RUN NO. 2359

We gathered at lower diplo ready to set off at 5.15, after a lovely day off due to the public holiday. Haven’t been to lower diplo for a while so it was a nice change (except for the amount of rubbish that people had dumped around the area – very disappointing ). However all was forgiven when none other than our dearly beloved Mad Marg turned up for a reunion hash – so nice to catch up with old friends! Just to make it even more special, Alison was selling off various Xmas fete yummies in time to be eaten and then re-purchased before Christmas.

The trail had an awesomely steep hill that seemed to be vertical in places! However the views at the top were worth the scramble. We found out later that the recee took 1 and a ½ hours with two kids (ages 6 and 7) so congratulations to them! The front horn was Mrs Pingu while the back horn was taken by Alice in Wonderland. The first check (in some slippery when wet places) was found by Dr Dolittle, while Ikea and Speedy Gonzales found the second. Sid was particularly pleased with her pace on the night (until she found out that everyone she caught up to was sick!) Sorry to burst that bubble!

The on on was really well attended (it’s usually much harder to get people to change locations after the run – lots of people head for home instead – but tonight everyone was in fine form). They must have heard rumours of previous fabulous spreads put on by our glorious Glamour (who, by the way, was celebrating her 1150th run and her 60th wedding anniversary!) Fantastic achievements! My favourite quote had to be, “As you get older, your price goes down” when Glamour was describing her gifts.

The on on started with first time guests; Lee from the loan service and Sarah who was here on a flying 10 day visit. We also welcomed two new hashers into the fold; A big ‘welcome, welcome, welcome’ to Alzbeta and Chihiro. (Don’t forget to study for the test!) Then it was time for the birthdays – Hotlips, Bunny Girl, Dr Dolittle, Sticky Rice and Trailblazer all managed to stand up in time but poor old Duchess of Cambridge was discombobulated by the excitement and noise and totally missed her chance to get a down down – at least she’s guaranteed to get one next week as she’s a hare!

Anyway, after that there were a lot of announcements – far too many to remember them all! Finally it was time for the hashit – Dizzy was pleased to get rid of it so quickly. Bunny Girl was the lucky recipient as she had a man on the hash (said man was happy to pose for photographic evidence of crime – leading this writer to believe he was quite happy to set her up!) Don’t worry Bunny Girl – you can get your own back at kid’s hash ;-)

Next comes the highlight of the night – another fabulous feast put on by Glamour – divine! Then there was time for hash shop sales (very profitable night – as long as everyone brings their money next week!), interesting conversations and a few liquid refreshments. Wonderful night – don’t forget to come next week to Lucky Gardens for another evening of fun and frolics in the Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures! on on

RUN NO. 2358 DIPLO 29OCT13

RUN NO. 2358
DATE: 29 OCT 2013
SITE: DIPLO ---- Halloween
HARES: Psycho/Rachel T
SWEEPER: Mrs Pingu

It was twilight as the run start time was a bit later than usual at 6 p.m.  JM Ikea made sure we paired up and staggered the start, with a note that no running was allowed and to "walk slowly". With the realization that my co-hare for next week was nowhere in sight, decided that mental notes were required if we were to have a run report.

I paired up with a guest - Jessie and Duchess of Cambridge and Le-Anna. We went in  passed pretty  tea lights in the pipes around Diplo, complemented later when it got dark by fireflies galore. We were told the "out" would be by glow sticks rather than paper....

As we approached the jungle, amid witches in covens, screams and screeches were heard ahead as the scare team got into action.  Equipped with torches we had to keep an eye as to where you tread as we followed the stream with lots of roots to trip over and fallen trees to duck under.  Then it was up.....and up.....guess you had to get up to the ridge sometime if you are down by the river! Smurf had perfected her glug and many trees that you seem to hang on to assisting in the uphill accent gave you a feel of "yuk".....

We spied Psycho in a hidden huddle but her "blue" by her side gave her identity away - lol!
Smurf was playing with her favourite toy and getting all she could with her water gun.  Gave me a hair wash - she did notice as she said after "I think I got you!"

All out was confirmed by Mrs Pingu who was sweeper and the scare team gathered back at the tent and started preparing their ghoulish feast.  Poisoned refreshments appropriately labeled jam jars were served with the jars free to take home - good way of getting rid of what you don't need again. Food included: Caterpillar Sludge (yummy),  Mutilated Chicken, Roasted Flesh, Re-gurgitated dinner, and dessert of Blood cake, faceless jack-o-lanterns amidst great d├ęcor and Trailblazer dotted the table with Eyeball chocs, and gummy cats.

Pumpkin carving competition was well subscribed with Readymix winning the grand prize.  Thank you hares for the gifts which included life pumpkin plants and cute baskets. Best costume went to Le-Anna in her forgotten bride costume which got a few people guess who was under the veil/mask. Someone even thought it was Pee Wee which prompted remarks like "too skinny" for Pee Wee - not meant to be unkind!

Someone shouted Dizzy should get the hashit as she had arrived at hash looking for a guest whom she did not know the name of?? Psycho gave her a surprise dunking as she was in a hurry to get rid of the hashit she got last week. A new member was introduced - Sarah P.

A great evening enjoyed by a coven or more! Definition of coven by the free online dictionary - cov·en (k v n, k v n). n. An assembly of 13 witches.

Enjoy this weeks trail - pretty by the ponds, look down at the top to see where you have been! Definitely a Kodak moment.  A waterfall or two if it has been raining. Wear longs if you don't like bracken on your legs. Pretty pitcher plants to see on the way. Enjoy.


NEXT RUN: Lower Diplo - onon at Glamour's - celebration two birthdays and Glamour's 60th wedding anniversary
HARES: Trailblazer/Sticky Rice
