were late due to road closures, somehow Woodpecker was on time!  Coffin was the most late - STix asked her whether her whether she was actually planning on hashing!

The first long-short the longs ran up by Peter's Pool but thankfully we didn’t go through it. We crossed the path of the Bicton Blister. We got to the sweet stop and we waved at the runners, whilst we shoved our faces full of sweets. On the next long-short split the longs went through some woods and did a loop. From there it was a flat out run with one last long-short split back to the car park.

Fines went to Coffin for nerd naming, Splat for sitting down, and Wide and Tig…

Prickly Pear and Blossom Park, West Hill - Spocky - 17th November 2019

Image
Words below by Rocky
We started of by exaggerating the length of the trail and joking about it in all honesty there were to many jokes to recall.

It was a trail of much confusion as the trail winded through a small place of land

We had a check, and someone decided to run up a steep bank, which caused someone else to fall over.

Then we came to another check where speedy ran the wrong way causing Tampa to follow him into going the wrong way. Apparently if they carried on that way, they would’ve reached the sweet stop. That didn’t really make a difference anyway because the sweet stop was just around the corner!

I wrote at the start about how confusing it really was but after the sweet stop we winded into places where we had been before.

Some more comments from Stix.
It was definitely not a long hash - 2.25 miles, and we were back by 11.50.  As Spocky suggeted, we really got to know every nook and cranny of the park!  Lots of calling back by the hare as we managed to jump from the outgo…
