RUN: #836
SITE: Mission Bay, Toco
HARES: Marlon & Devon
SCRIBE: ” “

“Boy, ah wonder how the Hash will be, it far and a lot of hashers out of the country, Ah lot of the core hashers gone to celebrate with a fellow hasher who is tying the knot in the USA that weekend” . Those were the comments around town leading up to the hash. We wish Mike and his wife all the best in their marriage and hope that they both continue to keep hashing as part of their commitment for life. Mike was true Trini and has been a very passionate hasher during his time in Trinidad.

Everyone who had planned to go to Toco was curious to see the turn out but this being a tradi-tional anniversary run in would have seen the traditional supporters especially those who made it a weekend in Toco. The Hares looked disappointed as I arrived there at 3.15pm with 2 others in my car. Only a few people around arriving before me but within the next 20 minutes, there were a trail of cars and when they all parked and came out, the turn out was looking better than we thought.

“Marlon, are we to expect the same shit run?” was a popular comment by the regular heckling hashers but the hares took it in good stride saying that it will be a surprised run. Some women looking to see where they could “take ah quick leak” and there was, next door, 3 aged guys drinking beers and holding the keys to the male & female washroom at $2.00 per pop but it was worth it. The Hash was called and the hares were introduced with the surprised addition of 2 beautiful teenaged girls…….”Devon paid those girls big bucks to make an appearance” was the shout from a hasher.

The Run

“ON ON….this way, it have to be down the beach”……most heading to the shoreline , some going right and some left but no paper. Back to the road, “let us follow the locals, they know the way” so the majority of the pack was head-ing right up the hill…….then a shout of “on on” from a few who were heading left so we turned back and headed left and right into the bush and they kept calling “ON ON” and then a defying silence…..no one calling and then you hear “checking” and something told me it was a set up so headed back onto the road and headed right further up as a female hasher said that some had gone straight and did not come back but the scamps were waiting for us to come up the hill then to say “checking …..no paper” All was confused until a hare said it was time to hit the trail and pointed right to where we were heading in the first place….and it was up and up and up.

We remembered the trail from last year and continued with the “On ON” calls until we met the others who were coming back saying “On Back” but quickly picked up on the right trail on the left that headed straight down to the river. “Tasha……whey all yuh?….al yuh wait for me”. These were the locals following the hashers but without the track shoes but rather with slippers that quickly burst and got left back.. “them people could really run, we cant even keep up with them”……”We don’t have the right shoes and I can’t run in slippers” shouted the fit young local male. It was down to the river and we made the left and we all were looking out for the trail on the left on the river bank as most hashers got lost at that spot last year.

And it was just over one hour into the run and we were heading back out onto the road when a talking back check shouted “back up dat way….al yuh cannot pass hear” a little 6 year old local shouted and it was the X behind the little shop. We followed the paper back up the hill and it was up and up again, be-hind the houses and around them until we came back on to the road that we were previously and this lead to confusion and we hit the road without the ON ON IN. Most were tired and frustrated at that time to go back and find the trail so we headed back in. Only a few made the last part where the ON ON In was and a beer stop but it could have better set and marked but we had a good sweat.

And then the Down Down

The Hasher thought that it was more or less the same run from last year and a very confusing end but they had a relatively good sweat.

Virgins: We are always happy to see new hashers : Mical, Carlos, Brian, Rui, Liz, Curtis, Choo

New Shoes: these were the people who looked forward to getting a FREE beer poured into their shoe and drinking it down…dowm— Asha, Bjorne, Don, Mical

POOFTER Nominees:
1. Jeremey, Dillion, Robert, Mathew, — Leaving the run to join some girls in the pool by the river mouth and they are average 14 years?
2. Dingo — Wearing a “hares” T-shirt but was not a hare. He left early.
3. Treva —For peeing on the trail
4. Sophia – Taking a bath with one 400ml bottle of water.

The Poofter

And it was the hares Marlon/Devon…..joint POOFTERS
For setting a “shitty run” and with very little paper on the trail. And they had two big bags of paper still in their possession

Birthday

Jeannine, Ricky and Christian

808 May 26, 2012 Colin, Ashe, & Iron Lady Salybia Beach, Toco Caramel

Line Break - On-On Feet

The Hash Run of The Hare 2012

Salybia Beach, Toco was the scene for Hash Run 808 which was, ‘The Hash Run of The Hare 2012 – Colin’.

For some reason or reasons, no one seems interested in setting a run with this guy. Maybe Gerry’s comment about Colin spending time in prison with his hunter partner has credence or what?

Anyways, after the Iron Lady made subtle remarks followed by her clarion call for peace reminiscent of the hippie movement in the 1960s, off we went into Virgin Territory with “Bush this thick”. After 10mins, we eventually found the trail 10meters inside, while it paralleled the main road. Cries of ON ON were distant and low pitched due to the steep descending which many a-times separated we the hounds and left us fragmented.  Inevitably, we arrived on the coast with its picturesque combination of rocky and sandy coastline along with stunning vistas of the Caribbean Sea. Although, due to the recent competitive nature of the Hash, I don’t think many recognized the scenery.

Back onto the main road where as with any good Hash, a well placed check allowed us all to regroup and after some empty checks we were back on paper which led us uphill to “Bush this thick.”  It was atop this hill that our Poofter came since he was caught holding on to a tree gasping for air. This act of indulgence was unacceptable since he has been doing adventure treks each weekend.

Admittedly, throughout the Run and even in “Bush this Thick,” we were never more than 500m from the roadway and so came the surprised, “ON IN” after 50mins of Hashing.

Many Hashers grabbed a beer and ran straight into the cool Caribbean waters where the liming began and later took us to a village bar late into a well spent evening.

Many thanks to Colin for making that tremendous effort in setting a Run way up in Toco and for hosting us. I believed we all had a wonderful time. ON ON!

Line Break - On-On Feet

From the Office of the Iron Lady

Toco….Toco…..This run was advertised on the Hash Site as the Avengers Run, so I say realllllllllllllllll super heroes coming out. So I decided to bring my white dove to portray the spirit of Peace but then I got a call from Colin at 3.00 pm on Friday evening saying that he needed hares for the run…I said ok and advised the man who does iron meh pants we going Toco earlier Saturday to set the run with Colin. We set the run, it was about an hour but it was good. Let there be Peace on this Hash and let it begin with all ah we……Let there be Peace on this Hash the Peace that was meant to be, with the Iron Lady as the Hash Master hashers all ah we, let us run with each other in perfect harmony.

Welcome to our virgins, it was nice to have you

Happy Birthday: Sharon (Central Posse), Janelle

Poofter: Mark Nuzum (Numbnuts) for saying he was tired on the trail and having Ivan hear that, Ivan’s reply was “boy you training with me on weekends when you go hikes, you shouldn’t be tired”.

Line Break - On-On Feet

Hey everyone! First time hasher here, feel free to call me De Imposter. First of all I must say that I had a really great first hashing experience. The trail was beautiful, the lime was great, and the beers at the end were a nice touch. I mean really, what else could a girl ask for?

Now before starting the hash, I knew that there were a few things that I would have to do in order to prepare for my experience. First of all, I knew that I would have to work on my fitness. I remember a friend of mine once telling me about his first hash experience where he was hunched over in the mud, completely exhausted, trying his very best not to vomit. This is about the time that his dentist, who is about twice his age, zoomed past him shouting condescending words of encouragement. Talk about embarrassing. Nobody, after all, wants to be THAT person passing out in the bush on their first run! I also knew that I would have to work on my beer chugging skills- the initiation rites of the hashing world, after all, are quite the thing of legend.

The one thing that I was totally unprepared for, however, was that I was about to be immersed in a foreign language, and to not understand this strange language would certainly lead to being totally and completely lost ‘in de bush’. As echoes of “on on” and “on off” boomed throughout the trail, some other unprepared newbie friends and myself tried to decipher the code. When we finally felt comfortable in the new lingo we sent one of our buds, Stray Kat, out to the front to give it a go. After loudly and proudly bawling out “On left!”, Stray Kat was met with many harsh stares and cut eyes from some of the senior hashers. We then retreated to the middle of the pack and decided to let the others deal with the whole “on on off” business. Maybe zoning out during the pre hash de briefing was not such a good idea after all.

All in all, my first hash was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back again sometime in the not too distant future. My advice for newbies would be to come prepared to have fun, go at your own pace, and don’t ever, EVER, wear new shoes. Consider yourself warned.

Mahashma's Meditations

"missing in action"

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.>
