The chosen hare for this month's hash is Trinley (no hash name yet, but this will be his third); for those of you who don't know Trinley, please keep in mind that he is five years old when you think of possible hash names for him. And not to fear--this won't be a bunny trail--as the hare's grandfather, Reverse Thrust, has eagerly laid out the trail for our brave and mighty C. Rai HHH.

The 15 September hash will follow shaded trails on and around Doi Khao Kwai, the hill 4km south of town.

Driving directions: Starting at the Little Duck Hotel (the architectural
marriage of Potala and San Quentin), leave by the western entrance, setting
your trip odometer to 0.0. Turn right from the Little Duck Hotel parking lot onto Phaholyothin Road, heading north toward town.

Take the first left at km 0.6 onto Doi Phabaht Rd. heading west. This T
intersection is marked by a sign for "Napa Lodge." If you miss the turn,
make a U-turn at the PTT gas station 50m beyond on the RH side of Phaholyothin Rd.

Follow Doi Phabaht Rd westward, crossing the old runway at km 1.0, heading toward the temple entrance archway.

Before the temple entrance, turn left to head south along the temple wall.

Turn right after the crematorium grounds at km 1.3 and head west along a
narrow paved road.

Turn sharp left at the King's portrait at km 1.5. Follow Doi Phabaht Rd.
curving generally southwest for two and a half km. Please drive slowly
through the community.

At km 4.0 turn right through a high wooden gate (HHH sign) onto a straight
laterite road heading north toward Doi Khao Kwai. Turn right at km 4.2
(HHH sign) heading east on a narrow dirt road past a lumber shed. Park
in the orchard beyond.

The hash will start promptly at 4 PM to ensure that no participants are
left overnight in the deep woods. On On.

Report of Run #47: Saturday, September 15, 2007
Location: Doi Khao Khwai
Hares: Smoked Weiner assisted by Jolly Molly and the absent Reverse Thruster

Twenty-three hashers showed up for our 47th outing. Nine were male adults all expatriates. There were an equal number of female adults, three of whom were expats. The three others were boys including the five-year hare, his partner in crime, Henry, and Sean son of the Hash Cash.

The hare, Smoked Weiner led the way. From an orchard below the Reverse Thruster palace, it headed straight uphill. There were no checks and no Front Runners. Everyone struggled through the forest clinging to whatever branch enabled them to pull themselves up the steep slope. Dense forest cover kept the place in deep shade. The land was moist and slippery from the previous night’s rain but given the steep drainage, there was no mud. Following the climb, the trail led down to the valley again. Hashers had to leverage every rock and cranny to keep from tumbling head first into the void below. The trail wasn’t long but it covered a lot of territory vertically. Up and down that hill we went at least three times. Late coming virgins Monica and Jane were able to join the main stream by walking up the road which services Doi Phra Baht temple at the top. The view from the temple overlooking Chiangrai to the north was really spectacular.

Smoothie outdid herself with her habitual hospitality. There was enough salad, chicken, sticky rice and fruit to satisfy the hungriest hasher. Meanwhile some of the more energetic members took a dip in the pool. Eventually the group reassembled for the serious business of our hash. The hare, five-year old Trinley needed a name. He didn’t like any of the names proposed so he proposed his grandfather’s original name, “Smoked Weiner.” Being in a smoked mood, he likewise proposed “Smoked Pooh” for Khru Anthony, which the latter proclaimed he would be proud to wear. Carrie got the name “Stupid All The Time.” Noting that Sean was inseparable from his mother, he acquired the name “Superglue.”

Notes by Hash Scribe Wirgin Bluce


PS 1

Let the record show that Kroo Anthony's name is officially Smoked Poop and not Smoked Pooh as stated therein.
also, the temple at the top of Doi Khao Kwai is Wat Doi Khao Kwai, not Wat Doi Phra Baht, which is at the top of Doi Phra Bat.
also, no one swam in the pool.

with squalor,
Smoked Poop


PS 2

I don´t know what happened to Wirgin Bluce when he was trekking in Himalaya. I have heard he was rescued by helicopter.
Something must have happened because he had no clues what was going on at the latest hash. We were 5 FRB´s (Front Running Bastards) and we found at least 6 checks and we arrived more than one hour before Wirgin and the rest came back after their little walk.

But the the whole afternoon was fantastic, beautiful and tasteful!

UNIQUE HASH
the chaingrai mismanagement comittee are handing
total control for this unique hash to the infamous
m&m squad

To coincide with Marc's 40th birthday, the
hash will be moved up one week to the 13th of Oct.
The run will be in the Golden Triangle, taking you to
3 different countries. After hash festivities will be
along the Mekong River. The cost will be 500 baht for
Thai citizens and 1000 baht for farang. The
difference in price is because the cost of entry into
Lao and Burma is cheaper for Thai citizens.

Since the M&M squad will be arranging bus transport,
entry permits, boats, food,beer etc., they need an
accurate head count by this Saturday. If you will be
joining, please let me know as soon as possible. The
M&M squad has a reputation for exceptionally lively
hashes so we anticipate 40 - 50 people from Chiang
Mai, BKK and even Japan. This is one of those hashes
you don't want to miss.

HISTORIC 3 COUNTRIES HASH

THAILAND--MYANMAR--LAOS

over 60 hashers of many nationalities from thailand
and cambodia attended this historic 3 countries hash
on 13th october.
the hash started in typical fashion,start slow and
taper off when it took 2 hours for the coach driver to
arrive at the starting point,but on reflection he did
his best to manoevure cross country to the start
point.
the first leg of about 5k took just under an hour
for the FRBS to arrive at the chiang saen immigration
and were quickly ushered on to to the waiting boats by
the smiling thai officials without any fuss or
problem.
the boats arrived at the myanmar casino after a
choppy crossing due to a cloud burst on the laos side
this time we were welcomed by the myanmar officials
who once again ushered the hashers through.
here we were given the option of joining the FRBS
on a run of about 4k or taking a stroll around the
casino grounds to a restaurant were myanmar beer and
snacks would be served,i was reluctantly persuaded to
take the easy option and was first in line to sample
the excellent myanmar beer.
the next boat ride took the hashers over to laos
again past the laos officials without any fuss,this
time yours truly had no option but to bravely hash
through dense bush and mud after the earlier cloud
burst for at least 3k only to be heckled by the words
"why are we waiting" by some of the hashers waiting on
the boat for the final leg.
the boats dropped the hashers off at a restaurant on
the mekong river were the beer sot,excellent food and
the comedy show in the circle all added to this
historic hash that will never be forgotten
hangover hash
marc lavoie(paddy boy)mike (godzilla) and friends
were not satisfied in spending many hours organising
the 3 countries hash so to coinside with marcs 40th
birthday the memorable weekend was concluded with marc
and his charming wife inviting all hashers to a
birthday hash/party at his beautiful land behind
chaingrai university,once again the hospitality and
circle banter knew no bounds.
many thanks to marc and fellow hashers
on on

Hi all
Saturday Nov 17 is our anniversary run. It will take place near my farm off the road to the Khon Korn waterfalls. To get there starting at the Big C, go south towards Bangkok on Highway 1 about 10 kilometers. At the traffic light turn right. Drive past the white temple to the end of the road (about 4 km). At the three way intersection turn left. Here you will go another 5 km or so and then turn right at the sign which says Khun Korn Waterfalls (HHH sign). Go along this road about 4 km. Where the road sharply to the left at a temple, (HHH sign) you turn into the temple on your left and park. It will take about 25 minutes to get there from the Big C.
If you are already in town, drive south through Den Haa on the old Chiangmai road. About 15 km beyond Den Haa you come to the run off to Khun Korn Waterfalls. Turn right there and follow the instructions as above. It will take about 20 minutes to get there from the bridge at Pratu Chiangmai.
There will be a short cut for young children and those otherwise not able to do the whole route. That cuts out the most challenging (and exciting) part. So this run is open to all.
Hope to see you at 4 pm sharp.
On! On!

This Saturday will be the 4th Annual Chiang Rai Hash. To celebrate the occasion, Wild Woman and Wirgin Bluce have offered to host the party at their property on the Khun Korn Waterfall road. Wild Woman will wine and dine attendees but she asks you contact her directly at 081-602-1666 so that she knows how much food to prepare. Also the new GM and supporting offices will be chosen so we need your nominations and votes. Because the sun is setting earlier, THE HASH WILL START AT 3-30PM
There will be two courses - an easy course for the children and the less adventurous and a longer course that offers some of the most spectacular scenery of any CR hash. Wirgin Bluce has already sent out driving directions (SEE ABOVE POST) but if you have any questions, give me a call.

Hope to see you Sat. and bring the kids!

HHH have been around for a couple of years here in Chiang Rai. It is good fun, you meet some nice people and your body has to move a little. And after you have a cold drink (beer, coke, water etc) with your friends.


Can you tell me more about HHH?
I have been living out of the country for over a decade. A Bangkok native, but will be living in Chiang Rai soon. I am looking for activities or social events that my Fahrang husband will enjoy and feel comfortable with, particularly as a warm up for his new life in Chiang Rai.

Hashing . . . it's a mixture of athleticism and sociability, hedonism and hard work; a refreshing break from the nine-to-five routine. Hashing is an exhilaratingly fun combination of running, orienteering, and partying, where bands of harriers and harriettes chase hares on eight-to-ten kilometer-long trails through town, country, jungle, and desert, all in search of exercise, camaraderie, and good times.
Hashing, as we know it today, began in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1938, when a group of restive British company men started a hare & hounds running group. They named the group after their meeting place, the Selangor Club, aka the "Hash House." Hash House Harrier runs were patterned after the traditional British public school paper chase. A "hare" would be given a short head start to blaze a trail, marking his devious way with shreds of paper, soon to be pursued by a shouting pack of "harriers." Only the hare knew where he was going . . . the harriers followed his marks to stay on trail. Apart from the excitement of chasing down the wily hare, solving the hare's marks and reaching the end was its own reward, for there, thirsty harriers would find a tub of iced-down beer.

Hashing died during World War II (Japanese occupying forces being notoriously opposed to civilian fun), but came back to life in the post-war years, spreading slowly through Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, and New Zealand, then exploding in popularity in the late 70s and early 80s. Today there are thousands of Hash House Harrier clubs in all parts of the world, complete with newsletters, directories, and regional and world hashing conventions.

Despite its growth, hashing hasn't strayed far from its British and Malaysian roots. A typical hash "kennel" is a loosely-organized group of 20-40 men and women who meet weekly or biweekly to chase the hare. We follow chalk, flour, or paper, and the trails are never boring. When forced to, we'll run the occasional street or alley, but in general we prefer shiggy . . . fields, forests, jungles, swamps, streams, fences, storm drains, and cliffs. And although some of today's health-conscious hashers may shun a cold beer in favor of water or a diet soda, trail's end is still a party. Perhaps that's why they call us the "drinking club with a running problem!"


So . . . if you'd like to spice up your running program with fun, good company, new surroundings, and physical challenge, try hashing. Just remember one thing . . . never wear new shoes to the hash!

Report of Run #51: Saturday, January 19, 2008

Hares: Helping Hand assisted by Hand Cock

Location: South bank of Mae Kok River west of Chiangrai Beach

Twenty five showed up for S2ATO 51st hash including twelve male adults and eight females plus four kids. As usual all the adult males were expats and all the Thai adults were females. The kids were a rainbow in between.

Helping Hand started the group off with a helping hand. Adolescents Spare Wheel and his side kick Dollar set a fast pace from the beginning. Unfortunately neither was particularly cognoscente of the rules governing the use of paper. They ignored the first check and happily led the pack for another ten minutes until Reverse Thruster asked who had last seen paper. At this point the group was in the middle of an empty flood plain which required the hashers to scatter in every direction. Doesn’t Matter Horn discovered a trail above the river bank and Do It Yourself ran straight up the steep bank scattering paper as he went. The crowd tried to follow but a herd of twenty cows began to chase Super Glue and Pat on the Back. Young Darling was first to reach the bank but slipped half way up. The sight of blood prompted the sweep Hand Cock to declare that the trail headed in a different direction.

The trail squeezed between the river’s edge and a suburban populated area. There were tracks crisscrossing the area from every direction. It seems our hares could not resist a crossing without making a check. Hence there were checks every 200 meters. However the narrow expanse of the coastal plain required multiple false trail lines to prevent hashers from falling upon “in” trail on the way out and vice versa. Unfortunately Do It Yourself unconstrained by the absent Do It Better, finding himself along on a different papered track, endeavored improve the trail by running in reverse order spreading paper where it was missing along the way. This created multiple parallel tracks adding unneeded complexity to the initial efforts of our Helping Hand.

In the absence of the beloved Nam Ron and Barefoot Beer Lao Bob, MANipulator declined to compete and contented herself walking amongst the masses. Between Wild Woman, Joy Stick, the two Oileds and Tight Socket she was rarely at a loss for company.

The booze was securely locked in the scribe’s vehicle. So FRB’s had to suffer with coffee at a nearby resort until Wirgin Bluce appeared with the keys. They quickly made up for lost time. Eventually G.M. Shocking was torn long enough from his bottle to call a circle. Ably assisted by Pat on the Back and daughter Boy Magnet there was never a shortage of toasting materials. The hares were so tickled to be honoured, in spite of their efforts that they danced a little jig to celebrate. Mark, son of Young Darling, was likewise toasted as a virgin. Young Darling got his name in recognition of his proclivity to preface all men’s names with “young,” regardless of age and all women’s names with “darling” regardless of looks and disposition. Various epithets were proposed for his better half Pom including Pommy Bastard, Pom Express, Old Pom and Old Fruit but the decision was put off to another time, should she ever reappear. Likewise Rob, who runs a pickling business, attracted names like Thai Prick, Thai Pecker and Pickles but as this was only his second run, the G.M. postponed the selection to next month.

Ever the long range planner the G.M. called Loose Spoke into the circle in recognition of his willingness to hare the February hash. Thus lubricated, the spirit of volunteerism flowed through the pack and soon Flaps and Do It Yourself came forward to do March and May respectively.

The G.M. expressed a desire for club memorabilia particularly t-shirts. Such items are usually issued to mark special events like our recent 50th hash or to recognize individuals who have done a fixed number of hashes like mile stones. The greatest challenge is to identify some graphic design capacity. Wirgin Bluce promised to inquire among other hash groups about how they got their art work done.

Flaps took over the circle in order to criticize Young Darling. The latter had polluted the environment by spilling his blood upon pristine bank side. He didn’t even stop to clean up the mess he created, after scattering red-tinted sand in every direction. With this admonishment to be environmentally friendly, the circle broke up to resume discussions at the follow up On! On!

Here are the directions to the February 16th hash:



As you drive north from central Chiang Rai on the super highway, you will eventually reach the traffic light at the road to the airport. About 900 meters beyond the traffic light you will see Bandu market on the left and the pedestrian bridge over the highway.



About 200 meters past Bandu market, turn left toward Pong Prabaht waterfall and Pong Prabaht resort. There are lots of signs in Thai on the corner. The road is #1151.



After following this road about 7.5 km, it will make a 90 degree curve to the left. There is a sign here, marking a right turn to Pong Prabaht resort (but don't turn to the right – follow the road to the left.



After making the curve to the left, you will pass the Huai Luang reservoir on the left. About 300 meters after the curve, you should see the blue Soi 6 sign (and the HHH sign, as well).



Turn left onto Soi 6 and follow this road for about 2.9 km to the meeting point (HHH sign).



We will start the hash at 3:30. See you there.



On! On!

Report of Run #52: Saturday, February 16, 2008
Hare: Loose Spoke
Location: Ban Du Forest below Pong Pra Baht Waterfalls near Huai Luang Reservoir

The 52d run turned out by some odd coincidence to be remarkably similar to the 41st run (March 17, 2008). Even the hare was the same. It started and ended in the same location although the routes out and in seemed to be reversed. The report of that 41st run is attached.

The hardest part of the run was finding the starting point. One was to travel 7.5 kilometers from the Asia Highway and then do a sharp left where the signs point right to Pong Pra Baht. That was our hare’s way of favouring those who can read Thai. The Huai Luang Reservoir was to be just around some corner. That of course is where we found the reservoir after traveling several kilometers along the road. Those who kept the faith and progressed this far, were then rewarded by a series of four reassuring signs as they drove ever deeper into the wilderness.

A total of 28 people showed up including three kids. Seventeen were farang of whom all but three were men. There were eight adult Thais, all female except for one. Nine were virgins, three female and six males: three hailed from England, three more came from Belgium, there was one Australian and two Thai boys.

All newly arrived hashers were immediately greeted by Hash Cash, Do It Yourself with his hand out to collect the meet’s contribution. Names thus recorded in his attendance list stand as concrete testimony as to how one wasted this Saturday afternoon.

The run began full of trepidation. The Hash Beer had yet to arrive. Her better half, Hand Cock confessed that Helping Hand had escaped to Chiang Mai but promised to appear before the run ended with his vehicle fully loaded with iced beer.

Some of the virgins never miss a trick. Uncle Colin loaded a back pack with water and compelled his ten-year old nephew Bart to carry it. Fifteen-year old brother Bond was wise enough to hide at the time. His better half Deidre avoided confrontation by turning back after the first hill.

Nam Ron accompanied by Bush Wacker and closely followed by MANipulator, Do It Yourself, Stoned and Pickled Prik set a fast pace up the hill. By the time they got to the second hill, they literally smelled the freshly arrived beer. Ignoring paper and the protestations of the sweeping Loose Spoke, they turned in the direction of the wind and arrived back at the parking lot just in time to welcome the belated Hand Cock.

The more virtuous hashers like Well Oiled, Doesn’t Matter Horn, Scotch on the Rocks and your faithful correspondent led the unsuspecting virgins around the well-littered course. All remarked upon bucolic scene while politely ignoring the white mess of paper which the hare had left behind. Virgins who couldn’t maintain this leisurely pace joined the stragglers headed by Wild Woman, Oiled Well, Boy Magnet, and Pat on the Back inevitably accompanied by Superglue. These recidivists finally arrived at the finishing point almost an hour after the short-cutting Front Running Bastards.

By this time the time the FRBs abetted by the temporary Hash Beer, had drunk far more than the club could afford in beer so the G.M. Shocking quickly called for a circle. The hare, Loose Spoke and virgins were honoured with the usual down-downs then attention shifted to Rob, whose name selection had been deferred from the last gathering. The crew quickly voted to name him “Pickled Prik” in recognition of his pickling contribution to local cuisine.

Past G.M. Nam Ron then took over and ordered this faithful correspondent, Wild Woman, Well Oiled and Oiled Well into the circle. Why, he asked, did these folks arrive late. Well Oiled protested that he did not arrive late. According to him, the others arrived early. No deed, good or bad, goes unpunished and hence these culprits were also honoured with the usual down-downs.

The business thus concluded the group broke up, led off by the hare, Loose Spoke who was eager to get away from the mess he had created. Too late we realized that the better half of Doesn’t Matter Horn had managed to elude a name despite attending at least three times. That outstanding piece of business will not be neglected at the next circle.

Report of Run #52: Saturday, February 16, 2008
Hare: Loose Spoke
Location: Ban Du Forest below Pong Pra Baht Waterfalls near Huai Luang Reservoir

The 52d run turned out by some odd coincidence to be remarkably similar to the 41st run (March 17, 2008). Even the hare was the same. It started and ended in the same location although the routes out and in seemed to be reversed. The report of that 41st run is attached.

The hardest part of the run was finding the starting point. One was to travel 7.5 kilometers from the Asia Highway and then do a sharp left where the signs point right to Pong Pra Baht. That was our hare’s way of favouring those who can read Thai. The Huai Luang Reservoir was to be just around some corner. That of course is where we found the reservoir after traveling several kilometers along the road. Those who kept the faith and progressed this far, were then rewarded by a series of four reassuring signs as they drove ever deeper into the wilderness.

A total of 28 people showed up including three kids. Seventeen were farang of whom all but three were men. There were eight adult Thais, all female except for one. Nine were virgins, three female and six males: three hailed from England, three more came from Belgium, there was one Australian and two Thai boys.

Hash House Harriers

The Chiangrai “Start slowly and taper off “ Hash
Founded 15 November 2003





Report of Run #53: Saturday, March 15, 2008



Hare: Flaps assisted by Joy Stick



Location: Huay Sak



Twenty-one intrepid hashers showed up for the 53d run. Nine were female and seven of these were Thai. The rest were expatriate men including one adolescent. This is a good turn out considering that many of the core membership had temporarily abandoned Chiangrai for greener pastures.



The hash had trouble getting started. In the original notice the Hash Scribe confused everyone by announcing a 3 p.m. starting time. This was soon corrected to 3:30 but it did not prevent the Oileds showing up a half an hour late.



We knew we were in for something special when Flaps, the hare announced that the run would take the FRBs 45 minutes. Walkers might take somewhere between an hour and a day. A car along with some water would be waiting at the half way point for anyone who couldn’t make it to the end.



Square Rooter who had disappeared to Chiangmai after helping to found this hash, made a guest appearance on this occasion. Recognizing that he was less than welcome, he set off at the earliest opportunity pursued by Nam Ron, his dog Bush Wacker and Doesn’t Matterhorn. Finding the company uncongenial, the latter dropped back on the pretext of holding the barbed wire open for the following masses. However anyone after Swiss Roll had to fend for themselves. MANipulator knew better than to chase after such men. The exertion could spoil one’s makeup.



The trail passed through several orchards each divided by a series of barbed wire fences. Then it climbed steeply through a dense teak forest to a chedi at the top of a hill. Virgins Ian and Kelly foolishly followed Rodger and Ann little realizing that they hadn’t been around long enough to get hash names. Rolling, Stoned, Well Oiled and Hand Cock gave them space to avoid any debris falling their way.



At the half-way mark Joy Stick guarded water and melon but the promised car never appeared. After hopeful procrastination, Wild Woman, Oiled Well, Shocking, Pat on the Back with the inseparable Super Glue finally gave up and continued to trek. This led down to the Huay Sak reservoir where one had to crawl under a bamboo gate and slide along barbed wire fence to avoid tumbling down a precipitous cliff.



Substituting for the absent Hash Cash, Shocking wrote down the names of all who paid dues. All these showed up at the end of the day. Any cheapskates who went missing were left to pay for their sins.



After toasting the usual hares, virgins etc G.M. Shocking announced that henceforth until the anniversary in November the hash would begin at 4 p.m. The only exception to this rule would be the two Oileds who should anticipate a 3:30 departure. Flaps followed up with some comments on haberdashery. He began by warning that Virgin Ian’s pants which stretch below the knee could constrict movement. Square Rooter’s shorts which reveal a lot of mid-thigh is a commendable but unsuccessful effort to distract attention from his face. All might admire Wirgin Bluce’s sartorial splendor, ripped as it is with multiple threads hanging down like chads to knees.



The beer exhausted and darkness falling, the group disbanded to reassemble at the Jam Pi restaurant near the new airport for the On! On! On!

Hash House Harriers

The Chiangrai “Start slowly and taper off “ Hash
Founded 15 November 2003





Report of Run #54: Saturday, April 12, 2008



Hare: Paddy Boy assisted by Godzilla



Location: Paddy Boy farm behind Mae Fah Luang University





Altogether 24 people showed up for our Songkran run. This exceeded expectations. Fifteen were guys, including one Thai, Pat on the Back’s nephew Bill. Only eight women showed up and one child, Superglue.



The Oileds set a new record for punctuality. This time they didn’t appear at all. Also missing was MANipulator who still mourns the loss of Barefoot Beer Lao Bob. The absence of Boy Magnet was likewise keenly felt by the male contingent of our hash.



Wild Woman made her arrival noted by greeting one and all with some water down the back and Songkran blessings for the Thai new year.



The two hares were the last to show up. They appeared suddenly panting and dripping sweat. Apparently they had just arrived in Chiangrai three hours before and had immediately set out to lay the trail. Godzilla appeared particularly haggard. He used to be known as Stiffy before marriage and fatherhood overtook him.



Nam Ron, Do It Better, Belgian Organ, Ian Swan and Brussels Sprouts took off in the front only to be frustrated by the first back check which liberally interpreted the rules for trail resumption. With the help of some villagers the last became first as Pat on the Back, Nut, Rolling, Stoned, Super-glue, and Noi found the way forward and briefly led the pack.



The trail led through vast plantations of rubber trees each separated by barbed wire fences. Each required its own strategy slipping under, stepping over or sliding through the different barbed strands. To the astonishment of all, our fearless leader Shocking demonstrated the agility of a calypso dancer squeezing beneath wire.



The irrigation canals along the rice fields presented a different kind of challenge. Do It Yourself, Stuart and Pickled Prik hung back to encourage the stragglers along but being off paper the latter could find no way to cross the canal. Hand Cock, Rudy, his consort Mam, Doesn’t Matter Horn and Swiss Roll determined to go through the fields directly to them while Wirgin Bluce got distracted by Wild Woman who had found paper leading off in a different direction. The bamboo poles she placed across the ditch were strong enough to support her and Bill but they completely collapsed when your correspondent tried to follow.



Meanwhile among the Front Running Bastards, Bushwacker faithfully following his master Nam Ron, excited a herd of cattle to stampede. She was not so bold with a set of buffalo which the FRBs had to pass in the final stretch.



Sasha, Paddy Boy’s daughter greeted these FRBs with a water gun upon their return. By the time the last stragglers arrived a half hour later her hospitality was exhausted. Not so her mother Awe who welcomed us with hot dogs and fruit. Meanwhile Godzilla’s better half Maem was completely preoccupied with their 5 month-old Amy whose determination to drink shows a great hasher in the making.



At the circle afterwards the GM Shocking explained that we have free S2ATO t-shirts for anyone who had done six runs since the 4th Anniversary Hash in November. These included Pat on the Back, Super-glue, Nam Ron, Hand Cock and Wirgin Bluce. Pickled Prik, Ian Swan and his concert Noi were so taken by the beauty of the shirt that they insisted upon getting one without first submitting to six runs. For this pleasure they paid 200 Baht per shirt. The GM Shocking then gave a shirt to the two hares Paddy Boy and Godzilla as a personal gift in appreciation of their hospitality. These two do not live in Chiangrai and are lucky to attend two of our hashes per year. In order to preserve the uniqueness of this shirt, all had to promise not to resell it on Ebay.



One couple having completed three runs, cried out for a hash name. In appreciation of his nation’s musical tradition, Roger shall be known henceforth as “Belgian Organ.” His most appreciative wife, Ann thus acquired the name “Wants More.”



Paddy Boy’s father Limbo did not go on the run. He claimed he had done 500 runs over the years but now he is conserving his strength to attend church and repent for past indulgences.

Hash 2008-05-17 16.00

Next hash will be outside Ban Huay Sak.

From Big C go south, turn left towards Toeng (road 1020).

After 12 km you come to Huay Sak, pass the traffic light (probably not
working) and after 300 m you have a temple on your right side. Turn
right after the temple (HHH-sign).

After 2.5 km you come to a T-junction, turn left (HHH-sign) and go on
for another 2.5 km.

Park on left side on the road (HHH-sign).

From Big C it will take around 30 minutes.

We will start 16.00 so please be there in good time!

Everyone welcome!

Do It Yourself
(Hash Cash)

Report of Run #55: Saturday, May 17, 2008



Hares: Hash Cash Do It Yourself assisted by Do It Better



Location: On road circling the Huai Sak reservoir at the Do It farm



Twenty people showed up for the 55th run evenly split between men and women. As usual all the men but only one of the women was farang.



Just before the run began, rain came down in a deluge. Hash Beer Hand Cock, Smoked Weiner, Polly Molly immediately sought refuge with Reverse Thruster in his car. They then headed off to the Do It farm where they promptly got stuck in the mud.



Meanwhile a brigade of umbrellas and raincoats set off in the direction that Do It Yourself promised one would find paper. Unfortunately all of the powder and much of the paper had disappeared in the rain. That hardly discouraged Front Running Bastards (FRBs) Nam Ron and Able Semen as they had Bushwacker to assist them. She picked up the hare’s scent and unfailingly guided the FRBs through the checks which had dissolved in the rain. Hence the FRBs arrived at the trail’s end in record time but did nothing to assist the progress of those behind them.



Second in were Stoned, Rolling and Virgin Christine. These three had previously been walking with G.M. Shocking and Wirgin Bluce until they realized that no one had seen paper for several minutes. The latter two retraced their steps where they found a washed out false trail sign. Meanwhile the ever helpful virgin ran forward and stumbled upon paper. Rolling and Stoned joined her and thus circumvented two thirds of the trail leaving the G.M. and Hash Scribe to worry whether we would ever see these three in this life again.



Cutting across fields in pursuit of the echoing On! Ons! Shocking and Wirgin Bluce managed to rejoin the main body of hashers. These were entirely female plus Superglue who as usual closely followed his mother, Pat on the Back. Thanks to the constant chatter it was not difficult to recognize Wild Woman who was accompanied by her niece Deuan and virgins Bee and Noi Na. Boy Magnet however was more difficult to identify in the absence of the usual male sniffers.



When the rain stopped Reverse Thruster, Polly Molly, Smoked Weiner and Hand Cock dared to get out of the car and follow paper backwards from the Do It farmhouse. They ignored the FRBs but when they came upon Stoned, Rolling and Christine they turned back towards the farm house on the assumption that the others could not be far behind. Thus nine of the twenty hashers arrived prematurely at the end and this accounts for the severely depleted beer stocks when the others arrived.



The first order of business upon assembly at the farm house was extricating Reverse Thruster’s vehicle from the mud. That done he, Polly Molly and Smoked Weiner took off before the Hash Cash had time to collect.



The second order of business was flogging t-shirts. The G.M. conscripted his daughter Boy Magnet to model it and succeeded in enticing Virgin Christine to buy one. Conveniently there was no mirror available. Christine will not discover until she reaches home that the t-shirt looks a lot better on the nubile Boy Magnet.



The third order of business was honouring Ian Swan with a hash name. In recognition of his passion for sailing, he shall be known henceforth as Able Semen.



The final order of business was recognizing Virgin Noi Na who hid previously while Virgins Christine and Bee were subjected to the down down. Noi Na excused herself saying she was talking to her husband in England . Then our fearless and most popular G.M., a Liverpool taxi driver confiscated the phone and told the distant husband exactly where he could get off.



Next month’s scheduled hares are Pat on the Back and MANipulator. However in the absence of the usual man to manipulate (Barefoot Beer Lao Bob), there is no certainty about the outcome. The G.M. will investigate.
