760 September 24, 2010 The Fockers Turtle Beach, Tobago Legend of the Fall


Line Break - On-On Feet

TOBAGONE….
…..but not forgotten is the next bit. However, the truth is, a lot of it is given the quantity of alcohol I consumed. Nevertheless, it is my dubious responsibility to chronicle the first run so my apologies if the ramble below bears no resemblance to the truth. Actually, I don’t care at all but it was a nice thing to say wasn’t it?

The portents were not good…. I kept asking who the hares were and people would point out Justin, or Gerry…disturbing enough I know …but of more concern was the fact that they were there, liming with us at Johnsons, and it was early afternoon. All hares have their idiosyncratic traits but you can usually rely on them to drag their wretched mortal coils out of their filth and pestilence ridden pits on the morning of the hash and go and set the bloody run! Not this lot…were they going to set it by helicopter (nearly said chopper then but the Fockers already have delusions of grandeur in that department)..ah well, don’t usually drink before a hash but open one for me please.

Blunden must have had similar feelings of foreboding which he had obviously assuaged by downing healthy doses of alcoholic medicaments. He was demonstrating a strange pelvic manoeuvre accompanied by a repetitive questioning of one’s parentage on the male side. No matter, we found ourselves at  a shaded beachfront  and assembled to hear what the Flockers(the collective noun for a bunch of Fockers)would say. Actually didn’t …hear them…I mean does anyone really listen to the BS that is always spouted at the start of a run but I assume that it involved platitusdes about absence of altitude, sodden earth, etc. One thing that was different was the presence of a whole set of youth dem which I later found out were the scouts. Bedecked in red, I never ascertained why they were there and I am sure, having done the run, they felt the same.

Off the baying masses went, out of the shade and into the sun….HNA (hot no arse) …and immediately  one set of confusion leading, finally out of desperation, to us all entering a fenced field with seemingly no way out….but, of course there was, cunning Fock people…the fence could be overcome by rolling under it. I wasn’t close enough to determine if this was the result of a flash of inspiration by a hasher or if someone fell over and discovered it by luck.

Then though varied terrain with some welcome relief from the sun before we embarked on a brutal hill climb led by the intrepid Mystery(who later in the weekend treated those fortunate enough to be on his bus to a medley of his calypso hits).  I am told that the hill brought Tante Merle to her knees…Hubby nowhere to be seen (Who’s your Grandaddy)…she was saved by Tosca who carried her up the slope.

However, despite being even more HNA by the time we reach the top….well, give dem Fock lot credit..what a beautiful site . Superb views, some refreshment and a place apparently where none other than Robert Nestor Marley stayed . Redemption Song for de hares…of course, it didn’t impress Ash who gave the view short shrift and snuck off hoping to get a jump on the pack. Fortunately, he was caught by a puzzling false trail (which also , later caught your honourable scribe) and his sneaky ploy was to no avail.Next time Ash, smell the roses and write a poem.

And it was ,literally, downhill from there … a long descent with another set of stunning views which must have unsettled your scribe as an encounter with a tree root produced a spectacular swallow dive fall, witnessed by one of the boy scouts. Those of you that have seen Legends of the Fall will know that Brad Pitt was in it …. So I thought I would impersonate him later to attract a foxy hasherette ..but , So you think you’re Brad Pitt, that don’t impress me much….whatever happened to Shania Twain by the way?

Shaken, but not stirred, I managed to complete the on-in without too much ignominy, apart from not being able to catch Blunderbus… fortunately, Andre who takes love of his job to amazing levels, had not consumed all of the beer and the afer-run lime was all worth it. Ray”Kilimanjaro” Weaver (explanation, Blunden said he been up Kilimanjaro), Randall “Boycott de Fockers” Lyon listening to his tranny(remember when they were called that), Mahashma “Ash for Pooftah oops”  Gandhi… characters all…. before we were ordered on to de buses and  a mercifully short singsong ensued.
So two thumbs up..you Fockers…and you even get to choose where!

761 September 25, 2010 The Fearsome Threesome + 1 Les Couteaux, Tobago Hash Slut

It was Saturday and it was damn hot. The hashers slowly gathered to meet de bus. It was 9:30 and ah lot ah hashers still had pillow marks on their faces.
For some reason, ah felt like ah stuffed pig.  Ah had less than ah case ah beers, some pepsi, water, ah healthy dinner and dessert, so ah have no idea why ah feel like ah macawel! Anyway, ah had ah little room for a beer before going in de bus.

Our bus led de way to de hash site without directions, so we had to stop ah couple times to make sure we reach de right place.

We reach de hash site, in real hot sun wid hills all about. Ah could hardly open meh eyes wid dat hot sun. The hares rest ah Persy on de Fockers and politely told them “Up Yours, Fockers!” Dey real have plenty love on de hash, boy!

The hares said dat de hash relatively flat….yeah right! Meh belly relatively flat!  Anyway, we start de hash and after about 2 minutes we get our shoes wet going through de river. There were notable non-starters, eg Justin, Tim, Gerry. Now ah find out  that I am the scribe. Ah done tell ya dat I feel like ah well fed macawel, so ya know ah scribing from de back. The bad ting about dat is dat ah go see all de assholes. I doh mind seeing some good female specimens.

Ah must admit, it was beautiful terrain. In de first 30 minutes, we stick close to de river and weaved through some heavy bush. Normally, ah does feel good when dey have river on de hash because ah get a little extra  energy, but today ah is ah macawel. I wasn’t alone. Dey had plenty moans, grunts, hands on hips even before we reach any hills. It was definitely de morning after a merry night before. Tourist leggo Friday night, but hungover in dey wire now.

Yours truly looking for de shortcut because meh shoes done wet and heavy. Ah pass through de river ah couple times and almost bus meh tail on dem slippery rocks. Ya know when ya take ya time, ya does fall like ah breadfruit!!

Now, we start to go uphill in this damn hot sun. Dat hare, Mark, tells us to go pass two Xs and go downhill to de river. After going through some thick bush, dey tell we to  go back up hill. Ah get a little vex because ah bun already, and ah had to drag meh sorry ass up the damn hill. My tongue done now touching meh shoes!! Dem hares have smile on dey faces.

Ah tink we are now inside for a little more than 1 hour and reach ah point where ah had to choose. Do I turn right and go uphill or do I go downhill and get to de ON IN?  Well, I turned right, look up and then decided dat de macawel should go downhill. I was in de river wid a beer in my hand 15 minutes later . I had plenty company but the dem others still up de hill. Ah real happy ah in de river old talking and drinking.

Apparently, it was ah serious hill and Zam led them astray further up the hill.
De poor hashers had to go down and back up another trail. Dis was not enough. Some also got ah thorough cussing from an mad man who did not like anybody on he land. De hashers were just following the trail.

Those who did dat last part reach de river looking real exhausted and drop straight in de water. Hashers relaxing in de water, washing dey shoes, sitting and ah cyah imagine what else. I kept meh face out the water.

Ah find de hash was real good. The terrain was beautiful, dem lazy hashers get ah shortcut and de others get dey share of exercise. De next mission: How not to get dem bus seats wet. De driver lay down de rules. ON ON to Pigeon Pt, but dat is another story.

Hash Tobago 2010

Whew! Can’t believe that Tobago has come and gone like a thief in the night. After some weeks of organizing and, I guess, the usual minor controversy (read Randol and runsites), the weekend flowed smoothly.  From the Thursday nite, thru Friday and the tourist party – Ski was so determined to win, she made no less than 3 costume changes (she still didn’t win), to Saturday’s run and then lime at Pigeon Point, it turned out to be a fun, easy going weekend.   The music, compliments Ski, played and the hashers drank and ran and drank and ran and then drank some more.  But then, that’s what a Hashing Tobago weekend is all about.  So with good weather, three excellent runs, good company, good music, good food and a cold drink always at hand, I think it is safe to say that a good time was certainly had by all!  

It would be remiss of me not to thank again, Blue Waters and Pradeep and Eggie for their generous support, Martin for his assistance, Allan for all his hard work (no sleeping on the couch for the rest of  the year baby) and all those who worked behind the scenes to make the weekend a success.  It was much appreciated.

Now I can say Yeah!  It’s ON ON to next year.

Poofter Awards: Religious Adviser – Ashe performed the honors.

The Ass HM Arthur was the hot crowd favorite and he won by a mile.

2010 Tobago Overview
Tall dark and Havesome

Another year, another Tobago weekend. One thing is sure, it is never the same. The weekend is always a success regardless of any hiccups or contentions. This weekend takes long to arrive but goes so quickly.

The weekend started off for most on the Thursday. The early arrivals played golf, limed around, imbibed or did what hashers do best, have oral diaorrhea.

For some reason the early arrivals seem to always have an ulterior motive. So it was that some went diving and some played golf. As the day wore on more and more Hashers arrived. A notable absentee on the day was the Hash Cash. He was probably detained by an emergency root canal, grandparent duties or Ms. Maraval not wanting to miss a call-in opportunity.

So the order of the day was beers and other beverages. I have noted how more and more hashers are into stronger stuff, especially vodka. We used to be a beer drinking organization. I wonder what Dear departed Peter would say about this? Roy on the other hand would say These “@#%$!*&^” hashers only ” #@%$&^%!” …..”&^%#$@” or words to that effect.

The allocation of who set which run was a topic of conversation. Randall was long on displeasure. This is the only known time in history that the opposite of short is used in reference to Randall. The runs themselves have their own scribes so I will not steal anyone’s thunder.

The Friday morning got off  to a very slow start. I looked out and saw the son of a hasher on the swing chair all by himself. He looked as if he was put out of the room because his parent got lucky. I subsequently spoke to the parent who explained that, that was not the case.

Hashers slowly emerged from their rooms but stayed clear of the beers until Allan appeared and offered  to buy a rounds and even then there were not many takers.

The Saturday  was the next run which started just after eleven in the morning and saw hashers out in the midday sun. After the run it was off to Pigeon Point Heritage Park Beach Facilities. Parched tired hashers descended on Pigeon point and ate drank and splashed and danced.

Music played and hashers danced and Ms. Maraval did a split to the amazement of everyone including her husband. Justin was giving Frisbee lessons to the children and other hashers, some of whom are gender challenged. As Justin says “It is all in the wrist….”

The last day saw a small group come out to take part in the live run that was set by Boobs and Curtis. Before I go further I would like to take you back. A couple years ago the brother of a used to be regular hasher said that “Hashers are not bright…” and I agreed with him many people disagreed. The live run proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that he was right.

Fifteen minutes into the run the hashers  came upon an arrow and some writing in flour and a number of them came back to Johnstons thinking that it was “ON IN”. When the hares came back they informed us that they wrote “This Way” and put an arrow. Now, tell me people how could “This way”  be mistaken for ON IN. When you hear who the culprits are you would probably stop eating burgers, or listening to call in programs or conclude that the protective services cannot protect you.

The weekend also saw the christening of the Hash Repellant. This is a male hasher who went to Shades (THE night spot in the area) and managed to keep women away from the voracious bunch of male hashers. The gentleman’s repellant ability was stronger  than any of the charms of the male chick magnets that were out that night. Women just did not want to be where he was. And so it was that wherever he was in the night spot was devoid of women.

The weekend also saw a precedent being set and also showed that we care for our own. Andre (Beer man) looks forward to the Tobago weekend so that he could hash and then lime. The hashes in Trinidad do not permit this. And so it was that on the first run he was unable to finish and he was duly carried bodily for the last bit of the run. I am not sure if it was the last ten minutes or ten yards. Yes we do care and look after our own. The real clincher to this story is the reason he was unable to complete the run on his own. It is the first time that I have heard of this but suffice it to say that he “sprained his tongue”

The weekend ended prematurely as the departure times were spread and the exodus started from around mid morning. Another enjoyable weekend ended.

Tantie Merle Hash Overview Tobago 2010

DATE:      Saturday 25th Sept. 2010         HARES:    Randal, Zam, Brian Dookie, Mark (Puddy)

Tantie Merle:     Yes dahling, but ah fine de water kinda rough so ah not goin’ in de deep but ah enjoyin’ de sea baht …..
Miss Jean:         But what all yuh doin’ odderwise..?
Tantie Merle:     Well gyrl, lemme tell yuh about what happenin’ wit me and dem Hashers……

Fust, I was vex when ah had a 2 hour delay in  de airport coming here but once ah reach everyting was irie becuz de weather nice, sun shining an’ de Hashers merry  and jolly.   Ah did de fust run wid dem but ah went wit meh fast self and playin’ Miss Fit an’ stayin’ in front – so much so dat dem hashers was sayin’ tings like’ ""  oh gorm , since yuh becom ah granny like yuh get fitter!   an’  "but Tantie ah real impress wit you"   Well , meh dear, it last until dey had a "bad" hill –  every hill we come to ah ask if it is de bad hill becuz we was warned before about ah bad hill…. but eventually I meet up with de Bad hill and ah was going good until ah reach 3/4 and ah start to get giddy an’ meh heart start to beat fast fast and ah start to get nauseous and ah had to lie down …de Hashers behind me was concerned but one ah dem called Tosca decide dat he go put me on he back and haul me up de rest de mountain…Well  yuh know yuh gyrl will accept de offer becuz de fella not bad looking and he young and strong so ah jump on he back and we gorn up de hill until we reach de top which was real real nice wit plenty views and de people up dere say Bob Marley used to come up dere and compose he songs….
Dey had a beer stop dere but people just take and run …….but de walk back down to the starting site was real nice an ‘ scenic…

So anyways, de next day now  is anodder run – de wedder hot, hot and dey choose to run all around 10 – 11 o’clock would you believe dis ting Jean?!!!so de buses reach de site which  is Les Couteaux …
Miss Jean:      Yuh mean Lick -a – toe!  It pronounce Lick-a- toe!
Tantie Merle:  Ok – lick a- toe …….so we assemble at de site with de Hares an’ dem who tek orf de shirt to show we a t – shirt wit a dirty finger saying someting like 
‘UP – FINGER- TO DE FOCKERS"   – Well yuh gyul start to blush but ah shoulda expect dis kinda ah disrespect….. So we tek orf in de burning sun and head up de road
and it was nice running down de road but it was " where the bad hill"    because the back pack was warned about a steep hill/mountain that dey need to avoid and keep with PUDDY – ..so we come to one hill – "is dis de bad hill?"   no…  then we come to a second hill ; "is dis de bad hill?’  ah ask….as ah see people running up pell mell and next ting dey running back dong becuz it have a "X" at the top .. and de one call Zam asking me what is a ‘BAD HILL"  – ah answer : "one like dat one!"

So we running up and down, through plenty river banks – dat was de Courland River – come out on some bush – den back down on de river – in and out -in and out –
an’ den the Back Pack get de signal to take a left turn becuz the right was ‘DE BAD HILL"  …So we follow instructions and end up by de BEER TRUCK which park up by a nice stream where de had  a lotta dem who decide not to run like Christine & Co. and imagine some big hard back so-called fit runners like a Mister who name Dave Blunders who have a red red face an’ a big big belly , an’ annodder Mister name "Numbnuts"  (where he get dat name from – ah doh know – but it suit him)…decide to WIMP OUT and even beat we Back Pack to the end of the run!
Ah say but what is dis?!  How dey wimp out so?  Dey give some lame excuse and becuz dey damage deyself more by dropping de Hash Master stuff in the stream and get it wet and make she real vex, dey get Poofter. Poofter is when yuh do shit and yuh get to put on a nasty Poofter jersey and get beer trow on you……

So de real true true runners who like a challenge come in after so ah ask a MIster with a red face name Lorin what happen in de back dey an’ he say dey went up ‘DE BAD HILL" and it was real steep so yuh could imagine how much beer dey drink to recover!  So time to go but dey had to give de Poofters like Dookie/Zam/Blunders/Numbnuts a good licking on dey knees..An’ everybody had a good long laugh…  Den we hop on de bus to go to PIgeon Point for de lime afterwards but ah have to tell yuh Jean dat same Mister name Blunders – you know he drop he pants, show his white white bottom and wust yet spread he cheeks fuh all ah we to see – YES!  and he willy small small to boot!
He is a real mad man oui!

So after dat shock is only songs in bus wit calypso and ting..we reach Pigeon Point – get under de hut dey reserve and now de real lime start – is plenty grog, food , and music….Now de music start and Hashers start to dance and prance – some ah dem went in water to bade but I decide to stay and dance.   Well who tell meh to do dat!
Next ting I  know I get drag in to do someting like a Soul Train.. Well yuh gyul decide to go wit de fun and ah wit meh fast self and de a split ….How ah get back up – me ent know but ah manage – ah had all dem Hashers amaze oui!   Next ting de same Mister Blunders decide he going to have a small heart attack and can’t  breathe because he drinking non stop  and brandy too booth !  But he cetch heself and last I hear he check early o’clock next morning and buss it back to Trinidad …

So anyways, time to go back and people packing up because de buses coming for 6:00 pm but guess what – NO BUSES – de buses buss it elsewhere and diss we!  So Hashers decide to walk back to de hotel and not waste time waiting but ah was lucky to hop a lift on a pickup an’ get a drop at de entrance where one ah de buses arrive for me and odders to get on to go back to de hotel…l- in time to get dressed and have meh dinner – but ah was so tired ah eat and buss it in meh bed.  But ah hear dem die hards lime until 3:00 am oui!  

So dat was how it was in a coconut shell meh dear Jean – yuh gyurl Merle had a great time as usual but let meh tell yuh someting – some ah dem Hashers does complain how de Tobago Hash boring and dey ent comin’ becuz it Boring –but as ah  say – dem same people looking fuh odder people to make dem happy !  an’ de reason dey find it boring is becuz DEY ARE BORING PEOPLE DEM SELVES!   But nevah mind dahling – de Hash will always live ON AND ON AND ON!..

Miss Jean:     Dat is good to know Merle dahling…..OH GOD MERLE!  DUCK!  DEY HAVE ONE BIG WAVE BEHIND YUH!

(When last seen Tantie Merle was having mouth to mouth resuscitation on Store Bay by a handsome lifeguard and there was a smile on her face when she revived…)   ON ON

Tribute to Gregory

Death, oh death, when will you come

You have snatched our very Gregory, some call him “Rudder”    
A true hasher and friend he’ll be, always and forever
                    

Gregory dear friend, you fought the fight, you ran the race
All this and more you did at your very own pace
Thank you for your friendship which seemed to have no end
Not just a fellow hasher but a true friend

No sorrow, no more suffering, no more pain
The rewards of your life are now yours to gain
It is sad that we will no longer see your face
Alas we know you are in a better place

759 September 18, 2010 Cheerbabies meet the Choirboys Caura Mike Hale


Well yet again our illustrious HM has made a questionable decision, this time in choosing (forcing) me to write this trash. So, under duress, let me tell you what I remember from the hash two weeks ago (I am writing this at the last minute of course)….

So we’re heading into Caura – a great site for a hash except that it floods there even during dry season? It didn’t take long for the first river crossing as the road packed up with hashers trying to cross the river. Eventually, everyone (except Enrique) realized that 3 inches of water didn’t really pose a problem to drive across.

The most difficult aspect of the hash was coming next…parking. Limited space, too much mud, and too many hashers thinking they can drive better than the last guy we just pushed out of the mud. If you see someone stuck in the mud and being pushed out, pretty good bet that you should not decide to park there yourself….especially if you go buy the big 4×4 and put slicks on it????
As a frontrunner, I can’t tell you much about what happened during the run other than we went up a river and then down a road. I am sure there were lots of interesting parts that had to be skipped due to the rain and the late start?

The after lime was a good one with lots of free drinks (who sponsored and why?), and thankfully the rain had stopped by then. There was a great building there for the lime but I don’t know what that was to be honest – was it a house, art studio, warehouse, or future drug processing lab? Regardless it worked out great for the hash lime and we should go back there for a dry season run!

Run No. 759 – 18th September, 2010, Run Site: Caura

Hashers do it in any kinda weather! And that was so true for this last run in Caura. After heavy rainfall all morning, we were greeted by brown torrents of water gushing off the hillsides and across the roadway leading into Caura. Could our cars make it? Only the brave were up to the challenge, eh Enrique, ent Central Possee? Frantic calls from Wahid bout ‘I aint sure these directions right’ as there were now a few new rivers rushing across the road, causing some hashers to turn back. The driving thrill over, we all wondered if there was any paper left marking the trail. But no fear, the Hares, a hashing partnership of the Cheerbabies and Choirboys, for future reference – the Cheerboys or Choirbabies, led the pack off along a modified trail. Full credit to them for a good run under difficult conditions. Some kegs later, and after some tasty bake and buljol, the hunch of happy hashers headed home thru the hillsides! (heeheehee).

Welcome Virgins: Natasha, Lisa, Christian, Nikita and Icesis

New Shoes:  Andy Sutton and Vin Maharaj

Poofters: Christian Anderson for demolishing part of the mountainside and raining rocks down on an unsuspecting female hasher beneath him; Mike Hale, for damaging a perfectly good barbed wire fence, and Enrique, the winner, for turning back on the road because he was afraid to drive across some of the small steams running over the roadway.

758 September 4, 2010 Wahid Lopez/Ricky & Jenny Tang/Susan Reece Paramin Pinkee


So here we are again…another Hash Saturday and what a day it is! In the midst of a very intense week of rain, flooding etc, we fortunate Hashers somehow managed to get the one perfectly sunny day of the week and God knows we would certainly need it cuz a hash in Paramin is definitely not for the faint of heart, far worse if it had rained!
Having been dumped yet again by my usual Hash ride (I mean really…and this time for a trip to the mall no less!), I was lucky enough that “Ato” just happened to be passing my way and was able to pick me up.
The ride up was pretty uneventful; Ato and I joked around and chatted while a certain “cheerbaby” chatted on the phone almost the whole way up! Certainly seemed to have a lot to get off her generous bosoms J
As was to be expected, there was quite a large turnout due to the proximity to POS…….although I suspect half of the people there really didn’t have a clue what they were in for. Ah mean, I’m no longer a regular on the Hash, but each time I happen to grace de place with meh presence there are usually quite a few new faces – like these people doh learn eh – poor suckers!
The hares tried to give us their usual story – no hills? But unfortunately for them we would not be fooled and then there was some very wise advice from one of the hares……in the event that anyone got lost or separated from the pack, just simply head back up the hill as the only way out was up – huh? Ummm…thanks Ricky but I think we could have figured that one out by ourselves!
And then we were off! Or at least we crawled off, as no one wanted to end up on the wrong trail and with the hares deliberately guiding us in the direction of not one but two seriously steep false trails (but then again who am I kidding, everything here is steep!) At least we were comforted for a while by the fantastic ocean view and the occasional sea breeze.
Eventually we found ourselves on the right trail after an unnecessary trek down Saut D’eau Road – thanks guys! For those of us not familiar with the “sweet hills” of Paramin, there is no easy route, everything here is hard but I must say the hares certainly outdid themselves by finding some pretty challenging courses, after a time you couldn’t even depend on the usual “on trail” Hash banter to get you through the Energy Challenge – oops! I meant Hash as everyone seemed to be conserving their breaths for the hills to come. The hares were also mysteriously absent after we were led uphill (yet again) and into the forest. We trekked a very steep downhill for a while before coming across a checkpoint and shortly after two “Xs” with  no indication of the correct direction.  The pack reunited for a while but figuring we were on a back check we all turned around and started unwillingly back up only to be met by the smiling hare Wahid “you all didn’t check properly man” was all he said before leading the pack back down the hill again  and onto the correct path.
Okay… so by now you get the picture right? Plenty, plenty, plenty hills! Eventually we found ourselves back to the start but it certainly was not easy……..a really, really, good workout especially if you are preparing for the Coast 2 Coast and which I grudgingly enjoyed – masochist that I am.  Hares, my hips and thighs may be thanking you but I most certainly do not!
ON ON!!!

Michelle’s Mess

Run No. 758 – 4th September, 2010, Run Site: Paramin

Paramin, the top of Trinidad, a beautiful spot on a sunny afternoon.   Once the run started though, the clouds rolled in and we were running through the misty mountain tops for a while.   With the low clouds, the temperature dropped somewhat but that didn’t stop the pack from enjoying the beer stop which we hit about 15 mins into the run.  Good going hares, especially as the run lasted just over an hour.    With the down downs out of the way early, of note was the 26 virgins, we heard that a few runners were still out, lost.  Eventually they turned up, but lately we seem to be losing hashers on almost every run.   All’s well that ends well, and the lime continued as we enjoyed the balmy breezes at the top of Paramin. On On

Poofters:      Kerron, for making his sister Alisa, a virgin, tote a huge shoulder bag with all his stuff, including cell phone. so he could call her during the run in case he needed his inhaler which was also in the bag.  Asst. H.M. Mahasma Arthur Ghandi, for leaving important Hash essentials home, like the Hash Rum and garbage bags.   Marianne & Rene, for making out on the run from start to finish.  And Kerron, again, for sending his ‘udder’ partner on a check way downhill with instructions to text him if he was on the right trail.   For all his transgressions, Kerron was the crowd favourite and was awarded the poofter without further ado.   Meanwhile, Michael Morton Gittens, another virgin, was made to drink from the ‘arm’ for being a total pussy during the downdowns.

739 January 9, 2010 The Big Dicks Alenore Gardens, Arima Long Time Hasher


Well it was a last minute decision to make this hash, as I bus’ it out the house at   3-00 pm to head towards Arima. Thoughts ran through my mind as to how late the run would start ? I mean Michelle now hash mistress, surely I would have time! But then wait, talk was she had turned over a new leaf and would actually be at the run early. Well who would I be with to catch up the pack after reaching late ? Just Dookie and his dog?!!
Turning into the runsite it was with some relief that I saw hashers still milling around, 6 big dicks in yellow directing parking, Michelle looking oh so officious in blue with board and paper in hand, who were we waiting on? Suddenly into the runsite arrived Dookie and dog in his yellow jeep. Ah ha the run could now start, and so said, The biggest Dick (so he keeps saying !!) called us to order with the usual preamble.

On on down the road out the runsite and then no paper or trail. A couple of minutes of looking and then back to the cars. What a great run guys ,a little bit short , but that’s OK! Where are the beers?!!
Wait what are we now doing running off away from the cars up a hill, as I followed a hasher dressed in Coco the clown pantaloons, saw Nevie roll his eyes and wonder what the hash is coming to (did he look in the mirror boxing Day?!!).Up this hill to the first check and trail to the right. Down a next trail and then more checking. So set the trend for the run. up and down well marked trails, (no chance of lost hashers here!) in and out a river, presumably the same one , at least 4 times. Through Bamboo, around the people’s vegetable garden. A seasoned hasher like myself could not work it out, we seemed to be zig zagging through A very small area, but it was working well as back markers and walkers frequently found themselves at the front of the run, and the pack more or less stayed together. Chance of a couple of nice views of the central plains on the way, and some nice running towards the end, on the on-in.

A few observations on the run:-
What did the hasher do with his monster energy drink can, after sitting down half way through the run to drain its contents?? Biodegradable Aluminum right?
A first on the run for me was a hasher pretty in pink, with matching pink towel in hand!! Can’t sweat on a run right?, sorry perspire!!!
What was the hasher doing answering his phone on the hash? Aren’t cellphones supposed to be on silent for the hash?
After hash activities warmed up quickly with bragging rights as to who came in first. Hanif and Harty laid claim, and then it turned out they had missed the end of the run. Beers were flowing freely, s..t talk flowing as usual and suddenly that was it, NO MORE BEERS.!! Just enough for the Down Downs and Poofter.
Apparently the residents in the area didn’t feel safe with all these strange looking Hashers around,??  and we were advised not to stay late?? Some discontent ensued, some grumbling hashers left, Zam and friend not getting the chance to market and sell their Breathalizer kits, and we were given directions to a nearby rumshop down the road for continuation of the fun.

Over 45 thirsty hashers descended on this rumshop, who obviously had been forewarned, as the carib truck was outside! Beers started flowing again and a 3- man band started playing long time and old time calypso, for everyone to sing along with. A great lime ensued, and even the Yachties present were seen singing along to “Black man feeling to party”! Nobody seemed to want it to finish and those guys must have performed for over an hour. They weren’t even put off by Betty’s singing!! As I left David Dookie was seen bag in hand wandering off down the road to the Arima taxi stand!!
ON-ON!

Michelle’s Mess

First, it was the case of the beer evaporating off the back of the pickup truck then it was the cries of what! – beer done already! Then it was de hares! …. Ladies, I ask you what is a girl to believe?  One week they wearing dresses and the next they calling themselves Big Dicks and wearing some strange looking appendages round their necks.   All these mixed signals left me wondering if the Hares suffering from penis envy or pussy envy.    Anyway, to their credit, the run was well set and they organized an excellent after lime at Gokool’s Bar, where the hash was entertained by the well known and talented Steven Garcia and friends.  These guys provided some vintage calypso that had all of us singing along.  So thanks Eggie aka Friar Egg, Hose Man Gerry, Los Pimpos, Astro Boy, f.w.l. BLING, Bacon and The Quiet One for a great evening.

Virgins: Welcome and hope to see you again:  Kat, Jorn, Ricardo and Brian 

Birthdays: Best wishes to Salma Khan for a great year ahead and hope you have many many more.

New Shoes: Bernard – who bravely drank out of Hanif’s shoe

Poofter nominees: Ricardo – bad enough that he did the run in rubber slippers, but with a cigarette stuck behind one ear too! Eh Eh,   Then there was Harty, Hanif, Curtis and Doon’s girlfriend, SCBs, who took a short cut  that cut off 20 mins of the run, and finally the winners – Jorn & Kat, who all during the run were either arguing or giving directions to each other on walkie talkies!    Tut tut. 

Hash Sports & Family Day: Postponed to the end of March. 

Hashers Wear White Kaiso Competition: Carnival Saturday 13th February, 2010

Who will dethrone Martin?   The word is out – the girls coming strong and Mervyn say that nobody cyah beat him. Will de Mighty Ole Clothes take de crown!  To find out, don’t miss the Hash Run and Calypso competition.

Me an’ a few others loss our virginity las’ year

Hash virginity that is…

For us dee hash does start when we leave home, and we love to get a ride to go there

I have to say this was one ah dee best I get so far, though I thought I woulda get left behind for being seven minutes late for the car transfer. There is a proverb that says”Punctuality is the soul of Business” and it seems for hashers getting there on or before time is serious business.

Back to dee bes’ ride… dee talk was about . . . what else… punctuality and then brand loyalty, it was a coca cola run, should some of us stay away or not… (Dee bes’ ride had brand loyal drinks a plenty, and more conversation about punctuality) then we talk about how wonderful T&T is as we drove further into the countryside and closer to Toco.

We start tuh see a small hash convoy forming. . . “Wait daz Richard wit a long hair gyul? Nah , is Wahid!” Yuh know we had tuh be in front of dee convoy so we show them how to “negotiate” a car, truck, suv around all ah dem slow Saturday drivers.

So we get to dee beach almos’ ah hour early so mankind (literally) rushes into the sea to hang out and wait for things to start.

I lookin’ around and listening quietly. Ah notice a new shoe, pretty fuh so, wit’ reflective yellow designs. When he friends and dem realize he start to beg, and right in front of my eyes they form an alliance to keep it quiet.

Things start tuh look like it about tuh start. Dee bathers come outta dee ocean and a man say if man run wit’ a salty body he would start off wit’ balls and end up wit’ peanuts! If you see dee stampede for blue waters! And not to drink…but for a clean start.

The “head” of the hares made his rounds welcoming one and all, being a true hash host. Dressed in coca cola t-shirts, and calling their hash “Mission Impossible III” He gave dee usual pointers and then we saw the embodiment of the “Mission Impossible III” three super fit hashers in ultra mini t-shirts, brought along to escort the drinks truck that would meet us somewhere along the route – the guys seemed real excited about beers and babes in dee bush

So we start, and after the normal run around we gone in dee bush. I, along with several others am for now not a front runner, and look around taking all that is new to me. This time I began as one of the last, and many times I found myself walking alone, then a hare would appear making sure I was on the right path.

That run had a lot of thorns everywhere. Yuh couldn’t hold on to or grab to balance on anything… dee cry was “watch our for dat prick! Doh hold on there, doh step there, yuh might get ah prick, oh gosh! Look ah get one in meh han’ …

A good job seemed to be done “sweeping” The beer stop was truly welcome, and I emerged convinced that I was the last one out.

Once that was done, dee limin’ start. Drinks sellin’,music playin’, food and laughter sharing all round. Dee trucks, hares and the “Mission Impossible III” came out of the bush, and dey join in, to the max.

I sat on the sand watching the ocean and the bathers that I assumed were the group that I came with. Then Mariss’s daughter asked for her Mom. She asked around and we realized six people were still missing, and it was now dark. If yuh see flashlight appear from everywhere! And even one on a helmet. Dey stop dee cola/ MI III lime and two trucks headed back in.

Ah really see why dey say dis is a drinking club with a running problem… twice someone had to stop dee down downs ‘cause dey didn’t realize that people was still lost inside. Six people, with two first-timers truly de-virginized by their experience. I was not worried because those fellas love to boast about watching “Man v Wild” so dey safe in jungle conditions. Of course there was a lot of falling in the dark, and one of the “lost” did his version of a nonstop “are we there yet”

Of course Marlon got poofter – again – for leaving people behind – apparently it is an annual event for him. Mr. “new shoes” got away with not drinking beer from them (He was our ride out) and all’s well that ends well. ON ON

Mahashma’s Meditations

The tall Lady is being indisposed the tall skinny man was now in charge. Mission bay Toco was indeed a beautiful run site for those who drove and braved the weather. As it turned out quite fine for the hash. I could not help but notice a lot of the old farts were absent, the drive apparently has become too long for these oldies. Or was it their chronic diseases acting up you know what i mean,dementia loose bladders non functioning colons and abused livers. The run was excellent but their was some confusion at the end resulting in a few people getting lost in the bus. This caused a delay in the down downs and the arrival of the curry crab and dumpling. Everyone was shouting “where is the food?”. In future Hares make sure the food is available immediately after the run. Because of the delay and the late food, the hares lead by Marlon were given the poofter awards. Otherwise it was a well set run and in future let the coca cola girls be a permanent feature.

Welcome Virgins: Simone, Keaton, Tyba, Nichash, Mandy, Niels, Narrisa, Nicole
