Hash 1463 – STOKENHAM

Firstly I’d like to point out, just for the record, so there’s no element of doubt on this point: I do actually have two children.

So we all gathered at the newly-refurbed Tradesman’s Arms in Stokenham. According to Google, there are five such named pubs, three of which are in the South Hams – aren’t we the lucky ones? Also according to Google, there are no pubs called The Trademan’s Entrance – well, I was curious (he he). Rizzo joked about a restaurant on the moon not having any atmosphere – I do like the pre-hash jollity!!

The hares (Bit of Ruff and Little Chef) gave an overview including mention of lots of L/S splits; this glosses (Ed. or washes? Or were you maybe already thinking of the still-fresh paint [and your post-hash pint] inside the pub, Can’t Come?) over me when all I’m thinking about is the calm before the pain.

It was the first “dry” hash in months, through lots of fields embossed with tractor tread, pink sheep and stream jumps. Gaffer short-cut the graveyard, claiming he was coffin-dodging; Lazy Git and Squashed Balls were overheard having a botany conversation, whereas Overshot and Triple Top were observed bromancing. Willy Waver demonstrated 10/10 gate vaulting – last time I saw one of those was by Ging Gang (equally elegant). Overshot claimed to see a rabbit chasing a pheasant, which may have been the highlight of the hash!! Wetspot’s contribution to the words translated as ‘Foxtrot Oscar’ – many thanks!! The evening was clear, no wind, and apparently had some great views – which I missed, as I was looking out for Overshot’s rabbit. Flage was over-the-moon to be staying in her camper van – apparently room for four in the shower!!!

Happy birthdays to Olive, Barbie and Can’t Come (your’s truly missing out on a Down Down (well, I don’t drink anyway…but I sure made up for it over the weekend).

As advertised last week, SH4’s very own Boaty ran the London Marathon on Sunday, completing all 26.2 miles in a fantastic time, raising loads of money for his chosen charity (the NSPCC) – and with trademark beaming smile still very much in tact at the end (even if everything else was a bit tired and wobbly!).
Huge congratulations, Boaty!

If you would like to add to Boaty’s fundraising total for the Marathon, his JustGiving page for the event is still open – please just click on the link below. All donations very gratefully received!
