2456 Birdman doe it Barefoot

What a great rum, to fart the new hash committee (seagull's flock up) term in orifice. The start of the rum was the best of the year so far,but dont ask the incoming on sec as he was 10 minutes late. Hopefully not a sign of things to cum.

We left the familar claremont golf course and ran down to the train station where we proceeded to lose the trail. Gnocchi was first to pick it up again and we were off, around the back of the old footy oval and into the over priced units. We picked up the late comers including the hon sec and crossed back over Davies road into the lake claremont parklands. And lost the trail again. That didnt stop the SCB's though who joined up with the ghost who walks. The runners led by sweeney picked up the trail and headed up to the primary school. It was rumoured that around here FT ran a FT. Highlight of the year so far.

We zigged and zagged our way back, crossing the scotch fillet school plush green ovals. Bet they dont adhere to the twice a week sprinkler rule, or they can afford the fine. Back to the bucket in 51 odd minutes.

The flock of seagulls got off to a great start with the hon sec having the crowd eating out of his palm with his poetry recital about Sir Knob.

Also Rumpol was sort of awarded a non existant anniversary mug.

Th RA filled the circle with joy and merriment, or according to some, a solid dose of bull shit. The run was awarded a solid 7/10.

The hares served up a very respactable helping of hamburgers.

Well done hares





"Alert!!! AGPU Run Site Change Due to Floods."
That was the subject of Action's urgent email on Monday afternoon. Apparently ten times the February's average monthly rain, falling in just 24 hours, was enough to cause flooding of our intended runsite. So, we'll relocate to Lilac Hill; easy. Skid stationed himself at the originally advertised runsite to redirect those who don't read their emails. Too kind of him.
A good sized pack, split about equally between walkers and runners, set off over the bridge back into Guildford at 18.10. Fifty five minutes later the frontrunners, together with most of the walkers, were back, having ran, shuffled, or strolled through the nicer and less nice parts of Guildford and Woodbridge.
Phantom and Sir Knob had manned a drink stop outside the Woodbridge Tavern. A quick opinion poll indicated that nine out of ten hashmen would have preferred a cold beer in the tavern to a warm Gatorade outside!
Excellent finger food prepared us for the circle. Many returnees were present, including Dave the Pom + offspring, Wagon, Deke, Deeply Boring, SCB and Sawbones. Action presented anniversary mugs to Sawbones and Deke.
The year's awards came next; see Annual for the full list. Downdowns were received by, amongst others, Barefoot, Colonel and Sir Knob.
To thunderous applause, Skid thanked the outgoing committee for a job splendidly done.
Seagull then introduced his new committee; a good mix of experienced veterans and novices.
Excellent pizza from Vince's woodfired truck was a fitting conclusion to another great year's hashing.

2454 CLUB with NO BEER Hillbillies Pitt and Cans shine

2454 CLUB with No BEER     PITT /CANS in Hillbilly territory


There is no doubt that age and experience brings wisdom .About 140 years of age and about 90 years of experience between these two resulted in a top run in often used territory .The  trail included lots of bush, lots of FTs and lots of thrills and spills .

It is reported that both ACTION and ANTMAN went A over T and for thrills the pack was told to “F**k off Private Property “ by an Octogarian ,wheelchair bound paraplegic . The lads quaked in their shoes . SEAGULL and GNOCCHI both vying to lead were trapped several times by well places FTs


As a result of good setting and superior navigation by Dear Leader  ,PHANTOM the runners and walkers arrived at the bucket within 3 minutes of each other . Amazingly serial short cutter BIRDMAN also arrived at the head of the pack at the same time !!


Back at the bucket BIRDY featured again when it was pointed out that on arrival he had locked BAREFOOT in (not out of ) the car .He was released after his plaintive cries for help were heard . ANTMAN’s  Birthday was celebrated with his Birthday Cartoon of (wait for it ) Lite beer with expired date –well Lite anyway . It was just as well because for the first time in a long time the Bucket was drunk dry ,by 40 members only


The food was a delicious  Mediterranean Chicken  Curry which topped off a terrific run which would be worth at least 9 as a score.
