The Star athlete of the day was Hanoi Bill who reached the bucket with a time of 59:59 exactly
He’ll Do and Starboard finished the run after 1:03 with He’ll Do complaining that he lost time going up Bennies DH following arrows set by the Posh three weeks previously which were single pointed and a different shape. Someone should have a word with He’ll Do to tell him that hashing is not a race and the philosophy of Hash is that the trail should keep everyone together. Kitty Litter finished the Walkers Trail in 1:14 and was not happy at being sent back out to find Three Swigs who was enjoying the afternoon stroll on her lonesome.
The On On was moved under cover by the toilets where we all enjoyed the food s prepared by Hill of Grace. Both trails were rated 10/10 but then marked down because XXXX was involved in the setting. Down Downs were administered to the hares and various other miscreants. Just as the On On was winding up the heavens opened up and all trace of NBH3 being there were washed away.
