RUN: #802                SCRIBE: Mr Speaker            RUN SITE: Tacariga

DATE: March 3, 2012      HARES: Marlon Newallo, Sahadeo, Victor Smith and Eggy

This was the weekend when the Vote of No Confidence against the Iron Lady was the main item on the country’s agenda and it had created widespread national interest. However, before the motion was to be dealt with, she called all the faithful to a walkabout in the Tacarigua Constituency. This was to gather popular support as she sought to defeat the motion against her.

The crowds were there in their numbers and we all expected a sea of yellow jerseys.  However, the four main supporters (she called them hares) who were to spearhead the walkabout were wearing white jerseys and this seemed curious especially as one was known to be a COP.

And so at the appointed hour, the crowd set off on the walkabout. It soon became apparent that this regime did not know what they were about – No sense of direction – ever so often they were losing their way and had to turn back and the people were becoming frustrated. Talk about missteps! At some stages, the walkabout truly reflected life in the country – a long uphill struggle. For some, the river presented an opportunity to ease their daily frustration with WASA as they gleefully had a bath. The roads that were traversed during the walkabout were in a deplorable condition and the Minister of Works was strangely silent. Eventually everyone made their way back from the walkabout.

No sooner had they returned, the supporters got down to the eats and drinks that were available for consumption. Clearly, the rum and roti politics is still with us.

The time was approaching for the motion to be dealt with by the House. This was when the Hon.Ashe, Minister of Works was caught trying to set up the Speaker. However, he is in the Iron Lady’s good books and so he escaped being sent before the Privileges Committee.  Arguments started flying left and right, for and against the motion. The Iron Lady called on all the visitors to come forward and show themselves (she called them virgins) and she said that this was clear evidence of the good work being done by her Minister of Tourism. The Opposition pointed to the fact that things had become so tough in the land that some of the Iron Lady’s supporters were barefooted on the walkabout as they could not afford to buy shoes. The Iron Lady was criticized over her published itinerary of overseas trips to International Hash Conferences in Grenada in April and Panama in June –they say “like she always on a plane.” Meanwhile, an old has been politician named Nevie sat alongside the Iron Lady throughout the proceedings and she explained that she doesn’t like to be too far from Booze.

Word went around that Calder Hart was present and the Iron Lady initiated steps to have him apprehended but it turned out that it was an old hasher from Barbados and he is called Hart. She tried to save face by commending him for buying his new sneakers in T&T and so helping out the local economy.  As expected, the spectre of corruption reared its ugly head as the Member for the Toco Constituency was accused of having individuals set a hash in the Tacarigua Constituency and he simply used his vast resources to buy it over. It was also reported to the Speaker that there was an altercation between two individuals in the vicinity of the proceedings and someone named Griffith was overheard saying that he could take on cocks at any time. Many were surprised at this and the Speaker promised an investigation into the matter.

Lee was most present walking around speaking to anyone who would listen but no one got into a Row with him – how could this motion ever succeed ?

At the end of it all, the Iron Lady stood tall (if that is really possible?) stating that notwithstanding the assortment of Mismanagement Ministers, her partnership was strong and she reiterated her earlier pronouncement that the motion was frivolous, vexatious and without substance. She asserted in no uncertain terms that in her administration, Ashe worth Jack and he will maintain his position which will always be on TOP.

Dishonourable Members, the House now stands adjourned to Arima on March 17 2012.

P.S.  A number of the young female members did catch the Speaker’s eye but it    appeared that they did not wish to speak.

The Speaker also reported not hearing anyone “beg to move” but before he knew it, members had moved to the constituency office at Lance Bar.

Line Break - On-On Feet

What a small group turned up for the Tacarigua hash! Though ‘Tacarigua’ doesn’t sound particularly exciting, I discovered that the real reason for the low turnout was a football match. Manchester United versus Barcelona. Sure enough, just before the start of the hash, about ten male hashers were roaring approval from a house opposite the Dinsley Park where we were gathered. What was the score? I wasn’t too sure.

Eventually they poured out of the house, and the run began. Man, the start was hard-core urban. The day was seriously hot and we walked for a good fifteen minutes through the Dinsley suburbs, twisting and turning through the hot streets. We eventually passed a Sports Bar where there was more male roaring, though this time the chant was “Barca! Barca!” Everyone was guessing the score but no one could really know. As we climbed the hill past Hutt Shutts (what a stupid name), and started back down, we finally started to leave suburban Tacarigua and venture into the foothills of the Northern Range.

The grass eventually morphed into trees and we arrived in one area where there were numerous mango, cherry and even sapodilla trees. After Doon pointed out the cherries, people started grabbing branches to pick. Yum, quick shot of Vitamin C! A short distance from there, we came across a strange symbol that the hares said indicated a ‘treasure’. David Morand peeked down in the cool depths of a canal because we were certain that it must be a case of beers, but it was Nevie who found a tiny case on a nylon string that was hanging from a nearby tree. The treasure ended up being pretty fabulous though. Beer chits!

It was mostly uphill from there and when we reached the summit of the hill and looked down, the view was breathtaking! East Trinidad lay below us: the rooftops, the vast green expanse of Orange Grove and, wait. . .on the right, flying high above everything else, was Jack Warner’s T&T flag. Wow, he made the flag that big for a reason. You cyar miss its red, waving glory.

By the time some of us were cresting a second hill, we looked to our right and there were some other hashers now descending the first! We later learned that they had stopped to climb a tower to take in the view. Talk about converting the hash into an excursion! Anyway, everyone was still so hot that there wasn’t much running going on. Finally there was relief when we entered some real forest. There, it was dim, dark green and wonderfully cool. We made our way across and along a tiny stream and had to ask, where was the mighty Caura River?! It was so hot! You couldn’t do more than dirty your shoes in that muddy stream.

Just when we had resigned ourselves to missing the Caura entirely, it appeared below us, bubbling noisily. Some sank thankfully into the clean, shallow water, but the hares urged us on, saying there was a better pool ahead. So we splashed on through the river and found several places to really dip down and enjoy the cool water. After leaving the Caura, the forest ended soon after and then it was a short trek through the suburban jungle back to our cars.

In keeping with Indian Arrival Day, the ‘down-down’ had dancing ladies in Indian wear, Ash smartly dressed in a kurta and free curry! There were maybe three virgins, and only one was older than 12. A special FFF award was given to Sheldon but since it was supposed to represent the fastest person on the hash, a lot of us agreed that Doon, aka the Flying Indian, should have definitely won. It seems that Mumtaz and Martin mistook “Noooooo” for agreeable noise. Next time, we’ll have to zip it so the right man can win. The hares hilariously won the Poofter for sporting t-shirts that said the date of their hash was 28th June. Not too sure how they shared the smelly jersey but each had to drink beer from a PVC pipe armband. Only Victor was skillful enough to gulp down most of it instead of pouring it all over himself!

TAZ’s Twists & Turns

Tacarigua is a town in the East-West Corridor of Trinidad and Tobago, located east of Tunapuna and north of Trincity. It is on the banks of the Tacarigua River. It is located between Tunapuna and Arouca and is governed by the Tunapuna-Piarco Regional Corporation.

Tacarigua was originally a Spanish encomienda, prior to the relocation of the Amerindians to Arima in 1789. Some of the first Mosques were built at Tacarigua in 1850. It was Indian Arrival Weekend and our Hash Master Mahashma was looking for enlightenment in our sister aisle Tobago so the Hares ensured we found our own enlightenment by setting a Ball Buster Run which was over 2 hours and our FFF hashers (Fit… Fast…Furious) kept on going to the end. It was a good run.…nice terrain ….down downs included an Indian Dance by some of our female Hashers and the bar lime at Lance Bar was even better with Tassa drumming and DDBH (drunk dancing by Hashers)….Lets Celebrate Life…On On

The only virgins were Gillian and Zarad but incredibly some regular Hashers displayed their new shoes on the Hash ……….. Eggy, Martin and Harper.

Out of all the nominations for the Poofter Award it was unanimous decision that the Hares should be bestowed this prestigious award as they got the date of the run printed incorrectly on their t-shirts.

Now a new award was introduced: 3 F’s (Fit, Fast & Furious) Award: So many nominations: Harper, Doon (the Flying Indian), Blunden, Harty, Sheldon (feet like Shaka), David Morand, and Ash (the Handsome Stud). The award was bestowed upon Sheldon.

Hash Lingo

Virgins take note of the meaning of these signs!!!

  1. While on the trail CALL “ON ON” when you see bits of shredded paper/flour! It helps those behind/possibly lost hashers.
  2. “O” – check for the correct trail!
  3. “X” – you’re on the wrong trail! Go back to the check point and start again.
  4. “ON PASS” – to pass someone on the trail.
  5. “ON BACK” – on the wrong trail, you may have reached an “X“….turn back to the check point “O“.
  6. “On OFF” – you’re off the correct trail.
  7. When you are almost in you would see: “ON IN” pointing to the correct direction.
  8. For those who can’t keep up with the ‘3F’s’ (FIT, FAST AND FURIOUS) pack then just go with the ‘Backpackers’  (SMART) pack who just let them do all the work.>
