13th February - Four Firs CP - Tampa

6th February - Peak Hill CP - Woodpecker
A fair number turned out for this windy (no - not a relic of the Christmas Brussels Sprouts) hash hosted by the inimitable Woodpecker. Indeed we were pleased to see three virgin hashers appear: Chris, Harriet and Erin as well as a full-house from the Up Yours clan (and a very big car parking space was found for them too so luckily no massive car pile ups this time round).
Groucho duly welcomed the gathered crowd before handing us over to Woodpecker for the day's instructions. We were to be treated to both a normal hash and a walkers hash. He did use other expletives to describe anything beginning with a "W" but deference to the virgin hashers prevents me from repeating such utterances! Anyhow the trail was in flour on the right, 3 and on, and first 5 for the fishhooks (as hashers couldn't be counted on to count any higher) but no long-shorts.
Just as we were sent on our way did we realise that there was no sheriff! Where co…

30th January - Core Hill Copse, East Hill Strips - Chip Shop + Up Yours

Well the merry band of hashers gathered to brave another cold and windy day. After some initial suicidal tendencies of Wellie the dog providing fun and games for passing petrols the group circled up in a somewhat dazed fashion to begin the day's briefings. Just as Groucho was launching into his sermon for the day did Dr. Jekyll turn up nearly mowing the band down as she came in. No sooner that than Woodpecker decided to make a somewhat spectacular entrance with wheel-spins and slipping and sliding around the car park - driving skills indeed!

We were without our appointed sheriff for the day so Twin Peaks ready came to the fore and volunteered her services. Concern was also expressed over the food and drinks (well beer) given Spocky wasn't there either. However Larks Vomit said he had 6 bottles of beer in his car (why?) and the thought occurred to us whether there was going be another spiritual event of turning 6 bottles into 6000 - it wasn't to be sadly as Dr. Jekyll ap…

23rd January - Warren CP, Woodbury Common - Tampa

A cold morning greeted the pack as they slowly emerged from the warmth of their vehicles awaitng to arrival of our hare Tampa accompanied by his trusty dog Ben. Once the circle was formed we were informed of a hash virgin who was amongst us, Twin Peaks son-in-law introduced himself as Dan, that name won't last for too long. Tampa then explained the various bits to do with his trail, Oddbitz was asked to be Deputy Sheriff and what a splendid job we weree sure he would do.
Within minutes of setting off came the first of several long/shorts the first one splitting the pack in half. Baglady set the pace for the shorts so much so she was seen running back not because dropping something but because of a fish-hook., what shame ! However not to be out done Tail-Lamp also encountered this fish-hook, his first fish-hook since 2005 rumour has it, how come he managed to avoid them for so long ! Our virgin hasher Dan was led astray by mother in law Twin Peaks poor lad had to do a series of fi…
