Hash Trash 1820

The Hash was hosted by AC/DC and Dawn Raid at the Tokelau compound. It had been a rainy last few hours, and was still drizzling as we arrived. The run had been set in reverse from last time, which although it meant we knew where to go, we first had to slog down the long road to the bridge. To put this in perspective – have you ever felt the blast of a convection oven? The road was baked during the day and had now been soused with lots of water, causing some serious evaporation. The fug of moisture that enveloped us was as unpleasant as Murdoch’s armpits. Only a small group took the lead, but by trying to turn into the woods too early they actually allowed the slow pokes to catch up. And it was last placed Poumuli who found the right trail and blazed the way on home. In Godfather’s absence there were no nuts at the beginning, but POD showed up with a few bags to remedy the situation.

POD was GM again, no takers being found for her social experiment with sharing out that responsibility. New to Hash were Marcus from Norway, son of Dawn Raid. When asked what other family he had in the Hash he blustered through with Uncle, Aunty and Aunty Aunty. Then there was Kieran from Oz, here with CI for 12 months. Finally Aaron from NZ of fame. They all got a down down because of small numbers in the circle.

Retreads were Dawn Raid (been over, under and beside his motorcycle, twice). Witch Doctor was appointed Shoe Inspector, and found that Aaron’s shoes were new, but did in fact belong to AC/DC, who took the award.

Celebrity Awards were numerous, all for women of the Hash, but none were present. Thus the GM nominated Prince for his girlie laugh, Jill to represent Queen Beatch, Wahoo for Sassygirl BJ and Il Capo for Slim Shady.

This Day in History Awards went to Gayboy, but in his absence Cunning Linguist took the first (1781 – William Herschel discovers Uranus. Poumuli claimed he was Dutch), Nom Nom and Snake (1877 – First ever official cricket test match is played: Australia vs England at the MCG Stadium, in Melbourne, Australia) and Snake (Mass of St Gregory).

On the run there had been multiple reports of Crime being a gentleman – most uncommon. He was joined by Nom Nom and Aaron who had been squeamish about getting their shoes wet in the river.
Turning to the theme of the run – island style – the GM gave an On The Ball Award to co-host Dawn Raid for failing to heed this. He was joined by Prince, who upon arrival was, damned I have nothing, went to the car and comes back like an island queen.

Opening up, AC/DC nominated Snake who instead of running had said bugger it lets drink instead, which resulted in a double. AC/DC also nominated Lewinsky for his sexy over-dressing, not knowing that Lewinsky is on the wagon, thus whipping boy Poumuli had to take it.

Il Capo complained that on the run she had been the only female, and the front runners had abandoned her. This meant an Ungentlemanly Award to Mr Whippy who normally waits, Kieran for being too fast, and Wahoo as the third female on the run.

AC/DC’s uncles were introduced to the circle and given a down-down each. Cunning Linguist then accused Poumuli of poor research, as he had missed an article on Tokelau, written by, er, Cunning Linguist. Both of them took this award.

There was a brief birthday award for Milu, cousin of AC/DC, before Witch Doctor nominated Marcus for being so so worried about getting sunburn, then getting it anyway. He was joined by Dawn Raid and uncle Poumuli, who still gets burned after 9 years.

AC/DC nominate Aaron for being a stand up guy, who tried coconut climbing on his first visit, and also Marcus for honouring him with attending Hash. Poumuli nominated Lewinsky for being the only one who laughed at the suggested name for the GM’s car – the Podule, forgetting about the whipping boy arrangement.

The Hare and Hosts were saluted before we ate lots of island food, as well as Milu’s birthday cake.
Watch the blog for next week’s run.

Hash Run 1820

Greetings Hashers
Monday's Hash will be hosted by AC/DC in the Tokelau compound, same as a few weeks ago.

Take the airport road from town, and turn left at the lights opposite AST Industries. This is the road to Chanel College. Its quite a long way to drive, over some ridges and fords. The last ford is quite a substantial dip in the road. When you get to the top after that ford, there is a green sign on the right for some sort of B&B or accommodation. Take that right turn, a few hundred metres, you will cross a small white bridge and the compound is just on the left, with the word Tokelau spelled out in white painted stones.

The theme is island style!

Run starts at 1800 hours or 6 PM. Bring your Hash Cash of 20 tala and enjoy the afternoon.

Hash Trash 1819

The Hash was hosted by the Lewinsky tribe at their seaside cyclone bait reserve in Taumeasina. The day had been hot, but the wind was blowing briskly by the water, and brisk blows were of course a Lewinsky specialty. But as soon as we ran out the gate, that blessed wind was blocked by houses and trees. We went out on the road east, and turned off where it runs up to Fagalii and NUS. Right so – we went all the way up to NUS past the cemetery and then down the Faatola Road to the 4 corners by the UN building. Then it was on home past Apia Park. Those who stayed on that side of the road had an uneventful return. Godfather, who did not, was mauled in the arse by a dog, right on his tattoo. So it was blissful to not only have the cold nuts to drink, but the ice to apply to said dog bite.

Hot Nuts stepped in as GM this week, and concluded that there were no newbies to Hash. There were a plethora of retreads though. These were: Prince, Gianluca, Eveready, Karaoke, Crash Bandicoot, Cougar and Alex.

This day in history awards went to: Sassygirl BJ (363 – Roman Emperor Julian moves from Antioch with an army of 90,000 to attack the Sassanian Empire, in a campaign which would bring about his own death – don’t mess with the Sassies!), Ring Ring (1876 – Alexander Graham Bell is granted a patent for an invention he calls the "telephone") and Gayboy (International Women’s Day).
Celebrity Awards went to ProBoner (huge photo in the Observer) and StrapOn for BB (pictured as part of the Forum Election Observer Group).

The GM then did something terrible and thanked Poumuli for his dedication to unearthing celebrities and historical nuggets with a down-down.

Opening up for nominations, Sassy congratulated ProBoner for taking part in the 8-week challenge, but noted that her brother had been completely unsupportive – Bastard Award to Lewinsky. POD also called for the Hash to note the momentous occasion of having the first female Deputy Leader of the ruling party and nominated Fiame’s closest living relative – Speedhumper.

Sassy noted that this was the first time two hashers sweated on the walk – Jill and Sunny Side Up, who were joined by one who didn’t sweat – Karaoke.

Latecummers Spellcheck and Witch Doctor were rewarded. POD had a nomination for the Unsupportive Male of the Month. Karaoke had been doing a weight loss programme and was looking great at a function; everyone said so, except Eveready who claimed it was just the dress. After an attempted right of reply, more like a dig the grave deeper, Eveready took the award.

Poumuli nominated Prince for answering to the name “Babe” when uttered by Lewinsky, while StrapOn nominated Gayboy for always leaving Hash early to avoid his down-downs and leaving them to him. Gayboy countered by also nominating Lewinsky for not trusting him with the BBQ, but the circle agreed that Gayboy was too fondly fondling the sausages.

Poumuli nominated Wahoo for her birthday. Sassy gave an Undue Athleticism Award to Kat. Slim Shady then nominated Godfather for the Inappropriate Contribution Award, as he had bought some stuff for Titty Galore that clearly had some personal benefits involved. Godfather also admitted that he was in fact wearing Titty G’s running shorts by mistake, which may have explained why his arse got mauled.

Poumuli nominated Lewinsky for doing a short-cut, which he countered by saying that Gayboy had threatened to beat him up. While this was not accepted, the question as to whether Gayboy had been running behind him brought both of them the Short Cutting Bastards Award.

Gayboy had been watching the 7’s in Vegas and wanted to congratulate Fiji for their great performance by nominating Slim Shady and Lewinsky, but for some reason this went to Alex instead.

Sassy again nominated Mr Whippy for the Gentleman Award for checking that all the female runners were doing alright. This was quickly repeated by Strap On who thought Mr Whippy must be sad that Peyton Manning was retiring (he named his son after him).

The Hare and the Hosts, Lewinsky, POD and Crime were saluted before we threw down some bangers and mash.
