The numbers were up from the previous week due to the beautiful weather and our Hares for this week were the Morgan & Canton clans. So off we drove past the Sailing club along past the Sheiks palace and along the coast track to the QP picnic site. There were easier ways to get there but the Hares wanted to test all the four by fours and shake us all down to our socks. 3 Trails marked in orange and frugally marked as well. In these days of credit crunches and teaching your kids not to be wasteful there was not a drop of paint left from the one can our hares used. Micro dots of paint to show us the way and they were an eyesight test for our elder hashers.
For the time of year the trails were a good length and once your eyes became accustomed to the markings it was enjoyable watching Jaws leading all the kids down trail 3. (A modern day Pied piper) First in was Postman Pat & comments were made by Dave Baker and secondary ones by Danny Clarke. The spies for the day were one of Dels clan and one of Danny's ( The girls names escape me for the moment ( Ella and Christina ? ) and will no doubt be a bucket in the near future for yours truly ) and the girls buckleted their dads for being dad, Miss Disgrace for pinching juice from the Kids quench,Mr Comet and Gump for just being there, Hangabout coz they think he's cute and Penelope Pisst up because she's a teacher !
The Hashmaster informed the Hash that there is a Ball coming up on the 14th May and that this is a Formal Dance and not a raffle of someones unmentionable. There will be further circulars about it in the forthcoming weeks ahead. On On
