A decent number turned out despite the lure of Wimbledon and the Festival Of Speed. We had newbies Isla, Steve and Nikki, a lovely sunny Sunday morning and a few horse flies to keep us company.
The JMs stated up front that the Hash-It had already been awarded but we would find out more about that later, so it was over to the hares who gave us the usual lies as usual.

So off we went, well at least most of us, all except Mussolini who arrived just as we were leaving, as usual. I waited for him to find a parking spot, get his runners on and amble over.
We were well behind the pack and beginning to wonder where everyone had gone when we discovered that someone had marked the checks with a “we went thataway” arrow.
We caught up quickly and discovered that Bika was doing the good deed using a small water bottle full of flour.
By now we had travelled back down the road into Rowland's Castle, left by The Harvester and then via a few suburban checks arrived on Staunton Way and back across the road and into the trees and headed north west into Long Wood.

A great check at the five way junction in Long Wood saw us depart west into the Thicket proper.
Given the relative heat of the day some of the pack were doing a lot more walking than running which lead to regular regroups at each check as we proceeded, and Mussolini getting so far ahead at one stage that we found him stretched out on a bench having a snooze while he waited for us.
Another feature was the persistence of the horse flies that were following us around in a cloud feasting on warm sweaty bodies.
Basically the trail led us in an anticlockwise loop with Dr Blood finding the trail round Horsefoot Hill and then Old Faithful leading the charge through the lovely deeply wooded section on the western edge of the Thicket, arriving at the On-In after one hour and seven minutes, which was quite long enough on such a warm day.

The Hash-It was, as said, already decided..... going to Soapbox because having been awarded it on the summer bash, last time, he left it in the pub in Sutton along with his house keys !.
After thanking the Hares, there was a rush down the road to the Harvester to get on the liquids and scratch the horse flie bites which were beginning to itch.

Bambi.
