Hares: Flying Finn, Slipper, SamSon Hash Flashers: Shomik, Radio Wave, Flying Finn Ringmaster: Samson Report: Faulty Brakes
At 1.35pm the hash bus departed from Hon Ru Ri on a preset trail on Dinh Mountain prepared by Flying Finn, Samson and Slipper the previous Thursday.
Despite a minor hiccup, people having to disembark from bus to allow it negotiate a steep climb, we arrived at the starting point where Flying Finn prepared us for what lay ahead.
This was a new trail for us, onwards and upwards along the concrete path, then turning into thick jungle and upwards until we reached the temple at the summit with views of Ba Ria and Vung Tau in the south.The return to our now familiar Down-Down base, at the end of the tarmac road, was facilitated by another concrete path on to the main road, and then turning left to an awaiting feast of cheese and ham bread rolls and cold beers carefully nurtured by brewmaster and beer doctor Buddha and apprentice Alan.
A total of 55 hashers (and a dog), hailing from Australia to Siberia, including Finnish, Irish, English and Vietnamese enjoyed our musical extravaganza with Shomit entertaining us with Russian songs and Paul and his brothers from the Irish diaspora complimenting the Hashers with Irish ballads and songs.
The circle continued with the welcoming of the huge influx of virgins and the trail was rated as 9 out 10. Sinners were punished as per usual. Overall the day was, by our own high standards, a day to remember for all that's good in Vung Tau Hash where we pride ourselves on being a family hash where parents can bring their children along.
In April we will have an overnight trip to coco beach resort in La Gi, details will be posted soon. It's important for everyone to make sure their email address is up to date by subscribing to our new mailing list.
The bus left at 5.00pm laden with cans of the precious nectar we know as San Miguel for yet another rousing chorus of international music and our new DJ Zidane spun some trendy music for our eager Hashers. The bus eventually trundled back to Hon Ru Ri where the eskies and table was unloaded and stored for next weeks run on Big Mountain and when Lou Rawles sang "perfect day" maybe VTH3# 820 was on his mind.
We’ll meet again on Sunday, as always, at Hon Ru Ri: 1 pm for 1.30 pm start - in any weather!
