Run No. 1449 14th May 2012
Venue: The White Lion!
Hare(s): That’s a good one!
Runners: Circa 20
Après ‘A nightmare’
Hounds: 1 (or was there?)
The Curate eventually welcomed everybody to the run including and in particular Bus Stop; 5 visitors - one from Houston (I thought he said "Euston" first time around - not very good on accents) and one who had run there but lived locally and whose parents had apparently run with Herts Hash some years back; Bend over and his mate, and an Enfield hasher.
In between the evenings events the pack paid their respects to Windmill.
Before and after was a mitigating disaster the like of which has probably not occurred for some time but as I don't have time to expand on this, if you did miss the run you'll need to talk to somebody who was there to find out why. The down downs may-hold the clue.
Psycho and Skip - for not being the hare Visitors - for being visitors
Spermhead - for not knowing who the hare was lady whose name has erased from my hand
Paxo - for being the hare for 50th run (one with the dog -possibly)
Ketchup - for chasing the Hare on golf course
Me - pick anyone from 5
Run No. 1450 21st May 2012
Venue: The Tally Ho!
Curate arrived a bit stressed. Er' indoors having left no petrol in the car, he ignored the Sawbo
petrol station aiming to stop at Tesco outside Stortford. There they were qu'ing a mile so he carried on but worried about running out, then did a left at Hare street to Buntingford knowing it to have 2 petrol stations.
The first had a tanker delivering and another queue and the second although fine meant I was heading back towards Puckridge. Hence I arrived 'stressed' and barely on time.
A pleasant summer’s evening and a fine run which included two health checks with goodies provided. Always have trouble scribing the runs but basically the track started in a northerly direction then west, north, east, south, west and north back to where we had come from. Check it out on your GPS's but I think you will find it was more or less a circle.
Don't remember any rape fields which do stand out at this time of year, so don't think there were any. Action point: Fliptop to confirm rape fields.
Paxo was a bit late arriving and caught up on trail.
One of the visitors was checking the Trail for use at a later date! Tut! Tut!....
Forgot to introduce the visitors at the beginning so did so at the end, by which time it was a bit late. Action point: Membership forgotten visitors’ names as I write this - anyone knowing to confirm.
Farts and George were at the pub when we got back. Did anybody see them do the first check as
they signed the book?
Fliptop - for a fine Trail and goodies
Spermhead - for wearing a football shirt (Chelsea h'away strip)
Paxo & No Eye Dear - for stripping off together (I'll show you mine if ……………………..)
Cambridge visitor - for trail trawling
Farts - for being a pretty boy (metro man)
