7982014-09-28Joint Hash with Hursley & Isle of WightStaunton Country Park BBQ SU719086

T'was a gorgeous morn, sunny, warm, light easterly. A few had an incey wincey problem locating the unsigned entrance to the BBQ paddock that had plenty of room for all our chariots, and more.

With such a large crowd, a list of all the new faces, even if I new their names is beyond the scope of this scribble, however we might see a Harriet by the name of Cream Puff again as she is a “local”.

Tart let us know, Check = circle, False = line, three blobs and your ON, “Not like Chichester's never-ending falsies” he said.

So then we burst forth on to Middle Park Way, hashers everywhere, until Sampson spotted more than two little piles of sawdust and we followed around Winterslow Drive and a couple of checks later headed north east across Thicket Lawn and into the woods west of The Lake.

Not having hashed with such a large pack recently I had forgotten how easy it is to not do any checking, and how hard it is to know what the hell is going on. There were three trails apparently, short (Tart), medium (Kermit) and long (Bika), I must have taken the long one because after a while the only hare around to swear at was Bika.

Lurking in the woods was the first fish-hook set to catch six of the best, including Big Bertha, Pancsi, Bambi, Kinky, and by accident also Dr Blood who misread the six as sixteen.

Next there was an outbreak of deja vu amongst CH3 because we headed up The Avenue and then west to Bell's Copse, almost the reverse of part of the previous hash.

Bell's Copse is where things went a bit pear shaped, a sizeable mini pack managing to convince themselves that there was a trail north beneath that electricity line that runs parallel to the A3M. Bika managed to get them back while I had a chat with Flipper, Ganges, and Nose Job who warned me not to follow Straddle Various because he “does his own thing”.

We were meant to go up to the top of Horsefoot Hill but Bika led us on a couple of short cuts east to make up time and join the medium route at a regroup in Furzy Plain with Flipper being at the front most of the time.

Next it was south east to meet Staunton Way and follow it for a while, encountering a fish hook (10) en-route.

The grand finale was a circum navigation of The Lake, including a neat false over a little bridge on to the island and a huff puff ascent of the hill and up the stone steps of the viewing balcony to enjoy the view.

The occasional whiff of something on the barbie then guided us on-in after one hour and fortyfive minutes of tripartite hashing.

Everyone whipped out their meat (except the veggiehashers) and slapped it on the grill before clenching it with their freshly buttered bun and washing it down with ale.

All the beer, salads, buns, BBQ pit, was organised by Hursley HHH, for which we are most grateful.

After we had filled our tums and slaked our thirst the circle was formed and we started the many down downs guided by three Religious Advisers (RAs).

We do not have an RA, so Bika self appointed himself as ours (our JMs having left early). He awarded our Hash-It to the RA from the IOW, so we won't see it for a while.

The Chi-Hashers attempts at singing were so poor that Spiderman will be holding choral training after the next hash.

On – On! Bambi.

Bambi.
