A weather warning ....With storm force winds ,echos of the 87 storm , leaves , trees falling all around us , a good sized pack of hashers turned up ,plus a new hasher kate 2 dressed like the Eskimo with all those layers of clothing , with both the JM's away ,Miriam handing out the hash notes for the vacant humble scribe .
Jan Hill giving a briefing on new hieroglyphics signs , dave barclay and paul were onto the first check ,we were running around the houses in circles , it appeared ,from westergate to eastergate lane.
Hornblower was holding up a lamp-post ,looking very pleased with himself at the front of the the group , oldfaithful checked out a trail but it looked like 400 metres than 100 metres , no holding him back.
Kate 2 stopped to take yet another layer of clothing of clothing off , this made me think of Victor Meldrew ,s cleaner , always taking her clothes off .
Passing philip H, school we checked out trails across an open field , with a stormforce wind against us it was hard work running against it !, blowing you off your feet.
We crossed the railwayline with stars in the middle. of the track.
Kate 1 was making a good pace keeping up with leaders , running up church lane confusing most hashers on the trail we turned around , headed in the opposite direction ,ending up at the Murrell arms pub , there we found a hopscotch game with crossess, by now Jan was a dab hand with his special chalk , down an alleyway across yet another railwayline ,past trading post , back to phil h, school ,checking out false trail out for the second time , back across open field with Hornblower leading in the hashers.
In view of no masters present , Roger Doc, awarded Hashit to Paul , as he had brought all lovely ladies with him .
All in all a very enjoyable hash .
