Hares: Screamer & Smiffo
HASHERS: 18 GROUPIES*: 3
Pongo ... Good Crack
Capt F ... dry
Where were they?? That dazzling duo of RAs?? Nowhere to be seen so the RAin put in an appearance instead! It started at 10:55 and finished at 12:05 just as all the intrepid hashers and harriets had retired to the pub for a well earned drink or three.
When the opening circle was called by DONUT we had been peppered with a few spots of RAin, well some of us had, most were sheltering under brollys. The GM announced that the books were open for run 888 (sign up soon or miss a great day out) and delegated the HMs to appoint a secret RA (so secret even the GM did not want to know who it was!!).
Lots of bars and long falsies contrived to see most of the Knitting circle become FRBs during the run. PONGO and SHAGPILE were first to a numbered check twice and on both occasions claimed an age exemption. PONGO was rewarded with the Good Crack award in the circle, which he wore with pride.
Down downs for the hares. SCREAMER (who chose green beer) and SMIFFO (who was comprehensively beaten when drinking dark mild). CAPT FANTASTIC was revealed as the secret RA and awarded thank you down downs to those who had helped him with dry clothes after the run. Oh and SHAGGY got a cider down down for... ?. Then we retired to the pub to drink more beer (only 10 to choose from!!).
