The Swan, Chaddesley Corbett

# 237

Date: Thursday 17th January 2013
Pub: The Swan, Chaddesley Corbett
Food: Off the menu (but I’d certainly recommend the faggots and peas)
Beers: Bathams bitter & mild, Becks lager, Stowford Press cider
Hare: Clodhopper
Virgins: none
Visitors: none

Trail: 20 braved the falling snow for tonight’s steeplechase around Chaddesley, it was a swift hash too, in order to keep ourselves warm.  Heading up behind Fold Farm, across the main road and into the fields where Clodhopper had a bit of a mare keeping us under control, Boris was shirking his responsibilities and Wrong threatened to leave.  Getting back on track, trotting up through the Point-to-point ground and around the farms where the ground started getting icy and boggy, leaving us all with freezing hooves.  A lovely downhill run through Chaddesley woods and to the 3rd HH where the offer of a sort cut was ditched for us to continue with the full trail – on on!  Back through the lanes, seeing Dr Whiplash broke out into a canter, passing the rest of us, and then the final furlong to the on inn to enjoy some wonderful fodder. 

Down downs: awarded by Doggy Fashion to Clodhopper for his great (and topical) hash, although she wasn’t too impressed with the freezing muddy puddles; The Fiddler for his crafty addiction; Slim Boy Fat for falling (and not requiring the shotgun); Crossdresser for his Mystic Meg predictions; Legover for 3 counts of smugness; and finally, to The Pro for bringing along her virgin pet to the on inn.
