We met in Stirling Mafia hash territory, aka Lasagna’s’s starting point. Xmas brought along his new invention, The Social Distancing Rope, which consisted of a long piece of rope with loops tied at 1.5m intervals, so that each hash man, when holding onto his allocated loop was 1.5 mts from the hashman in front and 1.5mts from the one behind.
A brilliant invention that he should patent and send to the Government for more widespread use.
Once again we split into two groups, the runners headed east from the car park in Stirling out towards Balcatta and Princeton whilst the walkers headed West over the Freeway to Gwelup before returning over the Freeway at Karrinyup Road and back into Stirling.
Talk about social distancing, we were kilometers apart.
As it was BYO, everyone retrieved their own supply and a general discussion was had by all.
As Virtual Hash was looking for new virtual organiser, it appears that virtually nothing happened. Details virtually not available.
We met in Tranby House car park Maylands. A number of inundated hashmen assembled for the second get together after the Wuhan Flu Suspension. It rained, quite a lot actually, but not to be daunted we set off, however we were inundated.
Once again we split into two groups, one who classed themselves as runners and others who rightly called themselves walkers. After a general idea of where we were going, Moses led the runners off. The walkers, headed off along the river towards Garret Road Bridge, when out of the dark behind them, came a black clad figure calling On On as he passed through the pack. It was dark, he was dressed in black, “Who the fuck was that? Must be a hashman.” It was Soft Top who made it this week after missing last week’s because his soft top also had a soft bottom with a flat tyre. We continued onto Garret Road, returning through Maylands.
Social distancing was practised perfectly again and Rumpole had the bucket under a suitable light, so hashmen approached individually to get their ration.
It worked very well, with everyone respecting the rules.
However, we do need to split into three groups; Fast Runners, Mid Runners and Walkers.
The Virtual Hash continued as well with Bushie driving it with virtual help from Gumby. Well Done!
INTERIM HASH ON MONDAY NIGHTS We are expecting the imminent release of new relaxations of the Covid19 lockdown, which we anticipate may allow us to re-commence “normal” hash runs, starting 2 June. Probably, food will have to be take away package food service rather than normal pots, queuing etc for some time yet.
We have now had two weeks where we have had a small group of runners and walkers meeting for a run/walk and a beer and this has worked pretty well. The plan is to offer the same for the remaining Mondays in May to exercise together maintaining social distancing.
Nothing is perfect in this world but for both weeks we have had some hashers turn up and there were no audible complaints.
Monday 11th, we will gather at “la seconda casa di Lasagna” Sheldrake Reserve, where Nanny will act as live hare for a ±6km run. If you plan to arrive, please give us the nod so that we can ensure there is enough beer. ONON Moses
Being a Tuesday run the Perth Harriettes were also running. BUT because of the COVIUD-19 lockdown were we really running? The lockdown had been relaxed slightly so groups of 10 were allowed to exercise together so long as they practiced the 1.5 metres social distancing.
At the Bushranger and Mary Poppins household in Yokine there were two events:-
A Perth Hash House Harriers Zoom Virtual Circle at 6:00 PM
A Perth Harriettes group of 5 run at 6:30 PM followed by a Mary Poppins meal.
Meanwhile,somewhere far far away in a distant Galaxy …. there was a Horse’s Rat Bag – Special Message from Polly on Mon 27/04/2020 9:40 PM.
On Sec’s Message
I know that we haven’t had a run for several weeks and some hashmen have found that tough going. So I am writing this slowly so that everyone understands.
Today is Monday,
It is a Public Holiday
When there is a Public Holiday Perth Hash House Harriers run on Tuesday.
Tomorrow is Tuesday.
If you look at an archived calendar from the past you can see that we were supposed to have Run 2622 combined with the other clubs for ANZAC Day.
The Wuhan Flu scuttled that effort.
Now that the restrictions have been eased, we are going to have a “run” under the new rules.
It will be with a live hare/hares or maybe not.
Groups of no more than 10 will set off for 45 -55 mins and arrive back as though there had been a perfect trail set.
This was Polecat’s good idea. Well done I reckon.
There will be NO FOOD.
There will be NO CHIPS
Each group of 10 will have a gofer to go to the bucket and collect the rations for the other 9.
We don’t want to stuff it up and have it all cancelled again.
If you have some spare hand sanitiser, please bring it. Rumpole has been unable to source a sufficient amount, even though the distilleries have been making it. You get a very interesting cocktail if you use Whipper Snapper Gin and it has been labeled incorrectly.
There won’t be a circle and there won’t be any downdowns.
So that is the story to date.
We’ll see you there if you are coming. Otherwise we won’t

What Happened Monday Run A3E hex
Well I finally got the date and run right at the top, after a pointer from Bushie. Thanks
We met in East Perth. A number of intrepid, intoxicated, inoculated hashmen assembled for the first get together after the Wuhan Flu Suspension.We split into two groups, a number who classed themselves as runners and some others who rightly called themselves walkers. After a general idea of where were going the runners led by Polecat, headed off. The walkers, changed leadership very quickly deferring to the superior local knowledge of Ramrod, headed off along the river to Claisebrook, crossing over the high bridge and then heading to the Matagarup Bridge as most of us hadn’t been there before. Along the edge of the stadium and back over the Windan Bridge and along the river to home, where we encountered a late comer in Grizzly.Social distancing was practised perfectly and Rumpole had the bucket under a suitable light, so hashmen approached individually to get their ration.It worked very well, with everyone respecting the rules.
There was also a Virtual Hash online. No details yet as to how many attended.
