16/7/2012.Mystery bus trip.. no run too cold and wet!
The Ballarat Hash House Harriers met promptly at 6pm... loaded up the Gold bus and headed off into the dark wintery night... The drinks and salty chips were abundant, the crowd was quiet but expectant of fun and pleasure from the Chicken master and committee. It was dark but we were heading down melbourne freeway... (not Lake Learmonth)
First stop was the farmer wants a wife pub... Wallan. Moving on, the mystry tour continues to the Gordon pub... unlike Wallan, plenty of farmers and wives and renowned for the home of world championship billards.The tension was high in the game as Fluid Movement slipped silently past the table, interfering with the crucial shot. The conciliary 'down down" was refused and the farmers & their wives replaced their teeth and boots, which had been left at the front door and left the pub. Fortunately so did the Hashers... The crowd had livened - comparisons between how these country folk spend their Monday nights to us Hashers were examined and also the salty chips and plenty of alcohol had started to soak in.
The joy spread through the bus as we pulled into a familiar venue "Donegans farm".
Great night thanks to the Chicken master and committee
