Run 1797 - Captain Crab's Odyssey from Otto's Grotto

And so 18 or so hashers turned up at Otto's Grotto (it's in Ulverstone) to participate in a run set by Capt Crab. Before the On On, it was noticed that an electric bicycle was hidden away up the back. So for the initiated, it meant that trail could be hard to find.

And so it was!  Hashers found trail,  lost trail, went this way and that, found more trail, lost trail again but most arrived back at the grotto around the same time, that is, except the runners who thought they were on trail, but it was observed they were following seabird droppings. And when the runners did arrive back at the Grotto - they came in from all directions.  Capt Crab was heard blaming the wind.

As Capt Crabb's feast was about to be served by Mrs Crabb, hashers tucked into more shredded chicken, coleslaw, potato salad, pasta,and rolls and bread.  They then demolished a 4 litre container of vanilla icecream.

While all this was happening,some dickhead of a hasher put some plastic container over the small candles on the food table. Cheeze cried out "who's burning plastic" and Dint said "Not me".  By this time some paper hand towels had burst into flame.  Instant action by Tracka and Cheeze removed the burning bits, but not after burning a hole in Mrs Crab's new plastic table cloth.   Crow was blamed for causing the fire because of a previous history of such things.

Dint did the Lip because he wanted to and awarded downs to -

. Capt Crab - for a crap run,

. Bastard - 1060 runs,

. Tracka - 1270 runs,

. Cheeze - 550 runs,

. Poxie - 575 runs,

. TT - 404 runs,

. OD - 27 runs (something about being a nurse),

. Dint - something he said on the radio,

. Cheeze - reversed back to him for talking about Capt Crab,

. Bastard - reversed back to him for trying to say that TT had assaulted him,

. Poxie - for wearing odd shoes to a recent wedding.

The raffles were won and won and not everyone one one -

. Poxie won the wine,

. Soff won the cider,

. Maggie won the Chilli beer.

It was noted that while Capt Crab sat around drinking port with other hashers, Mrs Crab cleaned up. At least there was some port!

LunaH Hash will be celebrated on Thursday evening 26 November 2016, meeting at the Rocket in Anzac Park at the normal time, with refreshments  at RA.

Next week’s run is the AGM!!   Meet at Don Railway Carpark at 6.30 for 6.45 departure.
Wankers will be transported to the start of their trail which will finish back at Don Railway.
Runners will follow trail from the Don Railway and will be picked up somewhere and returned to the start.
Latecomers should follow runners’ trail until they meet-up with the wankers and then return.

On-On will be at The Don Chapel thanks to Killa -  Walk there from the Don Railway (Dell Luck) Car Park.

GV understands the protocol is that Current Grand Master Tracka will be nominate (read appoint) his successor who will then appoint the Joint Masters who will then (s)elect their committee. I am sure Tracka has this in hand, so to speak!

Run 1796 - Syncro's run from Bells Parade around Pig Island

And so about 17 hashers  (purely a guess), met at Bells Parade for Syncro's first attempt at setting a run. We were all a little worried that the trail might lead up those big hills nearby. But Syncro knew better than that and set trail around the perimeter of Pig Island, with a couple of false trails thrown in. There were a few comments that they did not realize the island was that big. The runners went a bit further but as it happened, all arrived back at the same time. I could have said something else there!

Back at the BBQ shelter Syncro and Tea Bag were busily cooking up a storm for the hungry hordes.

But as the run was a little short, Bastard did the lip before the hungry hordes got fed.

Downs were awarded to -

. Syncro - a half reasonable attempt at setting his first run,

. Tea Bag - for her able assistance,

. G.V. - 1320 runs,

. Killa - 265 runs,

. Tow Truck - missing more than 50 runs,

. Dint - 1018 runs (Bastard needed to use up some more downs)

. Cheeze - for making a comment which I cant print - reversed back to Boner,

. Cheeze - for something else that cannot be printed,

. Soff - 811 runs (Bastard used up the second last down)

. Lantern - just happened to be in the same pub as Cheeze  (and he was not driving).

And then the hungry hordes were let loose to consume shrapneled chicken, plastic burgers, snags, salads, bread and rolls. And it seems there was enough left over for Syncro to have snacks for the rest of the week - even though Crab and Dint were both there. Noddi being  first in the queue is now a distant memory.

Raffles were won and won and some won won. -

. Supa Sal won the wine,

. Soff won the cider,

. Syncro won the beer.

Crow was very quiet all night - he tells us he had 3 big functions to look after and he was feeling the pinch.

Supa Sal was going on about Ringer being in Thailand (or some other land) and were missing each other terribly. So much so that they were going to resort to phone sex later in the evening.

And then the Latrobe Council person came by and said that he was about the lock the gate and if the person who owned the only vehicle left in the carpark did not take the vehicle out, it would be locked in until the next morning. Some discussion ensued and Bedpan eventually realized that he was talking about her vehicle. Synco did the right thing and moved it out onto the roadway where everyone else had parked.

Boner took some photo's and will put them up for all to see.

Next weeks run will be set by Captain Crab from Otto's Grotto in Ulverstone, just near the Yacht Club. He has promised an interesting run and proper eats, whatever that means?

The run after that will be the AGM.  Meet at Dell Luck Park carpark  (also the carpark for the Don River Railway) for a car pool to the quarry up in Kelcey Tiers, with the On On back at Killa's church in Don, walking distance from the carpark.  I wonder whether the run will just be around the Tiers, or sort of finish up back at the Don?  G.V. is setting and only he knows and there is no 1st prize for guessing.

Next Run - Syncro"s explore the wilds of Latrobe on 16 Nov

Having now recovered from his camping tour with Bedpan, Syncro has now devoted some time to where and what he will do for his run.

Not wishing to intrude on Bedpan's space, the run will be at Bells Parade, Latrobe, at the normal time.

However, and that is a big HOWEVER, Syncro needs some assistance in setting the run, not having done one before, and Bedpan will be working until 5 ish.

Is there a Hasher out there willing to show a fellow hasher how to set a run?

The deal is to come back to me if you are offering, and you will need a dribble dropper, Syncro will have the flour, and set the trail any time Monday.

Run 1795 - Crow's Special Beach and Bush

And so 20  or so  (there was so many I only had 20 fingers)  hashers and it must have been the enticement of some special food that brought them there, headed off this way and that way, so much the wrong way that Crow had to point a finger to those hanging around to the right way.

On to the beach, back off the beach, back onto the beach, along the rocks heading towards K'noths place (he used to be a hasher) at the end of Beach Road, past a nice little beach inlet, a Master Check was near there and Eweturn got lost, did not want to get her feet wet although the tide was out.

Bastard did the right thing and went looking for her and found her another 200 mts away in the wrong direction. After the Master Check, hashers went past and through the former Sea Kist cottages - or what is left of them. The property has been advertised for sale last week. See what the future holds there. And all arrived safely at Crows except Dint who somehow really got lost. And no one went looking for him.

Back at the OzRock Inn, when the thirsty hordes had quenched their thirst, Dint did the lip because Bastard did it last week. Downs were earned by -

. Crow - for a top run (for some) and food - the plastic hamburgers were a bit tough,

. FC - 848 runs - reversible,

. GV - for not going looking for Dint,

. Soff - for 810 runs, and to think that Noddi  introduced him to Hashing in 1990,

. SupaSal - for being at the run, and brought the Hub along,

. Poxie - for being at the run, after being every where else,

. Killa - being at the run for 2 consecutive runs, and he had a recent birthday,

. SupaSal - for playing with her phone, I guess she was having a virtual with Ringer,

. Dint - accused Maggie of doing things which he did not do and was reversed,

. GV - for diverting the course of the run by putting logs over Buttons Creek - reversed to Crow,

. Killa - for competative hashing.

. TT - won the Hub for admitting to listening to Dint on the radio. Christ - she could have changed stations.

The raffles were won and won and the winners were -

Killa won the cider,

Poxie won the wine,

TT won the beer.

Next weeks run will be set by Syncro, and that is confirmed by Bedpan. They have had a camping? holiday in NSW and are on their way back. It will be from somewhere that even he does not know yet. Stay tuned.

And an aside. I was the Des driver from the Turners Beach area except Eweturn, meaning me and Maggie,  Cheeze was pleased about that!  On washing the Patrol this morning, I found lots of red spots on the passengers side of the vehicle. It would appear that Maggie and his plastic glass of port were a little unsteady. And 2 very burnt snags were found in the front grill. Gracie our dog was very appreciative.

And thanks to Trakka for fixing up my computor so that I could do this. You know, we read about young people with a fixation of connection with the internet. I felt the same way over the past 5 days because I felt left out, deprived, and lost. It seems to me that it is just not the young people. But I still had my mobile!

Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life - get on with it!

Run 1794 - Cystens Run of the Highs (Mission Hill) and the lows (Waste Water works) of Penguin

And so 17 hashers  (it was me who counted them - and including Boner) met at the tradesmans entrance to Cystens multistoried palace with a view.  At the appointed time On On was called and Hashers went this way and that - the runners this way and the wankers that way.

Don't know where the runners went but the wankers took a tour of Upper Mission Hill, thence down Deviation Road (can anyone remember when there used to be car hillclimbs up that road), up another hill past the cemetery and down the other side to the sewerage works. After some time trail was found on the railway line heading back into town. A slight variation up over a quite steep big group of rocks at the back of the caravan park had hearts thumping. From there it was an amble back over Penguin Creek and back up and up to Cysten's palace.

There was some consternation that Soff had not arrived back at the palace so GV and Thrust went looking. You know, Pioneer told everyone that Soff was probably at Yep's place half way up Mission Hill.   And she was right. You don't go past a Hashers house if the lights are on. I knew where I was.

Back at the Palace, Cysten presented a feast suitable for his serfs - lots of vergies (cooked and uncooked), snags, steaks and nibblies.

Bastard did the lip because he was back from the big island -

. Cysten - for a top run and great food (we have not worked out whether he had assistance)

. Cysten - for 300 runs,

. Boner - for 55 runs,

. Crab - for 155 runs,

. OD - for 25 runs,

. Pioneer - for 414 runs,

. Thrust/Eweturn  - for chatting during the lip,

. Bastard - because he had a recemt birthday,

. Soff - for accepting Yep's offer of a beer,

. G V - for something stupid,

. Dint - for something stupid,

. Crow - for looking a little faded after a big weekend at Bakers Beach.

The Hub came back from overseas and arrived in Thrust's boot and that's where it stayed.  SupaSal will have to bring it along in person next week.

Raffles were won and won and only 3 people won won.

 - Cheeze won the cider,

- Eweturn won the beer,

- Thrust won the Red.

OD came to the attention of most Hashers by making a mess of her food. She tipped  most of her plate onto the floor. Then, while pouring some refreshments out of a bottle, she missed the glass.

And everyone charged their glass/stubbie for a toast to 'Ere. There was a wonderful rainbow earlier in the evening - a fitting memory.

Tracka and TT are still on the big island catching up with kids and grandkids.

Next weeks run will be from that well known hospitality centre known as Ozrock Inn, just near the surf club in Ulverstone.
