Exmouth New Years Eve 2017

We gathered at Spocky's for the last hash of 2017. The weather was dry at the circle but ominous dark clouds had gathered by the time we set off.

The trail got off to a lightening fast start, partly due to the excellent "assistance" of Spocky's co-hare (Son of the Bitz) but we didn't mind and before long we found ourselves water side at the estuary and the only long/short split. The longs went on an epic trip along the estuary, while being pelted with rain from said ominous dark clouds, nicely soaking us but only on our left hand sides. The trail then did a complete 180 degree turn back along the cycle path this time, allowing the rain to even its soaking and leading us up the fields to the sweetie stop.

The shorts had been there shivering for some time so had moved on by the time we made it. We moved on after a few sweets not wanting to get cold, not realising that Blobby had missed the long short split and had unintentionally done the long and so was some sa…

Double Locks Hash

Great Hash on Sunday definitely over Stix 4 miles though. Managed to miss
the sweetie stop ( again ). Found all the false trails and generally seemed
to be on my own. At least found the mulled wine stop. Also seemed to be
planning ahead with Wide Receiver hare of the year's T shirt with 2018 year!
Never mind can only get better. Finally hope everybody has a good New Year
Eve. Don't forget to rate the hash. On On Blobby

Double Locks Christmas Eve 2017

We arrived a little earlier in order to safely negotiate the very narrow bridge to the pub. A good turnout of hashers joined us at the car park including some hash virgins in the form of Groucho and Beanbags' son and grandchildren and the newest addition to the Blobby clan, little Evie, who we have unofficially named Christmas Evie.

The trail was a fast run parallel to the river and up to Bridge road where I ran a false trail that seemed to take me almost to Exminster. The actual trail took the longs through to King George V playing fields where everyone spread out and no one found the trail until the hare pointed us in the right direction. At the sweetie stop it became clear a number of hashers had had a rethink and cut the trail short, which caused some confusion as we weren't sure who had remained. Cue Bollards going to look for Blobby (who we thought we'd lost but hadn't). Then it was on back towards the river and a pit stop for mulled wine and minced pies before …

Blobby and Twin Peaks 3/12/17

Sent from my iPhoneGreat hash today from Blobby and Twin Peaks, who doesn't look anywhere near a certain significant birthday! I clocked 4.3 miles on a lovely flat trail along the river interspersed with Spocky attempting to push me in 😀. Spocky took a detour back into the woods at one point to have a wee we think but we weren't sure! Blobby provided his tasty fudge at the sweetie stop which we had on a section of footpath that had been closed to enable a ferry (The spirit of Loch Ness?!) to be lifted onto the water. Then it was back on home, catching half the pack with a series of fishhooks. We ended by singing Happy Birthday to Speedy who delightfully showered everyone with beer!

We were very naughty ignoring the signs!  I wonder if the boat's on its way to Loch Ness yet.
