Cranbrook - English Muffin - 22nd September 2019

A bit of a dreary morning with heavy showers in Cranbrook.  Poor Baby Bear was really suffering, and was unable to make an appearance.  He stayed at home with birthday BOY Cup Cake.  So sadly the BBQ was off - but then it wasn't really BBQ weather!  It seemed like Twin Peaks had brought along her entire family with two grandsons hashing, and it was good to see Blobby back on trail too.  Today, Woodpecker arrived on time, so we were able to make a prompt start.  A little too prompt for Doodle and Dandy (no Yankee) who we didn't see untill the on home.

The hash took us on a butterfly shaped route around Cranbrook, first crossing over into the park on the other side of the main road.  An interesting second road-crossing back again, with a large puddle to jump over, which once navigated, left us stood in the middle of the carriageway.

Many of the marks had been washed away earlier in the day, so at the long-short splits, English Muffin gave us some instructions.  We headed towards the primary school, where we had a regroup, and then a long short split that took the longs down to the station. A regroup followed at the BBQ area.  A few more loops round the houses, and another long short, saw us get home just after 12 with 4.5 mile under our belts.

Quote of the week goes to one of Twin Peak's grandsons, who exclaimed that Twin Peaks looked like a child as he saw her running in. Bollards replied that we've been saying that for years.

We gathered in English Muffin's garden with the usual beers etc, and sang happy birthday in the traditional hash-way to Hot Rod. Fines went to Doodle and Dandy for arriving late, and to Boots for going to the pub so that one of the kids could do a poo (which turned out to be just wind), and the Twin Peaks family for nerd naming

Next week we're at Ashclyst Forest, hared by Bullbait.

***If you want to join us for Sunday roast after the hash at the White Hart in Exeter on 13th October - please let me know via £12 for 2 roasts - including vegetarian option.***
