Christmas Hash - let me know if you will be coming

Image
This year's Christmas Hash will be on Sunday 22nd December.  I have booked the White Hart in Exeter - please see the menu here https://marstons.azureedge.net/media/570088/heritage-festive-b5-herxmas19festmen5_web.pdf. (2 courses are £14.99, 3 courses £16.99 - there *may* be a hash subsidy for members).



I need to know who anticpates coming within the next few weeks so that they can reserve an appropriate room or space in the restaurant.

Please email or message me, via Stix@CityofExeterH3.org.uk, or via facebook.

I will then need you menu choices and final confirmation by end of November.

At the moment, I have got a big YES from Stix, Bollards, Rocky, Speedy, Bullbait, Child Catcher, Stingray, Splat, Paperwork, Sorepoint, Twinpeaks, Howlin Wilf, Spocky, X-bit, Itzy, Son, Wide, Tight, Belltoll, Puss, Boots (+ children), Woodpecker, Mad Max

October 13th hash - Meeting point, car park and Sunday lunch

Image
In two weeks time, the hash is being laid by me (and probably Bollards...) - we will meet by the bridge from the Cathedral and Quay car park, that goes over Western Way (by the City Wall) - its at the junction of South Street with Western Way (red cross below). You are best parking at the Cathedral and Quay or Magdelen Street Car Park.  After the hash, I've booke a table at the White Hart - menu is here https://www.whitehartpubexeter.co.uk/menus/ln19-heritage-main-menu-sunday-roast/ . They also have the deal below.  There is also a gluten free/what free menu https://marstons.azureedge.net/media/568814/m3k17918_marstons_heritage_ln19_ngci_menu_a4_aw_hln19ngcib3_3.pdf, and lots of veggie/vegan options.

Note, its the same day as the Great West Run, so there will be some diversions in place - these might affect you if ou're coming from the north of the city (e.g. Cowley Bridge / Tiverton / Stoke Canon) or if you normally use Pinhoe Road. See https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/760f84_e…

Ashclyst Forest - Bullbait - 29th September 2019

Image
A good size pack turned out on a wet and windy Sunday morning at Ashclyst Forest.  Spocky welcomed the pack - with his two pairs of shorts on (I never quite worked out why).  We welcomed Chippy back - who'd come with Woodpecker.  And it was the last visit from Sorepoint and Paperwork with the summer coming to a close and their Sunday morning hashing returning to Taunton.  Spocky drew attention first to Speedy's broken wrist - which appeared longer than his unbroken one - and to Sorepoint's flashy new car. But Sorepoint told us that she'd been rear-ended (quote of the week?), and it wa sonly a hire car.

Rocky wrote the follwoing words:
It was a long short split at first and we went instantly down a hill. On the longs it was slippery and muddy, so we watched our footingThe longs were very long and when we had finished, we had trouble finding the trail in a forest. The marks had seemed to disappear as we went under some low branches. Child Catcher got very confused with th…

Cranbrook - English Muffin - 22nd September 2019

Image
A bit of a dreary morning with heavy showers in Cranbrook.  Poor Baby Bear was really suffering, and was unable to make an appearance.  He stayed at home with birthday BOY Cup Cake.  So sadly the BBQ was off - but then it wasn't really BBQ weather!  It seemed like Twin Peaks had brought along her entire family with two grandsons hashing, and it was good to see Blobby back on trail too.  Today, Woodpecker arrived on time, so we were able to make a prompt start.  A little too prompt for Doodle and Dandy (no Yankee) who we didn't see untill the on home.

The hash took us on a butterfly shaped route around Cranbrook, first crossing over into the park on the other side of the main road.  An interesting second road-crossing back again, with a large puddle to jump over, which once navigated, left us stood in the middle of the carriageway.

Many of the marks had been washed away earlier in the day, so at the long-short splits, English Muffin gave us some instructions.  We headed towards…

Liverton - No Butt and Mouthful - 15th September 2019

Image
Words by speedy this week:
This week’s hash was laid by nearly newcomers No butts, Mouthful and top off, in a car park near a forest not far from Liverton.

Run number 952 ish

Everyone was on time, which meant that woodpecker was early!

We ran into the forest of deep vegetation.

Twin peaks said “I need to get my leg up,”

We came past a large bear trap in the forest, which Howling Wilf suggested was for catching 2 white bears on the beaches

Spocky was at the front and saw what he thought was a check, but actually an arrow, this hence caused Spocky to “accidentally” ask speedy to go the opposite direction to the arrow, and hence helping pay for our Christmas drinks.

Son of the bits got very excited at the prospect of a sweet stop.

Stix and Speedy went the wrong way after the sweet stop

Fishhooks slowed the front runners down

Bull bait thought he saw the start and an on home, but to our delight it was a different car park and a check.

Rocky got fined for nerd naming, he called Stix da…
