Hares - Bobbledick and Joe "Benghazi" Schembri
A combination of many Hashers away for Xmas, Bobbledick sending out the Hash News to Ruggero on 24 December 2001 16:16, followed by Ruggero's dispatch at 25 Dec 2001 23:50:29 resulted in an elite pack of six runners, including the co-hare, Joe.
No need to send out the Hash List for this crowd : the hares plus Hopeless (providing car for transporting bags to "B"), Motormouth, Carolyn, Monica Ng and Dothan.
An EXCELLENT run started off with a sampan ride to Tai Ngam Hau (look it up on the map!) via Trio Beach. Through the village, and up the hill to a Wimps/Rambo split, with the Rambos as a "check back". Confusion followed with no T's found, and no On On for the Rambos (everyone elected to run the Rambo run). Eventually the pack found where the Rambos joined back the wimps, and tried to run the Rambos backwards(!). Getting confused, they cut their losses, and ran back, until an "open" check was found.
Hopeless led the charge through the newly cleared brush (courtesy of recent bush fires). Hitting a water pipe, the pack followed it back to the main path for a fast sprint past the Yacht Club, and onto the main road above The Lions Park. Here Bobbledick picked up the pack for an "environmentally aware" run through the Lions Park facility, taking in displays of fruit and veg', as well as livestock.
Back to Bob's for Mulled Wine and a few beers before breaking up and heading home.
The Hare - finished off the Mulled Wine from run #1282!
