What a day to begin those New Year’s resolutions – a more gentle hash has been promised for the next couple of weeks for those who want to begin exercising more gradually. But then to stop those FRBs complaining extra challenges are included for those who need more wearing out. Hashing is obviously a good cure for a hangover according to those present today!
The hazards were gentle, sand, a slight klinker slope, and a cable to step over. Louise was feeling eager to take on this new challenge. The on-on was out of the gate and towards Long Beach. Blobs of hash had to be weighted down with quite large rocks but the trail was found and followed. At the Saints Beach Hut circle check, Whisky Chaser was found to be soaking up the sun she couldn’t be persuaded to leave the beach for a little run, something to do with a late breakfast at Two Boats Club. The wait gave hashers a chance to look at the sea damage earlier in the week, memories of a soggy escape for some present (and an unresolved quiz). The on-on was called back along the beach and up around the back of the old fuel tanks.
At this point the slope became steep and some began to think of new names for Menoporsche. Others were able to demonstrate levels of extreme fitness running the slope and holding conversation at the same time! A circle check offered a great view and 10 press ups for those caught with hands on hips. Not Pinky Boo is quite a task master when spotting someone offending!
A nylon string across the path threatened to stop the runners (or knock someone off their bike). No knives but some fit kids who followed the string found an old weather balloon, the string was gathered and pocketed, the on-on was called and the route was followed up to the guns.
The option of a run down the track was turned down by most and the steps were taken as a quick route to the beers. Shipwrecks a plenty, resolutions of fitness for the New Year, champagne corks popped and lanterns sent burning into the night.
Happy new year to all Hashers past and present, where ever you may be following that trail.
