Great views from the top....
DATE: 7th August 2013
FRONT HORN: Mrs Pingu
BACK HORN: Trailblazer
FIRST TIME GUEST: Hannah from UK
The smallest group of hens gathered around on a fine afternoon after a deluge earlier in the afternoon.
No sign of the tent… but we did ask Readymix to order one.
Cheryl was very pleased to hand over the running of the hash to Mrs Pingu who had just returned from her holidays keen and eager and was promptly given the front horn. Warning of stingy things at the start was relayed, shortish run with two checks was received from the hares.
We set off with Mrs Pingu running up the stairs, and then Hot Lips with niece Hannah just fresh from her holidays as well enthusiastically went past the climbers.
Trailblazer was not far behind and as warned the hornets were out and Hannah got a couple of sting. She was not sure what had hit her as she felt great pain, but Trailblazer urged her to run on quickly but not before she spotted a small snake looking for refuge upon hearing the thundering footsteps of the hashers.
Soon we could hear Mrs Pingu calling “checking” and soon the horn was tooting indicating the on paper. So keen was Mrs Pingu that she ran on and found 2nd check, before the rest of the pack had caught up.
We stopped for a breather at the top taking in the great views and then it was downhill all the way. On the out we say Jenni from the block and Readymix coming the opposite direction and advising that Misayo had been stung by hornets, and some hens had turned back to administer some first aid.
We were soon back at the tent, and food to share started to arrive … yummy dips, mixed cocktail nuts were shared as we waited for the rest of the hens to get back. Thank you ladies for a great spread.. Ika brought bakso (an Indonesian specialty), Glamour brought some of her homemade goodies, yummy desserts ..
First time guest Hannah was welcomed, and Possum updated the hens about the collection for Linggis grandson David.
With the summer holidays coming to a close, we look forward to more ladies returning for the runs as the last few weeks has seen only a turn out of about 20. As usual few set around for a while but the evening drew to an early close as the rain stayed away for another cool evening.
