As we gathered in the village carpark on a lovely sunny warm morning it became clear that not many regulars were going to turn out. Even Malibog's old old Volvo had failed to make it, Treefeller kindly providing the hare chariot.
We would have been struggling to form an effective pack had not Malibog thrown a three line whip to his mates.
Consequently we had many "visiting" hashers including; Nippy Knickers, Banker, Hiccups, Shakesprick, Insignificant, Eyeball To Veil and others whose names I did not catch.
So, after Canman had welcomed visitors and told us all about King Alfred's most historic battle against the Danes we heard from Malibog who for those of you who do not know is on his regular summer loan from the Stockholm Hash.
Nothing too weird for us in the marks this year, none of those "go back x blobs" marks, just a bit of the old chalk arrows on posts which means that your average Chi hasher has to look up while running and so fall over because they loose site of their feet.

We started out past the hall and along the side of the cricket pitch with a check halfway down Jacob's ladder leading to a long slog on the path downstream alongside the Arun with Pancsi and Banker becoming specs in an horizon dominated by Arundel castle.

A check where the path turns west brought us together again as some of the FRBs took a falsie in the direction of the Black Rabbit on the opposite bank, the aroma of pub drawing them to their doom.

South then east over the small footbridge, across the road and then north east along the edge of The Woodleighs was next on the agenda with Nippy Knickers being very nippy out in front.

Instead of using the main picturesque but easy path to Wepham the hares wanted to turn us into mountain goats by laying the trail along a deer track through the undergrowth above, with various hashers in turn sniffing out the very sketchy indications with much predictable mutterings.

Eventually we got back to the road and were heading smoothly north until at the next junction the trail went right and up the energy sapping concrete road towards New Down.

A regroup at the next check was needed at the top as the pack was well strung out by tackling the long hot climb, some of course, for example NK, Banker Old Faithful and Shakesprick got there before the rest.
After a bit of a chat in the shade of a tree some chose the downhill path to The Knell while the rest correctly decided to keep on the level and continue on the road to Home Farm and so it was Banker and Old Faithful that found the trail through the farm and then west downhill back towards the chariots.

Downhill is easy, so it wasn't long before we got back to the road to Burpham and then after a bit of hesitation found the path that cuts across to the George and Dragon, reaching the Beer Near after one hour and one minute of hot sweaty hashing.

After a round of applause for the hares for a great hash there were nominations for Splasher who was moaning all the time about a bout of Athletes foot and Godiva for displaying green painted toenails, however the Hash-it was presented to Nippy Knickers for being all together too nippy for us.

Bambi.

P.S. Shakesprick has created an encyclopaedia of hashing on the web, point your bowser at www.shakespublishing.com/intro.htm you can find an entry for Chichester under E for England then See In-depth report and Sussex under the South East.
