As expected, the British run at Mentiri on Tuesday was delightful. At 5:15 the hashers gathered by the roadside, awaiting the call to venture into the depths of the jungle along the trail of white paper. I was a bit late joining the ladies as I sorted out the water but it wasn’t long before I caught up to the back walkers on the first hill.
The walk/jog through the jungle was beautiful and peaceful, complete with the sounds of the hash: “On on!” and “Checking!” First check was found by Hash Hound who led the ladies in what appeared to be a lollipop trail. Then, not far from the in-paper, a second check was laid, causing confusion amongst the hashers. Some ladies decided to follow the in-paper out whereas others, such as Speedy Gonzales, didn’t want to give up and she found the second check. Back at the on-on, it was discovered that Pee-Wee had heard the front runners then panicked and dropped the second check a mere 10 metres from the in-paper. Despite the confusion, it was a quick but enjoyable run.
After the run, the ladies all gathered at Black Beauty’s house for the celebrations which were . There were prizes to be won through all sorts of games and raffles such as tombola, pin the tail on the elephant, and guess the weight of the cake, the number of lollies in the jar or the name of the panda (which turned out to be Flame…strange name for a panda!) Then it was Irish Bingo, where you had to sit down if any number on your bingo ticket was called (I’m sure it was rigged!)
Many thanks to the Brits for being wonderful hares and also to the horns – front horn, Chi and back horn, Bionic Bunny. We were happy to welcome some first time guests, not all of whom I remember names but we hope they will be back for future runs.
Hash-shit was given out to Zoe for leaving her keys at the run last week and so Mrs Pingu and I joined her as part of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in order to raise awareness. Hash Hound so kindly explained to everyone how the challenge started and what ALS is.
We also had a lengthy “next week’s run” announcement from Hash Hound. The run is at Lucky Gardens, starting and ending at the abode of myself and the Duchess of Cambridge. It also happens to be Hash Hound’s birthday on the day so don’t forget to wish her a happy birthday!
The evening ended with some lovely British food and special tea. Another big thank you to the Brits for a wonderful evening!
