May 2019: Some of you may have been aware of a 'slight' website issue this month. Thanks to the expert assistance of Flour Power and Drop Off it was re-located and back and running again in three days. Massive thanks to you both for your help, especially at such short notice.

Several weekend events have been added to the Diary this month, however I have not been sent the specifics so they do not appear in the Notices. Contact the relevant hashes for detail.

I have been considering a change in the way the Diary is presented for sometime, taking advice from various hashers around the patch. If you actually print The Diary, I'd be interested to know as a change may see it being withdrawn, or at least not be available in this format.

You'll have read previously of Rambo's recent illness and ongoing rehabilitation, and you may also have been aware of the work he did organise the Salcombe Marathon. The formal event is currently on-hold, but Wide Receiver is missing it so much hes going to give it a go anyway! Raising money for CALM, hes extended an invite to like-minded souls to join him. See below for more details.

Wigwam has decided to pass on the reigns of the Gispert Gallop, should anyone wish to take them on, and Isca are back with the Roman Awayday. Also Ashburton have a Wild West themed evening next month. I'm sure there will be more to follow!

I've been asked to draw your attention to the Dartmoor National Park's policy regarding 'events' on the moors. Whilst accepting that hashing is not the same as say, Ten Tors, they do require notice and advice if there are to be more than 50 participants. Also, there are 'out of bounds' areas due to ground nesting birds for some of the year. These are also detailed from links on our homepage. Please circulate this information if your pack uses Dartmoor.

The National Trust are reinforcing the need to request access to their land, and have asked us again to give them as much notice of an intended hash as we can. This is nothing new. The Diary has always carried their contact number, however insurance and risk assesments have also been requested. Talks are in progress and more information has been requested to provide comprehensive guide on our website. I encourage all hare masters to make themselves aware of the detail, and revisit to review updates.

Have your future events added to the Diary and Notices for maximum publicity - and of course, keep an eye on them yourselves. If you've never been on a hash weekend before, do it this year! Loads of effort goes into making a fun weekend that'll wash away the work day blues!

If you're a visitor to our region, there's always loads going on down here so just check out the 'Diary' and the 'Notices' to see for yourself!

If there's anything you'd like to see here - ideas for additional content, new links or even corrections - please let me know and I'll do my best to oblige.

On-on, Buzby
