Long Son Island - "Flying Finn's three way up and down trail"
Hares: Flying Finn, Slipper
Hash Flashers: Dr. Who, Flying Finn
We welcomed 41 Hashers to the run this week starting at the market situated near the main street of Long Son Island. Flying Fin who set the trail gave a power full motivating chalk talk where he explained there were three trails’.
The 1st trail was a straight walk back to the down down site situated 1.5km away.
The 2nd trail was a brisk steep rocky climb up to the crest of the mountain, then return to the start point and walk steadily back to the down down site 1.5km away.
The 3rd trail was the same brisk steep rocky climb up to the crest of the mountain, enjoy a run around the mountain top in the hot baking sun followed by rocky decent down to the start point. Those with any battery power left could enjoy a hot sweaty walk back to the down down site 1.5km away.
After a brief stroll through the laneways of Long Son we reached mountain trail that led to the summit, with in trepidation and excitement we commenced the ascent. After a speedy start we reached the half way mark of the climb, it was getting hot, but the motivated Hashers carried on to the summit but at a much steadier pace.
With relief after a 30-minute climb we reached the summit to be greeted by the smiling face of the Flying Fin. With a moan and a grunt (funny hash names) we set off to walk the second leg around the top of the mountain where we stopped at scenic picturesque locations to view the beauty of Long Son and each other.
The decent to the start point was greeted enthusiastically with gaiety by the now exhausted Hashers, at this point they could see the down down site in the distance. Without fear we raced down the steep rocky path, turned onto the home leg to embrace the icy cold liquid refreshments not too far away.
Ringmaster, Boozer opened the circle with a rousing welcome to the 816th VTH 3 international hash, welcoming all participants from all countries who have a common passion, Hashing.
Hares, Flying Finn and Slipper of which Slipper was absent without a leave pass set the trail. Flying Fin joined the circle and was thanked by the refreshed merry Hashers for setting a magnificent trail which received a rousing 9 out of 10 score from Peter (a new virgin).
This week we had twelve new virgins attending the Hash they were :- Peter, Huyen, Van # 1, Hoang, Van # 2, Huong # 1, Phuong # 1, Duyen, Bon, Hannu, Huong # 2, Thuy. We had so many excited new Virgins this week we leave it to you to work out what nationality or country does each of the new intrepid Hashers come from :o)).
As the rule is a Hasher must be absent six consecutive weeks or more we had no Returnees.
This week we have so many Sinners to many to mention, but their sins ranged from walking in Industrial Safety boots (thongs/sandals), getting lost when following the red tape (how ?), new running shoes (old one), lazy Hasher not putting their trash in the bin but leaving it on the trail (naughty one !) buying beer from a shop prior to reaching the Down Down (hic hic) and finally Sandy the (chihuahua) being renamed by Brice to “BINGO THE BOXING DOG”, after having a two paw dust up with a Mexican Hairless dog (Terminator’s dog) over food.
Mother Teresa & Boozer, who both provided an eclectic array of fresh sandwiches with an international style and flavour which were eagerly woofed down with vigour by the merry band of Hashers.
We’ll meet again on Sunday, as always, at Hon Ru Ri: 1 pm for 1.30 pm start - in any weather!
