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 !

ONLY THE BRAVE……

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…

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.
