Hash House Harriers

Recommended Posts

We had a very good Hash. We were more than 15 people climbing the Buffalo Hill upwards and downwards. Not much running but it was 54 tough, very tough minutes!!. :o:D:D:D:D

There were people coming all the way from Holland, 4 beautiful ladies and some from Chiang Mai.

After we could have a nice shower and a swim in the pool.

Then Win had prepared a very nice meal with ricesoup, spaghetti, sallad, Sweet mango with sticky rice and lots of fruits. This was much more than the normal snacks!

And of course we had a lot of beer after. I tested four different types and the most interesting was a very dark stout brewed in Malaysia, 8% !!! :D

This was a Hash we never forget!

Thanks Win ! :D:D:D

Hi all:

Thanks, God! Finally HHH has arrived CEI. Why has it taken all long. So CEI is no longer a backwater as my good friend likes to tell me.

I recall it has been around since I was a "real" dek (kid) and now honestly I am getting old or at least feel that way.

No, like Limbo, I will not run or jog. My doc advised me not to as it will hurt my back. No good for someone who has performed a stuntman act diving into Koh Samui with a motor bike. Great if I am allowed to brisk-walk and I would probably want to join on condition it is organized properly.

The beer at the end when everyone has arrived is the ritual. But before each HHH run, someone has to actually decide on a trail and lay down pieces of markers every few hundreds meter along the trail for the members to follow and find the trail. The fun is sometimes many would get lost and never get to the end of the rainbow where there is no pot of gold but lots beers! The markers are meant for the hares to go after the herriers or the other way around!?

When is the next event, where and who to contact?

Hi Dek,

I am happy to hear that you are interested to join the Honourable Group of Hashers!

You can tell your friends that Chiang Rai has had HHH since 2004 and I think the next run will be number 19.

It is always the third Saturday every month and normally it starts 4PM sharp.

Most people take it easy and have a good walk but there are always a bunch of youngsters that go for it and that is good. They find the way for the rest of us!

When next run is decided it will be announced here in TV in this topic!

See you !!

ps and if you are really into this HHH then you can go to Chiang Mai in end of October and join the other 6000 people from 94 countries for the World Hash!

Dek, to be sure that we survive it (these dare-devils must have climbed the Doi Kao Kwai, which is a real calf-biter), let's join the soap-section of the Chiang Rai HHH.

And don't forget to bring your camera :D

Hi Svenivan, Thanks for the input. So the next event is scheduled for June 17, the 3rd Sat of the month.

I recall once I was in Songkla staying at the beautiful Samila Beach Hotel (the old one before they tore it down and put up an ugly structure that I hate), there was HHH group just arrived at the beach at the Nai Wan Seafood restaurant. Boy, I could see how much fun they were having. Yes, with family members too assuming they were all waiting at the end of the rainbow for the goodies. Therefore, I suggest we can plan one the same way to arrive at Chiang Rai beach and have fun by the beach now the Songkran crowds will not return till next April. Or perhaps it has been done?

Yes, I do look forward to seeing you all next month if I am not stuck in Chiang Mai University giving guest lecture to a group of post-graduate students.

Dek Mai, Dekbannok

Ya, Limbo. You said it. I also thought Doi Kao Kwai is only for the dare-devils. Even my car had a hard time climing up the hill last time I was there. You know, I think in the old days only baffalos went up there and they did not seemed to have survived. They managed to get up there but could not come down and their bodies simply melted away leaving only the horns remained on the top of the hill. That's how they got the name "Doi Kao Kwai" I believe. Please enlighten me if I am wrong as you know I am a new kid on the block or dek mai Chiang Rai.

:o:D:D NEXT HASH :D:D:D

Greetings to all hashers!

Our next run will take place on Saturday June 17 beginning

at 4 p.m.

Nam Rawn dearly remembered for his unforgetable

Kok River run is haring again!

This time the run will start and end at his piece of

land in Suan Dok. From Chiang Rai, take the

superhighway south. At the traffic light near the

white wat (Rong Kun), take a right. Drive until you

hit the old Chiang Mai road. Go straight across the

intersection into a village and look for the HHH

signs.

It is about 15 km. south of Chiang Rai. Plan on at least

a 20 minute drive from the Big C.

In an effort to make up for past sins, Nam Rawn is thinking about offering 2 runs,

a long one that is challenging and a simpler walk in the woods.

Please RSVP to Nam Rawn ( jeff@kenoji.com) as he needs to know how

much food to get.

:D:D:D:D

Coming from town:

The main East-West street (Tannalai Road) to Pratu Chiang Mai, straight on, Rayotha Road to Den Ha and straight on again the old road to Chiang Mai.

After a while you pass Kurt's oistrich farm, the Kanchanaphisek Technical school and Ban Nong Moh.

Some five kilometers further you see a Christian Church at your left. That's Ban Sun Dok (sp?).

About hundred meters further a T-crossing with the big road to Wat Rong Kun going to the left.

But it isn't a T-crossing!

And why not?

Because there is a little soi going to the right!

And that's the one Ivan mentions.

You take this soi untill it ends about hundred meter further. There you take to the right over a little bridge.

After this little bridge you take immediatly to the left. And you will be very close!

And you can pick another moment to go to Big C. I guess Den Ha (to the right is Pattaya Noi) to Ban Sun Dok will be about 12 kilometers.

Hi Svenivan,

I hope that "It is always the third Saturday every month and normally it starts 4PM sharp" still is valid as it now collides with an other event the 17th.

Are you sure you got the date right?

The other event I referred to was the opening of the exhibition 'Snappers' at 9 Art Gallery/Architect Studio. Same day at 19.00 pm.

I didn't even dare to mention Oneeyed's alternatives.
