Hash #752

Redwood Regional Park; Canyon Meadow Staging Area

When: Sunday, July 11, 2010 - 1:00 PM
Hare(s): Lick It Off & Magoo
Details: Bastille Day Hash

Hares Lick It Off and her faithful lesser-half Magoo celebrate 1 year of
hashing with the east bay and Lick It Off's French superiority....

Bastille Day celebrates the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison and
the symbol of the uprising of the modern French nation. Well there will be
no storming of any fortress on this run but there might be some storming of
the hill to get to the beer.

The Eagle Trail will be long and have a number of climbs but much of which
is nicely shaded.

The Turkey Trail will also be long (for a turkey trail) but the first half
will be all shade and the second half will be flat and then downhill. So
put a little work into it and then have an easy finish.

If you have any complaints go find someone that cares or show me how it
should be done, by setting your own trail. See how I am already hare
raising.

For those true hashers that are not afraid of a little hill, there might be
some French inspired food and drink available after the circle.

This trail is dog friendly (on a leash) but stroller un-friendly (unless,
as described by FOS recently, you are a he-man). There is a playground and
lots of open space for kids to run around so bring a blanket and hang out
with the rug-rats.
