Hare - Ninja Winja
As the early arrivals drifted in at a quite chilly "A" at Wong Nai Chung Gap the talk was of the weather,the ballet,of various injuries. Whoa! Rewind! Ballet? Ballet!? Is this the LSW hash or is this the Womens Auxiliary Balloon Corps? Having said that Any Fanny Will Do (EADWDF) admitted that he was merely trying to demonstrate his sensitive,caring nature by taking his squeeze to the ballet. HTFU!
And so it was that a pack of some 25 finely honed athletes gathered in the falling darkness,chomping at the bit as they listened to the run briefing including the G-string-esque Wambos/Rimps split marking. Off we went down the road & into the Mt Nicholson "secret" trail & soon the G-string split revealed itself. The wambos scrambling straight up into the shiggy,up the ropes, & coming out at the Mt Nicholson aerial station. Down onto Blacks Link,schwinging left onto the HK trail,Middle Gap Rd,Mt Cameron Rd,Wanchai Gap,contour trail, & finally a straight downhill plunge on Bowen Drive then On In to Lockhart Rd Playground. About 1hr 5mins for the FRB's. Not sure who won the hash but there was plenty of racing going on. OnOnOn to the Indian Bash in JoJo mess where the indian clientele were treated to a superb evenings entertainment. Having said that the family on the adjacent table looked like they had just eaten a dog turd as opposed to their onion bajis.
