Last night’s run was co-hosted by Underrated, Xrated and the departing HOPPY who shouted the potent keg.
The trot set off from Lotopa, with Poumuli, as always, leading the pack astray until SassygirlBJ found the trail heading towards the new Lotopa Ford (it wasn’t a RHD Ford). Trail ran along the river banks, nicely dotted with used diapers and rusty cans of all shapes and sizes. Poor Delicious almost lost her virginity along the same trail when a tree branch refused to let her go. Snake came to her rescue… and all this before the nectar of the Gods….lol.
Trail meandered along the dry river bed and ended up someone’s taro patch and onto the tar-sealed road at Vailoa. From there the pack headed towards the golf-course and goodness knows where-else as the walkers, including the scribe went awol as usual and took the short-cuts home. Kiwi, the hare was noticeably unimpressed when he reached base and found half the hashers already relaxing in armchairs smoking and sucking on nuts….not as sweet as Godfather’s Nuts tho!
GM called the noisy bunch for the ONONs.
Welcome to the many new boots – Medical Students. Some very fit and good looking runners in this bunch..lol.. there was even a sensitive one who liked to go for long romantic walks on the beach and watch the sunset…. Delicious offered to take this new hasher for a walk any time. Go Delicious!!!
There were only a handful of retreads to penalize and they promptly fronted up, most likely fearing a double down down of the super charged nectar.
Samoa may not have won any gold medals at the Olympics, but according to the GM, Samoa definitely got Gold Medals during the HMAS Manoora’s recent visit to Apia… the die hard, party hard girls, led by Delicious and Kuini ensured the ships company was well entertained whilst in town. Malo Party Girls. It was also whispered to the Scribe that a search party was sent out one of the nights to look for Delicious who went awol for a while…..she was just checking out the moon beams on the stilled waters of Apia…lol.
A visiting blondish Cinderella with defined biceps and the mouthy one from Wales were pulled up for wearing new boots and made to drink out of their supposedly new shoes. Thank goodness they were bloody good sports as the Scribe’s bionic eyes did not agree with the sniffer (ACDC)’s assessment, but what the heck… good for a laugh!!! Shafter encouraged them to drink more Vailima for medicinal purposes should any untoward signs appear from this exercise.
Snake was dobbed in for accusing one of the hash-men for not damn well answering his phone, when it was discovered that he had been ringing Fang (his missus) all the time. One would say this is signs of old age.
The following received their shirts – Hoppy, his
Lauren, with the Technicolor shorts was penalized for washing her face and hands with the beer….serious misdemeanor here. GM and Karaeoke were dobbed in by Tony Blair for both forgetting their own wedding anniversary despite having invited TB and Selena two weeks before. Karaeoke and Delicious (whipping girl for GM) took the penalty. At this stage of the proceedings, Delicious was starting to speak several languages all at the same time…what a talented mere!!
SassygirlBJ dobbed in Under-rated for burning her after helping to cook the BBQ for him. Hobby, being the good sport that he is helped his co-host by keeping him company with an additional down down. In the meantime, Kiwi tried to incriminate Shafter, who had rcvd his third down-down and was having problems standing upright, by slipping him a sausage to eat in the circle. Shafter turned the table on Kiwi instead, after protesting that Karaeoke was trying to eat his sausage!!!
The GM called all to sing the hash national anthem in honor of our departing mate Hoppy plus threatened to give him a double down down if he did not promise to come back to Samoa.
The motley lot was later on treated to an excellent spread of chicken and fish curry with the accompaniments plus a full on BBQ. Ummm ummm very very nice spread Xrated.
If you can remember any other dirt that you want included in the hash trash, drop me a note or just leave a comment on the blog, or better still, you can write the next hash trash.. ONON!!!
The Grandmaster, Eveready.

There was quite some excitement as the local chapter of hashers assembled at the Maliu Mai Restaurant and Bar at Fugalei, in anticipation of some fresh blood straight off the HMAS Manoora. Finally, Jock pulled up with a ute-full of fresh blood alright, just the right sex for the meres to ogle. Some of the old hashmen whined about the lack of the female sailors in the group. Of course they brightened up when some medical students made their appearance. Pathetic could be the appropriate term here…LOL!!!
The enthusiastic trot took the runners through the swampy reclaimed area of Taufusi. Scribe, believes this is one of Snake's old stomping grounds! The group ended at the lights at AST and proceeded up the Moamoa road until the climb up to the Prayer House on Mt. Vaea. The walkers took the gentle climb whilst the fit lot were chased by the visiting sailors up the mountain. Finally as dusk fell the group started arriving back at base thirsty, sweaty and a bit smelly for their efforts.
The visitors were well taken care of, fed and consumed plenty of Vailima, drunk from the shells of Godfather's sweetest nuts in the whole of Samoa, an experience noted by the visitors as a memorable experience. Many of the sailors raved on about the friendliness of Samoa etc., and are now keen to come back again, very soon. They got many tips from the locals on etiquette, picking up sheilas from the bars… no make that, "what to look for" and "how not to get your constitution re-arranged by an irate samoan boyfriend" and how to spot the real girls from the wannabes….lol
The GM extended a warm armed force welcome to the group…was expecting all the guys to jump to attention there, but not so. Whilst the GM tried to get proceedings under way, so many of the older hash men were restless, rowdy and couldn't quite get their enthusiasm toned down as they all strutted like peacocks trying to help the GM…..phew!!!
The new boots saw some 14 or so sailors and others introduce themselves. Snake proceeded to shake hands with the former group and then stepped back in to the circle leaving the new meres wondering what was wrong with them….thanks to Lezzie who jumped in and gave each new mere a peck on the cheek with promises for more if….lol
Delicious was well dressed in Puletasi and brand spanking new boots. Delicious and a couple of the Manoora boys were made to drink out of their new boots. There were quite a few retreads, the scribe lost count.
SassygirlBJ was pulled up for her recent trip down under where she was nicknamed Paris Hilton…according to the GM, Paris is known only for being dumb blond, and her sexual escapades…. What has Sassy been up to, to earn the name. She was also given a down down for being ieresponsible and for pushing for a change of date for hash.
GM noted that Fang recently celebrated her ? birthday. Since meeting Fang some 10 or so years ago, she looked the same, was the same size and still the same age….according to the GM. Here is one mere who hasn't aged.
Kuini was asked to demonstrate her moves and the "BOD" for the visitors, to which she enthusiastically did as always.
The keg was afloat in no time with such a big turnout of thirsty and excited hashers that the Maliu Mai Restaurant folks were left wondering how their luck had turned as far as their sales was concerned. Thanks to Ring Ring for providing the venue and to Kiwi for settting the run.
At the conclusion of the awards, all the guests were invited to sample the local fare enthusiastically produced by the local hashers. Thanks everyone for making our guests feel right at home. No doubt they made the most of their stay and contributed to the vailima sales - let alone Lewinsky's Bar…..Malo Lewinsky!!!!
Next week's run will be from Underrated & Xrated's Home - with their co-Host Hoppy who has offered to shout the keg…. Well done Hoppy!!!
See you all there!!!
Late notes: Check-out the personal thank you message from the Commander of the HMAS Manoora in our Hash Guestbook. Also, some pictures of this Hash can be found in the Hash Photo Albums.

o UPDATE 14 AUG 08 (Eveready) - This is a Bring Your Own Food (BYO Food) Hash. And yes, as always, each Hasher must pay the standard Hash fee $15.
SPECIAL NOTICE from the GM Eveready - The venue has changed. We'll be running on TUESDAY at the Maliu Mai Restaurant and Bar in Fugalei (see attached map). A wild crew from an Australian Navy vessel will be joining us for an exciting run - expect many down-downs and lots of testosterone! Hash Mares don't miss this one. Hashmen, practice your down-downs. On-On.
Fathers Day run @ Matareva
Hashers were lucky this weekend to receive good weather for their Father Day run at Matareva. Hash started out with a good turn out considering it was a public holiday.
Snake and Fang managed to find the hash bunch a fale right in the middle of the beach which was excellent!
Snake set off early to set one of his famous runs which included everything from mud, to the jungle, and water..lots of it too..
From the stories and complaints from those that did the run, it sounded like a great one. Malo Snake...Kiwi got back early with his son from the run and got the BBQ going. Poumuli brought some of his famous spare ribs with that killer sauce (got to get him pissed to hand over the recipe) The GM kept his promise and brought that tasty turkey..boy was it good. Selena brought her famous Bolivian Steak..and the other hashers all threw in some form of chow for all to enjoy.
The hashers were starting to get a little nervous and started getting the shakes when Lewinsky turned up 2 hours late with the Keg.2 hours was obviously too long a break from the nectar of life for the Apia Hash...so to help with this, Pussy Snapper was sent up a coconut tree to collect a few nuts (hero award if you ask me) Also, an odd view, to see a white fella up in the coconut tree collecting nuts..
When Lewinsky turned up, it didn’t take long for the hash team to get the keg setup and start pouring what must have been one of the better kegs that hash has had!
Awards were thrown left right and center. They came in from all over the place, and every hasher that was present received a down down..some had a few more than they could handle as Lewinsky tried to revive an already dead coconut tree with whatever he had for lunch..Tony Blair was hit up for an early down down for not bringing the hash mugs (only 2 weeks into the job and he forgot-terrible) Lewinsky copped a down down for being 2 hours late with the keg. Snake had his share of down downs for not helping certain Hash Meres in distress, as did Pussy Snapper. The med students received a few down downs for their misdemeanors during the run and during the
Hash went well on into the evening at Matareva, and then migrated to Headquarters where the real alcoholics continued to party on into the wee hours of the morning.
Big thanks again to all the Hashers that turned up for the run at Matareva. Was a great day with some sun, sea, sand, lots of mud and that nectar of life stuff.. Hope you all had a great Fathers Day and see you all at next weeks run at Taumeasina. Remember, next weeks run is on Tuesday to accommodate the Australian Navy Crew.
FYI: For those having a fit right now, relax. The BBQ is water-blasted then super-heated before each use.

This week's Fathers Day Run will be at Matareva Beach on the South Coast of Upolu. This should be an interesting run as there aren't too many roads, but lots of bush..err, for all those dodgy hasher's who like the jungle runs.
This is going to be a BYO Drinks and Food. So basically bring your Booze of your choice, and something to throw on the BBQ.
Directions: Go over the Cross Island Road and turn right when you reach Siumu, drive for about 20 - 30 mins (depending on how fast/slow you drive) and when you reach a Village called Matautu, Look out on the left hand side for the sign to Matareva Beach. Pay your $15 / $20 tala (depending on vehicle- best if you all car pool) and drive down to the beach. Map is also below...Don't forget your swimmers and see you all there!
REMEMBER, RUN STARTS AT 2PM
For those beer drinkers, Lewinsky is bringing a Keg. Pay him $15 (separate to hash cash) and you can drink from his keg instead.
