On English bay, the group assembled to be told it was a 3 hour and 3 circle check hash, therefore hazards would be ‘the dark’ and the usual loose rocks and landslides! Poor Liam, took Wood ‘n’ Pecker seriously. The on-on was across the beach towards wigan Pier. The later people had to run to catch up. Boots emptied and the trail continued over the rocks behind the fuel tanks. No Idea and Old Golly Waddler opted out of the rough rocky descent and pottered along until the end of the road. The boys took the lead, missing one important little feature – the hash. Back on track to the first circle check. A decision was made here; letter box or not. The letterbox inspection and repair team decided to hop across the rocks. Simply Indiscreet, Slippery Fingers and TLTH of D headed North West. An option was given for the remaining runners but they walked and talked their way round the bends to the exped dive centre. No Brakes joined in on the way across the bay, in flip flops! Dead Gross lived up to his name exposing the dead boobie on the roadside. Mucky Princess took her own shortcut meeting up with the hashers at the dive club.
Circle check and another lost trail thanks to the boys. With hands on hips, nobody would do press ups for Wood ‘n’ pecker, he lost the power to be taken seriously when he handed over as hash master. Under the windmills and across WWII lookouts to meet up at the dive club. No Brakes took the option to walk back via the road to save her toes. Others made their way across yet more rocks towards the triangles. Sportacus needed a carry across the stepping stones at the power station beach, Beaver Diva just got her feet wet. And that was the hash.
People assembled at the Power Station Beach with kegs and a special shippie cake for Mucky Digger’s hashy birthday. Other hash business involved a naming. Known for eating absolutely anything, always wanting more but resisting the haircuts, from Liverpool and a love of football and happy meals gave many options but we now have ‘Hairy Leftovers’ in the pack. Properly soaked, the only option for the younger members was to go surfing in the bay. More mature members watched on.
Next Week: Due to the Queen’s birthday celebrations on Saturday afternoon, the hash will begin at 8.30am Sunday morning down the track at the bottom of Weatherpost – bring your letterbox book, sandwiches and plenty water.
