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 ……
On – On
