|Turned up at the Fortescue, East Alington. There were many dogs and kid virgins, a new shy virgin from New Zealand and some other bloke who was a virgin too. I tried to get out of doing the words by pointing out (rightly) that Tyred Bunny was before me in the alphabet.
Yet more history of East Allington from Overshot and then he added to it with some “interesting” facts about the name of the pub, next thing I knew I was woken up by Hashers setting off for the run.
The Hares did a good job and I didn’t find myself getting lost, it was suggested that possibly the hash had been laid by car and quad, but we were led to believe that the quad was in for a service.
Looked like there was a race between Poacher and Rear Entry, both with dogs, too far in front for me to see who won, but I guessed it was Rear Entry because when we got to the pub Poacher was talking about how he was a lot older now and was much faster in his day.
There was dog abuse and dog pampering and Prawn Star’s dog even had jingle bells on its collar. Sushi got hit in the balls by a dog and was later wearing an exquisite posh robe to get changed in to recover. There was a drink stop with Gin and Tonic, coke and lemonade and loads of different flavoured crips, the lemonade and coke were hardly touched.
There was a naming of a new hasher, Streaky S.H.I.T, because he has streaky hair and works in the South Hams in IT.
It was Cow Pats 1000th run and she was given a special 1000 hoody with a cow head on it. There have been 1156 South Hams Hashes, so her attendance since the start has been 86.5051903%.
Down Downs went to
Cow Pat – for 1000 runs
Nice Buns – Hare
Pimples – Hare
Running Late – Birthday
Traffic Jam – Birthday
Streaky S.H.I.T – for being named
The New Zealand Virgin – for being a virgin
Lots of big sausage jokes in the pub, and more of the same humour after the Adams family gave away a load of cucumbers and tomatoes. The only writing I can make out from Oovershots notes is “Miss mouthful – big sausage jokes”
On On next week to Shiply Bridge and then On Down at the Pack Horse Inn afterwards
