July 28: Reservoir slog with Rotten Groton

This just in …

Join us this Saturday for our 5th running. . .a ramble through the woods and shiggy-filled trails of Groton. There’s nothing like a floundering about on the trails near the reservoir with one (maybe two beer checks) to make a person truly fall in love with coastal New England.

HARE: Little Hummer Boy

WHEN: Saturday, July 28th, 2012 @3:00pm

WHERE: Copp Family Park (If you put 821 Gold Star Highway in your GPS, you should be good). We’re parking in the lot at the park entrance

STROLLER-ABLE? not unless you have strong arms and a patient baby

DOG-ABLE? YES!!!!! (Copp is home to the Groton’s dog park so you can even sneak in some off leash time for the puppy).

BRING: $5, whistle, drinking vessel, change of clothes for poison ivy, bug spray (we’re near water. . .looooooots of bugs), tick gear

ON AFTER? Seven Seas Pizza (they have beer. . .just sayin’)

  • Take I-95 South
  • Take exit 88

GET THERE FROM POINTS SOUTH

  • Take I-95 North towards Groton.

7-23 Hash Recap

NHH3 Hasher Hentai Me Down reports Saturday’s New Haven hash was a success, although he managed to scare off yet another virgin. (This is becoming a problem.) Once again, our friends Handjob and Little Hummer Boy from Rotten Groton deserve a shout-out for driving down from New London in a show of support. These are classy folks, and therefore miserable failures as hashers, and they will be made to drink for their sins.

Face down in Vermont

Just thought I’d pass this along …

Hello! This is Julia from the Woodbridge Running Company. I would like to inform you and invite you to an event we are hosting- the FIRST ANNUAL CHRISTMAS IN JULY Pub “Run will be at Christopher Martins on Monday July 23

We will run a total of 2.78mile loop through the East Rock neighborhood making “Hydration/beverage stops” Dempsey’s, Anna Liffey’s, Christy’s and O’tooles. Christmas themed costumes are ENCOURAGED.

$5 to participate and all proceeds will benefit the Toys for Tots fund. Registration will be open from 5:30-6:30pm on Monday the 23rd, no need to preregister. There will a “post race” party/raffle with gift certificates to the participating businesses after the “run” at Christopher Martins. Similar festivities to their December 5k are not expected at this time…but wouldn’t be discouraged.

7/7 Run Details Announced: Craven in ‘Staven

This just in from Tap that Teacher, who finally took a break from her globetrotting long enough to give us details of the next hash.

OK, got it, finally, I know, I know. I guess I’ll just have to drink for my last-minuteness.

Meet at 2:00pm East Haven, McDermott Chevrolet parking lot, just off I-95N, in front of Crown Billiards. Hash Cash $5. Trail A-A, 4-5 miles. Walker trail on demand, email me if needed. One beer check w/AC. Shiggy and pavement, not stroller friendly. Sorry, not enough energy to even make it sound good. 😛

By the way, the hareline got a little bit screwed up in the transition to the new website. I think this is Run 104, but if anyone knows different
