Forty four pitched up for this great annual event, returned to the rotunda after a couple of years round the corner. A number of members made nice noises and all enjoyed the view and the breakfast set-up. There were seven visitors in the number and if they spread the word too much, next year numbers could be even bigger.
Grandmother Phantom set a very fine run, well-marked and managed to build in some change to a route that we have plied many times. Granny was not too happy with Stewie’s leading the walkers in an anti-clockwise direction after receiving clear and written orders to go clockwise. Stewie has appealed to the Hash Court to be pardoned before the Committee goes out. If Trump can pardon all, why can’t we?
Out past the squadron and across the lawns before the sun got too hot and then into the leafy shady groves with some delightful running around the Octagon and the lovely admin buildings. 40 minutes of pleasant but not doddling running led by our Italian Stallion and the twice the former’s age Dutch cyclist (on the day) who plugs walls. Did not clock distance but something approaching 5km is the guess.
A few weeks ago at Mumbles run, two geniuses who were the co-hares got lost and could not get back to the OnOn in time. As a follow up to that; the first viz. Colonel decided to let his dog attack the ranger quietly driving past the rotunda where we could have been given a very hard time and the second Budgie came to the run, late again and was wearing his wife’s pyjama pants. Not pretty!
The usual crew did the honours and everything ran like a Swiss clock (or train if you prefer) Breakfast was a bun with bacon, snagger, tomato and fried egg. Tasty and hot. Well done boys! To you one and all, the Committee’s wishes that you have a serene festive season and a healthy and happy 2021.
