The Mauritius Hash Trash
Welcome all the new Hashers...!!
It was very nice to see the large turnout of regular Hashers…
Due to popular demand the "Camping Hash" has changed venue... We will not be going to Ile de la Passe... but staying on the mainland...
The new venue is now "LE MORNE" at the back of the BERJAYA HOTEL ... DIRECTIONS :
Go to the entrance of the Berjaya Hotel and follow the Hash Signs... The date is the week-end of the 10th October... There will be a normal Hash run on the Sunday morning... People will be Camping as from the Friday evening, through to Sunday... THERE IS A NICE BEACH & SOME GOOD SNORKELLING...!! So take swim wear... I have a Reminder List of stuff to take on a camp if anyone wants one... I will take some to the next Hash.
If there are enough people interested in a camping week-end on one of the offshore Islands, please let me know and I will arrange it...
RAMBLING ON ON
A very good Hash... PUFF...!! PUFF...!! Very well set by hardened
Hashers... although some of us found it a bit long and HOT...!! The
false run to the first "BACK CHECK" killed me...!! LOTS OF GREAT FOOOOD...!! Well done the "HARES" and the "COOKS" thanks for volunteering...??!!
Anyone setting three Hashes from now on will get a FREE "HASH HARE" T-Shirt...!! (yes this is a BRIBE)...!!
RAMBLING TO AN END
BLAH..Blah... BLah... blah... and a... BLAH... Blag, blag, blag...
See you at the next one.
Welcome to all the First Timers -
Denis Francois (interpreted by Supremous Blobus); from Sweden, Kicki (Anders other half); Rachel; Robert Kupisz (much merriment greeted his announcement that he is here to work on the privatisation of Telecom); 100% Mauritian (!!??) Danielle; and Ian, holidaying from Brussels. See you all at the next one.
Good to see those First Timers coming back - Anders 'Mammouth' Carlberg; Jim 'Piss Head' Featherstone; Jhotee, in the same t-shirt, 'Snapper' whose effect on Supremous Blobus was to have him throw BEER on the GROUND; the lost two from the last Hash, Keith 'Lost Cause' and Alison, who did try hiding, 'Compass' Thompson.
A little puzzle for us to figure out - there is a prize apparently. Answers to Edit Hare please. R.A. has instigated a new award! This week it went to Supremous Blobus for showing too much pride in his new TATA.
Happy Hashers Award
From newest-newly-weds, Alexandra and Anand to fairly recent newly-weds, Juliette and Dave.
Seems young Thomas is a bit attached to the green guy. Perhaps we need a new Award?
Usually this is given to a Hasher for wearing colourful or outrageous attire. F.A. decided a change was needed and awarded it to Supremous Blobus for always wearing the same shorts!!!
Smelly Blue T-Shirt
One thing Alan Renton now knows, is if you are trying to hide a back-check, don't get caught! He was and he did, by the wearer of the Smelly Blue Jim 'Piss Head' who appropriately awarded him the much sought after, Smelly Blue.
Fluffy bunny with a sore bum went from Mandy to Ben.
Special Down Downs
No better way to thank our Hares The Russells and The Brehains for setting such a great Hash.
Edit Hare was called in to the circle for letting the little known fact of Hans Van Lit's long lost son Frank known to everyone.
Thank you for all that great food Sylvia and all your helpers.

After you have gone past the little bay on your left, start looking for Hash signs directing you to a public beach. Make it a fun day out and bring swimmers, hats, sun block and WATER!!! See you there!!
A note from Supreme Cupid
It has come to my attention that Hashers who are bringing dogs are letting them run free. This I do not mind, but there are times that they should be controlled, ie. by being on a leash. Hashers, lets keep the Hash a place where all Hashers can have fun.

Jim 'Piss Head' Featherstone
Born in Somerset, England during the war, I am described by my two daughters as an over active wrinkley. I am single, (widower) and from a military family, I retired from the Regular Army in 1964 and the Territorial Army in 1995 and am now just two years away from an honourable retirement from my real job as a Project Manager in the building industry.
My interests are keeping fit, drink, military history, flying my microlight aeroplane and women, but not necessarily in that order.
In Mauritius for one year to supervise the building of a new Tuna canning factory at Riche Terre for Princes Tuna.

Alan 'Knit' Renton
This is my first ever attempt at a personality profile because so many people have told me that I don't have one. So here goes;
I was born in a town called Hawick which is 50 miles south of Edinburgh. I am 32 years of age although I have the mental age of half that number. I am mad about rugby having played it for over 20 years but alas had to give it up when I came to Mauritius. I am known back home for having a reasonable sense of humour and a party animal, enjoying life to the full.
I like beer, sex, and meeting new people (not in any particular order). Indeed sex and beer have led me to meet a great deal of people.
My nickname back home was "Beastie" which had something to do with the way I played my rugby. Not because I was close to some sheep or that I was caught examining a chicken. (I was looking for eggs) HONEST!!!!! I will leave the rest to your imagination.
There have been a few important moments in my life which I will share with you.
1. Getting married to my wife Anne in May 1996.
2. Losing my virginity at the age of 15 to an older woman.
3. Getting my sex swap reversed. Hence you will never see me swimming.....
4. Leaving my friends and family to come here.
5. Watching the film Braveheart.
6. The Scottish Grand Slam in the Five Nations of 1985.
7. Going on Holiday to Ibiza club 18-30.
8. Every holiday with my friends prior to marriage.
9. My Honeymoon
10. Last but not least Joining the Hash.
The above are in no particular order except of course for number 1.
I hope this gives you an insight to the shallow and meaningless life I have lived. That is now all changing thanks to you hashers. (What a load of Bollocks I can hear you all say).
