It was medium length run with two big hills. 3.8Ks. Pick up opposite RTB.
A number of Hens ran into the jungle, zoomed around for a while, found the road, got picked up by a bus and came back. Apart from that nothing much happened. There was a nice little sausage dog from next door who came and looked at us when we were sitting in the tent.
But! You may well say, what about the leaves, the rain; the little bridge with new handles; the big hill at the end?
Oh, all right then: The run was very pleasant, along well laid trails, sometimes with leaves and sometimes without. The second check was fiendish and people skittered about all over the place. Everyone came back to the check and scratched their heads in perplexity. Eventually, due no doubt to perseverance and sheer grit, the On was found, ahead; the skitterers just hadn't gone far enough to start with. It rained heavily at one point. Peachy Kean re-laid the paper where it had been washed away so no one got lost. Hurray!
Alas! The tinkle tinkle of little bells announced Possum's last run. At last, after long years of captivity, she has been released back into the wild where, once again, she may swoop from branch to branch or skip freely in the billabongs of her native habitat, to munch upon the tender leaves of the Eucalypt and to sip the amber nectar beside the honey bee and the Swagman of her native land. Cheerio Possum, and thanks for all the gifts and prizes, the lucky draw, the knock out punch and the vegemite sandwiches. My Noosa stubby holder will be a treasured hare-loom.
After all the hilarity and merrymaking, the committee put on some great chicken and veggie curry which was enjoyed by all. Thank you Peeps!
This week's run is a little over 3.K and will contain more FIENDISH CHECKs! (Oh No!). It is on white paper. Don't get mislead by any of the old stuff.
NEXT RUN: DIPLO
