You asked for it

The worst run report of the year, of the best run set by Hill of Grace this year

As transcribed by the Voice to Text feature of my mobile phone that was securely clamped in a hands free cradle, trash recorded during my work trip driving to/from Canberra today. (with some minor corrections of the really bad transcription errors)

The circle was more a series of disjointed axe (arcs) as the hashes (hashers) following the guidance from the hair because Ryno (there are no) rules in hash ran off to place their orders for their own in (ON INN) delicacies The hashes that arcing (are keen) to go past (asked) the RA why isn’t there a circle yah (The RA) pointed out he was politely waiting for PP when asked where is PP he said yes she is

Hairs (Hare) in circle Hill of grace the hair told us a total (tale) of misery and demonstrated 2 foot arrows but she said there had been rain so those arrows are probably gone I’m thinking oh no what’s this a repeat of the last two weeks with no Trail but wait the hair says I have remarked the trial this is remarkable a remarked Trail but it’s a different budget the arrows are only 2 inches long marked in waterproof chalk and waterproof chalk as all hashes know it’s hard to see

the vast array of hashes all 10 of us had it (headed) off the runners off to a slow start getting organised walking it seems in the first Walker runner split where the runners said goodbye to Shaw tutor (short sheeter) who has (as) a walker was running this is confusing after the split the runners followed trial (trail) keen to run charge up the hill realised we had lost the trial back down the hill what’s this trial goes through a locked gate unlocked soggy toilet paper on the trees guiding us along the easement between the industrial complex and the school all the way to the bottom and loopback around the road back all the way back up the hill where we joined up again with the walkers Trail Runners wondering where (whether) all the walkers have a (are in) front time or a behind become apparent walkers run was short shortcut when runners following trial came out of reining wall (retaining wall) to the main road to find a cheque (check) marked by the pack to go left running along until as described by all fours afterwards the chargeable offence is (as if it was) happening in slow motion has lost Jules obviously catching a contagious tripping disease from over the top went over the top and tripping and falling on an otherwise smooth concrete path apart from the gravel he landed in tumbled in tart upon learning that laws Jules had a tumble tart was keen to learn if lost Jules had lost his cool and sworn tart of course keen to off load the dummy after regaining his feet and joining the rest of the walkers and some were coming back on back perhaps then gathered in confusion studying the maps where are you where are we where is the Trail we need to go back we have lost Trail look beyond the last check there is a mark in the other direction on on is the cry shortly we came to the bush track a bush track in summer is a good thing will strike in late summer after the rain is a good thing down the stairs down the stairs down the stairs it’s a lake no no Bestos dump (oh no it’s an Asbestos dump) by this stage we have concluded that waterproof chalk is expensive due to its frugal use all of the bush track around around but wait what’s this I do not cross here it’s a safe (safety) barrier I can see why the wooden walkway bridge above the Bestos is held together with chickenwire but pashas (hashers) will venture where no one else will don’t be chickens walk across the chickenwire held together dilapidated wooden walkway you find that the expensive waterproof chalk is even harder to find in here walkways are improving the more modern reconstituted recycle plastic grid then last work arrows pointing over the bridge and then nothing follow the goat track leading from the bridge round around past the children’s chair as a rest stop on to Blackman Park for the porch door (port stop) (in) this case it’s the chocolate board stop (port stop) Should it be called the bipolar thought stop because you either loved it or hated it after we all surprisingly found port we headed home we set off around the park Arana (another runner walker) split oh joy into the bush again another slightly less travelled Trail not in anyway over marked bye excessive chalk up dow up dow along around up up up up up back onto the road back to the car park and the circle runners having time to establish beers as the walkers came in it was duly decided due to time brochure (pressures) the circle was reconvened to occur at the on in Hog had pre-empted the cooking process as the circle reassembled in as a rectangle around the table barely had the RAA started before interrupted by food deliveries should this be called RAA portion interrupter (interuptous) the charges were few and far between the obvious one being lost yours (LJ) for loss control short sheet (Short Sheeter) provided the walk and run report the food was had the food was good the day is done as many of the committee were there there (their) general discussion included new logos so another week goes by and the dummy spit award stays with the inaugural a dummy spitter on on until next week‘s dubious quality hash trash report

More Information!

We are Sydney’s newest Hash and are actively looking for people to join us. If you have found out about us from one of our flyers, thank you for following up and welcome! Please read on and see if this is for you. You are more than welcome to just come along to see what we do, no obligation. For locations of our upcoming runs, see above.

The Hash is an international phenomenon started over 80 years ago, with groups found in most places of the globe, all over Australia, and the best of which can be found in Sydney.

We get together every Monday evening to go for a walk/jog/run that lasts about one hour. Our trail is set by the ‘hare’ and is marked with (environmentally friendly) chalk or flour, forming the trail that we Hashers follow. The trail is set in a different part of town each week, depending on the whim of the hare for that week. After the ‘run’, we have a drink or two to quench a well-earned thirst and afterwards, there is an open invitation to a cheap and cheerful dinner close by.

Newcomers are always warmly welcomed and will be matched with a friendly old-timer to show you the ropes. No experience necessary! Please come along and see if you like us. The first time is free and after that the usual cost is $5, which includes drinks at the post-mortem circle and at the dinner.

If you don’t live or work close to the North Shore, then please give one of the other Sydney Hashes a try .

How Did We Come About?

A bunch of us belonged to various Hashes for years but over time and with circumstances changing (such as moving with work or family) we got too far away from them for it to be convenient to attend. As we live and/or work on the North Shore and there is no Hash convenient to us, we decided to start a new one. With the large number of people working around the North Shore and similarly, the large number of people that we see out in the neighbourhood either walking, jogging or running, we decided to give it a go. Thus the North Shore Wanderers were born (over many beers and wines at Trust Me’s on a Saturday evening in late August 2004).

With a lot of work put in by the committee and encouragement from many seasoned Hashers, our first run on 15 November 2004 was spectacular. More people turned up than we ever imagined and we thank them all for getting us off to a great start. However, the serious effort now begins with the objective of introducing as many new people on the North Shore to Hashing (and the Wanderers, of course) as possible. As they say, the more the merrier.

Please let me take this opportunity to thanks the following Hashers for their encouragement and support in the early days:

Dirty Weekend, Lady Di, Right Said, Double Pay, Top Bunk and Mistletoe. I also want to thank the two harriettes who got me into Hashing all those years ago, namely Eveready and WD40.

What Are We?

Many people like to pound the pavement in isolation or to a stopwatch, we like to do it together in a non-competitive way. We’re just a bunch of normal people who like to keep fit and socialize. It is much easier to motivate yourself if you have a regular commitment and a group of friends who participate. We do not charge membership fees and we are not a club. You simply contribute a set amount (currently $5) for the drinks each week.

Our Objective

Our objective is for everyone to join in and be social, we thus ensure that people are not walking the suburbs on their own. The runners/joggers/walkers usually leave in groups and they (sometimes) get a map of the trail so they can decide how much of the trail they can fit in within a reasonable time limit. The Trail Master marks the trail with helpful arrows once the right trail has been identified.

About the Hash

The Hash House Harriers is a world-wide phenomenon. There are many other websites that can tell you the full history of the Hash so I won’t go into it here. We do not (usually) advertise, and mostly people hear about us by word-of-mouth.

Each week, we run in a different but pre-determined part of town and a person is nominated to set the 'run', this person is referred to as the 'Hare'. The run is marked with chalk, flour or paper (whatever degrades quickly) which the rest of us (called the 'pack') follow. The objective is for all people (walkers, joggers and runners) to get back at the same time. This is achieved by laying ‘false trails’ and ‘on-backs’. In essence, we are a non-competitive bunch. After the run we form a 'circle' and have fun as we talk about the run.

The evening finishes off with everybody going to an arranged place for dinner, usually a reasonably priced, down-market restaurant, someone's house or some other special arrangement. Then we go home and do it again the next week in a new location with a new Hare.

Haberdash

To identify ourselves from the other people on the street, (other than the familiar calling of "on-on") most of us wear a Hash shirt of some kind. These are plentiful and all Hashes frequently produce them for special events. Check with the Haberdash for available items such as T-shirts, polos or rugby tops.

The Rules

Rule 1 – There are no rules!

Rule 2 – See rule 1!

Mis-guided Principles

Although there are no rules, the following mis-guided principles have been put together and are generally ignored:

  1. NSWHHH aim to cater for runners, joggers, walkers.
  2. Committee members should be given a break and not be in the same position in consecutive years (unless elected in absentia, or it's a really pissy job that no one else wants).
  3. The Annual General Piss-Up (AGPU) to select a new committee is to be held annually in November.
  4. Runs are to be set predominately on the North Shore, or wherever the hare of the day decides.

The Details

The founding committee has after long and arduous deliberations, amply lubricated by beer and wine, decided on the following in terms of running the Hash:

  1. We run on Monday nights at 6:30 pm.
  2. The hare supplies at least two maps of the run, one for the Trail Master and one for the walkers.
  3. A grog bucket will be available at the circle.
  4. Run fees $5 for everybody except virgins (have never hashed before). Any claims to virginity will be subject to examination by the committee. This fee covers the run and circle activities. You turn up, you pay.
  5. A pre-run circle is held with instructions by the Hare on the trail ("clearly marked, no one should get lost"), and to introduce visitors and virgins.
  6. During the pre-run circle, the RA will pair up any virgins or out-of-town visitors with a local Hasher to help prevent them from getting lost, and introducing ones self.
  7. During daylight saving, Hares should be mindful that "too much bush is barely enough".
  8. The Hash Cash will keep track of the number of runs people attend.

Hash Hymns

Singing is a tradition in Hash and is what sets us apart. Here is our theme song.
