VENUE: Trianon

HARES: Ian and Olivier

GM DODOCOP requested the circle up at 1.30 pm!
The hares were called and the circle said that it was a nice run.

FIRST TIMERS/VIRGINS: 4 new comers namely,
Tatiana (alias Catamaria) from US,
Anna and Nadia from UK and lastly
Jean Paul from Mauritius.
They all enjoyed the hash and mentioned that they definitely come back.

SECOND TIMERS:
No second timers however a Down down was given to the GM. The reason being that if first timers didn't return to the hash it was the GM's fault and hence he deserved a DOWN DOWN as punishment.

Then stepped in our RA.
He started by mentioning that one of his responsibilities is to help hashers. Hence he told us a story about one of the Hashers, the RA didn't tell his name as he didn't want to embarrass him. So, the said Hasher had a dilemma. He was wondering if having sex on Sundays (the Sabbath) was a sin because he was not sure if considered WORK or PLAY.
He asked a priest for his opinion on the question. The priest said after consulting the Bible, "My son, after an exhaustive search I am positive sex is work and is not permitted on the Sabbath."
Our hasher thinks: "What does a priest know about sex ????"
So he goes to a minister...a married man, experienced...for the answer.
He queries the minister and receives the same reply. Sex is work and not for the Sabbath.
Not pleased with the reply, our hasher seeks out the ultimate authority, a man of thousand's of year's tradition and knowledge....A RABBI.
The rabbi ponders the question and states: "My son, sex is definitely not work it is play". Our hasher reply, "rabbi, how can you be so sure when so many others tell me sex is work?"
The rabbi softly speaks, "If sex were work...my wife would have the maid do it."
The moral of the story - GO FOR IT!!!

Alistair and Alan were called by the RA for a Down Down because they were quarrelling in the circle. The RA said that they should stick to their convictions and also respect their neighbour's convictions.

Great news...we found the anointment mug...which stayed for a long time in the car of an ex ex ex ...GM. The RA asked the most religious hasher namely JOHN to step in to proceed with the anointment ceremony of our current GM. HERE IS TO THE GM....DOWN DOWN.

The GM thanked all the hashers for coming to the hash and mentioned that, again, we had a food issue. Today there were only 42 hashers when food had been cooked for 70 hashers.

Hash Hostage:
Sarah who is our hash hostage for this run chose Ian and Marleen. The cow bell should be seen as a hash torch. The idea is that every hasher should wear the cow bell at one point in time as it shows an appreciation of goodwill rather than a punishment.
Down Down to our lovely couple.

NEXT HASH: ARSENAL (bring long pants and loads of water)
HARE: GIRISH & JEAN
FOOD: GIRISH (please confirm your participation before hand)

Last word of thanks to Juliette who did the food.

SEE YOU ALL IN TWO WEEKS.
Olivier
