HARES: HASH HOUND/SPEEDY GONZALES/MEAN MACHINE
It’s been a long time since we had a live run – and who better to lay it than Hash Hound, Mean Machine and Speedy Gonzales? Tuesday night saw us all gathering on Jalan Muara with the hares looking more and more nervous and already getting ready the reasons why they might be caught (‘I’m injured,’says Hash Hound). More and more front runners turned up (welcome back from the holidays!) and the hares looked even greener.
Finally, it was time to start. The front hares took off and the JMs spent the next 2 minutes reminding the hens of the risks and rewards of live runs, then the pack was unleashed, with the sweeper hare at the back to make sure no foul play took place.
After a very exciting 45 minutes, the hares appeared jubilant with tales of near misses and having to hide in the jungle for 5 minutes until the sweeper hare went past. 2 minutes later the first front runner appeared, having thoroughly enjoyed the run. Everyone else made their way out of the jungle more slowly – a great run for all concerned (although some of us were looking forward to the freebies that come from – someone else – catching the hares!).
Under logs and down slopes
There were 5 first time guests (3 from Gin Trap and 2 from Full Steam Ahead) and 1 returning hasher (Legolas is visiting from the UK). Unfortunately for Gin Trap she hadn’t quite trained her guests as well as she could so the honour of the hashit came her way (note to future bringers of guests – they need to know your hash name and you need to introduce ALL of them to the JMs! Hehehehe).
The food was absolutely delicious (thank you hares!) and the company was awesome (as usual!). There are many things you could be doing on a Tuesday evening, but coming to hash takes a lot of beating!
This Tuesday we’ll be gathering at Diplo for another fine night of jungle walking and comradery. See you there. On on.
NEXT RUN: DIPLO
