Third Anniversary Run

Stiffy and Mam Wedding

Location: Naung Luang in Tha Sai, 2 kilometers south of the windmill off highway 1020 near the east bank of the Mae Laow River

Hares: G.M. Wirgin Bluce

Hash Cash Hand Cock

The Chiangrai S2ATO hash postponed its third anniversary run one week in order to coordinate with the Stiffy and Mam wedding on that same day. As a result attendance exceeded 50 thanks to Stiffy who mobilized friends in Japan, Bangkok and Chiangmai to spend the weekend in Chiangrai. Eleven came from the local kennel.

The run was an A to B beginning at an abandoned resort and ending at a beautiful pavilion surrounded by a lake. The trail had previously been used for a special charity run on October 31, 2006 for hashers going on a post lube tour of Laos. You can read about that experience on our website at www.kenoji.com/hash. Fortunately none of the local hashers appeared at the charity event and so we used the same site a second time.

The trail never touched tarmac. For the most part it followed shaded footpaths through forests and along freshly-harvested rice fields. There were multiple options leading off from most checks. False trails jumbled up the leadership and kept the walkers and runners tightly packed. The female runners from Japan proved to be a sturdier group than the local breed. Half way through the run, the FRBs began working as a team and they began to pull away from the walkers. Whereas the post lube runners took 1 hour 15 minutes to complete the course, the 3d anniversary group finished up in 45 minutes. First and third in were our own Nam Raun and Paddy Boy but only because a German guy insisted on following the purple paper laid for the post lube. This took him on a detour around the lake which was almost a kilometer long. Walkers arrived a half hour later. Young Keith and spouse, new members of our S2ATO set a new record for the slowest hashers. They appeared an hour and half after the walkers, too late for either beer or snacks. He turned up at the start a few minutes after the sweep had left and found his own way around the course.

The run had begun at noon, in order to dove tail into the wedding scheduled for 5 pm. Anticipating hungry runners, the hares laid on plentiful snacks at the end. There were also traditional lanna jackets (mau haum) for all to take home as souvenirs. Down downs mainly held victims responsible for whatever may have befallen them. Bimboo was targeted repeatedly. He is the guy who introduced Stiffy to Mam whose wedding occasioned this weekend. Also honoured were the newly elected Mismanagement Committee including:

Nam Raun G.M.

Brain Health Religious Advisor

Hand Cock and Shocking Hash Cash

Well Oiled Hash Beer

Wirgin Bluce Hash Sec

The wedding weekend began at 7 pm on Friday night where 27 hashers gathered at the Dusit Island hotel for a run through the town. The trail, laid by Ajarn Ki Mau, led up a dark staircase to a temple high above the town where the gang was serenaded by howling dogs. Thereafter they lost sight of paper but nonetheless found their way through the market to two bars before winding up at the Chai Nam restaurant on the south bank of the Kok River. Although many fell by the wayside, somehow the total number kept growing so that by the time they reached the end point there were no less than 40. The groom and his partners were then roundly denounced in a series of down downs in the parking lot before retreating to a magnificent buffet at the river’s edge.

The wedding itself began early the next morning at the Dusit Island with a Buddhist ceremony. This concluded just in time for the hashers to head out to the anniversary run. The second half resumed with a Christian ceremony in the Dusit’s garden followed by a reception around the swimming pool. Speeches were conveniently short and few. The ladies dressed in their finery but most men hid their attire under the mau haum so recently acquired.

Sunday afternoon began with an A to B run ending at Paddy Boy’s farm behind the university. The groom began as a live hare but somehow transformed into a sweep! Go figure. Over 200 people appeared including local villagers. There was an excellent live band and the party went far into the night. Thanks to Stiffy’s generosity there was no shortage of food and drink. Although transportation was available, eight people missed their onward flights that night. The party went on into the early hours of the morning. Many folks commented that the weekend provided the intimacy which was so totally missing at the recent Interhash.

Hi all

Our next HHH run will be on Saturday Dec. 16 starting at the home of

Well Oiled and Oiled Well. This will be an A to B. We will travel to A and

back to the house from B by an Edan (locally made farm truck) so please all

come to Oiled's by 3:30 pm because we will need time to go out to the

starting point.

To get to the Oiled's drive north along the Asian Highway (towards Mae

Sai) and turn left at the first traffic lights after the bridge. Travel

along that road about 3 km until you reach a t-junction (HHH sign) and then

turn right towards Huai Mae Sai waterfalls. Travel about 7 km until you

reach another t-junction (HHH sign) where you turn right again. Less than

100 meters along that road you will come to a cement paved road called Soi 5

(HHH sign) with a sign saying "Baan Du." Enter that soi and go along about 1

km. The cement paving ends at the entry way to a temple at the top of the

hill. Turn left up the hill (HHH sign) and enter the first (and only)

driveway on your right. It will take about 35 minutes to drive there from

the Big C.

The Oileds are organizing a dinner and Christmas party so to help plan

the food would you please indicate to George (at geodaher@gmail.com or

telephone 0894332134) whether or not you are coming by Dec 7. Please see

details of the gift exchange below.

On! On!

Report of Run #40: Saturday, February 17, 2007

Location: Baan Suksaserm, Mae Yaow off the road to Huai Mae Sai Waterfalls

Hares: Helping Hand assisted by Hand Cock

Twenty-five people showed up for our February run. Demographically it was very different from the usual crowd. This time we had ten women for fifteen men. The women were equally divided between locals and expatriates. There was only one child however. This was Heineken’s Piss’s son, Belgian Waffle who despite his Hash name, ably represented the Thai male gender.

Veteran hashers will remember the Baan Suksa Serm area as the site of the overnight hash #20 on June 20, 2005. On that occasion hashers found the trail too short. The FRB’s ran the trail two times to get sufficient exercise then did a third time in search of a late hasher, Jaylon, who had phoned to say she was lost. They found her back on the trail doing head stands. Thus she acquired the name “Head First.”

This time the hare, Helping Hand determined that she would respond amply to the deficiencies of Hand Cock’s efforts the month before. Whereas some complained about simplicity, this time it would be complex. Others said the trail was too short, she would not make the same mistake. Still others thought it was too flat, so she chose an area which was anything but flat.

In the course of eight visits to the area, Helping Hand thought she had found the perfect route. She then made it more complex by her creative way of laying the trail. Without a word to anyone, she decided that all trail intersections would automatically be checks. Moreover her frugal Canadian nature inclined her to minimize the use of paper. This added a touch of suspense to the day as much of the time no one knew if we were on trail or not. However she did draw powder lines across false trails but in the absence of paper leading up to them, one could be forgiven for thinking that the real trail led somewhere beyond the false trail. Thus Stung ran through two false trail marks and stumbled upon the real trail. This put her far ahead of the usual two FRB’s, GM Nam Raun and Barefoot Bob. However she and the others then ran straight up a steep hill only to discover yet another false trail at the top. That gave the GM an opportunity to demonstrate how to ski down a hill in a toilet-squat stance. Others were more cautious. Meanwhile the rest of the hashers caught up with the FRB’s. The layout was so complex and diverse that the gang regrouped repeatedly and virtually everyone found themselves at the lead however briefly. Most people took about 90 minutes to complete the circuit and no once complained about it being too short. The scenery was spectacular.

With his habitual attention to detail, the Hash Beer forswore the adjacent field and parked his car on the village road. Hence the circle formed around the beer across the village road. That added to the fun as the GM’s dog, Bushwacked drove cattle off their homeward route into the woods. Passing motorcyclists were likewise amused to drive through the circle center. No doubt the village will remember our visit next time we want to use this area again.

There were seven virgins to celebrate on this occasion. One was a visiting friend of the hares. Two were periodic residents of the Chiangrai who claim to have hashed elsewhere. Four were teachers at the local Montessori school. Three of the latter were responsible for dramatically increasing the representation of expatriate females.

Heineken Piss, Belgian Waffle, Jolly Molly, Stung and Bushwacked were honored with hash names on this occasion. We note in passing that Pile’s companion Gem has mysteriously acquired a new hash name, Flower Power. This goes with her new hat which is aptly decorated.

directions to the hash on st patricks day march 17th

Go north out of downtown Chiang Rai on the highway to Mae Sai.

About 900 meters north of the airport road, you will see the Bandu market on your left and the pedestrian bridge over the highway. About 200 meters beyond the bridge/market, turn left toward the Pong Pra Baht Waterfall.

You will follow the road to the waterfall almost to its end. Not far past the 7 km marker (somewhat obscured on the right side of the road), the road makes a 90º sweeping turn to the left. Shortly after that turn you will pass Huai Luang Reservoir on your left.

About 200 meters past the reservoir, just as the road starts to make its short ascent to the waterfall parking area at the end of the road, turn left on Soi 6 (there will be an HHH sign).

Soi 6 soon changes from cement to a smooth dirt surface. Follow Soi 6 for about 2.95 km until you see the HHH sign, where you can park along the side of the road.

Take care,

Steve

To all the HHH Songkran hikers ... thank you for a warm welcome on my first hike yesterday. The hike was in beautiful countryside (even managed a peek at the"Great Wall of China") and not too arduous for those who managed to keep on the trail. What a nice group of people, delicious food and enjoyable conversation.

Special thanks to Soap for posting announcement on CR forum.

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.

The May hash is scheduled for Saturday May 20 beginning at 4 p.m.

It will follow shaded trails on and around Doi Khao Kwai, the

hill 4km south of town. Gourmet snacks will await participants. To give us

some idea of how much food to prepare, please call Win (Smoked Wiener) at

01-883-9475. Swimmers may wish to bring optional swimwear. Soap and

shampoo will be provided for post-hash decontamination.

Someone interested?

Hi all

Yes! There will be a hash this Saturday, May 26. Begins at 4 pm.

Location south of Huai Sak close to the mountain which sprouts up

behind the

reservoir. Leaving the Big C travel south on the Asia Highway and then

turn

east on the Thoeng Road (Highway 1020). Go through the Huai Sak traffic

lights, over the little bridge, past the 15 km stone and then turn

right at

the first soi past the temple (HHH sign). Then go straight out that

road.

You will come to a T-junction where you will turn left (HHH sign) and

immediately be confronted with a large puddle of water. It is not deep

and

it has a cement base. My 20 year-old Honda Civic can cross it with no

problem. People on motorcycles might like to take the small trail

leading

around the puddle on the left. Follow the road until reach a t-junction

where other cars will be parked. From highway to parking is 7 km. Plan

on 30

minutes drive from the Big C.

On! On!

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.
