Drunken Walkers, Coles etc.

Run 1775: And so 18 or so Hashers met at the Ozz Rock Inn not knowing what was waiting for them - knowing Crow. And Crow did not let them down. It turned out to be a paper run - that is, go to specific points and count things, or what is the telephone number of so and so, or what is the price of some products in Coles and so on - about 20 of them.

Teams were drawn by 1080, ably assisted by 540 (get it?) About an hour later all the teams had returned and 1080 was set to check the sheets. In the meantime, Crow was serving up Pea and Ham soup, followed by pork and coleslaw and rolls, and icecream and apple crumble. Some were disappointed that there were no fish and chips. Very nice.

It was Bastards turn to do the lip and some notable downs were - .
1400 - Bald Eagle, .
1040 - Bastard, .
997 - Dint (more practice), .
250 - Gone Again (who has just come back), .
400 - Maggie May, .
002 - 540 for consecutive runs, 
FC and Dint downed for birthdays, Dint for being the biggest loser, Bald Eagle for being the biggest winner and Dint for various other self interest reasons.

Results of the teams event were - 1st - Cheeze and Dint, 2nd equal, FC and GA, Maggie and Eagle, and Thrust and Eweturn, 5th - Bastard and Tracka and Soff, 6th - GV and Poxie, 7th - Pioneer and Overdose. The raffle was won and won and Cheeze won a prize - no it was not a blow up doll. The Hub was awarded to Overdose, on a countback from Dint, for refusing to go into Coles, indicating this by a very loud "stuff it - I am not going into there".

An interesting evening - more so for the staff at Coles. Great food, great run, great fellowship and everyone left through the "exit to the real world" door.

Drunken Walkers!
Tracka advised that a new group of like minded hashers called "Drunken Walkers" meet each thursday at 7.30pm, this week at the Lighthouse in Ulverstone (whgoops, past tense now....).

Next Run:
Next weeks run will be from the rear carpark of the Spreyton Primary School, near the netball courts that we very nearly went to a couple of weeks ago.

On On Soff

Personal Success Intensive - Cheese pulled it off

Next run:

Where: From Oz Rock Inn, Beach Road, Ulverstone 
What: The Great Race 
When: Monday 22nd June. 6.30 for 6.45 start 
Hare: Crow 

Run Report 1774: Cheese transformed the terrain of Ulver-rock with ample dots of powdered dough. A pack of too many for me to count assembled in Amherst St for the “on-on” call. The runners powered all the way to Boner’s abode via a devious trail, while the walkers took a shorter root through the parklands. By miraculous calculation Cheese managed to get the walkers and runners back at the same time. Welcome back to some hashers who had not been for a while. We missed you. Also welcome to 540 for his first official run. (and run he did!!) Master Chef Cheese prepared a gourmet meal for the masses, topped off with Vanilla Slice and Port and Green Ginger Wine. You’re a machine Cheese! Thanks. GV in Soff’s absence.

RUN 1773

Monday, 8th June, 2015

RUN:  1773

And so it came to pass that 8 or 9 hashers met at the Mersey Yacht Club.  I don't know why because it was wet, it was cold, and it was windy.   Perhaps it was the thought of enjoying some of the eats that Koff was going to provide.

Anyway, the runners decided to run to I don't know where. Word has it that GV fell flat on his face and Eagle was blown backwards. The wankers did the sensible thing by walking to Koff's place - well some started walking but soon retreated to go back and get their cars. Another sensible thought was for the wankers to call into the Edgewater Hotel for a warming drink but alas, they had just closed up. Utterley disappointed, the wankers moved on to Koff's house expecting some refreshments, but there was none until Cheeze in Crows mobile arrived.

While waiting for Cheeze, Flasher regaled all with a description of the names on the Hub - yes it was there and so was Bonor. Most hash names enscribed on the hub were remembered, as were their real names, but some were not.

Koff was getting excited by this time and brought out the pumpken soup and savoury toast without waiting for the runners - and a nice soup it was.  It was left to Dint to order and pick up Pizza's from Dominoes - they were either not very nice or there was too much - doesn't matter  - Dint's lunch on Tuesday. These were followed by lamingtons with jam and real cream.

For a change the raffle was won and won 
before the Lip -  just about everyone won a prize.

Bastard did the Lip and downs were awarded to -

Dint for setting trail, which could be followed, in extreme conditions,
. Koff for another excellent spread,
. Dint for 995 runs,
. GV for 1305 runs,
. GV for sending a txt message to Koff's landline.

The newly returned Hub was awarded to GV for reasons above, and again there was no port.

Next weeks run will be set by Cheeze from 33 Amhurst St, Ulverstone.

The following weeks run (June 22) will be set by Crow? from the Oz Rock Inn, 10 Beach Road, that's in Ulverstone as well.

The run after that (June 29) will be set by Tracka TBA.

But there is more! The run after that run will be at Tug's house of ill repute, also known as The Red Grasshopper, on 6 July.

While having a look at the front page of The Advocate this morning (tuesday after the monday run), lo and behold one could see Bonor (even from the rear you could recognize him) in his multi coloured shorts after participating in a "freezemnd" swim at the Ulverstone Surf Club beach,  And looking at another photo on Page 4, I think he was checking to see if his manlyness was still there. Done good!!

On On and I will be in Sydeny at part time hasher Herb's second wedding (stupid person) next week.


RUN 1772

1st June, 2015

RUN:  1772

And so it came to pass that just 6 hashers (and Bald Eagle who set the trail but had to leave) gathered in the barren grounds of Molly Malone's carpark for a run that had a changed destination as a result of Tracka's father Darbe leaving this world.

And so it was 3 runners (cheeze, Dint and GV) and 3 wankers (Crow, Eweturn and Soff) finding trail.  The runners tell me the trail went towards the River, up to the Bluff, back around some streets and to their Best ability, came down that street and found themselves back in the carpark.  Meanwhile the 3 wankers wandered down to the riverbank and just about right then, Crow found that the cold air did not agree with him and all 3 wandered back to Molly's for some comforting refreshments and  warmth on the reserved table in the name of Malcom, which included capitals and non capital letters which I cannot reproduce.

There was no lipppery because it was too cold outside and there was no raffle. 

After some time, the runners arrived and all enjoyed a roast and some had sweets - of course Dint was the first to suggest that.

We won't go on about who was not there and who wimped out but you all go on notice. The Cradle Coast Cruisers made up the numbers, with the exception of Dint - I guess we will have to accept that.

Next weeks run will be set by Dint from the MYC with the On On back at Dint's and Koff's house nearly by the river in Church St, East Devonport - just look for the cars outside - I think it's No 14 but it could be 12.

The run after that will be set by Cheeze from his house on the hill in West Ulverstone, overlooking the CBD of West Ulverstone in Amhurst St - just look for the Hawthorn paraphenalia, or the two story house, or the cars outside.

And a reminder of the LoonaR hash is on Wednesday 3 June, meeting at Otto's Grotto, Ulverstone, and afterwards at the Jade Willow in Reibey St (did you know that a  picture of Mary Reibey is on one side of the Australian $20 note).

The meal was good, Crow found a long lost former employee to chat to, and there was too many cooks in the kitchen for a Monday night but it did make nice viewing at how they made themselves look busy.

Update for Run 1772

Monday Night's Run (Plan B)

31st May, 2015

Hello fellow hashers,

There has been a change of plan.

Tracka’s dad died during the week and he will not be setting the run. Our condolences go to Tracka, Tinsel and their family.

Eagle is now setting the run from Mollie Malones Car Park.

The lippery (never sure how you spell that) will probably beheld in the car park at the end of the run, time, weather and Cheese permitting.
The On-On will be at Mollie’s with a set menu ~ probably Roast of the day.

The cost will be $10 and buy your own drinks (plus any extras that you choose). The balance will be subsidised by Hash (I hope).

Expect your usual text this ‘arvo.


GV on behalf of Soff

Run 1771

MONDAY 25th May, 2015

RUN: 1771

And so approximately 16 or so Hashers, give or take a couple, gathered just across from the beach at Turners Beach at Soff and Landings house with a black tile roof, and out the front a Sydney Swans flag flying high. So high in fact that Cheeze could not see it - otherwise he may have been disrespectfull to it. We all wondered whether Cyril was still his favourite player!

At the appointed time less 2 minutes, the eager pack called On On to themselves and headed in every direction except South, because that is where they came from. The trail followed some roadway, then some beach taking a look the new riverbank stabilisation at the mouth of the Forth River, and to a mastercheck on the boat ramp. I was hoping the local ducks would be there for a feed, but they did not appear.

The trail headed South- because that's the way it went,  through Gables Park and back North again to pick up previously set trail from a couple of weeks ago. After deciding that the fresh trail was the way to go, it ventured along Susan St to a master check outside Gazzunders house, who apparently refused to come out.

Then onwards past Maggies side entrance to his still in progress sub-division and found a master check and HHH for the Wankers.  The runners found some more trail towards Ulverstone until a HHH was located at the end of Lethborg Ave nearly on the beach.  And surprise surprise, all got back to the house across from the beach at the same time and Cheeze had some help carrying in the Hash Hops.

After a suitable time the Lippery got going with Bastard doing the honours.
Downs were awarded to -

. Soff for a fine run considering it was the 3rd run in Turners Beach in a short time,
. GV for 1303 runs,
. Pioneer for 404 runs,
. Dint for 993 runs (he is being given some practice for a forthcoming high number
. Koff for 522 runs,
. Maggie for being the biggest loser,
. Crab for being the second biggest loser,
. Eweturn for not cleaning up trail from 2 weeks ago,
. Cheeze for not putting on Facebook that the Hawks lost to the Swans.

Landing put on a great spead with soup (there was none left from a big pot), a range of meats and a special potato bake, and a rasbery jam tart with icecream.  Pretty good really.

The Hub is still missing so that means that Bonor must be still missing. Perhaps he could post it back?

GA and Fanny May are still away somewhere apparently.  But Crow was everywhere proudly showing off the expert needlework on his chest, as a result of his recent operation and he is getting his hairy chest back as well.  He is coming good but it is taking time - and we know Crow does not like having to sit around.  But he did sit around the fireboxes in the back yard keeping warm.

The raffles were won and won and nearly everyone won a prize.

The next LunaR Hash is coming up on Wed 3 June, meeting at Otto's Grotto, near the Yacht Club in Ulverstone, and afterwards at the Jade Willow - that's a Chinese eating house next to the Post Office in Ulverstone as well.

But before that, next weeks run will meet at the carpark  behind the Netball courts at Spreyton, and On On-ing at TT's house on the hill in Tarleton. We need more hashers to host runs after that - what can you do?
