Well if there isn't a run report we are going to get complaints from our global readership so I suppose I shall have to try and remember what happened 10 days ago.
A sunny afternoon made them all come out of the woodwork or hibernation to hunt for haggis, but only a few were costumed in tartan. A fine pack of canine hounds came too- do all dogs now have to be a variety of white?
Dingus sent the huge pack of runners (well about 10) off on a tour of deserted residential properties all with tall hedges and iron gates , before we caught up with the walkers lead by Hash Fanny and Disco Dave, passing them in a scruffy piece of land which was more likea rubbish dump. The front runners Louloup and Perpetch came running back along the road claimimg a false trail as they couldn't find flour, but Dingus said it was straight on- the flour went into the bushes where we soon found ourselves crawling along the overgrown bed of a stream obviously descending towards the Brague river- just the sort of trail Padre would have set on his traditional birthday hash. Again the FRBs said they had run out of trail, but a scramble out of the stream bed and through the undergrowth got us out . We found a latecomer, Farty Bum, by a check on the banks of the Brague- no obvious river crossing here; a left turn took us along to a car park where some of the walkers apparently spent most of the afternoon.
Across the river the flour lead up a familiar long slog of a hill- inevitably this turned out to be another false trail. The correct path involved a slow ascent up a narrow rocky climb with dogs, chiefly Farouk, rushing back and forth. But eventually it was a down hill run to where Pedo had left the beer wagon in a shady part of the car park. A few hashers managed to find a sunny patch which was a bit warmer. The absence of Cellular Sex and some other walkers meant Dirty Dingus had to go off and try and find them.
The second half started off along the Brague again, then after some trals through the forest we were once again in residential Biot and back at the start for a few beers before the circle.
Perpetch acted as RA and proposed down downs to:
The hares: Dirty Dingus, Hash Fanny and Disco Dave.
Visitors: No Grappa, Cellular Sex, Sinex
Returners: too numerous to mention
Birthdays: Prestressed stood in for Padre, Louloup
Getting lost: Cellular Sex
200 run mug: awarded to Confusion
Scottish dressers: for the few who had on something tartan
Shit of the week: in spite of nominations for Sneaky Bastard, the award went to Cumalot, either on behalf of his family whom he had nominated for being too wimpish to come, or for himself for nominating them
A chilly wind blew from Scotland when the sun went down and we went back to Hash Fanny's place ( for sale through Century 21) for hot soup, haggis with neeps and tatties and whisky. The proposed queuing system going outside in the cold didn't last very long. Sadist produced a Scottish accent with which he proclaimed what he said was Robbie Burns' Address to The Haggis- but maybe he made it up like most of this report.
