RUN NO. 2474 RIMBA 19JAN2016

RUN NO. 2474
DATE: 19 JAN 2016

Instructions from JM before setting off

The Hash run last Tuesday, was expertly laid by the elite athletes of Rimba Armada and Jalan Muara (Super Trooper, Full Steam Ahead, Sam I Am, Wonder Woman and Virgin Hare: Tiger Moth).

 Like the ‘Elite’ athletes that they are, and in keeping with their style, the first check they laid was very tricky! Bloody Hell!! There was some confusion amongst the hens about what was happening in the jungle, until the clear, loud voice of Mean Machine was heard clearly announcing…. "Checking from here!". Good work Mean Machine! (Give her a beer for displaying correct hashing protocol). Then the trail was found and ‘On, on, on paper’ was heard up ahead.

The trail was fairly flat and brought the hens out of the jungle at the side of Rimba Ar-mada and back to the tent. What was that foul (fowl) smell ??? Apparently Smurf strategically attempted to clear the smell from the drain. Wow! Now that is going above and beyond the duties of a JM. (Give her a beer as well!) The shout up began by the usual call of "Gather round, gather round" from Twinkle Toes. The five hares gladly accepted their ‘down, down’ for successfully laying the run and Yogi Beer randomly sang ‘Like a virgin’ for our virgin hasher. Nice work! The talent amongst our hens is truly amazing!
Guest and new member all ready to start off

Front horn was the agile Mrs Pingu and she was on time! Back horn was Hornbill, who wasn’t on time!! The Hen House Harriers welcomed two new members: Lykker and Steph. Welcome, Welcome, Welcome. We hope you behave yourselves! It was then announced that our beautiful, Lifetime Member Alison has completed 1150 runs. Bloody amazing. Well done and congratulations! It was also announced to read the words carefully next week about the rules of hashing. Otherwise there may have to be Professional Development administered in the form of scenarios and role-plays.
Pang sisters

Shit no! All Hens were asked to please bring a stubby cooler/coolie each week to ‘cover it up!’ and put your rubbish in the rubbish receptacle (now that’s a big bloody word for a Tuesday night)! Just before the beautiful Nosh was served, Peachi Keen and Mean Machine were given Hashit. Peachi Keen came prepared and stripped down to a very sexy 1960s costume, a swim cap and some snorkeling goggles. Very funny! Was it just me, or do you think that she always expects to get hashit? Why??? Anyway, next weeks run is an Australia Day run at Patsy’s. The run has a combination of Bruneian terrains. Prepare to go ‘down under’ and get wet and muddy. Wear something Australian and PLEASE BRING A CHAIR! On On x

RUN NO. 2473 DIPLO 12 JAN 2016

RUN NO. 2473
DATE: 12JAN2016

An enjoyable run with a bit of a difference at Diplo. Thanks to Led Astray, Patsy, Pedigree Pup, Peachi Keen, and Rachael for a well laid run. It was a nice 4.4km with everything we want for a jungle run; bush, water, hills and trails.  (Excuse the plagiarism but I’ve been up all night trying to book international flights on sale – not telling you which one or I’ll never succeed!!) 
 Hares relaxing.....

To be honest I’m still getting over my last international flight so was lagging at the back of the run so can’t tell you much apart from the fact a very red faced Recruiter finally overtook me having been lost at a check!! It was generally agreed that it was a good work out for us all after our holiday indulgences. A good length but not too long although Ola, Ariadna’s second time guest commented that it was ‘very moist’. 
Waiting to go...

It was generally agreed that the front and back horns, Mean Machine and Alice In Wonderland respectively, both did a good job. From what I understood Peachi Keen is owed a lot of hashit. No one got it this week because she still hasn’t returned the bucket!! There were quite a few first time guests this time although a few escaped before the Shout Up. Mean Machine introduced a Canadian living in Australia and with all this information to process, I apologise for missing the name! Tracey from the North of the UK (a different more honest species to southerners) was sponsored by Mrs Pingu. Stephanie from Scotland (currently still part of the UK, a touchy subject I think we should avoid) was introduced by Where's Wally. 

There were a lot of announcements!!(Remind me not to volunteer to write up the words at the beginning of the year!)

* The Kids Hash has had to introduce a Wait List since hashing has been reduced to a mere shuffle, due to 300 plus members. However guests who have already attended once will not be turned away and still have the opportunity to join
* Gin Trap offered to do a group order for MudClaws (Not what they sound like but a pair of shoes!! I have some and they’re almost essential equipment for H4, if you like to stay vertical!)
* New Zealand Run on 9 February

Finally we had amazing Malay cuisine thanks to the hares! 

Next week’s run is at Rimba and laid by Sam I Am, Full Steam Ahead, Wonder Woman, Super Trouper and Tiger Moth.  A scenic route, we thought, with no swamps we hope!! It’s a fairly level
route with a well laid path for 3-4 kilometers we think (none of our gadgets were working!!). On On!!

NEXT RUN: RIMBA HOUSING - Bring them sprays!!! Mossie country...

RUN NO. 2472
DATE:5 JAN 2016

Another lovely run in one of our favorites, gorgeous Sungai Akar/Salambigar/Mentiri jungle. Thanks to The Recruiter and Wonder Woman who laid two weeks in row, for inviting us into the goodness of what this jungle has to offer us.

Hashers were given 2 options with both approximately 3km plus an additional 2.5km road run or bus tour  back to check-in for white paper. First check was found by Ryvita, second check...umm as far as I am right (which is obviously rare cases), I think there was only 1 check until the part where papers split into white or yellow trails. On the white trail, no dramatic or torturing hills thus not much swearing and moaning to be heard so far until Peachi Keen flew into the air at the sloping down hill towards the creek and landed safely in Mean Machine's arm.

Yellow paper was a scenic route through jungle, a massive concrete structure in the middle of nowhere and the back fencing of RTB. Mostly flat and downhill, it was a nice little run through with added bonus of a wave hello from the security guard of RTB who happened to be wandering around the area. Back to the road with the choice of sticking by the side of the main road or the grassy area which turned out to be a muddy option! (irony of it being a pretty dry run through the actual jungle!) Some confusion for some yellow runners when white runners appeared behind them on the road. Did we miss a turn somewhere. How can front horn/front of the pack be passing the end of the pack?!
Huge thanks to Rush Hour as Front Horn and Jenny On The Block as Back Horn.

We had quite a few first time guests, but only one of them; a very well trained guest from Sweden (Good job Gin Trap), stayed for On On. No Hashit despite Peachi Keen being so well prepared in swim togs for getting one for three possible convictions (1. keeping rubbish bins for more than a month, 2. keeping Hashit bucket and chickens for more than a month, 3. came to hash with no plate for potluck dinner) [peachi keen, you're just asking for it!! But surely we won't Hashit a hare on her run]. Announcements by bashful Smurf who placed herself behind a bushy plant to avoid being paparazzied was about the Scott's night at Yacht Club. 

Next weeks run is at or another beloved site Diplo. Hares are Gorgeous Ultimate Five; Led Astray, Patsy, Pedigree Pup, Peachi Keen, and virgin hare Rachael. Follow the pink paper that will invite you to nice 4.4km with everything we want for a jungle run; bush, water, hills and trails. So prepare to cover your skin unless you don't mind getting scratches and tatty frocks and footwear as you'll get soaked. There'll be an option for easy goers, U-turn at the first check with a pile of 'Yellow Paper' will give you a nice and short 3km run.

RUN NO. 2471
27 DEC 2015

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year H3 Ladies.  Welcome back to Brunei and to Hash.  We hope you have all had a wonderful time with your families and loved ones and are feeling refreshed and ready to take on 2016 with vigour and verve! We are fast coming to the end of the holiday and festive season and our pack has been running at holiday-level (and some of us at holiday-speed after partaking rather well over this festive period!).

Another lovely run laid by our Hares Wonder Woman and Gin Trap in the gorgeous Sungai Akar/Salambigar/Mentiri jungle.  This little spot is fast becoming a favourite amongst the H3 Ladies, with its undulating hills, vibrant jungle trails, small water-falls and streams to be found near and far!  
First check was found by Rush Hour and Itchy Feet was fast on locating the second check keeping the pack moving nicely along.  Hash Hound did a great job as Front Horn while Jenny-on-the-Block swept along nicely behind as our Back Horn.   It was a quiet run with 20 odd hashers and no first time guests, maybe the lull before the storm as our Hash 3 Ladies arrive back and begin to carve out our trails for the coming 2016 year.

Our thanks to Gin Trap for hosting the on-on at hers and both the hares for the hearty sustenance that replenished us during the on-on.  Cheers Ladies!
