RUN #246 – Xmas run @Long Reef – Starboard

RUN #246 – Xmas run @Long Reef – Starboard


A Sydney summer run, they said, and it looked like it would rain. But that’s normal in Sydney these days. Every day looks like that.
No matter, it’s the Hash, and so we will turn up regardless.
A pack of 32 assembled at the end of Fisherman’s Beach and took off at 16:00 hrs. Starboard had briefed us on the run and we knew it would be good, based on her history.
From the Collaroy Basin on the coast trail down to Dee Why, the trail went through Narraweena, Beacon Hill and touching on Cromer and back to Long Reef. Well set, good markings and a slice of bushland to create interest, which was surprising in the middle of such a built-up area.
This run included not only a terrific Christmas lunch but a changing of the guard. Short Sheeter announced a new committee, and I will leave it to the new GM, Pee Dub, to announce the members. This is because having been delegated the role of writer-upper, I don’t know who all the other members are.
Pee Dub was an unexpected choice to many of us, and we are sure/hope he will mature into the role. This includes the RA handling the jokes. Thanks to the outgoing committee and the GM, Short Sheeter, for their efforts over the difficult period.

Then there was lunch….a table spread full of ham, turkey and salads, not to forget the petite fours to begin, kept us all quiet for a while. Great food, and real thanks to those who prepared and served the meal. Beer and wine to go with it all, of course.

So see you all at run # 247 on 02 Jan, 2022.

All the best for the festive season, see you on Sun 02 Jan.
