Only the hardcore Hashers turned up for this Hash on a Remembrance Sunday morning that oozed moisture from every pore.

We observed the traditional poignant two minutes of silence and contemplation before Dogwhistle and Kinky gave us the usual mixture of truth and lie. Then we headed out, shoes already squelching, on to the gentle slope south of the car park, Splasher sniveling with a head full of cold and Snake Charmer on a lead from her soggy dog that has not yet learned how to bark.

We bumbled about for a long while before finding the trail north across the road and down Park Hill on Monarch's Way. Kinky was looking at the electronics on his wrist and muttering something along the lines of "at this rate we will be here all day!". If only he had brought his bugle, that would have kept us all moving along, we all love the sound of a good blow from our JM.

A few of us are well acquainted with the paths and Right Of Ways in this area, however others are not, so the series of delaying checks along the inevitable path to Manor Farm, worked well. A fish hook just before the plunge down to East Dean served to catch those that knew where we were going.

Panda and Flash led us into the village and past The Star And Garter (Gastro Pub) to the village hall where the lazy gits stood around and watched Dag and Snake Charmer checking the climb towards Halfmoon Piece, only following when a check at the stile was signaled.

Almost an hour and still heading away from the chariots until we found good flour down the treacherously slippery wet chalk to the church, across the playing field, to reach a re-group under the misty heights of Bubholts.

There are two ways to proceed from here, steep and steeper, with Bambi who should know better trying the latter of these while the rest correctly chose the easier, but longer option. Dag and Old Faithful ended up leading us west, back along another part of Monarch's Way, through the mist over East Dean Hill and to the On-In after just over one and a half hours of drenched Hashing.

At the circle we learned of Panda's case of fish-hook-a-phobia, how Canman had not brought a collection bag (now they cost five whole pence), Bambi's FRB-a-Pee-Pee and gave the Hash-It to Old Faithful for checking so many obviously false trails.

We thanked the Hares, and Kinky for standing in for BloodyL, and then had a debate on the merits of either The George or The Fox Goes Free. The debate raged on as I left to cycle home for an early bath.

On On! Bambi.
