[Hhh] Hash Trash - 20/10/2014

Hi Hashers,

Next Run
What: AGPU
When:   27th October 2014 at 6pm
Where: 93 Rous Mill Rd, Rous Mill
Hares : Lost with space (Sue)

NOTE:  It was suggested that the event have a collar and tie dress code.  Though this was not "locked in", as this is our first AGPU, Hashers may want to make a bit of an effort.

Last Run
When: 20 October
Where: Nesbitt Part, South Lismore
Hares : Procol (Gary) and Alternative Root (Mary-anne)

A good collection of walkers and runners gathered at the car park of Nesbitt Park to take on the course laid out by Procol.

The runner's started off with a lap around the track while the walker's took the shorter distance to the road.

The course took both the walkers and runners on a winding route through South Lismore, along train tracks, over a worn-out bridge and crossing back and forth over the Hollingworth creek before taking everyone over the Richmond river and down past the spray painters and roses on the eastern side of the river.

At the HHH mark runners had the choice of two ways to get back to the beginning.  The shorter path involved backtracking along the way that everyone had run.  This resulted in a number of walkers giving up and heading back before reaching the HHH, a site that they will one day come to regret.

Back at Nesbitt, Hash Brown (Peter) (one of the walkers who remarkably kept pace with the runners) provided a report from the walk, aided by interjections from other members of the walking group.  It was noted that the walk was the "best walk in years" that collected a few dunny canes (I am not sure if I wrote that down correctly), someone attempting to usurp No More Gaps (Faye) of her title, and everyone collecting many farmers friends.  It was noted that the walk was a very educated walk because it took on the three R's.  Rail, Road and River.

Yarnbomber (Dayle) was volunteered to provide the report for the run.  She had been focused more on just being able to "last the distance" and as a result had not taken that much notice of how the run went.  Though she did comment on Bituman's (Patrick) ballet impression when trying to signal that he had found a circle on the ground.

Down Downs were given to:

Procol - Hare and host/cook
Alternative Root - Hare and host/cook
Yarnbomber - 50 runs

Snags, spuds and Salad went down a treat with everyone having a great feed (though maybe some tomato sauce would have been the icing on the cake - or the sauce on the snags in this cake)

NOTE: Bali Interhash  20-22 May 2016 - start saving now....

Apologies for not providing a list of the next run locations.  My list is out of date.

On On!
