A group of Hashers assembled last Wednesday to hand a total of 36,030,000 vnd, which was raised in the Red Dress Run, to Loretto. A big thank you to all those Hashers who contributed so generously and turned up in their red dresses.
The article written by our guest Lauren has now been published in AsiaLife vol 116. It makes an interesting read and you may be able to spot yourself in the pictures.
Despite the best efforts of our hares we failed to get the Hash Uber Bus quite as stuck as our counterparts in Vung Tau who had to be rescued by a second bus.
The next hash will be in the capable hands of Casaputa and Stevie Blunder. Click here to skip to information about the next hash.

The hares for the run were Shithouse and Turn Off, with Paddy Fag keeping a careful eye on the walkers. The run report was given by Creamy Tulips. She described a beautiful trail with rubber, cashew, coffee, banana, pepper and even paper. With excellent weather she had a good time and gave a score of -5. The walk report was given by Chook who told us that it had been excellent. Plenty of shade, varied countryside, not too many hills, great company and stimulating conversation. Unfortunately there were also plenty of cries of "where are we going", "where is the paper" and "are you" and these were mainly from the hare! At one point he even made the Hash double back before realising that his map was upside down. Chook awarded it -2.5 giving an overall score of -3.75.
The virgins were then introduced to us. They included Dieu and Adora from Vietnam who used Ginge Minge and Harmonica Lewinski to make them come. Anna from Siberia made herself come, whilst Maria from Denmark had the help of her dad and uncle!
This week there was only one visitor who really mattered and that was the venerable Sinterklaas. As this is a Hash of some repute there were obviously no presents as no one had been good. Luckily he had brought a big stick and plenty of beer to punish the reprobates.
First up were the Vietnamese who, in the short time that he had been here, had tried to knock him off his bike multiple times and burn him with their exhausts. Fortunately you don't get to be 785 years old with out learning a trick or two and so Sinterklaas appeared before us completely unscathed.
Next he was on to the hares Shithouse and Turn Off. His informant Paddy Fag had let him know that despite reccying twice they had still managed to get lost whilst setting the trail.
Then it was on to the British and Americans. Sinterklaas, it transpires, is a big fan of Trump, whom he feels has single highhandedly made politics interesting again for the first time in decades. He has been dismayed by the mean things that Americans and others have been saying about this inspired leader and was even more outraged by the recent criticism of Trumps great writing made by the British. Sinterklaas did commend the Russians whose philanthropic vote rigging had allegedly helped Trump achieve his rightful position as US president.
Bambino and Stevie were then called in. Despite the fact that they had been informed that Sinterklaas would be visiting they had failed to converse in Dutch. Whilst the language English could just be tolerated, Italian was certainly not acceptable on the bus. Just because you can't see Sinteklaas, it doesn't mean he is not watching boys!
For some strange reason Sinterklaas then turned on the Danish and berated them for their deplorable 5 - 0 victory against Ireland in the football. Come to think of it Sinter did have a slight Irish twang this year, maybe he has been spending too much time checking out the Irish lasses, sorry, folk.
At this point the septocenturian felt it was time for a rest and some liquid refreshment and so the circle was thrown open to the other assembled Hashers. Harmonica Lewinski took this opportunity to recognise the great hashing design of Ms Beans chest. She had demonstrated this perfectly today when she had bounced straight back up after a full speed 'Shithouse slip' on the trail. There was not even a break in her stride, merely an enormous break in the skin on her knee.
Finally Fukcoffee charged Tinky Winky. Fuckcoffee had stumbled upon Tinky Winky teaching maths without a license to a group of unsuspecting Vietnamese children in a farm yard.
The On On was held at Gangees.
That's all for this week.
Sexy Eyes signing off.

The hares for this run will be CasaPunta and Stevie Blunder. Setting the best trail of the year has become redundant. They will be competing for the more "river crossings" and "least obvious trail" award.
This trail will prove just as challenging as rewarding. No hills but a real combat hash trail. It will be a live trail but remembering it and hence not getting caught will be just as hard for the hares as the rest of the pack. There will be walkers, and other wimps opt out for shorter and easier options, but it is not quite Xmas yet so don't expect too many favours.
There will be a pick up in D2.
The bus will leave the Caravelle at prompt, so please make sure you are there by . For directions please click here.
The Hash always needs hares let us know when you want to set your trail.
The Saigon Monday Hash House Harriers run every Monday - surprisingly enough! The start point is always posted on Facebook so please get into the habit of checking it out if you want to run with them (details here).
The Saigon Hash House Harriettes will be hosting a run on the first Friday of next month. Details will be available in the preceding week.
