Date: 6th January 2020……………. …..
Location: Main Beach …………………………
As the punters convened for the start of run 2201, the setting was oddly familiar. Had we been here before? Was this going to be virgin territory? How challenging would the run be?
Bollocks to that, nothing new here folks.
A collection of keen and athletic hashmen were champing at the bit to start the first run of 2020. Oops, wrong Hash.
The 35 members of the Gold Coast HHH who turned up at Macintosh Park chatted amicably and enjoyed the balmy summer evening.
Earlier, Hard On and Shat had minced around Main Beach, holding hands, as they set a run that would test the hashing ability of these seasoned hounds. When that didn’t work, they slapped a bit of chalk on the pavement and went off for a glass of red.
The fairly straight forward run managed to get the better of Banana and Arsenik, as they lost the trail twice and, at one point, were seen heading over Sundale bridge to Southport.
Back at the bucket, much hand shaking and “Happy New Yearing” was interrupted by Mrs Hard On when she dropped off the delicious chilli con carne for hors d’oeuvres. Val would later make a return appearance with the apple slice and ice cream for desert.
KB and Aussie were hard at work grilling the bangers and onions for the main course. Aussie’s toasted buns are a real treat (and the bread rolls were good too). But I digress.
After much milling about, the GM took charge, sort of, and called the circle together. Defying gravity, he leapt upon a large boulder to better stamp his presence on the proceedings. Wasted effort really.
Jigsaw gave the walk a score of 6.5/10 which some thought was a bit generous.
When no one volunteered to do a run report Hard On stepped forward and gave it a score of 10/10. Funny about that.
Sir AH was very complementary about the nosh and said that Val had done an excellent job.
Down downs went to the hares, Hard On and Shat.
Then DDs went to the returning runners, Y2KY Jelly, Pepe, Botcho and Sir Prince.
Sir Prince, as RA, regaled the assembly with extracts Of Christmas Hash runs of yesteryear. Notably one “Wes Polanski” and his antics. Particularly humorous was the account of Weekly’s “Whore on the Hill” shenanigans.
Miscarriage was berated for calling the home number of a fellow hashman at 5:30 on a Monday night to chat up the missus. He then received a DD for using his little blue dingo digger to fuck up his neighbour’s fence. Talk about a shit magnet.
Chargers from the Floor resulted in Aussie, Fullashit and Sweathog receiving DDs from Y2KYJelly for misdemeanours resulting from the Christmas Run.
Nasty then charged Y2KY Jelly for prancing about like “Fabio” and not wearing a hash t-shirt. Joining him in the circle, Mad Mike was charged by Sir Jo for looking like one of the “Richies” from the test cricket. Is it really a wig? DDs awarded to both.
As the POW was absent, it was held over until Swollen Colon makes his explosive return.
Next weeks’s run is at Helensvale and Cum Smoke advised that it was BYO firewood, DURING A TOTAL FIRE BAN.
And so it was!
