May 27th - 30th 2016
This was a fantastic weekend with great weather, an excellent site but, most of all, a lot of hard work which paid off in the thoroughly enjoyable entertainment and Hashing.
The location was beautiful and isolated with the very clear River Cerne running through the site.
SETTING UP AND ERECTIONS - TENTS THAT IS
Talking of which...
Right at the start of the weekend there was a terrible accident when BOF lost control of his Micra and plunged it into the tent belonging to Sonic and Bird Flu. They were inside at the time enjoying a little quiet recreational time together. She came rushing out shouting
“Wahoo!! The Earth really moved for us that time!!”
Luckily the damage to the tent was superficial.
Readying the “Down! Down!” bath.
Sonic was given a bum job to do!
Visitors from the Bogs of Somerset Hash
Honest John didn’t read the message “Hash Dress Code - Hillbilly Outfits Only”
Shirtlifter got it right - but then that’s what he always wears.
The Registration Gazebo
The Cycle Ride
They Are Off!
Bookend had to be rushed to the local A&E with a significant leg injury but was able to hobble around for the rest of the weekend getting lots of sympathy.
Preparing the ‘Down! Down!’ bath.
Down! Down! Beer was dispensed both through this teat and the udder one.
The Unlimited Moonshine Dispenser.
COTK was all ready for bed despite it being 4 o’clock in the afternoon.
Desdemoner tempted COTK out of her slumber but not out of her nightdress.
Bookend decided to go for a paddle in the river. The Environment Ministry immediately issued a Major Pollution Incident alert as dead fish were found floating all the way to Wareham.
Enjoying the Hog Roast and Thai Green Curry
The Hash markings are explained.
Half-Mad was Down! Downed! for something. It doesn’t matter what as long as he got his traditional beer at the start of every Hash!
“What do you mean you haven’t laid the Hash!”
“But I thought you were going to lay it!”
“I never agreed to that!”
The Hares cannot remember what all those markings mean.
In Tom Brown’s pub Dorchester
Sonic The Superhero!
This Hare is lost.
Little boys love playing in water!
The Midi on a Check Back.
Organgrinder is happy on the Midi.
The Hashers all met up at Poundbury Hill Fort where BOF was waiting with the picnic.
BOF takes a few seconds out to examine the insides of his eyelids.
Gravelrash’s ‘Bridge Of Death’
A Race To The Top!
Back at the camp site the Down! Downs! got under way.
Drinking from the cow’s udder was the punishment.
Hare ‘Bonely You’ dishes out the punishments
Organgrinder is flattered to feel something hard in her back until she realises it is Fishfinger’s knee!
Notice the curious wet patch on Organgrinder’s bum. Maybe that wasn’t Fishfinger’s knee after all?
A Hillbilly Dawg
Somebody mentioned ‘Golden Shower’ - what ever that is...
Here BOF shows how to do this trick after years of training.
Hare ‘Bonely You’ got very wet
Lurch told the story that Bumblebee was boasting about his film star career. Eventually he admitted that it was the back of his head seen in the advert for Walkers Crisps made in the 1990s! Watch it here and see if you can spot the instant Bumblebee won his BAFTA award!
SATURDAY EVENING PARTY
The theme was chosen to match our brilliant band “Freak Circus” - click here for details
‘Bonely You’ and ‘Only The Bonely’ are sharing a pair of jeans bought online from here where jeans up to 60 inches waist can be bought.
BOF was wearing his comedy strap-on fat stomach - if only!
Sonic gets down and dirty with Freak Circus.
Limbering up for the Sunday Hash.
This was a ‘Ladies Only Hash’ so men could only join in if wearing women’s clothing.
“Oooer! I’ve never stroked such a smooth bum cheek before!”
The Apple Bobbing Competition.
The Down! Downs!
Everyone do the ‘Chicken Song’!
Making the gravy from the pig roast bones.
An alligator was seen crawling over the nearby field so we took turns to shoot it with a long bow.
Nobody managed to hit and kill it so ERCO stamped it to death.
Drain simply cannot remember the last time he climbed into a bath with a beautiful girl wearing a black bra and drinking from a fake cow’s udder. Was it last month or the month before?
SUNDAY EVENING PARTY
‘Blazing Strings’ played for us but not before they were Down! Downed! for not turning up at a previous engagement for Hardy’s Hash.
The wine was served from two gallon jars.
Willy “accidentally” dropped her bag containing two identical plates. One broke but she instinctively knew that it was Kipper’s plate. Amazing!
The Big Cheeseboard
The Big Cheese
The Isle of Wight Hash GM made sure that Hardy’s RA got his just desserts.
Actually less like dessert - more like a huge amount of coleslaw
Next it was Buscock’s turn for the salad experience.
Next Bookend’s turn.
Clearing up and going home
Ready for the bonfire
BOF thanks everyone who provided photographs to share on this web page.
