DATE: 14 MAY 2013 --- MID YEAR COMMITTEE RUN -- GLOW IN THE DARK RUN
SITE: TUNGKU BEACH
HARES: Hash Hound/Mother Nurture
Greetings fellow Hashettes. Last Tuesday saw us follow the signs off the coast road and down onto the sands of Tungku Beach for our Glow in the Dark Mid Year Hash. After a slight hiccup when we had to drive over to the starting spot on the eastern side of the beach, due to the tent having been erected in the wrong place I believe, enthusiastic Hens milled around eagerly awaiting the signal to flap their wings. Sure enough, 5.15pm saw the departure of the flock off along the scenic beach hash trail. With ladies moving at their desired speed, and many stopping

to snap pics of idyllic scenery and action poses, we wended our ways hither and thither until we reached the midway point. To our delight, we were greeted by a friendly sea nymph who offered us a free cool beverage which of course being polite, we could hardly refuse. So joy of joys a hash that provided a beautiful walk or longer run, a spectacular sunset, fine weather, an unusual lack of hills and a drink to keep us going.
On our return the tent was abustle with Hens clucking over the range of scrumdidlyumptious food that was making the tables groan as well as our lovely new t-shirt (many thanks to our Hares) with its slogan on the back proclaiming that we ‘don’t sweat, we sparkle’ – never a truer word was spoken. So although we were licking our lips and hushing our tummies due to the aromas wafting from the table, we quietened down to enjoy the shoutup. We had if I recall correctly a first time guest and a new member welcomed but the highlight of the night was surely the bestowing of names upon four illustrious Hens. Those added to the illustrious roll of Named Hashers were Wonder Woman (Nicki TC), Twinkletoes (Erin), Mother Nurture (Clare) and Mighty Maple (Kim). After this excitement and once the rest of the formalities were concluded (wasn’t there a hashittable sinner in there somewhere?) - Ika for not educating her guest on ethics of hashing - Ed, all lined up to choose from the tempting array of food. So there we sat in the dark as the evening wore on, everyone a-glowing, a-sparkling and a-glittering (including some strategically placed circles on various parts of the anatomy) feeling full and content, enjoying the bonds of friendship once again until with heavy sighs we packed our chairs and bumped slowly up the track towards our homes.
