Crushed and At Rock Bottom !

A mighty turn out of Hashers converged in a tiny parking area in the flatland of Kalamunda. Run instructions were given by the Hare (his off-sider refused to have any credit or otherwise) and there was a run and 2 walker trails … long and short … when I say short, it wasn’t at all,  just less hilly !
The promise of a drink stop was enough to keep all Hashers going forward and once we got there (runners first) it was well worth it … Magic views but with looming hill to traverse on way back, we stuck close to the Crushless – One in order to get home safe and sound.
In the circle, visitors were welcomed with down – downs, shirts exchanged and others were enticed by the very efficient RA, who kept things moving along nicely. A whole family of leaners were charged heftily, as they should, and others were just fined for anything at all.  Hash Splash made a late appearance (not in Hash gear …) but everyone had some cool fluids to end the H O T days event …..
Great venue …

How Steep Is My Valley ?

This week’s run was set by P M (he of notorious claim to fame of setting *significant* runs) from the flat suburb of Darlington ! ! ! All of you who missed the run, be grateful …. By all accounts it was a lengthy, arduous and tough-mudder ball-breaker-type run. It lasted for well over an hour and by the state of the runners, the word *knackered* was an appropriate word to describe them.

In the (late) circle P M was charged for everything but his paltry excuse was that there were lovely views … Lovely views are all good if you have the energy to look ! There was a bit of surprise from the pack that there were no injuries, scratches or lost limbs !
On a happy note, one certain Hasher celebrated his 18th birthday with a down-down containing an adult beverage. Well done … more to come !!!
Word of warning …. next week’s run is is little old FLAT Kalamunda.   Groan …keep them short if weather hot and tricky terrain ???
Hash nosh was a welcome feast … thanks Hash Nosh folk !

Boutique Stand-In Run

This was indeed a select boutique run with a moderate number of Hashers rolling up on a warm evening.

It was evident at the start that the GM, RA & On-Sec were not going to be present so it was a *STAND-IN* event. Taking on their roles VERY importantly, the temp. GM welcomed everyone and the Hare gave out some vague instructions (as usual) There was a runners and walkers trail, so we were off in different directions. The walk was most pleasant and very well marked, (which did not stop some walkers going off in wrong direction down driveways …!) Runners were not even heard (horn) for quite some time but on returning, judging by the RED faces (not making a joke of this …!) it had been of a fair distance and, despite the heat, (AND NO DRINK STOP) a good run. Apparently, there had been a short stop to investigate a ….. ahem … little cubby deep in the bush which was of some interest to some !

In the circle, the temp RA did his best to deliver charges but was at a loss as he had been on the walkers trail due to a niggling leg. However, there were plenty of charges from the pack to keep the Hash Splash busy !

On a special note, Hills Hash House Harriers are now sporting a new look t-shirt ! It is very smart and makes us look really sporty (Hee ! Hee !) Its all about the look …. get yours soon …….. Thanks to Sheep-Shunter/Light My Fire for your efforts in getting the gear !

To Infinity And Beyond ………….or …..I Think I’m Lost !

Amazingly, most Hashers remembered it was a 5pm start ! There were however, a few tardy’s but they managed to catch up !
As it had been a warm day,  the Hares wanted to make this a short run, but, it did not pan out that way … Runners and walkers set off in the same direction and then went separate ways, converging and overtaking … The run had been set around an old quarry so to say the trail was very rocky in parts was not an understatement ! There were some splendid views if you dared take your eyes from the ground and, thankfully, shady parts. It had been a bit of a challenge setting the trail and both Hares managed to get lost (read confused …) at times so they were thinking it may be way too long in the hot weather …. For one Hare, it really felt like infinity and beyond …..
However, it was well marked and there was a much appreciated drink stop (which was secretly filmed by a spy camera, cleverly disguised as a … CAMERA …!!!  Watch out ASIO …) Refreshed and revived, the pack set off for the *On Home* and arrived back to the very welcome sight of the Hash Splash (much consternation at the start as there was no sign of the splash wagon … !)
The circle had some good comments for the Hares even if the run was a tad long. The RA had a few charges for this and that (mostly that …) late arrivals were fined as was the Hash Splash for worrying us …… There was a most interesting accolade for GPS (so he could not be dissapointed ! ! ! ) He was named *** International Global Hash Hero*** by Skimpy and ……….. NO  ….. WAIT ….. What does that mean ???  Oh, …  it was just Simpy’s musings ….ignore …
Skippy (Hash Horn) had his moment to show us his new, bigger and better instrument and he demonstrated how he played it ! Most impressive …..
We had some nibblies and more refreshments and a visit from a local who was wondering what we were up to ……….Ah, the joy of being a Hills Hash House Harrier ……
