TRASH Vol 11, #309, 09 April 2000
Welcome to Sue, Mike and Jenny McNally who have been on the Island for a year now but better late than never; Marilyn Hitillambeau a friend of Linda's; Sigi, Andrea and Iris Gassenbauer and last but not least, Nadine who joined the ranks of the Hash Injured by spraining her ankle! See you all at the next one.
Down Downs for Julie's Uncle Phil with the very original Hash name of, ....... 'Uncle Phil' ..... managed to get more beer on his head than in his mouth. Andrea's 'Lomito aka Little Willie' took it from the piss pot like a veteran. Note Can someone please send Edit Hare Lomito's Email address - the one I have bounces back at me.
Smelly Blue T'Shirt
Russell 'Santa 111' Worthy to Barclay one half of 'Fish and Chips'. This was for squashing some of the Guava's that had been collected en-route. Barclay and Oya couldn't decide which one was Fish and which one was Chips. For the record, this has now been decided after the fishy smell from the Smelly Blue. Sorry Barclay, you are definitely 'Fish'.
Religious Advisor/Sex Councilor
A mixture of a joke about a Franco Mauritian woman, parrots and priests! Also, a Genie in a bottle having sex with a man's wife topped off with a letter from Jimmy in Scotland with commiseration's for our English Hashers on their sad loss in the Six Nations Rugby competition. You mean, the English lost again?!
Special Down Downs
Barclay for taking his 4WD off road for the first time.
Hans for getting stuck en-route to the start point.
Dave Colbert just for being Dave.
Little Willie Andreas for getting a flat tyre and for not knowing how to change and for not even knowing how to find the spare.
Alan for giving up beer for two months due to a bet with his wife Anne for a new set of golf clubs. Had to take Diet Coke from the piss pot - now that is sad.
Peter for making the new Ice Box. Great job which should be appreciated by all you beer drinkers. An excellent individual undertaking, something extra to make the Hash even better. It would be great if we had more like you!
Hare Down Down
Tony 'Barnacle Bill' Ward for setting a very scenic Hash. The Hare managed to keep the group together with a great viewpoint and also with a beer stop (the first for some time). This was much appreciated except by Alan (Stand-in Edit Hare 11) whose loving fellow Hashers kept opening cans of beer under his nose (see Special Down Downs to understand why this was such a cruel thing to do). Thanks again to both Tony and Penny for the work and also the expense they went to.
A Hare of many talents, Barnacle Bill managed a good Shaggy Dog story to kill some time owing to the fact that Dave was having a little difficulty getting the BBQ going ..........
Mad Hash 2000
Sylvie with a reminder about Visas and tickets - get things done folks! Also remember to get those jabs. Good luck with the diseases and lads, don't forget the condoms (single lads obviously).
Thank you Juliette and Dave for the food - it was worth waiting for!
Next Hash is our Easter Hash so come on Hashers, lets make it a little bit special. Can everyone dress up in an Easter Theme please. Parents or kind Hashers without kids, please bring some small chocolate eggs so we can hide them on the trail for the kids. There is also a great hill for rolling hard boiled eggs down. Boil them and paint them and there just might be a prize for the grooviest egg.
Hare: Supremous Blobus & Chris Bourke
Directions: Same place as the last Hash, ie, Tamarin Reservoir. Make your way to Curepipe and get on the A10, Royal Road. Get to the B70 which leads west to La Marie. Turn right on to the B64 towards Glen Park. Turn left on to the B65 leading to Mapou. Keep going through Mapou and Henrietta till you get to the bus terminus. Go straight on past the bus terminus and follow the track south through the sugar cane. The track follows the line of telegraph poles. Keep going for about 1.5 km till you get to a small bridge over a stream. Turn next right through the gates and you are there!
Alan will also be organising some games at the coming Hashes. These will be light hearted and fun so everyone get ready to join in.

Ten best reasons not to exercise -
1. My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 now and we don't know where the hell she is.
2. The only reason I would take up jogging is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
3. I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.
4. I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
5. I don't exercise at all. If God meant us to touch our toes, s/he would have put them further up our body.
6. I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
7. I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.
8. The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.
9. If you are going to try cross-country running, start with a small country.
10. I don't jog. It makes the ice jump right out of my glass.
