RUN: #835
SITE: Aripo
HARES: Arima Crew

Well Well Well…..when I heard it was part of the Big Dick crew that was setting this run, I was sure that it will have some dam huge hills and even worse, when I got the news of the local guide did not show up for the second recce, then I was even more worried…..ah local man find the walk to difficult? Well, then we agreed with his decision after doing the run. It is the first time I literally stopped and allowed hashers to pass but is only ego and embarrassment kept them go-ing. The fun started a couple weeks ago, Fireman was supposed to be the main hare with Eric as the consultant but Fireman always late, coming to a recce ten o’clock instead of 7am, then all the semantics during the recce, ah hear that a hare, a Policeman who is supposed to protect and serve did a twenty feet moon walk when he came upon a baby snake and after that was literally holding Eric pants to guide him along the trail. He and Fireman then got two pieces of branches and swept every dry leaf off the ground on the trail before making the next step. I hope that the ladies hashers take note as these two men (the ladies man) will not be able to protect them in time of danger so back to the older and experienced guys.

The direction to the run was not as precise and literally so as it was way beyond the traditional spot by the community center and way into the hills but it was truly virgin territory with a very scenic drive that looked never ending. The cars had a hard time with some difficult navigation to prevent damages from the huge pot holes but those with the 4×4 made it look relatively easy. The parking was well arranged but it was a warm up walk from the parking area to the run site, a humble home with all the basic amenities and a very friendly lady who received the hashers with warmth.

The Run

So the ON ON was called and we started down to the what we taught was a correct way as there were not many options but we got it wrong twice and eventually had to head back to where we parked and use the trail that was obvious, now I understand why a hare was missing until the last minute of the start, he was waiting to put down paper when we assembled! …Although it was relatively cool, the humidity was killing us as it was a very long treck, climbing and climbing with no end in site.

Along the way, we could have seen the hares making sure that everyone was OK but in particular, making sure that they kept the walkers pack together as going back to look for hashers would have been hell. I must say though, that everyone was in good spirit but the unlucky first timers who thought that it was a race and kept going quickly realized that this type of fitness is differ-ent and so they slowed every fifteen minutes even saying hello to the sea-soned hashers as they pass them on the trail. About thirty minutes into the run and a hare standing patiently “walkers or runners” and only because of ego I kept going on the runners trail tired like a dog but had no alternative. There were at least four hashers with me and we stuck together until we saw the lone female hare calling ON ON and so we felt good thinking that the end was near and even better, it was down hill.

And there the beer stop on the road and the ON ON IN sign, well I grabbed a water and started to run thinking that it was the traditional run in BUT I was wrong, a right turn into the bush again and going up the hill….it was liter-ally up and up and up and OH F! what the hell is this cried some hashers, this is punishment and this is where I had to bow and let a few pass me. I thought it would have never ended until I heard a voice saying “you nearly there……straight up and I saw the helping hand to pull me up the hill and onto the road where we parked and then it was a cool couple minutes walk in.

And then the Down Down

The Hasher thought that it was a good run and especially the site. The tradi-tional down down with the beer. Hares: Antonio (Fireman), Eric, Marita, Ricky, Sheldon (Policeman) Don, Riza, Christain (not the Big Dick), Brandon (Young Riza) and Stefon

Virgins: We are always happy to see new hashers : Mandy, Joey, Stacy, Simo-ne, Robert, Shobha, Marc, Stephon, Stephen and Ann Marie

New Shoes: these were the people who looked forward to getting a FREE beer to pour it into their shoe and drinking it down…down ……down…. Laim, Joann, Vaughn, Harold (Yes …the Lee boy) Ricky, Sophia and Stephon.

POOFTER Nominees:
Ricki and Annstesia—They dropped a box of curry on the roadway on their way to the hash and they thought that no one saw them……we have security camera installed.
Fireman— Caught buying imitation T-shirts at Rattan on Henry street, coming late for every Recce and being the ladies man and to celebrate Mother’s day
Eric—For the Italian designer Hash direction sigh and installed by a Spanish man

The Poofter

And it was Ricky and Fire-man…..joint POOFTERS
The Hashers nominated Ricky for throwing the box of curry on the roadside on his was to the hash site and Fireman quickly thought that he was out of it and assisted Ricky with the dirty, wet, muddy and ice cold poofter T-Shirt…..and so Ricky, still in shock as to how we got the story put on shirt


The crown cheered on for Fireman….I pull my secret bag out and asked hashers was is the celebration to-morrow and they shouted “Mother Day” and we had to celebrate in mother style. The bra came out and Betty quickly came to assist Fire-man to pull his T-shirt off and put on the Bra, and he thought that was all, then came the netted RED under-wear followed by the dress and then the wig….toasted with the potty of beer to a “he is a poofter true and true”
Everyone really enjoyed it…great fun had bu ALL.
