Hares: Chom Chom, Zidane
Hash Flashers: Chom Chom, Secs, Mr. T
Report: Bull Ant
Another Sunday, and another perfect day to be had. This week our hares Zidane and Chom Chom set what were supposedly three different trails around Small Mountain. So, fifty odd Hashers gathered at Tommy's for registration and preparation of all the googies. With the banh mi, fruit, water, energy drinks and beer all iced, packed, and loaded, it was time to head to the muster point, The Muster Point.
After arriving at The Muster Point, Zidane briefed everyone on the choice of trail and it was on-on. Regardless of the choice of trail, everyone would initially head down Phan Chu Trinh and up Hem 220 where further guidance was given. Hashers then had to decide whether to take the slightly more challenging path around the rocks to the Jesus steps or take the less challenging path through the bush. In true Hasher fashion, most went with the more challenging path. Eventually both groups would meet halfway up the steps to Jesus and it was on-on to the top. For some Hashers, the order of the day was ice cream and drinks at this point, while others started the descent.
During the descent, it appeared Hashers broke into groups and navigated their own path down with some following old red tape leading through a known cockfighting area and then leading nowhere, whilst others followed the correct trail. One group emerged from the bush scratching every area of their body that was exposed after a brush with some very nasty plant life. One member was unfortunate enough to be scratching an area the wasn't exposed (poor Mr. T), while another girl's itchiness was so bad she was prepared to try anything to get rid of it, including the application of vinegar.
No matter what path Hashers took to get down the mountain, everyone arrived safely back to The Muster Point where the usual treats were on offer with an abundance of food and drink.
With the sun setting and darkness closing in, it was time for the mandatory photo and to pack up. There was no shortage of volunteers to help unload at Tommy's where some would stay for the down down down. With great company, live music, beer, and pizza one could not ask for more.
All in all, another great day made possible by the fine people that turn up each week. Thank you.
