Hot Hash News 1544 – Only a week later than planned! – 27 Mar 2019

The Wheatsheaf, Palmersville 

Hares: Woofers, Counterfeit and LHJ  

Last week’s hash was from the Wheatsheaf pub in sunny Palmersville, the hares  instructing  our newest virgin with the ways of the floury markers we have grown so used to on our Wednesday evenings.  7pm came and went as the last rays of the setting sun slid over the horizon on the final dark night hash of the year.  Headlights were switched to ‘go’ and the hash set off into the path of incoming traffic before turning into the side of the Rising Sun car park.  As the bright lights of Asda glowed alluringly in the night, the hash headed away into the park proper to start their own ‘park run’.    A new trail around some of the outer wetlands was a surprise for those who were familiar with the park and a cunning route timing by the hares ensured  the short and long runners met up for a hash flash ( see below)


Spot the hasher – last crystal clear night time photo shoot of 2019 -The hash view from the top of the park is always phenomenal especially on calm evenings, though it sadly remained uncaptured on camera, although given the state of the above photo, we haven’t missed out much by not including it here. Pausing to admire the view, spot Penshaw ( which isn’t being removed to Beamish – just in case you heard the news on Monday 1st) the hash descended the slopes to Palmersville.A quick stop in the local playground with strict instructions to play on 2 items of equipment whiled away a happy 5 minutes especially when a zipwire  was discovered. A beer stop at LHJ’s and Dyson was a triumph, noticeably for the amazing home cooked food and beverages available. Downing  scones and Guiness cake, the hash waddled back to pub, where Counterfeit had thoughtfully placed a number of FRB’s to slow us down even further. An uproarious  circle in the car park followed led by BM riffing with the usual suspects, but since time waits for no man or woman the pub called us indoors.

 Thanks to the hares and to LHJ and Dyson for their efforts – a class evening
