The Downhill Slide

Posted by Picasa

Cheese is getting on in years and it won't be long until he's over the hill.
To get us all in the right frame of mind, he organised for his birthday for the Hash to have an hour on the waterslide, to ensure we ALL feel our age the next day.
Afterwards, his Mum made great pizzas and Pistol Pete cooked them in his own little personal backyard crematorium.
Guardy entertained us with his very slippery lippery, and the raffle was as rigged as ever. Lady Luck never got a look in.
Next week's R*n on Feb 7th is being set by Eagle, or maybe Mabel, from Tea Tree Lane off Pardoe Road, East Devonport, with the On On back at Eagle's place, 25 Torquay Road, East Devonport.
On! On! Dini

OZ Day at Fanny May

GoneAgain set a run from FannyMay's place to celebrate Australia Day! Some of us were draped in gold and green, but only one could win the prize for best costume. According to Tracka, and the decision was unanimous, Killer won the best costume prize for dressing as Albert Namatjira.

Fresh Fanny and Filthy were visitors from Townsville, the first of the grey nomad brigade to hit our shores for Nash Hash, and they were suitably impressed by our drinking prowess.

FanyyMay outdid herself by cooking up a storm which started with a mid-run serving of vegemite sandwiches and good old beer, all hand delivered and served at the war memorial by MonaLuna. The slower runners missed out as the walkers with a ferocious appetite ate them all. Back at the OnOn in James street the runners were awarded with an early serving of party pies and saveloys served so hot that they had to wait with eating till the walkers made it back. Roast lamb in rolls with gravy and mint jelly... and fairy bread and Anzacs for desert completed the tucker and a healthy serving of port was on hand to flush it all down. Fireworks and burned marshmallows on sticks completed the evening.

Next run from the Ulverstone Waterslide! Women are instructed to wear white bikini tops or none at all, and blokes can come as they wish.

Fanny May?

I know that everyone knows where Fanny May lives, and many of you might still have a key to her house. But those that don't: today's run is at 10 James Street in Devonport....

Green and Gold

Yes Hashers, Australia Day is on the horizon! That means that Dint is absolutely correct in forecasting a Green and Gold look for next monday's Hash at Fanny May's. Since the Full Moon Hash at Furner's on Thursday night will be closer to the actual Australia Day we will have to all order Meatpies and Beer there and drape ourselves in Green and Gold.

Australia Day Poem

Australians are a funny lot, you'll often hear one curse,
How things have started badly, and they'll probably get worse,
The weathers dry, the sun's so hot it's stolen all the water,
The Government has never done the things we think they oughta'.

But if we hear a tourist say his home is much more grand,
They had better be prepared to make a very solid stand.
For although we Aussies may complain at what's become our lot,
When someone knocks this country, we defend with all we've got.

We may criticize some teenage brat, may even wish them failure,
But we stand behind them cheering when they're playing for Australia.
Because, if this is home to you, the country of your birth,
Then you back the native player to beat anyone on Earth.

When the cricket bats are swinging or when someone scores a try,
When a home grown horse has won the cup and made the owner cry,
When some Paralympics athlete hits the front and sets the pace,
You'll hear "Aussie Aussie Aussie" as the crowd goes off their face.

And although we like to take a break in overseas locations,
If you take the time to question this nomadic population,
They will tell you without blinking that wherever they may roam,
The best part of the journey was the last bit, ....coming home.

For the sun was never brighter on the beach at Waikiki,
Than it is on all the sandy shores Australia has to see,
The water never purer nor the air as fresh and clear,
The people never friendlier than those that we have here.

If you venture to the outback where grass is scarce as snow,
As you swelter you may wonder what it was that made you go,
But just look at the locals who have lived there since their birth,
And I know you will not find a better class of folk on earth.

All across this wide brown country from the Cape to Hobart town,
There are people who will help you when you find the chips are down,
And if someone should abuse you, and does it just because,
Then that person's not Australian, and that person never was.

So when you feel disgruntled just remember this rendition,
And never blame the country for the acts of politicians,
Look up and count your blessings when you see our flag unfurled,
And be grateful that you live in the best country in the world.

No Nickers Run

Nickers and Ratchet did their annual Port Sorell Motorbike run from their campsite. But for reasons defying explanation there was no Nickers and the run was set from the local BBQ place. Nickers did leave her mark in the form of some good salads. Ratchet set the run and the bikers all arrived by a polite 7pm to give him time to get ready. Dyke, being the SNAG, cooked the snags on the BBQ. Crow ran the circle, Zippo was named Zippo, and GoneAgain got a down down for getting mail (nothing less than the Certificate of Deprivation for us Adopting-a-Highway). Cheese’s bike ran out of juice on the way home and GoneAgain’s didn’t -because he coerced Dint into giving him his last $10 to buy fuel before setting off.

  • Next run is GoneAgain's and he's setting it from FannyMay's place (10 James St, Devonport) because he wants to see her sweating in the kitchen. Bring something to sit on if you can.
  • Don't forget this Thursday (Jan.20) at Furner’s Hotel in Ulverstone for the NW Lunar Hash (www.lunarhash.blogspot.com).

Two Moons are twice the fun

Even though we are all Looning off to Oatlands to be Masterbakers on Jan 22nd, the Full Moon we love to crave is actually two days earlier.
Devoted Loonies may gather at a public house (Furners) in Ulverstone at 7pm on Thursday January 20th to join with Hare Lip Flasher for stroll, sips and sustenance before baring their buns under the silvery glow of the January moon.
According to written club lore (the ink is still drying), attendance at this moonwa*k or at Oatlands will count as a LoonRhasH r*n

Flasher's Night Off

Posted by Picasa
A skimpy pack set out from les Bean's place in McCabe Avenue, armed with umbrellas and ready for the weather to crap on them in a big way. Lots of hilly streets and some sneaky alleyways and stairs took the hashers down onto the railway line reserve at Coles Beach. A mastercheck at Don College sent the sheep home while the goats ran out to the Don Railway and back. Flasher had coerced Les into doing all the cooking and was sitting around drinking piss when we arrived back. But it must be said that his Haring skills were up to scratch - the walkers and runners arrived back within seconds of each other. That could also be something to do with the fact the the rain keeps away the SCB's who hash home early.
The wrigged wraffle abounded with post-Christmas specials and more relics from Auntie's special collection of c1968 knitted treasures. Poxy arrived just as it was ending and was terribly disappointed to have missed out, as he was relying on it to pick up something nice to give PB next Christmas. Eagle scored a very classy tie which will earn him his own office at work, but Highbeam came away less than satisfied after finding out what she'd won wasn't porn.
There was a gap where the lip should have been, so Tracka filled it with spackle and awarded all the downs he couldn't think of. Bald Eagle made a cracking beer bitch.
At the end of it, Cheese was astonished to find himself holding the Hub, even though both hands were in his pockets.
Next week is the motor bike run set by Ratchet and Knickers from Port Sorell Caravan Park. Riders meet at Oz Rock Inn Ulverstone at 6pm.

Grizzlies Girzzles

Hi-ho, hi-ho, a HOFTing we will go!

Chief dwarf Happy (last time I saw Dyke he was wearing a shirt proclaiming that he was gay - same thing) will be leading the Burnie Hash dwarves, Dopey, Dopey, Dopey, Dopey and Dopey ('cos you'd have to be dopey to follow Dyke anywhere!) on a day walk starting at Alma Bridge.

Meet at the Forth Pub, (Sunday 9th January 2011) at 10 am - bring lunch and drinks, and money for Pub meal after. Happy rates this outing as “easy-peasy”, around 13km in length and significantly flatter than Mount Roland.

UP AND CUMMING. († updated)

A Canadian park ranger is giving some ramblers a warning about bears, ‘Brown bears are usually harmless. They avoid contact with humans so we suggest you attach small bells to your rucksacks and give the bears time to get out of your way. However, grizzly bears are extremely dangerous. If you see any grizzly-bear droppings leave the area immediately.’ ‘So how do we know if they’re grizzly bear droppings?’ asks one of the ramblers. ‘It’s easy,’ replies the ranger. ‘They’re full of small bells.’
