RUN #252 – A RUN FOR THE WET ONES – BALGOWLAH

To go or not to go – that was the question.
No contest, this is the Hash, of course you go.
Or so 5 of us thought. And the 2 Hares. Arrival at Geo’s house in Balgowlah saw us directed around to the tradesman’s entrance, complete with directions where to sit and not make a mess. Fair enough, as a wet mess was likely anyway, due to all of us being soaked.
So who came, I hear you ask. Crum and Crumpet, as they had the bucket, Pee Dub as he’s the GM and has to come, and me as I do the writeup. The only other non-obligated attendee was Bren Gun.
Run time saw sideways glances about who would brave the rain and wind, and Crumpet, Bren Gun and I pulled on our gear. The trail was explained and we set off. Around the corner and BG turned right, totally opposite to the directions. Go figure. C’pet and I turned left on arrows, and spent the next 40 mins in pleasant conversation while not having to put up with any inconvenience from weather. Cool but bracing.
Back at the ranch the GM had made a hot vegetable soup, the beer was cold and the Hash red wine was uncorked. The Hares were warm, dry and happy, as was the GM and Crum. C’pet and I set about doing the same. No sign of BG.
An hour’s chat pulling the world apart and another successful Hash run was behind us.
I do think that a few soft cocks should harden up a bit and attend these runs regardless of weather conditions, as there’s a lot more satisfaction in doing something like the run than sitting at home achieving nothing. A little inconvenience is a good thing.
Anyway, there were 5 Hashers total who did turn up, and we 5 thank the Hares for their efforts in less than perfect circumstances. Oh, and BG did eventually turn up.
On2 to run 253 in August.
