And so 15 or so Hashers met at Lanterns cave wondering in which direction he might send them. And send them he did - on through the old dead centre of Devonport, found some not so virgin bush behind the Council workshops, past the Hillcrest Primary school 3 times, and wound up back at Lanterns. Some walking wankers actually walked the runners trail - double wankers!!
As we know Lantern likes a fire! In fact he had 3 fires going when we all got back, one in the house, one in the man cave, and one in the fire pit outside.
In due course, Lanterns feast was served up. Large pieces of chicken, sausages and beefburgers along with salad on some other green stuff. And in keeping with tradition, he served up icecream cake and pavlova. Crow was very watchful all night.
Bastard did the Lip and awarded downs to -
. Lantern for a top run,
. Pioneer for 410 runs,
. Bald Eagle for having his own lip,
. TT for 395 runs,
. Maggie May for 409 runs, practice,
. Bastard for calling On On when the Trailmaster was present,
. Ringer for losing weight -reason given having to perform every night of the week with sex partner SupaSal.
Hashers like Soff, Cheeze, Crow kept in the background and missed out .GA went home early. And at the end of the night, it was the Central Coast Cruisers last to leave again.
The biggest loser from the weekend was awarded to Tracka - something about a black and white bird.
The Hub resurfaced and was worn with great pride by Tracka - and was awarded for the next week to Ringer for being such a performer!
Next weeks run will be at the carpark behind the weighbridge at Sulphur Creek/Heybridge with the On On back at Bastards in Adina Court, Penguin.
The run after that will be Tracka's run at the Coles Beach picnic are carpark - we know it well.
And the run after that will be set by Dint TBA.
The Drunken Walkers will stumble from the Lighthouse Hotel about 7.30pm AET.
If you want a freeby double ticket for Mr Holmes tonight 645pm. Message Dint ASAP, he has ONE spare double pass! First in best dressed...
The monk was absent last monday and we got washed out! The packs left Valentinos for FannyMays home where a quick circle was held with a lubricating dose of gluwein. On return to Valentinos the pack got soaked.
Fortunately Valentinos still allowed us in and FannyMay's dry towels got us all relatively comfortable for Pizza and Beer.
Next run at Boner's home: 2 of 2 Wrights Rd. in Ulverstone!
And so, 15 Hashers made their way to Eagle's garage for another adventure in East Devonport. As Crow was late again, this time his excuse was bringing 540 as 1080 was otherwise engaged, the CCC team took some time to catch up. In fact Soff did not catch up at all.
It seems the trail went over the bridge and came right back again. Eagle did say it was short and sharp.
Back in the garage, inadequately warmed by a pissy little fan heater, Eagle served up soup, rissoles and rolls, and chockolate moose and strawberries. There was none left.
Dint performed the Lip and downs were awarded to -
. Eagle for a short run on a cold night,
. Soff for 800 runs,
. TT for 393 reversible,
. Ringer for 11 reversible,
. Cheeze for 534 for dislectic week,
. Supasal for 132 as above,
. Dint for calling 540 520,
. and a couple of others not worthy of mention.
GA brought along another friend (one wonders where he finds them). When asked if he had a knickname, he said he had one and it was Dodgy, so that became his hash name.
As far as the Hub goes, GA was so interested in bringing his friend along that he forgot to bring the Hub along as well. It was no contest that GA was awarded the Hub for another week.
During a lull in proceedings (Dint was eating) Eagle was heard to say "Every old person has a young person in them, saying what the f*ck happened". And he also said the he took his MG Sprite for a run on Saturday with the hood down - jeez, what is he trying to prove!
Another piece of lost property surfaced - this time it had Bonor's name on it.
Biggest losers this week were Cheeze and Bonor - Maggie was relieved.
Raffles were won and won and everyone won won.
Drunken walkers will walk from the Forth Pub at half past on Thursday if they can!
Next weeks run will be from Valentino's in Best St, Devonport, opposite Gowans Toyota. Bring some extra cash for drinks.
And the run after that will be from Bonor's place somewhere in Ulverstone. Ah an update- its at 2/2 Wrights Road, off Trevor St, somewhere near the Simplot exit off the bypass. We have been there before. You all remember that?
I shall wave to you all as I pass by on the Spirit of Tasmania next Monday with my motor bike and a few others doing traffic control for the cycling Tour of the South Coast - Mt Gambier to Port Fairy over a week or so.
Sometimes you wonder ...and another glass of wine tells you the answer. Life goes on!!!
