DATE:      December 30, 2006    

 

Siparia, the final hash for the year. The hash master asked me to write the scribe. I felt honoured then it dawned on me that no one else probably wanted to write it.

 

The bus came close enough to the scheduled departure time so we left POS at a reasonable hour. The journey down under was interesting with these hashers drinking like if there was no tomorrow. We had one pee stop then we got lost for a while ending up on Quinam Beach. Honestly, I think the hash master wanted to see the settings on the beach having never been so far south before (possible reception area). We eventually turned and headed back to the hash site. The hares were seen dropping flour on our way back. We missed the hash sight because the HHH sign was not up as yet. However, the previous trash clearly indicated that the run site was at Trincan field office. One of the hares (Joey) injured himself on the morning of the run which resulted in Mike and Audrey having to complete the run by themselves. I must admit that they did an excellent job.

 

The Run

It was uphill from the start. The hill was an average hill, nothing like Tobago, but the terrain was made interesting by earlier showers. The run was full of pricks on that day. It was funny to see the griff, Robert and Harold Lee sliding down the hill on their bellies. These somewhat seasoned hashers were finding it difficult to get to the top of the small incline. Then came Audrey – you need to plant your feet into the ground…hmmm. You would think these experienced hashers would know this. It was difficult for most on the day. Running through the forest - uphill, downhill and back out onto the road. We were fortunate to benefit from a bit of road running then into the forest again. A check – everyone came together at this point, as the correct trail was difficult to locate. Then the hash master was shouting - onon - heading uphill. You could here the exuberance in his voice – onon.  I am the hash master and I am leading my fellow hashers - until we hit the top of the hill and he had to stop to ketch his breath. The hash continued leaving the hash master some where behind. Through the forest back onto the road, over a single lane bridge then back into the forest. We were in the forest for a while then the hash ass was shouting on on downhill and we came out on to the road.

Déjà vu - we were about to cross the same single lane bridge again. We eventually realized that the hash ass ran us through an X along with the usual suspects who normally lead the hash. I won’t call any names but they know who they are. So it was back into the bush and by this time the hash met up again. Uphill, downhill, uphill and road was the cry of the evening.  A tributary here and there and the scent of crude oil throughout the run and it was back to the starting point. Well done Audrey and Mike.      

 

Bus Ride

After the down-downs, the beer and the tasty rotis it was time to leave. I was excited that we were leaving because I really wanted to get home. I realized about four hours later why some of the hashers who came with the bus sought alternative arrangements for the ride home. The first stop was Debe – Doubles, pholourie and saheena was the shout. We then continued on our journey – alcohol consumption and the sweet sound of music - what more do you want? (Pee Stop – Nevie). Well it all went downhill from there. Some of the hashers decided that they needed to express themselves vocally. I couldn’t believe that so many classics could be destroyed in one night. Nevie and Zam then thought that it would be appealing to those present in the bus to perform pole routines. There was a lot of dancing on the bus and I believe the majority of hashers on the bus enjoyed themselves e.g. Diane, Ken, Wahid, Nevie, Zam (Pee Stop – Nevie again). Beers were running low and you could see the panic on the faces of many on the bus.  The bus diverted into St. Joseph to replenish the stock and it was onon to POS. However, a decision was taken to stop on the Beetham to do a down-down. Who decided to stop on the Beetham? –

Can anyone answer that question for me? (Pee Stop – Guess who?) We arrived in POS in one piece and everyone dispersed after a fantastic day. Some hashers suggested that the bus ride was the best for the year.

I take this opportunity to congratulate our new hash master, to say thank you and goodbye to Dookie

(I understand that he now resides in Barbados).                   

 

DIRECTIONS TO THE NEXT RUN #652

DATE:     January 27,2007

HARES:    The Nieves Boys

RUN SITE: The Beach House at Henry Estate, Moruga.

TIME      3.30 P.M.

 

Drive to Princes Town.  There are signs all the way.  For those who can't read signs, drive South on the Uriah Butler/Solomon Hochoy H'way.  Take the Princes Town Exit (OLD San Fernando Exit).  Follow the road East (left) and you will very quickly reach  a junction with the Naparima Mayaro Rd.  Follow the sign and turn left for Princes Town.  Continue along this road all the way to Princes Town.  Drive through Princes Town.  At the next major junction (there are small islands in the road), follow the sign and turn right for Moruga.  After a short drive you will meet another Tjunction with "D & R Grocery and Hardware" obliquely opposite to the left. Turn right at this junction and follow this road all the way to Moruga. Don't drive into the sea!!  You will pass through Fifth Company, St. Mary's and Rock River.  When you see the sea directly in front of you, slow right down.  You will pass the Police Station on the left and a country parlour painted dark blue on the right.  Turn right at this last junction before the sea. Drive for about 40 seconds to the Beach House run site) on the left.  This is a very easy drive.  It takes less than 2 hours without traffic.  There may be traffic on the H'way if they are paving and there will be some traffic in Princes Town, so cater for a 2.5 hour drive by car and a 3 hour drive by bus.  There will be NO hash signs as Moruga is too easy to find.  There will be food on sale after the run.

Zam’s Zanies

 

Two down 24 more t-shirts to go! This last Hash saw us ending up on a Big Bust lime, which was, by all accounts, was very mediocre. No beers were drunk, no poles were wined on (‘cept mine, doh tell Juicy Pee), no pee stops were made (‘cept 10 for Nevie) and the bus went straight from Siparia to POS without any detours. The next one promises to be more exciting with Destra and Shurwayne. Three Cheers to Mike and Audrey who put a lot of effort into LAYING (of the trail). On the note of Big Bust limes, the run on Jan 27, set by the Nieves Boys will be in Moruga. Yes, a bus, however, for the Big Bust to set sail, we need at least 40 people, names will be taken today.

 

The Virgins: Maxine, Kimberley, Rima and Justin (T&T), Susan, John and Ghyslein (Canada), Megan, Mitali and Puneet (USA).

Robert, Susan and Puneet had new shoes, however, Robert was excused as he wears new shoes to every run just to get a free beer. He was even seen buying Lotto tickets in Siparia, but the nice lady told him she couldn’t sell him the whole machine.

Nominees for Poofter were Nancy (again), for toweling off Raymond with David’s towel while other people were waiting for the pipe. Audrey for getting lost, nnaaawww! And the Poofter award went to Susan Hale for phoning ahead to find out what the menu was. The Hash is a drinking club, the menu is beer and rum (always!). She, however, took it in good stride.

Believe it or not, there are still people owing money for Xmas party tickets (we know where you live). If you have already paid, please disregard this notice. If you don’t intend to pay, like Simon Westcott, you will not be served at the bar.

Remember, Run Site cleanup is the responsibility of the Hares. Anyone seen leaving bottles on the trail gets automatic poofter.

We would like to welcome the new On-Sec, Mumtaz Amarali and would like to thank the outgoing On-Sec, Risa Mohammed for a wonderful job. ON ON

Our Lager

Which art in barrels,

Hallowed be thy drink.

Thy will be drunk,

I will be drunk,

At home as in the tavern.

Give us this day our foamy head,

And forgive us our spillages,

As we forgive those who spill against us.

And lead us not into incarceration,

But deliver us from hangovers.

For thine is the Beer, The Bitter, and the Lager,

                  Barmen.
