NORTHERN SUBURBS (WARD 10) - "Seaview to the sea"
Hash Flash: Uncle. Circle photos: Gopi (Raja)
Foodie: Mother Teresa
Report: Basil, Uncle
The weather gods were kind to us again, with a cool, overcast sky greeting our merry band of Hashers as we dismounted from the Hashmobile at the Seaview apartments.
We went through the main residential area as a group, emerging the other side to see FRB Terminator vanishing into the distance!
The “water jump” detour wasn’t needed, as the expected “lake” was now just a muddy patch because we seem to have had most of the rain for this wet season; however, the mud still claimed “Supergran” Rita, whose long legs weren’t quite long enough to reach the other side!
The highway was crossed without incident, after little Oopso had paid his respects to the local kids who were once again impressed with his blond hair and blue eyes!
And so it was through the local countryside to see the bus parked near the fishing village, with bright red eskies “gleaming” in the distance.
Mother Teresa had provided delicious Russian snacks, which were washed down with “silver and gold” San Migs, courtesy of our generous sponsor.
Duty Ringmaster SamSon called the Circle when the swimmers had returned and asked for volunteers to rate the trail. Hare Uncle provided a novel shortcut by asking Ms Thuan’s young daughter Tu if she enjoyed the trail, then translating her “Yes” answer into a perfect score: 10/10!
Two Hash Virgins and their “sponsors” were introduced: Evgeny (Mapdraw) and Mr Hoa (SamSon); then returnees Terminator, Mother Teresa, Titanic, D&G and Ms Thuan were welcomed back. Several “sinners” were charged, including Supergran Rita for trailing a leg in the muddy “water crossing” and Uncle, who somehow managed to charge himself to gain a free Down Down served up by hard-working beermeisters Ronald Reagan and Misty!
Paul and Gopi were brought into the Circle for Hash names, resulting in Shakespeare (“Shaky”) for writer Paul and “Raja” for Gopi (we think something was lost in translation here, because he was supposed to get a Russian name!).
Then Uncle explained that next week’s run has been re-numbered to become 700, with the after-party following the Circle at Sao Bien 4, and everyone’s invited to “bring a plate” of their favourite food to share around. A cake, beer, soft drinks and some food will be provided by mismanagement, and a “games” sub-committee will do their best to ensure lots of fun for everyone!
Uncle and Faulty Brakes will set the popular “waterfall” trail on Big Mountain, with everyone hoping for rain this week so we can enjoy more than a dribble of water down the mountainside!
We’ll meet at Sao Bien 4 on Sunday, 2 pm for 2.30 pm start – in any weather! (All food can be put on ice until we get back from the trail.)
