Hash Coronacircle Number 2

Image
Good to "see" everyone again this morning. Wide came in his dinner jacket and revealed his unexpected item to be a metal detector! Belltoll showed us his garden, I revealed my silk underpants, Spocky had a dictionary, slide rules from Oddbitz and Blobby, Bollards' Tibetan singing bowl, Ménage had his Grandmother's nutmeg, and Speedy's 400m running certificate!   Anyone got a suggestion for next week? On on to the Self Isolated Hash on Wednesday!

Has Coronacircle tomorrow

Bollards and I thought it works be a good idea to have a theme tomorrow. So it will be "Show something that you wouldn't expect me to own" Remember it's a family hash!! ;-) See you at  11.05 at  https://meet.jit.si/Hashing On on Stix Get Outlook for Android

Virtual Hash Coronacircle #2

So did you enjoy last night's Self Isolated Hash? Are you ready for Sunday's Virtual Hash Coronacircle #2? Did you read the hash words from last week? http://cityofexeterhhh.blogspot.com/2020/03/virtual-hash-coronacircle-1-22nd-march.html? It seems that Facebook only allows 8 on the hash, so we'll use https://meet.jit.si/Hashing instead . You can download the mobile app, or launch from your computer browser Circle up at 11.05!

Virtual Hash Coronacircle #1 - 22nd March 2020

Image
Thanks everyone for taking part in the rather hastily organised virtual Hash "Corona"Circle at 11.05 today. Talky.io didn't work, so we used facebook Messenger instead.  If you are wondering we its 11.05, its becuase Tampa and Woodpecker are always late.  Sadly on this occasion neither were able to make it.  In all, we were please to welcome Xbitz and Spockbitz, the D-family, Team Wide&Tight, Belltoll, The ChildBait family, Boots (briefly), Drop Off, Mengage, and Zoot to the circle. It was good to see eveyone, but did notice that everyone looks so much older via video call!  We saw Bull Bait's Coronacheck in his back garden, and the woolly virus that Childcatcher made. We spoke about home schooling, and Bull Bait offered to mark everyone's maths work.  Pleasing also to hear that Stingray has recovered quickly from his fever. Belltoll spoke about devon hash plans to lay a trail every Wednesday, and for hashers go aout andr*n at any time.  And we're al

Hash suspended

Unfortunately we (the committee) have decided to stop the hash till further notice. This is very sad but very important that we follow the advice given. Onon Spockster

Covid 19

HHHi All Right! So the committee have agreed as it stands that the hash should continue with the provisio that we all keep a sensible and respectfull distance from each other. No refreshments or sweets (but you can bring your own). We must understand and be ok if hares want to pull out or cancel last minute. This of course will be updated with the government guidelines.

Chudleigh - Wide Receiver - 15th March 2020

Image
It was chucking it down with rain, as it always does with Wide's trails.  And without either GM in attendance, Speedy - as the closest blood relative (as far as we know) - welcomed the pack.  We welcomed Blubber - his first hash for 15 years!    It was a 3-and-on trail, and the first part of the r*n took us through the housing estates of Chudleigh.  A 'short' long-short split, and an on-back at the bottom of a steep lane, before we headed through a tunnel under the A38, and being childish we all started making noises to echo around.  Blubber was the loudest. Then along a very muddy track and we reached the sweet stop right by the river Teign. Lucky for us we didn’t go through it - it was very swollen. Sweets all indiviually wrapped of course! The walkers hadn't caught up by the time we set off on the long, which looped up along the river across a field, and back to the tunnel, returning to the sweet stop a second time.  The trail was marked as straight on and t

Kennford - Stix & Bollards - 8th March 2020

Words today by Rocky (and edited by Stix) We started by going through a footpath, which took us to a slippy footbridge over a river. Tampa said that hashers don't use bridges - but he still used it. Along the A380, and then to the first long-short split The longs went in the completely wrong direction to the shorts; the longs went towards where we had started. A few checks and the longs found their way uphil across a field When the longs had re-joined the shorts. There was a fish hook, where we swapped high-fives for elbow bumps because of the Coronovirus whatsit thingy We came across a house which had an ostrich in the garden of. Sadly, we did not have the time to engage with it as it was starting to rain Then we had a second long short which took us to the sweet stop at a graveyard. By that point it was tipping it down with rain. Woof Woof talked alot about sucking hard on bon bons. We then headed of towards Kenn, then we got to the A38. I didn’t know where the long short

Sampford Peverell - Boots - 1st March 2020

This week’s run was from a The Globe, which had a car park that was bigger than we expected! Right up against the canal.  There was a short blast of heavy showers just before the trail started.  26 brave hashers turned up, We started wth a short run down the canal where Twin Peaks was barging Stix and Doodle into the mud, before we diverted onto a bridge, across the canal, and along some busy roads This was followed by a long hard steep run up various hills Then we found ourselves running through a very muddy field where Boots (looking very much like Ant Middleton) shouted "don’t be the last one” I nearly got castrated going over a fence A sweetie stop, at which the longs arrived uch later than the shorts. Stix took the photo, and was then remembered that Splat, Bull Bait and Howling Wilf were all missing. They arrived eventually (after the shorts had srated off again), and then a special photo for them was taken We went down the hill and came to a street called “The
