Hashers were congregating on Darlington Oval’s “doggie paradise” patch. The weather was good, the company was jovial and the dogs were ….everywhere !
The hares, Trainwreck & Shagged Out, went to a lot of trouble to make sure we would be entertained and could follow a well marked trail.
Runners and walkers set off in opposite directions and soon enjoyed a bush track with wildflowers aplenty. Being in D’ton, we were soon aware that there were a few hills (?) but nothing too complicated for walkers at least ! It is getting a little warmer so those uphill treks are starting to bring on a light sweat but what about the flies … they were about in force (was it something to do with the dogs ?) and sticky.
Back at the start (walkers came back first) some of us investigated the *doggie memorial* stump across the oval. Ahhh !
Once the runners staggered back on wobbly legs and had partaken of some refreshment, the circle was called and the charges flew thick and fast. As the RA is still absent (at a special retreat for RA’s …. nudge nudge … wink wink…) the stand-in, Dripper, inflicted down-downs, some well deserved and some not so well deserved to all and sundry (what about those pesky other dogs I say …. charge their owners for too much fun …)
All in all, it was a great run with care and attention to detail. Just missing a drink stop ….
On – On
