Yet again Chichester hash joined forces with another larger group of Sunday insomniacs. This time it was the Hursley HHH. Although it was a little out of our area we were well supported with 20 Chi hasher to their 30.

The Ref was first to arrive at 9.45 and with the aid of very good signage all were present at 11 o’clock for the instruction from Kinky of what we should be looking for. Circles for checks and a bar for falsies, simple enough then the mention of a second bar that was too much to take in on a windy exposed playing field.

With all the necessaries over we were set off around the field to the opposite corner for the first check, then along the path, over the road and into the woods. Luckily the front runners must have been on a carrot diet as the flour was very sparse due to being laid the previous day before the overnight rain and strong winds. Our Panda felt confident in checking out the next check until the trail became “too messy” for her and she veered off to the left “mustn’t get her shoes dirty!”

The trail continued south past old overgrown remains of buildings and through the shiggy with only the Chi calling on. To quote our late founder “their calling was appalling”.

Due to the leaves covering the flour we lost the trail and had a unscheduled regroup while a mystified hare tried to puzzle out where he was. Eventually he found the trail down to the river Hamble where we crossed a small bridge and ran nearly half a mile before being called back. The front runners had over ran a very exposed falsie bar that had almost disintegrated. Time for a photo shoot of 4 HERsley lasses before we headed back into the woods (see photos).

The trail followed the Hamble north and west for about a mile until we again lost the trail and everyone seemed to running around in all directions. In and out of woods, up and down roads, around open fields, clockwise and anti-clockwise but nothing could be found. Some started to go back while others, including yours truly, followed a Hursley runner who we thought was on the trail. Unfortunately we didn’t realize until too late that he was following the outward trail, so after a few checks marked with arrows pointing in the wrong direction we found ourselves back at the chariots in 1hr. 15mins.

The rest of the pack, led by our own Snake Charmer, came in after another 20mins. and for the cost of £5.00 all were rewarded with pies and drink.

After the down-downs, including Snake Charmer and Splasher for some minor infringement, the hash-it was awarded to Doctor Blood for using his phone on a run (even though he was 'on call'!).

On On ! Old Faithful.
