M90 & Waterfall trails - "with a real waterfall!"
Hares: Basil, Perro Caliente, Flying Finn
Hash Flash: Dr Who
We all met at Hon Ru Ri coffee shop at 14:00 despite weather forecast for raining and big wind; however, the weather turned out normal, with no rain in sight - and we know at least 15 Hashers run in any weather!
As Hare Basil led Hashers to Vi Ba street and start his chalk-talk, he told that on the day of trail setting, Hare Geronimo got an urgent call from his work so Basil set the trail alone and it was raining so he set an easy trail, but today there is no rain. So experienced Hashers Perro Caliente and Returnee Flying Finn volunteered to become additional Hares and we all did the trail with them.
We headed to trail M90 and Basil showed them the old tape left by Hare Uncle a few weeks ago, then we all follow the trail to the familiar open "crossroads" area and continued around the waterfall trail under the cable cars.
As we reach the waterfall trail, the sky darkened and let out rain and because of few days raining non-stop, the Hashers found the waterfall area with lots of water coming down the mountain!
After 2 minutes of rain, the sun shone and the rain had stopped, so we all put away our raincoats and continued to the top of Vi Ba road. Then we headed down to the nuoc mia shop to have our sugarcane juice “take-away”.
Then instead of following down the red tape to Vi Ba steps down to Hem 89, Basil took Hashers Astro Mom and Astro Girl to a short-cut through White Villa: a decision that later landed Basil in the Circle!
When we all get down safety at Hon Ru Ri, SamSon arrived to make sure the Hash is doing well despite the misinformation of the weather forecast.
After our sponsor's help with our thirst, we took a group photo - but the first attempts were with an upside down banner (see photo gallery below).
SamSon donned the chain of office, and started the Circle by inviting Hare Basil, who welcomed additional Hares Perro Caliente and Flying Finn who helped with today's trail. Sid Knee was chosen to rate the trail.
The trail was "excellent" and he awarded 10/10, but Hare Basil wanted to added 1 more point for the waterfall; however, SamSon deducted a point since everyone went on a different trail to the one the Hare set, so final score 10/10.
We have no Hash Virgins today, but we had Returnees Flying Finn with excuse "in Finland and open a Finland Hash", Astro Mom for excuse of being in charge of the house so she can’t often come to the Hash, and Astro Girl who have to follow her Mom. We award the sinner's cup to Flying Finn for the worst excuse.
Then Sinners: SamSon was nominated for chatting in the Circle, and Basil was called when Astro Girl told that he took the short-cut to the Down Down. So Down Down for them both!
Then announcement for next week's trail: with no volunteers from the Circle, SamSon said he and Basil will set an away trail in Ba Ria, but where exactly then please check the NEXT RUN box for more updates later this week.
We’ll meet again on Sunday, as usual, at Hon Ru Ri: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start – in any weather!
