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 ….

So, then it was all over ……. You know … just like that …!

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

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

Miles and Miles To Go …. Oh Dear …. & a Belated Birthday Too !

Another beautiful Sunday afternoon had the pack mingling about in Parkerville. The Hare, Dripper, had miscalculated just a teensy – weensy bit using miles instead of kilometres on his App.so there was a possibility it was going to be another MAMMOTH Pink Bits walk part of a few weeks ago … ! Thankfully, it wasn’t !

However, although up a few steep bits at the beginning, it was a great run/walk with scenic spots and false trails going quite a distance … Runners and walkers came in at almost the same time after about an hour. The GM convened the circle and instantly, along with the RA, charged the late comers who had driven miles across the Hills cos they went to the wrong place …. Oh, dummy spits all round for website issues etc. but still the cake arrived for the birthday 5 MONTHS OVERDUE. Very Hash …..

The down-downs were peppered (Ha Ha) with some very healthy spicy tomato juice ……. they were very popular …..(not) After, we had a multitude of snacks to finish off and some went to the Parky for a nice meal (It was freezing outside but we persevered)

The Cul-De-Sac of Runs !

This weeks run was set from the very lofty heights of Kalamunda. The pack gathered at the end of a road which ended right there. The Hare Scooby Doo, aided and abetted by Thumper, gave directions for walkers and runners and we set of on a fabulous autumn afternoon into the local bushland. The trails were well marked and there was not much water (for a change) We wound around, up and down, down and up minding the slippy bits and the MULTITUDE of gum nuts. The views were spectacular if you dared look up from the ground ….. Occasionally we heard rustling in the bushes which indicated some runners were nearby and our paths crossed almost at the On Home !

This was a great run and, although Scooby had spent the best part of 3 1/2 hours setting it worrying the runners, it ended up being just on an hour.

In the circle, poorly conducted by Hash Vice (who had to ask for the Monks intervention to bring about some order) everyone agreed the run was good and apart from the usual charges and fines, there is nothing significant to report….NO WAIT …. YES THERE IS …..

A NAMING ….. Arianne was named …………. “SPITFIRE”  …………   (for being speedy, sporty and fiery) Congratulations !

In other business, Leapfrog has canvassed the possibility of the General Meeting held Annually to be on JULY 16th ….. A usual Sunday so please * Save the Date *    More details later  ………

We had a scrummy Hash Nosh of Spag. Bol ……. Thanks to  Red Dwarf/Redlight

What … No PUDDLE Warning ???

On a somewhat overcast, dark and … oh … !!!       lets face it ….  WET Sunday we gathered in a crowded carpark (but with the potential promise of hot chips later from a food van parked conveniently close)

The Hare DOSH, was quick to point in the direction of the run start and gave comprehensive instructions for both runners and walkers. So off we trudged (never a truer word !) over an EXTREMELY rocky trail, that although so well marked you could not get lost, was, nevertheless, tough as  …… Hmm I was wondering if this was a pre-cursor to one of those *Mudder* runs that I was thinking of joining ! (NOT !) It started by mostly going down but that meant, at some point, it would have to go up !

We skipped and twirled with excitement didn’t we…RUNNERS I meant as you all came back with bloodied limbs that invoked visions of twirling …. ??? Mostly falling and scratching but who am I to comment on that.

Eventually, everyone returned safe and sound ( NOTE : GPS was not present this week) Some charges were timidly given for lack of water information (Hey I’m sorry) and others for whatever the circle could think of under the circumstances. Dripping from the roof of the shelter hastened the end of the circle and, although the chips beckoned for some, others went for the yummy curry….

Hash Nosh next week folks

The long and the short of it

From: Train playground, Glen Forrest

Runners enjoyed a fun-sized run; some in their aprons. Franger enjoyed scooting down a hill, while Nameless scored less than 10 for his diving. Walkers trekked there and back again at double the runner’s duration, the stragglers wandering in as the Circle strained if it was or wasn’t.
