Boating & Burning Bonanza !

Smashing day for Hashing  yet only a select boutique group turned up ! Never mind, we had the usual milling about (some on a lake I believe ?) then the GM called the circle. The Co-Hare, baby Max (setting his first run !!! Yay !) and  Skimpy ( Ye Gods !) gave a few vague instructions with much elbow pointing into the bush. ON-On was somewhere over there so off went the pack together…

The run was marked in Skimpy’s special way so as usual there was confusion but walkers having had a nod and a wink from Mummy Free Beer knew who to keep up with… Along the way there were a few points at which runners and walkers conjoined, interleaved and had near misses ! ! ! Then a car appeared and proceeded to throw a number of small people out as it continued on the road. ( Well, not literally, …) We happily got the kids to join us but P B was worried that there is a bit of a Hash habit of this occurring……… isn’t there Pick Up Chick…?

All Hashers enjoyed the wonderful weather and returned to the venue with more boating (so I am told..)

The circle was enjoyable with the Co-Hare doing double duty Down-downs and complaints were not too bad.  We had a visitor from Freo Hash who we hope wasn’t too traumatized ? ! A Birthday was acknowledged and everyone was keen to get on with the bonfire and the Nosh – so we tucked into a lovely chilli and lots and lots of cake ! Thanks to the Red family..The night was lovely and a super special moon came up (in the sky that is….. 🙂


Till next week…



The GPS and Rambling Show !

Well, a very select, small and boutique group of Hashers assembled in Kalamunda on a cold and windy day.

Raring to go, GM and Franger were positively champing at the bit (or were they just scantily dressed ?) and wanting to warm up ?So after words of wisdom from GPS (oh dear…) off we went, running and walking in sort of the same direction ! Some confusion ensued when Rambling, the co-hare, seemed unsure if it was where the walkers had to veer right, left, up or down but as walkers could hear the music at the pub at all times, we would never had been lost….

Everyone re-assembled, with no escapees or lost souls, and a quick cold circle was called by GM. We had some ordinary down-downs for nothing REALLY bad, and so ended another wonderful run…Brave souls stayed on for a quick BBQ and then went somewhere much warmer…..Brrrrr…..


On-On till next week…It will be warmer too !

Chidlow Oktoberfest Ramble

Sadly no -one dressed in “Lederhosen” or other flouncy blouses etc. but Leapfrog still had us enjoy the moment…..

Magic setting and a really great run and walk and good weather…thanks yet again GPS……No-one was lost  and we had some lovely German delicacies (apart from the non-alcoholic German beer……..really El Keeno it was good you didn’t have to partake of this… as a down-down it was truly awful…..)

We had our usual warming fire at the circle and some of us went for  jolly good curry after….

The Run That Was A Walk !

What a fabulous turn-out for the Trek The Trail event… We had a total of 20 Hashers, including babies, small children and middle sized children and sort of adults ….. who were ready to participate in this terrific morning ramble.

Once last minute arrangements were sorted out and we all knew where to gather, all went very smoothly……

We set off from the J F Tavern with the hope we would return there for lunch !

The trail was well marked (by the Shire…thank you) so no-one could get lost. It was a bit of a straight there and back fairly flat track and involved trudging through the Swan View tunnel ( dark…very dark and wet…..and the brave hearts went through without torches…hero’s !)

After arriving at the old Swan View railway station for much needed coffee…(give me coffee and no-one gets hurt !) we returned on the same trail and were back at the Tavern before we even knew it ! Smashing…on to a lovely lunch which left us all replete and smiling !

Great event Shire of Mundaring !

With the weather report not being crash hot AND NO Hash Nosh a very respectable group of Hashers still turned up for this week’s run. Dosh and Wacuda set the trail through some simply stunning scenery with many, many wildflowers. To top it off there was a drinks stop with view and snakes ( you had to be there !) Wacuda used some interesting material for marking the trail and we can only hope it will not confuse anyone later on !!!

No-one was lost this week so as GM ran off to more important event….. (really ?) Vice stepped in to run the circle. Everyone agreed it was a great run. The Monk (whom we need to thank for keeping the rain away) had a few charges, mainly for sitting, leaning and some other obscure misdemeanor ! Other much more interesting charge was for Franger (again !) for telling us before the start that he was running over some ground to look for orienteering markers……..Phaff ! ………we all knew he was chasing Pokémon’s He was charged of course ! As the circle started to completely disintegrate into a talk fest, Leapfrog gave us next week’s run info…



We are participating in TREK THE TRAIL walk

P M Does It Again on Father’s Day !

Don’t know how he does it, but P M managed to set another amazing (boutique quality, I’d say) run. There was a substantial turn out for this week’s run with some returnee’s and a very NEW-NEW Hasher in Max J, baby of Free Beer & Skimpy.

Cute baby ! ! !

After some photos of everyone wearing beards, mo’s and other hairy appendages, we got the run instructions and set off with gusto, knowing “go down the road”  actually meant “go UP”  so expecting hills as usual we were not disappointed. Runners were off and gone while walkers plodded on up and over ridges and past lovely babbling brooks (only to find you had to cross the babbler…) Still, walkers and runners crossed paths and eventually came back to the start. Welcome drinks were consumed and once GPS found his way back… the circle was called.

First down-downs were presented to all Dad’s by GM and it was a very decent, quality, boutique drink. Then as there were many down-downs poured, people with new shoes, anyone who spoke out of turn, someone who upset the RA and of course, Franger got to sample the special down-downs.

A fantastic presentation was made to iPadius of the Monks Dash award as he was not at the Annual Dinner. He was completely surprised and stoked to hear that he got to keep it for 1 whole year. (he was told to keep it polished !)

So ended a beautiful day of Hashing…for which we had the RA to thank.

Curry restaurant beckoned …. it was great !

A Boutique Run.

It was a select crowd of Hashers rolling up to the back blocks of Mt Helena.  Perhaps the threatening skies and the lack of an RA gave some pause, though the weather was excellent for running.  Nevertheless the Boutique crowd gathered in the sight of our Hare and GM Skippy, and all agreed that, as the Splash had turned up, all of the important person had arrived.


For a run ostensibly set in the middle of the Darling Escarpment, it was remarkably flat.  Quite dulating in fact.  The Hare had spent a great deal of time and effort on the run and all three runners were extremely impressed.  Passiona, due to illness, remained at camp and we returned to a well tended fire.  Walkers were equally pleased, both with the walk and the fire.


Nameless, possibly yearning for a summer still some weeks away, joined the group at the end of the run.  There was a circle, there were down downs, and there was agreement that a boutique run with a boutique crowd was simply…. well… boutique.


….And After The Wash-Up …!

Wet, wet, wet was the weather report but in lovely sunshine the Hare P. Merah said he set the long run as it was such a fine day. Runners and walkers set out onto a gorgeous trail through spring flowers springing up everywhere with what appeared to be clearing skies. WRONG…Not many looked back at the BLACKNESS looming ominously.

The intrepid runners could be heard in the distance with occasional horn blowing and shouting. Walkers and runners parted trails and wound their various ways to the start. There were some steep hills and true to form, P.M. set a long run for all. Just towards the end of run and walk, the heavens opened up and it got somewhat damp.

Early back at the start Baldrick (I walk fast)  decided to light the fire we had prepared  earlier which warmed the wet Hashers. We debated the prospect of eating at the bush venue or moving to more shelter so had a quick circle while the hailstones hammered us relentlessly ( joking… there were only a few !) There were lots of SCB’s etc then off we fled to the shelter of the Train Park. After a bit of a nervous wait (surely the Nosh will arrive here soon …lets have another port/drink ?) we were beautifully fed-up with Red Dwarf’s magnificent Chilli con Carne….in 3 very distinctly different levels of heat….Mild, Medium and….I Dare You ! Fabulous delicious and warming to the cockles of the heart…

Till the next adventure…

Net flat

Hare: Traiwreck
On On: Darlington oval

Darlington, renown for its vast open spaces and complete lack of undulation, provided us with a pleasant environment to walk, wander, occasionally run, and watch the death throes of a flattened duck. It was my first run back for 6 months, and Nameless also made an appearance after 2 or 3 years of not appearing. The run was without incident and reasonably inoffensive, for those not offended by knee destroying hills, will conquering loops, and numerous little spots of plain (or self raising!) flour.

So we ran around Darlington. Walkers walked around Darlington. Someone was temporarily lost, then found again (but aren’t we all???). Beers were drinked…

After 6 months I am glad and also horrified to see the circle behaviour hasn’t changed. Pink Bits meandered. Skippy displayed no semblance of control. The crowd was ugly and defiant.  All was at it should be in a perfect Hash world.

On On,
El Keeno
