HILLBILLY 2 WEEKEND
Higher Kingcombe, Dorset
24th - 27th 2019
Pictures taken by BOF, Bendy, Spreadlegs, Honest John and Sex Slave
The venue was ideal for “Hillbilly 2 - Daisy’s Revenge”. Based on a beautiful fishing venue in central Dorset it offered everything needed for a great weekend with friends.
On the Friday evening we set off on a short run/walk over the hills which gave us amazing views of this wonderful part of England.

A huge number of awards were presented - unfortunately the ceremony took place in almost total darkness so few pictures could be taken.
The “Get A Life” Award went to Gravelrash for Hashing 79 times since the Thirtieth Birthday event meaning that she has hashed on over 80% of all possible opportunities.
ABO had attended the most Hashes - eighty - and Hared twelve times in the last two years; brilliant support from one of our favourite personalities. He was rewarded with a drink from a hospital urine bottle and a special award for all his hard work on behalf of Hardy’s Hash.
ERCO was awarded the “TWAT” Award for walking over the tables in a Plymouth restaurant scattering food and drink as well as breaking a table when it collapsed under his weight.,
L’Ass Over Tit and Cup Of Piss were jointly awarded the “Crappiest Hash” Award which had a dollop of real poo on the seat. Nice....
BOF was award the Hooperman Award for his work on the website and record keeping. This award was made to remember Bill (Hooperman) Hooper who died in 2008 aged 54 of a heart attack whilst cycling to a Hash at Burton Bradstock. He left a wife and two young children.
The Endurance Hash
The Main Hash was about nine miles long and the Mini was about seven miles - much longer than usual but well worth it to experience the rolling hills, the streams and the quaint villages with their thatched cottages.
The Hares - “Only The Bonely” and “Bonely You”.
Kipper and BOF striding out on a 7.6 mile ‘Mini’ which took 31/2 hours to complete. This was by far the longest Mini in Hardy’s Hash History. BOF lost three of his group within a mile of the start. He and Willy retraced their steps - eventually giving up not knowing that the lost Hashers were heading exactly in the opposite direction to where they should be going.
Then, after about five miles the rest of the Mini pissed off leaving BOF on his own wandering on the derelict Maiden Newton to West Bay railway track trying to find a way off to get to the pub at Powerstock - shambles!
The briefing - “It’s going to be very long and hard!”
Don’t mess with these guys!
Lurch’s trainers start to fall apart and had to be repaired by strapping laces around the toes.
Meanwhile, whilst the Main were back at the pub drinking the pub dry and eating the buffet lunch, the Mini were desperately trying to get Willy under a barbed wire fence.
“Careful - don’t damage the farmer’s fence with your head” urges Kipper thoughtfully.
When the Mini arrived at the car park where the Hares said they had set up a beer stop there was nothing to be found. Des-de-Mona was convinced that the beer was in a car and tried to smash his way in using a footpath marker post he had wrenched from the path.
Having found no beer in the wreckage of the car - which was clearly nothing to do with the Hash - we found the beer stop hidden in a wood. Alas, there was only one can of cider and a lot of softy drinks - the bastards on the Main had got there first.
After a 7.6 mile Mini BOF arrived back the pub only to find that the rest of the Mini had not arrived. “Serves them right for abandoning me on the railway line” he muttered into his beer.
Refuelling after the gruelling and thirst creating Hash.
The “Down Downs”
Sinners were made to drink directly from Daisy’s udder.
The Hares settle themselves in the HMS FECKIT GRETEL not knowing that they are about to be drenched by more than Daisy’s beer dispensing udder.
The Hares get a well-deserved drenching with a hosepipe.
“Praise be to the weather gods for sending us a nice day”
Kay was named “Comes Rarely”. Careful where you are pointing Bumble!
Des-de-Mona carried this highway marker post about five miles. What for?
BOF was Down! Downed! for losing some of the Mini and being abandoned by the rest. The marker post has become a new Hash Trophy.
Bendy is not very keen on her Down! Down!
Those gloves were necessary because of the corrosive Down! Downs! in the glasses.
The Hog Roast
(Vegetarians look away now)
Partying into the small hours
The “Cocktails and Twats” Bar did a roaring trade.

“A pint of Gin please Bumble!”

Kipper entertained us with jokes and a monologue.
The Hash Bash Cycle Ride
Psychedelic Leads The Exercising Ladies
This was a High Impact Interval Training session. BOF decided - wisely - not to join in.
The Raft Building Contest
Bumblebee tests the launching ramp.
Sadly this team had not noticed that the plans they were using was for a submarine and not a raft.
Fun And Games On And In The River
The evening got off to an hilarious start with a variety of games around the fishing ponds. First we had egg and spoon races. These was over a punishing bumpy route with gates to manoeuvre.
The Egg and Spoon Race underway.
There were fishermen and women around the ponds who had transported vast amounts of very expensive equipment so that they could sit all day staring at the water and catching nothing. Meanwhile, Kipper cauight this beautiful fish using a worm on a bent pin hanging from a string.
The egg and spoon race was followed by a three-legged race which was reduced to a shambles when the organisers were telling the runners opposite ways to run weaving around the trees.
The next games consisted of throwing bean bags into hoops. There was tiny bit of cheating going on here with hoops being moved and bean bags being caught and diverted in flight.
Then we had a plastic duck race down the River Hooke.
Our ducks were released into the River Hooke and we excited watched as they drifted towards a waiting Rosie downstream. Unfortunately, a well trained retriever dog jumped into the river, fished many out and dropped them on the far bank!
And the winner was - who cares! We all got a shot of liqueur for taking part.
The fancy dress theme for Sunday was Hawaiian
Fun And Games Indoors
The Hashers went all out - no expense spared - to celebrate Jim Jams’ birthday
Organgrinder introduced the game of Beer Pong and, if you click on the above picture, you can see her demonstrating her amazing skill at getting the ball in the mug. Use your browser BACK button to return here.
And so we eventually crawled to our beds and, after just an hour or so, it was breakfast time, clearing the site and pissing off home having enjoyed a really brilliant weekend.
Well done everyone who organised and helped .
