Hash #396 held on 5th October 2003
Patrice & Pratima
Gilbert Lepoigneur, who was very excited and will return
Pascale Lepoigneur, who seemed to have done the hash in flip-flops?
Charlie and Helga Kraut, 58 and 54 respectively, or was that 5'8"
Sophia and Peter Oman
Monique – wearing new or newly washed shoes!
A short flat hash briefly interrupted by a 300m 1 in 3 mountain climb.
Good use of the
back-check kept the pack together and we all agreed it was jolly sporting
of the hares to
send us all over a waist-high electric fence – 3 TIMES! Overall
an ideal mish-mash hash
– bit of hill, bit of flat, rocks, rain, viewpoints and following
the FRD– (Front Running
Decoy). The hash-circle was held in a beautiful spot under the spreading
branches of a
large ficus. In short "Husband Good!"
An historic day for Mauritius with the inauguration of the new Prime Minister.
felt moved to call forward all Berenger look-alikes to atone!
Answering the call:
and a number of others.
The RA conspicuously failed to award himself a down-down for laying a
false trail after
a box. Tut, tut…
Preparations and organisations are well underway. So that the 400th coincides
visit of our esteemed guest we shall be running weekly hashes. The question
whether the 400th hash would be the relay-race itself or whether we should
all run around
a bit on Sunday again. In true hash style, the mish-management decided
something for the 400th but was not yet sure what would be decided. We
instructions from our Supreme Overlord. Watch this space.
Arlene actually managed to make this look good and generously passed it
on to Sybille
(twice blessed this week – see below)
Again, no-one was deemed worthy of the prestige of handling a stuffed
Naming of Names
Eric has been working hard for months now to think of some suitable names
and in all
that time has come up with 2. The third was a flash of inspiration.
Andy Belfitt is "The Hustler" for hustling Claude into a wrestling
match and the rest of
us into running miles.
Sybille is "Barbie Doll" for being so glamorous
Tom Williams is "Decoy" for leading the hash on the wrong path
– again (and again!)

1. Andy is organising the Round-Mauritius-Relay-Run for charity. He assures
us that all is under control except that some of the runners don't seem
to be taking things at all seriously. Don't let us down at the last minute
Anyway, he has enough volunteers who will each run either 5 or 10 km legs.
About 30 more have volunteered to be stewards and check on the runners.
Some more reserve runners still needed.
The idea is that we would set off on Saturday and run all night, arriving
at the end (Baie du Cap) on Sunday in time for a reception/cocktail. HRH
Prince Edward is scheduled to pay us a visit and meet the runners. Click

2. Training sessions are now in full swing at 5pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays
at Gynkhana Club, also most days at about 5pm at Trou-aux-Cerfs. Come
and join in! It may even do you some good !!
3. Would hashers please note that there is a deposit (money) on
glass bottles (beer, softies)! Please do not throw them away with
the rubbish (or even take them home).
4. Walks take place on most Sundays when there is no Hash. See the
