Mutters Moor - Woodpecker and Mad Max - 28 April 2019

Image
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.

Haldon Belvedere *Easter Sunday* - Wide Receiver - 21st April 2019

Image
This week it was the Easter special and was laid by Wide Receiver from Haldon. When the circle was gathered everyone cracked out the Easter yokes, which nobody was pleased for.

First, Wide Receiver put us into 6 teams and gave us each an egg!  When the team got to a check the egg had to be passed on to another team member.  He explained a bit about the EGG markings (Easter gathering games) that we would find on the hash, and how we had to carry around the egg for the entire r*n, which - when the end of the hash came round - the winner would be the team who's egg had the least damage.

At an early check, Swinger (blue team) gave the egg to Chardonnay (on a different team) and then smashed the blue teams egg into shatters.  But Speedy picked up the pieces and carried them on!

We went up to the castle where Spocky and X-bits were married. Then we got to the first EGG and it was an egg and spoon race with a twist as the person holding the egg and spoon was on another team members back.…

R*n number 930Everybody was on time, apart from  Belltoll who only just made it back in time for the start of the trail.Ben the dog was very excited about the hashBelltoll was wearing latex gloves because he likes the feel of them.Bull Bait and Spocky were the only ones silly enough to be wearing shortsVery cold and windyWe first ran along the dusty paths of Woodbury Common until we came to a back check and struggled to find the trail.Wide always seemed to be miles ahead.Bollards and Twin Peaks laid down their hand bags to go for a wee together (see photo below)We came to our first long short through the woodsThe hills were icy and coldStix took the wimps route over the stream (he went over the bridge when he was meant to go through the stream)Bullbait mislead Speedy into a deep puddle, after which his shoes nearly fell apart.Sheriff Peaks dissed out some fines to all the ill-behaved peeps on da hash. Speedy, Woof Woof and I got fined for r*nning through a cross on a bridge apparently…

Joney's Cross - Spockybitz - 7th April 2019

Hash number 929 with 29 idiots in attendanceA sunny warm morning, but not as warm as it was when we left homeHaving forgotten he was laying the trail last week, Spocky was still very relaxed about it this morning, and only arrived to lay it at 9.30. But then he realised that he'd forgotten his trainers, so had to go back home, and only had half an hour to lay!Woodpecker arrived 5 mins early but Coffin and Imelda were late Bollards welcomed the hash but had a sore throat. Stix offered her something to suck on.The unfortunate return of Paperwork for the summer, but great to see Sore PointRocky was splashing everybody in the puddles We went off road and jumped over gorgesThe long/short split loop lost the longs, but they made it up by the time we got to the sweet stop We saw a man in camouflage taking pictures of the hot birds on the hash Woof Woof got stuck in a gorge, with Spocky running to the rescue of a damsel in distress, and Woodpecker did a ninja roll under barbed wireStix op…
