Run 2522 – Shakin’ at Maylands Golf Course

Our first really chilly night running this year and fortuitously Shakin organized the rain to hold off.

Plenty of car parking and lights that worked opposite Maylands golf club.

Shakin, ably assisted by Polecat and a youthful Mitch from the relative pool, set a pretty good run. Well marked, adequate checks and falsies.

We began in the newer section of the suburb and wended our way anti-clockwise towards Guildford road at which point, the pack split at the recreation centre, never to be rejoined.

Triple and Scummy, being visionally challenged,  found it quite difficult as they were both saving the batteries in their torches.

There were 3 or 4 very long stretches which is the dilemma faced when setting runs in older suburbs.

Good length if you did the full run 60-70 minutes

Back at the bucket, a good circle, good tucker and even the luxury of a fire in Shakin’s designer bbq.

Thanks for your effort  Shakin.

Run 2521 – Raindrops at Beasley Park, Leeming

Heading south on the car park we just beat Budgie at 5:59 in the wagon where an anxious pack awaited the arrival of the bucket at a place known as Beasley Reserve.  Whether this was named after the famous footballer (de-frocked stockbroker Simon), the dyed in the wool republican who was accepted the position of Governor representing the Queen Kim or as I suspect after Elbow's mate the right honourable Kim Snr. 


By this time, time to start the run in pitch black through the entrails of Leeming, skirting

the golf course and having not a clue where we were running/walking. Terrific run with

walkers constantly intermingled with runners with all arriving back to the bucket close

to the hour. Raindrops and Fags to be complimented. 


Entertainment on the run: Barefoot doing a limp fall and having to be carted off to Fiona Stanley complements of Sir Tom. Silly old fart should be with the walkers.


Update on Mandurah Hash from Stumbles who holds at least four positions hon sec –

newsletter editor and keeping the 20 over sexed females away from the 8 males most of whom are useless due to prostate operations etc.  He is looking for a replacement!!


Back to the circle where Horse read out the usual list of cumming events and told his

normal limp dick joke at the end (better than usual). Down downs for Double G (Triple J) on 20 years of hashing and Pitt for something I cannot recall, probably his birthday.


Dockers fans duly punished for the weekends inept performance again. Sack Ross!!


Before Emu had his say Double G once again put on a cameo performance dwelling on the Royal Wedding emulating Bishop Currie's drivel but showing that despite his Scottish origins he is a royalist to the end.


Then the script shuffler rabitted on without his usual muso taunts wrapping up the night

giving Raindrops and Fags nine and a half out of ten for an excellent run. 


Here endith!!!


Run 2521 – Raindrops with Co-Hare Fags

Subject: run




Yes it was the hares favorite song but it was Barefoot that fell on his head[ more later] I arrived early at the start ,the few there had their backs to the wall soaking up the suns last rays. They came dribbling in Skid in his Merc with the top down, its always down as the lifting mechanism is broken ,wait for the rain on Thursday. Soon near to the start a goodly crowd was milling around, in came the hares BB and Fags ever the perennial co- hare lots of chat. Elbows collects the keys the Hare gives the chat and we are off , promised not too long [he lied] the runners took off one way and the walkers the other. I had forgotten my torch and with my hash Name Stumbles that is not a good thing.


Staying close to those with torches the walkers kept up a good clip lead by our Patriarch Phantom, lots of good territory and lots of Asians must be a popular area for them in and out it would, Colonel was complain about Claremont being beaten by Perth. Crayfish, FT and I have no worries  we are Suby supporters and beat the pretend Grand Final team Peel on Sat. It’s a brisk pace but lots of new stuff for me not an area I have done a lot of running in. Soon I am at the back with Rhino and I pick up on his news, Phantom leads us through a check, wrong way and back ,Phantom I said this is going to be hour no way he said we are close to home. he lied at exactly 65 minutes we arrived home, Budgie got me a beer an upturned milk crate is a seat .


There is a flurry of excitement Barefoot taken a tumble I hear, Crayfish runs over for some water to  clean him up taking a quiz I see its quite nasty in particular the head gash. Its obvious it needs stitches and  maybe some concussion, Sir Tomarse  takes him to Fiona Stanley and we wish them the best. In Feb I went there after a tumble with a fractured and dislocated left thumb and waited in pain for three and one half hours. Gumby has a chat no fancy hat tonight, another beer and its circle time.


The GM gives us the chat raffles are on again to raise money for our big one, Kalgoolies run is also on that will be a blinder take a week to recover,  Bushranger is off to Fiji for Interhash and hoping for good weather. triple J gives us the rundown on the Royal wedding interesting!! The Scots are going for independence again as they are subsidized for 36 billion pounds a year now the taxes might go up. R A extraordinaire Emu stands up, this man has grown into the job short sharp hard hitting as an old RA I can only admire his style. A very funny joke about a lady on the job and the crowd lines up for burgers. And what burgers supreme is the only way I can describe them Mc Donald's eat your heart out these were tops. Another beer and all's right with the world.being a lonely bachelor I had a second to go. Top nigh [except for Barefoot] top run well done PH3.





Stumbles {MH3]


Waffle . Triple J- Glasgow was named by St, Columbus in the  7th century in ancient Gaelic it meant Green Place. I was sent there during the war all I remember it was bloody cold and my Uncle McGregor insisted on salt on the porridge. In 1983 when I went back to catch up the town centre was great but the Gorbals were much the same.

Run 2520 – Pitt and Co-Hare Cans @Brown Park Recreation Centre, Swan View

The Combined Experience of 2 Peters in Swan View – Hare Pitt with Co-Hare Cans

The old faithful of Brown Park turned on great weather and plenty of parking. The Runners set off out of the park and turned right up the hill to find the first of many false trails. There was clearly ample supplies of chalk available in the Eastern suburbs as the Pack followed the trail with numerous False Trails and Checks.

The Walkers were honoured by the inclusion of FT (winged) and BIRDMAN (on the piss at lunch) and were able to easily follow the first half of the trail in close contact with the Pack as the False Trails kept both groups together. Walkers left the Pack which then did a big loop arriving back at the DEAD Heart of Midland.

The trail then meandered through an area of Swan View that did not benefit any short cutting, except for SEAGULL who with all his speed and guile did not have the fortitude to go back to the pack when he took a wrong turn. The last sighting of SEAGULL  before he took off home, he mentioned that the Front Runners included NEON, BARCODE, MASTITIS, Triple J and even SKID, most likely due to the 13 False Trails he encountered to that point (but who’s counting?) He arrived back with the walkers 10 minutes in front of the Pack.

It’s a good job we kept running as there wasn’t much street lighting and you never know who’s lurking behind those rusty utes parked in front of the run-down houses.

A great 60-minute run with numerous FTs and Checks bringing the pack in more or less together.  As the old girlfriend said “EXPERIENCE COUNTS”.  Future Hares please note!

Back  at the Bucket we welcomed back RAINDROPS, with his new hair colour – he lets work get in the way of fun (Hash ). HORSE told his customary joke but needs to use bigger type so as NOT to screw up the punchline. Or maybe he needs a new joke? RHINO  had a customary down down (probably because he was late again ) and Birthday Boy BUSHIE also due to his inability to send a simple email to the correct address and therefore upsetting Hash Splash.

EMU gave us his usual quotable quote and followed with a joke covering Nationalities /Religon/Race. Keep ‘em coming EMU, stuff the PC.

FOOD was tasty beef stew and potato, plenty to go around.

A great night, perfect weather, good food and a great run. Thanks Pitt and Cans.


Run 2519 – Gnocchi @ Viking Softball Club car park, Kingsway

Run 2519 – Gnocchi @ Viking Softball Club car park, Kingsway

It's always worth making an effort to attend the runs set by the
Gnocchi/Lasagne duo and this was no exception. Familiar parking at the
Kingsway reserve on a cool, crisp but fine night saw a large pack of walkers
and runners head off in the same direction over Hartman drive and into the
depths of Landsdale. A short deviation off the road and through a narrow
gap in a fence saw the runners vying with the lumbering walkers to access
the small gap. This threatened to split the runners and for a short while it
did but the back eventually linked up with the front through some good trail
setting. I even had FT pass me twice !! On through a nice bit of bush and
limestone track saw us descend into deepest Darch ( which I always thought
was at the top end of the Champs Elysees). On we went, with ,God help us, a
Joint Master in the form of Mastitis actually doing his job and ensuring the
back kept in touch and made it to the drink stop at the Kingsway tavern.
Here we were greeted by Gnocchi pouring us all an ale. This was followed by
a hardish run home to be greeted by a table of nibbles which I missed
seeing because of the hungry hordes surrounding the table and scoffing them.

Horse eventually got the circle going with notable returnee Kilkenny plus
Wagon, myself and one or so others. Birthdays were Sir Tom and Nanny.
Jerrycan was invited to sum up the golf day which for once was fine and
named the winners of the 3 ball competition (whatever that is) whom I can't
recall and Rhino as the trophy winner even though it was suggested he was
the only competitor.
Gumby then made us aware that The Mole had backed into his car therefore
necessitating a drink. At the same time it was also brought to attention
that the Hash Lunch at the Thai place in Mandurah was a great success.
Emu's spiel followed with a notable joke about Paddy and a Muslim and for
those long sufferers who had put up with Emu berating them about problems
with his neighbor he announced she was moving and he'd at long last won!! He
didn't mentioned the proposal to build a Mosque on the site!

The run was justly awarded high 8s and the food was chicken burgers cheese
slices and salad in ample quantities.

As always a top effort by Gnocchi and Lasagne



Run 2518 – Triple J @ MacDonald Park, Padbury

Run 2518 – Triple J @ MacDonald Park, Padbury

The run started from Macdonald Park in Padbury. A location the we have been many times before. Off we headed at 6pm where we were greeted with our first false trail……..  and this is where everything turned to shit. We finally found some P’s after running around in circles for 10 minutes. The run headed out towards whitfords ave, this was as far a I got. We couldn’t ( we being FT and I ) find trail from there, so we had a nice run back down whitfords ave, running past Tripple J’s house where we could smell the Bunnings Sausages being cooked up! And back on home down marmion ave.

Arriving back at the bucket, I heard some rumours of Tripple J going to win the Dunny seat award this year, but lets not get too carried away.

I personally covered 8.3kms, so if I was to find the chalk and complete the whole run, I would imagine it would have been around the 12km mark! The poor walkers were out there for 1 hour and 15 mins! Poor blokes!

Q and 3G turned 18, Rumpole, Gumbi and Botak  had birthdays aswell, although a lot older than 18. We had 1 visitor – Putrid, and Gumbi and Christmas were our returnees. Gnocchi (me) was called up for my second 10 year anniversary Mug.

Emu got Tripple J up to talk about the run, which apparently took him 2 hours to set. Tripple J was disappointed we didn’t get to see the topless lady he had organised behind the Craigie leasure centre! But apparently his next 50 run starts will be from the same location until he gets it right.

His score was 4 for the run, plus 1 for the light and plus 1 for the girl walking her dog on the run! So that gave him a grand total of 6 /10.

We were served with Gourmet Bunnings sausages which have left me 5 times over. Oh, and horse was upset there were no greens!

Good job Tripple J!!
