Hare: Sun Bean
Ramsgate RSL was the backdrop, weather good, location good, but the numbers were
thin on the ground, compared to last week’s hoard. A lot of hashers away on holidays I
Sun Bean had set the run under duress. Wearing a sling over his arm after breaking his
wrist in bed!! Not a bad effort considering he was on his own. It was “just a crack” he
said.------ Some “crack”!
Anyway, Bingo was flat out chatting at 6:30 and had to be reminded it was time to hit
the road (that’s not “Anyway”, just the ordinary type anyway). So it was off to the south
and not long before the first on-back. Sticky and Poddy had teamed up for a chat as did
Rex Hunt and Nefertitty. Tickle was lamenting having foregone last week’s Christmas
extravaganza and missing her Goon tonight. At the first park crossing poor Merkin had
to carry two scooters across the park for the billy lids. Doc, Kizzme, Blondie, Just An
Inch were led by Moses on the pilgrimage back to the bucket and the ravings of the
stand in Religious Adviser, Merkin. A visitor from Guam was wearing shin pads for the
run, said he needs them running around Guam? The run crossed Rocky Pt Rd and down
to Kogarah Bay. QR, Steve and Dundee were leading the field but the calls were few
and far between and missing the Duck whistle for the Lemmings to follow. Across
Beverly Pk Golf course to find Courtesing, stopping to inspect some shrubs at close
range or whatever? Then up and across Rocky Rd again and down to Scarborough Pk to
find some more trees and a creek. QR was tempted to shortcut across a tree straddling
the creek but thought better of it and crossed the bridge instead. It was then a spinnaker
run back to the bucket and a coldy.
Lickety Split did the run review and although a short 6 km, gave it an 8.9/10.
The wounded Hare, Sun Bean also received his 200 run badge.
Happy New Year to everyone and see you in 2010.
Everyone must supply a recipe. No matter what!
Post Christmas lethargy did not lead to thirsts being slaked and many a cold one was downed
prior to the call of 'circle up' from MERKIN who managed to take time out from playing with his
toy aeroplane, which Santa brought.
First up was the hare SUNBEAN, who set the run with the assistance of MELTDOWN.
SUNBEAN required assistance as he only had the use of one hand. I hope that does not mean
MELTDOWN also helps with SUNBEAN'S other one handed pursuits. LICKETY provided the
run report and said there was a lack of hills, it was pleasant, there was some bush ( we all like a
bit), there was a golf course, a tennis court and it was 6 km's long. It rated 8.9/10 which is about
the score the hare gives himself in the Mrs. Palmer department.
A little information about the run compiled by Goon:
28th run in Ramsgate by B2 H3 (all runs)
5th from the RSL
RSL is 400m from waters of Botany Bay
Patrick Moore was granted 60 acres of land in 1812. Scarborough Park was created in the 1830s
from part of Pat Moore's Swamp, and it was named by the Hon. Thomas Holt after the English
coastal town of Scarborough, Yorkshire and the First Fleet convict ship which was briefly
anchored in Botany Bay in 1788.
The area between the Cooks River and Georges River was originally known as Seven Mile
Beach. It was changed to Lady Robinson’s Beach in 1874 to honour Governor Sir Hercules
Robinson’s wife. Cook Park is named after Samuel Cook who advocated it as a public pleasure
area. Ramsgate was named after the seaside resort in England. A model village was originally
planned for the suburb but later abandoned.
There is even more....
Ramsgate Baths, The Grand Pde, Ramsgate Beach, NSW, Australia - Heritage listing.
The pool has significance for the following reasons; it is the last surviving timber pool enclosure
occurring within the Botany Bay/Georges River area; the new pool contains an intact section of
the earlier pool with other parts being reused in the new structure (ie capwales and piles);
although a pile and framed enclosure, its construction technique and use of materials is unique
within the Sydney region; it has social importance to locals as a former gathering place; and, it
has associations with the local swimming club and various swimming champions who were its
HEADLIGHT told a true story dealing with vegetables, blow jobs and paraplegia. LICKETY told a
joke involving a tailor and a differently abled person while SUNBEAN also told a joke which was
not worth detailing.

Well done to all the visitors for honouring us with their presence.
MERKIN nominated BINGO for taking too long to change for dinner. DUNDEE was guilty of the
same offence, they were both sentenced and drank the dreaded down down.
SUNBEAN was given his 200- run badge. He must have done 200 runs.He is now a supreme
Announcements included the need for a hare on 18/1. MUDDY manfully (I know another
description could be used but I'm too lazy to think of one) took on the challenge and will set a trail
from the Earlwood- Bardwell Park RSL, you know the one, where STRINGY set his latest run.
Prickette BINGO announced she will be showing her full moon on 3/1, that is the Full Moon Hash
is running this Sunday from the Old Fitzroy. Be there to see it.
That now brings an end to this comprehensive on-on report, I look forward to seeing you all at
the JUSTY/MOSES abode in Woolooware next week. I wonder if MOSES still has some
on on HL.

SPREADING GOOD WILL TO ALL
A LETTER FROM Grandma.
The other day I went to my local Christian bookstore and saw a “HONK IF YOU LOVE
As I was feeling particularly exhilarated that day as I had come from a thrilling choir performance,
followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.
Boy, I’m glad I did !
The uplifting experience that followed really made my day.
Stopping at a red light at a busy intersection, I became lost in thought about the Lord and how good
he is that I didn’t notice that the light in front had changed, it is a good thing that others also love
Jesus because if the fellow behind hadn’t honked I’ve never had noticed.
I soon found that LOTS of other people love Jesus! as while I was sitting there the guy behind
started honking like crazy, and he then leaned out of his car and screamed “For the love of GOD!
GO! GO!....what an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus.
Then everyone started honking!...I just leaned out of my window and started waving and smiling at
all these loving people, I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!
I also saw a guy waving a finger in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air, I
asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant and he said that it was probably a
Hawaiian good luck sign or something.
Well, I’ve never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck
sign back, my grandson burst out laughing, he was also enjoying this religious experience.
I then noticed that a few people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they had got out of
their cars and had started walking towards me, I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I went
to, but that is when I noticed the light had changed, so I waved to all of my new found brothers and
sisters grinning like mad and started to drive away.
I was the only car to get through the intersection before the light changed again and I felt kind of sad
that I had to leave them so soon after all the love they had shown and that had been shared between us.
I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last
time as I drove away.
Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks.
Eddie wanted desperately to have sex with this really cute, really hot
girl in his office .... but she was dating someone else.
One day Eddie got so frustrated that he went to her and said, "I'll give
you a $100 if you let me have sex with you..."
The girl looked at him, then said, "NO."
Eddie said, "I'll be real fast. I'll throw the money on the floor, you
bend down, and I'll finish by the time you've picked it up".
She thought for a moment and said that she would consult with her
boyfriend ... so she called him and explained the situation.
Her boyfriend says, "Ask him for $200, pick up the money really fast. He
won't even be able to get his pants down." She agreed and accepts the
Over half an hour goes by and the boyfriend is still waiting for his
girlfriend's call. Finally, after 45 minutes the boyfriend calls and
asks what happened ...? Still breathing hard, she managed to reply,
"The bastards got 20c pieces!"
A sexy woman went up to the bar in a quiet rural pub. She gestured alluringly to the
bartender who approached her immediately. She seductively signaled that he should
bring his face closer to hers. As he did, she gently caressed his full beard."Are you the
manager?" she asked, softly stroking his face with both hands. "Actually, no," he
replied. "Can you get him for me? I need to speak to him," she said, running her hands
beyond his beard and into his hair. "I'm afraid I can't," breathed the bartender. "Is there
anything I can do?" "Yes. I need for you to give him a message," she continued, running
her forefinger across the bartender's lips and slyly popping a couple of her fingers into is
mouth and allowing him to suck them gently. "What should I tell him?" the bartender
managed to say.
"Tell him," she whispered, "there's no toilet paper, hand soap, or paper towels in the

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will
not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a
generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure
in the real world.
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you
to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't
be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a
different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your
mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now.
They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to
you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest
from the parasites of our parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS
NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as
MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the
slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very
few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the
coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

THE SYDNEY BIKE
HASH IS BACK! http://sydney.bikehash.com/
"A Drinking Club with a Cycling problem!"
After a multi year absence, we are back! The Sydney Bike Hash will re-
monthly cycle rides, somewhere in the greater Sydney area.
Our 1st ride is Sunday the 10th of January 2010. See location below:
Bring yer bike, Bring Virgins, Bring $10 for the ride and drinks (Beer, wine,
bubbly and snacks).
All bicycles welcome. This is a social fun ride, not a race.
Norm and I (Dingoberry and Coming Anyway from Thirsty Hash) are revitalizing the Sydney Bike
Hash. For those of you that don’t know what a Bike Hash is, here is some history behind it… We
are a loosely knit international group (running and cycling) with chapters in over 160 countries
around the world. There are nine running Hash groups just in Sydney! A typical bike hash
involves one or two members (hares) leaving from a pre-arranged starting point and marking a
trail using chalk arrows through cycle ways, roads and trails for the 'pack' to follow on their
bicycles before they reach the ending spot, where the refreshments are waiting for you! To get
there you have to follow the trail the 'hares' have marked. The whole concept is based on the old
English game of "hare and hounds". The trail is typically 15-20k in length, cycle friendly and
covers a wide variety of terrain.
We will be meeting monthly on a Sunday in the afternoon somewhere in or around Sydney and
will go to a local cheap n cheerful restaurant or pub afterwards. This is a non profit group and all
money will be filtered back to participants.
See attached flyer/website for further information or contact Coming Anyway (Rose) on 0411 222
542 or Norm (Dingoberry) on 0424 137 777
