HENS: 45 CHICKS: 10
It was a hot and humid day and it was tempting to just sit in our chairs
and relax with an icy drink in Ruthless Pursuit's lovely garden. With
reservations I thought why not after all it would be nice to run in an area
that I thought I knew - a dam, lovely fruit trees and not too many hills
that we could not handle. Besides my co-hare for next week had delegate the
writing of the words to me!
Much to our shock the run was longer than what we have been getting the
past few weeks. I could hear a lot of swearing up ahead ....Fxxx.....!!!
......Shit........! but they plodded on and completed the run. The lovely
view at the top of the ridge and the breeze by the dam compensated for the
longer than usual run. Nearly everybody took time to stop and enjoy
although it would have been lovely if the dam had more water and we could
cool off crossing it.
Magic Roundabout was leading the pack and found first check, actually she
also found the second check although I was too far behind to hear her call
..On paper ..for the second check. Magic Roundabout felt that she had
Roadrunner for company and completed the run in good time. I found it scary
walking back to On On site on the wrong side of the road at dusk.
Back on site we were welcomed with a cocktail and the sight of all the food
cooking on the BBQ, sausages, prawns, onions plus a variety of salads. What
followed next was hip filling....all those lovely traditional desserts
(Apple strudel, Pavlovas, Anzac biscuits, Lamingtons, Minties........etc
all provided for by the Kiwis and Aussies, am I glad to have completed the
Hares were thanked and we welcomed one guest, a Japanese-American whose
name I found very difficult to remember and a new member introdued by
another new member. Again I cannot remmember the name as i must have been
too tired, forgetful or simply .....!!!
Next our JM's did their special rendition for all those April birthday
celebrants followed with a down down, jokes and announcements. Hash Shit
was given out in a different way (the drink bucket was used) to Amanda W
It was a lovely evening and a big thank you to all the Kiwis and Aussies

Enjoy fresh jungle, and great views of places you would all recognise.
Gentle saunter through the jungle and enjoy. Watch out for a few pitcher
plants around, and if you are lucky might hear if not see some monkeys.
