34 shivering, shaking, shambolic (in terms of dress code) Hashers gathered at Queen's Pier for the JSM Junk for a Boylers Buttwoman Ball Buster Bonanza!
Giving the (very false) impression it was to be a "live hare" run again, women, children, and Motormouth were sent off first to give Buttwoman the chance to get a head start. It became VERY apparent early on into the run that the hares had heard about some new fast runners coming, as they'd PRE-SET the run in the afternoon!
After the first (of three in total) checks, the Rambos were signposted off up one of the peaks. Hopeless, with a rare sight of (night-light?) got past the fading Dave Kilburn, only to find a "CB" chalked at the top. Cunningly nasty - return BACK DOWN to the Wimps run!
A second Check Back shortly after, constituting the last real "Hash Marking" bunched people together again, but from that point on it was basically an "On Home" for 40 minutes. Big Bitch reliably informed the Scribe that this week's run was a reverse of the last Boylers effort, and better, as we went UP the shaggy, not down it. Coming off the shaggy was a 4km concrete sprint home, via a wrongly marked arrow down to the beach. And, amazingly Motormouth was not last back. BUT, the boat did not manage to pull away from the pier until well past 21:30.
