NUI DINH - "One step at a time"
Hares: SamSon, Paddy
Hash Flash: Mr Dat. Hash Team and Circle photos: Paddy, Aqua
With weather forecast today is slightly rain and cool breeze, we welcome 34 Hashers which included Paddy who we needed to pick up at Ba Ria, where he lives. We all board the new Hashmobile to Dinh Mountain with absent from Terminator Family on holiday in Russia.
When we reach the temple at Dinh Mountain, we all hop down and walk up to the stairs and Basil helping out with English chalk-talk to explain the trail, also in Vietnamese.
Then “On-on” to those stairs to reach the shortcut on the left side. We all coming to the dirt road and reach the open field, we then walk up the small hill and into the forest; after a minute, we coming out the jungle.
We then follow the red tape and arrows that show us the way to follow back to the cement road, and we took the long way down to monks' houses, and go past the small river and into another forest, but we all coming out again in a minute.
We reach the picture spot, with the bridge and the Buddha on the lake; we all take turn hop on the flat tone pillar to reach the buddha for a perfect selfie!
After that, we all go down back to those stairs and reach the bus for a cold San Miguel beer in the eskies.
The rain has come with a little drop, worried; we bring our eskies to the huge tent of the monks just in time the rain is starting to get heavy.
After the last Hasher made it back to the eskies and some refreshment, it is time for the group photo; Viking and Faulty Brakes invited young couples who arrive just to avoid the rain for a photo with the Hash.
Then SamSon don the chain of office and start the Hash Circle. He invited himself and Paddy for today's Hares and nominated Simon for rating the trail. Simon give the trail 9.99/10 since this is a new trail for him but it is short.
We invited the Hash Virgins, Ms Que and her kids, Mr Dat, Minh and My An whom they all study English at ILA, Mr Dat from Vietnamese Fun Club, and 14yo Hoang. A Hash Virgin song is performed by Basil.
We then welcomed back Returnees Baz and Ms Trang, only absent for one week, Chippy and Yu Bok coming back after the training course in Saigon, and the Sinner's cup is awarded to Baz with the poorest excuse for absence!
With Sinners: Aqua for turning the wrong way to the dirt road, Faulty Brakes for his new shoes, Sec because the Ringmaster said so, and Anthony because he will leave the Hash and return in September. Down Downs for them - with Sec excelling himself with the Sinner's cup and the Tube of Shame!
We bring in Anthony again since this is also his 6th run, and he likes the Hash Name “Chom Chom”. It means Rambutan which also his favourite fruit in Vietnam. So here’s to “Chom Chom”, he’s true blue…
And final announcement, that VTH3 Re-Hash co-founder and On Sec/Hash Geek for the past six years, Uncle, will be leaving soon and has offered to coach anyone who volunteers to replace him managing the website, emails and day to day VTH3 communications with members, sponsors, media and other stakeholders; Sec volunteered for the job.
We then tell Hashers that our '25 years/800 runs' t-shirts are on hold while Uncle is unable to leave Saigon after a family bereavement. We need help to look for sponsor and if you know someone or willing to spend the time to check out suppliers, contact Basil or Uncle for more details (email email@example.com or use the 'Contact VTH3' page on this website).
Next week’s run, we have entered summer time and booking the bus company would be hard, so Faulty Brakes and Sec volunteer to set a trail on Big Mountain. Watch the website NEXT RUN box for more details through the week.
We’ll meet again on Sunday, as always, at Hon Ru Ri: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start.
