NUI DINH - another new trail!
Hares: Faulty Brakes, SamSon
Hash Flash: Mr Tu Anh
Today is again perfect weather, feeling cool breeze and no sun as we welcome many Hash Virgins at Hon Ru Ri joining today’s run with interesting stories to tell, as well as some familiar faces of Returnees.
Our Hash Mobile had some problems but still managed to arrive on time. We picked up Terminator, Mother Teresa and Family on the way to Dinh Mountain and our Hash Flash, Mr Tu Anh (Anthony) was also waiting for us there.
When we arrived, last week’s hares Flying Finn and Skipper took the chance to mark another trail for next week, so it will be three consecutive weeks on Nui Dinh after several local runs over the Tet holiday period.
Hare SamSon went ahead first to check the red tape, and co-Hare Faulty Brakes gave the Chalk-Talk: We shall go to the dirt road, pass the lake coffee shop and follow red tape that SamSon already check ahead; he will stay at the end of the trail to let everyone know when we shall turn back to the bus for the Down Down.
“On-On” we go with Terminator and new Hash K9 dash up ahead with Grozny II following; Hash Virgins walk at the back with support from Basil and Faulty Brakes. They really surprised to find many nature trails that the Hash has been and seen, and they wish they could have joined the Hash sooner!
As we followed the trail left by SamSon, we finally reached the end with mark on a tree and turned back to the bus.
On the way back, Hash Virgins from Canada, Daryl and wife Cindy, noticed a covered statue near the coffee shop; on closer look, we noticed that is a finished statue ready for delivery to the pagoda up the mountain.
We finally reach the bus with Hash Virgins exhausted from their first run, but they recovered with some help from our sponsor San Miguel’s products in ice cold eskies.
After some delicious fruit and Mother Teresa’s Russian home cooking, we start our Hash team photo, but no camera from Radio Wave and he will explain in the Circle.
A welcome message from Ringmaster SamSon and we invited the Hares, SamSon and Faulty Brakes to the Circle for a well done week with Grozny II as the nominator. Because he run faster and passed Terminator and reached SamSon first before SamSon could finish checking the trail. Grozny II gave the trail 9/10 plus today is perfect weather, so a 10/10.
We welcomed Hash Virgins Mr Nhat Linh, a third year student; Mr Lam a Vung Tau local who followed the red tape on Big Mountain to join his way to the Hash; Daryl and Cindy, a couple from Canada were told about the Hash by The Gardener when they met him in Nha Trang; Ms Ngan, a second-year accounting student in Ba Ria-Vung Tau University; and Ms Mai Ly introduced by Ms “Sweet”. A Hash virgin song was performed by SamSon and Basil.
Returnees UFO for “Lazy Bones”, Radio Wave “Still in Tet mode”, Michael for “Busy”, Ms Hien “Working” and Ms Quyen “In Ha Noi”. With “Lazy Bones” judged the worst excuse, UFO earned himself a Sinner’s Cup! Radio Wave avoided a Sinner’s Cup with his second excuse: “I present a camera lens as the Hash Flash cup from now on”, and Hash Flash Mr Tu Anh received his exclusive Hash Flash cup for our future Hash Flash! (see photos).
For some reason, Daryl and Cindy were called into the Circle; it seems as Visitors from Nha Trang Hash, although they told everyone before the Circle that they didn’t know what Hashing is - but still they got free beer!
And Sinners: of course Skipper who likes to wear slippers and drink beer; Cindy because her husband allowed her to have only one (non-Hash) pair of footwear; Grozny II because he managed to catch up with the Hare. And Ms “Sweet” charged the new Hash K9 for “no shoes” and Mother Teresa counter-charged Ms Sweet “There are no stores that sell Hash shoes for dogs”! Down Downs for all!
Next, we welcomed Tania into the Circle for her 6th run; Radio Wave said our Russian team has discussed that Tania’s hometown can see the Arctic lights so we got 2 options “Aurora” and “Arctic Circle”, with Flying Finn adding “We call them Northern Lights in Finland, so 3 options”. Tania chose “Aurora”, so “Here’s to “Aurora” she’s true blue…”.
Announcement for next week that the Hares shall be Flying Finn and Skipper on Dinh Mountain again, but with yet another different trail.
We all thanked Foodies Mother Teresa and Tiny Tim. And before we ended the Circle, Faulty Brakes announced that we’re looking for a t-shirt sponsor and any design or production factory that anyone knows, please let Basil or Uncle know (email firstname.lastname@example.org or use “Contact VTH3” page on website).
We’ll meet again next Sunday as usual at Hon Ru Ri, 2 pm for 2.30 pm start.
