HASH-CAMRA is an annual get-together of the regional hashes in southern England (and is in its 14th. year), such it's now time to venture overseas to the IOW. There is a ‘Beer and Buses’ Festival on the island on Saturday and Sunday which is about 50 pubs running their own ‘mini festival’ with guest ales and vintage buses running a series of route between the pubs. We will join with the IOW Hash for a run on Sunday 14 Oct and enjoy the transport between pubs the rest of the weekend.

Before commencing, it's one rego' per person and it helps to know the proposed name of your chalet group and how you are travelling ... in what shared car etc ...

Option 1 – Weekend Away:

We have booked a number of chalets at Lower Hythe Holiday Park , Shanklin. We can add to the bookings as and when people sign up.
Each chalet is centrally heated with a kitchen, bathroom , lounge , a double bedroom and a twin bed room. Winchester Hash used the site in March (in the snow) and they were happy with the accommodation.
Each accommodation comes with a free ferry crossing for a car and 4 passengers.
Price Approx £35 per person (based on 4 people sharing and of the cost of the initial accommodation bookings)
- This includes a programme which gives you the bus timetables (this is the way that the buses can get some income ) and a discount on the beers (it appears if you drink 11 pints you move into profit)
- Ferries are with WrightLink Portsmouth to Fishborne and Lymington to Ryde. Please can you try and work out travel arrangements with like minded people.
- Please create your own group of 4 to an accommodation if possible
- We will assign accommodation to fill spaces so singles will share the twin rooms where possible
- Larger groups ? We can book caravans for up to 6 people if required
- This is intended to be a “at Cost” event if couples or families want accommodation for sole occupation it will be at booking price
- The reserved accommodation is on a first come first served basis and more can be booked subject to availability and prices may vary for later bookings.

You can book camping or camper van near to Lower Hythe. This is a DIY Option

Option 2 – Sunday:

IOW Hash Run from Hyth at 1100 - Come to the IOW on the Sunday morning in time for the Hash Run, participate in Beer and Buses and return to the North Island on the Sunday evening. Buses run from the ferry terminal and the Hash Run will be on/near a bus route or the railway.
Ferry – You will be making your own ferry arrangements so the cost depends on the route / method.
• There are historically cheap fares on this weekend (£10 return last year) on the Fast Cat or the Hovercraft
• Booking a train plus ferry as a combination is a good deal as well as avoiding her need to drive!
• You will be making your own travel arrangements however joining up with others for a 4 people traveling together train fare or group ferry bookings is recommended
