Sorry it’s late, boys and girls… crazy week!!
Okay – this hash shall be known hereafter as the “Damp Hash”.
Just 11 intrepid hashers arrived for Run 179 – Albox at La Parrilla in Albox. Apparently a bit of drizzle is too much for hairdos and makeup – and that’s just for the fellas! But among those were two virgin hares, Ben (who had been accosted by Puff at the gym) and Annie who had travelled down from Andorra and came along with Mojacar’s Kay Kay.
But arrive we did, and we soon set off along the rambla, after a couple of us went to pay our respects in the newly refurbished town church. Oops, I mean after a couple of us went to poke our heads around the door to be nosey.
The runners caused some amusement, hunting frantically for the marks which had been left in green paint and craftily hidden among foliage – Ooh Screw on The Loose, you kidder you. The walkers, ably led by Flat Note, took a more leisurely pace along the rambla, being edumacated all the way by Norman Bates who has metamorphosed into a butterfly… I mean a “font of all knowledge”.
A short stop was had by the walkers at the fuente where we all laughed at the bra and nylons draped over the bushes while one or two hashers photographed it for posterity. They shall remain nameless. Oh okay then, it was Kay Kay and Slot Machine.
Back to the car park behind La Parrilla we all headed, where the closing circle was formed and the following down downs ably dished out by the RA – Two ‘Ats.
- Screw on The Loose and Flat Note for being rubbish hares.
- Ben and Annie for being virgins.
- Annie again for not removing her head-ware when entering the circle.
- All the walkers but I can’t remember what for. Short-cutting maybe?
- Annie (again, poor love) again and Flat Note for using technology on the hash.
- Puff for NOT watering the campo, therefore confusing everyone
- Norman for sneaking off between the end of the hash and the start of the circle to God knows where.
There is one person, however, who seems to be escaping the down-downs recently… and that is Jackless. Personally I think he should be brought into the circle next time for being too well behaved… and should continue this at every hash until he has learned to follow the rules. You know, those rules that don’t exist and that we make up for the hell of it.
After the circle closed and we sang yet another song because Kay Kay started stamping her feet in protest, we headed back to La Parrilla for drinks, tapas and intellectual conversation (cough).

If you haven’t paid for you Christmas bash yet… why not! Money is now overdue. It’s now only €35 (could be €34) per couple full board… or maybe it’s all inclusive… or perhaps half board. I dunno – I’m not going so I didn’t listen properly.
Loads of haberdashery available including some super hoodies for these wintery hashes that are coming up. They come in marl grey and a variety of sizes including large, large and large.
Over and out, Slot Machine x
