Run#184 The Trash
Good to see at least 20 people were able to find the Surf Club car park this week. Brad and Sarah had a second go at getting people to turn up and while Brad was left to do the domestic trailer duties Sarah and a virgin ??? took off to do a live run. Pretty adventurous considering Sarah has just recently become un-virgined herself. A shit run of course with short on backs, clumps of arrows and lots of running. I checked online and it was 5.5kms and I managed to run nearly all the way, no wonder I was so thirsty. It was good to see a few oldies back, especially Commando who has moved back to Broome and obviously dragged Effing along for a run. Slang was back and in good form and even Cockup managed to get around the trail without a major breakdown. Better mention Muppet who, despite her age and having had the most routes of any Hash member, was sticking to the front of the pack, just like the old days. We also had a few virgins which was good. A.T was RA but had to wait for 4 stragglers so he could start the circle. They got lost and ended up running along the bush track which is pretty stupid as it was an all chalk run and there was no flour trail so obviously no bush. I suppose just turning up at hash qualifies them for being stupid anyway. The circle started with a rerun of last weeks circle and Sarah and Faucet having to down a beer. What dedication those guys have, the sort of legends you will tell your grand children about. I’ll keep the egocentricity short this week. Now for the interesting bit of the blog where you actually learn something that might help you in the future. Hash is a great place to learn all sorts of things and Monday was no exception. I now know what a Shewee is. Not that I can see a need for me purchasing one but as Broome hash is predominately a girl hash I can see they may be all the rage. No more of this sneaking off to squat in the bush, just line up with the boys. At the risk of being accused of plagiarism I have cut and posted the description directly from their website. Shewee, the portable urinating device, is a moulded, water repellent plastic funnel that allows women to urinate whilst standing or sitting and without removing clothes. It is ideal for outdoor pursuits, hash and long car journeys or for travelling abroad. (I actually added the hash bit). Now to change subject completely, the food was great. Some meat thingies in wraps. Very gourmet.
