Hash #1002 was held on 14th October 2017 at Ozone Bar, Providence, St David. The hares for the day were Robby, assisted by “Girl Guide” and “Respect de Banana“.
Well the day started off with pouring rain and it stopped and started for the rest of the day, ensuring that only the die-hard hashers and/or the slightly crazy were at the hash. There were at least 100 hashers that braved the elements and about 17 virgins. On On was shouted out a few minutes after a huge downpour.
There was a runners & a walkers trail, although with all the rain a lot of the paper was washed away, so a few walkers did the end-half of the runners trail and most hashers lost and found the paper and trail numerous times through-out the hash. The trails were super with lots of bush, mud, river crossings and were enjoyed by all. It was one of the few hashes where “Are You” was shouted often by everyone – not because you wanted to know if you were on the correct trail but because you were lost.
“Girl Guide” escorted in the last of the stragglers after he had swept the trail twice and Simon Clay “AC/DC” the hashmaster for the day, got the virgin ceremony underway. “Jackie Chan” and “AC/DC” were wished happy birthday by their fellow hashers with the wizards sleeve, the dotty potty, warm Carib and an ice-cold bucket of water (“Anal Retentive” was that bucket from you?)
In spite of or maybe because of the rainy weather, great fun was had by all. Thank-you hares for another fantastic hash.
