Hares: Airscrew & Donut

HASHERS: 9  NEWBEES: 2  MUTTS: 1


Could be someone running
away over shiggy. Is it Shuffle Cock?


May be a person with a red beret,
is it Gorjoyce or perhaps a
Frenchman in fog


Some people shivering in a tent
with a candle in it?


That looks a bit like Fat Controller,
and is that Kisses Anytime/where/place?

BLAME CULTURE (or camera rot)
Ever keen to blame someone else (Team RA, Olympus, Michael Fish, Double Entry, Gordon Brown and others were all easy targets) Hash Flash was on the warpath when his so-called waterproof-to-10-metres camera went all fuzzy at 957, producing images poor even for this hash.
A subsequent investigation has revealed however that a camera setting may perhaps have possibly been inadvertently or deliberately changed, due no doubt to camera-shy sabotage in excessive rain, a design fault and the wrong sort of water brought on by the credit crunch in the absence of an RA.
All I can say is:
"Er .... sorry guys" (waves apologetically)
However it does remind me: 958 is a Camera Run (unfortunately that's with an "e"). Bring your automatic to Hinxworth and join in the fun as we play "Snap the Hare". Pics mean prizes.
HASH FLASH

AIRSCREW WORDS TO APPEAR HERE SOON? NO .... THE LAD IS RUNNING WITH BULLS AGAIN IN SPAIN - WHERE HE WAS KNICKED BY A HORN A FEW MONTHS AGO. WHAT SORT OF PERVERSION IS THAT? TAKE CARE AIRSCREW.

After seeing the predicted weather forecast, I was glad of a co-hare - Airscrew. I was planning to lay the run on Sunday morning until Ward 10 informed me, there will be less rain on Saturday! So, Saturday I wake up and it is throwing it down! Thankfully, when arriving in Weston, it had subsided some what.
The forecast was for lots of rain on Sunday and the they got it right - team RA must have known as none of them showed! - it soaked us all . Anyway, 11 braved it, including the Hares and 2 newies. Fat Controller and Kisses Any Time, from Friends of the Mole H3. 1st question from Fat Controller - Is there a knitting circle for Kisses? Only Shagpile could oblige on this occasion as he had offered to take his local pub's landlady's dogs for some exercise. Oh, I know it is probably totally irrelevant but she is a blonde 21 year old!!
ON-ON out of the pub and it is left towards the village centre which totally confuses The Count - he of local origin as well! After cutting across some meadow land, PP and Gorjoyce find themselves heading to the back of the pack, having avoided a couple of false trails, they were 1st to reach the check.
After meandering through the village, it was ON through Lannock Manor Farm. The pack stayed pretty much together after the FRBs - mainly PP, The Count & Shufflecock, were kept busy finding the falsies and all the numbered checks. On to a held check and rendezvous with the knitting circle. Both false trails were selected by PP and The Count respectfully. Double Entry led the pack down past the water tower, another check, and ON towards Green End. A cunning double back across a field ensured the FRBs were kept busy seeking out the correct trail. Across farmland, where Bangers, in the absence of Madge, decides to navigate his way through the dog shutter rather than taking a chance over the stile!! and ON towards Church End. Another rendezvous with the knitting circle, and after more false trails, it's ON into park land, near to the football ground. Several bar checks later. Fat Controller leads the way towards Weston Park, past the back of Manor House and, after a final loop through the meadow, ON INN to the Cricketers. [you might have missed the bit I liked: Shagpile yelling at the very top of his register at Bob, the one-balled dog, right outside the Canine Obedience Centre .....Ed]
Double Entry had to leave straight away - I guess on account she was feeling like a drowned rat! Bangers was not far behind - probably missing Madge! A welcome log fire in the Cricketers, complete with Doom Bar, Woodfords Wherry etc., fine beers indeed! Circle up and down downs for the Hares, Fat Controller, Kisses Any Time [or, collectively we thought Kisses All Over sounded better!] and The Count for some reason which has escaped me.
ON-ON to the 3 Horseshoes at Hinxworth - don't forget your CAMARA!!
Donut


Have you seen these people?
Members of the notorious Team RA Gang and evil leader "Rapid" Withdrawal are in hiding having escaped from North Hertfordshire with all semblance
of decent weather on Sunday 1 November.
If found do NOT approach without waterproof clothing and an umbrella: these people are dangerous
