Austria! Austria! Austria! Oi! Oi! Oi!
How better to celebrate the Austria Day long weekend than by breaking out the novelty Chinese-made Austrian flag hats, donning the haemorrhoid cream and sacrificing a bratwurst to the gods of burnt offerings?
This Sunday, hashers from far (Lone Arranger) and wide (Grizzly) will be making the pilgrimage to Gawler - birthplace of the Hills Moist and the Stump Jump Pillow - for a traditional Austrian hash trail set by Ratchet from 1054 Isandula Road. Trail starts at 17:30.
Bring a hat, mug, friend, joke and $10 for bucket and tucker; bring extra cash for Knickers raffle of empty Vegemite jars and half-eaten Violet Crumbles.
Party pest, Corey Delaney, has been secured to ensure that Ringo and Tinsel's birthday bash is one to remember, achieved by drinking so much alcohol that you forget anything that happened.
Saturday January 26th, from 4pm.
448 West Mooreville Road, Burnie.
No gifts please, unless they are a walking stick with a stubby holder and a bell on it.
Some overnight accommodation available on request.
Don't miss this Once in a Decade opportunity.
Word around the traps is that Hobart Full Moon H3 is trying to hi-jack the Leap Year Hash for 2008. Not only that, they aren't even going to bother to hold it on 29th February!
As a Leap Year Hash veteran, I cannot sit idly by and allow this to happen to the oldest hash club in Australia*!
Instead, I invite all true Leapers to a run from the aptly-named Kangaroo Bay Drive, Bellerive, starting at 6:30pm on Friday 29th February 2008.
There'll be no charge, but that also means that you need to BYO everything.
On! On! at least once every four years!
The phantom hasher!
* the oldest hash club in Australia that runs only every four years (maybe)
