NUI Dinh – "Abseiling and swimming - all in a day's Hashing!"
The bus was packed full, and off we went - "On On" to Nui Dinh and our favourite swimming pool cafe. Co-Hare Basil gave a chalk talk, emphasising the need to be careful of spiky bamboo shoots and to help each other around the various "tricky" bits, including what turned out to be a highlight of the trail - abseiling back down to the road courtesy of the Hash rope, carried by Mr Smiley.
Camel Bone and Butterfly managed to impale themselves on bamboo shoots, but the pack otherwise emerged fairly unscathed from what had been quite a long trek through the undergrowth - uphill all the way!
It was a rather cool day, which was ideal for walking in the jungle - but deterred everyone except the younger set from taking a dip in the pool when we finally made it back to the cafe for snacks and ice-cold San Migs, softies and water.
Duty Ringmaster Basil called the Circle and nominated Taffy to rate the trail - which was awarded an "exemplary" 10/10, so Basil did the honours on behalf of himself and absent co-hare KFC (working again!).
Virgins Phillip, Nhat and Tuyen were introduced, then sinners Brenda, Hard Drive, Chippy and Camel Bone were charged for everything from getting injured on the Hash to taking the wrong trail and wearing new shoes! Uncle gave a pirouette Down Down demo as the day's "foodie"; then Taffy, Hard Drive and Camel Bone managed to score themselves a Down Down for reasons that were and still are very unclear!
No volunteers for next week's trail so Basil said he and SamSon will lay one on Small Mountain. Volunteers are needed every week for laying trails and various other hash-related tasks, so anyone who feels like making a contribution should approach Basil either on a Sunday or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The bus trip back to Vung Tau included a "preview" of the excellent quality 700th run hash t-shirts, which will be on sale fairly soon, thanks to sponsor Greg at Shirts North. Shirts will be held aside for those who placed orders - and then it'll be "first in, best dressed" for everyone else, although we've ordered 150 so only the super small or super large might be unlucky if they didn't place an order.
In the meantime, we'll meet next Sunday as usual at Sao Bien 4 restaurant: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start - in any weather!
