A small crowd collected at the Red Lion this week. No miniature hashers this week; seems they were all having a Christmas party at the Klinka Klub! We were promised a short hash; somehow this didn’t give any of us a really comfortable feeling. Especially when the hazards included taking care not to fall off a cliff!
Off we went, on-on past Garden Cottage, through the gate and along Rupert’s Path. A nice clear afternoon allowed for great views, and before we knew it we were at the first circle check. Where else but the Hasher’s “Banana Ravine”? No rope was in sight so we thought we might be off the hook, until a set of eagle eyes spotted hash in the ravine.
What, Banana Ravine with no rope? Could we do this? It turns out we didn’t have to……the sneaky hares had cleverly hidden the rope. A few sighs of relief for the old-times, but a few worried looks for those for whom this was their first adventure sliding down Banana Ravine!
Off went Uncle Fester, closely followed by Bloodsucker, testing the waters as it were. A lot of Ascension butt sliding followed, with a few mini avalanches caused by the hashers. All made it down to Cronk’s eventually, safe and sound.
But where were the hares? We were starting to think that they were having a laugh at our expense, sitting back up on Rupert’s, taking bets on how long it would be before we started back on our own, when Dozy A’path came running down, still upright, rope in hand. Followed closely by Sniffy, who took a sliding tumble to the bottom, almost catapulting other hashers farther down the ravine!
Next, the trail led us back along Cronk’s with a circle check along the way. Dodging low hanging branches, and trying not to fall over the edge where there had been a landslide added to the fun of the hash!
Everyone made it back, in various stages of muddiness, and yummy chili and scones were laid out in the picnic area. Great classic hash, Dozy A’path and Sniffy! It was brought to the hashers’ attention that there had been quite an anomaly on this one. Bloodsucker, notorious for always being at the back of the pack, actually led the way for all but the slide down the ravine!
Next Week: Northeast Bay Rd. generator hut
Hare: Moaning Angel
It’s her last hash so be prepared!
Please bring a plate!
