BIG MOUNTAIN - "...and On On to the Christmas Party!"
Hash Flash: Fot Tret
Today really marked the end of rainy season since the city was affected by a storm with little raindrops over the last few days, but after Basil set the trail yesterday, today is sunny with cloud as we gathered at Hon Ru Ri café for the Christmas Party trail.
Basil started his chalk-talk to let everyone know about today’s trail: we go to Ganh Hao restaurant on Tran Phu street, then climb the hill to the nuoc mia (sugar cane juice) stall at the top of the sealed part of Vi Ba street, then down Vi Ba and take the short cut through White Villa to Hon Ru Ri.
Then it was “On-On” to Tran Phu street and as we walked past a newly opened restaurant, the security tried to invite Hashers to go inside. “Maybe next time,” Perro Caliente replied.
As we walked to Ganh Hao restaurant, Basil reminded Hashers to help with Hash Virgins since many things have changed from the old trail.
Hash Virgins Anna and Emily were impressed that this is the first time they have climbed Big Mountain up the hill! It was more gruelling than before since Basil didn’t clear all the vines and bushes, so itchy plants sometimes touched our skin. Also hungry mosquitoes, but they were prevented by Hashers' repellent.
As we reached the sugar cane stall, everyone ordered the delicious juice and we took a short break. After that, we walked down Vi Ba and the Hash Virgins were excited to see the monkeys being fed with fruit by bystanders.
Then we took the short-cut through White Villa and on to Hon Ru Ri where the delicious San Miguel beer was waiting in the ice cold eskies.
When we finished our refreshments, we took the team photo. Then Basil donned the “chains of office” and started the Circle.
A welcome message, and Hare Basil was awarded 9/10 by Stubble for a good trail and for setting it alone!
Then we welcomed Hash Virgins Anna and daughter Emily from Singapore, Mountain Shrimp's nephew Long, and “Grandma” Rita's friend Tania. We welcomed them with our traditional Hash song.
We also welcomed back Chippy, who has been studying; Illiya has been in Russia; and veteran Hasher “Old White Eagle” Super Teen’s granddad, who needs no excuse!
Sinner Basil was charged for setting the trail drunk (which is probably not true, but that's unimportant!), and while waiting for his sinner cup he announced that the proposed joint run in March 2017 with SH3 and Pattaya Hash is still being planned, but it will be important for everyone to gather at Hon Ru Ri by the start time because of time constraints in coordinating to meet the other groups on Nui Dinh.
And a last announcement that tonight’s Christmas Party will be held at Hon Ru Ri restaurant. Anyone who didn’t register before the deadline is also welcome to come along as we have room for a few more.
Next week’s run was announced at the party. It will be a Live Hare run at the Cross on the small hill at Ba Ria near Dinh Mountain, and it's rumoured that the area will be decorated for Christmas. Since this trail news wasn’t announced in the Circle, everyone should please check the NEXT RUN box for details.
We’ll meet again on Sunday, as usual, at Hon Ru Ri: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start!
