With weather better than forecast we assembled next to the cemetery where parking spaces were at a premium due to dog walkers. Our numbers were increased by six from the North Hants Hash and by the return of Steve (****head).

We were informed that Mike was still in hospital but improving, lying on his side like a beached whale. The image of this was too much for Pancsi who had to be supported Ė too much information!

As it was the 400th anniversary weekend of "The Bardís" passing, we were astounded to learn, from quotes supplied by Bambi of his writings, that he knew so much about hashing. Whilst Bambi was delivering his speech he was interrupted by gossip coming from the direction of Dag, who was dragged out and nearly had her teeth knocked out as the hashit was dully hung around her neck. Beware transgressors no mercy will be shown!

Hairbrush gave a quick explanation of our signs to the new faces and we were directed along the side of the cemetery to the first of many close knit checks. After a bit of confusion, due to sabotage, we zig-zagged our way down to the Midhurst road.

One of many sneaky back checks had us climbing our way back up hill only to head back down again. Eventually we arrived at the famous vista point overlooking the valley where many photos have been taken. We all know that one does not loose height unnecessarily but no one could have told Hanging About who didnít hesitate to run straight downhill before all other routes had been checked. Unfortunately he was correct and was disappearing into the distance before we were convinced he was right.

With the lead changing, Blood Doc and Silvia Fox led the way through the rhododendrons where the first of our fallers, Frankie, took a dive. At least she did it on dry land unlike Damp Patch who waited for the shiggy to live up to her name. Even The Panda complained that she managed to get mud on one of her shoes but donít worry her manservant, Flash, will clean her shoes when she gets home!

After an unscheduled photo shoot, that the FRBís missed, we headed around the lakes following the contours near to the vista check but cut away uphill towards the chariots. Here we did get a little spread out but our hare, Two Ferrets Fighting said she wasn'ít concerned "let them find their own way back". Well the On-In was only just around the corner.

The excellent run was exactly 1 hour and consisted of the most checks ever seen on a 60 minute run.

At the circle nominations were Splasher, for being too quick for Pancsi to push him into the lake and Damp Patch for taking a dive. After much deliberation it was awarded to Frankie for not only taking a tumble but for being too inquisitive in wanting to knowing what the Hashit was awarded for. Sheíll learn!

Refreshments were taken at The Country Inn at Bepton.

On-On! O.F.
