Hares Front and Centre:
Rosemary and Jack, Jackie and Bob, were brought on to the concrete
podium reserved for our On On event for a deliberation on their
premeditated act of pleasurable torture (for most of us)!
As we are all a bunch of perverts anyway, we highly commended them
Oooou!! wasn't it nice going up those hills?! "Ooooh Yes",
Oh, my God! I heard some of them say
at the offer of a sip
of water as their legs and other things turned to jelly.. In fact,
this happened to our GM very early on, after the first metre up!!
(Read in this what you wish, but I saw him take a dive into the
Well those who were blurting out those suggestive exclamations,
were also privileged to witness some of the most breathtaking views
we've ever seen! Always with method in their madness those Hares!
Half way up (and up, and up, and up) and around we saw a strange
marking: BN! Meaning
Be Nice? Big Nerds? Bend Now? No no no.
It meant Beer is Near! Bunch of Nerds!
The Hares having covered the trail on four wheels, pre-empted that
the runners may run out of steam and would need refuelling. How
right they were! So with renewed energy, after having reduced the
beer stock to depletion and taken in the unspoilt view, we tackled
the rest of the trail.
This time down, down, down and round, round, round we went towards
home with a last bit of hill to negotiate - just so we could finish
as we started: heavy breathing (like the GM?) and tongues hanging.
There were lots to be appreciated on this run! Its good respectable
length (GM?), Hills galore, nice weather, hard path for us to avoid
the traditional shiggy if we so wanted, the famous BN and last but
not least, the good crowd which turned up and the good spirit it
brought. Three cheers for the Russell/Domaingue coalition. When
it was all over, we were informed that we had just climbed MOUNTAIN
RA's Down's Down's: Chosen theme: Good news and Bad News
Good News: The RA presented the GM with a Swazi T Shirt offered
by the Swaziland Hash Grand-mistress. Actually there was a T Shirt
and model. The GM rejected the latter!!
Bad News: Our RA had 4 Downs Downs on the Swaziland Hash because
he wouldn't stop talking about the Mauritian Hash. Made a
real hash of it all!
Now on to the punishments:
Juliet for running a beachwear company
Gilbert for boasting having downed 8 whiskeys and 1 bottle of wine
the night before and .. no Headache!!
That's because there is nothing in it to ache!
Claude for sneaking on Jean
., Jealous of his pristine look.
Richard for failing to recognise Beer at the Beer Stop!!
Phil: He is always well creamed off. Should he be L'Oreal
? Is he Worth It ? Or should he be Smelly Down Under
? What about Joker in the Pack ? Sleep on it, suggestions
invited. (Use our feedback page)
(Filthy Phil ? - Note that he works in the drain business
Jimmy the Greek with an unpronounceable name: No problem there
A big Hooray for Anand. Many thanks for well planned and delicious
Smelly Blue T Shirt:
The lucky bearer of the SBTS until the next hash is Tom for 'Cruise'ing
down a hard short cut.
Found itself in the arms of Isabelle (lucky thing !)
