BIG MOUNTAIN - Rowdy Water's farewell run
It was a 'watershed' run on Sunday in many ways (no, not rain - it was actually another nice, cool Hashing day). It was Rowdy Water's last run for an unknown time - but he was still carrying the bug that had laid him low all week so could do no more on his final run than guard the food, which must have been a major disappointment for someone who's been so closely involved with VTH3 for so long.
Ronald Reagan and Ice Water took the troops up Big Mountain - starting with a steep climb off Vi Ba (just past the pagoda, then sharp right up a tiny dirt track); turn left at the 'crossroads' and follow an ideal 'nature trail' around the side of the mountain, under the cable car system, and then emerge back onto Vi Ba near the top of the mountain before descending past the coffee shops and many sidewalk stalls including Big Mountain's version of 'monkey pagoda' (the original monkey pagoda is on the Minh Dam side of Long Hai). Fabulous views and lots of interesting "local colour" were the order of the day!
Three Hash Virgins were among the Happy Hashers: Basil introduced his friends Oanh and Tuan, and Taffy brought along his son, Olli - who was duly serenaded for his 22nd birthday! Apres-run snacks were provided by Ice Water and Private Business - lovely grub, many thanks ladies!
Run #647 was also a watershed in that it was a major transition among the mismanagement team, with Falcon, Uncle & Anti having recently departed and Rowdy Water leaving this week. Ice Water had wasted no time in volunteering to keep things moving along, and she was joined during the week by Basil (who will also be trying to recruit some friends to the cause). Taffy has now also offered to help, so things are looking very promising indeed for the new team! Any more for any more?
If anyone else would like to lend a hand, talk to Ice Water, Basil or Taffy, use the Contact VTH3 facility on this website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org - all offers will be very welcome, and it's an ideal opportunity to help "make a difference" in quite a big way, whilst having fun at the same time!
STOP PRESS: Hares SamSon and Ice Water confirm a trail has been set on Small Mountain for Sunday's run (28 Sept): "Total length is 5.5 km, with many panoramic views of Vung Tau Bay. We welcome all Hashers on Sunday!"
Meet as always in the Offshore Bar 1 beer garden, 2 pm for 2.30 pm start...
Reporting: Rowdy Water, Uncle
