[Hhh] Next NRHHH Run Monday 30th March 2015

Hi Hashers

Next Run (no 1549)
When - Monday 30th March 2015 at 6pm
Where - Shaws Bay Hotel, Ballina
Hare - Runnymead  (Enid)

Last Run (no 1548)
When - Monday 23rd March 2015 at 6pm
Where - 1 Commercial Rd, Alstonville
Hare - Feel Free  (Bob)

The heavy rain in Alstonville on Monday didn't bode well.  Yet, the sky cleared on cue making it a very pleasant evening for our walk/run.

We all set off at varying paces, runners criss-crossing with walkers on a couple of occasions.  Pause for a quick chat then off again.

The runners set a cracking pace.  After covering the streets of Alstonville in good time, the consensus was to add a little blockie, just to wear us out completely.  Even so, we made it back to Feel Free's verandah for a recovery tipple while waiting for the walkers.  This gave us time to have a D&M on the difficulty of opening beer bottles and whether the beer was off or not.

Upcycler called "hash circle" only to notice that we had already arranged ourselves perfectly.  I suspect this comes from years of practice.

Neville told us that it was a particularly long walk that evening.  I am unsure whether that was a good or bad thing.

Hash Brown quipped that he obviously wasn't missed while he and Retread were away trekking Kosciusko.  He must have been contemplating this whilst running because he declared he had almost detoured into the corner church (for reassurance? for guidance?).

The runners missed Bitumen but our jokemeister turned up in time for a joke, only to announce that he didn't have one.  The floor was given to Hootu, who appears perfectly comfortable telling a bawdy joke.

Down-down was given to Feel Free.  Thankyou for a fine chicken curry, rice and pappadums.  At first, we thought the night's fare was to be a la carte.  It turned out that the circulating menu was from the pub instead.  A special mention goes to Barney who helped us devour the food.

Goanna will be back next week after her "little" 900km bike ride.

[Hhh] Next NRHHH Run Monday 23rd March 2015

Hi Hashers

Next Run (no 1548 )
When - Monday 23rd March 2015 at 6pm
Where -  1 Commercial Road, Alstonville
Hares - Feel Free (Bob)

Last Run (no 1547)
When - Monday 16th March 2015 at 6pm
Where -  157 Invercauld Rd, Goonellabah
Hares - Impulse (Garry) and Auntie Lush (Alison)

A smallish assembly for the St Patrick's Day run, but all (very nearly) had entered into the spirit and were wearing something green. Some more 'green' than others. Impulse announced that as he had set the run the day before, it was now washed away and so he led the runners off, acting as a live Hare. Neither runners or hare were seen again until the ON ON.  Auntie Lush then announced that on review of the walk it was a bit long, but it was unclear as to whether she had shortened it. Slurrr, assisted with typed instructions (not a map!!) strode off with an ever decreasing number of walkers following. Several walkers obviously took heed that the walk might be long and shortcutted home. Eventually after a circuitous trip around  Goonellabah, the remaining walkers arrived home after a 'more than 6km' walk.

Hootu
attempted to talk about the walk - but the stalwart walkers who hadn't actually seen him on their walk, refused to accept that he was the only one who did the correct walk. Slurrr commented that the walk was a bit long, but the green outfits caused a few toots from passing motorists. Slurrr was also slight bemused by a lone magpie who just watched everyone go by, squawking "f***, f***, f***". Polarised said the run was good with a live hare. Everyone ran hard, but waited for everyone and was very supportive.

Down Downs were given to:

Impulse - Hare
Auntie Lush - Co-hare
Alternative Root - 100 Runs
Di - virgin hasher

Down Downs were also given to the recalcitrants who didn't wear green: Polarised, Tea Bag, Upcycler, Yarnbomber and Hootu.


Great hash grub of Irish stew followed. Many thanks to Impulse and Auntie Lush for another excellent St Patrick's Day run

[Hhh] Next NRHHH Run 16th March 2015 - St Patrick's Day Run!

Hi Hashers

Next Run (no 1547 )
When - Monday 16th March 2015 at 6pm - St Patrick's Day Run (wear something green!)
Where -  157 Invercauld Rd, Goonellabah
Hares - Impulse (Garry) and Auntie Lush (Alison)

Last Run (no 1546 )
When - Monday 9th March 2015 at 6pm
Where - 11 Martin Drive, Lismore
Hare - Teas Bag (Leah)

Thunder rumbled and the skies blackened as a small group of hardly hashers gathered in Hare Tea Bag's garden for her seemingly traditional wet run. And wet it was. The heavens opened as ON ON! was called and a surprisingly merry gaggle of umbrella-ed hashers wound their way down the road. An even smaller group of runners had already streaked off through the rain. Whether you were travelling at the speed of sound or ambling at the pace of an injured snail, you were destined to get wet on this run.

Slurrr and Space Cowboy led the walkers on a weaving trail through the streets around the University. The runners, who were following the marked trail, soon raced past, with Spin Cycle pounding along in a very competitive second position. Draggin' The Chain strode resolutely on, but her resolution dissolved at the first hill. Realising she could not make an early exit without everyone noticing, she strode on and up. New(ish) hashers Helen and Jane appeared blissfully unaware of the rain (and hill) as they walked along, deep in gossip/discussion. Alternative Root chose an alternative method of ascending the hill - walking up backwards.

Atop the hill, which really was quite a modest hill, the rain stopped and, after a Hash Halt, the walkers continued their weaving trail, passing St Vincents Hospital before heading On Home.

Religious Advisor, Upcycler called a Circle, which, quite fortuitously, had already formed, and asked for comments on the hash.

Procol, speaking on behalf of 50% of the runners, said that although the runners had told the walkers where to go, they didn't. The runners followed the trail throughout, had a great run and 100% of the runners finished. Spin Cycle, speaking on behalf of the other 50% of the runners, turned lyrical and said that the runners were followed by rainbows all the way. It was never explained quite why she appeared to have spent the entire run looking backwards.

Turning to the walkers, Runnymead said she had been too busy talking to notice the walk (how unusual). Miss Took however demonstrated that she had been keenly attentive throughout the walk. She commented that she got very wet. Lost With Space expressed her terror at being out amidst thunder and lightning, especially when walking beside 'Lightning Rod' (Saddle Sore). Still, for those who noticed, everyone agreed it had been a great hash walk.

Down Downs were given to:

Tea Bag - Hare for her traditional wet run
Plugger - A spectacular 250 Runs (Goanna complained that he kept getting his nipple played with by Harriettes, adjusting the '2' on his top. Plugger did not complain at all)
Bituman - for arriving late - and not wearing any hash gear!

Great hash grub of bubble and squeak patties followed. Many thanks to Tea Bag for a memorable hash run and hosting the hash on yet another wet night in Martin Drive.
