Run 2453: Stewie and Dave the Pom
Venue: Piney Lakes Reserve
The dynamic duo set this run in celebration of their 35th anniversary in the Hash having attended their first run on 11 January 1982. The weather although bleak and drizzly, held for them, which was just as well as the only shelter provided for the 40+ hashers was two temporary gazebos under one of which the food was to be served.
The run headed off into the reserve and made good use of the various paths and tracks to keep the pack together. From there the run headed into the nearby expensive looking housing.”Chinkville” was the proffered name for the suburb. At this stage the pack stretched out into two despite the best efforts of the Hares but came close to reuniting after a good loop through a park enabled those of us at the back to glimpse the front runners. This was followed by a sadistic loop near the run in which Elbows picked but didn’t back his judgement and yours truly was relieved to eventually see the parked cars..
For the benefit of drinkers the Duo had again provided neck cord attached anniversary stubbie holders complete with printed photos of the pair before the ravages of Hash set in. They have provided similar stubbie holders at regular intervals as I have them marking their anniversaries at 20, 25, 30 and now 35 years. . They had also invited Ee-ahhh and the Bali Banger from SOP as they were present at their first run.
The circle was the usual noisy affair with the usual number of returnees and anniversaries. I had asked my co-hare Cans to take note of these and give me a list afterwards but he failed to do so claiming I never asked him, which is quite possible, so let’s hope Action gives them mention in the next notice. I do recall Big Knob (aka Sir Knob before being renamed by the Subiaco Post) being brought up for appearing in the Australian Honours list. You’d think one Knighthood was enough but some people…!
Neon was very complimentary about the run before awarding it an 8.5 and this was followed by Toad in the Hole , mushy peas, chips and gravy . It was well received by members who failed to eat all the chips. The remaining chips were claimed by Horse for his chooks but word has it they didn’t make it home.
Well done Stewie and Dave, a good effort again and we look forward to the next one.
Run 2452 Gnocchi and at Kingsway Sporting Complex
The Dynamic Duo swooped into Madeley to work their magic and with mechanical efficiency to create this weeks “fun” run. Blessed with extensive parking, lights and good weather plus an experienced team what could possibly go wrong?
FT and Action led the pack at a cracking pace east over Hayman Drive round a quick loop before zig zagging in a northerly direction across Kingsway and once again west over Hayman Drive. A lot of false trails kept the pack together and guessing. Even Mole and FT weren't game to second guess the father and son team who had meticulously crafted a cunningly devious route. (No elbows that is a root).
Running up Gnangara Road the trail branched south but the previously confident pack faltered and called a “hash halt” to contemplate their navels before shortcutting. The majority, however, rediscovered the chalk taking them over the Kingsway Sporting Complex to the bucket.
Action awarded down downs to visitor Luke, his second run with us and hopefully he can build his fitness to a level sufficient to qualify as a PH3 member.
Very good to welcome back Deke especially when he brings a carton of Samuel Adams Ale. Happy birthday mate and as did birthday Budgie.
Returnee / visitor down downs to The Mole (a weekly occurrence}, Kilkenny and Antman.
Never one to shy away from publicity, Triple J decided to complete his run at 7:30 with an unnecessarily flamboyant arrival at the circle.
Moses incurred the wrath of the RA and was duly punished for suggesting the R A’s parking skills were less than adequate for a supposedly licensed driver.
Gnocchi’s mum had obviously spit the dummy over being asked yet again to provide Italian cuisine to the mob but he came up trumps (sorry, rude word} with cheese, biscuits and olives followed by an excellent and tasty burger and salad offering.
Good job by Gnocchi and Lasagne.
On On Stewie
2451 Triple and Rimmer use the city sites
Tripple J & Sir Knob organised elite parking, which no one used in front of Parliament House. We were directed to our run start which lead us heading towards the perth entertainment centre and into the city. Through perths construction site and over into Northbridge. After a nice big loop of Northbridge, we were lead back into the city were we got to see where Barcodes hard earned money goes. $5 Pints and then kicked out for a long ON HOME up St Georges tce.
Down Downs were given out for birthdays and returnees. 3G was getting a haircut and going to donate his hair to Tripple J.
The food was a well cooked Penne Pasta bolognese which even after Tripple J had the burning upside down was very nice!
Overall the run was scored 8/10. Good Job boys.
2450 Debbie and Sweeny at Coogee
We arrived a fraction late only to see the pack disappear over the horizon,it didn't take to long to catch up and get into the run.
We caught up just in time to investigate a check only to find one of our athletes had found it for us.
We discovered there are lots of hills in Coogee and we ran up most of them and down a few, as is usual in this area we ran around the four wheel drive track then through the new housing development then home, a decent run well marked and set out,except for fact that Lasagna and yours arrived back 15 mins after the bloody gutless shortcutting pack
The on sec called for a circle to be formed and we got going, firstly we had the sad news our friend Needles is having a few problems and we wished him all the best.
The down downs were given finishing with an excellent joke.
Then we moved onto the hares I'm not sure of the score given as I had already joined the food que. (7.5 Ed.)
A good run and very good burgers with all the trimmings, been a long time since I had pineapple on a burger a very nice touch indeed, well done to the hares and another good nights hashing.
RUSTY Brings in the New Year in Style
Rusty and Hippo had us meet on Sacred Ground (read CHURCH CAR PARK ) at Castledare for a joint run with H4 .One of H4’s guests thought a joint run meant mixed and brought his pretty Thai concubine—jealousy is a curse !!
We meandered thru the back streets of Wilson to a drink stop at Canning Council workshop –hard to believe but Canning CC still has some employees working.
From there the runners crossed Kent St Weir into the snake infested badlands of Ferndale .The short cutters and Walkers took the easy way home via the railway ,while the runners got to another drink stop , and then a river swim to get home.
Back at the bucket Capn had got back early (I guess his dog was tired ) and Colonel’s Snatch was tied up about 200 mtrs from any temptation- bugger it -no kids to bite.
Rusty then served up a fantastic meal of Garlic Prawns followed by Roast Pork and roast Veges—As usual his cooking timing was not spot on but who gives a continental –it was tasty and plentiful
An interesting run with good tucker Good effort Rusty
