HASH TRASH  VOL. 12  #320
                             24 SEPTEMBER 2000 
 
Held at Plain Champagne (?) Hare Blob (?) 
Whoever said that this last Hash was 'short, flat 'n dry' deserves to have
their head read, or just shot - to put them out of their misery!!  It's a sad
situation when there's only one very lonely little grey cell swimming
around in a cavernous void, looking for company, when there is none!
This hash was definitely the complete opposite of 'short, flat 'n dry'!!
On arrival it was literally raining 'cats 'n dogs'!!  To the extent that a few
'old' hashers were spotted sneaking off home - probably back to their
nice warm beds with a hot cuppa cocoa and a good book - or whatever!!
 
Even so, we had a good turnout of new Hashers, so here goes....!! 
 
FIRST TIMERS 
 
Chris & Shirley (Simon's parents, who've come to check up on him and
make sure he's behaving himself) - from the UK.
Gert's 4 friends from Germany, who are out here on holiday - Sybille,
Sonja, Herbert & Vania(?-sorry, couldn't read your writing!)
Margaret - out here on holiday from the UK.
Angus - also out from the UK, but for work.  Poor chap!!
Ditte - who arrived on our shores a few weeks ago, also for work.  Met
Andreas at the Banana Cafe (where else!!), who invited her along.  Was
she wearing new shoes???
Gaurav - invited along by Blob.  You didn't meet him at the Banana as
well, did you, Blob?  Gaurav 'was posted here' from India!! (His words,
not mine!)  He's also been a hasher for 7 years.
Roger & Julie - I'm sorry, there was so much talking I didn't hear where
you were from!!
 
SECOND TIMERS
 
Vidia 'Not Guilty", who had a swim in her beer.  Geeta very kindly offered
her an umbrella!
Simon 'Bent Banana' just tried to drown himself in his beer.
John 'Dial-tone'
 
SMELLY BLUE T-SHIRT
 
Linda was having a hard decision deciding who was to be honoured with
this glorious adornment, but her mind was made up instantaneously when,
on arrival back from the run, feeling wet, bedraggled and probably in dire
need of a beer, she spotted 2 young gentlemen sitting cosily (and dry!) in
a car, reading the newspapers.  It was like waving a red flag in front of a
bull, I suppose.  Anyway, Denny (Cannon man) was the lucky recipient and
had a down-down from Blob, who again tried to 'get lucky'!!  
 
SPECIAL DOWN-DOWNS
 
It was round about this time, when Lesley RA was waffling on about God's
Creation and randy cockerels in Rodrigues 'playing dead', waiting to 'nail' the
local buzzards, that our current in-house late arrival Andreas 'Lomito' decided
to join us, instead of roaming the countryside for another few hours! 
Seeing that he only arrived at the Hash at 11:30, ran it, then joined us at
about 13:00 - he did well!  
Blob gave him (another) kneeling DD, probably trying to 'get lucky' again,
but he wasn't falling for it, so Blob tried to end him off by pouring it straight
down his throat.  
 
CHILDREN'S AWARD
 
What Children's award??
 
GAMES MASTER
 
Apparently our Games Master has been having a few complaints about the
'content' (or lack of it!!) of his games.  Big mistake!!!  He's Scottish!!  Didn't
they take revenge on the English in the Mediaeval times for wrongdoings?
I think we've had it now!! 
 
SPECIAL THANK YOU
 
Goes to Num Sok for the food, which was delicious!
And to 'Saddam' for saving the hash notes - and me - from drowning,
by being my 'umbrella stand'.  Thanks 'Saddam!'
