Run Report for Run Number 81 -- August 24, 2014;
Hares: DOSAGE and JUST ROSIE
Q: New Countryside… and how to find it? Hint… give it a few months and its new again… no problem!!!
Around 60 of us departed Patricks. We headed South and then there was a little detour in a westerly direction towards the coastal mountain ranges
The Hares spent a lot of time trying to get through some jungle to combine sections of the Hash event. They could not achieve this alone but with the help of a local villager and a machete…. well almost anything is possible … The Hares followed the helpful local as he chopped his way through seemingly impenetrable jungle and they quietly worked with secateurs and scissors, clipping vines away so that Hashers would not be caught in a vine-trap, cutting off branches that were harboring the vicious RED (previously thought to be GREEN) ants, and tying coloured paper around trees to provide a trail.
Then it was ON ON along a newly grandly built pathway including handrails in the side of a mountain, that was somewhat of an imitation “Great Wall of China” The strange thing was that even though it was over 1km in length, it didn’t actually have a destination other than a small outdoor gazebo and a giant set of steps that were 1km total up and down. The steps were cut straight into the mountain(ette) and finished at the top with no other destination … than heaven perhaps!!!
The local machete man also doubled as our drinkstop supplier. We waited nervously at the remote gazebo for drinks. Time ticked on and it was 4.05pm… 5 minutes late. We could not hear a motor bike approaching, hashers were waiting impatiently… and then there it was. A big plastic swan was approaching via the lake with our man, busy peddling inside. He alighted minus his machete but laden with beer, revive and water. Hashers were amazed, relieved and hydrated very quickly by our local man of many talents.
Then it was ON ON along the side of the lake, through a bit of interesting countryside, over a stream which was calf deep if you didn’t scan for shallow pockets… and eventually home sweet home to the buses.
The Hares were iced along with many others including:
JUST LAURA, BOOTY CALL, TILL FINGERER, JUST JENNY and JUST JOHN, ANDY CAPP, JUST HUE and visitors from HANOI HASH.
DICK FROMAGE thanked the volunteers who helped the orphans earlier in the day…. About 15 hashers turned up. Well done!!!!
Namings: Just Sterling is now POUNDER for a variety of reasons, including his current name and also some of his enthusiastic pursuits.
The ON ON after the ON ON was at Patricks Wine Bar.

For those inclined toward armchair hashing, you may follow our exploits by reading the high literature called run reports. Read from our extensive collection dating all the way back to 24 February 2013.
For those who cannot read, but like to look at pictures, we offer you a wide selection of run pictures (including after effects)
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!
