Standard JRH3 blessing

(Basic Hash Trash)
GRC & Dab were ther hares, Rectal Room Mate was the FRB, Just Maxx was the FBI and Just Dana won the Brainless Award.
Hash Trash (Expanded Hash Trash or map of trail)
We got a decent crowd considering it was a rainy day all over the metro area. It rained 3 times while the hares were setting trail so they wound up just making it an "on hare" trail. Surprisingly though, many of the marks were still there and the pack might have been able to follow it without the hares leading and sweeping the way. Of particular interest was the crossing of the Clearwater Memorial Causeway. On the way over, the pack all got screwed as the exit ramp for bicycle and pedestrians was a giant corkscrew.
