Hash #811 Softwood's Birthday Hash
Thank you very much to all 400 of you. I had a great day. The hangover tells me so. The venue was so well organised and ready we all kept thinking something had to wrong. Thankfully it did not. The trails were, as I had mentioned, a bit disjointed but I do not think anyone really bothered. We had a few that did not sign back in....They will in the future. Then we learned of Kim Mitchell, who had hashed for over two years and had avoided the de-virginising ceremony all that time. We put that right and now you can call her "Like A Virgin"
The DJ got a big build up and I have to say he lived up to that billing tremendously. Thanks Jerry Bascombe great job.
Then it was time to hand the Big Bamboo over to Simon "Christopher Columbus" Clay I know he will do a great job especially if you support him half as well as you did me. I did get a chance to say thanks to most of you personally if I missed you out I'm sorry and do not take it personally.
To those who could not make it Thanks your support means a lot. To the team that has helped me over the last three years thank you. Without your help I could not have done it.
Finally to by wonderful wife Jackie, I know exactly what you have done for me and for Grenada Hash House Harriers. I thank you with all my heart.
Next week "Hopeless" is taking us back to Woodford or should I say 500yds after the dump!!! I think he is making an early claim to retain his title of Hash Shit of the Year.
I'm off to the beach to relax whatever you are up to enjoy and take the satisfaction you have been part of three epic years. ON ON !!
