RUN NO. 2521 LUCKY GARDENS 13DEC16

RUN NO. 2521
DATE: 13 DEC 2016
SITE: LUCKY GARDENS
Front horn: Yogi Beer
Back horn: Icy Bitch

We all arrived in our hoards, for the time of year, for a perfect runner's run in Lucky Gardens but it may need renaming " Unlucky gardens" as once again, the second check was tampered with prior to the arrival of the front runners. More about that later.

Off we set to the loud parp of the real horn. We hit the moonscape and then went in on the left to soon find our first check. After a good hunt, Welsh Chloe found the on paper at the top of a hill. Good work fellow Welshie! Good calling from all hares during the check.

As mentioned previously, the beautiful undulating run, which we were all thoroughly enjoying, suddenly became a conundrum. What seemed like a check behind a big, rotund tree was missing the tell tale plastic bag with paper inside! All that remained were 4 pieces in a sort of circle. Whoever the perpetrator was then scattered the paper on the trail very sparsely, so we kept going until we hit the T junction that took us towards the fence! You know where I mean! 

Decision was made to made an about turn, once all hares returned from thorough checking of course, and Patsy called the connaissant Pee Wee to solve the mystery. 

In due course, the on paper was found thanks to Footloose and Patsy, with huge sighs of relief, happily we trotted home. Well, nearly! A rickety old bridge decided enough was enough and poor Icy Bitch took the brunt of it and ended up trapped waist high in water! LMG bravely came to the rescue, entering the water and lifting away the obstructing log. Phew!! Thank you so much Rachael! You are a 🌟.

As night fell, the last of the hens sortied the jungle and we happily headed off to Rachel's  (a different Rachel to Rescue Rachael!) most beautiful abode. Some swam, some just relaxed with a cold one as a fine evening ensued. Delicious food at the shout up. A reminder about Xmas arrangements for next week, namely to enjoy some Secret Santa 🎅 fun should you wish and bring a nibble if you can. Turkey will be proved courtesy of the Hash.
