Hash Coronacircle #23: regular hashing to return

Image
For anyone that was unable to attend the meeting today and keen to see a permanent return to hashing, then you'll be pleased to know that we decided that regular City of Exeter hashing will return from next week, with a trail from Uphams Plantation on Woodbury Common. We will continue to review how the hash is working, and the numbers attending, and we will be flexible about adapting over the coming weeks and months.Hares are advised to keep trails to open countryside and avoid narrow paths. Sometimes this will mean that fishhooks should be avoided. One and on trails are likely to be the best method for laying. Given the more limited availability of venues and the extra effort required from hares, we may not hash every week, but Tight is now looking for hares so please volunteer! All hashers are still asked to register in advance of the trail wherever possible, and once numbers exceed the legal limit of 30, any additional hashers will be asked not to participate. Registration must …

Hash meeting

HHI All, Thanks for all your comments and they have been all positive to start the hash backup in September and none against. There will be fine tuning to be done but all in all the system in place worked very well. I will sort out an agenda for Sunday's meeting as there is still some issues to sort out. Thanks to all that Trialed the Trails and the information received about those Trails Trialed. On on Spockster

Hash 979 (YES - A REAL ONE!) - Joney's Cross - Spocky - 16th August 2020

Image
For the first time since 15th March, we've had a hash - remember Wide's trail around Chudleigh? Those were the days when all we had to worry about was indivually wrapped sweets... And today would have been our 1000th hash!  Instead, it was our 1000th hash gathering (if you include all the 22 Hash Coronacircles).Spocky was our hare, alreasdy claiming it to be the best trail of the year.  But first he explained that he had not changed the nature of the trail from what we normally expect, apart from the fact that there would be no fish-hooks, and that we were to keep a distance of 3 metres from each other during the trail.  We welcomed our visitors, from Hong Kong, Wai Chee Kok and Poon tang - in the UK on holiday with friends for a month. They were obviously fitter than most of us, and their home-hash were celebrating their own 1000th hash last week!The trail was quite short, but didn't seem it. Everyone moaning about how little they'd done for the last 4 and a half mont…

Hash Coronacircle #22

Next Sunday we have our post-lockdown trial hash pencilled in on Woodbury Common (hared by Spocky), but we'll have a circle tomorrow for a chat or discuss the restart.
https://meet.jit.si/hashing Sunday 11.05
If you are keen to come to the trial, then you should register in advance. This is for three reasons: for record keeping (Test and Trace), to ensure that we do not break the law (maximum 30), and to confirm that you have read the Guidelines and Risk Assessment. The link to register is https://forms.gle/8aemYqQkX6RWoxF68.
In case you missed the news, our Hash Insurance is now active again, and South Hams and Kirton have restarted. But there are obviously very mixed feelings about a restart with strong views that it's still too early.  I hope our trial will enable City of Exeter to make a sensible judgement about whether hashing over the coming months is 'safe', practical and enjoyable. But ultimately we will vote with our (shiggy) feet of course!

From swh3.info:
With the SWASH insurance now restored from August 1st, some packs locally are looking to return to hashing in whatever form they can. Others are not wanting to compromise and are waiting until we are able to run as a pack again. In any case, please keep an eye on the Diary for updates and use the links below to ensure it's all undertaken safely and within the Governments guidelines.
Please find the attached GUIDE which it is hoped will assist packs with what should be considered in order to keep the risk of infection to a minimum. This is just for guidance for now, so please keep an eye on these pages for updates on the lifting of restrictions. Keep safe and keep in touch. Buzby

It's Rocky's birthday this Sunday, and I hope he'll make an appearance at the circle on the day he becomes a teenager! And for some fun (!) we can review the guidelines that Child Catcher and I put together for the trial, return to hashing, on 16 August. There's a link to the guideline and risk assessment documents below. https://1drv.ms/f/s!ApHDHcDP2T-1gapA4fWELhrfEVT1Tg
