Run: 829 Date: Feb 16 2013 Site: Brasso Seco Hares: North Coast Posse Scribe:

The curiosity of what the terrain would be like was building up as we drove through some lush and beautiful terrain to actually anchor at the site. The lush vegetation of christaphene and the well know Aisa Wright reserve park was well worth the journey. At one point their was a lovely view of the valley as some hashers stop to take some shots from the advantaged point.

Well…we reached the site and was pleasantly welcomed by the local very humble villagers of the Brasso Seco community. It was a remembrance of the good old village days, polite and respectful kids saying good evening as they pass along curiously looking at this mad bunch of people……diverged race, age and nationality.

A lot of new faces……amounting to fifteen virgins…..that looked very eager to know where are the running trails as they could only see very steep hills from the start site. Food….well you know that is the second command of the hashers bible, the first being the beer….orders were placed well in advanced for the local bread and chicken baked in the local mud oven proudly baked by the local baker who stood there from early morning preparing to satisfy the hunger of the hashers……hashers also supported the home made ice cream, wine, pastel, salt fish and provision…….all taste very good!

The HM made the call and the hares assembled under the HM order and the run began, the usual warm up start to find the correct ON ON….took about three wrong checks but all were on their way. The terrain provided for a cool run with trails conducive to running in the first instance bring the hashers to a river that we all knew was the correct trail being a trademark for most hares but this one was not to be, it was a back check that literally caught everyone in their tracks. It was back to the trails with some hills to walk and hashers started to show sigh of weakness and understandably so as it is literally days after all the grog and fun from Carnival……but as true hashers….we had to make it….pushing ourselves to the max. After forty five minutes into the run…..you start hearing the grumbling, stups……….hills again and an X at the bend of top of the hill. The last 15 minutes was most tiring and the beautiful site of the ON ON IN…….was pleasing but……..we knew that we had another ten minutes of running back to the site….luckily…most of it was down hill and it completed a really good workout burning off some of the Carnival calories. The run took one hour and a half and for the walkers around the same time but all was in within the hour and thirty minutes. A good run indeed.

The down down began with the hares….Robin, Hayden, Smitty, Spuds, Susan and Texas Blow Ho …getting the nod of approval for a good run and enjoying the down down. Next it was the virgins…..fifteen of them including some from Mexico and the UK. They all had fun saying “who made them come”……and they off to drinking…down…down….down …….but opps…one was very slow and sipping so as normal tradition she had to wear half of it and then she promised to drink the rest…..I think that her name is Eleen…she enjoyed it. New shoes was exciting to the new comers as they were pleasantly surprised how hashers conform to these hash rituals. And off course….the one that all look forward to…the Poofter…..Robin for not having a beer stop, Patricia for wearing a T- Shirt on the run ” could do it in 70 minutes in 11 different positions”, Ronald for having his young son pull him for most of the run, Brandon for begging him mummy to bathe him, Jessie for peeing in the Bamboo patch and sitting on top the hill letting all the old folks pass him………well you could guessed who got it….Patricia with the clever T-Shirt and Ronald……it was good fun to see them both getting the Poofter down down.

Pradeep’s Energy

Well…off course I enjoyed it…thanks to Robin and his very passionate group of hares….a job well done and to the virgins, the new shoes posse and most of all….the nominee for Poofter with special recognition to Patricia and Ronald for being a crowd pleaser……..important though…..the people behind the scenes making the magic happen……..Ash, Riza…Don…..Pat….Andre the beer man……Marita…..Eric…..Salma…….and all who supported by putting things in place and actually giving all their time so that the hashers could enjoy themselves. Recognition to the hares for working with the community in the spirit of giving back as the raffle and sale of food did good for the local community.

Welcome virgins: Shaleen, Tara, Bianca, Elaine, Roberto, Cullum, Ivan, Enrique, Antonio, Brittany, Akeem, D’Neal, Jadon, Brook

Run: 828 Date: Feb 02 2013 Site: The Arboretum Hares: Ex Hash Masters Scribe: Alicia

Yet another West-side run, which should have been huge, but ended up being moderately attended…at best. With all the fetes, carnival activities, gatherings, and other assorted goings-on, who could blame people for “ducking” this run? To top it off, it was set by former Hash Masters, and we all know how those runs go; “Too many cooks in the kitchen,” or so they say.

That turned out to not be the case though, as out of the 25 former HM’s, only a mere handful showed up! Apparently the others had better things to do as well. Down in numbers, the HMs took us back to the Arboretum for another trip around and through the well-trodden Covigne Trails.

The run started off with the group heading back in the direction we came from then swiftly onto the mountain biking trails. After 15 minutes of seemingly running around in circles, we ended up just behind our original starting point but there was no ON-IN in sight! From here the run became interesting with some hills, in and out of the river, as well as a few back checks for good measure. At some point in the run, we started to wonder if the hares were purposely sending us through all of the stinging nettles and spider webs they could find.

Finally, we heard the sound of cascading water! A waterfall, what a treat! A few minutes under the falls was what we needed. This was immediately followed by a short ON-IN. Once again, no beer stop! You’d think the ex HMs would know better than this. Overall,the run was quite enjoyable.

The down-down, on the other hand was quite weird. There was a judge involved, one of the poofters having to drink their beer with a few chocolate bars floating in it which was supposed to represent poop??? Anyways, it was a strange ending to a decent run!
