Run 1826 – Thursday 22nd April ~Northfields

Hare – Pope

Advance registration is required for all participants in West London H3 runs during the current pandemic, if you plan to come on this run please register ASAP using THIS LINK

This week’s run will start from outside Northfields Tube station on the Piccadilly Line Map Link. It will be a staggered start, without a bag drop, run with what you bring. Start window is slightly earlier than usual, start any time between 18.30 hours and 18.45 hours. There will be a drink stop on trail and also there will be after drinks at Ryans Bar, 282 Northfieds Avenue W5 4UB Map Link. This is not far from Northfields tube and will probably be better known to Hashers under its old name of Duffy’s. There is available seating for 24 people and the Hare will make a block booking of all of the available places once that number of people have register for the run. The Hare would like to confirm this arrangement with the pub at an early stage so please register ASAP, using the above link, if you are coming on this run. If the registrations exceed the booked places the available places will be allocated to those who registered first, so another reason to get in quick. The Plough pub, at 297 Northfield Avenue Map Link is close by and is a possible overflow venue, there is also a bench seat opposite Ryans where bought drinks can be consumed.

Thursday 9 April

We cannot of course hold any real Hash runs at the moment, but we will hold another virtual circle this Thursday evening at 20.30 hours . Click on This Link to join in the circle. The meeting will be open from 20.15 hours.

Our hare for the evening will be KMA.

Those of you who have not already installed the Zoom app on your device may wish to Install Zoom in advance, not strictly necessary but might save time on the night. Please observe the following points of etiquette for our Zoom circles.
  • Keep your microphone muted until you wish to speak, otherwise the call will be drowned out by a mush of background noise.
  • If an RA is in evidence, please wait until you are called on to respond before unmuting your mic.
  • If you wish to attract the RA’s attention use the ‘raise hand’ button in Zoom to indicate that you want to speak  (similar to placing your glass on your head in the Circle).
  • If you wish to make a particular point of order to the RA, use the chat feature in Zoom.
  • Seek permission from the RA or session administrator before sharing your screen with the group.

Run 1823, Pinner, 1st April 2021

After seemingly endless weeks of lockdown, nothing could beat the joy of West London Hashers getting back together again to run around the streets of Pinner, as envisioned by our hare, Mad Cow. Realising that most of us wanted to minimise the running aspects of the evening to concentrate on the drinking part, he thankfully provided us with a short (~6km) trail ending up near the park – which was already full of other groups of non-hashing drinkers. Being April Fool’s Day, we should have been prepared for some surprises, but it took some of us a while to realise that Mad Cow really had replaced his usual sumptuous gourmet drink stop buffet with a box of chocolates. Luckily there was plenty of beer to keep the socialising well lubricated, not that the assembled hashers needed much encouragement.

Photo challenge -Thursday 25 march

All West London runs continue to be suspended during the current National Lock Down. In the meanwhile we invite our members to do their own run, local to their home, at any time on Thursday, our normal run day, and take photos during their run to post on our Whatsapp chat group along a set theme. The Spring Equinox fell on Saturday, and Man Magnet has chosen this, together with all it’s pagan connotations, as the theme for this week’s photo challenge. There will not be be a Zoom Circle this week. We hope to resume real Hash runs again next week, on Thursday 1 April, with a trail in Pinner, hared by Mad Cow. In order to stay safe, and legal, the rules that we applied under the tier 2 restrictions will again apply, i.e. preregistration will required, no pub or bag drop and staggered starts in groups of not more than six.
