Rating the hash

What on earth is going on. Just because I am not hashing at the moment it does not mean you can all stop rating the hash. Whole hashes without one rating in September, especially after the 20**  star rated hash in Ide.  So pull yoour socks up and RATE the HASH Blobby

Squabmoor Reservoir - Woodpecker and Howlin' Wilf - 7th October 2018

A gloriously sunny morning for the hash, with some extra excitement in the form of car park shenanigans.  First Twin Peaks led me to the wrong car park, and then confused me by holding the map upside down.  Thats how I remember it anyway. Then, there was a great amount of giggling as a small car (non hasher) appeared to want to ground itself on a tree root.  With a bit of car park juggling, he managed to escape.

Woodpecker read out his pre-prepared speech, telling us that we would find the sweets at the sweetie stop, to follow the front runners, and that fish hooks had been used 'intelligently'.

He always does his best to find something soft underfoot, and today's trail was no exception.  We took a route down to the lakes via an 'interesting' and not-often-used path, which involved slippery slopes and multiple instances of jumping over wet and smelly bogs.  Tampa was one of the fallers!

There were a few long-shorts which kept the pack together well, and we headed u…

Pynes Hill - Hole-in-1 - 30th September 2018

Image
When we arrived Hole-in-one was looking a little dejected and alone on the pavement, but she soon cheered up once she saw us(!)  This was the first hash that she'd laid from (near) her new home.  Tampa and Brains appeared rather smartly washed and dressed - they come to drop in a menu for the Xmas meal - on their way to their 40th wedding anniversary celebrations.

It was quite a small pack this week, and quite an overcast morning.  Hole-in-1 told us that she was feeling particularly proud of herself having being able to walk through a field of cows!

We got to see the highs and lows of the Valley Park, on a hilly trail, with the hash taking us all the way down to Topsham Road, with a regroup at the bottom, and sweeties a little way back up. I was apparently 'lost on trail' just because I found myself quite a way ahead.  That shows what can happen when the real athletes aren't around!!

There was lots of childish laughing from Child Catcher and Twin Peaks at the sweetie s…

Whimple - Spockybitz - 23rd September 2018

Image
It was really cold this morning, and raining too.  This was supposed to have been the trail in The Bitz's new patch, but they have yet to move.  That's being saved up for the Autumn Gathering weekend! We welcomed Megaphone to the hash as a visitor.
Spocky explained that this was one of those trails where he was recce-ing and laying at the same time and that we were to expect a very long long, and another long that he'd given up on!  
The trail took us north out of the village, across fields, roads and tracks.  We found ourselves in a field of Christmas trees, or there was a good few of the Spocky-trademarked loops where he would appear like a "creepy old man" (Megaphone's quote) from the undergrowth.  Somehow, by the time we'd got to the sweetie stop, we'd lost Tampa!
He's found his way home though and fines were awarded for nerd naming, late arrivals, and going the wrong way (the second time round - Bullbait)
Next week the hash is from Pynes Hil…
