We resumed our activities last Sunday with an oven ready trail that we refer to as the “Power Lines”.This was prepared by Secs, The Chomster and Bullant and approved by the Marquis De Sade. And so this is Christmas and what have we done another year older, and by hashing standards as an “Annus Horribilis“ with long lockdowns.
The trail itself was quite testing, beginning on Vi Ba heading upwards towards the first refuse bin on the right hand side, then the climb to the first ledge of the mountain and eventually to the fencing in Ho May park where the spectacular views of the Vung Tau City and Small Mountain. The downward return is testimony to all of those with “dodgy Knees” and the increase in sales of anti inflammatories in Pharmacies in Vung Tau this week.
This week we bade farewell to one of VTH’s favorite sons “Bullant “ (Gary, well that’s what appeared on his cake) at the apres hash in Tommy’s Bar at the Knights of the Square Table, and what is now become an integral feature of Sunday’s post hash .
The first down-down in Tommy’s Bar in nearly 7 months saw the Proprietor Rob supply the Farewell cake for Bullant and accompanied with iced Saigon Chill and a contender for the Ban Mi of the year competition with Chom Chom’s Roast Pork. Messages arrived from far away as Spain from Anagram and Snowball to congratulate us on our return and with an electric atmosphere from the entertainment group Perfect Jive Duo and Stuart Waring entertained us with some great music.
From time to time we dedicate a name to certain trails i.e Waterfall Trail etc despite no one ever seen as much as a drop of water there, so in honour of Bullant we can refer to the Power Lines trail as Gary’s Trail henceforth.
There was a presentation in the Office Bar on Monday night at the Pub Quiz to wish Gary / Dennis / Bullant fair wind in his sail as he returned to Oz last Tuesday .
Next Sunday is Boxing Day, there may be time to dust off your old Santa hat and one never knows what might occur at apres hash after another local trail, on on.
