The hare for this run and walk was The Tickler. The run report was given by Tastes Great who has anticipated a Tickler special with 60% dirt tracks, 30% bush and 10% concrete but The Tickler is getting on a bit and this was a trail with unexpected dangers such as running along the Highway dodging the trucks. The final part did venture into some beautiful bush redeeming the trail slightly. There was also a plethora of paper, although a shortage of checks did limit the customary chill time. It was advertised as 12.5 km, then revised to 10 Km before finally coming in at 8 km, so like so many things in life, shorter than expected. He gave a score of -6.9. The walk report was given by Ivan who described it as the best walk ever, but then he also mentioned that it was his first walk ever. He enjoyed the relaxing stroll through the woods and there were some great views of the city. He gave a score of 7 making the overall score 0.05.
The virgins were Agatha from Poland who came by herself, Duong from Ho Chi Minh City who came thanks to Sloe Gin, Binh was brought by his mother Thuy who came thanks to In and Out and Tuan also from Vietnam who Has Rock Bottom to ensure he came. The visitors were all spies from Hanoi in the shape of Cocktail Fail, Hao, Moaning Lisa and Sticky Stigma. The returnee was Merci Beaucoup who has been spending all his weekends tending the babies he made.
Mr Purple was then given an award for being on the Hash bus 50 times.
As the 4th of July was being celebrated the Hash also wished Lurprick a Happy Birthday by making him a cake and Serenading him in the traditional manner.
Liquor Cherry and Tug Muay Dong were fighting on the Hash there was concern that this might be a prelude to sex on the hash and so they were charged.
Merci Beaucoup was then charged with destruction of property, he allegedly ripped his shoes open when he heard the trail was 12 km so that could not run, He then convinced the gullible General Erection to join him on the walk, a gentle suggestion was apparently all it took. They were both given down downs.
Agata was then charged for being a chatterbox. She was even proficient at the rare art of talking and running. In her own words "when I was doing the marathon my friends couldn't believe I didn't stop talking for the entire run". Apparently her English is so good because she learnt it when she was in Ireland, she needn't have bothered though as Polish is Ireland's second language. This prompted a charge for Brazilian Hasher Flavior who is more proficient in Spaniash, the first language of America, than most Americans are.
Kick Arse was then charged with wanting too much, when informed that the run was 12 km she was disappointed stating that she wanted 21 km.
Sloe Gin was then charged with practising for the Hash, apparently this was the reason she couldn't attend the hump last Wednesday.
Broken Seal was changed with being cheap. Sloe Gin and Fukcoffee were looking for a place to stay in Dac Long. They found a nice homestay and were scrolling through the comments when the discovered that Broken Seal thought the breakfast was too expensive at 40,000 vnd.
Finally the Tickler charged Joanna with shopping on the Hash. Whilst he was waiting for the stragglers on the walk he observed her going to every shop along the route haggling over the price of crisps, even worse having finally made her purchase she didn't even run to catch up!
The On On was held at O’Briens courtesy of The Tickler. It was here that an unprecedented event took place. Agata, the virgin who was heading back to Rome this week, declared that she had had a wonderful time on the Hash, had been warmly welcomed, and felt like a true Saigon Hasher. She was sad that she would be unlikely to join us again in the near future and requested a proper initiation into the Hash and a name! Luckily the GM was present and acquiesced, the google thesaurus search was utilised and the chatterbox Agata was initiated into the Saigon Hash as Blowhard.
That's all for this week.
Sexy Eyes signing off.
