RUN 576 - The Lusignan run

Run 576
Location: Lusignan Golf Course Road

Hares: Sperm Bank, Gypsy Bitch
Date: 27th September, 2008

Another good hot day in the sun ...

The Hash met outside the BHC at 3.00pm as usual, but did not leave for the run site until 3.40pm coz the hares decided that since the run was a short one, we did not need to be there so early.

A grand total of 11 persons turned up for the run (actually a walk) which started at the old Golf Course club house, went down the dam which continued at the end of the road, past the Prison, up a false trail on the GuySuCo dam, around the prison alongside the aromatic east coast garbage dump, into one of the young cane fields, to the end of the field, ending there in a false right by a canal.

Back to the check point, up the dam running alongside the Golf course on the other side (not the side with the road) past a big stack of firewood surrounded by earth to be burnt for road/dam works for GuySuCo, up close to the end of the Golf Course, then the Hares decided that it would be a good idea to take the hash through a drainage trench (not an irrigation canal) that was filled with the effluent from both the garbage dump and the prison!!!

Gypsy Bitch and FRPB in an effort to persuade the hash to cross, waded through the waist deep muck, and went across the golf Course back to the start of the run, while the rest of the Hash, yours truly included, backtracked all the way around to where the cars were parked.

After a few drinks at the clubhouse, the On On was held on the seawall in front of Industry (Gypsy Bitch's area), and a good time was had by all.

3 virgins were deflowered right there on the wall and The HM was punished for not going through the trench!!

Run 575 - The Diamond Run

RUN 575
September 13th 2008

Hares: Front Running Paperless Bastard, ChopSuzuki
Location: Diamond Housing Scheme

Twas a grand day for Running in good old Georgetown, Guyana.

The sun shone brightly during the morning with the promise of more blistering heat to come.

Fortunately, the clouds had otherwise to say!!

At 3pm on Saturday 13th, the Hash met outside the BHC on main street. A wonderful total of 17 persons turned up (including the 2 hares). (The virgins outnumbering the experienced hashers by a margin of almost 3 to 1). At 3:20 wonders of wonders we were off, heading 8 miles out of town to the Diamond Housing scheme on the East Bank Of the Demerara River.

The turn off into the housing scheme was a little crowded with the ever present stalls selling everything under God's sun, then for the 2 mile drive down to the run site, right at the end of the scheme, bordering the GUYSUCO cane fields.

Along the Main dam that the trucks drive, for only a short distance, then it was into the brush and tall grass (across a small trench) along that dam for about 1/2 mile and then across the inevitable single plank wooden bridge (a much wider trench this time) and into the housing scheme.

This scheme is very big, and it is possible to get lost (thank goodness for the hares laying paper).
Fortunately, no one did get lost, and all made it out of this part of the housing scheme almost completely intact!! (Lauren did have her heels partially amputated by her shoes!!)

Across the main road to the southern part of the housing area, through more streets, across yet another ditch (more or less dry this time) and back onto the GUYSUCO dam, with the cars about 1/2 mile away.

On On was at Rum in Her Crack's place with her being absent until the very end!!

A special occasion, with Stephan Nglunkit getting his name after 7 years of coming and not coming to the Hash ... May "Eager Beaver" wear his name in perpetual good health!!!!

Afterwards, at Gypsy Bitch's suggestion, some of us ended up in a Chinese Karaoke Bar in Kitty ... how he finds these places I will never know!!

ON ON till next time
