Run Report for Run Number 130 -- July 26, 2015;
Run 130 Run Report
HASH Scribe, NEXT WEEK, was on a pub crawl with SANDY CRACK and did not crawl fast enough to catch the HASH run or the CIRCLE.
A total of 58 bewildered and befuddled Hashers fronted to experience the joys laid on by ANDY CAPP and WANK MAG.
There was the notable return of our long lost Grand Master, CUNTSTUBBLE PANTLESS, fresh from his adventures with MISS PUSSY PONG in Thailand and efforts to get crushed by Wilderbeest and Hippos in the darkest parts of the African continent. But more of him later.
Typically, the run was set close to ANDY CAPPS place but took us through some new country, plus a bit of old. The weather was looming, with a big storm heading in down the valley to the south. Coming to a junc and tion there were pleas of "PLEASE head to the north" where there was no threat of imminent rain, but no, it went to the south and we copped it....big time. Up the hill to a cemetery with a view totally wasted on the tennants for the drink stop. Runners and walkers slowly drifted in from their various hiding spots, with most having been able to keep dry. Then it was a short unmarked walk up the hill to catch the great vistas and back to the bus for more drinkies and a feed.
The circle got well out of hand with RENT BOY dropping his shorts, positioning his "soap" and scaring all the naive locals half to death. The look on RABBIT's face when she saw what was going on was worth the run fee on its own. She got iced for her troubles.
INDECENT EXPOSURE continues his illusions of GRANDEUR and actually imagined he would be HASH Knighted into the British Order.... oh we find all sorts of them at HASH.. Well he WAS knighted, whilst sitting firmly on the ice, and in addition to his HASH name, he is now the right royal SIR SMALL DICK.
CUNTSTUBBLE PANTLESS was clearly to blame for the shitty weather. He sabotaged the run and tried to pass blame to the RA, DINGO, but both were iced. A very petulant display from our GM who is leaving again this week and took great joy in creating mayhem with the rain.
In all a good Hash run.
ON A SERIOUS NOTE
Can people please refrain from taking beer and/or soft drinks home with them after the run. On the bus is fine, in fact we encourage it to keep the fun going, but to take them home is against the spirit of Hash and ends up costing the club money. Thanks all!
Next run: Run # 132:
August 9, 2015
(at some location to be selected by the hares when they get around to it)
Led by the illustrius Cock stopper
Time: The Pack will take off at 3:00...ish.
(you are urged to be there at 2:30 PM to get your act (and ours) together)
The bus will leave from Patrick Wine Bar: 3/3 Tran Quang Khai
Cost: 120,000 VND (60,000 VND for Vietnamese) (includes bus and water and sometimes even booze and snacks)
Generic run information:
Ex-pats: 120,000VND (20,000VND less when there is no bus needed)
Vietnamese: 60,000VND (Why do we have a reduced price?)
The price of the hash was established to cover our actual of our primary activities.
The members of the committee feel the Hash is enhansed by the presence of local citizens. At teh same time, we recognize that few Vietnamese have the same level of income as the expats living here. An "across the board" alternate price was set for our Vietnamese participants. Roughly this means that we allow the Vietnamese to come "at cost". Note that we do not "means test" the individuals: all Vietnamese are welcome at this price (any who wish to pay the full cost paid by foreigners are welcome to do so; but no one is expected or required to do that)
The price includes: the run, bus, drinks during the run, drinks and snacks at the circle after the run.
Date and Time:
We will run every Sunday at 3:00 PM
All runs start at Patrick Wine Bar: 3/3 Tran Quang Khai
But see link above for a complete listing of our known future runs.

Why do we Ice?
Because icing can be good for you. Just compare the evidence from our recent run:
Hashing: What’s it all about?
(Borrowed shamelessly from the wankers up in Ha Noi)
If you like a regular social (or anti-social) gathering with a couple of drinks (or more) and a bit of sweat, the Hash might be something for you. The Hash is a very social and international, recreational cross-country running for fun activity. Put simply: we run, socialize and drink a little beer.
The idea of hashing was born around 1938 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaya, as a club for drinkers with a running problem. They called themselves the Hash House Harriers (HHH), named after the building were they started from. You can find more details about the origins in our (currently non-existent) History section.
Nowadays an estimated 2000 chapters, spanning all 7 continents uphold this tradition on a regular base.
Every Hash chapter has its own interpretation of this idea, but generally, the pack (the runners) try to follow a trail, laid by one or two club members (the Hares or Does). By putting false trails, the Hares make sure that quick runners arrive more or less at the same time at the finish as the crawlers/walkers/joggers. There are no winners and upon completion, everybody is rewarded with a couple of drinks in the 'circle' where the emphasis is on fun and spontaneity.
Why we are so famous!
Before the Nha Trang Hash had even held its first event it was already featured in Harrier magazine!
