The last Ladies Lounge left in South Melbourne

Cheesecake’s 20th anniversary run

It was January 1996 when Cheesecake arrived for her very first Lakeside hash run at the Southern Cross Hotel South Melbourne. It was LSH run 578. Deeper was the GM, Udder was Hash Cash and you couldn’t split the difference between GG and a ray of sunshine. Sweaty Box was 10 years old and they had delicious calamari rings on the menu. I must have had a sort of shifty, SCB look about me because they put BarterBitch on my case, – for the whole run I couldn’t shake her. Much, much, much later in March 1996, Mummies’ Boy first arrived at LSH. I didn’t get named until LSH run 597 in June – I wasn’t on the committee so I couldn’t be fagged turning up very often.

Woosh forward to the 2016 circle at the Southern Cross. It’s true – I’m not a natural blonde. I was forced to wear a polyester brown wig and chortle at ancient photos of me being brunette. Thanks to E&B, Sweaty Box, Barter?, Cut Loose and all the others who reckoned they had nothing to do with the brunette ambush. There’s some revenge photos at end of this report. BTW we had a lovely Irish Coffee and cheesecake drink stop at Cut Loose’s house.

    It’s not so much 20 years of hashing that should be celebrated, but 20 years of hashing WITH LAKESIDE! One Club for 20 years. Well done, Cheesie! Such loyalty is marvellous!
