The Curious Incident on Roe Hwy !

Well those travelling to GPS’s house would have had a slow drive due to some incident that we didn’t see !

The run was set with the usual professionalism one expects from GPS Sadly, his assistant was less than generous with her flour (as per another club’s run report that I wrote …  “a bag of flour short of a trail !” Ha ! ) It was a fun green dress up day, it being St Patrick’s day celebration,

Runners seemed quite happy that there were no hills and were back before the walkers. We had a naming in the circle of the littlest G’Dosh who is now –  Lookout and she doused herself with her down-down (who influenced this child …!)

Then followed a super repast of Guinness and Beef stew and veggies… Thanks Redlight and Red Dwarf for a great dinner…also thanks to all and sundry for extra bits and pieces.

 

Till the next time we have the pleasure …

SCOOBY-DOO WHERE ARE YOU ?

Ominous clouds were gathering as we congregated outside Mei’s Noodles (read Hot Mama’s)  for a special “down on the flats” run ! Scooby explained that due to rain, his flour markings could have washed away but the walkers trail was ok ! He was encouraged by the pack to be a “LIVE HARE ” and he set off as did the pack. The walkers soon realized that it was “bring out your dead” week so rummaged their way around the streets of East Vic Park with some amazing finds. It was sad to find streets with nothing on the verges.

Walkers frequently mixed up with runners (who said it was like herding sheep …..?) and we heard the horn quite a few times as we started to run out of obvious trail ! It was getting harder to work out just where the Hare was marking trail as we hadn’t seen him since the start ! He was certainly living up to his name !!!

Eventually, we arrived back at the start but no sign of Scooby….. He was still out there somewhere but not lost we felt ! As it started to get dark and we were a bit hungry, he ambled back having been informed we had all returned by our own trail ….. He was a bit surprised and miffed he had gone to the trouble of setting a bit of extra trail that was never used. Never mind, we can use it another time ! The circle was called and, immediately, the Hare had a down-down. It was followed by a few more ….  and the leaners were all fined as well. There were many leaners who did not learn their lessons …..

After, we assembled in the café and got stuck into noodles, soups and rice. It  was a great end to a good run then we found our way back to the safety of the Hills….!

(WARNING …… Next week we are down on the flats again so prepare yourselves)

DANGER … DANGER Will Robinson ….

Oh no …The Hares were unaware that all Water Corp. parks were closed from 4th -7th March due to hot weather. Leapfrog refused to give in (and wouldn’t the Corporation be terrified …) so all went ahead despite numerous queries from concerned Hashers…..

We managed to gather a decent number of participants, with a few overseas entrants and some from Kalgoorlie (Tee… Hee …more later) and even a motorcyclist on a brightly coloured beast who nearly ran us all down but it was only Catwalk ….

With an adjusted trail and vague arm waving,  we set off in the hope that the Weir wall would not be blocked off to us. Lo and behold !  …this week’s RA wove some magic and we were able to traverse the wall. (Donald Trump would be proud …the drop is significant ….. ) Unfortunately, where  there is down, there must be up and so ….. with red sweaty faces and bodies, we had to clamber up a million steps ….up and up and up and up … It was tough going till almost at the carpark, LEAPFROG THOUGHT THAT THE WATER CORP. HAD PUT SPRINKLERS ON TO COOL US DOWN… She was delirious of course.

As for the runners who cares…they came back in shades of plum, puce and purply red…. although some were trying to compete … you know who you are …!

The circle was great with many down-downs, particularly fun was the ** v e r y    s l o w  ** down – down by Sgt. Schultz from Kal. …  We wasn’t expectin’ that … ! The UK visitors (newly weds from Manchester ….I mean really …. ) were game and young Kelly was a star …almost put Schultzy to shame… a Hasher in the making I think.

What followed can only be described as a comedy of errors. We were having to have a BBQ at Sculpture Park in Mundaring, but when we got there I think it took 3 goes to get to the BBQ that was working ..cars moved 2 -3 times as Hashers walked left then right then left again with all the food and ONIONS …sooooooo many onions. A special mention to the cute bandicoot clearing any dropped delicacies as he eyed the pale skinned Brits for potential prey to be dragged to his lair ….

We had plenty of food and fun … OMG ….! …  get off the flying fox kids ! Freaking us out …

 

In some pain due to the steps, yours in Hashing,…..

Wonderful Amazing Run ….. (or was it ?)

We started at the end of a dirt road that had ominous burn-out marks and some dips that nearly swallowed Franga’s car …… or so it seemed !

The Hares were keen … the group too was ready to go …and so we trotted off in a very happy mood ….oh dear … was that an omen… ?

As soon as the walkers saw the path VERTICALLY GOING UP & UP & UP &  UP we were so happy (sic)  and also we were having a meal afterwards …… and even a drink stop ! Needless to say, we had a harrowing time of it (except those privy to a short cut…. !) It was the MOST spectacular scenery (if you dared take your eyes off the rocky path …!) and we heard the distant sound of the runners horn every now and then    (mostly then … !)

Back at the circle, the Hares were suitably chastised with down-downs (which had horrid bits in them…..) and other charges were brought forth but really, Wacuda, you are not in Cocos anymore so do not try to run through bush WITHOUT MACHETE …..

DOSH provided a jolly decent meal afterwards (I think to make up for the trials and tribulations …?) so thank you… it was really lovely and we may even forgive Wacuda …eventually….

Till next week

Lovely run

It was not a lovely run at all. I lied. It was awful and torturous. In other words: a normal day at Hash. I am still limping several days later, although my recent lack of exercise may have something to do with that.

We started from Strettle Rd in Mahogany Creek, heading into a patch of reserve that I suspected was a mite too small to contain P Merah’s machinations. Turns out I was right, as we spent little time in the area and were instead flung southwards like so many tiny meteors sling-shotting around the sun (although in a more wheezing, grumbling manner). An eventual drink-stop compensated us for our complaints, and we soon returned home to a selection of treats and a few choice tick bites (I am still scratching).

 

 

1800 Shades of Lingerie.

On this monumental and auspicious occasion, we were gathered at the back of the Sculpture Park (so as not to frighten the children … or parents …) Sadly, we did not have as big a group as we had hoped, but despite that the outfits were lovely and lingery to also celebrate Valentines Day (Oh the lurve ! ! !)

After the obligatory photo shoot (so Leapfrog doesn’t complain !) we were sent off to completely embarrass ourselves around the township of Mundaring…… round the pub, round the shops and cafes and round the neighborhood. No…it was NOT embarrassing it was liberating and fun…. GPS got a thumbs up from 2 young lasses in a car (sly old dog….!) everyone smiled at us and no-one got lost. In fact walkers and runners came back within 15 minutes of each other. That was the clever plan of the Hares, Dripper and Pink Bits as we had a feast to prepare and consume to celebrate the 1800th run. We had a celebratory drink that was not too popular (Dripper wanted to get rid of some sticky fortified wine which was mixed with soda water to dumb it down……..err…..lessen the sweetness)

Charges were few but NASTY as someone slipped that Sarspirella product in the down-downs…….then it was off to the BBQ’s for lovely “Deconstructed” (very in foodie style !)  burgers and snaggers.

No one went home hungry and even the woofers had a few treats. As the sun set we went home replete and Leapfrog will not pass out at the cost of the event.

Long and Bloody Marathon Run or Lost ?

The Tickheads do live off the beaten track but we didn’t expect Hashers to :

  1. Get lost
  2. Take a long way round to get there.

3.Go to the wrong venue. (err… not a real excuse)

  1. Turn up late dressed in lingerie (mind your own business… we cater for all tastes)

However, despite that we had a good turnout and were directed by the Hare towards the ON-ON. Of course it was a vague wave of hand in that >>>>>> direction which confused some of us. Off we marched at a cracking pace, runners took off like the wind, (bet they wished they hadn’t) and on and on and on and on and on we went…walkers following a long  stretch of power line access and some of it as very much uphill…(no hills in Chidlow  ?) After the FIRST HOUR  we were almost at the On Home mark but it was still another 10 minutes before the house came into view…..(Pink Bits had been delirious a while back swearing she had seen the house in the bush….!)

Watching in anticipation of the runners coming back, we had a beverage and waited some more and some more and some more  then after the SECOND hour there was some movement in the bush and a front running Hasher was seen coming in….BUT… Whoops…he tripped and  fell 2 minutes from home and needed First Aid assistance from Pick-up Chick (Blood everywhere and he had 3 deep gashes on his knee…poor lad was in a bad way but Pick-up didn’t sew it up as she forgot the needle and thread…..Hashing is a bit dangerous !)

Yes the RUN lasted about 2hours ! ! ! but wait….. one more Hasher was missing so when Tickhead had gone off to look for him, he was ok but wanted to come in on his own so, we waited and waited and waited and then he came back…10 minutes was about 20…All up a marathon of 12 km, I believe….

In the circle the Hare was fined numerous times, especially for setting such a long run in a vehicle, (naughty, naughty..) for providing the runners with a drink stop but not the walkers…(really, really, really naughty !…) and other charges were insignificant in the scheme of things

It was an awesome run despite the complaints……pity Franga missed it…….

He would have thought it a walk in the park …..!

Blood Letting In The Wild …….

It was a good turnout on a warmish Sunday and a great run/walk in the Weir catchment area set by P Merah. As usual, it was really long and a bit arduous as was witnessed by everyone who came back with scratches, grazes, cuts, rips and  gravel burn ! It wouldn’t have been a Hash run without ! The lucky recipient of the Lame Duck award was Free Beer but the competition was stiff ….. !

*** EPIC BIRTHDAY RUN ***

It was the best of runs, it was the worst of runs….or so I am led to believe.

With the mercury still hovering on 36 degrees, scared Hashers were ushered on to the trails that were very, very long. The only saving grace was the great drink stop … so I am told.

Dripper was fined twice (not nearly enough ….I mean give the man a small Haberdash job and he stuffs that up too …!) and Hunny Bunny was fined for RACING …….Hunny Bunny …? What kind of edumacation is your Mum Dosh providing ?

On a sad note Gaylord the Pony was injured but not seriously …Phew….( Vet insurance not included in Hashing )

Orange cake and Pavlova were the desserts of choice for celebrating the lousy Haberdash stand-in’s birthday. ! Then it was off for fish n’chips (in that order…Gagging …) and the sun sets on another wonderful Hills Hash event.

Fan -Taz -Tic Run !

Well, it was a “virgin” run set by Navigator and what a good effort it was too !

We gathered in secret Sawyers Valley location and a good turn out it was too. The Hare gave an outstanding set of directions (as he is tall) and off we ventured into quite thick bush. The trail was very well marked but we could not see the runners much. We did hear the horn every now and then, occasionally very faintly, but nevertheless, we had a great run.

There was a great deal of pipeline which was where we were meant to have a drink (As a drinks stop…..= FAIL) I have to admit I thought we may have had another disastrous set of “losses” but …what a surprise when walkers and most runners returned back at about the same time. Of course a few missing persons did turn up about 5 – 10 minutes later but that was not enough time to notice they were missing !

The charges in the circle were mostly around the fact that the run was ‘SO STRAIGHT ! ‘ (Did I mention the pipeline ?) plus a few other random fines. Oh, and YES for all the Franger watchers….he got a down-down this week.

Till next week….

Also: received this email:

 

G’day Hashers,

As one of the 5 survivors of all Aussie Nash Hashes I was asked to write a history of it.

That was about 5 years ago.

I have just finished it and it is now on the web.

 

As a contact for your club I’m sending you the U.R.L.

It would be very much appreciated if you could forward it on to the other members of your club.

 

Many thanks,

 

ON ON

Ballpoint.
