Mauritius Hash Trash 385

Bénares by the sea

A very scenic Hash through lush vegetation, along the rugged coast, in cane fields, through a luxuriant river course. Fish ponds, water lilies and other attractions were seen on the way. The course ended with a little ‘shiggy’ just for good measure as we followed the river down to the sea.
All together a well thought out and well marked course. The weather was covered but the rain kept away. Just right for energetic running !

On On:
Eric donated four pewter mugs for the taking of down-downs in style!
He was allowed to try out one of them. Many thanks Eric !

Tomeck – for ???
Blob – for short-cutting right across a seed bed.
Leslie – for always being in front (in spite of being a walker)
Phil – for racing
Eric – for insisting that there are no rules but criticising others for breaking the rules !

Our Master decided that he had ‘done his time’ and proceeded to organise elections for a new team. The result was:

Our new RA was also christened “Wannabee” and was suitably baptised.
Our new master was also treated to a small glass of beer!

Smelly Blue ‘T’ shirt:
Missing (funny how this item is so popular that it often gets stolen)

Children’s award:
No children around so it was presented to Scuba who loved (the smell of) it.

Hash Food:
Many thanks to Clive and Arlene for the super food. All went back for more !
