Oh no …The Hares were unaware that all Water Corp. parks were closed from 4th -7th March due to hot weather. Leapfrog refused to give in (and wouldn’t the Corporation be terrified …) so all went ahead despite numerous queries from concerned Hashers…..
We managed to gather a decent number of participants, with a few overseas entrants and some from Kalgoorlie (Tee… Hee …more later) and even a motorcyclist on a brightly coloured beast who nearly ran us all down but it was only Catwalk ….
With an adjusted trail and vague arm waving, we set off in the hope that the Weir wall would not be blocked off to us. Lo and behold ! …this week’s RA wove some magic and we were able to traverse the wall. (Donald Trump would be proud …the drop is significant ….. ) Unfortunately, where there is down, there must be up and so ….. with red sweaty faces and bodies, we had to clamber up a million steps ….up and up and up and up … It was tough going till almost at the carpark, LEAPFROG THOUGHT THAT THE WATER CORP. HAD PUT SPRINKLERS ON TO COOL US DOWN… She was delirious of course.
As for the runners who cares…they came back in shades of plum, puce and purply red…. although some were trying to compete … you know who you are …!
The circle was great with many down-downs, particularly fun was the ** v e r y s l o w ** down – down by Sgt. Schultz from Kal. … We wasn’t expectin’ that … ! The UK visitors (newly weds from Manchester ….I mean really …. ) were game and young Kelly was a star …almost put Schultzy to shame… a Hasher in the making I think.
What followed can only be described as a comedy of errors. We were having to have a BBQ at Sculpture Park in Mundaring, but when we got there I think it took 3 goes to get to the BBQ that was working ..cars moved 2 -3 times as Hashers walked left then right then left again with all the food and ONIONS …sooooooo many onions. A special mention to the cute bandicoot clearing any dropped delicacies as he eyed the pale skinned Brits for potential prey to be dragged to his lair ….
We had plenty of food and fun … OMG ….! … get off the flying fox kids ! Freaking us out …
In some pain due to the steps, yours in Hashing,…..
