Donuts Electrifying Run

Hi everyone

I'm sure you all enjoyed the run last night despite the cold wind. Donuts did well to take care of all possible contingencies.
Not only did he have a water stop on the run in case it was too hot but a hot wired fence for those who found the night a bit cold. Very thoughtful Donuts.

We welcomed back Drambuie, Remote, Heavy & Cleavage. Welcome back also to the newly weds Squizzy & Mooseburger....or was that Furburger after the honeymoon.

Significant runs: Cleavage 169, Candida 123 & Rocky & Drambuie who came together on 789.

Welcome to Lester the Molester & Scrubber from Western Suburbs. They were promoting their AGM on 2 Dec.
Ok... so I did wrongly accuse them of stealing our book but they did look like a couple of deviants and given they were from the highly suspect Western Suburbs hash what was I to think.
Sorry Bent Nose, but your character references don't count for much.

Shafted was shafted last night and got 4 down downs for the price of one. We are down to 4 glasses after Shafteds' run. All you wine connissuers (oops spelling?) who kept hold of the glasses to drink your vino in BRING THEM BACK.

Next weeks run is Half a Bar/Bras run at the Meredith pub. It is the one off the main road (the main rd pub is shut down anyway).
The meal will cost $15 for 2 courses. Fish or chicken with apple crumble for desert.

1/2 a Billy & Bear Box Run

Hi Everyone

Well, what a difference a tart makes. We had a 1/2 decent run, plenty of trail, lots of drinks & awesome salads. Shame we couldn't see any of the meal but I guess that just heightened our taste senses. Mind you most of us are used to doing it with the lights off anyway!

Welcome back Drop Kick & I think we drew the short straw this week as Deep Heat turned up as well.

Congratulations to Criss Cross who was our Super Runner this week. 600 runs big effort.

Significant runners were Rowdy 727, Deep Heat 797 & Snags who did it for himself & got Mounty to do it for him as well. Sign the book twice I mean..

This week was the Remembrance run & the R.A (Rowdy) revamped the Ode in honour of our fallen hashers. On On Midnight, Russell Up the Publican & Arso.
I'll put a copy at the end of this blog.

Western Suburbs have their AGM on Tues 6 Dec for anyone who wants to go.

Next weeks run is at Donuts place - 609 Post Office Road. BBQ for the on after.

Remembrance Day

We are growing old, as all Hashers are meant to grow old;
We are all railing against the dying light.
The irreverence of Hash
Attracts us,
And the heady mix of exercise, friendship and humour,
spiced with catalyst of alcohol and release
Attracts us,
As moths to a flame.

Beneath the light of the Southern Cross,
We honour the memory of those members of the
Ballarat Hash House Harriers
Who have flown too close to the sun.

Russell Up the Publican

When the lights are on, and we search for a friendly face to
talk to, we shall remember them.

When the lights are failing, and we look to a tall prick to
change things, we shall remenber them.

When the lights are dim, and we wait for the magic smile to
be flashed, we shall remember them.

And always
By our fluorescent socks, we shall remember them.

At the going down of the sun, and at completely random
moments during the days that follow, we remember, and


Cheers Lois Lane

I'm Back!!!

Hi Everyone

Your leader is back. The rellies have headed back to Scotland after a 3 week tour of our adopted country. Found out all the family secrets & the answer to that age old question 'what do Scotsman wear under their kilts'

I am also found out that speaking softly is a family trait!!! We are born with that curse.

Back to Hash matters.. Once again Glider put in a lot of work to make his Melbourne Cup night a great success. Great effort.

Significant runs this week were BP 838. Me 515 & Half a Bra 414.

Congratulations Squizzy & Moose Burger on your wedding this Saturday. Snags never had his bridesmaids on hand to share in the celebrations so Mounty got a guernsey as the stand in bridesmaid for the night.

Don't forget the venue change for next weeks run. It is now a BBQ at the Buninyong Gardens.
