21st March 2004
Hare(s): Eric & Stephanson Co. Ltd. Venue: La Nicolière
A beautiful part of the island, with the glasslike mirror of water stretching
to the tree-lined distance; tranquility personified!! The Hares decided
to overlook this ideal hashing countryside, and ran us through the sugar-cane!!
The March-Hares gave a 10 minute briefing, informing the Hounds why they
would not enjoy the run, and why they had not set the run around the peaceful
lake because it had water in it!!! Surprise! Surprise! We were also told
that the run would not be in the forest as it had plants in it!! We were
also given a weather report for the last week, and informed that it had
rained during the night, and in the morning……congratulations
to the Water Board for choosing this area for their Reservoir!! The only
people surprised by the weather were the Hares!! Don’t be surprised
if the water coming through your taps in the next few weeks has a residue
of flour in it, as the 10 kg of flour used by the Hares went into Nicolière’s
Anyway - off we went, expecting to find “nul-flour” on our
way through the sugar marshlands. There was the occasional unleavened
bread which had survived the downpour, but our black mascot showed us
the way. Then, tragedy struck. One of the FRBs got lost! As well as being
“yesterday’s man” the lost soul found the residue of
“yesterday’s trail” which escaped the rain. Recording
the incident later, Alan was heard to have said, “## bleep #^##
bleep !! bleep #$# bleep !%, bl--dy Hares!!” Anyway, the rest of
the pack was guided nicely around the course by “one man and his
dog!” Unfortunately, none of us completed the course accept for
our GM, and the two Hares who guided him (creeps). We all missed “the
best part of the run”. Shame on us all. Our GM, who was walking
with the Hares at the time, was rewarded with a 6 inch gash on his leg
for his trouble!! Aaaaah!! Sorry!!
Hash Trash Grading: A good run, and enjoyed by us all…..thanks to
the Hares. Well done!
Marie-Claude…..leaving the next day, but will come back.
None……our GM took the usual punishment.
“Braveheart”…….beautifully translated from the
original Burns Trilogy by Leslie Scott Mc Boast.
Andy Pandy informed us about the St. George’s Night Dinner –
Saturday 24th April.
The Isle of Wight Hash House Harriers will visit from 7th-17th October.
Jacques and Rosemary. Food: Marie Jo…..Claude is Head Waiter.
Nepotism at its worst…..awarded to Stephan!
RA's Down Down's
Andy was punished because he missed an important arrow as he was running
Hans had bought new shoes especially for his last Hash. Claude kindly
offered to drink a downy from the shoe as he had not informed Hans of
the unwritten “rule”!
Where is it?
The Hash (“Food” you fools!!) was lovely thanks to Philida
and Jean. Many thanks.
