After some confusion, here is the write up for the Lubrin 180th R*N

Having being volunteered to write this report I will ask people to bare with me and anyone not mentioned is to protect their innocence. Well that’s my excuse.
A select group of hashers arrived at our normal venue for Lubrin, bar Las Delicias for coffee and the normal pre hash banter, when I say select I mean 12 people and although the numbers were some what down on normal hashes, spirits were high with the air full of optimism about what lay ahead. The hares Two Hats and Prickly Tits provided the pre hash brief with the runners instructed to seek out flour makings with the normal 3 and you are on.
So off we went running through the picturesque streets of Lubrin, things seemed a little strange as we immediately came across the local protection civil I thought wow 12 hashers and Lubrin have really rolled out the red carpet for us, little did I know that Lubrin was also the venue for a major mountain bike race, however, we made our way through the streets of Lubrin waving to the crowds who waved back shouting out the name of the local Lubrin hero Two Hats who respectfully donned his cap to acknowledge their chants to him, I thought how great this was until Keyfob told me what they were really saying, as we shouted out On On the crowed returned what can only be described as a reply of something and off in spanish, so we obliged leaving Lubrin by firstly climbing up 126 steps for the trail to take us back down 67 steps. So into campo hashers Petal, Screw on the Loose, Keyfob, Over the Fence and our hare Two Hats, at this stage the flour makings we were initially told to seek out were excellent leading the hashers firstly up to a vantage point overlooking the town of Lubrin and then down a very tricky track in to the rambler which made any running an impossibility which suited Keyfob as he had been on a heavy session the night before. Petal went on walkabouts and despite the whistle and calls from the team he failed to return, however, like every good northeastern blood hound he returned to join the group. Probably the most impressive things about this hash was for Screw on the Loose to remain as the FRB his skill for spotting the trail was something we were all grateful for even Two Hats who repeatedly said “I can’t remember putting that mark there” and “there should be a check point here”, comments which left us all feeling like “are we lost and does Two Hats really know where we are”, he was only too quick to blame Prickly Tits stating, “Ay this part of trail was laid by Prickly Tits, you can’t trusted a women”. I must add at this point that this was actually a good hash despite the fact that there were very few marks to help us to identify the trail. So after nearly 2 gruelling hours we returned back to Lubrin, by shear luck and the endeavour of Petal, Screw on the Loose, Over the Fence, Keyfob and our master hare Two Hats (carrying a bag of flour !!!!, funny I thought you were supposed to lay the trail first??) we made it, arriving to the cheers and applause of our fellow hashers, however, they shouted out to us, “we are clapping the cyclists not you lot, we’ve been waiting for ages what kept you”, we promptly replied “our hare”, who trailed in some way behind us.
So perhaps in summary, a good trail , when you could find it, tricky and challenging with stunning scenery but most of all the banter and encouragement of Two Hats, I can still hear him now, “Prickly Tits laid this trail”, well done Two Hats leading from the back!!!.
Until our next hash I leave you with On On !!!
Keyfob, I haven’t added anything about the walkers or the circle I thought you might like to add something through Chris and yourself.
I hope this is what you wanted.
