The WOEFULL had a hash on a rare Monday in April. Partially due to the Worm getting side-swiped by an anti-eco warrior. The next day, his able-bodied partner, Bird Table was somehow injured. We suspect that it was due to The Worm's bandages but have no evidence to go on.
Our next blue moon month isn't until November of next year. Members of the WOEFULL get to add a blue patch to their shirt if they make it to both runs for any month that has two full moons. We get a white patch sewn on for every 13 runs.
March 16-17 - Mr Magoo's fishing weekend was probably a bit more subdued than usual. Us 4 Mooloo hussies being the only ones to catch any fish was probably not helpful to lifting morale after Chopper's passing. But we had a great time and we did share our kahawai leftovers with Sir Cream A Lot!

SOUTHERN FLYERS - INVERCARGILL
Riverton Run from Brewer - We had a Hash walk, grogs etc at our holiday home at Riverton Rocks on Sunday, 24 March. We do this annually in February/March and Sirloin spotted it on our Facebook page. As it was Otago anniversary day on the Monday he, Lippy and Shorty came down in their bus and stayed the night at Riverton. Another two Dunedin hashers also came for the afternoon (their names elude me at the moment). All up we had just on 20 there, good food, drinks and fun – including a swim in the sea over the road from the house for about five!!! Finally ended about 10 pm with a couple of our hashers helping Sirloin finish a bottle of whiskey in his bus. All in all a great day! Only loose plans at this stage but it is likely we will meet the Dunedin hashers somewhere half way between Invercargill and Dunedin later in the year for a night.

Good trip over with observations about the amount of scree on the mountains. Much more erosion than I remember!! Bloody traffic lights each side of Arthurs and then a detour on gravel after Brunner. However, the highlight there was the Jack Hill school miniature bungalow built by students (young) in the 1930’s rather than them just doing the three R’s.
A trooper of an evening preceded by a cook up for self, Triple S, RLD and cuddles on the famous Dagy Webber. A night of playing and singing and drinking on the balcony of the Hilton with no one feeling any pain (apart from when I tried to sing)
Saturday morning and a race up to the community hall to meet Ivan the Mancunian, fresh off his bike. (You had to be there….why were you not???) Cooked up a storm with Knackers then cleaned up and a live hare (Dingaling) dishing out a good run although second half predictable once we started. (According to The Missing Linc)
Sat avo and a shower followed by a good session of music with Bolyx, Vomi, self and Tucker Fucker. Joined later by FFFFF on the vocals. A raucous end before dinner and then a waddle down to the club for the evening and dancing to a not bad rock band.
Breaky Sun and a repeat of Sat morn before a wee walk, circle and fare thee wells.
A top weekend! Thanks to Wee Knackers and philup, Ding and STD for doing the money and patches.
