Mauritius Hash Trash 398

19-10-2003 Bain Boeuf David Shorty And Juliette Snow White #398

Bain Boeuf

David “Shorty” and Juliette “Snow White” Colbert

First Timers:
Yankee Joe, out of Oregon, 503363608: we didn’t get his rank I’m afraid, but we promise not to let the Feds know you’re here, Joe.

Second Timers:
Valerie with little’un Damien: Valerie has the rare gift of appearing elegant while sipping beer from a bed-pan.
Sheynaz, with her son Kay. Bit of a split personality is Sheynaz – last week she was Reena.

On On:
Ooo-aaar, ooo-aaaar. The Mauritius Hash got positively agricultural this week at Bain Boeuf. Cow bath? By ‘eck, either they needed it or else Shorty Colbert had been laying a different sort of trail this week. We tramped all round the fields at the back of Coin de Mire Hotel: we didn’t so much follow the flour (the heavy downpour that morning had obliterated most of it) as avoid the cowpats, mad dogs and dangerous bogs. The cows watched us running around lost: they knew the way, of course, they just weren’t telling. Selfish cows. The home-stretch was an energy-draining hike back along the beach with the glorious view of Coin de Mire to our right. Oddly for us this hash really was “short, flat and dry”!

Thank you Juliette for superb food. Oh, and a warning to the gentlemen out there – Gita is back to her bum-pinching best, so careful chaps and mind your cheeks.

Eric yet again filled the breach as only he can (thanks Eric), taking upon himself this week the Royal “We(e)”.
Sinners this week:
Blob who took a very short-cut.
Reena who insulted the RA by calling him a fat-slob business-man. While this is, of course, true, and therefore not deserving of punishment, she pointed at him while saying it, which is.

More baptisms!
Anand (got done again), for his stylish appearance and services to the “laydeez” shall henceforth be called “Casanova”. [Ladies, please form an orderly queue]

Smelly Blue.
The committee was faced with a stiff dilemma today: whether to penalise Barbie Doll for prematurely removing the shirt, or reward her for revealing the bikini underneath it. As it was, Blob got the shirt, and Barbie kept the bikini. Thank heavens it was that way round – the thought of Blob in a bikini!!

Childrens Award:
Remember last week when Stuart handed the dodo on? Well it was to Kay, Sheynaz’s son. Sheynaz forgot to bring it this time. Never mind “Finding Nemo”, it should be “Finding DODO!”


There is a meeting for runners, section controllers and others on Tuesday 4 November 6.30 pm at the Gymkhana club. This is the final briefing for the relay-run. There will be important announcements and stuff being handed out so please make sure that you are there.

Also remember your sponsorship sheets, we need money for ‘Befrienders’.

Next Hash:
See list below.

Next Food:

Post Script,
Some will have noticed a change in the secretary. If I should mis-spell anyone’s name then please be patient and forgiving for I am a Bear of Hardly any Brain at All.

On, on Decoy.

1. Andy is organising the Round-Mauritius-Relay-Run for charity. He assures us that all is under control except that some of the runners still haven’t sent their times in yet. Don’t let us down at the last minute please!
Anyway, he has enough volunteers who will each run either 5 or 10 km legs. More have volunteered as ‘reserve’ runners. Some more reserve runners still needed.
The idea is that we would set off on Saturday and run all night, arriving at the end (Baie du Cap) on Sunday in time for a reception/cocktail. HRH Prince Edward is scheduled to pay us a visit and meet the runners. Click here for full details
2. Training sessions are now in full swing at 5pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays at Gymkhana Club, also most days at about 5pm at Trou-aux-Cerfs. Come and join in!   It may even do you some good !!
3. Would hashers please note that there is a deposit (money) on glass bottles (beer, softies)! Please do not throw them away, leave them on the beach or with the rubbish (or even take them home).
4. Walks take place on most Sundays when there is no Hash. See the “Friendly walks” page for details.
