Vale : Harry – Thank You
April 19, 2019
To the Sydney Hash House Harriers
I would like to express my thanks to all the Posh for your continued support for Harry and myself.
Thank you all for sending flowers. They are truly beautiful and greatly appreciated. Thanks also for the many calls offering help and support.
I would also like to say a particular thank to so many of you special guys for your ongoing support for Harry over the last few years whilst he was at Pathways, visiting him regularly, taking him out for morning teas and running him down to the golf club. Your friendship has been amazing.
Thank you all so much.
I look forward to seeing many of you at Northbridge on the 30th.

The Run : An assorted group of about 75 runners, walkers and stragglers assembled in the carpark; including Harriettes, Northern Beaches Wanderers, Larrikins and about 25 Poshmen. Bigamist, your hare, worked hard, he set the walkers and runners trails on his own ! These days it can take up to 3 hares to set a run.
The Gladesville Sports Club erected a special stone pedestal from which Bigamist lorded it over us and announced; he didn’t know how long the run was however walkers who walked the runners trail would take longer than the runners. So Profound.
Away we went : The runners went off to Field of Mars, then rejoined the walkers to trek through Burrows Park and plenty of local streets, see the maps for the fine details, the runners were back in about an hour, the walkers trail was about 3k which seemed just right for the night.
Starters included; Bumcrack, out and proud, Druid, Calicivirus, Your Choice, Duckweave, Flying Scotsman and 777.
The On On
The Club food was good, Steak special for $13 was hard to beat. Yackity beat it with his 5 ringed Brontosaurus steak. We shared our exclusive dining area with lots of other members, some of whom were very loud during the down downs, Can you believe the Hash would find other people noisy ! Its supposed to be the other way around
Smiley gave Down Downs to :
Lightning as stand-in hare as Bigamist had to leave early to rest.
Birthday Down Downs for
– Simmo who was awarded his OBE last Saturday.
(Over bloody eighty) and 47 years of hashing
– 777 who is a gold star committee man, and he organised the beer for his own down down
Peedub told a joke and Darwin Don provided a toe by toe description of the defecatory adventures of a 96 year old
