Lovely sunglasses and hay fever weather made for a perfect morning to be out and about in semi rural West Sussex.

We welcomed Mary who once upon a time Hashed with Mendip Hills HHH, accordingly Prancer felt it necessary to attempt to describe our own flour marks while the rest grew impatient to get going. Then, more admin, important information about the 900th run tee shirts, so many choices, finally over to the Hares, the JMs, and the dogs are now at fever pitch before the pack explodes into the unsuspecting countryside.

As we leave Dr Blood and his progenitors arrive, he to try and catch us and they to have a short walk befitting their venerable age, he is hoping that they do not get lost.

Meanwhile, heading East just South of the pub, we encounter a farmer who is just about to start spraying the young wheat with some concoction that we probably do not want to inhale, fortunately he waits and nothing comes out of the little nozzles.

We head South, now upwind of the spray, and find a long falsie into Devil's Copse, and then just before we get to the growling A27 we really do go through the copse and follow Spiderman over the bridge with the woosh woosh of traffic below and the monoxide air in our lungs.

Sharp left, East, and a long run towards Hambrook, during which Splasher told us about his recent retirement, before the FRBs hit a fish hook that caught Old Faithful, Kinky, Dr Blood, The Ref and Pancsi. We had only continued by a few hundred yards before we arrived at another fish hook, this time for only one lucky Hasher that turned out to be Pocket Rocket.

Next we headed North up Hambrook Hill and a return bridge over the pothole riddled A27 tarmac to reach a regroup at West Ashling Road, for a "say cheese" moment.

After a bit of nattering we continued North to Jubilee Wood with Snake Charmer searching in vain for a repository in which to deposit a small black plastic bag containing a donation from Belle.

West next and slap bank on to a detour around a conservation area filled with lovely coloured poppies and slap bang into a fish hook that caught Dr Blood, Old Faithful, Bambi, Kinky, Snake Charmer and Mary.

Quickly across Marlpit Lane and we were headed South West up hill through long long grass and nettles that provided stimulation to the bare legged.

Over the crest our attempts to get over a rather high stile provided entertainment for the inquisitive horses in the adjacent field.

We were almost at the chariots, but not before one last fish hook for Pancsi, Old Faithful and Kinky took them to the back while the rest reached the On-In after fiftyfive minutes of thirsty hashing.

The circle was a little rushed because the landlord was keen to get us into the bar to compensate for the Sunday Lunchers that had been deterred by a car park full of our chariots.

The Hares thanked themselves, and then dragged Mary, Bambi, Snake Charmer and The Ref into the midst, all for failure to abide by fish hook etiquette.

The Ref was awarded a big Red Card because he couldn't come up with a plausible excuse.

We then rushed to engage with the expectant bar staff who served us cool beer and flavourless cider to quaff amiably on the patio.

On – On ! Bambi.
