View down from the hash to Tamarin.
Roman son of Sylvie who found the hash strange – never a truer
Valerie came with Roman and hopes to come a second time.
Annelise tried it, liked it, and would like another one please.
Stephanie Domaingue, thought we were all mad, but decided that she would
return, so she must be a bit loopy herself.
The views from the summit here down on all sides were superb. So blue
the sea, so clear the sky that the two simply melded in the distance.
Clear skies meant full sun: no better way to enjoy an ice cool phoenix
after a run.
The hash was educational. We had to be on our toes about our left and
rights as there was more comings and goings than in a roman orgy. Hence
the name - back check:check back. We also learned a bunch of new signs,
arrows in a circle on the ground. Where I come from that means re-cycling,
which, I suppose was what we were doing with the trail.
After a few goes of this the wiser, lazier, hashers cottoned on and took
to cheering the FRBs as they were running past again...and again.
The hash circle was more quiet than a City fan sitting by accident in
the United end: so much so that the GM had to shout even more loudly just
to create some noise to ask people to be quiet. Perhaps attracted by the
racket some Police turned off the road, caught sight of a large bearded
Scot wearing a blue hare on his head, and some other loony in a brightly
coloured hat waving his knob-ended staff around, and quickly turned round
and left again. Clearly this was something beyond their training. I kept
expecting the Special Mobile Force to arrive.
There was a big cheer of thanks for Fazila’s food – up to
her usual standards of excellence and hugely appreciated by everyone.
News in from Jimmy. He wasn’t here last time as he’s been
caught in freak weather conditions in Scotland. For nigh a month he’s
been sitting in his wee. Sorry, can’t read my own notes..sitting
in his wee cottage trapped by a snowdrift so large that only the chimney
sticks out from the top. Mercifully, rescuers finally reached his remote
home and called down the chimney “Are you there Jimmy?”
“Who’s there?” came the reply.
“ ‘Tis the Red Cross, Jimmy.”
“Ach, go away!” came the shout “I gave last year.”
Strong On was in tradition enforcing mode this week.
Stephanie, for overtaking the RA without asking permission first
Jean-Francois for marking the trail in cryptograms
Olivier, not for holding hands on the hash, but for holding hands with
his own other half
Sylvie committed the cardinal sin of being caught wearing new shoes to
Awarded by a wholly transparent democratic process to Jean Francois.
Oi! Bring back our dodo! I’m warning you, we’ve got an Exocet,
he’s often loaded, and we’re not afraid to use him.
