RUN: #834
SITE: Chaguaramas Golf Course
HARES: Nevie, Numnuts, Hayden, Nella
SCRIBE: Canadian Hasher

Damn… I’m one of those foreign hashers who manages to duck my way out of everything including writing this, but Pradeep’s just got that special way to make me do anything! Or maybe it was just the number of beers consumed that pushed me to say yes. So here goes…first time…I don’t want this to be too boring so I’m going to send this to Hare Numnuts for him to Trinicize this for me…..

Sooo….was thinking there was no way in hell people would show up to run on Saturday afternoon with all the rain chaos experienced Friday night…took me over 2 hours in a car to go from the west to Cipriani then ended up ditching car cause it wasn’t moving so I might as well walk …..then more crazy rain Saturday morning. Nevi must have some horse shoes up his a—cause the rain miraculously stopped around noon….and the afternoon turned out excellent for a hash! Overcast but cool. But with rain comes mosquitoes, and they were out in full force. If you didn’t Off Up before the hash you only have yourself to blame cause Nevi warned us …how many damn emails did he send about repellent?

By 3:30 the parking lot at Chaugaramas Golf Course was filling up, and more hashers still arriving. CDA caused a little grief at around 3 saying we needed Ministerial permission to hold the hash on their property….but the hares got down on all fours when the security guard came by to shut us down …and we ended up only having to take down the Monster tent. No prob with selling beers ….which were flowing pre-run.

3:45 hash called to order…..but who de hares?….some guys walking around with well used yellow jerseys and masking tape across their chests? Yep, they’re the hares….Nevi, Numnuts, Nella and Haydon..they say this an environmental hash now, and we reusing ol’ jerseys….ok, like it. Virgins told what to do, then off we go. As we were told by Hares not to go on golf course, we think it will be easy to find start of trail, but right off we are on the wrong trail. Finally find another trail, and the only way to go is up, and up and up….

On the top of the hill we can see the north coast….beautiful …but as I run down the trail which is on the ridge of the hill and only a couple feet from the edge which plummets down to the rocks below, I wonder how the hell there hasn’t been a hasher or two knocked off during these runs. With eyes front, the hardest part of getting down the hill is quickly upon us…..slipping and sliding….and then a posse of little hashers about half my height and seemingly just out of preschool come flying by ….left of me, right of me, under me…and I’m not going slowly!! I make it down the hill, and in front of me is a nice flat trail….but no!..we are going up a SECOND hill. And just as tall as the first! Again, what a view when we get to top! But I have not time to enjoy…this is a good fast run. Again my legs start to shake as I realize I am a couple feet away from slipping to my death, so eyes down, I follow the path again along the ridge then slip, slide down the hill. Those kids must be way in front of me. Now I know where we are….Macaripe. Maybe we will have a beer stop on the beach!! No such luck. We look for the on-in sign as we all know we can just follow the roadway and get back to the Golf Course, but no paper. Maybe some beach visitors have moved the paper. We look everywhere for paper!! We even follow each other down the road sans paper because this is the only logical direction to go! Well hell no. Back we go! We have yet another mountain to climb! This one starts to the right of the beach, beside a derelict old house I have never seen before. Now I am tired…two hills were enough! I hear a young man say to his lady friend, both of them looking like jocks….”I don’t want to push you too hard”…..what!

What a surprise at the top of the THIRD hill…..it connects to the Bamboo Cathedral road. Nice run down on pavement and we are sure to be going on-in now. But no….whose idea was it to throw in a diversion through the forest…pretty, but we’ve had enough! Finally we get back on the Bamboo Cathedral road, and out to the Macaripe Road. Now we know where we are going. But hares are blocking our way to the trail back to the golf course! Yet another diversion through the forest! We finally get on the trail to the golf course and b-line our way home to the beers. That run was a couple hours long….good thing the days are getting longer. And better still….no rain!!

The parking lot turned out to be a nice place to lime…and the lime was growing! Time for down downs…..hashers gave the thumbs up to the run, and hares were rewarded with a beer. Virgins called on to the stage…which was provided on Doon’s truck. Then a few got caught with new shoes, which then were christened with beer. Poofter nominees were Nella…I forget why….a newbie from Barbados who had the nerve to show up to the run but stayed in the parking lot TO DRINK, and then there were 3 damsels who have been seen around town working out but showed up to the hash POST RUN only to show the hash men the results of their workouts. A second vote had to be taken because it was a close call between Mr. Barbados and the damsels…with our visitor being crowned as Poofter. Are all Barbadians cheap cause he took his sweet time using the hash arm-tube to drink his beer…..not wanting to spill a drop.

The lime was good…only a slight drizzle at times mainly because I had my umbrella with me. We moved over to the golf course club house after a while to buy food….some wings and chips or stewed chicken or whatever…..and were entertained by the music of their DJ.

HASH MASTERS MIS-HASHCEPTION

Well….we got a loyal hasher engaged in the scribe for the first time and a great attempt indeed, my little mischievous way of engaging hashers to partake. I would have been disappointed if the rain had kept some away but it did not and even brought out the “Movie Towne Posse” to the run BUT again, dark clouds and they bowed out but choose to lime and have some beers that made them contenders for poofter nominee but was out done by the Barbados hasher (so he claims) that got a virgin down down and never ran. Fun and more Fun…the way it should be.

Virgins: Verona, Marisa, Mya, Ainsley, Keven, Shelly Ann, POTHOLE, Jake and Ben

New Shoes: Annie and Christopher

Poofter: Andre (The Barbados Hasher) or so he said!

From the HASH MASTER ……….ON ON! A GOOD RUN….GOOD BEERS……& GREAT FUN WITH THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT IN MIND!

DIRECTIONS TO THE NEXT RUN #836

DATE: May 25th, 2013
RUN: #836
SITE: Mission Beach, Toco
HARES: Marlon Newallo & Devon

Drive east along the CR highway passing Arima until you reach the Wallerfield traffic lights where you turn left and head towards the Eastern Main Road. Turn right on that intersection and drive till you reach the Valencia junction just after passing the Pillars on both side of the road and the Heineken sign on the left. On the junction, keep left on the traffic light and head onto the Valencia road and drive for about 20 minutes until you reach a cross road. Turn left on that cross road drive until you reach the Toco junction where you continue on the left and drive for a couple of minutes until you reach Mission Bay. Allocate 2.5 hours journey time
