The Run That Was 2 Weeks Ago & The Last One As Well ….. !

1.   Great run .. bit wet and some person without a parent had MOVED some of the trail so some confusion ensued. However, am assured the, when found, drink stop was FABULOUS and many, many drinks were consumed for absentees.
Of course there was the famous *lets keep together* group ! Leapfrog, GPS, et al who should all know better & not get lost together ..,. Still, as they were found, it was like the rescue of the guys in the Thai caves …. such cheers and backslapping ! (The movie comes out shortly !) A warm fire was FOUND as well to huddle the circle around … great find ! Not many charges and rain imminent so here endeth the circle !
2. Another great run and also a fabulous birthday event (Oh … not that fabulous really … ) Well, the weather was likely to be AWFUL … so the Hare’s Leapfrog & Passiona kept things to a minimum. Despite the inclement predictions, we had a relatively dry run and very well marked walk at least ! Once back, runners were not far behind (or was that in front ?) In the circle, charges were far and few as the RA was so tired from watching the losing Dockers. Oh … I actually meant SUPPORTING the losing Dockers !
There was a POT-LUCK dinner afterwards around the smokey fire & a slide show of the Karratha goings on !
(& a secret showing of Red Dog – True Blue ……. WOOOF !)

NOT a Boutique Run … !

Well, it was really but am fed up of that statement …….

So, a small but sophisticated group of 4H banded together in wonderful weather (am a poet too …!)

We had some (as we now know …) vague and not complete instructions from the Hare – Downhill,- and set of at a cracking pace. We were warned that there was no water, but we could cross it without getting our socks wet … this was good news for Dripper …

Cherisse, our new walker, was a bit tardy in her appearance but managed to catch up. (Her limo driver was unavailable so she had to drive herself ….aaahhh !)

Despite all the worries or not, we all managed to converge back at the start eventually.

The Hare was duly charged for not being specific about his trail for walkers (WHERE HAD THE W’s GONE ?) and not much else happened …

or I forgot ! It was a very good run though and enjoyed by all …. Great to see a few returnee’s too !

We were a tad chilly as the sun set so the circle got smaller and smaller as we huddled around Skippy’s fire. He even managed to get his oldish sneakers a wee bit molten …. Watch out for new shoes !

Till next week

The Post-Spinifex Run !

 

A small select boutique gaggle of Hashers congregated at the very tiny car park that young Skippy had chosen. We managed to cram ourselves in and, as the weather was kind, we waited in anticipation for run instructions. They were a bit vague with lots of hand waving and gesticulating ! However, runners and walkers set off in the same direction with lots of W’s veering off for walkers.

According to my inside information, the run was a bit lumpy, rocky and steep. The trail was well marked and the pack kept together. Also, Dripper did not come back with wet socks despite having to cross a few creeks ! The walk was really pleasant for all …

Once we had all returned safely, we convened the circle with the stand-in GM and stand-in RA …. we were surprised to see the RA, in full Monk attire, wearing the Lame-Duck hat ! Hmmm …. more to come …..

There was a virgin walker this week (with her limo driver) so welcome to Hills Hash …… Ha Ha Ha – was fun showing how to do a down-down !

Other charges were, of course, for the Hare and a few others who were not that significant, were you Skimpy ??? ! The Lame Duck wearer explained it was a gardening accident but, you know ….. well …..um !?

A significant mention needs to be made that THERE WAS NO SPINIFEX ON THIS RUN … OMG …. thank goodness ! Some of us have had enough of those needles ….

Priscilla Queen of the Desert …or … Frocks on Rocks !

This week, Hills Hash had a spectacular Hash-Away in the warm and sunny Nor’west ! We had a couple of visiting Hashers join us ! The theme was as above so, needless to say, there was a great deal of dress-up. We were fortunate to have semi-professional make-up artists (daughter and friend of hosts) who assisted in *glamming* us all up and did a fab job.
The Hares – Tickhead and Wacuda  – The terrain – up a dirty big hill the hard way through the famous Pilbara banded ironstone on rocky trails that were not for the faint-hearted. Lets say where there was a significant up, there was a significant down, as one of the visitor Hashers found out to her peril ! The climax and 1/2 way point, was to be on top of the rock to toast the sunset !!!  Lovely !
Runners had a tough time of it. The Hares made an unfortunate decision to run in DRAG through a North-west mining town that caused some consternation among the blokes ! They were back within the appointed time (unscathed !)  but, the walk was much longer than expected so we had a very quick photo shoot, sunset admire and then had to descend to the bottom (the quick way) before it got dark. (Some got a lift – Ha Ha !)
The circle was convened at the hosts home with great gusto and some robust charges were administered in the form of the marshmallow and Mr Bailey ! There was a bit of whingeing about inadequate flour marking trail, so the run must have been good. We continued celebrations late into the night.
There will be more stories and photographic evidence of the event for the rest of the Hills Hash shortly.
Huge thanks to Pick Up Chick, Tickhead and Family for their hospitality, friendship and fun time ! Also, for showing us the sights in the area. Was a really great experience.
