When a summer's sun blazes down out of an azure sky the shade and cool beneath a green canopy makes for a lovely hashing environment. This was to come as we gathered in the well known Eartham Woods car park, so well known that the hares had not placed a HHH board at the entrance, obviously everyone knows this venue, don't they?

In any event a decent sized pack gathered in one of the really bright spots and as Belle and Marty fidgited and whined in anticipation Hairbrush held us spellbound by recounting tales of the empire, Canadian and Hong Kongese independence and the battle of El Alamein. More importantly was the decision to retire to The George after the hash, not popular with everyone, however now under new management, so we'll see.

A couple of woof woofs and we were off, into the welcoming shade, to the south east. in the general direction of Wood Cottage. Pretty quickly Pink Flamingo and Dr Blood discovered that the trail start was similar to a route that they had used not long ago, taking the little dog leg to end up running north east on Stane Street.

Kinky was having trouble seeing flour in the dappled light, at one stage going way past a falsie that was perfectly visible to Splasher who is well known for his eagle eye.

We continued in the footsteps of the Romans, through a few more checks before heading south and the first of a rash of fish hooks, the first catching Bambi, Kinky, Prancer and Splasher.

I am not sure exactly where we went from this point, mostly because I was now at the back of the pack and listening to Spiderman telling me all about his new web, while we proceeded in an anticlockwise loop taking us back to Stane Street.

Along the way I did notice that Jones was checking out a load of falsies, supported by his personal trainer, and that The Ref has picked up a bit of Mussolini-itis, that is, he was standing on falsies until a bunch of hashers arrive.

Meanwhile fish hooks came and went, and hashers circulated around us as Spiderman went on about ftp and other techy things.

Soon we were at that triangle of paths just east of Mary's Wood, and Splasher and some others took a shortcut on the hypotenuse while the rest were the squares on the other two sides.

A concealed path from the southern vertex takes one into Mary's Wood, and knowing this Bambi was able to shoot to the front of the pack and reach ANOTHER xxxx! fishook that also caught Prancer, The Ref, and Splasher.

Suddenly, Dogwhistle, Bika and Aragorn arrived from stage left, after starting late, blaming lack of signage, and having followed us by ear for ages, with the occasional sound of Kinky's foliage muffled horn, because the marked checks had run out after the fourth, moan, moan moan.

Finally we all followed Jones as he sprinted to the On-In after one hour and three minutes of cool green hashing.

At the circle, in the shade this time, surely Splasher must be most guilty, (cheap new shoes, shortcutting) or perhaps Jones (FRB and running too many falsies) or perhaps the latecomers, but no, Vixen received the Hash-It for directing Prancer on a joyride around Eartham on the way to the start, but then perhaps a sign might have helped, there is no justice in the circle.

Then on to the sun baked garden at The George, from where Treefeller reported something about a Typhoon arriving at Goodwood, which is strange because it was a lovely afternoon everywhere else.

On – On ! Bambi.
