FRONT HORN: Mad Marg BACK HORN: Cheryl
HENS: 37 CHICKS: 9
We seemed to be a bit low on numbers as the hashers gathered but as 5.15 neared, more turned up. Mad Marg was front horn and Cheryl volunteered back horn and to a pleasant surprise the run was not up straight away. We ran along the road for a few hundred meters… and then it was up. The front runners were all but half way up a very steep hill when they hit first check… There were only two options – to continue up (which was hard work)… or to go back down … so with some ahead and some on back we all checked for the on paper. Sure enough... it was on back. Cant remember who found it but Cath and her guest Felicity and Satu Lagi were in the right place. Even though we had gone back down, it only meant we were going back up the hill again but on a different trail. Yes we got the hill that we had been promised which went on up and up and up… until we hit the ridge which still was a bit up and down but rewarded with lovely views of the river... including a huge black and grey cloud in the distance.
Second check was at a split in the path…mmm... was Dizzy going to take us down into the depths of the jungle and round..perhaps stopping for a cup of tea at my house in Subok or back down. Well someone had to check so I dragged first time guest Felicity with me and we checked on down. As others checked in different directions, we soon heard the ‘on back’ call and struggled back up the hills again. The on paper brought us along the ridge a bit further and then on down to the sign in board. Just in time too as most hashers managed to come out before the torrential rain.
On on was at Dizzy’s with many first time guests which we hope to see again next week. There was a group of hashit holders this week – Dizzy (for forgetting the Hash signs last week), Mandy Webber (for talking through the shout up), Mad Marg (for selling while the shout up was on) and Sigi (for forgetting to sign in... or was it my fault as she asked me to do it for her…) They all took it is style and it was thrown by a professional… Smurf. We all tucked in to lovely food from Dizzy... posh pasta and sweeties.
