SMALL MOUNTAIN - Jesus Statue and a long walk home!
Hash Flash: Viking
24 Hashers arrived by 14:00 at Hon Ru Ri, and then junior Hasher Ben and his mom arrived at 14:30 just as we were boarding the fleet of Hashmobiles.
We disembarked at Jesus statue, and Basil gave the chalk-talk. He reminded everyone that once they were on the dirt road and reach the security house with barking dog, everyone must follow the red tape that leads up to Jesus statue from the house, and then go down back to the house again and head down onto Phan Chu Trinh street and back to Hon Ru Ri for the Circle.
Kids and fast Hashers dashed up the stairs and reached the dirt road, while Viking helped the last group and Basil stayed behind until the last Hashers arrived at the dirt road, then we all headed to the house.
When we reached the house, the last group wondered if everyone made it to the statue or if they headed down without seeing the red tape that led up to the statue. At this time, Basil also remembered to give Viking the Hash camera or there wouldn’t be any Hash photos this week!
We managed to reach Jesus statue but found no-one, so the last group headed down to the house to reach Phan Chu Trinh street. We come to meet little Hasher group who went back up since they thought they were faster or they went the wrong way.
With some time to spare, Junior Hashers joined Basil’s group and headed down to the open area rock hill overlooking Back Beach, with many locals and tourists taking photos. We had some time to take lots of pictures and explore the area and after that, we all headed down to the street.
We walked a long way to the Down Down, but with our drinks in the eskies with ice, we soon felt refreshed!
After a break for eating, drinking and chatting, we all took the team photo with our sponsor's banner, then Basil donned the chain of honour and called the Circle.
After the Welcome Message, Messi volunteered to rate the trail 7/10 since it was "misunderstood". But with the reason explained by Lady D and Shaky that Basil has set the trail alone, 3 more points were added to make it 10/10!
Then we welcomed Junior Hash Virgin Lan Anh, who was introduced by her friend Pauly to the Hash.
Then Returnees: Stubble’s excuse was “resting in Russia and Ukraine”, Vadik “Vacation” and Ms Hien “Family and Work”. The Sinner’s cup was awarded to Stubble, who Down Downed it in fine style!
And then Sinners were the group of mainly junior Hashers who didn’t see and follow the red tape to Jesus statue while everyone else did!
Then announcements for next week that Uncle will set a new away trail near Metro Supermarket (if we get 2-3 days without heavy rain, otherwise it will be a live hare trail because some of it is near the beach and difficult to mark if too soggy!); and next week will be Erik's 6th run, so he will think about a suitable Hash name or the Circle will decide for him.
We'll meet at Hon Ru Ri next Sunday, as usual: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start - in any weather!
