NOVENAS in NORTH MANZANILLA

"De bus ain’t goin’ no-whey’…yuh might as well drink"

What enlightened words from the lips of a former HM.

Passing fact that everybody was probably in this situation ’cause de bus reach late in de fus’ place..but we’ll forget these little things. So let’s see….a call to the bus at the proposed start time of the run placed said occupants somewhere between Sangre Grande and the run site. Fast forward to post run, conducting our semi-menstrua activities: …..

“ Oh dear! Some one missing…. not that I had noticed or anyone apart from Christine! Especially a certain sweeper hare.

Turns out we need a 4X4 so never to turn down adventure and activity…. off we set Gerry, Doon et. al..  Looking for lost hashers is always an adventure but this time after an easy start, we come to a river crossing of two concrete lamp posts a side for the wheels to pass on. Doon got out to ensure I kept the wheels on the "bridge".  Then the going got tough 20 – 30 minutes of serious 4 wheel road, mud up to the doors at times. Kudos to Toyota…. with smooth tires we never got stuck!

Funny thing …. we were expecting three lost souls, Randall, Pinny and Reina here there were four lost souls (  never get to heaven….). Uncle Ray hadn’t been missed as his turn to buy a round hadn’t come up yet.  On the return at one deep pit of mud, took a detour through the trees with Doon again walking ahead to guide the way. Back across the bridge with edges of the tires hanging over and back for Down downs to begin.

Life as it’s meant to be! ”

Rewind to the start…De hares just finishing lunch at the pre-proposed run site…I now arriving….hmmm…shoulda know we in fuh it today! “So this ain’t de run site?…Two people done find a park next to we arready. “Nah is dong de road”. But I thinking…”here nice arready!”…Whey we goin’ again’?” 2 km dong de road, and half de road in heaven, half in hell! Wuh jail!… De hares say “leave yuh cyar here!! Walk de ress.” The adventurous make it past…but ‘de ress’ find ah park. Ah know the maxi ain’t passin’ here!

Okay, so it was worth it to go the extra distance. The run site sought to replace ‘idyllic’ in the dictionary. Virgin territory de fella did say. A damn good attempt! A murky, Atlantic bay…sustaining no activity…at least not while we were there. A lovely view. But how we gettin’ de beers dong here now?

Two villagers – a few hares…kept a tight control of things on the run. Excellent terrain – extremely varied by turf – well managed – plenty mud & picka – rigorously undulating – south of 1 & ½ hrs…just what the hash needed!

Throw in a historic tour to boot!

I get the faint sound of a seance of sort. So please tell me again…”Why de bus ain’t leavin’ ?


Pradeep’s Energy

It was a classic to have 4 experienced hashers getting lost. Uncle Ray was much more quiet than he usually is….and you know what that mean, not a word after they found him as he was also very surprised that he got lost. The comical things was that they all followed Pene’s usual ON ON call that means go the opposite direction but Pene and Rainer seems to dominate as they were the majority, and our goodly old friend and very experienced hasher Randall, well well……he lead the rosary choir and within minutes saw the bright light heading their way. Randall immediately took his T-shirt off as a sign of surrender for the POFTER nominee and so it was well received during the down down as the vast majority of hasher voted him in favour. The hashers left a very positive image with the villagers of north Manzanilla delivering charity to the needy family. This was a well-coordinated effort by Mag and Ivan who took up the task to also deliver a very good run. Looking forward to the continued collective effort, support and comradery of all. ON ON!

Virgins: Jessie, Stephanie, Rosemarie, Gary, Derrick, Simon, Annalisa, Denise

New Shoes: Mya Nieves – drank it out her father’s shoes

Poofter Nominees: Hares, Pinny, Ashe, Randall

Poofter: Randall for being a seasoned hasher who should know better yet still he rolled Pinny on the trail and got lost.

Interesting Historical Facts:

North Manzanilla housed the first Jungle Warfare Training School in the world for the Allied Forces during WWII. This Camp became known as,”The Road to Hell” since on average at least 4 servicemen were said to have died during their rigourous training exercises. However, much success came from training right here on Trini soil as the first unit 5308th Composite Infantry Regiment which later became know as,”Merill Marauders” found great fame fighting in Burma.
We will be running through that old camp site,etc!
Know, understand, appreciate and love your country – T&T!

814 Aug 4, 2012 Ivan’s Hash Run and a Dick (Ivan, Don, Ashe, Terrence, Joshua and Pradeep) North Manzanilla Little Miss Muffet

Line Break - On-On Feet

So, the sun came out in time for us to start the run and appropriately so! Yippee! After all, we’re at Manzanilla Beach. We are even being hosted at a nice beach house, “Oh, so civilized”, with a pool and real toilets and everything the way I like it! Oops, gave myself away! Oh well, truth be known, I am more of a “Sex in the City” girl, than the outdoorsy, nature type, who is comfortable in hiking boots and dirt. In fact, truth be known, I don’t like dirt, I don’t like to be dirty, I don’t like bugs, snakes or any of that $*%# and I am frankly most comfortable in a beautiful dress and stilettoes! BUT, I do always love a good challenge! Today, I am pretending I am in the Hamptons. I almost forget that I am at a Hash in TNT with a bunch of drunkardsJ who are pretending that they like to run! A lot of people seemed to have shown up too, for Mr. Adventure’s Hash! Just when I start to relax around the pool, chatting with my little friend Ross and company, the group is called to order by the Head Hare and he introduces us to his harem.

Ivan tells us the usual lies, “no mud, no hills, not very long…” etc. … and, we are sent off. The hash started out with the usual shenanigans, up the hill, back down the hill and into the bush, wait around the parking lot, oh, we’re off again… ok, so, now it’s on…on, now it’s not…. We slide down a few bare, muddy hills, run through some bush and after a while, I am thinking, well “this isn’t so bad at all, we must be almost done by now”! I start to congratulate myself silently thanking the heavens that once again, I managed to say off my ass and relatively clean and unwounded. The last hill was a bit treacherous and I did have Robin trailing me; with me shouting to him, “go away, I don’t want you falling on me…” BUT, IT WAS NOT SO!!! Off in the distance, as we get out of the bush, I spotted a Hare, Diane’s son, Joshua, in his little shorts as he was giving directions to a small group gathered before what appears to be a swamp! Ok, so as you must have noted: I am decidedly NOT a good candidate for “swamping it”. I can stand the prospect of having to figure out a way down a slippery, muddy, steep hill with no footholds or running through dense bush or a steep climb, but swamps are definitely not my strong suit! I see that muddy water and my mind gets to racing… snakes are all my mind can conjure up! Although my panic button was about to go off, I pay close attention to Joshua as he takes off through the swamp, barely skimming the mud as he disappears in a flash, leaving us all far behind. As he leaves us behind, I luckily caught his parting words, “try to stay on your toes, so you don’t loose your shoes”!

I think, “Well, I don’t like the sound of that at all” but, I mutter to myself, “I can do that, I can stay on my toes…” I take a small bit of pleasure from the fact that right behind me is Mumtaz, yup, the Iron Lady herself. After trudging through the muck for awhile, I hear her say, “girl, I don’t like this swamp business at tall, you?! I am decidedly not up for conversation right about now, but I utter a few unseemly phrases and go back to concentrating on the task at hand! A little while later, Iron Lady speaks again. This time, it sounded more like a whimper! “Girl, I don’t like no swamp. Tell meh when we out of here!” “We eh outta here yet??!” I cannot even turn around to look at her, but I am thinking, what??? Iron Lady??? “You must want to be POUFTAH real”?

Finally, after what seems like an eternity, the swamp came to an end as abruptly as it started and not a moment too soon! BUT, still no “ON IN” in sight! It STILL was not over!!! After more running (with the pulsating music of a neighborhood bar to fill our heads), we came to the crashing waves of the ocean and a moment of pure bliss. At least we had a little reprieve; we were allowed to wash the past hour’s muck off in the ocean, before heading “ON IN” to a delightful evening at the lovely beach house; where I am happy to report the Hashers toasted Harold and his new bride, tried to name his son Ross as Pouftah and eventually got Mumtaz to acquiesce that she was the true Pouftah of the day. Although no one would explain exactly why AND, Of course, no nasty t-shirt or diaper was to be seen on the sexy lady. And, btw, Mrs. Iron Lady, I did not rat you out!

Great run! Loved it! A fantastic job was done by Mr. Adventure and his Harem!

Line Break - On-On Feet

From the Office of the Iron Lady (Together we aspire, together we achieve)

This run was set by The Casual boys and the CEO of the Dicks (Pradeep) and the jersey had Ivans run, whatever the arrangement, together they aspired and perspired to set this run in North Manzanilla. Great run site venue, good parking, good food but still not up to the standard of Run of the Year. The Hike Master, Ivan likes to set his runs in places that have history or a story so he say that Manzanilla is a Spanish word for little apple. When the Spanish ruled Trinidad, they noticed lots of poisonous Manchineel Trees lining that Northern Headland of which the fruit from this tree resembles an apple. Hence the reason for the name Manzanilla.Today these trees can still be found in certain parts of North Manzanilla but not many in East Manzanilla.This is due to the cultivation of that “exotic” or {import by accident} coconut palm which adorns the Eastern to Southern Eastern Coast Line. So this lovely area was the site for the run of the year, but all I remember is the swamp, they say men have balls, but it was D balls ah didn’t know ah had that got me out of that never ending yuckeyness. The after lime at Dougies Bar was fabulous, could you believe at midnight Marguerite, Roxanne, Marita, Giselle, The Minute Maid Girls, Party Animal, Janine, Misha, Numbnuts wife, the Iron Lady and the guys were partying strong. Ivan we still waiting for the run of the year, it could be Tobago.

Poofter nominees: Ross (harold’s son) for wanting to have serious talk with the person who set the run (he complained about the mud) Harold for having his son complain about mud on the run and Arthur for nominating Ross for Poofter (for no reason), so those were the nominees and then a broad mouth casual called butcher nominated the Iron Lady because I shared their conversation about designing the perfect pussy.

I AM BUTCHER SMART WITH WIT
I WILL USE A KNIFE AND GIVE HER A SLIT
I AM A CARPENTER STRONG AND BOLD
WITH A HAMMER & JIZZLE I WILL GIVE IT A HOLE

I AM A HUNTER SHORT AND STOUT
WITH A PIECE OF FOX FUR I WILL LINE IT OUT
I AM A FISHERMAN
I WILL THROW IN A FISH AND GIVE IT A SMELL
I WILL BE THE PREACHER
I WILL TOUCH IT AND BLESS IT AND MAKE IT PEE
I AM A HASH STUD
I WILL SUCK IT AND SCREW IT
AND CALL IT A PUSSY CAT
