The weekend began in great fashion with a crew of hardened Hashers visiting the Raglan Club/ RSA for a Friday night meal and catch up, with a few watching the rugby on the big screen. Sadly the weather changed for the worse with strong winds and heavy rain. Trail masters Loud and Macwatt had their work cut out setting the trail between scattered showers and horizontal winds. The weather eased early afternoon and the forty strong group hit the trail ....the trail wound along boardwalks on the Eastern side to the historic wharf area ...then a “few” dreaded steps up to a great outlook over Raglan harbour. Then a short bush track and up and over to the western side of the harbour.This led to an awesome bush track along the estuary. Loud was there for the first hydration break ...this was special with a great variety of beverages kindly donated by him. This was also the split for the short walk, while the runners and keen walkers wound their way around the picturesque estuary back to the P.S - around 8 km in total.
We were fortunate that our NZ GM was present and he conducted the usual uncontrollable fine session.
The great facility at the Raglan Holiday Park allowed all to slip off for hot showers etc in preparation for the Food and the “Silly Hat Theme” evening.
An awesome time was had by all ...great food with some highly coveted prizes -blue tooth speaker, knives very kindly donated Holmes Industrial Supplies Tradezone (Muff Diver). These were well appreciated....thanks Muffy.
A big thank you to all that helped, especially Bustits and Couldn’t Cum. Rumour has it that Ducph was an early riser and did a big early morning cleanup.
All in all a great weekend.
