RUN Report #949 – The first Virtual Beerstop?

Hares: Cumalot/Heavy Pants. And Pilchard!

RUN Report #949

Cumalot had convoked us to a COVID compliant hash  starting in the St Philippe casino carpark at what3words  primary.shelf.waffled – we could have been a couple of metres away at screeches.tomcat.warblers which might have been more interesting. It was a huge carpark where I found Philippe looking lonely but he said it was the right place. Eventually  we were joined by others returning from positioning the beer car. A cold overcast  morning (but of course it never rains on the hash), we were 9 and so complied with the 10 person group limit- we waited a bit for Buns who had registered  but had not arrived  in  time  and then  decided to start, leaving the hares  to lay extra flour for her to follow  in case she turned up.

It looks nothing like him!

The runners set off- 2 hares and Supermarket Trolley. The rest of us walkers went with Cumalot   onto the bus/tram road. The French postmodernist thinkers in the administration have declared the new bus/tram to be a tram, so it’s a tram, but in fact it is just a bus. Has anyone used it? Does it have any features of a tram such a bells and musical jungles? Well we didn’t see it although Cumalot said there was a frequent service.

After 5 minutes FartyBum announced that she would not be getting Shit of the Week this time – then  decided to check if she had the keys for the beer car- she searched through her bag a couple of times then remembered she had left them in her other bag which she had left in Supermarket Trolley’s car. No point in going back as SMT would be miles away  on the runners’ trail-so we just went on knowing there would be no beer  and that the runners wouldn’t know that.

This is where Farty Bum was 10 mins into the Walk

The terrain was very up and down taking us to a stream which must join up with La Brague and here was a tricky set of stepping stones helped by an old pallet in the middle of the stream- I think we all managed to cross without incident. The rain was holding off and the tracks were not too muddy but  potentially dodgy  on the slippery paths with rocky traps and  nasty drops on the side.

Soon we reached the beercar- but no key/no beer. There is supposed to be a spare key hidden somewhere, but FartyBum didn’t remember where (we have had this problem before – we must ask Mad Max to show someone where it is). So we just waited for the runners to arrive- quite a long time- Cumalot said the walkers went too fast and that the runners had a long trail 7.7km checking out all the falsies as the hares couldn’t remember what the correct trail was.

A good meme is worth repeating

Of course there were stories about placing the beer car. The marked parking places had been  full  so FB had decided to park on the grass; however, due to the mud, the wheels just spun around-FB couldn’t cope so Pilchard had volunteered to take over the driving and find a better place  and in order to  manoeuvre asked  FB  where was reverse on the gear stick- FB said she didn’t know whether it was up or down, in or out  or push or pull. Pilchard using  tank driving experience managed to move the car to a better position.

Its good to have Pilchard back!

Back at the start the beers soon arrived as well as crisps and peanuts Cumalot was offering doughnuts. A short circle was  held.

After the beerstop the journey home was announced as being fairly short. SMT and FartyBum set off early to  rescue the car keys and the beercar. The rest of us strolled back past a housing development with the appalling name of….

Biotifull!!!!

Down downs for

The hares– Cumalot, Heavy Pants and Pilchard (now the perpetual co-hare)

Farty Bum– for forgetting how to drive in reverse.

Philippe in honour of the start at St Philippe

Heavy Pants for  forgetting where the right trail was at the check

Pilchard– for fouling the trail

Shit of the week nominations for- Prestressed ( Heavy Pants as stand-in) for proposing Cumalot as Hare and not turning up

And we voted for FartyBum for the obvious offence.

Due to COVID the weather wasn’t right for continuing with a picnic so we went home to meet up later in the day on a Zoom hash.

OnOn!

After not being able to go to the bar for 6 month, home entertaining has become popular

HHHi all,

We are back again! Again.

We will have another run/walk next Sunday, 10th January, but strictly following the lock down rules/guidelines etc. 


Apparently, no more than 10 people allowed to meet up so conform to the law (?) please sign up as in previous semi-lockdown Hashes

Click Here to Register

We will then email you the location/time of the Hash, when we know when/where it is.

Probably in the Biot/Sophia Antipolis area around 11:00 but lets see.

And no Restaurant again, bring food if you like and the weather does not look too bad.

If you haven’t registered and you mysteriously turn up, we can’t accept you without risking the whole event being cancelled,  sorry…

It could be worse, you could be in the UK and sex (with other people) is now discouraged…

‘Your best sexual partner is yourself’

Who knew?

OnOn!

Hhhi all,

First I should say HAPPY NEW YEAR!

CRAPPY NEW YEAR!

or more inventively in tribute to the face masks which ‘stop’ the virus…

NAPPY… YOU HERE!

Anyway… we have decided to continue the virtual Hash since we are all so locked down during the week.

So please join on the link below as normal, please note that due to the new 18:00 curfew in 06, the start has been delayed by 1 hour to 18:30 France/17:30 UK
