Pancsi had planned to lay this hash at Miland, but that was before he put his back out while taking it easy on a holiday in Portugal which delayed his return.
Gallantly, Mussolini volunteered to assist Godiva at short notice, but with the original trail locked in the immense Pancsi brain they decided to use a familiar area.
Treefeller did a stirling job ringing round hashers that wouldn't have seen Spiderman's last minute e-mail or the web site, still there was a nagging worry that a small number of expectant folk might be gathering at the Miland cross roads even as we started to mass in the Bottom.
Old Faithful stood in for the JMs who were absent (so we couldn't try on our 666 Ts) and he brought news of the Ref's hernia op and of Sarah who has broken here arm while not riding a bicycle.
It seems that we are dropping like flies at the slightest difficulty, ee when I were a lad folk used to break a leg and still keep going, folk today don't know the are born.
While on the subject of injuries, full marks go to Hash Angel who turned up with a missing front tooth, I think she said it got bashed out in a fall.

trail that cut east to intersect the parallel north/south trail where our northerly
Up the slope, away from the roadside roar, OF thanked the hares and we heard nominations
for Pancsi for being a wimp and Mussolini for volunteering, with Pru being awarded the

(i.e. For being totally lost). Shock horror though, Flash then admitted that he had
forgotten his flash and so was impotent as a Hash Flash.... someone Treefeller? did the honours.
