6 Year “Re-Hash” Anniversary and
SMALL MOUNTAIN - “Boozer’s Bunker Buster Part 1”
Hares: Boozer, Secs, Faulty Brakes
Hash Flash: Dr Who
Report: Secs, Boozer
A torrential downpour on Sunday morning may have unnerved a few Hashers from venturing out, however, 10 intrepid hashers met at Hon Ru Ri to embark on, first time Hare, Boozer’s trail: “Boozer’s Bunker Buster Part 1”
Perhaps some people were still recovering from Friday night’s “Re-Hashed” party?
On Friday night, in celebration of the 6 years since “Uncle”, “Anti” and “Faulty Brakes” reestablished the Vung Tau Hash House Harriers, more than twenty Hashers gathered at Lucy’s Haven Bar to feast on delicious BBQ, washed down with ice cold San Miguel, while watching the sunset over the South China Sea.
Here’s to Vung Tau Hashers and the people that have kept it going over the years. Many happy returns!
Back to Sunday and under grey skies, we headed to Small Mountain, stopping at the steps next to Cafe 1975, where Boozer would deliver the chalk talk. He explained we would ascend the mountain from these steps and, after a steep climb through the jungle, we would emerge onto the path that would lead to one of the seven artillery bunker complexes built on the Small Mountain. We’d then continue on the path across the mountain ridge to descend at the Buddhist Pagoda, Niet Ban Tinh Xa, and return to Hon Ru Ri.
At the bunker complex, Boozer explains that the Cable bunker complex was built around 1895 by French forces. It had a four gun battery emplacement with a 360 degree firing arc, an elevation of 75 meters above sea level, and ammunition storage in the cave bunker 30 meters south of the battery.
After a few minutes viewing the complex, it was on-on to the pagoda where, after climbing down the many steps, we arrive at a locked gate. Not to worry though, with each others help, we were able to scale the gate and continue through the pagoda and back along Ha Long for the Down Down at Hon Ru Ri.
This week there were no Virgins, Returnees or Sinners, so it was a quick Circle followed by the team photo and some cool, refreshing San Miguels.
Next week’s run will be on Long Son Island, watch the NEXT RUN box for updates though the week.
We’ll meet again on Sunday, as always, at Hon Ru Ri: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start - in any weather!
