Among The Pesky TV Towers Again !

First of all, hope everyone enjoyed the AGPU last Saturday night and CONGRATULATIONS to all the award winners.

WELCOME to the new committee for 2018 – 2019 Hope you have a great year …
SNB was the Hare of the day and set a good number of Hashers on their way with spots, dots and W’s. There was a promise of a drink stop and so the pace was sharp !
Walkers were treated to some lovely bushy trails which zig-zagged around and almost back on itself ! (going dizzy …) Rustling and Horn in the distance led us to believe theywere not far away. However, just as we thought we would not get a drink stop, the bush miraculously cleared and a welcome table with refreshments appeared… Yay ! After a short break, the runners turned up, ready for the splash !
We returned to the start for a short-ish circle with new GM & new RA. There was a hat presentation to a Hasher who will be known as a Comrade (Ha Ha) and a Birthday charge, a new shoe charge and some other ones !
We had the arrival of Hash Nosh to speed up proceedings so went off to have some further sustenance.
On – On

Klever El Keeno’s Kaper

Great turn out on a smashing day ! Hare gave us some directions & warnings and we were off !
Runners and walkers were on the same trail till we got to W’s. All seemed good at the start but there was some consternation at the circles of W’s and confusion as to which way to go … but … there you go … never a problem in your own neighbourhood ! Can’t get lost …! ! !
Runners horn was heard often in the distance and then just close but not till the end did we join up to return to the circle.
Stand in GM and RA were summoned and, of course, El Keeno got his just rewards and had about 6 down-downs …  Despite no drink stop, it had actually been a good run for all and even short-legged walkers could cross over the fallen trees etc.
ON ON to the AGPU and a brand new committee (maybe …?)

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes … With Wet Feet !

Determined to have a warm welcome, the Hare had a few twigs going as the pack arrived. His chalk talk was brief (as opposed to the run …) and with a mere wave of hand we were directed out into the bush.
It was a very pleasant walk with masses of wildflowers starting to appear. At one point, in a photo opportunity, all the purple-clad Dockers supporters were lost in a sea of Hovea …. sadly it is not helping the team !
The Hare had planned a little wet diversion for us as we had to traverse a raging torrent (small trickle really …!) but no drama’s ensued. Runners horn was heard a few times and they eventually came in with the walkers.
Back in the circle, there had in fact been a bit of drama and one unlucky Hasher was fined for his slide. Another birthday was celebrated and a few more down-downs were dished out. As the GM and RA were present (but had no idea what’s been going on …! Ha Ha ) charges were mostly from the pack !
Weather is looking up so till next time …

The ” YES, There Is A Drink Stop ” Run …..

On a very pleasant, slightly sunny afternoon, the pack gathered at the designated spot. It was quite a good turnout with a few returnees and long time no see’s
The joint Hares, Pink Bits & Dripper gave a quick chalk talk and set the pack off in the same direction, ….. with warnings of no hills, no water and A DRINK STOP !
The walk meandered through leafy tracks, was reasonably well marked and uneventful (always a good thing …!)
The run went off quite a long way but managed to keep the pack together. On the up-side, there was a quirky new firebreak that the Hares had discovered, so runners went into un-chartered territory. Eventually, converging on the drink stop (that they thought was a furphy) with the walkers well ensconced and having some refreshments. After a short social break, we hopped, skipped and jumped back to the start.
As the GM & RA were not present (OMG …!) we convened the circle with Deputy GM and a surprise RA in P. M.The usual charges were laid on the Hares, then the RA  opened the floor for charges from the pack. There were not many but there was a Birthday Down-Down for Up-Hill ! Woo Hoo !
We finished with some camaraderie and snacks and a curry to go to !
