Total Hashers: 89 (36 VTH3/SH3, 53 KH4)
Trail: Chalk talk by Secs welcomed KH4 (Klang, Malaysia) and SH3 (Saigon), described the trail and markers, then it was “On On” via Hem 105 and up moss-covered slippery slope to Vi Ba, then Hem 36 and the red, yellow and blue pagoda staircase into the jungle. Follow red eco-tapes across and above ‘the big house’ then up, around and over many boulders to ‘painted rocks rest area’ next to Ho May Park wall at top of telegraph poles to enjoy panoramic city views and take photos. Down rocky ‘telegraph poles trail’ to Golden Buddha (more photos), then down again to Vi Ba and back to start. Total distance approx 5 km.
Highlights: Socialising and cultural exchanges VTH3, KH4 (Klang, Malaysia) and SH3’s Cement Trader, Non-Stop Clock, For Rent, Lubricant and One-minute GM (organizer), fully justifying KH4 Grand Master Left Ball’s quote: “The Hash is borderless”! Views of Vung Tau City and Small Mountain from rest area at Ho May Park wall. Photos at Golden Buddha during descent.
Special interest: Learning that the crow on Klang H4’s logo symbolises the birds’ prevalence in the city. On-trail directions via Wild Boar’s (KH4) Hash Horn. Circle frivolity courtesy KH4 and friends!
Down Down: Ốc Nóng Thảo (@Nắng Vũng Tàu). Smiling staff tirelessly served hordes of hungry Hashers!
Refreshments: Saigon Chill, water, softies, seafood salad & rice buffet, water melon.
Circle: Hares Mr T, Secs, Chippy, Bull Ant thanked. “Tough trail” rated 9/10. Two Hash Virgins introduced. Klang Hash (KH4) and SH3 visitors welcomed. KH4 invited to continue the Circle. Much frivolity followed with singing, dancing, karaoke, never-ending conga line and a ‘flaming’ birthday cake!
On on on: Mr C’s Speakeasy.
Next week: Watch this space and facebook page: @VungTauHHH for more details of next week’s run.
PLEASE REMEMBER: We can all help to keep run fees as low as possible by cancelling registration if suddenly unable to attend (the committee can then order a smaller/cheaper bus and fewer meals if necessary).
