Run 2155 Report 051119 Melbourne Cup Run from Laundromat

Run No. : 2155

Hare: SAINT

Location: North Sydney Hotel

As many would know, Melbourne Cup day is NOT a great run day!

Whilst ROCKY and some reminisced about the good old days -Leaving the CYC at Rushcutters Bay after a six hour lunch and setting off uphill ON a regular run – NOT for the faint hearted – how did we all survive?

But survive we did and a good group of 29 Larrikins and associates gathered at Percy’s hotel for this year’s BIG event. As all good committee people know, organizing anything for the hash is interesting – At first 12 bookings, then up to 40, then down to 22, then back to 36 but NO…..29 paid up starters! (Well we hope that AFTERBIRTH and DOUBLE PAY came good). Great to have Harriettes and friends!

PERCY’s proved a great venue – Good crowd, TAB, lots of TVs, beer choices, nice food, Wines, Larrikins, Larrikettes BUT, of course, The Main Event was THE OUTTA CALCUTTA – Yet again an excellent job by OUTTA and AFTERBIRTH and visitor JOHN. A lot of the pub crowd joined in the fun and the first prize of $1050 went to WOZZA (Not our Wozza). KAFFIR Keefe remained ON the sideline!

Oh yes, THE RUN – well, as the pack assembled – hang ON, there is FETCHIT, FRANKLY, SAINT, IMPI, ACE and PAUL, Big bearded SON-OF-MR Smart from Newcastle – where did these extras come from? Where is VENERABLE? Has COLONOSCOPY arrived?

WHO WANTS TO DO THE RUN? Nobody!

IS THERE A BUCKET? Of course!

WHERE? Around the corner in LAUNDROMAT’s Ford!

WELL, LET’S GO THERE.

WILL WE FORGET THE RITUAL OF THE RELIGIOUS WEEKLY RUN? NO!

Ahhhhhhh, an unsuspecting visitor….Welcome CELESTIAL, nice to know you, are you keen to run???? YES, what a beauty – and so ON went the pack of 1 (yes ONE)!

Says he enjoyed it! Awarded it 9.5! Got a down down, or two!

Wonderful stuff – Fantastic bucket – AND, Laundromat’s car was still there in the morning – Phew!

ON and ON
