Goddards Brewery Tour 30th Sept: A slightly chaotic, but popular, run by the RA preceded our 2018 Brewery Tour. But, almost double-length for Peter, who failed to realise a check was outside the OnInn! And Jibs was up too for "excessive local knowledge". The impromptu Conker Champs were won with a skillful swipe by Ann - thanked again by the GM for the 35th Party in her "Millionaire House" - and became SlumDog! We were joined by Virgin Hashers, Rosie and puffing Brian of Ryde Harriers, alongside virgin 'runner', GottlaGeer. Then awards for "below-par" Snowman, "wounded" Bart, and "Painting the Town Purple" Sodders, whose old trail still fooled some. And finally to our Host, brewer Nigel; our Hare; and cheers for Oates on the excellent casserole.

It was TwistedSista's final boreal run this season, before she heads off to a warmer Cairns, in Australia, for 6 months. After the previous day's miserable drizzle, warm sunshine greeted the three dozen or so who met at Brading Station for the H#sh set by newly-named PussyFlap and Assistant. Their words of wisdom advised of dangerous animals, dangerous roads and "eight back on a Hook". En route there was a great deal of 'huke abuse' so Winalot and Busty paid the penalty in DDs. GottlaGeer's return to form as a runner last week, proved to be short-lived but Gnasher, returned from her holly daze stood in as a R#nner. Back at the Wheatsheaf, it seemed that they had forgotten we were to be there this week. Nevertheless, we gathered under the outside canopy to talk and drink. SlumDog realised she had been fortunate to have been named the previous week, as she confessed to a possible 'Tena moment' in the pre-run preamble. Chips's eagerness to show off her new bike, (I can now keep up with PitStop), meant that she collected a DD, as did Lippy, for accepting a seat on public transport, offered to the old gent by a polite young individual. ShortHorn, fresh from his transatlantic Father of the Bride duties stepped forward, accompanied by Fracas, who had upbraided him for driving to the Pub from the Station. EyeTie's eschewing of Haberdashery meant that he was called to the DD circle, flanked by C+CH3 visitors, Harpist and D.I.Y. The Hares were thanked for their fine trail. Though co-hare Jibber's dubious tactics (laying the trail behind, rather than ahead of the pack) more than justified his DD, they did nothing to detract from the freely-proffered praise for the trail in which slow and faster runners met on several occasions. These were preceded by DDs for our hostesses, Kayleigh ("Thanks for the Jägerbomb") and Hayley ("What do you mean, No sandwiches? – there they are! Kazzzamm!"). Many thanks to the Pub for their customary and exceptional generosity.
