From time to time we compliment our Sunday Hash with tasting local delicacies. This we week we visited Long Son Island, a 30 minutes drive from Vung Tau. The emphasis was to enjoy the free range chicken that we call Ga Long Son for our Down Down in a roadside Cafe. Long Son Island is the home of the Long Son integrated Petrochemical company, a 5 billion USD investment which we observed under construction in the distance. The island is connected by Go Gan and Cha Va bridges and another local delicacy is the famed Long Son oysters.
This week we welcomed back some old hashers including the enigmatic Doyle whose name was based on the Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The Down Down took place in a delightful setting where everyone enjoyed the local Chicken and cold drinks and unlike previous visits to Long Son it was nice to report that no unforeseen accidents occurred today. The trail had been marked the previous day by a team of trailfinders Secs, Mr. T, Chippy and Michael Havachat and there was also the option for those who are not so fleet of foot namely the Hash-lighters to pursue an alternative trail.
Apres Hash in Tommy’s Bar has become an integral part of Sunday’s enjoyment where further Pizza meals are served to sustain the hungry hashers. The weekly Knights of the Square Table meetings took place and the quaffing of beer continued long into the night with the entertainment being provided by Perfect Jive Duo. Michael Havachat (an 80s music child) gave a rendition of “Y.M.C.A” with impeccable moves, much to the delight of all present. The atmosphere and comradeship was evident with the pan nationalities explaining different sporting and cultural phenomenon of their countries and rounds of beer arriving at table every 5 minutes and as we say in Ireland the “Craic “was mighty (Craic being fun) nothing to do with other substances.
What had started earlier that day at 13.00 was still swinging long into Sunday night, chicken, pizza, beer, music dancing, it was nearly better than enjoying yourself. I nearly forgot to mention that the trail again received the 10 out of 10 rating, in the circle that Chom Chom conducted we welcomed newcomers and went through the usual protocols to ensure that everyone was informed of next week's trail being a trip to Long Hai.
We will shortly be celebrating our 1000th run and we are looking into the possibility of an away weekend. There will be a limited number of seats available so we advise you to book early so wait until you receive the email.
