SMALL MOUNTAIN - Lighthouse Hill
Hares: Basil, Flying Finn
Hash Flash: Dr Who. Additional photos: Ice Water, Perro Caliente
We all met again in Hon Ru Ri coffee shop at 14:00, and Returnee Lady D managed to meet all the other Returnee Hashers, but some wonder why SamSon has been missing for past few weeks.
Then we follow Hares Basil and Flying Finn to Hem 84, Phan Chu Trinh, and we pass through the park on Front Beach where locals are doing lots of family activities.
When we reach our destination, we realise that Hashers Terminator and Anatoly have dashed ahead and missed our meeting point - but they were called back by Perro Caliente.
Then Basil start the chalk-talk that today's trail is going up to the lighthouse, but we do not take the bushes because the Hares got cut and bruised when they tried that trail so they decided to go by cement road.
We climbed the rocky slope to reach the cement road that leads to the lighthouse and while we walk along, Hasher Anatoly saw a lot of couples on the way and he tried to encourage them to do more exercise, in Russian!
As we nearly reach the lighthouse, the trail turned to the small detour that goes through the forest and around the cement road; however, Mother Teresa knows the trail and decided to head down the mountain first, and Basil is waiting at the old Worldwide Arms Museum building since the trail down the mountain starts from there but isn't visible, so everyone needs direction.
When everyone meets up with Basil, we all headed down the stairs that go through the village houses, and come out at the market near Phan Chu Trinh street. Then we all head back to Hon Ru Ri where our ice cold San Miguels are waiting.
After we regain our strength(!), we took the team photo and started the Circle. After the welcoming message, Ringmaster Basil invited the Hares Flying Finn and himself into the Circle, and Russian Hasher Yena was nominated to rate the trail.
She said it was "a good trail", but when they finish at the lighthouse they don't know where to go down the mountain, so they walk until they saw Basil waiting at the old museum, so the trail was awarded 9.5/10
We welcomed 2 Hash Virgins, Alexei and his wife Yelina - they were introduced by Yena. They like the Hash and if not so busy at work they will join more often. Basil sang the "welcome virgins" song by demand of the Circle.
We got returnees: Lady D with her excuse being travel and her friend's birthday party; and Blondie and Dr Who who were absent only for 1 week, revealed to us that their excuse for missing that week is they got engaged. Congratulations!
Sinners, we got Mother Teresa and Basil for not going all the way to lighthouse and going back early, so Down Down for them!
Then announcement that Blondie and Dr Who will leave the Hash for work and might possibly going to Sydney for 6 months. And then they can come back to the Hash for another time. Safe trip both of you!
Another announcement, that next March Vietnam will be visited by Pattaya Hash from Thailand and they would like to Hash with SH3 (Saigon), NTH3 (Nha Trang) and VTH3. We got 2 options: do a run with Pattaya Hash before or after they run with SH3 - or do a joint run with Pattaya and SH3. Basil will try to contact SH3 for confirmation and announce his findings.
Before Basil closed the Circle, he told that the Hash always need Hares to set trails every week, so Terminator and Mother Teresa agreed to help set the next trail in Long Hai Mountains. They will send message to Basil if the trail is successfully set, so please watch the NEXT RUN box on the website for more updates.
We'll meet again on Sunday, as usual, at Hon Ru Ri: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start.
