Run Report: #2110
Date: Wed 26 December 2018
As the Larrikins were such slackar*e basketcases nobody wanted to set a run on the normal Tuesday. Actually I don’t blame them – it was Christmas after all and nobody is that sad to run on Christmas Day surely? However, we were not going to let those diehard Larrikins down and cunningly attached ourselves to join the Harriettes on their Boxing Day run. The majority were Harriettes with a handful of Larrikins – Laundro, Pretzel, Next Week, All Fours, Bad News, Grange, Low Profile, Squeeky, Toothy Job. There was even a Poshman – Moshi wearing a 1982 tshirt.
The run looped around the streets of Willoughby with lots of on-backs and checks keeping the pack together (reminded me very much of the excellent runs that Ace sets!) The runners loop ended up at Chatswood with a total length of 8.2km according to All Fours who was trail mistress for the day.
Back at the bucket we illegally drank alcohol and sang songs! Shock and horror but no Rangers in sight! The council had at least eleven ‘Ban everything’ signs which must have been created for the Hash specifically – ‘No Alcohol, No Singing, No playing of musical instruments, No collecting of monies’… So, we whispered (loudly) the Down Down songs. The circle was presented by the Harriettes’ GM, Shortsheeter. A belated down down was awarded to Pretzel, who thought the run was to start at 6.30pm!
The ON ON was at the little High St Bakery. We were seated outside, along the pavement in the cool of a lovely evening enjoying a variety of delicious Vietnamese/Thai meals.
Many thanks to Maxine for setting the trail, ably assisted by Short Sheeter and He’ll Do and 9W who always drives the emergency vehicle around for Miss Maxine.
The Larrikins are so grateful to the Harriettes for helping them out that we’ll be joining them again on Wednesday 2 January 2019!
On On – All Fours
