….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,

Skippy’s Avon Stuff-up !

So, in the words of our illustrious GM, there are 52 weeks in the year and the Avon descent is only on one of them and he chose Fishmarket Reserve, Guildford  ON THAT DAY  and it would be packed with cars and sightseers !

After hasty emails, texts and Facebook entries, everyone was notified of the change of place…..(not too far from original)  so it was still busy but nevertheless we assembled, got instructions and set of with a blackening sky

 

The run and walk were criss-crossing a fair bit and included some great bushland around Kings Meadow Polo fields. Sadly, the skies opened up and had walkers (wimps) dashing off for tree shelter. It didn’t last long though, so everyone eventually got back, somewhat damp, but relieved to find the splash was in place. There was a bit of a debate about the fact that a bazillion footy fans (it was a derby match !) would be getting off the train in Guildford and attacking Alfred’s Kitchen, where we too were going to partake of the delicacies. Some of us dashed off to order food but already, we had to wait a while.

 

Imagine our shock and surprise when we got back, the circle was over (What….without us ! ?)  and many Hashers had gone home…well…really !!! I gather there are fines and down-downs being kept over to next week ??? (Is that legal…will anyone remember ?….Does anyone care…?)

So with full belly’s and damp heads (and socks !) we left Guildford to its influx of footy fans…..Eagles won…. Whoopee Do !

Dripper’s Really Good Run (Pink Bits…are you running out of catchy names for run reports? :P )

So, it was a great run from the car park of a PUB ! ! ! Forget the run  ( well not totally as it was very good… BUT…) ….the entertainment came afterwards as a bloke…? …  came to say things to us that may have made others pack up and RUN…RUN…AWAY… but not us so we stayed… We smiled and went for curry.. It was goodly as usual…

Till next week
