It was a small group that formed up on the Boozy Patio for this week’s hash, with a few of the regulars opting out to rest up for the Dew Pond Run the next day. There were a couple of new faces, Nicky on her once every 6 month hash and Eliza the new Bird Girl.
A short hash was planned to fit in with all the other island activities scheduled for the evening. 6 circle checks, and a nice assortment of the usual Ascension hazards, sharp plants, loose rocks, up and downs and a bit of rock climbing. The On-On sounded and the ensemble set off, over the sty and headed north along the side of Thistle Hill. Cresting the last ridge line the hashers had a good view of the aerial masts and Butt Crater. First believed to be the site of the 1962meteorite impact, it actually contained a Daleksurvivor of the Last Great Time Warthat fell through time and crashed on Ascension. The Dalek lay in its burning crater for three days, screaming the entire time, before it was retrieved. Its weapon systems inactive and its outer armour heavily damaged, the Dalek was sold at private auction.
From there the trail led up a rock climb, where the sound of the mighty vuvuzela echoed and then swung down to the road, leading up to the Sisters Cairn, there was some bugaboo among the hashers that we would have to climb Sisters. Luckily Flash Cake had overridden Soggy Boozer’s evil intentions and instead had run the trail around the southern side. Swinging around the gulley, the village of Two Boats was also treated to the sound of thevuvuzela, the trail then picked up the water line and followed it back into Two Boats and to the patio.
Arriving back at the patio the first order of hash business was to present BladeRunner with the last bit of missing kit for his backpack, a kitchen sink; finally ourillustrious and mighty Hash Master is properly prepared for every occasion! After the much delayed naming ceremonies for Flaming Crabs and George’s Bush were finally accomplished. The ladies were a bit confused on just what the name rites consisted off and refused to do anything before they had protection. This was one of the more difficult naming’s, which is one of the reasons it had been delayed so often. Flaming Crab’s enthusiasts had a list of suggestions prepared, some of which were rejected outright, some the writing could not be read and a few cannot be printed in a family newspaper. After much discussion her efforts to eradicate the local fauna combined with one of her more spectacular efforts won the day. George’s Bush also required some discussion, most of which focused on her paramour’s inclinations. Finally by unanimous decision it was decided that Flash Cake having completed and set a number of full hashes deserved an upgrade. The younger hashers departed for Creole Night and the Doctor Who 50th anniversary, leaving the older hashers to their own devices, never a good idea. Flaming Crab’s discovered the beer does make an excellent lubricate and thankfully the children were spared the visual of Soggy Boozer bounding around with a toy in her mouth.
Another hash survived! Next week exciting episode is a crossover with the BSAC Atlantis Divers!!!
