Walking Dodo

Venue :  Mon Tresor Mon Desert

Hares :  Jacques and Rosemarie

Our 2 hares promised that today's trail was going to be SHORT, FLAT and DRY  BUT alas!!! They got the short part of it a bit WRONG.

This is getting VERY INTERESTING.

Graphic here Fabulous sea views.....the trail meandered through uncharted territory over flowing streams, through sugar-cane crops (just for a change ... we NEVER go through sugar-cane crops in Mauritius! ho no no) and forest-like plantation (hey did any of you notice those HUGE SPIDERS?)

Arachnophobia my foot! I almost had a speed-wobble.

We also passed an interesting rock structure in the road which reminded our Grandiloquent Maximiliant of the STONEHENGE.

Onto the beaches! Into the fields! We will never surrender!

So off we all went like a stripe of ants...... Graphic here which reminds me of those naughty ants who ate all Rosemarie's flour blobs!

Phew! Getting back to base was a huge sigh of DRY THROAT RELIEF, an oasis, an idyllic mesmerising unique setting for our INFAMOUS RENDEZVOUZ of the

ROUND CIRCLE.

Talking about CIRCLES...our RA was circling around our GM trying to intimidate him

(intimidate the GM? Now that's a dangerous thing to do...) and he was lucky that Martin didn't order Roxy to nibble him! As for the dogs and their owners ... today we had a dog who is a Sausage by name and a dog who is a sausage by nature! Wooooof!

Oh thank Graphic hereoodness Graphic hereeritorious for that, our Graphic here was very relieved. Not that he ever minds to down a beer!

Our worshipful honorary Graphic here Graphic here Graphic here was dragged back into the circle...after he was under the impression that he had been banned...and appeared in full apparel, with his Graphic here t-shirt and walking stick which doubles as a magic wand to identify all the transgressors and put them down on their knees and make them beg for mercy...

Graphic here  Down - downs 

Last hash our Graphic here was BORING ... and today he decided to become even more BORING so someone would volunteer to be Rent-an RA to save the round circle from beer decay......

So all the Graphic here -Volunteers that didn't show up – where Graphic here you?

Ray, Leslie, Kevin and Gilberte, get down on it!

Here's to the buggers, they are blue ... and wet and sticky after being attacked by the bar ladies with showering beer-bottles. Graphic here

Jacques, our half hare – was punished for the gruelling 9km trail and trying to suggest the RA take an ECG oooooooops.....

Rosemarie....our better half-hare – was found extremely guilty AND she had something to do with the “Rosemarie Scale” i.e. the

Graphic here.....meaning that on a scale of Graphic here where would today's hash be rated?

Graphic here  extra large BORING 

Graphic here super grande emergency intervention of helicopters and police for wounded hashers)

Soooooooo it was unanimously decided that today scored a whacking Graphic here on the Hash scale! (I would have added 2 extra points for the Graphic here spiders but there you go, nobody ever listens to me!)

REY – aaah our popular scoundrel! He deserved his down-down by putting MISLEADING photos on the cover of the hash-album......daring to reveal the true nature of the island-hasher...ho ho ho – showing how a blue-blooded hasher should enjoy life! Beer in one hand and cigar in the other. Graphic here Oh well you know what they say about men who don't drink and don't smoke....

The moment has come......that we've all been waiting for with   Graphic here Graphic here

What did you think? It's only the smelliest of Graphic here

Sing a song Blue with me......

Smelly Smelly Blue, everybody knows one...

Smelly Smelly Blue, every garden grows one...

A-HA! Who will have the rare honour of inheriting this status-symbol ... Harry decided it should be...... RAY – WHO? RAY? ... HOO-RAY!

Well done laddie, this time you still got it for WEB DEEDS, and we all think you are doing a GREAT job on that web

(Oh jeepers creepers don't remind me of those SPIDERS again!) - and we thought you needed a beer-treatment and TLC ... Tenderizing Liquor Cascade!

In other words.....another beer-shower. No wonder everybody is so happy, sticky and stinky today.

Thanks to Marie-Andre who cooked up a storm at the last minute, nobody went hungry and there were even seconds ...and Henriette's cookies were superlicious!

Our next kitchen-hares will be Harold and Adrienne >

The next Hash will be set by none other than our Timeless Trailmaster Alan and his Deputy – Gilberte our Dazzling Dodocop....somewhere in the vicinity of TWO ARMS or even translated DEUX BRAS.

Wow, it promises to be a spectacular mis-hash and cannot be missed!

  Graphic here Here is some gossip about that famous Sir R.U.N. 500 ...

He told me to tell you to get your tents ready!

You have been HASHED!
You have been TRASHED!
So until next time
Be Good
Be Passionate
Be Memorable
Be Unforgettable

Bye bye

Graphic here Sorry dudes....all my hares ran away PLUS I am having a BAD HAIR DAY!
