Badge of Honour

Tracka had set this run to hurt us, that was obvious; payback for some reason. We were told to be in Nook at the golf club right on time, 1730hrs, and not be late. Arriving at 5:29pm was too late apparently. Thruster darted out of her car to catch the skimpy pack made up of a few goody-two-shoes who arrived before time. GoneAgain started coughing in the same direction and Prickle briskly walked past him, dodging the boogers, up the hill.

The track unashamedly went 150m vertically up the Badgers range to Kimberly's Lookout, followed the 3km track in a text-book fashion. Fortunately there were no tricky checks as most Hashers had to go solo. The skimpy front pack made it to the top in record time and turned around while GoneAgain was the first to complete the solo  ascent. He was followed by Poxy and his PB (with dog in tow, or should I say towed by the dog) who had Dint on the heels. All parties made it safely down at dusk, in time to make their way to the Sheffield pub serving a BBQ.

See the trig? Yes, it is proof I made it.... or at least my phone did!

Prickle (above) got punished for having another birthday, and Dint did not bother to burn the Burnie Trash, handed out by their GM, because no Burnie runners were present. Bit-of-this, the Burnie GM, was rightfully insulted.

Beer and cake was head by all (Thruster took the cake as per usual...).

Tracka and FC also took the cake

Dial 000 for HOFT

Dyke's HOFT was close to being cancelled when Dyke realised it was 12:13pm and no one had shown at the Hole in the Road behind Penguin, but then the punters appeared over the hill. Full of enthusiasm we descended down to the Leven River and marched along to our designated lunch-spot at Purton's Flat. Dyke had arranged beer, champagne and other goodies to handicap us on the way back home

Half way along the walk we were surprised by Towels and SlackMac who intercepted our trail. They had been alerted to our operation by the HHH inteligence faction.

Dyke had planted interesting artefacts for all to enjoy. See below the FoMoCo diesel powered pump that tickled BB and R's fancy. Personally I was more intrigued by the Launy ballerina and Puss in Boot's swishy pants, or whatever was making the squishy sound in there...

Dyke hospitality was enjoyed after the run which got us re-energised to partake in pizza in Penguin... Next HOFT is Montezuma's Falls with Flasher (hope he learned from today's mini-HOFT).

See you all tonight at the Devonport Pool, bottom of Steele Street.

Tinsel and Tracka's Bash

Hard yakka going up and down through the bush between Railton and Spreyton, past some killer dogs and back again... Super-sized snags on the Barbie at the Axeman's Hall of Fame and so another hash was won.

Flasher had a few down downs for his 300th run, GoneAgain set off a fart-bomb, and a large contingent of tourists (including Andre from Brazil who didnt like the meat but ate 4 snags none the less) were present compliments of Killer who got his people mover in action for the occasion.

  • Small HOFT set by Dyke next Sunday (22 March 09) at noon from the Hole in the Road near the Motocross track in the Dial Range outside of Penguin. Pub-meal afterwards.
  • Next run from the Devonport Pool carpark - see below blog post...

Guardsvan was accidentally renamed van Guard,  probably inspired by his artistic streaks or tendency to bite off ears. Our reporter, AgainGone, from the van clan himself apologises profusely and has gone straight into therapy at the DNS (Nat. Dyslexic Assoc.).

Photos of Guardvan's run were spotted on Hashspace:... Unfortunately the slideshow function of Hashspace seems to be having difficulties... You will have to visit Hashspace (those of you that have signed up there) and see them <there>.

Taste the Harvest Dinner this friday night!

Next Sunday is  Taste The Harvest at the Mersey Foreshore! More importantly, the Taste the Harvest Celebration Dinner is on next Friday night at Reece High School!! The dinner is a food and wine extravaganza with an agricultural and local produce theme, but again more importantly, the entertainment and drinks are all included in the price.

Catering for a wide variety of tastes, past offerings have included potato and vegetable dishes, venison, seafood, beef and lamb. Fresh berries and desserts are a popular repast and wonderful Tasmanian wine, beer, cheeses and quality coffee can accompany all the gourmet foods.

This year it is held at Reece High School, and 170 tickets have already been sold. No walk-ins allowed, you need to buy a ticket!  Tickets have been reserved for the HAsh House Harrier and are still available from the LJ Hooker office in Devonport (Opposite Coles), just ask to be seated at the Hash House Harrier table! Alternatively contact GoneAgain to secure your seat.

The inside scoop: There are 480 bottles of wine and 20 cartons of beer. And the $100 tickets do not represent the cost of the event, you actually get much more value then $100 as you will know if you were at last year's dinner. The reason for the excellent value is that much of the food is provided by Tasmanian producers and the event is costed so as to cover cost, not make profits! BUY TICKETS ASAP to avoid disappointment!

Here is the menu (note the suggested wines are also included in the $100):

Course One:
Parmesan wafer Salad
Fresh apples from Spreyton, rocket and Ashgrove wild wasabi cheese, drizzled with fig balsamic glaze and black truffle olive oil, topped with a parmesan wonton wafer crisp.
Suggested accompaniment beverage – Ghost Rock Sauvignon Blanc
Petuna Seafood’s Salmon selection plate
Smoked salmon layered on potato & zucchini herb frittatas with dill sour cream. Hot Smoked Salomon roulades filled with Philadelphia cheese, capers, capsicum and fennel, drizzled with local strawberry vinaigrette dressing.
Suggested accompaniment beverage – Barring wood Park Pinot Gris
Roma Chicken Grill
Nicholas poultry chicken breast baked on a fresh garden vegetable stack of eggplant, butternut pumpkin, capsicum, local brocolini and Roma tomatoes, sprinkled with mozzarella cheese and served with fresh summer salsa.
Suggested accompaniment beverage – Hillwood Vineyard Pinot Noir
Food Design’s Spicy Beef Fillet
Tasmanian Eye Fillet Beef Medallions Char-Grilled (medium), sliced and layered upon Steamed snow peas, peppers and Jasmine rice, accompanied with a spicy coriander (cilantro) relish and garnished with chiffonnade carrot and beetroot.

Suggested accompaniment beverage – Velo Wines Cabaret Sauvignon
Molten Chocolate Pudding Cakes
Anvers chocolate molten lava cakes, served warm with a warm mocha espresso shot and garnished with fresh Christmas hills raspberries and King Island double cream.
Suggested accompaniment beverage – Tamar Ridge Botrytis Riesling


500 Runs for Lantern

Vanguard's Run at Kelcey Tier (up down, around and over...) was highlighted by Lantern receiving a special pressy to recognise his 500th run. The present, thoughtfully wrapped up by Crow, took Lantern a frantic 20 minutes to open. Luckilly the well wrapped authentic oil-lantern was not filled with fuel as sparks were flying as Lantern used his claws and teeth to rip through the packing. There was no genie to clean up his mess.
