Shameless promotion of FKN beer

The Beginning

A mystery hare agreed to set trail. The mystery was solved when Tighty Whitey revealed that he was, in fact, the hare. A special run to celebrate the surplus promotional FKN beer from the Golden Triangle cycling trip, recently completed.

Shiggy was promised, so the pack was forewarned to be ready of wet and muddy conditions.

The group assembled in the parking lot near the Hull’s Wood outdoor amphitheatre. TW had a bicycle which would appear to be what was used to set the trail!

A warm evening perfect for a Fish Creek run with a good sized group of 25 hashers.

PMS got the circle organized. Introduced the visitor from California (Shang Hiney), archives (Froggy) and other hash business.

The hare, Tighty Whitey, came into the circle to describe the scavenger hunt type of trail with beer rewards at a series of five crucial checks.

TW would follow on his bicycle because that is the way he planned it! The pack was released to find the trail markings.

The Trail

The views and terrain of Fish Creek Provincial Park did not disappoint. Marks were sufficient and spaced at a considerable distance. Off we went to find the first of the prizes, the beer hidden at the checks.

PMS was the first to find a hidden beer. Hardly was successful. PMS finds another! The lazy middle and back of the pack hashers did not have a chance with the fit fast hashers monopolizing the beer finding.

Apparently, TW had to foresight to collect these photos to show how hashers are easily lead astray by beer on trail.

Finally, all beers are found and it was time for the shoe wash.

Regroup and Down Downs

The outdoor amphitheater was where it all happened. Luxurious wooden benches and beer and snacks were a good lead up to the down down’s.

Hump the Shark appointed himself as Religious Advisor and selected a choir of On In and King Shit. There was much singing and rejoicing in the open air location. Chips and snacks added to the enjoyment.

There seemed to be endless down downs for a bunch of made up accusations and offences. PMS practices here own non verbal communication skills.

Eventually, we ran out of material and were declared to be “on the piss”.
