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
