The Burns Hash is always special but this was exceptional as I feel sure all the participants would agree.
Thirteen hardy Hashers braved the rain & wind (appropriate Scottish weather?) to enjoy the beautiful trail, which was heroically set by Short Shift, around the fields of Fontenilles.
Sweet Pea & IP were suitably attired in kilts and Tam O’Shanter bonnets (as mentioned in a Burns Poem) were worn by several hashers to join in the Scottish spirit of the event.
The trail was muddy, some said the muddiest ever, and slippery but all the more enjoyable for that. Surprising views, forest paths and a dearth of flour ‘blobs’ kept us all looking around and in conclusion it was a hash by, which we will measure future 2018 trails.
We repaired to Hairy Shoes & Short Shift’s house to enjoy an extended circle, where we
Rewarded the hares & our hosts for the Burns Party; Hairy Shoes & Short Shift
Punished our RA, It’s Complicated, for the windy wet weather
Rewarded Un Accent Comme Ca, for his untimely arrival, which he celebrated by performing a stylish down-down (noticeably absent in many others!) and
Thanked Privet for returning to the hash after a whole years absence
The Burns Party continued with food provided by many participants including Hairy Shoes’ traditional Scottish haggis & ‘neeps’ (turnips or navets), Thelma’s tasty Philippine inspired foods and our youngest contributor, Un Accent Comme Ca’s, Chocolate and Pear Tart.
My thanks to Hairy Shoes & Short Shift and to everyone, who contributed to the party food, drinks and general organisation required to put on this special Burns Hash party. I think it was very successful.
Hash Flash photos have been circulated to the Hash Google group via Google photo link. Please let me know if you didn’t get them (firstname.lastname@example.org).
