A good turn out with many returners as we met in the usual car park on a cool, grey but just about dry Sunday morning. It was good to see No Grappa of the RMBH making her usual winter visit to our area before she begins her travels again. We also extended a welcome to another American and Virgin; Cynthia. You would never guess she was a New Yorker!
We started by doing a pointless loop round the car park before heading out of the village; It was not long before we were running over an odd smooth rock formation which suggests it was once covered by glaciers. More likely all the vegetation had been trampled out of existence by hashers. As we hit the road the pack split up as the false trails and quicker hashers took advantage of a good running surface. This was not to last as road gave way to tracks, negotiation of a cunning check and yet another pointless loop. The pack were more or less back together although we were to lose a few who we did not see again until we arrived back at the car park. How anyone could have got lost is a mystery. The hare, Sadist, can be accused of many offences but laying ill-defined trails is not one of them.
Inevitably we started the slippery, ankle busting descent to the stream which considering recent humidity was remarkably bereft of water, much to the chagrin of Pedo. The ascent on the other side was pretty demanding but once the summit had been attained it was not to long before we arrived at the beer stop. Yummy pastries were included to supplement the usual out of date crisps and chips.
The return was largely uneventful. We did have an impressive canine contingent and Farouk, the new mutt of Prestressed, ran amok as we negotiated the slippery descent following the beer stop. His owner was suitably admonished in the circle. The run in was nearly all uphill and it was surprising that once we arrived at the main road nobody in the pack shortcutted to the car park. Instead, we ran down the road before taking a sharp left and making a final lung bursting ascent and rolling down the other side to the car park.
Perpetual Motion stood in as RA and awarded the following down downs:
Merrydick. For making a nomination which was totally incomprehensible.
Mug Awards. Prestressed 200 runs. Cumalot 100 runs.
Returners. Over half the pack!
SOW Nominations. Prestressed for dog training failures and Golden Showers for falsely accusing a hasher (the stand-in RA of all people!) of being a litter bug. Prestressed edged it after an electoral recount.
The On On was in a pretty classy brasserie by hash standards in the centre of Vence. Like the beer stop pastries, the food was yum.
