Run in Midlands at the foot of Mountaine La Selle.
Hares Etienne and Gilbert. About 58 present.
As promised, there were lots and lots of nasty, biting flies, especially on the way up the mountain. They served to keep us all moving because if you stopped, they attacked in huge numbers!
The run was very good (voted 10/10) with a selection of fields and mountains and slopes and hills and more mountains and more hills and ....... The only features missing were muddy river crossings and rubbish dumps. Otherwise a perfect Hash.
The views from the top were superb, covering both the Midlands area and the South-East coastal region on the other side.
There was a walkers/womens/wimps trail which was a little shorter and led straight to the beer stop. The first "runners" were dismayed to find the beer already in short supply when they arrived puffing and panting!
Though the run was in a "chassé", we didn't see any deer. They were more sensible that us and were shading themselves under the trees.
The 'circle' finnished with a discreete rendition of our 'hymn' by a choir composed of GM, "Snow White", "Strong on" and "Shorty"
Many thanks to all who helped make the day memorable, especially to Sybelle for the food.

RA: Down, downs awarded to:-
"Strong on" for trying to compete with our official Hash Horn with his little, stubby thing.
"Lost Luggage" for not comming to any hashes for several months (his excuse that he was in Australia was not accepted). He took his punishment on ice.
"Blob" for getting up late and wearing his 'T' shirt back to front.
"SnowWhite & Fanchette for nicking beer at the beer stop which should have been reserved for men.
Sybille for some mysterious reason (maybe the GM decided that she needed a beer shampoo ?)
Special Down, down.
To the Hares for a great run in reat surroundings !
The GM "Barnacle Bill" & "Blob" for incest. They have discovered that they both have same ancestors. They presented themselves in fashionalble Afgan garb with only their eyes showing, as a sign of repentance.No beer was awarded as it would not be acceptable for Afgans to drink that horrible, decadent, Western rubbish.
Smelly toilet seat award:
Was not in evidence today. (Who is sitting on it ??)
