The hares – Jobsworth and Padre

Meet at 10h00 for 10h30

Venue – Sophiatech, just a 3 minute drive from the Antibes A8 exit


Having not attended the hash since, well, last setting one, Jobsworth has happily accepted the offer of Padre to co-hare. Given that there is unfinished business in the ever receding forests behind Antibes, that his knees are destroyed by too much vertical ascent over the last month and that he only returned to the Riviera on Sunday, the start point will be identical to the one for the hash he set in July. As will the restaurant, which to be fair is not a bad little all you can eat Asian buffet. However, the trail will be very different to the last, so no fear of repetition.

Coming from the east, exit A8 at Antibes. Take the new slip road at the exit marked d535 towards Sophia & Biot. Follow the d535 down the dip & back up the other side (past the legendary Pedo beerstop) for about 1km until you come to a roundabout named “Carrefour Sophia Tech”. Turn left at this roundabout towards “Campus Sophiatech” & park along the road wherever you see hashers.

Same as above coming from the West but with an extra need for vigilance. When you come off the A8, follow signs towards Biot & then to Nice back on the A8. When you are by the entrance to the autoroute signposted Nice, do not go back on but straight up the d535 towards Biot. Directions as above – 1.2km to the roundabout (named  Carrefour Sophia Tech) after the dip & turn left following the “Campus Sophiatech signs” & park with the other hashers.

If you are planning coming in any direction that will first take you through Sophia Antipolis, don’t do it. You will be lost in the maze of roundabouts for the rest of eternity & I really do not have a sharp enough mind to explain how to navigate there. Just take the instructions from the Antibes A8 exit and you will be fine. It is a 3 minute drive from there.

If you have any problems, call Jobsworth on 0607938501.
