London Fag shows the marks that will be used on-trail.

Flour blobs mark the trail as usual, BC = Beer check, BN = Beer near, Union Jack = normal check,

The gender symbols mean male only and female only checks.


Hashers listening attentively to the chalk talk (well in this case, flour talk)


The walkers set off (Including Mad Dog, Doggie Style, Krazie Puppy & Sevi)

The hasher's bags have been unloaded from the Sag Wagon (and laid out on the grass) and runners and walkers are still arriving.

Food tables have been set up by the hares. More hashers have turned up than expected.



A cowboy rides by. Most cowboys are actually black these days.
