No hash this week

When we restarted hashing, we decided only to hash when there were volunteers to lay trails and not to force hares every week.  Tomorrow there is no hash, but we're expecting to be back next week with a trail from East Hill, near Ottery St Mary, laid by Howling Wilf.

Hash #983 - Kennford - Stix and Speedy - 20th September 2020

Nine of us this week on trail, starting from the Kenn Centre in Kennford.  No Bitz's this week. And Tight had a cold 🤧 Bollards was in charge and introduced Stix as the COVID-officer (and hare). A one and on trail Stix supplied a bag of sealed packets of sweets distributed on the floor for anyone to carry for the regroup. A hilly loop for the longs at the start The shorts headed across the motorway towards the Orange Elephant Up some steep fields with a fish hook, to the regroup. The shorts took a short short! The longs had a few extra miles around the footpaths and lanes of Shillingford Abbot. Lots of wrong checking by the FRBs! Woof Woof magically appeared from the hedges! Howling Wilf got lost. And an 'interesting' run in along the motorway There is no trail next week because we don't have a hare (unless there is a volunteer!) And anyway we decided that post COVID lockdown hashes may not be every week until the numbers on trail grow a little.

Hash #982 - Haldon Hill - Wide Receiver - 13th September 2020

Todays hash reminded me of all those summer hashes that we're normally used to, but have missed this year!  15 of us arrived at the Route 5 diner's car park.  Thakfully the vintage car rally that had filled the car park earlier had left, but there were a few intersting old vehicles left to admire. Perhaps those were the ones that were in a fit state to drive? Wide explained that he had had a nightmare with his keys. He was the hare and part way round laying the trail, he realised that they were missing.  He legged it back (keeping the last bit of the trail simple), but still couldn't find them.  He called Tight to bring up a spare set in case he'd locked them in the car - but still no sign of them. Turns out someone had handed them in to the diner!  Shame there were no fines this week! It was a good hour's r*n, with a bit of shiggy and lots of shade in the wood to keep us cool.  A couple of long shorts, and he often took the opportunities to confuse us on the trail.

Hashing, and Rule of Six
