Hot Hash House Harriers News – 1516 Babe Magnet’s B*det hash – 31 Oct 2018

 Beer Stop 2

   BM’s b*det hash was held at The Purple Bear, Northumberland Street on All Hallows Eve and the pub was seasonally festooned with the usual Halloween tat that is foisted on any unwary shopper brave enough to enter into any transaction with one of the well-known  high street shops at this time of year. Thankfully most of the occupants of the pub were attired in civvies, apart from a strange group at the back dressed in some weird, outlandishly designed hash gear  – oh wait  that was us !

BM’s recent forays into stage and screen had left him all but a wreck of his former self, so having walked the reccie he wheezed round with the walkers on a direct route to the first beer stop whilst Grasshopper (torchless and bumbagless – oh the horror) attempted to keep up with the running pack.

Speeding off to Leazes Park, the pack wended their way through the darkness as the stand in hare desperately tried to act like she remembered where the trail went. Fortunately an ever sharp eyed Misled spotted the trail so all was not a complete disaster. Having glanced enviously at the private party rocking out at Wylam Brewery, the pack headed over the moor and stopped for a brief hash view of the Central Motorway (also notable as the start of the GNR). 

Beer stopping at the Trent House, the Runners met half of the Walkers at the Trent House, and having downed a few delicious beverages they wobbled off to the next beer stop – cunningly managing to avoid any crossing of trails but also nearly losing 2 (newish) members at the Monument. Safely arriving at the ever massively cheap Five Swans more beers were downed, Hash Sab was lost and not found in the toilets ( despite vicious rumours spread by Pimp who erroneously told Misled he had definitely seen him there). A 500 yrd dash to the On inn  followed where by happy chance Counterfeit had arranged the circle drinks and a noisy circle presided by Mary Poppins took place.

LHJ’S 20 years of hashing

Run 1511 The Lonsdale, Jesmond

Hares LHJ and Ion Dick

Classic high quality action shot showcasing ‘The Grasshopper Lean’

A virgin hare from Ion Dick  last week who, map in hand, dilgently attempted to lead and follow a trail set by his co-hare LHJ earlier in the day ( when it wasn’t dark) for the longer r*nners. Special kudos for employing those skills to manage a large, noisy and wayward bunch of hashers along a trail he hadn’t set and didn’t know very well.

Leaving the Lonsdale and the W*lkers to the tender mercies of LHJ, hashers set off into Jesmond scattering the well heeled Jesmondians in their attempts to find flour. The trail led up and down Osbourne road , cunningly back tracking over the metro and off towards the Town Moor. Distracted by BM’s flow of talk, Psychedelic took a tumble but fortuantely no lasting harm was done. A further mile or two of crisscrossing back alleys and streets brought us to The Beer Stop at The Millstone to quench our thirst before scooting back up Matthew bank to the On Inn and circle to celebrate our triumphant return. We celebrated LHJ’s pedigree of hashing with some superb homemade cake and lashings of beer.

Thanks to the hares for a splendiferous hash
