A select group of hashers gathered on New Year’s Eve at Helena Valley Rd. to draw a line through 2017. The Hare, Teflon Toddler, was apparently enjoying an afternoon nap which required Dripper to sail forth and set a trail with the help Skimpy. No sure what help he was as later on during the run he had no idea where the trail went. We were obliged to follow white micro-dots of flour placed on white sand through the bushland of Cedar Woods new property development. As you can imagine it was slow going! All made it back safe and sound and thirsty for some New Year’s Eve refreshments. We welcomed a new family of runners and walkers Andy & Oliver, Nerrida & Saffron from Parkerville and hope they will return soon. There was a welcome back for Biggus Dickus and Hawkeye from Pattaya. Rock Bottom & Crusher were charged for drinking their own champagne instead of hash piss. A fitting end to year 2017 and hopefully everyone’s New Year resolution is to run more Hills Hash Runs and set more vigorous trails.

Parties, Movies, Everything ….. !
This week’s run was set by P M (he of notorious claim to fame of setting *significant* runs) from the flat suburb of Darlington ! ! ! All of you who missed the run, be grateful …. By all accounts it was a lengthy, arduous and tough-mudder ball-breaker-type run. It lasted for well over an hour and by the state of the runners, the word *knackered* was an appropriate word to describe them.
This was indeed a select boutique run with a moderate number of Hashers rolling up on a warm evening.
It was evident at the start that the GM, RA & On-Sec were not going to be present so it was a *STAND-IN* event. Taking on their roles VERY importantly, the temp. GM welcomed everyone and the Hare gave out some vague instructions (as usual) There was a runners and walkers trail, so we were off in different directions. The walk was most pleasant and very well marked, (which did not stop some walkers going off in wrong direction down driveways …!) Runners were not even heard (horn) for quite some time but on returning, judging by the RED faces (not making a joke of this …!) it had been of a fair distance and, despite the heat, (AND NO DRINK STOP) a good run. Apparently, there had been a short stop to investigate a ….. ahem … little cubby deep in the bush which was of some interest to some !
In the circle, the temp RA did his best to deliver charges but was at a loss as he had been on the walkers trail due to a niggling leg. However, there were plenty of charges from the pack to keep the Hash Splash busy !
On a special note, Hills Hash House Harriers are now sporting a new look t-shirt ! It is very smart and makes us look really sporty (Hee ! Hee !) Its all about the look …. get yours soon …….. Thanks to Sheep-Shunter/Light My Fire for your efforts in getting the gear !
On – On
