SITE: MATA-MATA - ST PATRICKS RUN
HARES: STICKY RICE/SATU LAGI/CLOVER
FRONT HORN: MRS PINGU BACK HORN: NEVER WRONG
It was a pleasant afternoon with no rain in sight and a gentle breeze.After a false start along the wrong paper we found the correct paper and discovered a few challenging climbs to begin with.The trail was quite long with a few water crossings but the water was clear and cool and there was not too much mud.Ikea found all checks. A very enjoyable run.
The hares gathered for the shout up all dressed in many shades of green to celebrate St Patricks Day. .
There were two first time guests.Urema from Macedonia and Moana from New Zealand.and both said they will be back.
Clover celebrated 150 runs and Sticky Rice celebrated 100 and treated us to some Irish dancing.
It was a night for celebrations as there were March birthdays Ready Mix,Ursula and Wendy and also Psycho's wedding who's beautiful wedding album we were able to view.
We then played Irish bingo and some hens given prizes for their tenuous links to the Emerald Isle.
Of course the hash entertainment had to be Irish jokes told well by Sticky Rice
Rachel was given the hashit for not educating her first time guest in the proper drinking etiquette.
It was a fun and lively shout up even though quite a few were missing due to school holidays
The hares provided delicious soup and bread.
HARES: POSSUM/NEVER WRONG
