Joneys Cross - Strapo and Swampy - 30th November 2014

Image
The Stix family (bar Bollards) arrived early, but so had Blobby and Twin Peaks, and it was great to enjoy a bit of warm winter sun - especially knowing that some regulars (Bollards, No.2, Hole-in-one, Spocky, Captain Peacock) were "enjoying" the Bicton Blister - a 10 mile cross country run just a few miles away.  Before the trail, Rocky treated us to his award winning dance!  Emerald asked "What kind of dancing is that?!?!" - clearly she hadn't seen Streetdance before!

Ashclyst Forest (Forest Gate) - Swinger - 23 November 2014

Image
Lots of old (not necessarily age-wise) faces making a welcome return this week.  Swinger had laid the trail on her own in the woods - very brave, and managed to get herself confused several times on the way as all the cross-roads looked the same (apparently).

Little Haldon Car Park - Double D - 16th November 2014

Image
It was certainly the coldest start to a City of Exeter hash this side of the summer. But despite the chill, a good sized pack of around 30 arrived at the car park.  We were sure to get wet on the trail, given the amount of rain the night before and all the water on the road.

This year's Christmas Hash will be from the Red Lion, Broadclyst.  Following the trail we will be having a meal in the pub and we need to pre-book and pre-pay for the food.  Read more to see the menu

Smugglers Inn, Dawlish - No. 2 - 9th November 2014

Image
This was our quarterly Sunday Lunch hash, and it was a spectacular sunny autumn morning.  A pack of 30+ arrived at the pub's car park for No. 2's trail.  Being Remembrance Sunday, we marked the 11th hour with 2 minutes silence.
It was about 11:10 by the time we actually got going.  The trail took the longs along part of the coastal path.  It was quite hilly but the views were amazing.  There was a short loop around Holcombe, again for the longs, while the shorts followed the main A379 towards Teignmouth.  We started the descent to Teignmouth Sea Front down a small footpath and through some gardens, eventually arriving onto the promenade near the Lido.
The trail followed the main sea wall towards Spray Point and we had to dodge the "normal" people out for some fresh air on a Sunday morning. The sweetie stop was at Spray Point with stunning views along the coast. 
The final leg of the trail took us along the sea wall towards Dawlish, under the railway line and up Smug…

Spockington Manor, Exmouth - AGM at the Bitz's - 2nd November 2014

Today the hash was mostly around the environment of Exmouth or mostly close by. The trail or trial was laid by Spockybitz and his lovely assistant Itsybitz using a shandy of flour and chalk. The weather was kind with periods of November sunshine peppered with the odd cloud drifting past the yellow ball, creating a  cooling effect.For most of the route this weather caused the band of hashers to sweat, some continuously, not usual for November!

 The AGM followed at Spockington Manor during which time we enjoyed a feast of pizza, sausage rolls, chips and garlic bread all washed down with beer etc. Well done To the Lord and Lady of the manor. Following members were elected to serve unopposed GM -Groucho, Treasurer and Catering Manager - Spockybitz , Blog Meister - Bollards,  Hareraiser - Stickinsex, Sheriff -Twin Peaks, Keeper of Hash Scores - Bobhoblin? For your reference Twin Peaks has collected a creditable £55.41 in fines to date to be used on the Christmas Meal thingy whilst the hash …
