RUN NO. 2429 DST 10MAR15

RUN NO. 2429
DATE: 10MAR2015

“Words don’t come easy,” said my fellow hares.  So I landed the job but that gets me out of washing up!!!

DST is always good to stretch ones legs and run/jog/ or stroll around depending on how you feel when you arrive at the site.  As I was on Back horn I happily plodded round the trail.  I was on hand when the front runners had disappeared into the distance and first check was an “on back”.  I was just behind Tiffany who found it.   The horn came in handy, so we didn’t have to use our voices to get everyone’s attention.   

Most of the run was as flat as a pancake with a few rise and falls, a bit of tromping through the jungle and a splash in the mud to finish.  Second check was found by Speedy and Hash Hound sniffed out the third (or was it the other way round? – can’t remember as I asked that question after the gin swirls)

Short run;
A handful of us decided to go on the short run for a nice walk about and go slow as we like. On the first turning, lo and behold was a swirly. MGTS saw it first so she took that one. And then we lost pink paper and as we were looking about I found a swirly. On paper we went with JM’s Squeak & Twinkle Toes and Smurf not far behind. By the time we twisted, side stepped, oh look a less muddier and wet path, we have counted up to 9 swirls stuck all along the short run after each of us got a swirl. And guess where we ended up before the out… the bog! There was nowhere around the bog but to slosh slowly right through.

The shout up was rather eventful as we welcomed a new member Karen, who unfortunately forgot when to drink so was awarded the Hash Shit later in the night.  But then again our JM was having trouble with her words and that was before the gin started swirling.

Our JM entertained us with a Dr. Seuss poem which had been adapted especially for Jane.  She has procrastinated for a long time about joining the hash - as she doesn’t like water, mud, going under or over logs, snakes, creepy crawlies or anything else that one might associate with the ladies hash in Brunei.  Think it was the social life and wonderful ladies that make Tuesdays so lovely that finally enticed her.  Jane is now known as “Sam I am”.

There were a few announcements – red dress day on the 24th March and Hash relay in April.  Crumpets were on sale but not for the next few weeks so hope you stocked up.  New Zealand Ass is holding an amazing race in May.

The March birthdays were celebrated and lots of cake was consumed – ladies are always willing to break the diet or healthy eating for a piece of chocolate heaven.  Lucky for our waist lines the hares had prepared yummy salads to balance it all out. (Trailblazer shouted security with leftover chocolate cake, got a "Thank You"!)

Mean Machine introduced us to a new game – Gin swirl – a real hit that I’m sure will make a re-appearance.  4 ladies to a team, but as Smurf discovered it is better if you are all the same height – stand around a Frisbee filled with Gin and lemonade.  It is swirled around and you drink when the liquid comes near your mouth (not snorted up your nose as someone tried).  Now I know why the Frisbee was invented!!!!
