RUN NO. 2113

DATE: 17 FEB 2008
RUN NO 2113
HARES: Speedo, aH Struth and Naj (now Eastern Promise)
FRONT HORN: Melissa BACK HORN: Trailblazer

A good flock of Hens turned up for the run (about 50?) and set off along the road and into the jungle. It was a good length run and front runners emerged hot and panting about 45 minutes later with the others arriving in dribs and drabs afterwards. All enjoyed it and had had a good workout to build up a thirst (see below the number of amber beverage they consumed )

Lovely running trails (with comments from many about how they did not know there was so much jungle at Rimba) with three checks, the first 2 found by Lee and the 3rd by Carol (now Mrs Pingu, who said "Lots of running and I think we did a Love Triangle ! "(the mind boggles!)

A few muddy legs and bottoms were spotted too along with glowing faces (remember ladies glow, men sweat). Hens were greeted on arrival with a selection of edible Valentine treats including viagra pills and Valentine cocktails, the latter to reinforce the effects of the former. As Hens stood clutching their beverages, the JMs appeared dressed in purple capes, black leggins and "lucky drawers" and burst into song with their latest Ladies Hash hit "Hashing Queens" Bravo girls!

The hares were called up and given down downs and first time guests, Annie from UK, another neice of Aunty Lynn (how many has she got?) and Carmen, an Equadorian Hetero Hasher.

Sparklers were lit and the celebratory mood took over. Suddenly "Stupid Cupid" (who some hens had spotted and mistaken for a fellow hen "doing a wee or a poo", but who had in fact been squatting in the grass in an attempt to hide!!) skipped into the merry hash circle with his bow and arrow, Valentine presents and a new hip! (It was of course our well loved Slippery Nipple who nearly went "hip over tipple" on the floor of the tent) He shouted "Titter not, for I am Heaven's Matchmaker" and proceeded with his own "Lucky Drawers".

Amanda Sparrow got some bells ( and lots of kisses) which she was assured would " lead him ( Capt. Sparrow) wherever you want". Madam Sin received Willy Wonder Pills ( now all she needs is a wiily). Readymix, a pair of perfumed thongs (for feet not bottom) and Trailblazer, a "Goody Two Shoes " bag (because she is one) Dizzy, who was reprimanded by the playful present giver, "Don't talk with your mouth full or Cupid won't come again!", was given G & T. Magic Roundabout got a willie warmer for her poor beau (bow?) who is suffering from cold in Brunei and finally Legally Blonde was given rose tinted spectacles which Cupid doubted would work on Brian!

Cupid then skipped off ( but soon sneaked back for a cold juice) and Readymix celebrated her 350th run and showed that she is all heart by havlng donated her award money to the Brunei Animal Foundation. The JMs then performed some "Hash Christenings". 164 runs Carol -Mrs Pingu, 165 runs Naj - Eastern Promise, 176 runs Trish - Ruthless Pursuit ( her H4 Handle) and 113 runs Sarah H - On Up. Alison took them away. Bini Hutan thanked the chinese ladies who had sent round some sushi on her "landslide move". Sarong got the Hash Shit because her mobile rang during the shout up and AMAZINGLY the ads (81) RAN OUT before 8 o'clock!!!! So unfortunately the Hard Core Hashers had to retire to Pee Wee's ( Claire's H4 handle) residence to assauge their thirst! ON ON

NEXT WEEK: NATIONAL DAY RUN (Wear something yellow with white/red/black)
SITE: Mata Mata
HARES: Trailblazer/Smurf/Madam Sin

RUN NO. 2112

RUN NO. 2112
DATE: 10 FEB 2009
HARES: Anna/Melissa/Boel

Hey it's Tuesday again already and guess what!! IT'S NOT RAINING!!!! so here's cheers for a dry run (so to speak).

Naj and I arrived early to get a good parking spot on Jalan Maura near Simpang 414 so we parked really close to the H3 signs (a reminder for us to pick them up and put them in the car boot so we don't get the HASHIT!!!).. Some savvy Hashers drove up and found parking spots halfway up, less distance to walk up and down!!.

All the hens gathered together at the ready, keen to go. At 5-15pm, Carol sounded the horn and dashed off with several hens chasing after her.

We started along the fence line and then down a little track and along the road and climbed over a small barrier - came to the first small hill and up we went. Trouble was there was lots of mud so we clambered along a long log except I decided to take a shortcut through the mud - very squishy and I thought I was in quicksand as I couldn't get my feet out!! Got hauled out by a passing laughing hasher and scrambled up the hill - lots of thorns to the right and to the left and on the ground and overhead!!!

We ran across a road being built, the truck was still spraying the road and away we went back into the jungle.

When we climbed up again, there was a lovely view to admire and then onwards we headed back - no idea who found the first and second and third checks as the front runners were miles ahead of Ah Struth and me. Heard Naj tooting the horn a few times and we finally staggered out back to Melissa's house.

What a great run, not too much water to wade through, small hills, beautiful views of Brunei to admire and we were all out safely before dark.

The JM's looked after proceedings, few housekeeping rules mentioned, announcements made and Speedo read a joke.

Congratulations to Anna on her 50 runs and 1 new guest from Yorkshire was introduced.
Welcome back to Ah Struth(back from OZ after 4 months) and Dizzy (back from the UK) also.

The hashit changed hands finally - new holders were found: Norma and Linda (for getting someone to sign them in and out last week as they didn't want to get out of their car in the pouring rain), Boel (for leaving the green tray of WORDS behind!!),and Magi as her guest Eva forgot to sign out. Norma did try to plead her case but took it in good spirit - she and Magi stripped to their bras and everyone was duly cooled off!!!

The hares put on delicious vegetarian and meat lasagnes with crispy green salads and lots of garlic bread. Such lovely comfort food. Thanks hares for a great run and delicious supper.

NEXT RUN: (Valentine's - do wear red) RIMBA
HARES: Naj/Ah Struth/Speedo

RUN NO. 2111

RUN NO. 2111
DATE: 3 Feb 2009
SITE: Lower Diplo

It was raining when we arrived at Diplo, it rained all through the hash and was still at it as we drove away. Fantastic! For us Aquarians and Picses anyway, who gleefully sloshed off along the watery trail. Nine ladies (yes, I know, the craziest ones) ran the whole hash, and the others sensibly decided to backtrack after the first check. This was quite far in and thankfully, Heather found the on paper quickly as all calls were soon drowned out by the drip, drip, dripping of rain on vegetation and we had visions of being lost in the jungle and washed away by rising streams of muddy floodwater…Well, kind of. The last time we did Diplo, we did take 2 hours to get out-in the dark and rain.

Lee found the second on paper quickly too, phew, and on we slithered. Anna did a superb and graceful save after a slip on a very steep and muddy bank…and then we were up into the bracken at the top. After more mud and more rain, we unexpectedly popped out of the cool and very damp jungle onto a pavement and enjoyed a clear run along the road back to the group huddled under an open car boot. Front runners were out in 50 minutes and the last ladies made it back by 6.25.

Thankyou to Readymix and Trail Blazer for a great run and easy checks.

NEXT RUN: Spg 414, Jalan Muara, Kg Kapok Kanan - Please park on Jln Muara due congested simpang.
HARES: Boel/Anna/Melissa
