Trail: Crossdresser welcomed 26 hashers this evening and said a few words about The Saint before we started. A supposedly shorter run, but hey, Hard On can’t be supervised ALL of the time! Rank finally caught up with us but Hard On, true to form, continued to get us lost! A very boggy run across Waterside Grange, up towards St Mary’s school – no wait, Hard On’s got it wrong again! So, back into Springfield Park again, out into Broadwaters, up to Hurcott Road, past the end of Saint’s road, down through Baxter Gardens for the 2nd HH. Out onto the Birmingham Road, winding back down to the bottom end of Comberton Hill and through the town to the Town Hall for the 3rd HH. It was a little busy here and so we made our way to the bridge over the river Stour for a few more words from Crossdresser and a minute’s silence as we remembered The Saint.
Despite it being his run, Hard On still didn’t know his way to the On Inn!
Down downs: awarded by Doggy Fashion (who actually ran this evening) to Compost & Hard On for their interesting hash – it would have been a short one, as advertised, if Hard On had paid attention & actually known where he was going; Rank for turning up all the way from Harlow; Early Riser for his waitressing skills in the on inn this evening; Shag for Charlie, who was named Demon Dog for trying to knock hashers into the canal this evening; and finally one for Saint, RIP, and a few heart-felt words for all those there last week.
