RUN NO. 2157 - TASEK LAMA 22DEC09
RUN NO. 2157
SITE: TASEK LAMA
DATE: 22 DEC 2009
HARES: Never Wrong/Trailblazer/Leah/Magic Roundabout (absent on holiday)
HENS: 27 CHICKS: 4
FRONT HORN: Ryvita BACK HORN: Eastern Promise
Since I arrived at about the time the sign in board was being put away, the first part of the report relies on quotes from those who did arrive on time. The run took place on a warm, dry afternoon, unlike the last time we had been at the site on Founders Day, which saw many Hens slipping through the mud. The ladies kept on their feet and headed up hill for the start. The route incorporated lovely views and 2 checks. Both checks were found by returning hasher Running Bare who was visiting from Manila. It was great to see her back. The front runners would have enjoyed the company. The last 4 who went in went off paper and did their own thing it seems but all came out safely in the end. A good run. Many thanks.
The On On was at the poolside and started with Christmas cheer in a cup served by Santa at the resuscitation centre – how apt. It was certainly an evening for celebrating. There was a great range of festive food on offer. Thank you Never Wrong for cooking the turkey sponsored by the hash. Thanks to Trailblazer for coordinating that and to everyone for bringing something along. The hares in their Christmas T shirts (sponsored by Mr Wright) were thanked and we thanked Magic roundabout for the lovely cake that she donated as a lucky draw prize. This was won by Bunny Girl (although only because Tango was away or she would have won it!). A down down was given to Ryvita for so willingly taking on the role of front horn week after week and we welcomed Nellie’s daughter who was hashing for the third time. Apparently we are all mad in the nicest possible way. I am not sure anyone would argue with that! It was time to say farewell and good luck to Sarah who returns to Brisbane on Saturday. We wish her many more happy hashing days in the future. The best dressed awards for the evening were given to Bunny Girl, Possum and the highest award to the lady in the Christmas tree, Wina. As we ate and drank the evening away we had a visit from Santa who gave us all gifts from his secret sac or was that secret gifts from the Santa sac? We thank Santa for visiting us during this busy season and for allowing us to sit on his knee. There must be a few good shots there for another calendar. Bring on the New Year and another decade. On On.
