Dint's First

Fearing the worst we the crowd gathered at Dint and Koffs house from where we started. It was clear from the first circle check that Dint had lots of flour and flour to spare. So that is where Cheeze's flour had gone to! The trail looped around Church street, along the river and into the burbs, then skirting along the seafront in the dark. There we eventually found the Rambo/Whimps sign. As Dint had told us before the run he had not wasted much flour on the Walkers trail, and sure enough we found it about 50 meters, if that, from the R/W.

The first surprise was at Koffs home where Runners and Walkers arrived simultaneously to find cheese and bickies. The outdoors heating was ample thanks to Cheeze not wasting any time and putting all wood he could find in the fire pot, creating a nice simmering biomass.

We were expecting soup for dinner, but pizza came out, and then the pasta and macaroni and the Waldorf Salad, garlic bread and Parmesan cheese. That was the first surprise of the evening.... Next surprise was the unthinkable. Usually we all try desperately to stop Dint from burning plastic cups, but this time Mattress full of intent decided to burn her plastic cup after doing her down down. She must be in charge of cremations at the hospital.

Anyways, next run at Lantern's place; 168 (?) Stoney Rise Road, Devonport.

ALSO, THURSDAY NIGHT (28 AUG) BLUES NIGHT at OZROCKINN. Rory Ellis  $35 starting at 7pm playing.

SATURDAY/SUNDAY 30 AUGUST WE ARE INVITED TO COME TO CROW'S SKI LODGE AT BEN LOMOND. SHOW UP AT BEN LOMOND CARPARK Saturday sometime around MIDDAY, or any time really and find Crow and 1080 there... Lodge is called Troobunna, right next to carpark, if you find anyone they will know.  There will be a mini adventure up Hamilton Crags which requires sturdy shoes and probably gloves. One hour walk, followed by a pub crawl in the village... Bring pillow, sleepingbag, booze and if you want bring something along to share with the cookup that might happen if we are motivated. Pub next door.

Cheeze's Home Invasion

Cheeze deserved a new prefix after setting his run. Cheeze van Moore set a trail with about 3 metric tablespoons of flour. He managed to save a whole lot by just setting trail along the Ulverstone beach knowing full well it was going to be high tide (ie. no need to waste flour on the beach).  And how did he know? He checked the tide before he set the run and it looked OK (for his flour).

Anyways, it was a good turn out and we were all out there having a jolly good time running around in the dark. Strategically placed protected penguins were put along the trail for amusement. Maggie tried to feed one a finger apparently.

Back at the ranch the walkers who bee-lined home once they hit the beach had ample time to get comfortable in van Cheeze's abode. Amazingly everyone respectfully took off their footwear - exposing some non compliant pairs of socks which went unnoticed. We all missed the cold sheds in the backyard, NOT!

We all left with a full belly, and are to reconvene next week at;

Dint and Koff's place at Church Street in East Devonport at 630pm next monday (25/8/14).

Watch this space for an update on the Mount Lomond overnighter next friday - 29-30 August?

Run 1731

Last Monday's Antarctic-themed (or at least it seemed that way)
combined run with Lunar Hash rated on a score out of 10, about the
same as the temperature (about 4).

To say it was fucking freezing would be an understatement.
Only the truly brave and fearless Hashers tackled the trail (of which
there was none).

After Tracker informed the assembled DH3 Hashers and Loonies (of which
there were none, apart from Devonport Hashers), he had been too
busy/lazy to set a trail, we set off into the darkness for a short run
and an even shorter walk before adjourning to Mackay's for a much
anticipated pub meal.

Despite our best efforts and attempts to bribe the waitress, Bastard
wasn't served last, although it looked as though he would be for a

She did manage to drop four plates and their contents on the floor,
but unfortunately. Bastard's meal was not one of them.
Squandering his new-found retirement funds, Poxie lashed out on an
entree and not satisfied with the main meal, Dint (with Koff's help),
Cheeze and Crow also demolished a dessert or three.

Next week's run will be at Cheeze's place – details below.
Bring a torch, $15 and any scraps left over from last week for the dogs.

On, On – Dint
When: Monday 17th August @ 18:30 for 18:45 get away
Where: Amherst St, West Ulverstone
Bring: Torch + $15 for on-on
Hare: Cheeze
On On: Cheeze

Run 1730 in Conjunction with Lunar Hash

When:                  Monday 11th  August @ 1830 for 1845 get away

Where:                 Car Park behind Wells Car Park, Latrobe

Bring:                   Torch + money to BYO at local pub for on-on

Hare:                   Trakka

On On:                Local Pub



Run 1729:

The trail did an early loop  and then through the dead centre of Don to a Master Check on Lapthorne Close. Shortly after the walkers diverged onto their “special” trail to find their HHH. The runners headed trackside to Tatiana, Georgiana and Checkiana on their way down Steele Street. Maggie got confused by all the checks but Lantern saved the day when he sighted reflective flour near a roundabout. Dint thought he would go for a “splash”, but he couldn’t find any trail.

A  convivial on-on was enjoyed in Lantern’s warm shed with the added comfort of a Mattress. Proxy Assistant Deputy Lip Trakka conducted the “downs”. Maggie was hesitant to let go of the hub, so was awarded the trophy for another week. Well done Maggie.

Thanks Lantern.

Run 1729

When:                  Monday 4th August @ 1830 for 1845 get away

Where:                 Lantern’s Shed, Stony Rise Road, Devonport (near intersection Lawrence Drive)

Bring:                  $15 plus torch

Hare:                   Guardsvan

On On:                Guardsvan at Lantern’s Shed


Trakka is setting the following weeks run from TBA, but we need Hares to host following weeks’ runs. As I will be away from next week please liaise with Assistant Trailmaster Dint if you are able to assist.


Run 1728 was preceded by rain, wind, hail, thunder, lightning, but Crow interceded and arranged for the wild weather to abate during the run. A couple of dozen hashers walked, wunned, waded or waited. The trail was awash with flour trail well set by crow and easy to follow. Luckily a deluge decided Crow to end the outing with an HHH at Pier One. Soff was a late scratching due to the “weather”. (“Whether” he had a house when he got home!)

Celebrations ensued to for Koff’s 500th and Bastard’s 1000th run. Crow and 1080 did a great spread of tuckka and Koff received her presentation of a pewter mug and Bastard of a well wrapped and well hung bastard file on Huon Pine. The trophy maker did a fantastic job. Assistant Lip Bedpan conducted her usual lively lippery although some of the “downs” were grossly unfair!! Also it was good to welcome back Smog and Noddi for the occasion.

Thanks Crow and 1080. From what I remember it was a great time had by all.
