Location: Coombabah …………………………….
This park had a large under cover tables and benches with a nearby toilet block and a few garden taps around. The tabletops made perfect landing zones for the many mosquitos that were zeroing in on human targets. Up went our defense screens when Fanny Charmers allowed nearly a complete can of repellent to be used by ankle scratching hash-men.
There was a friendly and quick visit by the local council officer who left a gate lock so that the park gates could be locked after our use.
Rug, the night’s hare, explains the run and walk with the mysterious drinks stop. The booze master happily informs the runners that as this is the Hierarchy anniversary, all beers this evening will be one dollar. Please do not crush the beer cans.
The runners eagerly set off, followed by the walkers only too pleased to out pace the ever-present mozzies. The run in the dark took us through bush and pedestrian paths, long river creeks, roads and tarmac. An interesting trails indeed. After about 3.5 km the well-marked arrows/flour markers lead us to a private residence.
Outside there were a few tables and bottles of refreshments. In very little time a mixture of Brandy and soda water was poured by Dave into plastic cups for the warmed up hash-men. This magic potion was a Brandy Sour. A drink often drunk in Cyprus. The extra delight was warm cut sausage rolls, which was quickly devoured by the walkers, but still leaving some for the late runners.
Then, off again into the darkness, passing a tennis court and following arrows or the flour trail which the kangaroos like to chomp on. It is believed that there were white-lipped kangas around that evening. A few kilometres more lead us to the base camp.

There was a story about a hash-man who bought a large tin of white paint from ALDI. As this was put down at the car park, the lid popped up and opens, spraying the area with white paint. This person stole away, to embarrassed to face up to his mess. Magician advises he tried to remove the can the following day, but German paint sticks like super glue.
Charge from the floor. Fanny Charmer tells how he invited Truckie and Rug around for a social dinner. After waiting for them for quite awhile, he telephones them. They both forgot. A down down followed.
S-Benzs is the stand-in for the absent POW Miscarriage. He was requested to pass this trophy on to more deserving hash-men. Fanny Charmer, Poxy and Two Dogs were called on. They liked to take off early before the hash terminated. But as some new members have not had the honour to be awarded this POW phallic trophy, it was awarded to Peppe Le Pew. A down down was taken from the phallic drinking vessel.
Mad Mike advised that he had all the results from the recent car rally. Completion certificates were available.
