22/8/'16 Run 1784  Midlands Golf Club

Significance of 1784 introduced by the very well Wiki-Googled 
SERGEANT ROWDY, the year Benjamin Franklin invented Bi-focal Spectacles.
Welcomes back to LOIS LANE after a 4 month break from hash crap, WYLIE son 
of SILIC back now that they are speaking again & bonding, & DUMB & DUMBER
standing in for GM NUM.
Runners soon got a taste of the swamp underfoot, on what turned out to be a 
good run, & to be screwed by SS as the run at Mudlands.
It was "HEAVY underfoot" as we paused for a Port & Swing Low at our Mate's
graveside. SHAFTED arrived by car as we were leaving, & too late to crack 
the 750 of Rum he'd left there earlier. Foster's night continued at the drink stop
with a welcome slab of blue amongst the green.
SILIC doesn't run (or walk) at Hash these days, but obviously can't even make 
the drink stop without falling arse over head into the mud, to which 
R.A. PUSBUCKET, was not having a bar of the kiss of life if needed. Back to the
On After & much drying of shoes & socks by the open fire. Dinner arrived early,
so down downs were downed on a reasonably full stomach. 
SHAFTED & DR DEATH eventually got their much postponed prospectus meeting
over with, bringing the lever arch out for all to see.
WYLIE made the illustrious ranks being initiated "PIMP",  brought about by his
association as purveyor of the horse flesh trade.

Next week's run, MOUNTIE'S Eureka Run from The Stockade MADE Museum,
& On After at Top Eureka.

11/4/16 AGM Freight Bar

Plenty of visiting hashers for the last throes of the Horticultural Hash. One visitor,Happy discovered a that he is related to the GM by surname.
Thanks to Stubby for hosting us and for his contribution to the drink stop.
As we left for the run there was a whisper about the identity of the new GM. Edward Snowden and Wikileaks have nothing on Pusbucket.
On our return, there were hash tops given out and extended charges by Steamshoes.
The  old committee was thanked and the new GM announced.
Num Num! She will do a great job.
Music, free grog and the meal.
Next week  Boot's run at the Grapes,Pleasant St.

4/4/16 Square Root Day run Cris Cros's

The run was enjoyed so much that part of the pack commenced a second circuit.As we crossed trail, Two Dicks set the last bit in generous style until she ran out of flour.
  Not enough girls drinks at the drink stop though..
New to hash were sandgropers Josh and Chantelle.
Captain Knockers was checking us out for Nash Hash.
Normal was back from Nepal. Fluid flew in.
Spence was given space to explain Square Root Day but this inspired  one of his numerical rants.
Bent has been bent yet again and has used the surgery as an opportunity to have titanium gear changing apparatus implanted.
Precious was encouraged to leave the country. He will however, remain in the same hemisphere despite our sponsorship of his attempt at enlightenment.
Dumb and Dumber and Num Num are now setting up a structural engineering consultancy.
The Icelandic PM, Vladimir Putin and probably Pebbles are involved in stashing funds in a tax haven. Potential Hash Cash there.
D&C is approaching a milestone birthday. SS became tongue tied and we should make allowances.
The Heavy food was corned beef, mash and peas followed by cake - thanks to KFC -and ice cream.
Next week- the last of Horticultural Hash is at the Freight Bar for the AGM. $25 includes 2 course meal, haberdashery and music. As we will have visitors Melbourne, we will start a bit later- but we have been getting used to that.

28/3/16 Rowdy's Daylight Savings at Slaty Creek

Geocaching and  references to an earlier Easter and the destruction of antiquities in Palmyra along with a message from Nepal featured at this run, witnessed by an elite dozen.
A geocaching site was located near the camp ground. Google that.
We initially thought that the trail had diverted to Gesthemane as strange sounds came from a cave, but it was just Shafted being pursued from an old mine  by 1000 wasps.
The removal of the other baddies from Palmyra reminded us of Rear Entry and Road Runner collecting the remaining sleepers from the original Ghan railway line and incinerating them as a camp fire.
The Consul- General of Nepal has thanked Ballarat Hash for their interest but asks that they have a rest from us for a while.
Lois was ambushed by the other walker,Glider and a shortcutting Trail Master.
Sausages,chops salad and a regular sized campfire followed.
Next week at the GM's - 14 Platypus Dve for a run and a Heavy meal.Park at the back but avoid the guerilla plantings.

14/3/16 Pebbles at Haddon Common

The venue proved elusive even for some of our veteran hashers. The Trailmaster was rightly blamed for the confusion.
Fang mde his first appearance for ten years. He was highly impressed by the imroved spread on offer.The magnificent salads and varied protein choices were in contrast to the snags on day old bread of his days.
Some hashers had achieved milestones. This had escaped the attention of thjos on the committee entrusted to bring such events to the notice of the GM. Luckily shafted was paying attention.
Well done to :The Bill 1500 runs, GILF 200 and Beer Fuck who reckons his 100th was sometime in the past. Thanks to The Bill for supplying drinks. It is not what your hash should do for you, but what you can do for hash. The quality of the runs completed is also relevant. Mediocre  is the new standard.
Bait's efforts in demolishing half a bay's seafood on Saturday was noted.
Donut's opinion on the screw's efforts was declared invalid on the grounds that he has not witnessed a run in SS's memory.
Next week at The Grapes for the Awards Night when many face their comeuppance.

Ballarat Rovers have organised a working bee to help Drambuie to clear up around his Mt Bolton block - Eastern Peake Rd then Sawpit Rd- following the recent bushfire there, this Saturday and Sunday. Bring gloves and eye protection if you can as they will be mostly rolling wire.
