I arrived at the advertised venue well before the Hash Foot was placed at the other car park! Apparently we were 'bumped' from the usual carpark and adjoining clubrooms because the Dockers had arrived.
So a quick drive to the alternate venue and all was good.
Action welcomed our visitors, two friends of Goliath, Dave and Winston from Melbourne. Elbows son Toby also joined us.
The run went around the park with a clever on back past the park before heading south west close to Leach Highway. After some clever false trails, the pack arrived at a crossing at Leach Highway before being directed on the correct route by a map holder.
Crayfish was happy to recognise the start of Preston Drive, one of Perth Hash Awesome Cycling Team’s (PHact) many Friday cycle routes.
After more clever false trails and parks we ran along the river past our start. Sir Knob pointed out a walkway which we nearly ran past. Then Bushie jogged past the young guns who were strolling across Shelley Park to the bucket.
Antman was running with Chunda and Chunda claimed to know the territory. After running about 2km without sighting any chalk or Leach Highway it became obvious Chunda didn’t really know the way. Antman used the maps on his smart phone until the battery went flat. But then they saw Haggis’s house so all was well.
8.26 km on the Bush-metre.
Sherlock, Captain and Aristo (or Polecat) were given down-downs. Polecat has misplaced the bell.
Q, 3G & SCB were given down-downs.
As Elbows indicated there would be no food his 8 points was downgraded to 7. Ahh. just a false trail, the food was a tasty soup with French bread sticks. Just the thing for a cold night with no heater.
On On to next week’s run in the northern suburbs.
