793 Nov 12, 2011 The Runaway Crew & Harold Mermaid Pools, Matura Robin Basant’s Ghost Writer

Line Break - On-On Feet

I got a call from the On-Sec saying Robin did not know he was supposed to write the trash. That kind of funny because I was right alongside Mahashma when he asked Robin to write the trash, and Robin smiled knodded and said yes. But there again the smile was kind of blank. So I am filling in and I propose Robin for Poofter.

This hash had the signature marks of Harold Lee. Thank God he was not combined with Mahashma. The run started late because of the late arrival of the Hash Master and his family. Harold started to talk about stage and I and II etc. This alone should have warned me to stay at the bar. There were many hares and Harold was the only experienced one. Yes I did say experienced, but in what.He is experienced on setting torture hashes, and this turned out to be no different.

Now all those virgin hares have got it into their heads that this is how to set a run.

The run itself can be described in a few words, mud, uphill, downhill, uphill, uphill, uphill, downhill, river, up, up, uphill, mud, darkness, long about 2 hrs. I think that sums it up.

Some intelligent hashers decided to quit after stage I, the less intelligent after stage II, and the morons like me did the whole thing.

When I got back it was very dark, but Seebalack’ s family rum shop was in full swing. His daughter-in-law needs to be taught how to pour a good size rum. I heard they have another rum shop in Chaguanas somewhere.

The down downs were officiated by the Hash Ass who had trouble in controlling the rowdy mob. It is hard to control a drunken mob.

But still the spirit of the hash lives on, the pain of the hash is soon forgotten and a good time was had by all.

I do suggest for the benefit of all that Harold and Arthur be banned for setting future runs.

Making a mad dash from my PJ which ended @ 2 in Couva, my average speed was 130km/hr, with an ETA of 20mins to Grand Bazaar where I met up with Dane to carpool to the alt run hash. Traffic Saturday (as he branded it) created several moments of uncertainty in getting to the hash ‘on time’. We eventually gave up, changed our minds and headed On Back before we even made it to On On. Then we decided to make the trip to the run site (Darin’s Bar) after all….even if just for the After Lime and Down Downs. Surprisingly, after some skillful negotiation around the ‘traffic epidemic’ we arrived and notice just about 6 hashers outside the bar. We conquered the poor parking and eventually found a safe spot on a side street (littered with shredded white paper). Hmmmm!!

On arriving @ the bar we realized two things. 1. The hash did not yet start @ 3:45. 2. We could count all hashers present on two hands. We started off on time (trini time that is) as the hares waited on at least 12 hashers to arrive! ALL 12, yes I said 12! and one extra (Richard who came later than late) and we were On On @ 4pm. The hash started as typically as you could imagine with a nice fresh uphill to get the blood pumping.. which would shortly after reveal NOT an X but a ‘back check’. Those of you who doubted that David was a good guy were within reasonable doubt… He’s a good guy and a viciously tough Hare!!

We then continued on what seemed to be a road run, up and down on the pavement, stupid of us to think that a road run was all it was going to be. After about 30 mins, we ran down the side of a drain and ventured into the forest. We then embarked on an uphill trek that lasted in my estimation close to 45 mins! We passed some interesting things along the way…water formations made by mini waterfalls cascading along limestone rocks, beautiful ferns that were so perfect they looked artificial, a bat cave furnished with stalactites, and of course plenty mud and plenty picker. On one of my downhill slides I encountered a strange furry picker that made my palms look like that of a hairy werewolf (it really itched though – but was relievingly easy to remove in water). We then reached a clearing and saw a magnificent rock formation comparable to a pregnant belly on a giant; water dribbled down the ‘belly’ and almost at the base was channeled through pvc pipes providing an ice cold shower for a dirty dozen hashers (yes, Richard left and later returned for the down downs). After the refreshing splash, we resurrected to the main road and then on the road again. A few moments later we were running along the Diego Martin Highway, soaking wet and screaming On On! Cars passed by honking us as they shouted inaudibles our way. Almost to the end of this two hour ordeal and on the verge of exhaustion, David finally ‘announced’ the On In (which we never got to). The run was fully interactive – under, over, around and through, up, down, up, up, up, and up some more!! and David said there were parts we never got to!! For the most part, we kept a nice tight pack as we all reassembled two hours later @ Marlon’s van for the down downs. Our exiled poofter Richard never downed his beer and did not kneel on request.

Great job David and plenty props to our MVP village hare Brendan for his true hasher spirit (he ran that course 3 times that day!!)  On On!!

Mahashma's Meditations

The moving finger writes

My year of Hash Master is coming to a close and while you read this, it will be my last down down as Poignant Hash Master. moment, tears anyone,………….. No, well in that case I will just carry on.

The Hash Christmas run will be from Stumblin Bar, Ariapita Avenue at 3:30 p.m. It will be a live run so come with your Santa Hats etc. etc. If you are drinking there will be a cover charge of $40.00 for the kitty.

Afterwards all those with Christmas Tickets will proceed to 181 Windsor Road GoodWood Park for the all inclusive party, and the handing over ceremony to the new Hash Master. Tickets can be purchased from Taz or myself and regular hashers will get preference.

Purchase your tickets soon because they are limited in number.

I strongly suggest car pooling as parking is tight. Cars will park along Morne Coco Road and the lower part of Windsor Drive. Security will be provided.

The Poofter Award went to a traitor and a Guyana Government spy Audrey. I have long been suspicious of her trips to Guyana and I even went on one just to keep an eye on her but she lost me in Georgetown. Her true colours came out when she routed for the only Guyanese on the Hash and she secretly supported the Guyana football team that eliminated T&T in the world cup qualifier. No spy is safe on the Hash, I have my eye on you too Uncle Ray.

Well On On see you all at the Christmas Party.

Hash Lingo

Virgins take note of the meaning of these signs!!!

  1. While on the trail CALL “ON ON” when you see bits of shredded paper/flour! It helps those behind/possibly lost hashers.
  2. “O” – check for the correct trail!
  3. “X” – you’re on the wrong trail! Go back to the check point and start again.
  4. “ON PASS” – to pass someone on the trail.
  5. “ON BACK” – on the wrong trail, you may have reached an “X“….turn back to the check point “O“.
  6. “On OFF” – you’re off the correct trail.
  7. When you are almost in you would see: “ON IN” pointing to the correct direction.
  8. For those who can’t keep up with the ‘3F’s’ (FIT, FAST AND FURIOUS) pack then just go with the ‘3S’s’ (SMART, SLOW AND SAFE) Pack who just let them do all the work.

791 Oct 28, 2011 Bimbos Goldsborough, Tobago The Organ

Line Break - On-On Feet

I am the Organ. I have a mind of my own inside of a thick long body and I rule my Master’s brain. On the Hash runs I caused his mind to wonder and lust after all the female forms, causing him to stumble and fall at times. I am sorry I caused him to fall on glass.

You might recognize my Master if you try, he has bulging eyes (caused by me) and disoriented in appearance.
My Master was told to write a trash about the Bimbos’ run but because I sometimes give him little sleep he is having difficulty remembering anything about the run. Hello Master you can write now!

The Master
Oh yes, um, where were my thoughts, oh yes the run.
There was some controversy about this run and it started with some conflicts between the Big Dicks and the Bimbos. The Big Dicks said they are setting the run, no replied the Bimbos we are, we booked it first with Mahashma. So done the Big Dicks with their miniscule brains decided to boycott the runs and pull out. The Bimbos set better runs anyway.

When setting a run in Tobago, who better to get advice from than Mark Puddy, who has lived in Tobago for many years. So along with Puddy the Bimbos found some beautiful countryside to run in. The run was well set and a lot of work must have been done to set it so well. I understand many wreckies were done to make sure it was good enough for our foreign guests from Suriname and Barbados.

It rained a little but that made no difference to the beauty of the run. The parking site for the buses was a bit tight and on the ride in I was getting rather concerned for the bus driver and his brand new bus. How the hell is he going to turn around I thought.

The run itself started along a tight trail but it soon opened up so there was plenty of running, a lot of it in some swollen river beds, some hills not so steep, and scattered with a liberal amount of watery cow shit. After the run at the down downs the cow shit added a distinct flavour to the beer for those with new shoes. The whole Seebalack family had new shoes for the occasion it seems.

The down downs were short because the Hash Master wanted the lime moved to Pigeon Point. At Pigeon Point the liming and drinking continued. Everyone was having a great time in and out of the water.

Well done Bimbos! The first day was fantastic. Back to the Organ.

The Organ
It seems to me that the Suriname posse left their young mobile women behind for fear of Trini men like Victor, Peter, Harold , Zam and Enrique. I don’t blame them.

SCRIBE: “Long Time” Hasher
Hash Event: Karaoke Night
DATE: 28th October, 2011

Browsing through the song lists before the Karaoke night,   HM   Mahashma approached me to scribe the event.  An offer I could not refuse… or could I? Well, obviously I didn’t!  Lots of Hashers browsing through the lists, who was going to attempt to sing what? Taz buzzing around, taking notes of song requests. What possessed me to put in my request for a song? I will never know!! Told that I was on first after the MC. Tried to talk to MC but he said the order already in the computer, can’t change it!!

So the evening started with a non Karaoke guest appearance by Cyril giving his calypso rendition “ The Greatest Hash of All” to a backing track. Was he miming too? Having heard the song already on the bus that day from the hash, I realized that maybe he was given a recording contract by the bus driver who was playing back in times Calypsoes all the way to and from the hash. Our overseas Hasher guests seemed to enjoy his rendition and sang along and laughed at the right moments.

Next and first in the Karaoke was MC Martin with a rendition of Sparrows “Congo man” An enjoyable rendition where he continued telling his lies! Hey Jude followed sung in such a beautiful manner that had the crowd crying out for more, or were they just screaming in agony! Well my mother told me I had a beautiful voice!!.

So the trend was set for a fun night of singing, sometimes in tune sometimes not, some good, some not!! A mix well appreciated by the audience. Asha sang “Stand by your Man” with Dave standing by bemused and amused! Bajan HM Francine sang a duet with her husband “From this Moment” which could have been their wedding song. HM Mahashma came on and after saying he lost 2 children from his house this year gave a rendition of “Love and Marriage” in a very Frank Sinatra like style. The Bajan contingent attempted a couple of songs, but they either couldn’t read the words, or hear the music, or both, as they were jeered off stage!! MC Martin appealed for calm as missiles started flying! Things settled down quickly with no need for Susan to call the police!! The Prick- ah- posse sang a couple of Machel numbers, Teeza, a hippy rendition of Hotel California, and some girls wanted to have fun. The Bajan bride of Frankenstein sang a great rendition of 4 Non Blondes “What’s going on”. Ashe got up and sang a lovesong for Taz that was so out of tune that I could not recognize the song!! Apparently it didn’t work as he appeared very pained on the hash the next day, saying that she fell asleep!!

The best came close to the end of the night when “the Real Slim Shady” aka Harold’s son, Leeum, stood up. Betty got up with Christine and brought the house down with “I will survive”!!. Singing and dancing on the tables. This was a great fun night, well appreciated by all.

792 Oct 29, 2011 Prick-A-Posse Englishman’s Bay, Tobago Long Time Hasher

So the next day dawned and on on to our second run set at Englishman’s Bay by the “Prick- ah- Posse” Buses set off at 9:30 a.m. to head off for the 75min. drive to the run site. Back in times Calypso playing in the bus and a happy, expectant set of Hashers anticipating the upcoming run. It was a long and winding road (Karaoke again?!) and at the top of a hill we saw an “On In” on the roadside. “Nah can’t be “were the exclamations from the bus, as we went down and uphill for the next 2 miles before turning into the runsite at Englishman’s Bay. Seasoned Hashers realized that this was a decoy, as there was no paper or flour, before or after the “On In” sign!!

Well, I doubt a much more idyllic setting could have been found. A beautiful beach and bay confronted us. Only obvious issue, the lack of flat hashing terrain surrounding the run site. But more on that to follow!! We were called to order by HM Mahashma, for the usual pre-hash preamble. Except this was one with a special emphasis on keeping to the trail, and using the guide ropes to help when necessary, watching out for falling rocks. Well these were adequate warnings already about what was to come!!

So, on on up the road out of the beach, past a sign saying “no squatting” with Dookie squatting aside with his pants down beckoning to the ladies. On across the road and up a track past the Englishman’s  Bay security post, with Suzuki jeep, windows down and door unlocked (guess the area was safe!!).Up this track we headed past lots of side roads named Misty Ridge or other very lyrical names, and up and up we went. After 15 minutes of climb we came to a check. Hashers checked to the left, right up and down, all false trails. A Hare appeared and directed us all back downhill the way we came. Lots of mutterings followed, Wilko from Suriname accusing the Hares of laying the trail by truck, all of which vehemently denied by the Hares. On down we came to a truck with beers and water, greatly appreciated by Hashers after that climb in the near midday sun. And then it was on right into the bush for the first precipitous climb. The first rope was encountered here also to help us up the slippery slope. Up we slid and after a few minutes reached a summit where we continued on and then down into a beautiful river. We checked and waded upstream, then back and followed the trail downstream. Up out the river  and up another precipitous trail with rope to help . Many Hashers at this time were probably thinking of better things to do with rope and Hares!! “Dat is gevaarlijk” cried the Suriname Hashers. “oh Gord this is Shiite” cried the Bajan Hasher!! So eventually back down into the river and more checking and out onto a road. We came across a small waterfall at this stage, and many Hashers called it quits at this stage and headed down the road back to the run site on the beach.
The next trail was found up the road to the left, more climbing and into another river. We ran towards the sea with the sound of waves ahead, and then surprise, surprise up another hill away from the pounding surf. Another precipitous climb awaited! 15 minutes later we arrived on the road and the on-in back to the beach. About 1hr 40 mins of “running” a Hasher with GPS saying only 2 miles of distance. I think that must have been 1 mile up and 1 mile down!! A Challenging run in difficult terrain, very well set by the Hares, Thanks to the “Prick-a-Posse”

After hash activities got underway slowly, with the tired and dazed, nursing their wounds with draft Carib and Stag. Food was delivered by Alan and Michelle. Note was taken of the extra large box of meat Alan was eating. Favoritism for the Poofter !! The world now certainly seemed a better place after a few glasses of Stag, and food eaten!! The Sea beckoned and then the down –downs started. So Poofter award went to Alan for the extra large food box. A Suriname Hasher got her Poofter award for falling and losing all the contents of the bag (Gucci) she was carrying. It was very amusing watching her drink the down-down from the well endowed cup, making sure that her lips did not touch the “spout” of the cup!!

We left the run site at 3:30 p.m. to give us enough time to prepare for the “Monster Hash Halloween Bash”
Back at Johnstons, preparations started for the party. Decorations hung from trees, candles and lights added for atmosphere, venue all set for the upcoming festivities. After dinner (food ran out!! Didn’t get food L) the party was set to start. Hashers went back and changed into their fancy dress costumes.

The party started with a parade of costumes in front the judges. A motley crew of Dracula’s, quasimodas, Morticias, Devils,  Zorro’s?, Doctors, police lady with Velvet Handcuffs (very arresting for Numbnuts), Amy Whinehouse, Bride of Frankenstein, Divers,  Rastamen , Miss Suriname 1969,  John and Lorena Bobbit with very graphic  props(on their honeymoon!!) and super heroes.

The top 5 were chosen “The Dark Side of Mahashma, “ “ Morticia”, “Amy Whinehouse”., “The Bride of Frankenstein” and “John and  Lorena Bobbit”. Well the crowd decided on “The Bride of Frankenstein” and she expressionlessly accepted her prizes, courtesy Monster energy drinks. So the party now start.

Drinks flowed, and the Bajan Hashers did a dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Birthdays were celebrated with cakes. Arlene, Christine and another. Music was great thanks to Mr. DJ, and everyone having a good time playing their characters. Morticia did not smile for the night, and  Mahashma wondered around seeking enlightenment. Michelle came out with some big boobs, to rival Miss Suriname 1969 (pity Betty had to leave before the party, would have been interesting to see how they would have looked on her!!). Alan appeared in a Superhero costume with chest plate and Fingernails, both he and Michelle made a great couple for the night. Harper boy was promoting diplomatic relations with a Suriname Ambassadress, and Dookie actually looked better in costume dressed as a surgeon with facemask obscuring his face!! Some Hashers did not need fancy dress! Randall was dressed for the run he had to set the following morning! Enrique hovered around as a lurch .  Taz as nursemaid and Ashe as Baby in Diaper made for another interesting couple!

At 2:00A.M. Mahashma appeared to tell me that he had finally found “enlightenment”. “Women good Man Bad” was his revelation. What more was there to say?!! As the party wound down at 3:00A.M. all I could say was roll on next year!!

Line Break - On-On Feet

Mahashma's Meditations

The moving finger writes:
There really is nothing more I can say about our Tobago weekend. It has been said already by all who attended and I am more than happy by what I have heard.

The spirit of the Hash is such that when things go wrong like on the Thursday night (Richards BBQ) we all pitched and made the best of it, move on and forget. All is forgiven Richard. We will give you another chance to redeem yourself. Even the professional caterers got it wrong twice running out of food on both nights. Well, we set the record for drinks with a total bar bill of over $33,000.00. I never realized Hashers could drink so much. 

I am almost enlightened and I will reveal it at the Christmas party when I hand over the reins to Taz.
The Poofter nominations on the second run went to Michelle yet again and was well deserved. Michelle ordered an extra special lunch box for Alan complete with blue steak, sushi and truffles. The box was accidentally discovered by Taz.

It is my belief Michelle has worn the Poofter shirt more times than anyone else.

The moving finger writes,
And having writ stops.
