Run 2504 Phantom and Sir Knob perform in Hollywood

We go swimming very Monday. Well we did this Monday after gathering at Hollywood Bowling Club near Karakatta cemetery
Before heading out into the rain we were treated to an entertaining reParking of the van by acting tugger-in-chief Budgie. Well done to the driver and a variety of advisers resulting in the van being brought to the very adequate shelter without losing the solar panel on the van roof.
The hares looked like pastry chefs after trying to set a trail in the continuous deluge but it in the end was necessary to employ Action as a live hare as the actual hare, Phantom, had far more pressing matters such as keeping dry.
That way encouraged Phantom pointing to a waist deep puddle and off went the pack.
Despite a torrent of abuse from Phantom, the co-opted walk guide, Stewie, chose discretion over valour and led the walkers in the opposite direction.
The fair weather hashers who stayed at home missed a great run in good territory. Action led the way south then over Smythe Road into a section of bush adjoining karakatta cemetery. Completing the loop around new housing built on the old Hollywood High School site and across Dot Bennet Park then eventually cross the railway bridge to Stubbs Terrace.
A very wide loop took Action and his band of hardy followers into the bush at the rear of Shenton Colleges and back through the tunnel under Shenton Park Station. It was necessary to swim over the pedestrian crossing and into Evans Street, down an alley to Onslow where the first arrow was spotted under a shop awning.
A straight forward route arriving back at the bucket in about 40 minutes to coincide with the walkers.
The circle was well roofed and provided with excellent lighting under the club rooms. A 36 year anniversary down down for Stewie and a second one for birthday No 68. Some people are simply lucky that they do not show their age.
Barcode was a returnee from The Indonesian Woodlark Island (some people get all the good jobs).
Our Religious advisor, Tripple J was enthusiastically received and provided a wet evening with generous helpings of dry humour.
The food was chicken and salad rolls served by a Phantom wearing a suspicious surgical glove. I did notice Phantom had been wearing that all evening and was obviously intended to ensure any germs collected or chicken grease didn’t taint his skin.
Very well done to Phantom and Sir Knob. Good on you both for planning, setting and ensuring a fun evening. But a special thanks to the 30 odd hash men who turned out in very inclement weather to support your efforts, it was well worth it.
On On

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
