Mauritius Hash House Harriers

Hash Trash 541 - Sunday 12 April 2009


Walking Dodo

Run 541

Venue: Guimbaud Orchard, Montebello

Hares: Patrice, Etienne & Pratima

Before our run we bowed our heads in a minute of silence for two dear people that recently passed away - Blob’s wife Kathy and Jacqueline’s mom. We would like to convey our sincere condolences and sympathy to both our dear friends and fellow hashers during this difficult time.

Today’s run was cool, leafy and green…with beautiful views over the capital and the Indian Ocean.
Sans Sugarcane!!!

The hares conveniently forgot it was Easter and didn’t even leave one egg on their trail!

GM Alan fell straight into the swing of things and announced oh oh that we had TWO LEAVERS!
RA John and Brian!!!

John was hopping up and down sporting his newfound bunny-rabbit-extra-leverage-belt….and shouting YAY!!! Good Riddance!!!
John was en route to Indonesia whereas Brian was on his way back to Devon (UK)!
Brian almost hugged the GM in a”Devonshire-buddy-embrace” – but he was quickly brushed off and they both got their honorary deserter down-down.
Afterwards Brian delivered his farewell speech….how much he enjoyed it….how lovely it was in Mauritius…how many friends he’d made…and how quickly he wanted to come back…
GM Alan noted in typical hash mode that if we knew he was coming back we wouldn’t have wasted a beer on him!!!

He saved the GM from getting the dreaded no returnees-down-down!

For old times’ sake RA John took the floor dressed in his BLUE BUNNY BELT.

The RA was doing his little Easter walky talky – babbling about the Easter Bunnies coming out and about commercialised eggs and what not…and that Easter was really about Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection…which deviated his train of thought and led him to think that the GM thought he was omnipotent and should have known better than to SIN the way he did!

1 ~ GM Alan & Tusia!!! They both missed a box completely and to prove his point while being booed by the circle – the RA was drawing and explaining on the ground and begging everyone to listen to him doing his little thing in his little world…the whole circle was screaming with laughter as he made both of them kneel and kiss his bunny – Alan was especially guilty because he ignored the infamous box totally while everybody shouted for him to come back but he had wax in his ears that had been washed out by a witchdoctor so he couldn’t hear a word while he ditched everyone and ran off!

2 ~ RA John was running along like a gazelle in the long grass when he suddenly heard a loud huff-puff and saw David passing by like a bolt of lightning as if on anabolic steroids – doing the “Lance Armstrong job” and whooshing by the RA as if on performance enhancing easter juices – so he had to kneel in front of the RA who kissed him and sanctified him with beer.


The surprise of the day!

To take the Smelly Blue’s place,
we have chosen the HASH HOSTAGE ball and chain –
which was inaugurated today by LESLIE because he had the audacity to tell the GM how to hash.

THANKS ~ GIVINGS and other announcements

Thanks to Fazila for today’s food (yummy briani) and also to Adrienne for bringing the beers and softies…Our next cook is Muriel and the next hash is Martin’s HASH – at Creve Coeur – Martin anticipated that we might have a car park problem and thus he was prebooking his down-down ahead in case we ran out of beers.

The GM felt very guilty for his memory wobble – he forgot to call the HARES!
It must be an Easter thing!

The hares got a double D for a superb hash and a great ON ON in the shade – which is not an easy task in sunny funny bunny Mauritius!!!

Bye for now
