Line Break - On-On Feet

‘When Ah was young, Ah never needed anyone
and making love was just fuh fun, those days are done…
Doh Wanna Be All By Muhself! Doh wanna bee ‘

Arriving 30 minutes after de pack has gone gives one time fuh introspection. It’s amazing de things yuh mind can conjure.
“Doh worry tuh try it” quote Arlene & Asha & somebody else (Ah forget who) coming back from ah trail walk “Dey left before we started to walk 20 minutes ago. Dey said de forest real dense, dangerous, and perilous even, and dat everyone should stay with de pack, dat it was plenty false trails and if anyone gets lost dey won’t be able tuh find them, plus yuh might get swallowed in de swamp. Yuh crazy, yuh too late!”

Abnormally for muh tuh be in de company of a dubious sophomore virgin bimbo wannabe who emphasized and regurgitated dat hysteria above and dat of course made the challenge irresistible tuh muh chest hair…
“Which direction dey went?”
“Into de bush” quote A & A etal pointing.

Yuh can conjure it, off Ah went dragging de sophomore along; but dat didn’t last as she turned back at de first puddle o’ mud, quoting “Wen dey get back ah go send dem to get yuh”, “Ah fraid snakes”
‘All by muhself, doh wanna bee’ singing, ah hear, can have ah calming effect, even if silently, in counterpoint tuh de raucous chilling call of de cicadas’ dat ah knew were just 2 inch sized males desperate tuh mate… hmmm… remind yuh of anyone.
‘Doh wanna bee’, getting tuh any Ex.’s ah thought. Ah turning back sure. Lo and behold next thing ah see in yuh mammy derriere ah – X. Ah long uphill !#&! one, dat from de well trodden trail up tuh it caught most ah de pack. But de check wasn’t broken so dey didn’t back track dat far. So golly, dis is de ‘go-no go’ point …and who likes humble pie? ‘Doh wanna bee’ Darn it! In haste ah forget de ‘OFF’ and all kinda thing stinging.

‘Doh wanna be’ Having yuh first encounter with tropical swamp tree roots by tripping head first into freshly muddied thigh-deep water. Nah use trying tuh find ah safe clean way through. De Mahatma’s photo was worth a thousand spills. Buh de swamp trees are magnificent, snake-like roots and all. OMG! De pack went thru here?!! Well ah better ‘man-up’ and like Mags said later quote “Run like ah beast”

‘Doh wanna be’ shouting “How R Uuuu…?” and hearing it go on forever… like dropping a pebble into a hole tuh test de depth and hearing … silence. Doh wanna be, quote “having tuh fish around in de swamp tuh retrieve yuh shoes sucked in by de mud” well conjure dat. Doh wanna be de person dropping ah empty Blue Waters bottle fuh muh tuh clean up… Or de cap ah mile further down trail, quote Crystal “De cap drop in de water how yuh expect muh tuh find dat?” Ah dunno “Wait fuh it tuh float ashore… “

Doh wanna be ungrateful fuh Nitin’s new bride who so slow enough tuh allow muh catch-up tuh ah friendly face, and tuh Richard a comforting sight sweeping up the back pack and, after much convincing, not allowing muh tuh do de river loop. (Betcha-by-golly-wow! we went thru de swamp!!!) Doh wanna be seeing anymore water on de hash for awhile, river, sea, any kind.
Doh wanna be, de ninny who read de ONIN as de NINO and lead de pack back down de trail, de wrong way. Doh wanna be, convincing de lady complaining not impressed by muh assertion dat quote “mud is good if yuh embrace it, like snow”
Doh wanna be, partying all night, in de middle of nowhere since de Hash acquired a spanking new power supply dat allows us tuh down-down ’til morning come… Thanks FT Farfan. Doh wanna be numbnuts in ah birthday suit, or harper in ah candle hat, or nitin in lingerie… Doh wanna be, eating peleau peleau peleau all de time; wah bout sum Dumpling? Saltfish? Bhaggi? Bygone? Dhal? Oildown? De burger-man even? Doh wanna be like, tuh quote de caterer girl “De mistah fall splat! On he arse, but he hold on tuh he food”

Doh wanna be partying at de ‘Check Out Bar’ and hearing bout ah overseas hash clash boycott. Like Jimmy Adams said about WI cricket, quote “you support whoever is in de position” Doh wanna be letting Hayden, or Salma, put de pepper on yuh chicken. Doh wanna be de Check Out Bar’s Angel Gabriel sprinting with ah Harp and biting dust… “if yuh weren’t dere – yuh real miss out.” ON ON!

806 April 28, 2012 Nevie, Dookie, Pinny, Reina, Toni, Sandy? Local Hares Flanagin Town Judas B L

Line Break - On-On Feet

Hashing . . . it’s a mixture of athleticism and sociability, hedonism and hard work, a refreshing escape from the nine-to-five dweebs you’re stuck with five days a week. Hashing is an exhilaratingly fun combination of running, orienteering, and partying, where bands of harriers and harriettes chase hares on eight-to-ten kilometer-long trails through town, country, and desert, all in search of exercise, camaraderie, and good times.

Hashing began in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1938, when a group of British colonial officials and expatriates founded a running club called the Hash House Harriers. They named the group after their meeting place, the Selangor Club, nicknamed the “Hash House.” Hash House Harrier runs were patterned after the traditional British paper chase. A “hare” was given a head start to blaze a trail, marking his devious way with shreds of paper, all the while pursued by a shouting pack of “harriers.” Only the hare knew where he was going . . . the harriers followed his clues to stay on trail. Apart from the excitement of chasing the hare and solving the clues, reaching the end was its own reward . . . for there, thirsty harriers would find a tub of iced-down beer.

Hashing died out during World War II (Japanese occupying forces being notoriously anti-fun) but picked up in the post-war years, spreading through the Far East, Australia, and New Zealand . . . then exploding in popularity in the mid-70s. Today there are thousands of Hash House Harrier clubs in all parts of the world, with newsletters, directories, and even regional and world hashing conventions.

Hashing hasn’t strayed far from its Kuala Lumpur roots. A typical hash today is a loosely-organized group of 20-40 men and women who meet weekly or biweekly to chase the hare. We follow chalk, flour, or paper, and the trails are never boring . . . we run streets and back alleyways, but we also ford streams, climb fences, explore storm drains, and scale cliffs. And although some of today’s health-conscious hashers may shun cold beer in favor of water or diet sodas, trail’s end is still a celebration and a party.

Most hash events end with a group gathering known as the “Circle”, or less commonly as “Religion”. Led by chapter leadership, the Circle provides a time to socialize, sing drinking songs, recognize individuals, formally name members, or inform the group of pertinent news or upcoming events. Circles may be led by the Chapter Grandmaster, the group’s Religious Adviser, or by a committee.

A “down-down” is a means of punishing, rewarding, or merely recognizing an individual for any action or behaviour according to the customs or whims of the group. Generally, the individual in

question is asked to consume without pause the contents of his or her drinking vessel or risk pouring the remaining contents on his or her head. Individuals may be recognized for outstanding service, or for their status as a visitor or newcomer. Down-Downs also serve as punishment for misdemeanours real, imagined, or blatantly made up. Such transgressions may include: failing to stop at the beer check, pointing with a finger, or the use of real names. Commonly, hashers who wear new shoes to an event can be required to drink from that shoe.

Many chapters include an ice seat or throne as part of the down-down ceremony. Those who are to consume a down-down sit on a large block of ice while they await the completion of the down-down song. If the offence that resulted in the down-down is particularly egregious, the hasher may be subjected to a long song with many verses.

There I was, the exercise part of the proceedings completed, in search of camaraderie and good times when I was approached by the Ass HM, with a look of “if you pay me enough you can get away” on his face saying “You write the trash”. The HM and a few of the chosen were away on some Hash jaunt. Those of us who could not afford to travel were stuck here in Flanagin Town with the Three Stooges, Pinny, Dookie and Nevie. Luckily for us, there was an array of wives and girlfriends, even a psychiatrist, to add sanity and stability to the run.

The first challenge, other than the Hares, was the parking, with Nevie exclaiming “allyuh come too early”. I wasn’t sure if that meant if we came later, the parking would be better and more abundant. After Alastair buss up the tiles in the church driveway, we moved out further down the road, out of the way of the fire and brimstone. Backup even run a line to show that he wasn’t inside the church boundary. Ossifer, O gawd.

After leaving town in the rain, the blistering sun was upon us. The Ass HM called the gathering together and the Hares were introduced, even doggy hare 1,2,3,4 and 5. He made the mistake of letting Nevie give the preamble. Halfway into the run, Nevie was still giving the preamble. The runsite we gathered at was the home of Mr Guiseppi, who was being honoured that day, by the church, for attaing the ripe old age of 80. Later that evening, I would see Mr. Guiseppi returning from the church clutching a box of Johnny. Now, that is d kinda church I want to join!

The trail set off down the road, it was either down the road or up the road. We chose down the road. After two obvious wrong trails, we headed into the bush. The terrain remained similar for most of the run, crossing dry ravines every so often and coming out onto a road or wide open trail. It was basically uphill, downhill, not very original but challenging enough to make it worthwhile. At one point, this had to be the pinnacle, we were treated to some spectacular views. One or two of the ladies were having panic attacks and calling for oxygen. Kim Possible was seen scribbling her last will and testament on a piece of tissue paper. After she emerged about 40 minutes later, barely able to walk, O-Zama was heard mumbling to himself “shucks, it didn’t work”.

Back at the runsite, the beers were cold and the women warm, or was it the other way around. Able bodied Andre was happy to oblige our thirsts. The Ass HM called for the down-downs, hares, virgins….which there were quite a few, a couple new shoes. Poofter nominees, Curtis and Shawna, who are now regular nominees for poofter, Kim Possible, for trying to stay alive with some medical device, Matthew and Rebecca, Matthew went all the way to F T and opted out of the run to buss a track on Rebecca. He really take after his father. You check Nuts and Nesia recently? Like they always in heat….get a room…get a room! The poofter went to Matthew.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, there were a couple birthday celebrations, Wild Woman, Drewmeister and champagne was flowing like water among the cliques. The Guiseppi party was now starting to get going. As the designated driver, I was only allowed 5 more beers. A quick pit stop at Sandeanas with Uncle Bernie, Jimboots and the rest of the posse capped off the evening. ON ON to Vega de O!

Line Break - On-On Feet

Oh what a great time was had by the travelling contingent of POSH3 hashers who participated in the Inter-Caribbean Hash in Grenada. The event was visited by no fewer than 16 countries, though most external to the Caribbean. Our daily bus transport was clearly indicative of the mix, comprising our friends from Germany, Canada, Sweden, USA UK, & 1 Bajan fella. The event was well organized with very good runs, running terrains, food, drinks, food, & more food. Good food that is! We may have done a bit more eating at the run sites than anything else. I’d say the Lambie Waters on Hog Island on the second day took the ‘cake’, but what say for the various mouth-watering dishes at the run sites. Oil down galore, manicou, goat, bar-b-que, steam fish, fried fish, baked fish – true Caribbean flavor!

A run across the causeway at Woburn taking you onto Hog Island started my weekend. This was a 3:00pm run in the hot, hot sun. The parched environment provided no ease early on the run, but soon the temperature relaxed once we got to the mangrove vegetation along the beachfront. Excellent running, save for the heat, and excellent views of the Woburn bay while crossing the causeway. This run culminated in a 4-hour beer stop on Hog Island – something only a hasher of the traditional variety will find accommodating. Talk ’bout fete! – The Trinis wine down the little island – to the accompaniment of the live band (generator in tow) – live Trini soca in ‘no shortage’. Pressure to make it back across to the run site – most hashers clearly lubricated & happy!

Some food, more drinks, a next live band, and the party continued after the run at the marina. Some hashers ready to leave, some not at all! Well done.

Annandale would form the location for the next run – an advertised rum shop crawl. The run started off as any other in Grenada – up a mountain, across the mountain, up again then down – some genuine hashing territory, bush, mud & taking us by the famous Annandale falls. Some 35-40minutes later, out onto the street & back in the village, and greeted by a series of rum shops along the way – with hashers, or as one bar’s signage “Harshers”, invited to stop at they feel. I counted some five bar stops on the way, too frequent to have a beer at each, after a slightly testing run. No On-In here – a true rum shop crawl – just make your way up then down the hill back to the start – Mark’s Sports Bar.

Again we were treated to a very wide selection of food items to fill your plate, for one price. Me, I eat a plate and carry a box back to the hotel! Well if Hog Island was the appetizer, Annandale was the main course – nice party vibes. The rain had over a hundred of so hashers squished in a small area, and is party – everybody shaking a leg…man wining on woman, and you know the rest! Sorry to tear ourselves away from this scene, but more to do.

Saturday’s run could not have been more aptly placed. An hour or so away from Grand Anse would bring us to Resource village, up in the hills, overlooking most of the East coast from the North. A resplendent site!…though an omen to the type of terrain or the difficulty that would greet us. I would easily say close to 200 hashers spread across the site, each having to elect the hash run most suitable to their level of fitness. What say you? – from Slow Walkers trail (30 minutes) to Iron Man (170 minutes) – is your choice – cyar say anybody in Grenada try to kill any hasher. Four of us opted for the Iron Man, with three finishing well within the estimated time. A very testing run the Iron Man, though the terrain was well adapted to most of the other selections. Very good organization of the trails, with clear signage and intersecting paths. The underfoot was slow & achingly technical, with mostly narrow, stony paths, generous portions of mud, and never-ending ascents.

The tiresome run was soothed by a good choice of food, and of course ample beers to relax the mood. Some Trinis set up their own cocktail bar, providing free Tequila & rum shots for the willing hasher. A great site, very challenging run, followed by good food and liming – we couldn’t ask for more. The price of the run was telling, since no Trini made it back out the hotel that night for any On-On-On.

Sunday – the final day – a live beach run on the beautiful Magazine Beach, only 15 minutes away from our hotel. A great site, but daunting to set off running at 2:20pm on a Sunday afternoon to catch two hares. An age old ruse by one hare had the entire pack reversing their direction after only a few minutes. The run took us by and along the airport runway, through some nice terrain around the area. A left at the tethered cow took us on a path back to the beach and the On-In. A pacy run, some 30 odd minutes for the FRBs.

The after lime was no cool-down for the weekend festivities. It was lively, with live band, and DJ, a live comedian, and an encore performance from our own Mystery. It would seem that the Saturday night performance at the hash site was not enough for our guests. The closing ceremony was in true hasher style, with no let up of drunken tributes, naming ceremonies, rebukes and down-downs.

All in all, a great weekend, with too numerous events to recall. I am glad to have been a part of it. Thanks to our POSH3 contingent who made the event so much more enjoyable for all.

From the Office of the Iron Lady

A woman can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens. She smiles when she feels like screaming, and she sings/dances when she feels like crying. She cries when she’s happy and laughs when she’s afraid. Her love is unconditional. There’s only one thing wrong with her. She forgets what she’s worth! Ladies you are beautiful and unique. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Virgins: Kevin, Phil, Josie, Cherry-Ann, Carl

New Shoes: Josie, Kevin and Sanjay

Happy Birthday: Jasmin, Nevie, Sandra and Nick

Poofter: Mark (numbnuts son) his father brought him to hash but when he heard Rebecca (Alan & Michelle’s daughter) was not running he didn’t run either he stayed with her.

Line Break - On-On Feet

As if the Gods were conspiring to keep the faithful supporters and a few cabinet members away from the forthnighly meeting with our beloved Ironing Lady, there was an impressive halo around the sun which panicked many to believe that this was surely a sign that the world was about to end. In fact most of us believe that a Mountain Goats run set by Doon and company usually means the end of the world for us hashers since he is known to set some ballbusters on the North Coast, and this was to be no exception. For those of you interested in knowing, a halo is caused by the sun’s rays refracting off ice crystals in the upper atmosphere resulting in a circular rainbow effect around the sun. Yes, we do have ice crystals in hot Trinidad at 22,000 feet and No, it wasn’t because a comet hit the sun releasing gases into space or a precursor for the Mayan end time prediction; or so we hope!

So there we were gathered in the constituency of Blanchisseusse on the banks of the beautiful Yarra River which we have trekked by several times before, to listen to the opening remarks from the Iron Lady who successfully defeated a No Confidence motion several weeks ago. So buoyed by this victory and the prospects of another overseas trip coming up soon, we strutted off like loyal lemmings behind the Iron Lady following Doon, Lisa and a half dozen other virgin hares.

Now that the Minister of Works finally got back the PURE project, it appeared that the first 20 minutes of the proceedings were designed to review the state of the roadway, bridges and drains in the constituency because there was no other reason for us spending so much bloody time on the road! Eventually after about a dozen long mother arse false trails, we ventured into the forest and soon enough after another half dozen long false trails, we started climbing one long bloody hill that seemed to h ave no summit. We just kept climbing and climbing for about half an hour then finally we reached the top. These fricking Mountain Goats lived up to their name. So then it was downhill, literally from here to a smaller river that led to the bigger Yarra River where the hares redeemed themselves somewhat by providing refreshments to the weary and thirsty hashers. Then to the ON-IN which ended by a lovely pool in the river where we waited for the day’s proceedings to be concluded by the Iron Lady.

While the crowd gathered waiting for the last of the runners to return, there was much talk about the happenings in Mayaro and the damage done to an innocent bottle of rum, a casualty of love! There was talk about the cricket match between the Aussies and WI in the Oval and who was going to the Trini Posse lime. More rumours and gossip about who was missing in action and why, etc. So the Iron Lady called the meeting to order, thanked the hares for a "so-so" run, introduced the virgins (there were quite a few) and then gave poofter to the hasher who offended the most. We got to find out who wears the pants and who does the ironing in the official residence of the HM. Finally there was a long diatribe from Harper about how he tried in vain to save an innocent bottle of rum in Mayaro. At the appointed time the meeting was re-adjourned at Uncle Sam’s bar where a few die-hard supporters continued to eat, drink and shit talk while the DJ played some 50s love songs no doubt rightly judging the ages of his audience.

Line Break - On-On Feet

From the Office of the Iron Lady

As I was driven into to the run site of Yara Blanchessue by d man who does give iron and iron meh pants, I thought about the stories about our hashes in this area, the first man to run barefoot and the can beers used at that time, then my thoughts were interrupted like when you taking a shower and the water goes, different hashers approached the car, one giving me the best pepper sauce in town , another with a gadget to use for down downs and many other greetings of Long Live the Iron Lady, I felt like the Queen of England.

Were they hearing the whispers of the breeze that was blowing in Yara before the run? We are hashers through and through, we have had some good runs and limes thus far and Mountain Goat Doon with about 9 other hares did not disappoint they had us climbing up and down those hills like real goats and those who couldn’t be a hash goat that day, there was a walkers trail for them to graze. Excellent run, food and after lime. The hash welcomes all….the desperate housewifes, the white men who can’t jump, the 50 year old virgins, the saints and angels we are one big happy family. On On
