Topsham - Hole-in-1 and Bluto - 24th February 2019

A gloriously sunny and warm morning The hares wouldn't wear the hare t-shirts becuase they "don't like them" Mad Max continues to "Break-In Ben" - always steer clear and don't approach from behind! But Lethal Weapon II not very well. The long are not marked...  Nearly ended up in Ebford! The FRBs cut short and missed the loop round the church We lowered the tone in the Lookout hide at Bowling Green Marshes, by spotting the LGBT seagull. Whoops - most of the pack missed the sweetie stop A viewing hole the right height for Twin Peaks Fines to Speedy for not doing the fish hooks (although he argued he did), for Spocky for nerd naming, and to Twin Peaks for avoiding fish hooks. **Now that Rate-the-hash is discontinued, you might be missing the opportunity to offer your own witty comments.  Please comment on this post if you gave photos or words to contribute. We'll be voting on February's best hash next week in the circle*** Words

Four Firs, Woodbury Common - Strapo and Swampy - 17th February 2019

Child Catchers 40th birthday and celebrations that involved throwing children (toy trolls) at her which she had to catch. The 'purple helmet' and glasses were for H&S. Mad Max brought a mad dog! No Butt made a return, and did Clever Dick Bollards made gluten free, vegan cup cakes Words by Speedy... This Sunday we hashed from Woodbury common, haired by Strapo and Swampy, we started with a surprise birthday as Childcatcher had turned 60 over the weekend, as revenge Bull bait decided we should commemorate this by throwing child dolls at her, and to make it worse, each one that she did not catch she would have to do a star jump, – unfortunately she only caught 3 so she had to do 17 star jumps. We did this because she is called Childcatcher – for those of you who didn’t get that joke I suggest you go to - Furthermore, before we started Mad Max informed us not to get within 2 meters of his new dog, Lethal

Alphington - Blobby and Twin Peaks - 10th February 2019

Groucho may his return to the hash as Life-President! Woodpecker did his own trail after arriving late (10 past 11, allegedly...) - FINED! We admired some Ferraris  Stix nerd named when he disturbed all the wildlife in the nature reserve when shouting at 'Billy' to stop disturbing the wildlife in the nature reserve - FINED! Midly Moist couldn't follow the trail, and ignores fish hooks - FINED! Only Wide and Stix bought beers at the Sweetie Stop (outside the Double Locks), and were told by the bar staff that they could have glass glasses, because they 'looked responsible' - whole pack FINED for not buying beers Half the pack decided to run along a pontoon by the Double Locks, not realizing that it ended - only Wide Receiver decided to make a 3 meter leap of faith - not very responsible! - FINED! Drop Off nearly got hit by a train - he tried to cross after the local train went passed, only to be shocked by a Cross-Country train coming the other way - FINED! B

Woodbury Castle - Oddbitz and Wobblybitz - 3rd February 2019

A little bit of snow left up on Woodbury Common for Oddbitz and Wobblybitz's trail this week - certainly enough to launch a snow ball fight.  Much of the time, we weren't bothering to look for marks, but instead trying to find a fresh patch of snow, before it all melted in the winter sun.  A very enjoyable 4.5 mile has for the longs, starting from the Castle Car Park (Estuary View side).  We visited all the sites - Four Firs and the Model Airfield, and some good views of the coastline. We spotted a big X on the side of the valley, and thanked the hares for going above-and-beyond to lay that so clearly (see photo below). Stingray was promising financial payments for hitting Twin Peaks with snowballs - I hope he paid up.  The sweetie stop was particularly boisterous - see the first hash-flash below where the were snowballs incoming thanks to Spocky.  Speedy was coating his with mud, for that extra special touch - and at some point Bollards told him to grow some balls, so he fash
