The Chiangrai “Start slowly and taper off “ Hash

S2ATO the Family Friendly Hash

Founded 15 November 2003

Report of HHH Run# 95: Saturday, September 18, 2011

Location: At the foot of Doi Tung off rural route 1149

Hare: Nam Ron, Big Bic and Yes She Will

Twenty-nine intrepid hashers gathered in the backs of pick up trucks for the short ride from the Pang Sarapee Green Resort to the foot of Doi Tung. No one imagined that the merciful gods which had held back the threatening skies all day would allow the rains to affect the virtuous family-friendly hash. However they must have detected some sinners amongst the blessed group for the heavens did indeed open up and the rains did fall torrentially upon both the good and evil in equal measure. Naturally one immediately wonders who among this otherwise fine group could have brought upon it such a punishment which was as brutal as it was unusual. Could it have been one of the seven visiting hashers from Chiangmai like Sleep On It, Proping Ninja or Sleep On It? Or maybe the sinner is Humper Dick, Hollow Legs or Gets Wet who also come from Chiangmai. Skid Marks likewise looked guilty. Thoughts also turned to the Virgin Family Reich of four freshly out from Florida.

In the deluge and resulting confusion, the hares forgot where the trail began and drove beyond the turn off. You can imagine the joy among hashers as they shivered in the rain while the hares tried to figure what to do next. Eventually we arrived at a mud sodden lane where Nam Ron declared the dreaded words, “The trial begins here!”

Hardy souls like the Chiangmai Seven, Do It Yourself, Nearly Virgin Rose, Paddy Boy and Fired Up immediately set off in defiance of the elements. More discrete individuals like the perpetual G.M. Shocking, Comes Twice and Special Needs hid in the truck cab as witnessed by your devoted scribe who also remained there to accurately record their cowardly deeds. Five minutes later the rains stopped and eventually the secreted ones risked leaving their refuge. That is when Special Needs suddenly discovered that for the first time since arriving in Thailand he is without the constant ministrations of Special Services. Totally disoriented he rashly set off in the direction of paper in desperate hopes of finding succor.

Special Needs was not the only one in need of support that day. The trial headed steeply up hill and then an equally steep gradient downwards to be repeated over three peaks and valleys. The scenery was magnificent but few hashers had the opportunity to appreciate the verdant landscape so focused were they on where their feet were slipping. Special Needs was wise enough to bring a walking stick. Fired Up had sufficient resourcefulness to grab a stick along the way. Your faithful correspondent fell on his back and nearly cracked his head open. Fortunately the land was soft.

After the first hill, Shocking persuaded himself that despite the absence of paper, the trial must lie along a road somewhere. The devoted Pat on the Back and son Super Glue fearing that they might lose their colossal companion followed in his enormous wake. Nam Ron eventually discovered them on the Super Highway headed towards Mae Sai.

For this particular event Nam Ron took it upon himself to set a number of false trials in addition to circle checks. This made it difficult for FRB’s to clearly indicate to those behind where the trial led. Consequently each group had to find its own way forward. The result was that while the FRB’s finished in 50 minutes, the last ones in (Soreasses, Marmalaid, Special Needs, Special Services) required 2 hours and 15 minutes.

The FRB’s were not complaining. The trial ended at the Big Bic compound which is one of the most beautiful spots in Chiang Rai province. Moreover there was a swimming pool and Big Bic had outfitted the French Mediterranean style house with a pool table and ping pong table for those who remained sober enough to use them.

In recognizing our seven visitors from the Chiang Mai hash, the perpetual G.M. reminded the circle that this is a family hash and anyone who doesn’t like free speech is free to bugger off. We then proceeded to toast the hares, the virgins and elect names for the newcomers as follows. Appreciating the positive “can do” posture of Preng and her special link to Big Bic alias “Will” she acquired the name “Yes She Will.” Likewise the group admired the stamina which made Jolly Molly doubly pregnant and therefore gave Christian the name “Comes twice.”

In expressing his appreciation for the trail Soreasses congratulated the hares upon creating an environment which risked terminating any unsuspecting hasher. The G.M. then turned to the circle over to our visitors from Chiang Mai who gave up when they discovered that there was no beer remaining for more “down downs.”

The fun and games continued well into the night following the On! On! On! at the Pang Sarapee Green Resort.

Chiangrai Family Friendly Hash report No 96

Founded 15th November 2003

15th October 2011

Location: Baan Fanta Luang near Wat Jom Sak 2.5 km west of the Superhighway just before Macro

Hare: Fired Up and On Fire

Despite the controversy surrounding the previous event, 23 intrepid hashers appeared one more time. The two hares, Fired Up and On Fire, ensured that no such criticism would be leveled at them by searching out a trail which was absolutely flat and without a leaf of grass which might stain a shoe. However through some oversight they failed to ensure that the day was clear of rain. Your faithful correspondent regrets to report that dirt from the mud roads did stick to his boots and this required some cleaning afterwards.

Able Semen and Doesnt Work (Crash) rushed ahead oblivious to where paper may lead. Soreasses was foolish enough to follow them. When suddenly they broke from their reverie to discover that no one had seen paper for 10 minutes, they had to back track for a half kilometer. Later back in the circle Do It Yourself complained that these three had become so self-absorbed that they neglected to kick out the checks. Among the victims were the Lost Samurai and Nok Easy who guessed wrong. Nam Ron avoided all mistakes by pretending to supervise Ranger, Buffalo Bill and No Name.

With the coming of cool weather, Scotch on the Rocks emerged from the north dragging compatriots Virgins Gale and Kelly with her. Cop Out stayed close by her side to ensure that these wild Scots did no harm.

Meanwhile a name change may be due for Johnny Walker who ended up not far behind the FRBs. Likewise the Special Needs-Special Services duo surprised everyone by mysteriously appearing early at the finish line.

Shocking became so enthralled by the trial that he walked right by the end point. Not far behind were Pat on the Back and the inevitable Super Glue who made no such mistake.

At the circle thereafter our favourite GM ever thanked the hares of this run, Fired Up and On Fire, and Nam Ron for the most memorable September hash. He managed to squeeze these details in between the offer of t-shirts and the formation of an orderly queue of eager purchasers. Scotch on the Rocks splashed this truthful reporter for setting an alarm on his beautiful new car so all could appreciate his recent affluence and aesthetics. Finally the group refused to name Nearly Virgin Neil Doesnt Workwhich would honour his early retirement as an internet blogger. Instead this democracy perversely insisted on anticipating the future by calling him Crash.

On! On!

Chiangrai family frienly HHH

8TH anniversary hash report, run no 97, 19th November 2011

Location: Wild Woman House, Santiburi Golf Course

Our latest hash starting time was set for 15.00h („winter“ schedule, haha), yet at 14.40 a line of limousines was already parked in front of our hosts’ home. No doubt a combination of their well-deserved reputation for hospitality and the refined setting both contributed to the high turnout. There was a palpable frisson of anticipation in the air.

Wirgin Bluce was kind enough to give a long and pedantic explanation of the ‘rules’ for the benefit of the virgins. Thank you, thank you. Finally the fog has lifted for many hashers.

There were indeed a number of unfamiliar faces, including some picturesque young specimens from our host country (daughters? girlfriends? so hard to tell) as well as some healthy competition for them from the Disunited States. Likewise it was good to see some old faces like Smoked Wiener who floated out of Bangkok on the floods plus Scotch on the Rocks and Sperm Bank who migrate from the north as the weather turns cold. Accompanying Sperm Bank were his missus, Missed Period and their three beautiful Powder Puffs who travelled all the way from Phaya Mengrai. Once Well Oiled and Oiled Well finally appeared, habitually twenty minutes late, everyone knew the moment to depart had arrived and, without further ado, the group headed out.

The new scribe did not wish his genuine journalistic interest to be misconstrued, so no contact was made and detailed fabrications regarding the virgins will have to wait until a later date. Nonetheless it is worth observing that Doesn't Work (alias Crash) enticed ‘Chompoo’ (this is a real name, not a hash name) to attend for the first time.

The excuse for our get-together, sorry, the Walk, did not disappoint. The landscape was charming, and thanks to crafty Wirgin Bluce’s numerous false trails we were able to admire all parts of it at least twice. The staff of the Santiburi had thoughtfully combed the path beforehand, so there was far less trash along the way than we are accustomed to, apart from the shredded paper that we ourselves deposited (and which is NOT biodegradable, so the trail is conveniently reuseable), and one eyesore of a house whose feckless inhabitants had omitted to remove the spare tyres and other detritus littering their yard before our passage through said yard.

At the beginning of the Walk, for reasons unkown, some hash-smokers, er, hash harriers, chose to walk along the ridges in the rice paddies rather than over the perfectly good path. From a distance the effect was akin to watching someone walk through a snake at the airport, but without there actually being a snake. The farmers tending to their fields did not pay any attention to this strange behaviour and continued with their tasks, either because they had been briefed by our hosts not to stare at the guests, or because they are accustomed to eccentric behaviour due to the proximity of the golf course.

About three quarters of the way, the trail divided into two routes the long one being 50% longer than the short way. The hare forwarned the group that only runners should attempt the long version. Gorf, Do It Yourself, Soreasses, Able Semen and Rubber plus his girlfriend Teng went for the challenge. One check which seemed to go forward with misleading bits of paper, actually required backtracking and that kept these FRBs searching for 15 minutes. Eventually this group found the way forward and arrived back just before the walkers. Unfortunately not everyone heeded the hare's advice. One walker, the Lost Samurai, lived up to his name, but not as much as his companion, Nok Easy whom he cunningly sent out ahead of him on kamikaze missions through prickly bonsai bushes. They eventually returned to home base 45 minutes after the others.

Finally back at base everyone was more than ready for the festivities to begin. A suspiciously high number of participants turned up only for the party. Nam Ron wins the prize for the most fantastical excuse. Apparently a cat hit his bicycle so he couldn’t make it for the Walk. Nonetheless all were made to feel welcome. Nothing was omitted, right down to lifejackets in order to prevent any unfortunate declines in membership numbers. And of course the swimming element provided the additional treat of seeing some of our fellow hashers, such as Hand Cock, in far more detail than we would have ever imagined. Nevertheless, everyone seemed to have a good appetite and the buffet was most popular thanks to the efforts of Wild Woman, Pat on the Back, Men Noie, Oiled Well and Thaitanic. A valiant attempt was made by Shocking to cover the costs of this extravaganza through the sale of t-shirts, but the results were inconclusive, possibly due to the current financial crisis. Or due to the t-shirts.

The business section of the gathering was soon done. On Fire was elected Hash Cash and Nam Ron eagerly assumed the task of Hash Beer. Comes Twice was congratulated on adding two more hashers to our community thanks the efficiency delivery of his wife Jolly Molly. No sooner than he had departed to rejoin his new loved ones, then the group promptly elected him Hash Scribe. Able Semen became Hash Trails and finally, but also least, Shocking was elected Grand Master after he complained that he had been serving in this capacity for ten months without election.

A wonderful time was had by one and all and a final piece of good news is that now that Wirgin Bluce has so much more time on his hands following his relinquishment of the hash scribbler job, he has expressed the wish to host the hashes every month until further notice. (Dream on! on!)

The 98th Running of the

Chiang Rai S2ATO Family Friendly Hash

The Christmas Hash, Saturday, 17th December 2011 Start 3pm Prompt, All Welcome

Hare: Able Semen

According to custom and practice, the Christmas Hash has started and finished at a private house. For some years, Well Oiled and Oiled Well put on a splendid party at their home to mark the occasion. Last year, Wirgin Bluce and Wild Woman did exactly the same at their home. This year, for reasons which I now find totally incomprehensible, I agreed to hare the Christmas Hash and so the event will be staged at my home. I do not intend to try to rival either of my predecessors mentioned above but there will be food laid on (traditional Xmas fare such as fried rice, sweet and sour etc.) and, despite a very heavy schedule at this time of year, Father Christmas has agreed to try to put in an appearance.

First of all then, I need to know rough numbers so that people do not leave the premises unfed. Can you please email me back setting out whether you will be attending and how many will be in your party. If I can have this info by Tuesday noontime, then that would be ideal. Many thanks.

PM Soap if you wish to confirm

Next, the days are at their shortest at this time of year and so it will be advisable for us to start no later than 3pm. There will be a long and a short(er) trail and I would estimate 1.5+ hours to complete the route. Therefore aim to be at my place around 2.45.

OK, now on to the driving directions. It has to be said that my place is not the easiest to find - ask Well Oiled and I am sure that he will concur. Wherever you start from, get on to the Old Chiang Mai Road (or OCMR) and proceed southwards (ie in the direction of Chiang Mai) and watch out for kilometre stone 13 which is on the right hand side of the road.

If approaching by the Superhighway, proceed south until you reach the White Temple traffic lights at Ban Rong Khun. Turn right here and proceed for about 5 kilometres to the end of this road (technically this is a cross road but the road ahead is very small). Turn left here. You are now on the OCMR. Start looking out for KS 13 which will come up on your right after 800 metres.

Remember - it is the number facing the road which you should note. There are actually three numbers on these stones. Use the one facing the road.

Slow down here. After some 2-300 metres, you will see a flashing yellow light on the left side of the road. There is a turning to the left here (it is the first turning to the left after the kilometre stone). Turn left. There will be a Hash sign posted here. Carry on for about two kilometres until you see a white water tower on your right. Turn sharp right here. There will be another helpfully positioned Hash sign here. Carry on for a further kilometre and you will find my house on the left, with yet another Hash sign at the gate.

Once you have arrived, congratulations, you have passed the first initiative test. The second is parking! Car parking at my place is not great. I have a big area of grass but it has sprinklers all over it which makes getting in and, especially, out quite difficult. There are also a couple of adjacent fields. Access to one is very tricky and I do not wish to use the other since the owner is in Singapore and I am unable to ask his approval. The only viable option is to use the road outside the house. I have told the local head man that he can expect some congestion on the day and he simply asked that we park as far to the side of the road as we are able.

If travelling by motorcycle, then please use the garden to park up. However, take care on the drive. I have just regravelled it and used too much stone so motorcycles tend to be a bit unsteady on it at present. It needs a good fall of rain!

This being Christmas, Santa Claus has a special request. Every adult should bring a wrapped present for exchange not over 200 Baht in value. These will be numbered and then corresponding numbers drawn out of a hat for presentation by Santa himself. If what you get is not appropriate for you then you can trade it afterwards. Parents can bring a gift for each of their children with his or her name on it for distribution by Santa as well. We have done this the past three years and it has been a lot of fun.

Finally please remember to get back to me by reply by Tuesday to let me know if you are coming or not so I can organize the food etc.PM soap to confirm

Hope to see you all on the 17th.

Drinkers 150 Baht

Non Drinkers 50 Baht

Chiangrai Family Friendly Christmas Hash

Report of Run #98: Saturday, December 17, 2011

Location: Able Semen abode in Sang Nong Bua village

Hares: Able Semen assisted by Bare Back Rider and Khun Dang

Forty-eight hashers should up for the Christmas hash including 21 men, all foreigners, 18 women, mostly Thai and 10 children. There was no difficulty getting them together as they immediately gravitated to the spacious tent to escape the sun which still beamed warmly at the 3 pm launching time. The challenge was to get them to leave the plastic chairs in which they comfortably ensconced themselves.

Ever ready to provide leadership when it is most desperately needed, your faithful correspondent was the first to start off and led the pack for at least a kilometer until the notorious Nam Ron, urged on by Immaculate Conception, Soreasses and Virgin Fred, abandoned his off-spring and finally caught up. The others followed in the usual disorderly fashion.

Conspicuously present among the following crowd was Bang Cock Chris who never content to walk on his own two feet brought two walking sticks which might conceivably serve as crutches. However in the process of extending the lengths, he managed to disassemble them. Then Scotch on the Rocks leap to the rescue on condition that she got to use one. Once they were repaired, Second Hand Sally observed that she had twisted her ankle. The only one not interested in gallant Bang Cock’s walking sticks was Cop Out who knew that these sticks were too short to provide her satisfaction.

The trail was an A to B to A each lap being 5.5 kilometers. To everyone’s surprise Flying Dutchman now reincarnated after eight months absence managed to arrive at point B just moments ahead of this truthful witness. That last hill however was too much for him and once he spied the hare’s two vehicles hidden in the woods he refused to go a step further. This set an unfortunate example eagerly embraced by all who followed.

Ever conscious of his responsibility to witness all that might transpire, you faithful readers will be relieved to know that your diligent scribe resisted the temptation to rest and persisted along the trail to glory. Shortly after leaving point B he found himself lost in the middle of a field without paper. It seems our frugal hare chose this moment in the middle of a corn field to save on paper. Fortunately Virgin Fred was still within earshot and was able to lead him back to the straight and narrow. In fact only four hashers went beyond point B. Nam Ron and Immaculate Conception managed to find their way back following paper and were rewarded by a filthy tramp through a swamp for their efforts. Knowing that preparation is the key to success, Virgin Fred bought a house immediately behind the Able Semen spread one month before so he could study the land. Thus he and your devoted reporter managed to arrive back at A with dry feet and in spite of the lack of paper.

Meanwhile back at point B, the hare fearing some heart attack might floor our courageous leader, Able Semen showed Shocking how to avoid the hill. All those following in his enormous wake, including Pat on the Back, Superglue, Hom Noi, Sperm Bank, Missed Period and the three Powder Puffs eagerly took unfair advantage of this inside information.

Now back under the tent at Able Semen residence, Shocking called the circle to order to deal with the usual business. The assistant hare, John Robinson was named “Bareback Rider” in recognition of his skills as a professional horse trainer. His better half Noi Nah in turn received the name “Lady Godiva” in view of her legendary equestrian skills. Finally Sean, son of this honest scribe, Wirgin Bluce and Wild Woman became “Immaculate Conception.”

Nam Ron splashed the four teachers for significantly reducing the average age of our group. Wirgin Bluce then condemned them and everyone like them for failing to wear a hash t-shirt. Instead of being inspired by grace and beauty of Nearly Virgin Joi who appeared for her second hash in an award-winning, S2ATO hash t-shirt, it seems these lost souls were led astray by the deployable sartorial example of Special Needs and Special Services who after so many hashes still dress as though they are special. Able Semen concluded the circle by splashing special guest star Nii, wife of the local village headman, who contrary to all hash etiquette, two years ago provided lift to On Fire, Wirgin Bluce, Hand Cock and Helping Hand.

Immediately after the circle, Dang, the better half of Able Semen, provided a wonderful Thai food buffet which the hungry masses consumed totally along with all the beer, soft drinks and every other edible thing which could be found.

The annual Christmas gift giving followed. Everyone brought a present to exchange except Thaitanic and Iceberg who had become so attached to the gifts they had bought that they left them at home. At just the right moment Santa appeared. Some suspect that this Santa might be Dirty Dancer but don’t tell anyone especially Ranger who accused Santa of being a fake. This Santa however convincing demonstrated that no one needs to study at Penn State University in order to create excitement. It was an unforgiveable performance.

Chiangrai Family Friendly Hash Run No 99

Report

The 99th CR Hash proved to be like a good beer, mellow at first blush, but with a pleasant, lingering aftertaste. None of the high drama, of, for

example, the infamous outstation hash (which shall forever remain under a veil of silence), but nonetheless an enjoyable afternoon.

The first part of the walk was along a delightful forest path, not strenuous at all – as Wirgin Bluce remarked, if Shocking is in front, there must be something wrong with the difficulty level.

The second half was perhaps a touch anti-climactic, but only due to the expectations raised by the scenic first portion, and before we knew it we were back at the cars, none of which had been broken into, this being Thailand.

Some ungrateful souls suggested the walk had been too short and easy (Pat on the Back even did a push-up at the end in order to fill her exertion quota), but all in all it was agreed that the trail was well chosen and we would like to thank the hare Handcock for his efforts in clearing the path, he still has the scars to prove it. The usual suspects came in first, namely Namron, Fired Up, Able Semen, Flying Dutchman and Crash.

Numbers at this hash were modest, to the extent that the majority of the attendees were called Molly, which spurred our wordsmiths to crowbar the words “mollify” and “mollycoddle” into their Circle orations, very droll.

Five virgins were inducted into our sect, Red Hot from NY, Pole Dancer from Oregon, Lost Potato from Idaho [this is a state in the US], and Barely Able and Barely Legal from the Philippines. Our Filipino inductees seemed slightly nervous in anticipation of what initiation rites the red-faced brutes would make them go through, and were visibly relieved after the naming ceremony was over.

Able Semen was extremely warm and welcoming towards our new members Red Hot and Pole Dancer, at which point they began claiming that they were leaving the country shortly and wouldn’t really be coming to that many more hashes. Hmmm.

It must be mentioned that newcomers, Janey from Canada and Sh”*ç%”ç% from Japan did go through a truly cruel and unnatural hazing ritual (voluntarily!), namely drinking glasses of Coca Cola down in one.

The Circle was held in the middle of a road, but members did allow the public to pass, and even greeted some of them, in the vernacular (“Sawatdikup”). Let it never be said that members of the CR Hash do no engage with the local community.

Our GM, the aptly named Shocking, was as usual an MC extraordinaire, and I don’t care what anyone says behind his back, it doesn’t matter if most people can’t understand him, it’s the thought that counts. After some time we had a switch to received pronunciatim Able Semen, and then Wirgin Bluce took over and injected his customary gravitas into the proceedings. Various administrative matters were dealt with, such as the next confirmed hares: Able Semen in Feb, Scotch on the Rocks and Cop Out in March, Lost Samurai in May and Special Needs and Special Services in Oct, but the important point to remember is that Brain Health committed to funding 4 (four) cases of whichever beer is chosen for the 100th hash, regardless of how many bottles there are in each case.

On! On!

Chiangrai Family Friendly Hash Report # Run No 100

Report of Run# 100 Friday to Sunday February 17 through 19, 2012

Hares: Able Semen supplemented by Nam Ron, Red Hot and Pole Dancer

Location: Baan Ruam Mitr (Elephant Camp) Chiangrai town and Rai Boon Rawd

Friday Night Pub Crawl

It took a hundred runs before the Chiang Rai “Family Friendly” S2ATO (Start Slowly and Taper Off) Hash finally got around to doing anything innovative but at last that moment has come. On the eve of the great occasion beginning at 7:30 pm armed with only a hairy tennis ball and packet of manioc flour, Nam Ron boldly bounced out a trial from the Condoms and Cabbages to the Wangcom Hotel. Five very different bars lay along the way. The group began with your faithful correspondent, Pole Dancer, Red Hot, Soon to be Virgins Mindy and Kelly plus Not Yet Virgin Antony. At the first spot, Chiangrai Belly, we encountered our leader Shocking well into his beer along with Backsliders Boy Magnet and Pickled Prick. At the next spot, Rico’s, Mecca of expatriate residents, our numbers increased with the addition of the weekend’s hare, Able Semen then licking his wounds from a recent motorcycle accident along with Rubber and Fat Cat. Next we headed over the Chiangrai Hipster an outdoor place which was jumping with local kids. Going to the opposite extreme we hit Lek House on Tanalai Road where we were the only customers in their bamboo abode. Finally we staggered into the bar kitty-corner to the Wangcom Hotel where his pockets empty and his belly full, this truthful reporter left the others to continue their sins.

Saturday, Chiang Rai Hash 100th Run

The next day the group now greatly enlarged returned to Rico’s for registration and t-shirt distribution There were 43 of us including 5 children, and 14 women. This number included two extremes four virgins and eight hard core hashers from Chiangmai. The latter could be readily identified by their more risqué t-shirts and Rambo-style gear but otherwise they really looked quite similar to the Chiang Rai hashers.

Our Swiss German correspondent asserts here that at Rico’s we were of course received with the warm and gracious hospitality for which the Swiss are so renowned. He then goes on to observe that the t-shirts distributed bore a likeness of Shocking on the front, came in a choice of S, M, L or 2XL (for Shocking) and contained only one typo. This he declares makes it a real steal. The best customers were the Chiangmai hashers who, it seems were not as un-family friendly as is generally claimed. Many bought an extra presumably as a peace offering to partners left back home. Our shirts have gained some notoriety among hash circles as the only hash paraphernalia which people dare to wear outside hash circles.

From Rico’s the jolly group continued by boat to the Elephant Village, where the walk began. During the boat journey hashers were able to observe the Chiang Rai construction boom on both sides of the river, including at the Elephant Village itself where a new structure has been built that compares unfavourably to the old one (yes, this is possible) in terms of architectural merit.

Able Semen had laid out 2 trails, one steep and one relatively flat. Eighteen hashers including three children, four virgins and one recently delivered mother who didn’t know better dared to scale the steep option. Those who had the courage to look down, got the benefit of spectacular views over the Kok River. Being in Elephant Country we were also given a safety briefing (*yawn*) about what to do when encountering an elephant, but it was nonetheless with some surprise that we did actually come across one halfway through the walk. However he went and hid behind a bush (not easy when you’re an elephant) upon seeing (smelling?) the hashers, possibly because he took them to be his next ride. In any event, if a hasher does ever find himself in danger of being charged by an elephant, this is a situation where it is vitally important to be with a carefully chosen companion. This is because it will not be possible to outrun the elephant, so it is important to outrun the companion. For this reason the smallest children, Ranger, Buffalo Bill and Johnny Walker had lots of companionship on this trip, notably Nam Ron, Comes Twice, Jolly Molly, Pole Dancer, Red Hot, Barely Legal, Most Wanted plus Virgins Jereme and Kelly who despite their inexperience know a good thing when they see it. One thing that really impressed the Chiangmai hashers was how the paper went directly under the elephant. How did the hare manage that trick? Able Semen refused to divulge any “family friendly” secrets.

However steep trail went up and down, drainage at points could be a problem as Virgin Kelly discovered when she slipped knee deep into a puddle of mud. Just as Turkish Delight’s eye wandered to a busty lady leaning over some rice plants, he fell also into a pothole. When his cries for help failed to elicit the desired fondling attention, he was obliged to limp onwards for eventual evacuation to hospital. Likewise Horny Monkey found no sympathy when he was caught doing willful damage to a bamboo bridge with one leg dangling down between two poles.

Keeping on paper was no easy task. It seems our hare raided a confetti factory to get this run’s supply. The tiny pieces easily disappeared into the surrounding flora. Your devoted correspondent followed most the trail with founding GM Brain Health who after 35 years of hashing in Thailand has developed a practiced eye for paper. Nonetheless we lost our way many times but eventually saw Lost Potato and Virgin Bryan chasing up a hill in the distance. Unfortunately for them, they had stumbled upon the flatter route and were headed in the wrong direction. Some villagers sorted us out.

Our very own Flying Dutchman kept pace with Square Rooter and the other Chiangmai FRBs but at the end they were overtaken by Craven Image who slipstreamed in the enormous wake of Shocking and Fat Cat who accompanied by Kitty Kat and Belly Dancer, short-cutted the last hill. Meanwhile the twenty-five other hashers like Cop Out, Bang Cock, Second Hand and Scotch on the Rocks who chose to do the relatively flat route, leisurely wound their way about while Cop Out’s enamoured husband Virgin Pim serenaded.

Age and sorry experience trumped youth on this hash as most of the younger crowd got lost and had to be picked up by the old, sorry experienced hashers after they became tired of waiting in the elephant stables. The tricky point of etiquette as to which of the lady hashers should be given the comfortable seat inside the pickup was ingeniously resolved by Frozen Dick who commandeered the seat for himself. Last in were Barely Legal and Most Wanted who had become so absorbed in their own romancing that they failed to notice the absence of paper and had to call for assistance.

The boat trip back to Chiangrai landing in the cool of the setting sun was even more pleasant that outward trip. Once back on solid ground, the two Specials disappeared along with Soreasses and Marmalaid. Likewise our devoted scribe, Comes Twice slipped into the darkness with Jolly Molly so the story continues with input from this humble replacement.

GM Shocking called the circle to order to splash the hare and the virgins and visitors in the time honoured way. In his own immitigable style he recognized the founding couple of our hash, Brain Health and Just Perfect. Of the 99 people who came out to that first hash, the three were present this day happened to be the hares on that occasion, notably Brain Health, Square Rooter and yours truly. Brain Health and Buffalo Bill, aged 69 and 7 were honoured as the oldest and youngest people to complete the steep trail.

The formalities completed we got down to the serious business of the circle. Mindy was named “Most Wanted” with fond memories of her recent flirtations with the FBI. Shinji now retired from Air Canada got the name “Mile High.” Virgin Kelly demonstrated cartwheels as an alternative form of hashing. Virgin Jereme topped that by walking on her hands into the eager embrace of Horny Monkey. Not to be outdone Fat Cat insisted on showing off his idea of the back flip. His particular profile uniquely facilitated rolling around on the floor. Through all of this, the beer continued to flow thanks to the generousity of Brain Health who donated four cases to the worthy cause.

Now back at Rico’s for the On! On! On! Rico produced a buffet in such vast quantities that even 40 hashers could not consume it all. That served only to ready the crowd for the long night which stretched ahead. Your faithful correspondent like Cinderella had a deadline to meet and must let the story end there.

Sunday, Hangover Hash

However there is a postscript. As the last item of business at the circle, Red Hot and Pole Dancer announced that there would be a hangover hash the next morning and that anyone who got to the rendezvous point before 10:30 am would get a free cup of coffee. Eighteen hashers showed up in various stages of dehydration desperately in need of something to wake them out of their stupor. These included six women and two children, Ranger and Buffalo Bill plus two virgins Pedro and Elisha and Backslider Boy Magnet. Only Bushwacker, the dog looked eager for what would follow.

The trail wound around the rubber plantations of Rai Boonrawd off Old Chiangmai Road. As the sun rose in the sky and the coffee stimulus wore off, the hills seemed to rise steeper and valleys became ever muddier. At the last check, none of the alternative trails evidenced paper. This called for more creative solution which I am proud to report that your truthful correspondent discovered in his discrete sojourn behind an off-trail tree. Determined at last to be “first in” amongst the reduced competition, Able Semen and Flying Dutchman soon supplanted yours truly in the lead and claimed the final laurels for themselves.

On! On!
