Yes, I guess this run was just not meant to be.
First of all, Bank Cock texted me last week to say that she was busy with work related matters ... like that really matters.... the hash rules are
Then believe it or not, The main hare calls me up today and calls it off because "it is too wwww wet and cccccc cold and we (the hares) dont want to go out in the rain to set the run". Too much traffic in the area, mud, water, etc. (In Kingston and along the seawall !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Now, as good, vigorous, healthy, horny, raucous hashers should know, the hash goes on in any weather
and on or in any terrain.
In other words, no matter what, there should be a hash when scheduled. Yes we know gone are the days when we had 50 mud-to-the-waist hashers doing down-downs in Palm Court, after having run in slush behind New Hope backdam, or swimming GuySuCo Trenches/Canals! But come on people, a little rain????!!!!????
Shameful!!! Our dear departed R.A. is sure to be turning over in her grave (oops sorry Moldy!) Our R. A. in training is sure to have something to say about that!!!!
Anyhow, first of all, the run has been put off until next week Saturday i.e. Feb 04 2012 at 3pm in front of the BHC. Therefore Bank Cock no longer has an excuse for not setting the run with the other hares!
Next, those of you who read this blog but are not on the email list, please let us have your addy's and we will keep you up to date.
According to sources, the run after next will be hared by King Solo. Jr. on Sat. 11th 2012. We hope so, our hare line is looking a bit sparse ... maybe I should go out and buy a wig!
Now, about the last run.
As you may remember, our last installment of the GHHH was on Sunday 15th Jan at 10am.
The hashers as usual turned up at the BHC between 10 and 11, which meant that Yes we were late!!
Never mind .. we had a pretty good turn out there of about 34 hashers, which grew by the time we got up to the Highway Junction.
The G. M. set a nice simple trail that started at the back of Garib Farms and after about 10 mins of scrub and brush running, ended up on sand trails and then the circuit roads, all the way to The Jardim's place.
Now we ask that persons coming to the hash let us know so we can plan on food and drinks .. what we started off with was about 39, what we ended up with was 52. Now considering that we catered for 40, it means that by the time the down downs were done, we were short on beer, and the food, well the less said the better.
All in all though, a very successful run both financially, and in terms of the hashy scale (7.5) not bad for a quickly thrown together thingy by one person!
Jason and Tabitha got named:
Jason, despite the fact that he did not quite make the requisite runs, was leaving, so this being his home kennel, he got a name .. despite the fact that he is a malariologist etc got the name "First to Cum" coz he is a front runner ... or is that really the reason?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Tabitha was named (despite the rumour that she was responsible for the medevacing of her boyfriend with a terrible awful horrendous flesh and brain rotting disease!!!!!!,) "Cat in Heat"..... hhmmmmm!!! Does somebody know something that I dont?
After all necessary persons were deposited in the OOL, including those who had sprung leaks and were trying to avoid being wet .... no excuse .. it's red water anyhow!!!!!!!!
This being the first run of the year, hares for the nest run were volunteered by the GM .... Terrence Reid, Bank Cock, and one other nameless person (at the moment anyhow).
Next installment of this Hash Trash hopefully next week after (if?) we survive whatever the hares throw at us.
