HASH TRASH - RUN 683

HASH TRASH - RUN 683
Home Alone (Holyland Hash-style)
Place: Herzliya Pituach
Hare: Diablo

For a change, Saturday's Hash was in Herzliya Pituach. Okay, there really was a difference because the starting point was on the other side of the highway. This shift to the wrong side of the tracks (plus her having neglected to include an online map) resulted in Humble Scribe being quite tardy, delaying runners and walkers alike, for which she is truly sorry. There are other things for which she is neither sorry nor humble*, but more about that later.

The weather was lovely and sunny. Taco Balls said it was "hotter than hell" but he may have forgotten what August is all about, or it might have been because he was FRB. On the other hand, RA Fer Fox Sake noted that despite being the hare, Diablo was out in front most of the time. But more about that later.

The half-way point was a beer stop at the home of Doggie Style and Shock & Awe. A few bottles of excellent Samuel Adams created a party atmosphere, we sang "More Beer" and the runners took off. Only a moment later, Deliverance emerged from the toilet, grabbed the Hash Horn and ran out of the garden gate yelling, "Wait for me!", tootling away furiously. The technical point as to whether the Hare was to blame for leaving someone behind if that person was peeing on the Hash, in contravention of all conventions, will be discussed later.

Herzliya Pituach has gone hedge happy, shrub crazy and bush wacky so Captain Caveman had plenty of opportunity to tango with some topiary in the shape of dancers. Surprising that he had the energy after having run 15k that morning and having done 350+** runs in his time with the Holyland Hash House Harriers -- but more about that later on.

Sources inform Humble Scribe that there was some whinging, that FFS was spotted short cutting (Dr. Do-little, where are you? Come back and reclaim your crown!) and that Lager Lout drove over the circle on her way out. During the Down-downs, Boston Creamed was charged with insolence, having interrupted the RA to correct him*** and made to drink quite a lot of beer. Having carried the FRB bell, Neverfucker was called to task for what we hope was rust on his shirt front and Lager Lout was given the task of saying "Yeovil" to an absent Dead Boring. Whatever that means.

Congratulations are due again to Deliverance and Fer Fox Sake, this time for completing the Netanya Triathlon. FFS's time was 02:54:06.85 and Deliverance's was 03:06:51.75 -- she also came in second in her age group. The Munich Marathon and Herzliya Women's Mini-Triathlon beckon.

*I was right though.
** Give or take a couple of hundred runs.

*** Still right though.

DIRECTIONS TO RUN 684
Place: Netanya
Hare: Deliverance

Hash #684 will be in beautiful Netanya. From Herziliyya and Tel Aviv take the coastal road Highway #2 North towards Haifa. Take the Poleg (Ikea) exit and turn left at the light. You are on Ben Gurion. Stay on Ben Gurion until you come a large playground on your right. Pass the playground and take your next right by the large apartment building. Then take your next immediate right into the dirt parking lot. Your hare will be waiting there.
If you get lost call Deliverance: 054-300-5092.

IN CLOSING...
Dandruff and Pusher wish everyone in the Holyland HHH a big hello from Down Under. Also, in Australian-related matters, we wish Russian Bride's girlfriend Jacquie a safe trip back home and apologize for misspelling her name last week.

AND... SHOP TILL YOU DROP
Yarid HaMutagim (the semiannual brand names fair) takes place this weekend, May 24, 25 and 26, at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds. Mega Sport usually gets rid of last year's model Nikes and Adidas with a 2 for 1 sale, making it well worth the NIS 15 entry fee.
