Run No 1821:

...... the night was dark and stormy as we gathered at Otto’s Grot,     (see note 1)
‘twas remarked that we would be better off, snuggled in the cot.
But alas, the stout and hearty gathered for the fray,
‘cos we all knew it was ....  the second day of May.
Some notes we had to read to tell us where to go,
Which hasher called the hare, a useless so and so?                          (see note 2)
Dint did his own hash which caused us great concern,
Tracka tripped over a chain
But really when all was said and done, the night was not so drab,
We were all indebted for the munificence of Crab.

FC did his usuals and down-downs did abound,
Tracka won the hub for bouncing off the ground.

Note 1:  the wind blew the “to” off the end of Grotto.
Note 2: the original text incorporated the word “blunt” but your scribe couldn’t find a word to rhyme with this!

Run No 1819

What a night! What a dog fight! Something to Crow about! A “relatively” short run and walk preceded the shenanigans of Crows 50th. A gourmet feast of Crowing variety and proportion was laid before the assembled mass including the not often sighted Nez, Noddi Bob and Yep. Good to see them! We also welcomed new hasher Steam Shovel. A product of our hosts! Maybe we will be seeing more of Yep?
FC orchestrated his usual fine lippery, and the hub was “awarded” to Cistern for having kneeling pads on his knees.

Thank you Soff, Landing and Steam Shovel for your organisation and presentation.

Run No 1818:

Starting from the Penguin Boat Ramp 18 ‘appy ‘ashers chased Cheese around the parks and streets of Penguin. Thankfully we didn’t catch him (well maybe Thrust did!) 

The walkers wandered while the runners waited for their return whilst admiring Cheese’s new addition to his stable of automobiles. It even has a spare engine in the back!

The on-on was at Pioneer’s place with roast in rolls followed by a delicious variety of carbohydrates and sugar.

Lower-lip Cheese was the master of ceremonies as down downs were dispensed to all the unwary. Tinsel demanded Flasher conduct the raffle which he did with aplomb. (or was it agrape?)

Koff announced she was shaving off her hair in aid of a work colleague suffering from cancer. Hashers were invited to sponsor her efforts, Details of how sponsorship can be made will be advised when someone can make sense of it.

GV won The Hub for having succumb to an unfortunate incident involving a bicycle and a fence.

Thank you Bastard and Pioneer for your hospitality.

Run No 1817

Tracka and Tinsel’s Hash at Bells Parade took the form of a power pole run. Extremely well set and we didn’t get lost. (We just didn’t know where we were!)

A convivial on-on at the BBQ Shelter was enjoyed and the usual tom-foolery ensued. Dint won The Hub for property stealing with Eweturn a close runner-up for nicking some poor baby’s toy gonk en-route,
Shame I hear you say!!

Thanks Tinsel and Tracka.

Run No 1816

Fifteen Hashers gathered at Scurrah Street for a feisty foray.
(in the warmth of the gas heater we wanted to stay)
We trecked under the Underpass as quiet as mice
then along the highway for kilometres thrice.
Then up the banks and across a paddock,
(and for the on-on we didn’t have haddock.)
Poor Flasher got caught in an electric fence
and “flashes” ensued for some moments hence.
Eventually all returned to FC’s
for gourmet stew without any peas.
Rhubarb and apple topped with ice cream
was just what we needed to boost our esteem.
Down downs ensued and raffle won,
it was all over before it begun.
Crow has the hub for run 1817 –
if he don’t wear it he won’t go to heaven.

Thanks FC

Run 1814 Report

Due to the Basslink Cable being in a state of non-function Lantern had to re-route the Hash because of excess water flow in the Wilmot River. We therefore have something to thank Basslink for, because we didn’t get our shoes wet.

Lantern’s trail roughly followed the river downstream before heading for the hills. We gained altitude so quickly that Eagle’s nose bled and Overdose had to take big breaths. Then a sudden descent down a Mountain Bike Trail over ramps, jumps, logs, roots and sliding ironstone pebbles. To the delight of all the daring dashers the trail came out of the jungle to the smell of Lantern’s delectable delicacies roasting on the portable oven and a welcoming fire.

What a feast!! (Lantern is taking reservations for any upcoming hasher’s wedding reception catering)

Lip FC conducted his usual Lippery with Bastard being awarded The Hub for not wearing it. (I think). Tracka’s raffle held Hashers breathless while the lottery was  overseen by the duty government supervisors.

Thank you Lantern.

On On!!

Run No. 1815 - 28th March

Hare FC will be setting from 4 Scurrah St. Ulverstone. Usual start time of 6.30ish. No special instructions other than bring left over Easter Eggs!

March 17, 2016

Run No 1814:

Monday 21 March @ 6.30 - bring a change of shoes and a torch, just in case.

Lantern is taking us back to Paloona Dam Road again. Hopefully he will have better weather and won't get his trail washed away minutes after setting it.

Same place as last week, about 1km up the Paloona Dam Road. On-On will be back at Lantern's place. If the weather is horrible again, just go straight to Lantern's.

Run No. 1813

Run No. 1813: Monday 14th is a rehash of Eweturn's Paloona Dam Burnie Run from a few weeks back. Run starts about 1km up the Paloona Dam Road at 6.30pm. Bring a torch because it might get a bit dark in the wild. On on back at Eweturn's @ 66 Turners Beach Rd.

March 2, 2016

Run No 1811 was also Leap Year R*n No 6 and was hosted by the Phantom Hasher. The Phantom Hasher had obviously been working on the run for the last four years, because he put in a magnificent effort and lead the pack on a 7.5km commando course across the Don Heads. Obstacles included electric fences that had to be rolled under, cliffs that had to be crawled up and trains that had to be dodged. But if the penguins could do it, so could we.

The raffle was run. Not sure who won, apart from Eweturn who drew her own ticket with the help of ticket counting skills, and then fairly and squarely had her ticket drawn again. So she didn't feel too bad about it for very long.

The on-on was catered for by Dominos. The Lip had the night off. The hub wasn't spotted.

Guardy is still away but you will still receive your Sunday Texts from his outdated mobile phone.

Next Weeks Run:

No 1812: Boner from TBA

February 17, 2016

Been There Done That:

Run No 1809 was hosted by Cistern in freezing weather. (well not quite that bad). The walkers and runners endured the hills of West Ridge, Penguin to find, or not find, the HHH. Some short-cutting walkers only went one block and returned to the sanctuary and the warmth of the Hash House.

The raffle was run and won by CRAFT.

Lip FC gave downs for various multiple and other nefarious activities and Bastard was awarded The Hub again because of the strap adjustments he had spent hours getting right. It was considered dis-respectful that he only wore it for one block.
Thank you Cistern for the run and the splendiferous on-on.

Guardy will be away until the 20th March but you will still receive your Sunday Texts from his outdated mobile phone.
