Mauritius Hash Trash 417

11-07-2004 Beau Champs Clarence + Jean #417

This mini Hash Trash is from Alans (mini)memory! Thanks Alan!

The Hares
Clarence (remember the pineapples?) Babet, assisted by John “the Apprentice”.

The Venue
A lovely campment in the Beau Champ Sugar Estate, Grand River South East.

Introduction to the run by the Hares
“Some of you may remember coming here 9 years ago” announced the Senior Hare. “Wow!!, he must be experienced”, we thought. “John helped me set the run” he continued. We knew then there would be trouble ahead, especially as the Hares warned us there would be no boxes…but they forgot to say there would be no flour either!!

The Run – call it what you want
There were no kisses (X) on this run. Two new ladies asked what we were looking for….”Flour”, we said…one of them, being a French speaker was looking for “flowers” so she was running all over the place. There were plenty of false trails (and trials) – the dogs enjoyed the extra portions of two parallel lines instead of the blobs of flour they had relished for breakfast.

Actually it was a jolly good run, and well thought out – thanks to the Hares for their hard work!

The Circle
First Timers – A lot (Call Alan or Bob if you have the names).
Second Timers – Several, so we can’t be that bad (same comment as above).
Announcements – Alan’s secret birthday was whispered to all.
Not Announced – The food was prepared very nicely by Henriette – Thank you!

The lunch, cake and wine was donated by Sara. Thanks Sara!
Cutting the cake was an emotional event where Alan realised that he really has some friends!
Next Hash – Jean Francois was not there to let us know where (or if he is doing it)!

RAs – Punishments
Mike… for making a deal with the RA to not tell anyone it was his birthday – as everyone knew already, there was no need for the RA to keep his promise not to give Mike a Down-Down (did you get that?).
Tom the Elder… when told that the RA was getting deaf, he thought that was a benefit as the RA couldn’t hear what people were saying about him.
Hares… for not warning the young ladies that their short-shorts would make the villagers sweat, and for not knowing that dogs, snails, birds etc. like flour.
Gilbert… for running past a herd of 50 deer without seeing one of them (he must have been going fast!).

The Smelly Blue
John gave it to Annan – reason? All take a guess!

It was someone’s birthday so we all enjoyed a piece of birthday cake, wine and dancing. A great Hash and a great location! Thanks to the organisers!

Having been present at the Hash, Pascale gave birth to a baby boy that night after seeing “her man” run so well. CONGRATS TO PASCALE AND GILBERT.
