Darlington prides itself in its artistic accomplishments. Not to be outdone the Hare presented to the Hills Hash House Harriers a drama production consisting of three acts on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Act 1 consisted in a traverse of Glebe Ave onto the bridal path. After a couple of checks there was an intermission while the FRB’s decided to check for some marks up a 45-degree slope. The hare was noticeably reluctant to follow. Act 2 was a delightful meander along the bubbling Nyaania brook ending up at the Glen Forest superblock. Act 3 was a forceful finish along bush trails to avoid pounding the pavement of Ryecroft Rd. The GM and RA must have been rolling in the flowered meadows of Piessed Brook as they were “no shows” thus Dripper took it upon himself to be the leader of the circle’s entertainment. Long-time no sees in the form of White Pointer, Wisecrack and Spekle were welcomed back. A new walker, Carmen was a welcome addition to the youth group. After the usual On Down’s it was over and we socialized over a pleasant BBQ.
On On till next week in Piesse Brook….P. Merah
Talbot Trials and Tribulations
Most members drove to the start location in raining weather and were probably thinking…why I am doing this? Nevertheless the RA prevailed and the clouds cleared for the start of the run in Talbot reserve. The route more or less circumvented the park with the Hare making sure that large quantities of sand underfoot were encountered. After a quick 20 minutes of flower viewing the drink stop was reached. The hare, Sheepshunter, was dishing out German Beer; alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Did this have anything to do with the German election being held that Sunday? Methinks all those who went for the non-alcoholic beer should have been relegated to an East German prison camp for their sins. It soon became obvious that the FRB’s led us astray and missed a portion of the run which meant that after the drink stop we headed out again to do the missing bits; well some of us did….where were you GPS? The circle was well placed adjacent to the heavy traffic on Talbot road. Welcome backs to the Tickhead family who were getting too much sunshine in Karratha and were in need of a dose of Perth winter weather. New runner Jessica promised to return next week. There were, some other charges, a birthday cake and plenty of Aussie beer to wash it down. On On till next week in Darlington….
