Yes it was the hares favorite song but it was Barefoot that fell on his head[ more later] I arrived early at the start ,the few there had their backs to the wall soaking up the suns last rays. They came dribbling in Skid in his Merc with the top down, its always down as the lifting mechanism is broken ,wait for the rain on Thursday. Soon near to the start a goodly crowd was milling around, in came the hares BB and Fags ever the perennial co- hare lots of chat. Elbows collects the keys the Hare gives the chat and we are off , promised not too long [he lied] the runners took off one way and the walkers the other. I had forgotten my torch and with my hash Name Stumbles that is not a good thing.


Staying close to those with torches the walkers kept up a good clip lead by our Patriarch Phantom, lots of good territory and lots of Asians must be a popular area for them in and out it would, Colonel was complain about Claremont being beaten by Perth. Crayfish, FT and I have no worries  we are Suby supporters and beat the pretend Grand Final team Peel on Sat. It’s a brisk pace but lots of new stuff for me not an area I have done a lot of running in. Soon I am at the back with Rhino and I pick up on his news, Phantom leads us through a check, wrong way and back ,Phantom I said this is going to be hour no way he said we are close to home. he lied at exactly 65 minutes we arrived home, Budgie got me a beer an upturned milk crate is a seat .


There is a flurry of excitement Barefoot taken a tumble I hear, Crayfish runs over for some water to  clean him up taking a quiz I see its quite nasty in particular the head gash. Its obvious it needs stitches and  maybe some concussion, Sir Tomarse  takes him to Fiona Stanley and we wish them the best. In Feb I went there after a tumble with a fractured and dislocated left thumb and waited in pain for three and one half hours. Gumby has a chat no fancy hat tonight, another beer and its circle time.


The GM gives us the chat raffles are on again to raise money for our big one, Kalgoolies run is also on that will be a blinder take a week to recover,  Bushranger is off to Fiji for Interhash and hoping for good weather. triple J gives us the rundown on the Royal wedding interesting!! The Scots are going for independence again as they are subsidized for 36 billion pounds a year now the taxes might go up. R A extraordinaire Emu stands up, this man has grown into the job short sharp hard hitting as an old RA I can only admire his style. A very funny joke about a lady on the job and the crowd lines up for burgers. And what burgers supreme is the only way I can describe them Mc Donald's eat your heart out these were tops. Another beer and all's right with the world.being a lonely bachelor I had a second to go. Top nigh [except for Barefoot] top run well done PH3.





Stumbles {MH3]


Waffle . Triple J- Glasgow was named by St, Columbus in the  7th century in ancient Gaelic it meant Green Place. I was sent there during the war all I remember it was bloody cold and my Uncle McGregor insisted on salt on the porridge. In 1983 when I went back to catch up the town centre was great but the Gorbals were much the same.

Pembo turns it on or Phantom M.I.A. Pack panics

Pembo turns it on




Phantom M. I . A Pack panics



A lovely warm autumn day  as I drove up ,caught up with my wife at the home then swung over to Willetton for my first Laksa run, Crayfish has been talking of this and giving top marks so I thought it was ideal to see the boys and enjoy a run with them. When I arrived at the car park they were wandering around with worried looks on their faces, what's up I said ,well the wagons missing and so is Phantom and we are not sure what to do he always gets things organised, personally I though the wagon was more important but kept this to myself. There must be a shortage of co hares as Pembo had selected Elbows.


All the old faces were there and I was flat out meeting and greeting, Barefoot must have gone via an aged care centre as he brought some old derelicts along to enjoy the  night , how thoughtful of him. Antman arrived with his crew and the pack built up still no sign of the wagon but its time to go. Trail marked with permanent paint so we use it again, a good energy saving measure, runners this way, walkers well two ways I went the wrong way and never really caught up. I'm with Colonel and his dog [no kids in sight] Mark 1 decided after 300 metres that was enough and turned for home, we battled on manfully keeping the walkers in sight but never catching them, the trail was well marked in fluorescent paint [green] and dodged in and out, a solid pace showed how unfit  I was the runners were behind us as we ducked down a pathway between houses. THEN a large fat lady came out and told us in no uncertain terms  to keep the noise down,this irritated Mole who gave her a big ON On whereupon she said  “I hope your arse blows up” to which Mole replied “ If it looked like you I hope it does” speeding up in case the husband came out, then thinking no chance she's got one ,we hit a park littered with dogs, Colonel gives the dog its head and there were so many bums to choose from it didn't know which one to sniff.


Still behind but at Pembos its a drink stop being late we got the dregs, Mrs Pembo handled the mob gracefully and we are off ,its nearing the hour not home yet, Rusty Nuts draws level and gives me the guff on the gossip then its home. A quick ice cold beer settled things down although Rumpole still looked a bit worried ,Elbows is dishing the drinks in a professional fashion I pointed out to Rumpole that as the wagon was late nobody got a drink before the run a cash saving measure, this cheered him up. All too soon its circle Horse takes control [well sort of] bellows out some general business , Emu takes over and the pack cop it including me as the oldest runner as this Sunday I am 81. Later that night I realised how unfit I am when I went to sit down.


Anyhow the queue forms in front of me was a lady in a bright green top , sari and a bandana obviously a local caught up by mistake no its Bushie letting his inner child out.We sit down Pembo dishes out a Barossa red Polecat and I  thought it was a cheeky wine and we were amused by its preciousness. Around comes the Laksa my bowl could have doubled for a hand basin, I tucked in had a chat to Emu and Neon and the foods great , more wine, then the raffle left the cash in the car so no chance. Cripes another dish I'm full to the brim so give it a miss but Budgie[67 kg wringing wet] finishes it off.


Full to the brim I bid adieu and headed for home being in the wrong lane I missed the Freeway and did the grand night time tour of the Fiona Stanley car parks back on track and little traffic dawesville looms. Thansk to all Pembo10/10.





RUN 2507     2017 AGPU at the Goat Farm in Greenmount

RUN 2507     2017 AGPU at the Goat Farm in Greenmount

The day was warm with a nice sea breeze blown into the foothills. The Hares Boner & Barcode had set the trail and were walking the supplies to the drink stop, when smoke was noticed in the south west corner on the run. Being on the side of the hill and under the phone tower, Boner got his five bar connection to dial 000. Phone calls in the Hills don’t always connect due to location.

The smoke was pushed up the hill from the Heritage Trail near Coulston Rd and the sirens of the Fire & Rescue vehicles could be heard heading to any spot the light tankers could mop up. The big tankers slowly negotiated the wash out access track towards the Goat Farm carpark. They had as much trouble picking their line of least resistance as The Mole did on his motorbike. This was an arson fire lit by someone on a motorbike.

The pack assembled with the runners heading off downhill attracted by the smell of smoke. A challenging run set by Boner, 3G took his phone so he could not get lost on Dad’s run. The walkers headed uphill & uphill with a false trail on the downhill southern slope. This was the warm up to get to the drink stop perched on top of a gravely knoll. Were all the wall blocks carried up to site? The walkers and our media man (Sherlock) gently navigated down the pea gravel surface to reach some BMX tracks and back to the bucket. The runners drank & carried the remaining Emu Bitter & Swan Draught cans down the hill to the table with the nibbles, all laid out for the last of the seagulls to devour.

Beers, food & awards were all taken up to the shelter for the Oscar evening (no red carpet) with only Bushy parading in a skirt. There were many down downs, even ICE for committee members and songs from Gumby. Anniversary mugs were handed out to Jaapie, Rumpole, Gnocchi, Budgie, Mumbles, Mark 1, Barefoot, & Crayfish. The Seagull committee tried to put shit on most of the members, with only a few standing still to receive the annual awards. Read all about it in the hard copy anal.

The Hound Dog Committee was introduced by the sounds of Elvis; he must be a walker by now. Action called the pack together to receive their nice new committee shirts and they actually fit.

The caterers from Jolly Belly in Glen Forrest prepared 3 curries & rice with pappadams for the pack. All the meat was eaten and that left some very tasty soup, too good to give to the dogs on the run.

A big thankyou to Seagull & his committee for the past years events. Barcode you can now put your feet up and relax with the family.

Run 2508 Action @ Carine Open Space

The first run under the guardianship of the new Hound dog committee set by none other than GM Action and ably assisted by Moses and that entrée on a lead.

Carine open space is always a good starting point for a winter run and its  guaranteed to be cold. Whoops, it was a summer run – bring back global warming!


So off we headed, after the initial falsie split the pack, across the grass into a 50km gale, over Oakley Rd to the highlands of Carine. Plenty of falsies as we wound around before crossing Beach Rd., but I think already we had two packs by this time.

After what I would estimate to be 2/3 of the run, we lost the trail and decided once giddy, to head home, arriving about the same time as the front runners.

There followed a great circle, even a welcome to country complete with smoking ceremony.

Tucker was most very tasty and a good thing it was hot, given rather cool conditions.

A good night Action.


[Thanks to Dickie & Rumpole for giving the van a thorough cleaning]

Topgun was there

Oh! no it's not from Topgun, not even Rhino.


It's the Red Baron 'Sawbones'…

Good details of  the rotary engine being primed and started – Fair Winds

1917 – 100-year-old footage of the Red Baron during WWI 

The following is a very rare piece of film, 100 years old. It shows Baron Von Richthofen, doing an external prior to a mission, as well as his putting on a flying suit prior to flight in cold weather. If you look close you will notice Hermann Goering.The Baron was shot down on 21 April 1918 by Roy Brown of the Royal Navy Air Services, a prelude of the R.A.F. The Aussies also claim that one of their machine gunners on the ground shot the Baron down. UK & Aussie Doctors, after the autopsy, stated that the fatal bullet was shot from above. The author of this has been very involved as a Director of the Roy Brown Museum in Carleton Place, the hometown of Roy. Many letters have been written over the past 3-4 years and finally, Roy Brown was inducted into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame on 4 June 2015…To think this film is almost 100 years old! If you’re interested in history or aviation, you cannot miss this footage. It was just posted online, and I've never seen anything like it. It's from 1917, and it's an up-close and personal look at the most legendary combat pilot who ever lived, the infamous Red Baron, Manfred Von Richthofen. Watch the extremely rare, extremely old footage and re-live history. ULTRA-RARE footage of the most famous fighter pilot ever.

2503 COLONEL and The Budge at the Usual Spot

COLONEL and The Budge at the Usual Spot

40 odd Hashers arrived at   Butlers Reserve expecting a re-HASH (good Word ) of  old runs. As it was he covered some NEW Territory but seems to have forgotten that PH3 uses P arrows   – not the bog-standard arrow of yesteryear.

The run itself used what public open space was available, crossed Scarb Beach Rd and wound thru the Mansions of Scarboro.

It was then down down to the beach to view the Topless Chicks (all gone since Harvey Weinstein was outed) and along beach tracks.

Crayfish, Bushie and others lost it here in a lane behind Coles (or was it the Check in the Middle of the road that confused them) but the rest of the Pack found their way to the steep hills around Kay St and the few cunninglingus FTs on Ventnor.

Pack and walkers all arrived back together after 50 mins Well Timed Good Run.

The RA climbed carefully to his Rostrum suffering from Plantar Fasciitis and it bloody hurts -ask Phantom –Budgie –Conman and told his joke about the Village wise Man and awarded the Bell to Q -apparently his Navigator fell asleep on way the way to Hash.

Poor Q gets the Bell or a Down Downs more than Scummy.

Pack took off for food table before RA had finished giving a score

Food was a change being Good Quality Burgers with all the trimmings.

Only Bad marks were for leaving Banner and Pourers behind last week and refusal to do a write up after Gumby put in a big effort He also refused to collect signs after the run –After 30 years he is still the only one convinced it is not his job. Phantom spat the dummy and refused to collect them so here’s hoping Colonel did the job

Good Night Good Run Good Food
