What a difference a day makes! We laid the run on a balmy hot summer's day when the mozzies attacked like maddened Kamikazes. Now 24 hours later it was cold, grey and miserable. Still they say 'if you don't like the English weather - wait 5 minutes!'
The GM called the circle to order in the usual fashion. There being no birthdays to celebrate (although Mekon did try to ponce a freebie by declaring a man's daughter who fell over her next door neighbour's cat three weeks ago last Tuesday had a birthday) the on-off was called by the hares. The pack set off enthusiastically led by Scooper. A bar was soon discovered and the pack branched off into the countyside.
What can be said of the run? Well there were quite a few stingers and brambles to negotiate, a sneaky back check down an overgrown path that foxed the pack for a bit, some very pretty woodland tracks, a number of frisky horses - oh yes and about 10 ladies checks. Tee hee! Thanks to Gor Joyce, White Rabbit, Muddy Waters and newie Trudie for checking them out with (almost) good humour.
At the circle we were pleased to have a celebrity apres hasher join us in the shape of our founder member, Chrispy Noodles. Down-downs went to Scooper for his female impersonations, Private Parts (self awarded!) for telling an appalling joke, Gor Joyce for something-or-other and the RA for a mighty fart at the beginning of the run.
Oh and Shagpile got his 400 award! Facts on Farts: see Facts on Farts
