Hop Pole Inn, Droitwich


Date: Thursday 23rd August 2012
Pub: Hop Pole Inn, Droitwich
Beers: Wye Valley Brewery beers (HPA etc), John Smiths, Theakstons, Guinness
Food: meat/veggie chilli & rice
Hare: Early Riser
Virgins: none
Visitors: Spongebob, Robbo & Dr Foster

Trail: An excellent turn out this evening: 23 adults, 4 kids and the usual half a dozen hounds for a fairly flat, dry road run this evening (much to Wrong’s dismay).  Quite a long run too, through Droitwich town, a little bit of greenery in the park and back along the canal.  4 HH’s but us slow runners totally were too late for the final one! (Roll on the kids going back to school).  Lovely food and beer to welcome us back though.

Down downs were awarded by Doggy Fashion (still recovering from the flip flop injury) to Early Riser for his flourless trail, redeemed only by decent sweets and drinks; Wrong who came over a little queer and disappeared for part of the trail; Spongebob for climbing steep banks; Italian Job for trying to garrotte himself on barbed wire; finally to Cinderella and Hard On for their skipping!!

The Cat Inn, Enville

# 211
Date: Thursday 9th August
Pub: The Cat Inn, Enville
Food: meat or veggie lasagne
Beers: Enville Ale,Enville Ginger Beer Enville White, Porter, Hobsons, HPA
Hare: Compost (with a little help from Wrong!)
Virgins: none
Visitors: Richard from Jersey, wife & son of Lassie

Trail: so at last we have some summer sunshine!  Most had to battle with the roadworks on the A449 to get to the Cat but about 25 hashers, a few walkers, a handful of kids and the usual pack of dogs turned up for a wonderful evening’s trek around the countryside.  The kids set off as the front-runners but we somehow ended up at the first halt without them - luckily, our friendly copper herded them up at the rear.  Some very tall foliage this evening with dried out oil seed rape fields and nettles; some skittish horses, near Enville Hall and we were all on adder alert on the (shortened version) home run.

Doggy Fashion awarded down downs to Compost and Wrong for their safari hash, Richard our visitor (the RA certainly seemed quite excited at having a “big dick” in the room); Copulation for looking at Annie’s inner goddess and farting (not because he looked at Annie’s inner goddess I hope you understand!).  There were some Olympic awards too: the bronze was awarded to Crossdresser for his 4 day endurance on his computer trying to get Olympic tickets; silver was awarded to Steve (son of Lassie) for his pole vault event without the pole and the gold was awarded to the Amateur for picking up Wrong’s right trail and running 9 miles! Was this caused by an inner Tom-Tom failure?  His hash horn was certainly a bit hoarse earlier…

The Queen’s Head, Wolverley

Date: Thursday 2nd August 2012
Pub: The Queen’s Head, Wolverley
Food: off the menu
Beers: Banks’s bitter & mild, 5 Hops, Thatcher’s Gold cider
Hare: Saint
Visitors: none
Virgins: none
Trail: A relatively short one this evening for Saint’s “mini-me hash.” 

23 adults, 3 kids and 4 dogs set off for a beautiful run out from the Queen’s Head.  The Amateur didn’t sound his horn at the first check so a few were lost right at the start but we soon caught up to encounter a little friskiness from a mini pony!  Along Kinver Edge and a welcome HH with beers, soft drinks and plenty of sweets.  A wonderful downpour of rain in the sunshine with a wonderful rainbow to go with it, however,  despite the glorious scenery, Wrong still felt wronged at the amount of road running this evening and short-cutted back to the on-inn.
Our RA wasn’t able to run again this evening but she was back at the on-inn to award down-downs to Saint for his mini-me hash; to Hot Lips for her 50 shades of Olympic trampolining; Mike who was felled by his very own disloyal dog; the 3 mini-me’s – Windy Miller, Lost Skywalker and Caleb; special mention, as always, goes to Hard On for his new trainers, and to Hard On and Italian Job for their shenanigans on the car park (a bit of a cock fight if the truth be told) 
Caleb was named Dananananananananananananananana Batman!  And Mike was named Get Down Shep.
