Hills Hashers Cause A Stir In The Neighbourhood ……. !

As we had the usual Valentine’s Day (linger longer ….)  lingerie run, the brave Hare GPS, had a great venue with maximum exposure (Ha ! Ha !) for the world to see the madness we get up to on these runs.
It was a very well marked run/ walk !
Mostly a good walk – there and back but … (as in Fawlty Towers) – done in two very different ways ! …. DOWN the road on one side and UP the road on the other side ! Ingenious of the Hare to think of that … ?
Of course there was a delectable drink stop with all the trappings of cocktail potential and pink beer … Yes … * PINK*  beer cos it was a Valentine’s Day moment …
To be honest the boys went all out to be GORGEOUS and of course caused quite a stir on the trail, … some passersby having to take a second look and some having to truly support the boys in frocks (so to speak) I am nearly in tears thinking how we may have helped some guys to just be themselves …. but digressing …
The whole pack got back in tact !! (Har … Har) and we had a great circle ending with a prize for best dressed Harriette and Harrier ! Those see-through flares were just amazing and the sexy looking gals were super …. Well done …

The Run That Launched A Thousand Slips !

Well, young Skippy did splendid job setting this run. As it was in Darlington, we knew there were no hills or GRAVEL ! True to form, he set the runners off on a merry dance with the AMAZING incentive of not one but TWO drink stops ! – Not so lucky for the walkers – only one !
An early bit of advice (from the Hare) helped the blind lead the lame on a shortish-cut ( of all of 5 minutes … well I ask you … ?) Slipping and sliding was still the order of the day … mostly down hill for ages. We heard the horn a bit here and there (mostly way over there) and eventually arrived at drink stop number 1 with MAGNIFICENT views.  We really needed the refreshments as it was a hot day. Revived and refreshed, we sped on to the finish but where there is a downward spiral … there is an upward trudge … and trudge it was … up, up, and away ! The trail was soooo narrow on occasion, you’d think it was a roo trail !
Back at the start, we waited a while for the runners  (apparently, the second drink stop was worth it …. !) So,  the circle was called and all parties who had short-cutted, fallen over, skidded and slipped were duly fined. The Hare won accolades for a good run (Doh…  !) & Pink Bits was awarded a foot for 400 runs (really … get a life !) another great Hills Hash Run bites the dust …..

G’Day from Glen Forrest!

A fine day it was to be running from Glen Forrest, probably Hills Hash most popular location at Morgan John Morgan park. Run number 1850 (getting up there in numbers aren’t we!) The hares led us an a medley of old and new streets, trails and back alleys culminating in a drink stop under the watchful eyes of a few fenced in guard dogs. Back to the start to enjoy some cold beer accompanied with a birthday cake (Dripper at 58?). The circle welcomed new runner Suesara along  with a few On Down’s for accomplishments and misdemeanors.  On On to a BBQ


Till next week

ANTZ in Your Pantzs …. or …. She ‘Aint Heavy, … She’s My Daughter …..

It was HOT … the weather was hot, the day was hot, the teeny bit of shade was hot and the ants were aplenty ! It was a spectacular view though !
We assembled at the start and did the *Watusi* and other stamping dances while waiting for the GM & RA who had some * sparking*  issues.
When they arrived, the Hare (P M) gave us instructions, said there was a drink stop and warned that if we thought the ants were bad now, wait till we were on trail. HE WAS SO RIGHT ! They were big, so  B I G  and many ….MANY MANY …all over the place so you could not help but keep moving. As the heat was still intense at this time of day, walkers were dousing themselves with water and turning funny shades of red. The trail went up and up (gently – said the Hare) mostly without shade …but the views were good ! We loved the views … they were everywhere …just like the ants so not time to stop and admire !
Miraculously, the drink stop appeared and it was on a rock …. NOT covered with ants so the walkers sojourned a bit, mostly to drop the heart rates …no sign of runners but then rumours start to go round as to who was lost, who was lost with whom, and such. All was well though (no-one was lost …) … the runners did arrive in dribs and drabs, and sucked on the last drop of water & other fluids …
Then a mere 25 kilometres later, (a bit of an exaggeration …) we were at the end and back to the splendid view !
As most Hashers arrived back the decision was made to not remain in that area for Nosh but to travel a mere short distance to a lovely grassy area with a lake and playground for the littlies …. joy – bliss !!! no ants …….  so we could eat in comfort.
The circle called (it was getting late due to late start and all the late arrivals) the Hare quite rightly got super fined for the ANTS but commended on the splendour of the run. The RA was fined for the battery* sparky* issue, there were fines for talking, being a long time no-see, for gardening on the run (!) and, most impressively, for picking up a lady driver for a lift (You scoundrel Maddona !)
Then we ate and enjoyed the cooling breezes …… Did I mention it had been very hot …!

Decadent Desserts At Birthday Bash ! or Won’t You Come Home Bill Bailey

Stop Press …… it was THE event of this year !
Ominous clouds of smoke were up in the sky due to a serious bush fire in the area, but it would not stop the Hash run going ahead. We were celebrating Leapfrog’s Birthday so, as usual, it would be a ‘Just Desserts’ theme.
The Hares promised a short run, with trails for both runners and walkers. They lived up to their promises and the trails were very well marked. We meandered around local reserves (sometimes being harassed by L A R G E  dogs ! …. or was it their owners … ?) and leafy back streets. There are no hills in the hills …..
There were a few spatters of rain but nothing could dampen our enthusiasm as we returned to the start. The circle called, we had good remarks about the run and trail (a few disgruntled runners complained a bit but were soon shot ….. shot down I meant !)
Then after some charges and amazing down – downs of G I A N T marshies and Bill’s ….. 🙂 we got on with the feasting and celebrating with a H U G E sugar overload that had Hashers going home climbing walls ! Just like kids ……..

NOT LOST & ON TRAIL …SO THERE ! (or Don’t Lose The RA’s Child :(

Great afternoon to have a run … a goodly group descended on Kalamunda with weather warm. The Hare’s Wacuda & DOSH had slaved setting a great run (but not too long ? ? ? ) and were excited to mention there was a drink stop !
Setting off, we were soon seeing the back end of the runners so they must have been very nimble. The trail was in shade for the greater part of the run so very nice indeed. Coming up the rear, yours truly accompanied a young Spot – On, were  directed to an alternative path that took up the trail of multitudinous W’s. Great we thought, but probably missed the drink stop. Never mind, we will get some refreshments back at the start …. All this time we were not aware that the RA was somewhat frantically searching for us as we had not appeared at the DS. Next, all the fit and healthy runners (and there were one or two …) were mobilised to send out a search party. Phone calls were made (had mine on silent ! Hmmm …..) until we appeared at the start somewhat bemused by all the fuss We had had an adventure that was not a worry to us ….. and NO we did not hear  the Hash Horn.
Parent and child re-united, the stress diffused, we had a lovely circle that had numerous down – downs and charges but they escape me ! (obviously I got one !)
Exhausted  ….. .On – On

New Year’s Eve News Flash

A select group of hashers gathered on New Year’s Eve at Helena Valley Rd. to draw a line through 2017. The Hare, Teflon Toddler, was apparently enjoying an afternoon nap which required Dripper to sail forth and set a trail with the help Skimpy. No sure what help he was as later on during the run he had no idea where the trail went. We were obliged to follow white micro-dots of flour placed on white sand through the bushland of Cedar Woods new property development. As you can imagine it was slow going! All made it back safe and sound and thirsty for some New Year’s Eve refreshments. We welcomed a new family of runners and walkers Andy & Oliver, Nerrida & Saffron from Parkerville and hope they will return soon. There was a welcome back for Biggus Dickus and Hawkeye from Pattaya. Rock Bottom & Crusher were charged for drinking their own champagne instead of hash piss. A fitting end to year 2017 and hopefully everyone’s New Year resolution is to run more Hills Hash Runs and set more vigorous trails.

Another Christmas Party … ?

Yes well, Hills Hash love a party so on Christmas Eve, those who need to get a life,  got together for a run and shindig !
There weren’t many of us (boutique !) but it was scalding hot so we all hoped for a short trail. Some of us could not manage it, some strolled and some actually ran. Trail was well marked by P M, of course, and had everyone back fairly quickly. We had a few refreshing beverages and a good deal of friendship.
We even had a delicious meal of traditional Christmas Chilli-con-Carne, nice and spicy on this hot day ! Thanks P M for your hospitality ……
Happy New Year to everyone  ?  ?

Parties, Movies, Everything ….. !

Parties, Movies, Everything ….. !

Let it rain, Let it rain, Let it rain ?   ? ?  ? was definately the theme of the day. So, only a small brave bunch of Hashers fronted up for our grand Christmas Party. This was to be a celebration of Hashing, feasting and movie-going. The ever vigilant R A ?  (had been doing her *Dance of 7 Raincoats* but sadly,  in the wrong order !  (put them ON not OFF)
Still, the run went very well with only a couple of showers to dampen down runners and walkers. As promised, it was a short trail so we were all back, quickly putting Plan B into place and not a moment too soon ! We scuttled over to a lovely sheltered spot close by and commenced the festivities. Not daunted by the ominous sky (oh.. look ! a bit of blue sky over there –> !) we got stuck into a feast of goodies with a warm glow (well there was not much else warm ….) of cameraderie. By now, there were a few Hashers who had called it quits and the pack was dwindling down to a mere 7 (similar to the 7 raincoats DOSH !?) It was with a heavy heart we had to speak with the movie man and state the obvious …. there were not many who wanted to sit through the movie in the rain/storm/hurricane winds (except the R A, still defiant at the weather ….)
So, as the shelter resembled Noah’s Ark with the water rising alarmingly and surrounding us, we packed up our bats and balls and went home ! We were fully fed-up and replete …it had been good …. we was happy (hic)

Train-ing Excercise …….

So, huddling closely in tiny carpark and surround, we managed to accommodate quite a decent group for this week’s run.
The Hare’s, Skippy and Pink Bits, indicated that there were many, many hills in this part of Hazelmere and that we needed to take heed of cars, buses and trains. Both runners and walkers set off in the same direction ( however, not to meet again till the drink stop !)
It was a hot day and therefore the run/walk was long (obviously) and had a few nearly expiring but everyone got to the drink stop for a few refreshing beverages and sweeties.
It cannot be said that everyone got back at the same time as, (sigh) Team Leapfrog had a bit of a loose-lip problem and  *EVENTUALLY*  (keep that word in mind !) came from the wrong direction.
In the circle, ther were some fines from the stand-in RA but thankfully not too many. Once the formalities were over, we had a bit of a wait for the fish n’chip supper but, lets face it, it did  EVENTUALLY arrive in vast quantities and no-one went home hungry. In fact, there were chip parcels avaiable for OXFAM if required, and I think they are still in transit !
Can’t win ’em all ! ?
