The weather was nice; perfect running conditions.
Spocky turned up through the
wrong entrance to the car park and, in addition to that, started doing donuts in his
There were new Hashers: Earl grey; who
started hashing in China and his partner who is yet to be named.
Twin peaks wanted 10 back on a fishhook and that was quite a lot
considering there were only 12 runners on the longs.
Not far from the start, we came to a field of long grass where there was along short split. The longs went through a small tyre track. I thought I was going to fall in there and disappear. Further down the track we came to a ha-ha which was not funny. No-one seemed to want to go back as it was a long way so they took a short cut and went round a corner to meet the short. Moments later we came to a herd of cows which
were mooing loudly. Speedy said ‘Hello girls’ and Stix and I made some cow
puns. Just before the sweet stop we came across a
sandy hill. Earl Grey ran up to the to…
Words by Rocky this week!
The weather was a shock as the wind was bitter cold compared to last week. Woodpecker started off saying that he had put marks in that he doesn’t believe in; fish hooks, ha ha’s and long short splits.
Stix apologised for forgetting to bring the salad for Tampa's BBQ in three weeks time.
The first few checks came around, and one sent us straight down a hill only to find another one at the bottom sending the trail all the way back up the hill where we'd come from.
Not too long afterwards there was a long short split where the longs were sent straight down a steep hill to find a ha ha at the bottom. Bollards and Rocky arrived first, trying to fool others by hiding, but no one found it funny or impressive and it provoked no reaction.
We ran along the golf course, with Twin Peaks shouting ON FOR!
After hills and checks and lots more, we came to the sweetie stop where there was an extraordinary view over Newton Poppleford.
Quote of the week - Child Catch…
So it begins as most hashes do, from a car park however, we didn’t get away until 1110. Bluto was even later as he went to Stoke Woods, nice one for making the effort to get to the right place in the end though. So after stories of traction engines passing the start and Boots in Puss tell us about the hash from his in a few weeks, we were off.
The shorts straight down through the village and the longs across the main road, over the foot bridge and then through the village. Damp patch and Imelda flew off as we got to the old causeway over the Clyst river but soon looked baffled as to the direction as there was a craftily places back check. Birthday boy and hare, Tampa lily, was shouting at me from a distance but as I myself am getting older failed to hear his cries. It was a jump over the walls and into the fields. X-Bitz, Itsy Bitz and Son of a Bitz scrambles over to find steps on the other side to make it easier. I jumped over all of them. Through the field and out the…
