Hash #402 held on 30th November 2003

“The Hash that went on and on and on and on on…”


Venue
Goodlands Forest


Hares
Tom, Ruth and Annelise


First Timers
Richard Maharchu, a Hungarian from America, England and Australia now living in Mauritius who drives a Land Rover and appreciates nature or naturists, I’m not sure which, or perhaps both!

Second Timers
None: Presidential down-down duly performed.


On on:

All 3 hares had hoped to hash in Mon Choisy but were refused permission at the last minute by somebody’s aunt. Powerful things Aunts. Over to “Plan B”. Annelise was injured on Saturday, so Ruth and I set this hash. We did one half each. Ruth’s half was perfect in all respects, a model hash; well formed, shapely even…Mine was too long (a complaint I don’t hear that often). I accept responsibility –I’m a man, it must be my fault. In my defence, it was my first time, I was nervous, it was hot, I was tired, I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately and it’s never happened to me before. Honest.

It didn’t really matter as most of the Hash didn’t find the last third of the trail and so cut it short! Those that did follow it decided that it was too hot and time for a beer, especially as they had missed the beer stop. So it was a proper hash after all.

Goodlands forest is an old favourite for the hash, shady paths through varied trees, some good sections for hacking through, interesting little ruins and features, and at times some beautiful views of the islands off the north coast. If you are reading this for ideas in the future just remember that the forest is bigger than it looks and the running is harder than you think. Keep it short.

The second best thing about today was the spirit of everyone who came. The best thing was the food cooked by Gilbert and Pascale, fantastic! Those not there really missed out on both counts. In fact it was so good that Scuba did not want to leave.


Sinners

Blob was the stand-in RA today. He cited Decoy and Ruth for causing the entire hash to miss the beer stop and bade them kneel before him for a double down-down. Ruth pleaded innocence, rightly, but Blob was firm in his decision, hard in his justice and rigid in his insistence that she most of all should receive some correction. At least, I think that’s what he said.
Also punished- Rey “Hot Pants” Joseph for having an unhealthy fixation with lists. It’s a long story…

Once again Lord Russell intervened to award Blob himself a down-down for the most heinous acts of shortcutting since Delilah set about Samson with the scissors.

Smelly Blue and Children’s Awards postponed (no smelly children present again).


Hash Business

We carried out elections for a number of positions within the hash. Unlike the by-election in No. 7, there weren’t 49 candidates for every post, everyone volunteered and were approved nem. con. Politicians should take note.

As from January 2004, the new
Supreme Being will be Leslie Nimmo, who seemed to become just that bit more god-like even while being elected.
With immediate effect:
Hash Cash - Claudia Carey,
Soft Drinks – Jean Ramiah.
Many thanks to all the volunteers.

Further medals from the 400th were handed out, and another 20 are to be commissioned. So if you have had not had yours yet, make sure that you come along and collect one.


Next Hash

SATURDAY 13th December at MUG, at 2pm.

This is a RED DRESS HASH: you must wear a red dress or something very like it, no exceptions, no excuses! The hash will run into an evening Hash Bash at the MUG. There will be a spit roast, but if everyone brings along some sort of salad then there’ll be plenty to go round.


On on
