Venue: Tamarin Estate Run 512

Hares: Zan & Peter

We had a full house hash mismanagement team today - everyone was back!!! YIPPPEEEEE! Run 512
Our GM Supremous Blobus zoomed in from his adventures honouring us with his presence and our RA Peter flew in especially for the occasion - Run 512
Maybe this phenomenon has something to do with the spot we chose - Valhalla or some people also spell it Walhalla - the place of the gods… Run 512

Hashers & Harriettes!!!

Coming to you EXHAUSTED and HARED-OUT from the TRASH DESK Run 512
with actual behind-the-scenes footage FROM THE HARES THEMSELVES.

Roaming around Moka on Thursday - in the middle of a cloudburst due to the Tropical Disturbance "Ex-Hondo" Run 512 we had to make up our minds swiftly…where to set the hash?
We decided to try something completely different and investigated the Tamarin Estate en route to Yemen and Magenta - and found a magnificent beauty spot for the ON IN - right next to the river in a mini forest with plenty of shade - Perfect! What a relief -

Run 512

Getting permission at Medine Sugar Estate was a breeze and by Thursday night we scribbled directions to the Trailmaster.
There was no opportunity to set the trail before Sunday still due to the Tropical Depression … Run 512 so we packed a hare survival bag filled with FLOUR, raincoats, sunscreen, Anti-Mosquito, breakfast and BEER!

Setting out at six thirty Sunday morning was fresh and fun!!!

Run 512

And there were NO TROPICAL DEPRESSION RAINCLOUDS in sight! Run 512
While laying the trail we came across hare-hunters….ooooooops Run 512
Luckily we were in disguise else it could have turned into a bad hare day.
So there we were - two hares on a special mission, dotting rocks and dodging shots!!!

Thanks to Peter who is a veteran at this kind of thing - and a copy of the hash sign language in my left pocket, I was Run 512 for away and having great fun getting covered with flour but after all the hard work Run 512 this is an experience to be recommended … it really put us in touch with nature and it was great to see how everybody enjoyed the area which combined the lovely river, green fields, sugarcane, beautiful views of the sea and surrounding mountains and the mysterious forest where all the after run fun started!

Run 512 For those of you with adventurous spirits put your name on the Trail Master's list!

BACK AT THE ROUND CIRCLE…

Remember to take off your hats when the GM speaks Run 512 Today we had a handful of…
Run 512
Razeeyah (Mauritius)
Chris & Patricia (UK)
Jana, George & Michael (Zurich)
Tim & Sarah-she was the youngest member of the hash crowd today! (Australia)
Jacob (Switzerland) - we will always remember him as the Flower Power First Timer! Run 512

Run 512
To the GM's delight we had one second timer that saved him from having to down a beer… Philippe (Mauritius)

Run 512

Peter was cloaked in his RA Attire
full of beans as his usual self, pointing everyone's attention to the history of the area and pulling out of his pocket another inspiration from his Poetic Gems Travelling Suitcase.

The Warthog - Part XXVII

The Gods of Valhalla - An Ode to Thor

The fabled land of Valhalla,
Place of the Gods of yore.
And the Great God of Thunder,
Amongst the greatest of all.

As he leapt on his steed,
From a high wall.
Mortals would treble,
To his thunderous call.

"I'm Thor",
He cried.
To which the horse replied,
"You forgot your thaddle thilly!"

Enough of this frivolity! Run 512
The RA was ready to dish out small bits of punishment for certain crimes committed on the hash today! Run 512

1 ~ who would have thought that we had a sexual deviant on the hash…other than Claude?… BERTRAND was caught red handed while climbing down a wall shortcutting and then urging Harriettes to jump him - the typical "sex on the hash" scenario that the RA loves to punish! But he downed that beer with such amazing throat action that he was soon forgiven by everyone. Run 512

2 ~ BOB was branded for being a WHITE COLLAR CRIMINAL and had to down it for marking a circle without waiting for the check back from the FRB's,
he took it like a salted hasher, well done Bob ! Run 512

3 ~ we don't like cruelty to animals! When Peter asked Patricia if her dog was spayed, he (the dog) started digging a hole!
So having called a spade a spade…he (Peter) gave her a down down for her sins. Run 512

4 ~ we had a GOODY GOODY HASHER today…oooooooooh wonder who could that be? Was it Henriette? Was it Alan?
The RA called out the NAME of the DAY - none other than our Grand Master Supremous Blobus himself, for doing the WHOLE TRAIL and never turning back, wow
and he had to down a whole beer (instead of half a beer like the rest of the plebes) for this terrible crime. Way to go Blob! Run 512

I have a feeling our RA is fishing for retribution himself, if he continues to punish his superiors in this way! Run 512

Bang Boom Va Va Voom!
Flying in on a smelly Broom! Run 512
The moment has come -
Anticipated by everyone!

Run 512

Introducing a Brand New Smelly Blue! Run 512
Peter was prancing around Run 512 with his untainted new smelly blue, showing off this special piece of hash haute couture before handing it over to Annelise!

He thought that would be the best way to get her to return to the hash soon!

Run 512 (Will she / won't she… after this?) Run 512

The new smelly blue did not stay new for too long, barely after Annelise put it on,

she was showered with beer and the smelly was inaugurated in brisk extravagant hash fashion.

On to more serious matters folks!

Like feeding a flock of hungry hashers… Run 512

Thanks to Marie-Jo we had tasty PASTA for lunch bites and she has kindly offered to cook for the next hash too - you are a super Run 512 !

Our next hares will be Jean & Philida - watch the web for details!

Run 512

The day was not over after this - we all had a memorable afternoon in delicious surroundings,

mingling, munching and enjoying…and some of us bitter enders lingered longer - as you can see,

Claude was spotted by a hash flashbug and this is how he ended up on the trash tabloid!

On that note ~
Reaching the end of Valentine month…
Today is the day AFTER the hash - it's CUDDLE DAY!
So…
Get cosy with your loved ones!
Wrap them in your arms Run 512
And give them tight squeezes!

That's a wrap from me folks!
Squeezy byes!
Until we meet again -
Have a super duper time!
