The run title may be a wee bit dramatic (a King Shit creation?). A few years ago, the mere mention of Pyro haring would have the more recalcitrant runners stay home for the night. But Pyro has gone soft in his old age, and tends to no longer set the ballbusters of yore. (I am pre-scribing here, so this may come back to bite me in the arse. Time will tell.)
Actually, it’s time for me to get ready. I’ll be back after trail…
Well, it’s been confirmed that Pyro likes his trails non-Abu Dhabi and 360º checks. Trail wasn’t particularly long but we’ll cut him some slack as it was his birthday, so he probably had better things to do.
We had two milestones today: Abandoned Pussy is 400 trails old and On-In ran his 800th tonight. AP refused her half yard down down on account of being “responsible” and not wanting to “DUI” but On-In gladly attempted the challenge of downing his half yard in… over 5 minutes. To be fair, the beer was very cold and even a regular down down was hard to swallow (that’s what she said).
Mucky pulled a Dastardly and ran her own trail (after she lost the rest of the pack).
Hardly and Twisty brought some snacks, and there’s nothing better tasting that free snacks. Thanks!
Hares: Dastardly and Hardly Where: Joyce on 4th, Calgary, AB RA: On-In Attendance:15
This was another exceptional(ly slippery) trail by the hash’s most experienced hares. The pack was advised to bring their strap-ons (crampons) but some chose to do things their own way: Skewb needs no strap-ons when he’s got his equipment (little pricks) on his person (which he screwed on himself) and Snow Blower chose to freestyle it on his summer runners. Apart from one near-miss, he managed to stay vertical all trail long.
Because they didn’t have the entertainment of slipping on ice, walkers regaled themselves with tales of public wankers.
Down Down were held at regroup and Daisy and Blue Balls lead the choir (but did they though?).
All in all, it was a successful afternoon and as Slippy commented, it was nice to be able to see marks again!
Hares: Tighty Whitey Where: Bebo Grove, Fish Creek Park, Calgary, AB RA: On-In Attendance: 26
TW set a trail in the style of the “Choose your own adventure” books of our youths. This made for an exciting if not confusing run, where people got lost and wished they had picked differently.
Here are the notes shared by the RA:
Choir: King Shit and Skoob
We had a Visitor straight from Germany
Strap On Cramp On went missing on trail. This is due to the fact that she trusted her infallible inner compass. Because Liquor Lots doesn’t know any better, she opted to follow Strap-On and they both managed to finish DFL.
Lying Sack of Shit and many walkers did not see the pieces of flagging and beer hidden behind the park bench. And they call themselves hashers??
Dastardly filled in for missing Beer Wenches – where are they?
Hares: Daisy Duke and Master Router Where: Aforza, Calgary, AB On-In: Wild Rose Brewery, Calgary, AB RA: On-In Attendance: 8
This was definitely the coldest run in a looooong time, and this – apparently – made hashers’ weenies shrink!
Only 8 hashers showed up for trail this week as it looks we have a lot of fair weather hashers in our midst! The only hasher that was completely unfazed by the weather is Vinnie (aka “On the Piss”), King Shit’s Malamute.
On On! PMS
