111 March 2010 – Seaman @Beacon Hill

111th Run Report 7th March: Seaman Beacon Hill Top run

It was a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon when the pack started gathering in the carpark at the Beacon Hill Reserve but there was no sign of the hare. Eventually Lost Patrol remembered that the run started up the hill at the Gov Phillip Lookout. Once up the hill, we found the rest of the pack. There Seaman gave us instructions on how he marked the runners (red) and walkers (yellow no green no pink – whatever) bio-degradable plastic strips – not. He did promise though that he would go and collect the strips before boarding the plane to Thailand.

The actual run got off to a hesitant start with very few of the plastic strips to be seen. Down the hill we, well some ran, most ambled, went passing a terrific soccer match. Here the front runners, including Cinders, were too busy running to look for arrows indicating the trail but did manage to get across Willandra even if at the wrong place. We then ran around a few streets before crossing a bridge to get into some bush to get us to the next street. Here Siberia, watching half a dozen hashers running up the street, obviously on trail, plaintively calling out,” are we on?”

Then it was down a bush trail to the eponymously name d “Famous figure eight” which no one ran because the out trail was visible from the in trail.

Now the pack headed up Lady Penrhyn Drive where the walkers rejoined the runners and headed into the bush on a fire trail. Off in the distance Centrepoint and Pee Dub kept heading up the file trail ignoring the red strips indicating the trail. On the way down the hill on the bike tracks there was great reluctance by most of the pack to check out the “Decision Trails”, in fact, Cinders did them all.

From here it was a straight forward run home for most of the pack. Most that is, except NSOM who somehow lost trail with only a few blocks to go.

Once home, the best thing that the scribe saw was the bucket being carried towards the scribe who then had a well earned beer along with the other runners.

Finally Seaman served up delicious meal of baked potatoes smothered in chilli con carne

Well done Seaman and enjoy your time in Thailand.

Hash Prayer
(uttered before the Down Downs)

    Our lager,
Which comes from Heaven
Hallowed be thy aim.

Thy will be drunk,
In the Down Downs, and also in the tavern.

Give us this day our foamy head,
And forgive us all our spillages,
As we forgive those who spill against us.

And lead us not into deprivation,
But deliver us from hangovers.

For thine is the ale,
the bitter and the lager.

Forever and ever
On On
