Chudleigh Knighton - Wide Receiver - 25 August 2019

Image
Hello, todays run was from Cheriton bishop (Stix: thats Chudleigh Knighton!) laid by Wide and Tight (Stix: I don't think Tight had anything to do with it - other than making the cakes!), on Wide's birthday run, again it was run 949 because I made an error updating the spreadsheet, but next week I promise it will be 950!
Nice car park Very warm weather 6 long shorts Lots of virgins Coffin and Imelda turned up late Tight introduced some virgins and when they called her Ellie, she replied that “She has never been called Tight before” (Quote of the week) Speedy and stingray mislead the pack up a hill We consistently checked wrong at the beginning The hash all cooled off by walking through a river before reaching the sweetie stop, where wide splashed everyone, upsetting the easily offended Got lost at a check again A few more long shorts and we were back Speedy put a mask with Spockys face on it and got a picture with wide. Speedy still with Spockys mask on declined some cake saying…

East Hill Strips - Howlin' Wilf and Riverdance - 18th August 2019

Image
This week we hashed somewhere near Ottery, which for those of you who are less capable at geography, is in Devon, England, to our delight the trail was laid by Howling Wilf and Riverdance.

We watched a plane come over the car park Only the elite few turned up, as well as the hashers A man in a western power landrover drove top speed up the car park, and then to show off maxed it out in reverse. An elderly man's arrived and did a big smelly poo in the middle of the track. Twin peak's told him to clear it up - which he did by flicking into the ditch. Woodpecker turned up late We were told in the circle, that it was one-and-on on the longs but was 3-and-on on the shorts. Very confusing for hashers We were alarmed to find that there was some shooting in a nearby field, I did not know what they were shooting at Quote of the week "I haven't got my leg over on a SUnday morning for a long time" (Twin Peaks). There was a sweet stop where Speedy, Stix and Rocky arrived fir…

Woodbury Common - Woodpecker - 11th August 2019

Image
A good turnout today - especially considering Isca's Roman Away Day in Teignmouth. Obviously the temptation of Mrs Woodpecker's food and drink afterwards was too good to miss. It was also going to be a day of dodging the showers, and we nearly managed this - it just began to rain as we left Exton.

Bollards kicked the hash off - nearly 10 mins late - but there were no late comers for a change! We gathered round some puddles and some dog poo (which Bull Bait was hoping some would step in, but which Boots kindly scooped up). As with most of Woodpecker's trails, he managed to get the whole pack going the wrong way at the start!

There was an early long-short split as we headed towards the Model Air field car park, then another long-short near the woods to the north, where the longs struggled a bit to find the trail that looped them back up a very steep slope to the shorts. Through the woods, where we lost the trail again in the ferns and bracken, across the road and to the regro…

Image
This week we ran from Days Pottles Lane, starting from a bridge over the A38 near Exminster, hared by the whole Stix family.

Run number 946The best 16 hashers attendedStix pose the question "How many bridges will we cross?"We came across a flattened moleThose on the shorts saw some llamas, and then went up a the very steep Coffinswell LaneThe longs enjoyed a long-long, with fish hooks!Bridge number 1 across the M5On the short, Stix managed to send X-bitz, Itzy-bitz, Son of the Bitz, and Woodpecker the wrong wayAfter a while we reached the sweetie stop where the shorts arrived before the longs, except for Tampa who overshot and went on the longs until he found the ha-ha - then came back to the sweeties stop once we were a;ready tucking in.From the sweet stop we could see the cars on the bridge where we startedAnother long-short split after we ran down the side of the A30When the shorts reached the end of a path, they came across some blackberries which weate, everyone agreed t…
