Small Mountain and Christmas Party!

We welcomed 27 Hashers to the run this week starting at Hon Ru Ri. Flying Finn who set the trail gave a wonderful iconic chalk talk to the excited Hashers, he explained we walk to Mr Ket, up Hai Dang road to the old war museum, turn right at the steps ascend to the little temple, then up to the Cable Battery (an old French bunker) then down the road back to Mr Ket.
The trail was an easy walk compared to the killer trail he set on his first Hare run this year. The steps up to the temple sorted out the men from the boys with some Hashers turning back when attempting the stairs. We arrived at the Cable Battery where to the surprise of the French contingent of Hashers, who found out it was built by the French Military 100 years ago. With gusto they climbed the bunker and took many selfies with glee. We finally reached the road, then descended nonchalantly back to Mr Kept where we disbanded and raced home to shower in preparation for the nights big event the “Hash Christmas Party” at the Vung Tau Marina Restaurant.
The event of the year for all Hashers, 60 Hashers arrived at the restaurant on the bay eager to enjoy each other’s company and drink our sponsors beer San Miguel. With fervent passion we sat down at the tables ripped the tops off the beer cans and guzzled away, accompanied by a magnificent feast of well prepared food which was washed down buy the icy cod cans of beer.
Santa Clause made a brief visit (Basil) but fat Santa was hot in his red suit and after two cans of San Miguel the suit came off to reveal Basil. The many children who attend the party enjoyed the games organised by Samson, whilst the Hashers woofed down a cold one whilst watching each other.
Boozer (Australia) won the beer sculling competition but was hotly pursued by the team of other international beers scullers from Vietnam, Canada and England.
After the frivolity of the games was over many Hashers got up to sing songs, we had wonderful Russian music from Mother Teresa and Blondie, Irish music from Faulty Brakes, French music from (Pierre and his friend) and finally Australian rock music from John.
The party ended around 10pm at the Marina but continued on in the bus with copious cold cans be consumed by all.
We’ll meet again on Sunday, as always, at Hon Ru Ri: 1 pm for 1.30 pm start - in any weather!
