WHERE’S WALLY PARTY

7th February 2015

This event was to celebrate Nobby achieving 1,000 Hashes; the first Hardy’s Hasher to reach this historic target. Nobby was an original Hardy’s Hasher. The picture below shows the inaugural Hash from the Bridge Inn on 6th June 1987.

The celebrations started at 3 pm with a Hash from the John Gregory pub at Southill.

Down! Downs! were held at the house of Bookend’s mum and dad - many thanks to them for allowing so many of us to eat and drink with them. In conversation BOF discovered that Bookend’s mum used to babysit BOF’s children in the 1970s and she also made Jim Jam’s prom dress - it’s a small world!

In the evening the “Where’s Wally?” - or “Where’s Nobby Party?” as it was renamed - got off to a tremendous time of fun, food, booze and dancing. Not forgetting (no matter how hard we tried!) Kipper’s jokes!

Nobby was unaware that he was the Guest of Honour and he was surprised and excited when he arrived to find the hall decorated in his honour.

ABO is given the “Get A Life” Award for doing the most Hashes in 2014. This was 46 Hashes. So, what was so important that he failed to get to the other six Hashes?

Boulders was awarded the “Crappiest Hash” Award. However, he was not at the party so a lookalike was chosen to accept the award on Boulders’ account. This was a very badly used toilet seat complete with real crap on the seat.

P2070087LR

Well done NOFI for being humiliated in Boulders’ absence.

P2070090LR

Clipboard and MUSCRAT were awarded the “International Travellers” Award

P2070094LR

Trying to save time by giving three Down! Downs! at the same time didn’t really work!

Clipboard had drink spilt all over her front and was overwhelmed by offers to lick it off.

P2070099LR

Des-de-Mona was given the “Lazy Bastard” Award for offering to set a Hash with Clapper but actually doing nothing.

P2070101LR

Bumblebee announced to the Hash that he has joined a religious cult which worships dildos. Here he prays for a miraculous genital enhancement.

On a recent Hash Gravelrash pushed a shopping trolley to do her week’s shopping between regroups. For this she was presented with her very own trolley.
