Line Break - On-On Feet

It was a pleasant feeling driving to the hash since it was so close to Port of Spain, meaning I can fully knock back some beers and not worry about pee stops on my way back. That pleasant feeling soon vanished when I found out who the hares were. “Oh boy, are they going to give us a hell of a time.”

The area looked like it would provide a good run. A call to order was made introducing the hares. Soon we were off, running in the wrong direction from the start. We were lead uphill and after about 10 minutes came back to the parking lot. Question marks arose on many of the hashers who thought this might be the shortest run in history. But we were lead back through a playground and then did the punishment begin.

Hills, slippery paths, vines and thorns are basically what followed. A trail meant to scare off the virgins that came. At the edge of the golf course, hopes were high for an On In but it was nowhere to be found. As we set off once again towards Macqueripe road with a dread feeling that we were going back into the bush, Michelle casually walked to a truck and announced that this was a beer stop. But what is this, poofter.

Our thoughts were right; we were yet again lead back into the bush. Soon enough, we were back on the road and soon the on-in. All in all, it was good run. The downs downs were called, starting with new shoes which belonged to Alistair, Shawna and Harty. The poofter nominees were of course Michelle, Spiderman, who was swinging and jumping to and fro during the hash and Dianne, who had a sweet eye for Spiderman. During the nomination, Dianne even made Spiderman get down on all fours. I really thought that they were going to engage in coitus right there. In the end, it was Dianne who was selected.

The virgins were Junie, Cinde, Elliot, Anneke, Rishe, Stacy, Giselle, Avislalla, Elizabeth, Annalise and Renais. We even had a hasher from Australia, Dave aka Tripod, who tried showing us why he was so named.


Pradeep’s Energy…the release of the beast

It was anticipated to be a well attended HASH and so it was, confirming that the lighthouse is the Trini landmark for far and West Mall for close. It was a pleasant drive though, enjoying a relatively Traffic free one and the lush scenery into the Chagaramas Golf Course. I was a bit concerned at first sight, seeing the hares showing each other their scares from setting the run, one with a banded knee claimed to have been from a fall on his own cutlass, another with a bruised hand and another with a back injury. It all looked suspicious as though something did no go as planned in the bush. The run started off in chaos at first but settled into a pleasant one with mixed terrain but got spoilt by a very puzzled end where a lot did not reach the on on in sign. I personally enjoyed the run and was pleased that most people did. The drinkers also had a ball, six kegs and a couple bottles of spirits went in a couple of hours, if we did compare that to the competition that night on the peninsula, we would have out done the others…..true to form with our motto “a drinking club with a running problem”.

Line Break - On-On Feet

Well the directions never indicated 4x4needed to be transportation of choice. No distances were included so old dudes like myself had to keep sharpand guesstimate.

Anyways the day started off hot as hell. Reminded me of the days when David Morand used to drink with Satan on Fridays. This was one hash that should’ve started at 5 and no one would’ve mind. We were sweating long before the run even started, and some of us hid under the well placed tents. First time for me to see tents n chairs at a hash. So some of the old geezers used it as a time to regain consciousness.

The run started with an x, which set the tone for the rest of the run. Guess we all know how troublesome x’s can be,have yuh running up and down for no reason and just overall not pleasant to deal with. However, we did come for the challenge and for those who didn’t walk with their geritol, well next time.

The x’s kept coming faster than cheap whores at a free papsmear testing clinic.The x’s though were far down the trails so u had easily a 60-75m run, some longer before u realized there was another x. Only few men have so many x’s. But in the hash world many x’s can mean a better run.This gave the slackers like Harold and his bastard ole friends, a chance to play catch up. This phenomenon called’ol bastards catch up’ seemed to work to keep the group together. This was a lot better than the stampede we had in Flanagin Town. A run set by Satans drinking buddy himself Dave Moron.

My esteemed hash colleague Colin passed us on an uphill and said ‘its not a hike lets have some running.’ This was about 45min into the trail. A woman in a yard with some dogs said ‘diz the last lap?’ I said ‘no we are about half way thru.’ Her dog was erratic and someone said. ‘dog only getting on so cause he mother is a bitch’ heehee.

One other note… I did find parts of the trails to be a bit hard on the hash. Looked like a good recipe for a sprained ankle. Wait 2 ppl got sprained ankles? Hmmm …..my hunch was right after all. So we had 2 injuries, again in the hash world a norm.

Further on down the trail, more x’s. Well this time Colin was also hiking. I guess the many x’s wore him out too. Hope the alimony wasn’t too heavy for him to bear.

So we reach the end and see an ‘on in’ sign however, the sign was on part of the trail that led to a road or Twhich leads either way. First group heads right or east as Peeny would say and they come back n say no paper. Sothe group of us who are smart and generally wait for the dummies headed west. Road seemed to be getting less and more overgrowth. So we headed back east n another hasher said ‘road kinda ends.’ Christopher Columbus also known as Peeny says ‘ the sun sets in the west’ I did not know what bearing that had on anything but it sure was funny. But peeny says lets head back east. Well the final way was west, then we got to find out that Peenywas just making a general statement.

The down downs was a blur as some used it to experiment with alcohol on an empty stomach. For me this was way more entertaining than Ash stripping as a fairy showing off what he doesn’t have and 2 grown men running a race in the middle of all the fracas. Anyways back to the experiment, as the subject was a young lady, we had a couple night vultures began circling. Maybe in Grande,Corbeau have night vision goggles or infrared detection systemsHowever, these vultures were not only trying to feast themselves, but I must say did try to help, as I was accused of not being an avid admirer of drinkers.(that can’t handle their liquor)

Back to the hash.The hares on this run should’ve been the poofters as this was a REAL SHIT run.

Next run is apparently set by Morand again, as he was showing off his knees so proud of his scars and bruises No reason for us to know, but just a hint he spends a lot of time on his knees, in the forest, surrounded by men that drink.

And that ladies n gentlemen brings us to the end of the hash trash.

But one question…. Anyone knows the name of the young lady who got skunked?

Line Break - On-On Feet

From the Office of the Iron Lady

HARES : HAYDEN, NICO, SPUDS,ROBIN,VICTOR,SUSAN AND KELVIN THE VILLAGER all dressed in our national color….red.

Before the run started Ashe in his purple jersey was called up and all present were reminded that at the last run when most people were in red for our country’s Golden Jubilee celebration, Ashe wore is purple strip jersey which he has been wearing for many years, so just as Sampson hair was cut off, Ashe was stripped of his purple wear and upgraded in a red jersey, pants and a T&T tie, d man looked hot.

MUD FUH SO….these were the words printed on their t-shirts…well that was lie…..7 hares who were invisible on the run…..but we found our way. the ON IN written on the left side at the end of a trail however when we stepped onto the road we did not know if to go left or right… I headed left, but Pinnard said the sun setting right so we should go right…..well you know that was wrong…..but we found our way.Virgin

terrain, a hidden village with some nice people who welcomed us like family, good trails, well set run, some injuries but the casualty ward which was located under the drinks tent with Dr OZ who now is Dr Was, Nurse Party Animal and Dr Do Little by day and a House Nurse by night attended to the injured ladies.

There was also a hamper which the hares gave to the youngster who came in first, this was young Jessie (Cyril’s grandson).

Poofter nominees: the hares for a long drive to run site and a short run, Harold for cutting cost since he got married and making a wooden slippers for his son Ross and Ross for actually wearing the slippers. Poofter to Ross.

Happy Birthday: Happy 60th Birthday Henk… you still look like 16!

Fit..Fast…Furious….Fit Fast and Furious jersey given to Reza who has been so committed to the hash that he brings his wife Lisa, and their young sons Jordan and Brandon to the hash for the past 3 years, whether they running or not and even when one of them is sick or injured he still brings them.

Poofter Nominies…Pinny for saying the sun setting to the right and we should go that way, Nico for putting the ON IN where he did which was not very directionally correct and a virgin, new shoe hasher tnamed 3 E who throwed away the beer in his new shoe which he had to drink and for just not being co-operative during the down down, poofter : 3 E.

Mention must be made of the Angel Gabriel who we met when we hashed on the other side of Orupone early this year, who appeared again and as usual wanted to sprint one of our guys, so it was Mountain Goat and him….The Angel Gabriel flew to the finish line.

Line Break - On-On Feet

My absolute favorite thing on the hash must be to scribe. I can never escape it. Even when I stop hashing for a while, inevitably when I return, I will be asked. Two Saturdays ago was no different. This time though, I was approached by the Ironing Lady AFTER the run, when I was already half drunk with no clue as to what transpired a mere hour or two ago.

I was en-route to the hash, driving behind some slow poke who turned out to be Marli, who was unsure of where he was going, so he graciously pulled aside to let me take the lead. On approaching the site, I was scared shitless, as coming toward me in a mean, battle ready Land Rover jeep, was non other than Osama Bin Laden! Whatthefuck???  I thought he was killed in Pakistan by the Americans?? A lump of shit sneaked out of my asshole and just brushed my jockey shorts leaving some skid marks and went back up, when I realized it was non other than that ancient recluse of a hasher once known as All Fours, otherwise known as Denis Voison now sporting a Bin Laden look alike beard. Seems he was taking his dogs for their regular Saturday afternoon drive when he stumbled upon the On –In and realized that he was in hash territory. I could not convince him to join us in the run, but he willingly decided to partake in the beers afterwards.

The place was well decorated in the national colours, this being the day after out 50th Independence anniversary, complete with DJ playing kaiso from back in the days of Columbus and almost everyone in their patriotic red and black except for Ash who is colour blind, not knowing the difference between purple and red.

The area looked suited to a good run, the type of terrain that only a real jack ass could fuck up. But then again, it was Morand. A call to order and we were off and running up a hill right from the start. A call of on back had Kristin feeling as pleased as punch, no doubt she set that false trail. The right trail was back down and off to the right. The tone of the first half of the run was pretty much the same, single file and mostly uphill. For the second half, it got more varied and interesting with a bit of slippery, rocky river and some wider trails that allowed for some running and overtaking. Soon enough, we were on the road and the on-in and we were back at the cars. A good run and just the right length for me as I had not hashed for a while.

Meanwhile, back at the cars, the lime got going with the tourist section comprising of Demaris, Flash et al sitting in their chairs chit chatting and the crowd gathering into their various cliques.

The down downs were called, and there was a re-enactment of the signing of the declaration of independence by Queen Elizabeth (not Betty…..or was it Princess Margaret?), Sir Solomon Hochoy and a rather malnourished Eric Williams. The usual birthday greetings to Michelle and Kristin, introduction of the virgins and what now passes for the poofter award. There was also Ex-HM Quinam Bay , giving a down down to the departing Congo Man, who after years of trying finally got Mr. Henry at the Canadian Embassy to approve his residency status. However, the celebrations were short lived, as we found out he was not really leaving us, but merely going on extended vacation as he would be back for Carnival, every regatta and Great Race to throttle for Mr. Solo and just about any other reason he can find. This just about covers about eight months of the year.

The food was excellent and thank God, the DJ found his box of up to date records and the party started in earnest, with everyone having a blast. Seems the lime was so good that when we attempted to stage an after hash bar lime, no one really turned up so we proceeded home.

As I sign off, I would like to wish Darin all the best and we look forward to him running with the POSH3 in the future. We will certainly miss his loud presence and as a part of that great group of run setters, Larry, Curly and Moe who have been responsible for some of the best runs experienced on the POSH3. Maybe he can set the overseas next year in Toronto .

From all of us Darin…..Bon Voyage……On-On!

From the Office of the Iron Lady

The Port of Spain Hash House Harriers joins our country Trinidad and Tobago in the celebration of our Golden Jubilee,

50 years of being independent. Trinidad is my land and of it I am proud and glad, so we joined in the celebration by wearing red and you know there must be some who came in other colors. But the majority was in red, so as we ran through some lovely terrain it was such a beautiful sight to see all that red amidst the browns and greens of the forest. Good job to our hares in finding a good area for the run site and also setting an enjoyable run. The Order of the Port of Spain Hash House Harriers Award was given to Lorin Paton for his distinguished and outstanding Service to the Port of Spain Hash. The CHACONIA MEDAL AWARD was awarded to Daphne Carvalho who has served the hash in the field of promoting the hash to both locals and foreigners she truly has the hash spirit and for this The Iron Lady thanks you. Fit Fast and Female t-shirt given to Daphne Carvalho.

Happy Birthday: Happy Birthday to Kristin Morand

Safe journey and best wishes to Darin Marshall and his family as he leaves our island in the sun.
