TOBAGO HASH 2012


So it's that time again			No matter where yuh from
Hashing in sun or rain			Tobago here we come.
Ibo Ibo reach early				In time to start the fun
And so he surprise we			On the Monday evening run.
Midweek, others coming			Ah see Latchmi, ah see Sharon
Guyana  representing			And Suriname had one. 

So Thursday from Carnetta's Inn			Hike to Rincon Waterfall
Led by Minister Colin					Those who went had a ball.
Of course important stop to make		At Maracas Bay
To get some tasty shark and bake		That made some people's day.
Reach back in time for extra hash		From Invaders panyard
Boobs and Dewey Eyes would get two lash	If they make it too hard.
On In and the beers start to flow		In the usual way
Carib by so,  Stag by so				Hashers start to play.      
Then maxi -taxi if yuh please			Full of yellow jerseys
And as I ask well who is these			Ah hear Surinamese
They reach in time for dinner			They really buss up shut
Paratha, Chicken, channa				Was tasting good – say what.
Then the dancing start					Talk about sweet pan
They warm up Vera's heart				"Happy Birthday" from the band.
And then one more surprise				Before the night was done
Suris ent believe their eyes			Ravic reach from Washington.
Meanwhile in the sister isle			They say was rain for so
Yuh know how dem hashers wild			Rain kyah stop dem – oh no.

Next day we meet a delay		Up in Piarco
Miss de hash? – ah say no way		We must reach Tobago.
And just how in the airport		Was delay with aeroplane
This time the buses were short		So was more delay again
But we reach the Plymouth run site	Where the hash began
Look like we'll finish in de night	Depending on how hashers ran
Well it was an A to B			More than a stroll in the park
And we end up in the sea		And do the down-downs in the dark.
And still no sight of Colin		Nobody seemed to know  
Was it who was not coming		That's why he failed to show.
But back to the apartments		And everybody eat
The action has to commence		So stretch yuh dancing feet
They say dance competition		Trinis say no problem
When she show them she motion		Party Animal beat dem
Ah don't know what they were thinking	Like they didn't have a clue
Somebody say beer drinking		Trinis beat them in that too.
Time reach for karaoke			Hashers start to stretch dey lung
Some still couldn't find their key	But the machine break down.
So they call for entertainment		The action must not stop
And for the crowd's  enjoyment		A woman came up
This tiny little balloon		She made the hashers know
That it could stretch and have room	For a head big so.
Then a man started singing		Ah not sure what he meant
It sound like it was hashing		But also something different
He tell meh  "macco and take note	It is two kinds of fun
You'll see who enjoying both		Before the weekend done.
The party continued			Everyone satisfied
DJ keeping the right mood		Wine-down,  Electric Slide
And for who feeling hungry		And start to get laid back
Jerk Chicken,  Pholourie		Welcome midnight snack.
The music stop at 2:00 a.m.		Dat's when de party done
But yuh know de hashers and dem		Kyah say who had what fun.

Next day some get up early		And start to prepare
Breakfasses  aplenty			Everybody coulda  share
To the beach some start going		Yuh kyah beat Store Bay
Now e-mails started flowing		What could they have to say?
Ah see man getting haircut		Under a shady tree
By now the temperature so hot		Cold beers screaming "look me"
Ah don't know where the morning went	But lunch time came so soon
Eat lunch and then the next event	Hash in the afternoon
Before anybody could say		Section 34
Buses reach to Canoe Bay		What could they have in store?
 We ran through some lovely terrain	We reach down to the sea
Out to the road and back again		Another  A to B
Well as the hashers ran			A bull made an advance
Some say it saw a man			And wanted some romance
But Anne took a dive			He say no ifs or butts
And somehow he survive			Despite bruises and cuts.
And like the hash went up a notch	A drinks stop on the way
Hashers  being served Scotch		For that Joanne would pay.
Yesterday was the Big Dicks		But was'nt hard at all
And today the verdicts			Cocky, but just casual
Then swimming, drinking, dancing	And we do the down-downs
 Birthdays celebrating			They make them look like clowns
Two folks swim and climb in a boat	Till we kyah see them no more
To finish a conversation		Started the night before.

Back at the apartment			Dinner laid out for all
Build up of excitement			For the Monster Ball
Ah see hasher playing hasher		Yuh could guess who ah mean
They couldn't beat Count Dracula	Courting the lovely Christine
Afterwards, big band take the stage	Is time for real fete
Full works from Second Imij		Heavy two hour set.
And as the clock say midnight		Corn soup and fish broth served
Warming up meh chest just right		What the hashers deserved
Some time around one-thirty		A hash run through the compound
This one was an A to Sea		Ah hear the guards dem frown
It was the usual suspects		That is all except one
The hashers that one expects		But how come Wilco miss this run?
By the time the fete finish		Some heading down to sea
Like they had a secret wish		To see what they could see    
But the moon looking down laughing	Trying to make out who is who
Of those who skinny dipping		And who chunky dunking too 

Soon after I was in meh bed		Ah sleep till morning reach
By the time that I raise meh head	Ah see some on the beach
Meanwhile the hashers through and through	Had gone off on a run
But I know that I could do			Without that morning sun.
Now some just taking it in stride	Others playing it cool
While some gone for a boat ride		To Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool .
Now on this final morning			Man trying to drink out beers 
Farewells – hugging and kissing		But I ent see no tears    

Ah want to recognize				Who help put on this show
Some of us don't realize			This don't happen just so
Plenty hard working people			Ah could'nt help but notice
To call names might cause trouble	Because some might get missed.
So to you Iron Lady					Tobago 2012 was great
And so from everybody				We heartily congratulate.

821 Oct 27, 2012 The Casuals Canoe Bay, Tobago FRB (Front Running Bastard)

Having missed the run hared by “The Dicks” on Friday, I was pretty eager to get in some good running before the night’s festivities. After a decent lunch, I got myself very well lubricated, as is customary, before a Saturday afternoon run. Some good banter with Betty & Lorin & some other hashers, and then I was all set!

The buses were on time, so everyone was all in tow for a ‘Casuals’ Run’. A short ride in good company & we arrived somewhere within the Canoe Bay estate for a “3 o’clock” run!! Hmmm., talk ’bout punishment for these hashers today. I figure the run time has something to do with the festivities planned for later on in the night, but, oh gosh…3 o’clock! The place was real hot! I actually considered finding some shade and waiting around for the moonlight run – but I may have been the only one on it! However, my relaxed disposition had me looking to catch up on some friendly exchanges in the meantime.

So we’re awaiting instructions from the hares – dressed like they’re about to venture on the “Tour de Tobago”. I wonder where are their bikes? Assuming the podium was a smug fella by the name of Ivan; who was spirited by the fact that the run would actually kick off at 3 o’clock exactly. No comment there. The pack was a sizable one by normal standards; a melting pot of different hashing nationalities – some runners, some walkers, some groupies. Five minutes later, and we were no doubt peremptorily hurried into the 3:00pm swelter.

On-On on the asphalt, off on to a trail, back on the asphalt; a false trail; up the road, then onto the trail again. We’re in the bush now – salvation from the sun above, but nonetheless a hot and humid afternoon. Some nice wide trails avail us hashers, with gullies to the side that reek of black muck. I personally had to test the consistency of the gully – a reminder that my long jumping skills are a bit rusty. Shortly into the run, there was no more pack, just the customary FRBs. There were some long false trails, but no great difficulty in locating the correct paths. We pass some livestock here and there and one seemingly large, placid adult male bovine. Fifty minutes later and we pass Francie and a group of hares – I would find out shortly afterwards that was the On-In. A decent stretch onto the beach area at Kilgwyn Bay would mark the end of this run.

Looking back when we were standing on the asphalt under the hot sun, it would have been difficult to put this run into perspective. But it was just what was needed for this pack on this day; a relatively short, free-flowing hash run. Great job by the hares!
The after lime was equally gratifying – with the draft beer van awaiting our arrival, Hash DJ already jamming the soca music. What more could a hasher ask for? Soon, mostly everyone took to the water – beer flowing freely. For me the highlight was the mood around – a real nice time being had by everyone.

Well not everyone – seems that the large domesticated ungulate mentioned a few paragraphs before; shall we say it was not so domesticated after all. One of the Surinamese hashers found out to his detriment. Guy got Poofter even after “getting bulled” – Ahh the life of a hasher….On On

821a Oct 27, 2012 Randall, David J, Victor, Hayden, Christine, Flash, Tall Boy and well maybe Ashas Leilani Estate, Maracas Valley, St. Joseph,Trinidado Not me

I understand that A Flash Hash was the name given to this hash run as a result of two drinking (notice I did not say drunken) ladies cornering Flash, the week before a hashing Saturday and getting her to agree to set a run while the POSH3 was in Tobago. Flash has never done a hash far less set a hash! Not content with that achievement, they proceeded to look around for a suitable run site and hares with just over a week before the run….Robin and Randall were ‘volunteered’ – Hayden, Victor and David Jamison (story to follow) were lassoed in! Plans were in motion to set a hash in a flash with Flash..

I arrived at the run site on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to see the ladies sipping their drinks while food fuh so was being prepared. Music blasted from a sophisticated boom box/ amplifier and all around there was an atmosphere of …. well, not exactly a hash run.

The Leilani Estate is located amidst the lush forestry of the Maracas Valley, still one of the most beautiful valleys in Trinidad despite the development of recent years. The run site was river side and from all appearances we were in for a river lime!

The run was billed for 3pm but it seems that no one notices these things, so I had enough time to get into some of the gossip. Apparently Asha had been too hung over to get out of bed that morning to set the run, so aforementioned Jamison had dragged himself out after flying in from Dallas and Miami, arriving home after midnight the night before. He was presently still out setting the run and had looked like death when Christine had taken lunch time refreshments for the hares.

By 3.30pm, I looked around to see only a handful of people and thought to myself, well we have some good food to eat today – Curry goat, geera pork, chicken, saltfish cassava, accra – but then they started coming in. Enrique and his band of 7, Robert and Usha, Pinny and Reina, The Hale Group, Salma and the Sisters, two fit looking ladies, the BP connection, Wahid, Richard Sinatra, Risa, Nick and Virgin Molly, Boos, Mawer, …just to name a few.

Looked like this was indeed going to be a good lime….

The Hash Hush was called by Pinny…. wha d!…. Yes Pinny!……Hares were introduced and we were advised that this was to be considered a fun run despite the two headed snake that was encountered while setting the run.

Off we set along the road, down into the river for an early wet shoes and then back onto the road to a check on the corner. Christine was responsible for this first check and I saw her mischievous grin from her car window!
Back check back to the run site and we were off into the bush. Slipping and sliding over the river rocks we then clawed our way out of the river and then trekked along the Maracas waterfall trail up to the picnic area where once again we encountered the ladies sipping their drinks.

So where is the beer stop?

Not now we were told!

ON UP, climbing over rocks, but still enjoying the greenery. ON UP to the waterfall and a cooling dip at the falls. Beautiful.
There was only one way to go from there – ON DOWN, on the same trail!
As we headed down, we saw the walkers almost to the falls looking for a waterfall with a pool(?) Hayden had told them that they did not have to walk to the falls since there was another pool and waterfall without the long climb. Being Hayden, he had passed the trail down to those falls and the walkers had climbed almost the full length of the trail! Despite his name, he is clueless at hay’ den seek…..I know that is a bad one!

ON DOWN towards the other waterfall – a tricky narrow trail but so worth it. A cooling dip in the pool and we were once again ON ON.
Back at the picnic area, Christine and Flash had finally decided to open the beer cooler and feeling nice and refreshed we sipped our beers and proceeded ON IN.

Not the usual hash run since there was not much to be done with that terrain but we all agreed : it was a pleasant time, at a good location and the hares had done a fine job.
We were now ready for D LIME!

Down, Down time. Pinny assisted by Reina called the hash hush.

The hares, even Asha, took their down downs – Flash took her shot of rum!

Virgins: Partick, Marie and Darian came with Enrique but Molly preferred to just come with Nick!

Poofter nominations: Asha (of course), Hayden for misleading the walkers and Victor for sending the young boys to the waterfall in search of women bathing naked…

And it was Victor as Poofter.

Many thanks to Robin Bassant for providing the run site, the fantastic meal, Tall Boy and the cooks. More excuses for down downs!

Bellies full of curry, and coolers full of beer, we partied to Richard’s music until the moon shone over us and our coolers were empty…then headed out in search of bars!!!!

Not a bad way to spend a Hashing Saturday when almost the whole hash was in Tobago! We were not feeling that sorry for ourselves anymore!

ON ON

From the Office of the Iron Lady

Tobago 2012……a weekend that would be remembered by all, each person having their own moment and experience, but Tobago 2011 is still clear as day to me, I remember at the Monster Ball the Saturday night when Eggie stood by my side with his hands folded and said Taz next year we have to do better than this and I said to myself how could you possibly do better, but you know when people are highly motivated and supported the impossible becomes possible. My support team from the travel agency, the bus drivers, Reed, Gizelle, Colin, Spuds, Cyril, Betty, Peter, Francie from Barbados, Paul from Suriname, Latchmie from Guyana, Andre (beerman), Andrew (chef), Nigel (Dj), The Big Dicks, The Casuals, the hash silent corporate sponsors, Eric and Marita, Robert Bermudez, Sports & Games, Trinrico, Martin, Pradeep, Arthur, Tiza, my daughter and my darling Ashe……you made it happen….Thank You…..it is because of you guys we had great runs, good after hash limes, delicious food and cold beers. Special thanks to our Trini hashers who kept the POSH flag flying high while we were in Tobago.

Poofter:…Zameer Ali for not knowing his priorities and going to golf with Matt and then coming to the hash to lime.
