Really, when setting a run near a lovely lake, eg. Victoria, Superior, Argyle, Leschenaultia, Capsicum, Pumpkin or Cucumber, maybe let the Hashers ACTUALLY go around it a few times… 🙁
Oh well, so the Hashers mostly (more later!) arrived very, very early just because it was very, very far from the Hills which is a problem for lots of nervous Hills Folks. ( OMG I HAVE TO TRAVEL TO THE FLATS ! Food packs, weather report & RAC road alerts mandatory !) We had many returnees from last week which was just great as well as a Hasher newly arrived to Hills Hash from parts of deepest, darkest WA country !
The Hare gave us a great set of instructions….go that way..> .walkers and runners on same trail till they split..< > .! ? Off we went in the direction of roads and streets with the odd little strip of park here and there ! Eventually, we did manage to enjoy the balmy (barmy) afternoon in a multicultural setting which this park is famous for, and for a lot of good reasons. Really good facilities & how many councils are there who provide great water stations to fill up bottles, doggie bowls and have a surprise water jet to get you in the eye ? Loved it. !!!
Runners blamed each other for short-cutting, as well as arriving back from different directions and thisW applied to walkers as well. Did not matter though as we all had a good time. Well done to the Hares who were always making sure everyone was ” ÖN TRAIL” even if THEY had to shortcut !
At the circle there were the usual punishments administered by a really sore and tired GPS !(He is a busy man !) Also, it has to be noted that there was a bit of a problem with a TOM-TOM ! Was this fate.?..A couple of Hashers arrived 20 minutes too late for the run due to an un-helpful TOM-TOM ! (Who was the Hare again ?)
Lets not laugh (much) at this as it was a lovely run with a great group of eager sports persons ! We love our sport !
Till next weak !
