The White Hart - Stix Family - 22nd December 2019

Image
Words by Speedy and Rocky! This week’s trail was from The White Hart, Exeter, Laid by Stix and family For some reason everyone turned up in fancy dress Big fuss about parking Rocky was wearing a speaker playing Christmas music through the city centre 1-and-on trail Long-short split, where the longs took a scenic route passing the roundabout and then looping back on to the short We ran up on to the high street and had a picture by the throne We ran through Northernhay gardens down the road and headed to the sweet stop, which was in an obscure car park, where Stix had parked his car full of mince pies, mulled wine and sweets. Stix had brought his Gin as a punishment for anyone who did not come in fancy dress He also pointed out that the trail had deliberately been run along the old roman wall The longs went under the iron bridge and back around the other side We went through a graveyard before coming out at the quay We got back to the pub where we got changed and sat down

Christmas meal

Image
Ho Ho Ho (H3).. Merry Christmas! I hope you're all looking forward to this year's Christmas Hash. Here are a few things you need to know.  1. Make sure you are Christmassy dressed for the hash! There will be penalties for those not dressed for the festive occasion. 2. There will probably be parking at the hotel, but it's limited. If you park there then buy a ticket and ask at the bar for a refund. Otherwise the best bet is to park at the Cathedral and Quay. Depending on whether you park at the bottom of top, then it's straight across the foot bridge or through the tunnel to the hotel. 3. No money required on the trail but there will be a special stop. 4. We have our own function room upstairs for the meal and awards! 5. It's pre-booked places only for the meal. You're welcome to make your own arrangements to eat of course! Looking forward to it. See you there! On on Stix

Kingsteignton - Wide Receiver - 8th December 2019

Image
This week we hashed from Kingsteignton at Tight and Wide's house, laid by Wide. Only the few elite hashers turned up!  3 On On trail  Coffin, Imelda and Tampa were late; Woodpecker was even later - both caught up in the confusuion over closed A380 junctions.    We ran past a new building estate which was to be called Pennes Mound, I thought it was called Penis Mound  We ran down to the flood plain and then ran along the train line Rocky Conveniently found that his whoe laces where untied just as we reached a Fishhook, justice prevailed as there was a Fishhook shortly after.  Not long to the sweet stop I ran under the train bridge whilst a train went over, to see what would happen, it wasn’t that thrilling  Long short split where the longs ran up an embankment before completing a loop and connecting with the shorts.  A simple run down the road before we got to the On Home.  We ate some party food (including vegan pigs in blankets) and drank mulled wine.   We also sang Hap

Ellerhayes - Bullbait and Childcatcher - 1st December 2019

Image
Run number 963 was laid by Childcatcher and Bullbait from Ellerhayes bridge. A cold December day 3 and on Fishhooks were 6 We started with a check, where we found the trail going straight up hill We saw a figure in the distance coming up the hill, it turned out to be Howling Wilf running 10 minutes late We ran down past the famous half-built house, which rocky said had been bombed (I don’t know where his ideas come from.) Long short split where the longs did a long loop around some fields before we all regrouped at the sweet stop Some confused members of the public made the mistake of asking the hashers for directions. They asked “, which way is the church from here?” to which Spocky cunningly replied “, you can’t get there from here.” After the sweet stop we continued before another long short split There was a cheeky fishhook before the end which sent me all the way back to the Hare, however Stix and Rocky had a cheeky idea convincing Bullbait that enough had already gone
