Best RA barr NUN

What an amazing Hash NUN we have….. she managed to hold off the rain for the entire run and that was no mean feat, as we arrived in torrential rain moments with following heavy showers….

Despite ominous skies we were a reasonable group huddled under shelter. The run and walk was mostly in bushland round the extremeties of Kalamunda ! It was a great run, with the added feature of a drink stop, (including bubbles) with a view ! Both runners and walkers had separate stops (always an advantage !….) and returned with everyone intact and safe and sound !

Circle had usual charges and fines, the RA got her HASH NUN badge (treasure it !)  … more Birthdays were celebrated ( who keeps having them I ask ?) … and was reasonably short due to inclement weather having to appear after holding it in for so long ! (not dis-similar to some Hashers who needed to dash off into the bushes ……)

Great stuff ….

On On till next week !

All Aboard the Hash Train or Darlington Pooch Paradise !

It was a lovely Sunday for a Hash run. We collected ourselves slightly off the spot the Hare thought we would meet but, nevertheless, close by. After instructions, we set off together and there was the first error……. walkers were sent the wrong way …… we had a good laugh and turned around, but then the next error (not sure whose ?) we lost the walkers trail. Due to clever deductions and a bit of local knowledge, we headed for the bridle path towards Glen Forrest and we were on trail again. After meandering through some lovely bushland and close to a swirling creek, we clambered over rocks and back on to roads. Eventually, we got back to the sart where the runners were already enjoying a refreshing beverage whilst admiring the many dogs having play dates on the oval !

The circle was called and down-downs were many especially for the Hare and assistant Hare. The runners had enjoyed their trail and no-one got lost ! I think there may have been a bit of short-cutting …?

The stand-in RA did a good job drumming up charges and, as it was a birthday event, Uphill had to wear the special new *Hat*

There was cake and it wasn’t left out in the rain …it was good ….!

Dripper’s 600th Run …or … Get a Life !

There was a very sunny, colourful Hash gathering this week to celebrate the magnificent and * awesuspicious * occasion of Dripper’s 600th run. He was presented with a fetching feather bra and a yellow flag to take on the run. Most Hashers were dressed in long frocks to help him celebrate this achievement.

Directions were given for runners and walkers with the separate trails marked very well.  The trail wound its way past numerous watering establishments, at one of which we actually needed to spend some time. It would have been longer had it not been for the doggies we had in tow … but swiftly moving along, we found ourselves back at the  start. Our outfits caused a bit of a stir in the leafy suburb of Guilford and traffic slowed to a crawl-by. (Tee – Hee)

The circle was entertainig with the new GM, RA & On-Sec being fully in control. (well almost …!) There were numerous charges and nonesense but we were anticipating a delicious dinner at the third watering hole, so it was short and sweet.

On – On

Where Are You Scooby Doo …? REVISITED

As the weather closed in and rain was imminent, the new GM and RA appeared just in time. I think the RA was hoping to appease the Rain Gods but it wasn’t really working. The Hare, GPS, gave some quick instructions as walkers and runners set off in their respective directions.

AND THEN THE RAIN CAME DOWN…..

Runners sped off quick smart and walkers put up their brolly’s and braved the wind and rain (tough lot !) but not all as a few were reluctant to get drenched so hung about with random people sheltering under the meagre railway awning.

Eventually, we all went for a bit of a walk and caught up with returning walkers. Very funny really as it was such a short walk we were back in 30 minutes. Runners were out a little bit longer but some trail had washed out so GPS was herding the pack like a mother – hen ! Sweet ….

It was with some cobnsternation that we waited for 2 missing runners, 3 if you count GPS arriving via a short cut ….AHA …..He DOES deserve the SCB Trophy ! Still no sign of Scooby and a visiting Hasher but everyone swore they saw them arriving at the station at the back of the pack !????

After a serious discussion re:Occ Health & Safety, we carried on with the circle where there were lots of down-downs  from the new RA as well as name badges given out to very excited littles ! There had been cake for Sheep Shunters birthday so obviously he had a down-down as well !

We then finished and thought about leaving the lost Hashers to their fate (being mauled by small rodents, having wet dangly bits of bush slithering over them !) but some of us stayed and we sent GPS off on his bike to look for them. At exactly that time they returned, safe and sound having just been on a tourist trek ! (Lecture about safety was given but apparently they did tell someone ! …Next time tell someone who is not deaf ! ! !)

Oh it was a good run really and a few of us had a super HOT curry later …. Certainly warmed the cockles …..YUUUMMMMMM !

Dress up next week to celebrate Drippers 600th run !

Out With The Old – In With The New ! (or The All Aldi Run !)

On a very pleasant afternoon, we gathered at the chosen venue for our *annual meeting held each year*

The Hare’s set a short but sweet run meandering through orchards, paddocks and laneways. It was indeed short and we were back in no time at all, ready to get into the celebrations and frivolities of this annual event held annually !

There was a bit of a circle with the run being voted as good by both runners and walkers. Then a few random charges, such as new faces, no Hash gear and other minimal stuff.

Then the formalities began in earnest with awards given to deserving (or not) Hashers and then ……. Taa   Daa ! …..  Election of the NEW  CUMMITTEE …. Hmph ….

Oh My … What a Great Run !

In usual style, P M managed to set one of those great, well organised runs !

From a venue well known to us all, (some might say too often lately !) we were informed that the start was as flat as any Hills Hash run could be in the area OF HILLS !!! ….

Bless him … he did his best to herd the pack on – on with promises of trail to suit everyone…. Walkers had little dinky W’s and runners the usual blobs of flour.

It was a very well marked trail, so well marked that some of the walkers felt they could veer off to a private house for a beverage or two, not realising that they missed a significant loop (not so clever really eh !???) back to the start.

The runners enjoyed themselves galloping gallantly up and down hills… (no wait, … no hills here !) Injuries were either non-existant or very well hidden.

Gathering round the tinyest fire known to man, everyone returned safe and sound and gathered themselves ….. In the circle, which was unremarkable, short and with only a few down-downs as we ran out quickly (due to errant walkers !) the run was judged as outstanding….

 

Next week is the Meeting Held Annually Every Year so look forward to much merriment and intruige as the new committee is voted in and coveted awards are given out to deserving Hashers.

On-On

Hash Scribe

Franger’s run last Sunday.

A surprisingly large group of runners and walkers turned up at the Glen Forest Tennis club on a pretty cold afternoon.

After some vague directions to the walkers, they headed off to the South, while the runners headed off in the opposite direction. Within seconds, the runners were almost back to the start again. This set the tone for the rest of the run, constantly looping back and forth, not to mention, up and down.

A long hard run with lots of false trails and a somewhat confusing end, not many saw the “On Home”.

In the circle we farewelled Pickup Chick and Lady Ga Ga for a few years in Karratha, apparently Tick Head and Piping Hot had already left to get out of the cold.

Leapfrog was fined for listing to the footy during the circle (Freo lost, again!).

The General meeting held annually is at Passiona and Leap Frog’s place on Sunday the 16th of July. Run and walk at the normal time followed by Nosh.

On On Passiona

We had a good turn out as we crammed our vehicles into the tightest of parking areas, After a bit of re-arranging and car tango …. we were advised by the Hare that the trail was marked for both runners and walkers and it was ! It was a lovely afternoon and we tracked around the local bushland with mostly level ground The hilly bit was at the end which was not much fun but no-one got lost. The runners and walkers arrived back about the same time. In the circle it was deemed a very good run/walk and PM was given the obligatory down-down. Other charges were un-remarkable and as it started to get really chilly, we closed the circle and went home ! Remember to ** return all trophies ** as soon as possible and leave with SKIPPY ! *** Meeting we have annually will be on 16 July *** PB x

They’ve Gone The Wrong Way ….!

This week we met in the back blocks. The Hare, Skippy, kindly waited for a short time till all the slack Hashers arrived…. so kind !

There was a trail for runners and a separate one for walkers. With the lure of a drink stop, we headed off on a sunny afternoon, it was good to be in the big outdoors. Both trails were, apparently, well marked.

At the drink stop someone hid the beverages from the runners,( no name – no pack drill !) but found them quickly….

Then the fun started, … the runners took off at the rate of knots up a BIG hill (am lying … there was much groaning …) but walkers were offered a choice *on back* or a slightly longer loop. Some chose the former and some didn’t. Now, the SHOCKING thing was that Leapfrog (never, ever follow her … ) chose the longer loop AND, chose it correctly ! Not so for others, we waited ages for them to arrive..fortunately with the keys to the beverage vehicle !!! They took the *Long Way Home* even though the Hare called them back ! Too much chatting !

Dripper, as ACTING RA, (and he wont get any Oscars for that ….) felt a lot of power that went to his head. I mean fancy DEMANDING that no-one was to EVER …Um …re-arrange the drink recepie….. I mean where is the fun in that ?

Anyway, we survived the circle, if a little ticked off, and Hash Nosh arrived with a sumptious repast.

With the night closing in we took comfort in the fire pit to keep the wolves at bay…. Hooooooowl…Hoooo Hoooo Hoooooo ! Hoooowl !

Nameless’s Tale of 3 Schools !

Deep in the back blocks of Viveash, the Hills pack gathered at the designated spot only to have the Hare call on the phone saying that he had not yet finished setting the run …… (or was he just lost ???)

He did get back just in time for a late start (we had many tardy arrivals) and set us off for what promised to be a long run. VERY LONG IT TURNED OUT !

Walkers were told it was just up to the school and back along the river, but …. there were 3 schools and we weren’t sure which one so a bit confusing….. Never mind, it was a lovely afternoon and no hills or gravel. It was really *dog alley* so many pooches had meet and greet moments along the way. I especially liked the Hash dog meet another similar breed – one had been soaked in Napisan , one hadn’t … can you guess which one was WHITER ?

The runners went sooooooooo much further afield. I believe they passed the Woodbridge Tavern at one point, quite worried that there was no sign of a return trail. Eventually they did get back in straggly groups, some from directions that did not make any sense, some sore with tender parts, all sweaty !

In the circle, down-downs were many especially for the Hare. We had a couple of visitors who sampled our hospitality and may be back. Hope so ……

Next week we will have Nosh so bring your gear and lanterns, torches etc

On On
