NORTHERN BEACHES HASH RUN # 250

PEE DUB TURNS ON A CELEBRATION
To celebrate 250 runs on a monthly Hash means that it has existed for nearly 21 years. Now some of the members have been members for almost all of that time, and still the NBH3 has a core of enthusiastic people.
As I go back to somewhere near the beginning, I fondly remember a lot of the early birds: Donga, Next Week, All Fours, Inky, Himaloafer, Siberia, Starboard, Breathless, Crum and Crumpet, Kaffir and Geo.
Others also, but these are the immediate names that come to mind.
Anyway, some move on and are replaced by others. This is healthy. One of the replacements a long time ago is the GM, Pee Dub. Regular attendances and participation earned him the exhalted position he now holds, and as the 250 th run arrived during his term he resolved to make it memorable.
Not only that, he made bloody long as well for the runners trail, which I possibly should not have selected. No matter, the run took off from the edge of Sugarloaf Bay and took a scenic path around the waterfront, following Middle Harbour to the edge of Roseville Chase and back along a difficult path and eventually back at the start. 10 km I was told. The walkers trail was obviously the correct one to take, as the on on was well under way when I eventually got back.
A feast was presented in the Mexican style, delicious, it was and meant that some of us overdid the food. No shortage of alcohol and plenty of good cheer made for a great on on. Even Pee Dub’s joke was acceptable.
Being able to have a bush setting so close to town and plenty of tables and
 chairs was a bonus. Well organised.
So of course we’re looking at another 250 runs, and that will take us up to 2043. Naturally I would expect that we will all be there for that run, also.
So congratulations to the NBH3 and all its enthusiastic members. Lets keep up the pace and ensure its longevity.

I wonder if they’ll have Mexican food at the 500 th?
