Run 2182 Report 12-05-20 Mother at Glebe (Scomo-07)
The Larrikins have run through the streets and the parks and so on of Sydney since 1979 and have never missed a run. Despite the Scomo we have continued the traditions. This has been the Scomo-07 run and this is probably the last of the Scomo runs.
Larrikins who completed the run
Mother (The Hare), Impi, Bren Gun (was sighted traversing the run on a bicycle), IXL, Amanda and Grange.
Mother (The Hare), Amanda and Grange. 1.5 metres apart.
The Bucket was opened at 6:00 pm where the run ended, approximately 100 m from the Harold Park Hotel in a secluded part of the Harold Park.
Many people have said that European food and drink are vastly superior to those of the Australian tradition, but I am sure there can be little that is superior to drinking Peroni Beer and eating Smiths Salt and Vinegar Chips with pleasant company in a secluded part of the Harold Park.
The Zoom Meeting
Participants: Colonoscopy, IXL, Fetchit and Frankly, Laundromat, Singapore Sling and ET (From Brisbane), Bad News (He has sent a map of the run he has completed in Tasmania), Tripod, Phantom and Starboard.
Bren Gun was unable to connect because he did not have the password. Others may have had the same problem.
Zoom now requires a password for entry to a Zoom meeting. This resulted in some confusion. I received a text message from Fetchit that included the password (and nothing else). Immediately I received a phone call from IXL asking what the password was.
A Computer Nerd who was fixing my Wi-Fi network told me that the US Government has forbidden the use of Zoom because it is owned by Communist China and there are fears that it could be used for espionage. (Remember the ban on Huawei 5GL equipment?).
Has Zoom sought to convince us that our fears are groundless by requiring a password?
The Run Report
The run traversed the streets of Glebe and Annandale, It ran north along White’s Creek to Rozelle Bay and then to the east through the parks at the edge of Rozelle Bay and south along Johnston’s Creek and back to the start. There were no checks or On Backs. Because of the Scomo restrictions the Run Map was shown in the Larrikin Epistle for all to see. The trail went through parks as much as possible but runners had to traverse streets between the green bits.
The run included two loops for the runners that could be bypassed by the walkers.
IXL and Grange have provided photographs from the edge of Rozelle Bay that are shown here.
The comments have been that it was a good run and well-marked and set through very pleasant surroundings.
