RUN NO. 2257 DIPLO 22NOV2011

RUN NO. 2257
DATE: 22 November 2011
HARES: Sarong/Debra/Kim

A new hash year, a new committee. That’s funny; some of the faces up there looked very familiar.

After the excitement and jollity of Founders day last week a quieter bunch of hashers turned up at Diplo for a lovely run. All the usual, a bit of water, a small hill or two, lovely trails and scenic views as is to be expected in Diplo, our favourite hashing spot, and Sarong did us proud as she showed her virgin hares the ropes and got them trained up for laying future runs.

We had 8 guests, 4 of them first timers. Pat from Canada introduced herself to a great whoop of delight from Kim our lone Canadian. A South African and someone from the UK rounded out our cosmopolitan bunch.

The front runners started off in good form only to be seen milling in confusion as Sarong led them in at a different path, over the drain and off to the right, struggling to spot the very skinny paper. They soon got the scent and headed off toward the stream. Various methods of crossing were tried as some dainty girls tried not to get their feet wet. Some of us, we are nameless, managed to trip over our own feet not once but twice. Checks were called, yours truly not among the lucky ones to discover the on paper and set the hens in the right direction. With all the wending and weaving we only covered one small area of the pristine hashing still available to us in Diplo.

It was a nice tight hash with the hens all coming out more or less together. No one got lost no one was late out. Perfect. With all signed out the first hash of the New Year commenced.

JM’s Magic and Cheryl tizzied (not dizzied) around getting the hens in order. The hares were thanked and accepted their due rewards- water or ‘ads’. Guests were introduced, entertainment, announcements, then our ‘Survivor’ Judy was presented with a memento of her hashing years in Brunei as she will be heading off to Penang to settle in the near future. Those of us who have known Survivor Judy for the many years she has been with the ladies Hash wish her well and we will miss her tenaciousness, her pluck and fighting spirit as we have seen her take her first tentative steps after returning to Brunei after many months of fighting to survive. Her laugh, her jokes at her own expense as she struggled to do her own hash steps, Diplo being a favourite area with its paved road. The book was a marvel. Thank you Mad Margz for the compilation. Judy has extended an open invitation to anyone wishing to visit her in Penang. Possum being first on the list.

Hashits were mooted but the all important chicken being AWOL it was put off being awarded until it returns to the hashing fold. But, we JMs have long memories!

On On Magic

RUN NO. 2256
HARES: Dizzy/Ryvita
FRONT HORN: Tango BACK HORN: Trailblazer

How are all you groovy hash chicks? Here I am, the new hash kid in town being asked to write these words on the momentious events of the past week namely Founders Day. What an honour. I bow before you duly humbled. Where to begin? First there was the mysterious and perplexing start to the trail which nearly had the troops running out to Menteri (perhaps the pile of roadside checkpoint paper was construed as recent trash thrown out of a car window since some out-with our lofty group fail to keep Brunei tidy). Quick as a flash all sense of direction was recovered and pride restored when the trailhead was located and the assent of Everest, I mean the wee hill commenced. Up, up, up, up, up and more up, then down, down, down, down and yet, more down and then it was all shower up, tidy up, presto, change into your favourite musical character. My oh my, what transformations unfolded before my very eyes.

This peace loving hash chick who is having a hard enough time as it is learning everyone's name (since new hash chicks from all over the world keep appearing from out of the woodwork every week) and their hash aliases, finds she now has to assemble even more bits of information in her brain to try to guess who these gals (and in some cases gals in drag) are supposed to be, not to mention needing to not make any mistakes guessing who they are supposed to be (let's face it, sometimes that was easy, others not) and put a name or hash alias to the characters incognito. No small feat that, but this hash chick gave it the old college try and managed to identify on first attempt a few of the personalities gracing her presence e.g. Carmen Miranda, the Phantom of the Opera, the naughty nun, Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of West (such astonishing powers I hear you, say yes, I know, thank you, thank you but enough about me). The power of three was evident on the night as well with the three muchacos and the three red and white wigged lovelies I was beginning to feel lonely until I remembered that I brought me, myself and I to the ball. At least one other hippy chick graced the horizon (thanks Wendy).

With loads of star performances from Alice and her dainty folk tale entourage (complete with English subtitles), the girls in the nightgowns regaling us with their "Favourite Hash Things" and the Mad Dr (complete with white lab coat) and the Hashettes singing the Monster Hash, in a flash we were well and truly underway with our memorable evening, even if the chef and sous chef still hadn't turned up for duty. What a patient lot of hash chicks were were. Nothing phased us on the night. With a shout of "The show must go on" and an expert DJ (thanks Freddy Mercury (or was it 2 Karen), I mean Salsa, I mean Mandy, see what I mean?) and revved up dancers, the floor was a movin' and a shakin' so much that any inhibitions that had entered the venue that night disappeared for good. What talented gals you all are.

We thank you from the bottom of the very tasty punch bowl. Even the waiting staff were shaking their booties and other bits to the groove. Oh what a night. The food was nice and tasty once the chef decided to fee the masses (no pun intended Sister Hash Hound). Do you suppose he had run off with the sous chef and they changed their minds once they got word of our star line up of the evening? No worries, once fed we forgot all about it. It is good to be forgiving, right Sister Hash Hound (SHH)?

Top marks go to those who helped set up, decorate, organise, those who won prizes and awards on the night. Well done everyone! You know who you are and so do we. Sincere thanks go again to all our committee members for the terrific job they have done for us this past year. Best of luck to the incoming committee too. It will be full "on on" once the reins pass to you. It was also nice to meet the guests. We hope to see them again in future.

The paparazzi were out in full force as well. With so many great photos taken you are sure to be able to recall many fun moments from the evening, even once the ads haze wears off (surely not the nun I hear you say? Sister, I will leave it to your conscience to confess or not). Just flip through your Founder's Day 2011 photo album any time you simply want to remember your Favourite Hash Things... and then you wont't feel ... so bad. Thanks for a memorable evening everyone.. Peace baby.

RUN NO. 2255
HARES: Satu Lagi/Anna M/Jodie
FRONT HORN: Fertile Myrtle BACK HORN: Dizzy

The rain came down half an hour before i arrived at Mata Mata, and i was optomistic that it would be very localised and only on Jalan Kota Batu. This wasn't the case but in any event the rain had pretty much stopped by 5.15. It did make life rather slippery in places but hey ho.
Mata Mata was looking lovely with rain drops catching the light, on what is always a pretty run. To start we had to avoid a couple of drains and then we had a few ups and downs, but nothing very strenuous (Oh how time dulls the memory). This led into wiggle wiggle by the stream and a cheque (check - ed). For those who hurle themselves across these hazards, i can recommend a cooling down of the feet. It really does make a difference and lessens the possibility of a sprained ancle. We passed a very inviting pool but i think those infront of me were in the running grove, and as i was bring up the rear, a late night in the jungle didn't seem such a good idea.
All in all a good run followed by some very delicious curry - thank you Hares.
The on on was fairly short and sweet. The last one with the current committee.
Many thanks to all of you who have participated in the smoth running of the hash this year
I wouldn't happen without you. Scribe: Dizzy

RUN NO.2254 - LUGU KM 84.7 COASTAL HWAY - 1 NOV 2011

RUN NO. 2254
DATE: 01 NOV 2011
SITE: Lugu Km 84.7 Coastal Highway
HARES: Trailblazer/Pee Wee

Our site last week was Lugu which I am told is the most remote location for the ladies hash.

The path was rough at times and fair to say off the beaten track, many times weaving through the roughage, and grappling up the slopes, the ground was slightly wet, but not sodden thankfully. I caught up with Hana, another fellow novice hasher and she was shocked to see a huge prick embedded in her hand!!!

A couple of cheeky water ways to venture over and through. At second check I caught up with front horn Satu Lagi (which doesn't happen very often!!) and she was less than horny with a disappointing honk!!

Both checks were found by Ryvita and her guest Anna, well done ladies!

Hardly any feet left the jungle mud free or dry, and if they did the downpour after was sure to catch up with them!!

Bound together with mud, the small group of hens huddled under the tent for the shout-up. Some of the more adventurous even managed to dress up for halloween with bin bags and all! Well done ladies – it was a challenge for some of us just to take our boots off!

Trailblazer and Pee Wee were thanked for the great run. Two first timers were introduced, welcome Anna and Wendy. There were a couple of jokes and a phone did go off but without the hashshit bucket she got away with it! And also a Happy Birthday to Trailblazer!

Thanks to the hares for the delicious tuna and chicken baguette combo, went down a treat!
