RUN: #833
SITE: Maracas Bay
HARES:Doon, Lisa, Paul, Kern, Nita, Alisa, Mandy & Lorenzo
SCRIBE: Guess?

“Ah not missing that run”…she indicated with her group during the last run and could understand why. “I think that it will be a good lime and ah hear that Doon sponsoring the food, it go be good and in Maracas, we will take ah swim”. The direction was very simple and the run site reminded me of “Jazz on the greens” with couple tents up in the hollow allowing for the patrons to look down from the incline and the green lush grass allowed for quite a comfortable sitting area. The area was also cool and the trees and hills created a natural barrier to the valley where we anchored. The parking was tight “where the traffic police” shouted a hasher upon his arrival and out came a woman directing the traffic. “go and turn there” pointing to a spot further up that was well planned allowing for ease of turn to head back. “Ok……park here” the woman hasher traffic police said. Everyone seems to give a thumbs up for the location and its picturesque site. Hashers were very early, not far from POS, I assumed that was the reason and with no traffic, it was a cool and pleasant drive.

“Boy…Doon have a gold mine here…the man could do a lot with this…ah could see some kind of eco-tourism here with little cabanas among the lushness of the vegetation….ah will have a chat with Doon”. Some choose to take a walk in the garden with acres of crops of different kind and off course….ah had to go and put down my mark and water one of the trees. The run started with a lots of excitement with three groups of hashers going different ways. “ah tell all yuh is that way….ah know Doon yuh know…he go head for the hills. “Oh my gosh….we have to go there?” and the walkers stood looking at the pack scrambling to make the almost 90 degree hill. The younger ones took the early pase but not without the core and experience hashers right behind them. “My god…..this is not a run, this is hill climbing…..like we training for fusion” and 20 minutes into the run, the youngsters were quiet and started to fall back in line. It was up and up and up and up….through the winding track….. “ahh….thank god we reach to the top” and in one minute a right turn continuing up and up and up again. It was really challenging as it was also very humid but not having the direct sunlight helped to reach to the top and then it was down again. “Boy….all yuh tell me that it will not be hard…..this very hard…..ah have to train for this”. Another virgin who was seen warming up before the start could not be found with the front pack, I dropped to the second pack and he was not there and….I know he is fit and a gym freak but hashing does challenge you so he was nowhere to be found and the man who brought him struggling to ensure that he was ahead of him all the time…..what a friend, and we thought that was a good selection for POOFTER!. We eventually came down to the road and crossed onto the Tyrico beach running along the cost but was short as it brought us back to the road with a right turn that went up and up and up again. “boy not me and that hill nah” one of the “foursome fearsome” crew stated looking up at the hills in disgust. He choose to take the road as his experience tells him that the trail must come out further up and on the road again. This second hill although not as bad as the first did take all the energy out of me as some commented that I looked as though I was “catching meh tail”…….that was a fact, under the condition and I not do better. We eventually came out on the road and it was confusing and hashers were already coming from that direction, we had to go further up and make a left turn on to the beach and then back on the road. If you see short cuts, even the a few front runners took the opportunity to short cut and the ON ON IN was right on the bend heading back to the road. I estimated that it was a two miles run in on the road and we all struggled in with the home run. Everyone was tired and it took just about one hour and twenty minutes for the first pack and two hours for the other to get in.

Eventually, everyone look relaxed again with the background music by the DJ adding to that couple with the beers……things was looking good and with a good sweat……there were no excuse to have a few beer!. The DOWN DOWN started, with hashers hearing all that was said as the microphone was available from the DJ that made it very entertaining. The hares were call up to do the rituals of celebrating by having the down down and they all line up and did not waste time in drinking. The virgins were next and has become customary to every hash, about 10 virgins all lined to giving their names and who made them come….off course, the hashers commented and shouted when the virgin males had their turn…..it was always the female virgins that always get the nod of approval and not without the male hashers asking for phone numbers. The new shoes possee came up next and it was Brian, Joseph and Marlon doing it right and it was a crowd pleaser as usual. And then there was the poofter……….Reid for false advertising having his name on the street sign “Reid Lane”, Mandy for being late for the beer stop, Devon for loosing Brian a virgin who he brought on the trail, Jennifer for wearing her bunny rabbit outfit and Rishi who is a national mountain bike champion for going with the walkers. “Devon….. Devon…..Devon……. Devon” hashers shouted giving the signal that he was the poofter and so he wore the stink poofter shirt and drank the beer out of the potty.

It was Doon’s birthday and we had the traditional celebration of baking the cake live on site. Doon was call on to kneel and was blind folded by the head baker and then with 4 bakers each breaking two eggs each on Doon’s head….and then came the flour, a 5kg bag was thrown on Doon’s head. It was an amazing site and fun….and Doon celebrated well but not without the astonishment of all the virgins and new hashers who never experienced this celebration before. And then the lime, the food came…….and it was very good, most staying back to support Doon, with beers running….yes about 10 kegs and cake for desert and it party under the tents…dancing to some good music, hashers style.


Another GREAT HASH……with a fantastic location and ambience bringing the hashers together to have a good time. Thanks to Doon and his team for entertaining the hashers with a good run, music, food and a great location. It was also pleasing to see another bunch of young people coming to the hash and truly enjoying it, yes…..we had 15 virgins, thanks to the hasher who continue to encourage new ones especially Devon and Nigel who stood out although Nigel focussed on bring a lovely bunch of ladies and Devon bring a bunch of young men.

Line Break - On-On Feet

I warned her not to.  I assured her it was a mistake.  See the error in your ways, I said.  Don’t go towards the light.  As she approached me on the trail, I was sure it was one of those situations where you think the person if front of you is talking to you, but they’re really talking to their best friend who happens to be standing right behind you.  But no, she grabbed me by the arm, and asked me to write it up.  And so here I am, putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and writing and rambling away as I’ve been assured I’m supposed to do. 

I’m the first to admit I have no idea what I’m doing here, so let’s just go with it and find out what happens together.  #762 (just my third hash – oh the memories) came and went without the “hills and clouds” of Paramin or the “washouts, course shortenings, and confused-looking Enrique standing on the side of the hill deciding whether to drive through the flashflood” of Caura.  There was just some good old-fashioned running through the bush, splashing through rivers, and jogging through the middle of a football game.  Oh – and just a little bit of getting the shit scared out of us by un-tethered dogs. 

So what happened…let’s see.  To start, there was the usual “It’s short.  No hills,” assurances of the HM and Hares, and then there was the ½ hour detour in the complete wrong direction before finally getting our noses on the right trail.  Once that was accomplished, the game was on (on)!  I don’t think anyone can say that the terrain wasn’t varied this time.  We scrambled over rocks, down embankments, up hills, ran from the aforementioned dogs, and jogged down Santa Barbarba Road on in. 

The pack stayed together fairly well this time, led by the trusty (or not) Hares.  I hear there was yet another snake sighting, but I never heard it to be confirmed, so I’m likely to treat it as an un-urban legend. 

The jog through town and the long-cut around the football field (follow the paper fellow hashers – that’s where it led) brought a hint of a Monday afternoon to this hash, and then it was on in to the after-hash party where it was chicken sandwiches, ubiquitous kegs of beer, birthday cake (for Victor!  Happy Birthday!), and cookies (cooked by Ginger!  Phenomenal!  Do I smell a new hash tradition?).  Although I’m sure the party went well into the night (I hear that the local bar didn’t know what hit them) I had to leave early and bring my virgins with me so they wouldn’t be scarred.  Don’t worry – I will be sure to make them come again in 2 weeks. 

So that’s about all I have.  Michelle, are you regretting your decision yet?  I tried.  I really did.   And I think most of it made sense…didn’t it?  Maracas/St. Joseph is gone but not entirely forgotten.  We laughed, we cried, we ate, we drank.  I’m sure at least a few of us bled a little.  But at the end of the day, the bush conceded and we cried victory.  On on!

Line Break - On-On Feet

Michelle's Mess

I used to wonder why Zam started counting down halfway thru his year, now I know.  With only 4 more runs left to go, the countdown is definitely on on.
The hares, with some local help thrown in, managed to find some virgin territory in what has been a much hashed area.  The parking site was new though and there was some delay while we waited for all late comers to get parked.  The run itself was a good mix of hill, rivers and road running and back to the run site well before dark. The good news was, no one got lost and Smithy treated us to some cake and souse for his birthday.  Apparently, plenty people on the Hash born in October so I hope we’ll be treated to some more bday cake and souse on the next run.
On another note, we’re looking for a venue for the Hash Christmas party. Anyone with sensible suggestions, or a venue, please let me know. On On

Virgins:       Welcome: Cory, Raza, Chris, Edward, Jamilla, Jesse, Melanie, Marisol, Troy, Rena

Birthdays: Happy Birthday Dawn and Victor (Smithy). Hope you have many many more.

Poofters:  Doon for interrupting the run to tie Nella’s shoe lace and making a mess of it; the Hares, for not posting any hash signs on the main road, and Smithy, a Hare, for stopping to chat up some random female on the roadside and as a result, failing to direct the pack on the correct trail.  Smithy got the popular vote, so he was given his 3rd straight down down for the evening.  Now that he’s approaching 70, I hope he was able to enjoy the rest of the night. ON ON
