FRONT HORN: Carol BACK HORN: Julia
A few dedicated hashers turned up in the pouring rain and the refrain, “It always rains at Rimba!” was heard more than once. I would like to congratulate Boel for bringing a first-time guest to the run – excellent persuasive skills considering the weather conditions!! I am sure we’ll be seeing her again.
The downpour turned into a shower, and then a drizzle, and then to a deluge, back to a rainstorm and finally a storm. Carol was very keen on training up some new horns and the back horns function was re-defined as not having to be the last out, but as ensuring that the paper is clearly laid through so walkie-talkies can easily follow it.
While some of us managed a short “umbrella walk”, other hardy hens were off on the paper and into the bush for a run, slip, slide, crawl, shuffle, stagger, climb, descend, dash trek.
Carol and Amanda came out in matching shirts singing, “Meet the JM’s” from It Ain’t Half Hot Mum. At the on-on the previous year’s committee was thanked for their hard work and Not Yet drunk a down-down. It has been decided that each week a joke will be told. This week Alice and Madam Sin both had good ones to share.
I was told that the food was delicious, but I didn’t have a chance to sample it as I had to hash dash after risking life and limb to collect all the hash signs (almost jumping into traffic to avoid a snake!! – although it turned out to be a dead one when I looked more closely.)
Off to a good start!
