Hash Coronacircle #23: regular hashing to return
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 be via the online form (https://tiny.cc/HashReg, or QR code below) however those without smart phones or online access can ask Stix to register them on their behalf on arrival, or via email/Facebook (subject to maximum numbers) (you'll also need to confirm that you have read the guidelines, https://tiny.cc/CoEH3).
The simple rule of maintaining a distance of 3m on the trail between members of different households will be maintained. And don't forget to BYO beer and sweets for the time being.
There's a spectrum of feelings regarding hashing in the current health emergency, and it goes without saying that we all should be respectful of the opinions of others. Hopefully we will, in time, see the return of all members of our hashing family, but not all will be back straight away (especially those in quarantine!!)
