Run 2386 Fags & Captain’s “Back to the Future” in Como
The location for this extravaganza was Grayden Reseve, the scene of Kilkenny’s demonstration of parking skills and many other runs which typically take the pack in a loop around Collier Park Golf Course. Not for these two cunning time travellers!
There was no sign of the DeLorean powered by Mr Fusion Home Energy but Fags was there playing the part of “Doc” Emmett Brown while his assistant Captain fitted nicely into the part of Marty McFly. These two hashmen got together as partners in crime in setting runs somewhere in the late 70’s or early 80’s and they are still doing it in 2015 hence the references to time travel. Unfortunately time has not treated them as kindly as Doc and Marty when they ventured into 2015 complete with its flat screen TV’s, video phones and hovering skateboards. These two veterans still make up a formidable team and their runs display cunning tricks that keep the pack guessing.
The runners who dared to take on this pair set off on time, some of them resplendent in their new customised sleeveless ensembles. The trail started in its customary direction alongside the golf course but when everyone expected it to continue around the golf course towards Bentley, these two had the pack lost in the maze of Karawarra. Then it snaked westwards towards Canning Highway before heading north again around Penrhos College and home.
Phantom meanwhile had herded his walking pack well and they arrived home bang on 50 minutes after starting out only to be beaten home by those compulsive short cutters, Mole and FT. The Circle got underway with Seagull handing out the usual down downs for birthdays etc. Thanks to Chunda and Sir Knob for their beers.
Haggis is back! Phantom read out how Chunda got his name somewhere in Asia and Chunda obliged with a practical demonstration. Mumbles alias Ritchie McCaw was also called up for something to do with rugby and the rest of the night is lost in the mists of time.
Food was Fags’ cordon bleu speciality of baked beans with Italian sausage and bacon. He has obviously not heard about the carcinogenic properties of processed meats during his absence in a worm hole. But it was good comfort food and there was not a lot left so well done!
