Hares: Pekka, Chook
Hash Flasher: Kojak
We have 46 Hashers this week for our first trail on Small Mountain in 2 months. Our Hare this week is Flying Finn and after the previous week’s slightly shorter trail this week he has prepared a trail that will take us all over the mountain. From Hon Ru Ri we walk to Mr. Ket Coffee Shop at the bottom of Hai Dang Road where were are given our marching orders. From there we walk to 1975 Cafe where we ascend the steps taking us in to the jungle. We emerge back on Hai Dang Road and then follow it all the way to the lighthouse where we walk through the otherside and begin a steep descent that takes out at a familiar road near the temple steps that should take us down Ha Long road, but a slight difference this time, we walk to right and again jump in to the jungle and scramble down a steep, dry slope carefully trying to avoid slipping over. Finally we see the steps leading down the narrow Hem to our down-down spot - Cafe Uno.
Our circle begins with a celebratory Happy Birthday ceremony for birthday boy Chom Chom. Happy Birthday Chom Chom. Candles blown we turn attention to the Hares, Flying Finn and newly christened Hasher, Chook (AKA Graham). A successful trail and the bidding starts at a magnificent 15/10 only rising as more Hasher express their appreciation of today’s trail. After some arithmetical gymnastics by Ringmaster Boozer the final score 17.5/10. Well done Hares.
Several Virgins this week including a couple of Father and Son teams from Taiwan and Vietnam. One Returnee this week - welcome back Frenchy. A few sinners this week, mostly for following Boozer the wrong way and taking a shortcut. Time for a Hash Christening and Graham is now known officially as “Chook” - Australian for chicken.
With the circle over we the only this left is to remind everyone that the following week we are heading to Ta Cu Mountain for a weekend away trail and as such there will be no run in Vung Tau.
