The run started off with a shock to the system and a vertical ascent. Chests heaving we reached the top. There was only time to briefly draw breath and we set off again in a vain attempt to touch the skyline. From there it was a case of through the bracken until the paper stopped. Second check was called. It was found along a dry river bed and the hash was again on the move. A lot more up eventuated and at the very top, as we paused for breath, a check was called. It was found before too long. A back check for variety, and the hash moved on at a steady pace until a thinking hasher was heard to say, "Hey I've been here before". After that it was just a case of down, down, down and out.
There was a bit of a wait at the out as some hashers had enjoyed everything so much they had decided to do another circuit. In fact this was Cheryl's first time in hash boots in several months and this may have been her reason for attempting a second circumnavigation of the route. Possum was flashing away as the hens came out.
It was a most enjoyable run, and it is important that we thank the Ripas team for their cardiovascular workout.
The Shout Up was a noisier than usual affair with locals attempting to join in through their exceedingly effective loud speaker system. Items of particular note. There were two first time guests, Kay and Aida. Jasmine flew in from Australia for her annual hash. Peahen received her 450 run and Hana received her 50 pottie and was named the Cheeky Check and Annabel was named Bracken Bard. A scandinavian baby gift was also presented. We wish you all the very best.
We said a sad farewell to two hashers. Mother Nurture is heading to Bristol, England and Cheeky Check will be going to Harrogate in Yorkshire. At this point Dizzy would have given a big cheer if she had not been travelling in Kalimantan. No calls for the hash hit, we must wait until next week. I hear that there may be a candidate already.
