Double Locks - Stix 'n' Speedy - 5 Sept 2021

Today's trail was laid by yours truly and Speedy. We welcomed back Bloody Mary who hasn't hashed with us since 2005! I'd like to say that she doesn't look a day older...  (actually I want hashing with CoE then so I wouldn't know). 

The trail started with by crossing the canal and a loop around the fish ponds. A long took the FRBs across the old sports field and close to the development of the new station.  Then back across the wibbly wobbly narrow bridge, and around the allotments, another long loop, before going across the flood channel and a sweetie stop tucked in close to the river in the woods. 

From here I tried to cut Coffin and family short by apparently trying to send them straight across the river.  But the rest of the pack went across the suspension bridge and in to Belle Isle park. Speedy laid a long loop here, which combined with a fish-hook meant that the longs (Paperwork, Wide and Bollards) got very confused - no change there, and it slowed them down anyway.

Then back over the river at Salmonpool bridge, before a final couple of long-shorts before heading home.

It was our first down down of the new regime, and it seems that things have picked up with what they left of, with me (and Speedy) being rewarded for the confusing markings.

Great to see many of the pack in the pub afterwards!

Next week, we're at Joney's Cross Car Park
