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.

HISTORIC 3 COUNTRIES HASH

THAILAND--MYANMAR--LAOS

over 60 hashers of many nationalities from thailand

and cambodia attended this historic 3 countries hash

on 13th october.

the hash started in typical fashion,start slow and

taper off when it took 2 hours for the coach driver to

arrive at the starting point,but on reflection he did

his best to manoevure cross country to the start

point.

the first leg of about 5k took just under an hour

for the FRBS to arrive at the chiang saen immigration

and were quickly ushered on to to the waiting boats by

the smiling thai officials without any fuss or

problem.

the boats arrived at the myanmar casino after a

choppy crossing due to a cloud burst on the laos side

this time we were welcomed by the myanmar officials

who once again ushered the hashers through.

here we were given the option of joining the FRBS

on a run of about 4k or taking a stroll around the

casino grounds to a restaurant were myanmar beer and

snacks would be served,i was reluctantly persuaded to

take the easy option and was first in line to sample

the excellent myanmar beer.

the next boat ride took the hashers over to laos

again past the laos officials without any fuss,this

time yours truly had no option but to bravely hash

through dense bush and mud after the earlier cloud

burst for at least 3k only to be heckled by the words

"why are we waiting" by some of the hashers waiting on

the boat for the final leg.

the boats dropped the hashers off at a restaurant on

the mekong river were the beer sot,excellent food and

the comedy show in the circle all added to this

historic hash that will never be forgotten

hangover hash

marc lavoie(paddy boy)mike (godzilla) and friends

were not satisfied in spending many hours organising

the 3 countries hash so to coinside with marcs 40th

birthday the memorable weekend was concluded with marc

and his charming wife inviting all hashers to a

birthday hash/party at his beautiful land behind

chaingrai university,once again the hospitality and

circle banter knew no bounds.

many thanks to marc and fellow hashers

on on

Hi all

Saturday Nov 17 is our anniversary run. It will take place near my farm off the road to the Khon Korn waterfalls. To get there starting at the Big C, go south towards Bangkok on Highway 1 about 10 kilometers. At the traffic light turn right. Drive past the white temple to the end of the road (about 4 km). At the three way intersection turn left. Here you will go another 5 km or so and then turn right at the sign which says Khun Korn Waterfalls (HHH sign). Go along this road about 4 km. Where the road sharply to the left at a temple, (HHH sign) you turn into the temple on your left and park. It will take about 25 minutes to get there from the Big C.

If you are already in town, drive south through Den Haa on the old Chiangmai road. About 15 km beyond Den Haa you come to the run off to Khun Korn Waterfalls. Turn right there and follow the instructions as above. It will take about 20 minutes to get there from the bridge at Pratu Chiangmai.

There will be a short cut for young children and those otherwise not able to do the whole route. That cuts out the most challenging (and exciting) part. So this run is open to all.

Hope to see you at 4 pm sharp.

On! On!

This Saturday will be the 4th Annual Chiang Rai Hash. To celebrate the occasion, Wild Woman and Wirgin Bluce have offered to host the party at their property on the Khun Korn Waterfall road. Wild Woman will wine and dine attendees but she asks you contact her directly at 081-602-1666 so that she knows how much food to prepare. Also the new GM and supporting offices will be chosen so we need your nominations and votes. Because the sun is setting earlier, THE HASH WILL START AT 3-30PM

There will be two courses - an easy course for the children and the less adventurous and a longer course that offers some of the most spectacular scenery of any CR hash. Wirgin Bluce has already sent out driving directions (SEE ABOVE POST) but if you have any questions, give me a call.

Hope to see you Sat. and bring the kids!

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.

Can you tell me more about HHH?

I have been living out of the country for over a decade. A Bangkok native, but will be living in Chiang Rai soon. I am looking for activities or social events that my Fahrang husband will enjoy and feel comfortable with, particularly as a warm up for his new life in Chiang Rai.

Hashing . . . it's a mixture of athleticism and sociability, hedonism and hard work; a refreshing break from the nine-to-five routine. Hashing is an exhilaratingly fun combination of running, orienteering, and partying, where bands of harriers and harriettes chase hares on eight-to-ten kilometer-long trails through town, country, jungle, and desert, all in search of exercise, camaraderie, and good times.

Hashing, as we know it today, began in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1938, when a group of restive British company men started a hare & hounds running group. They named the group after their meeting place, the Selangor Club, aka the "Hash House." Hash House Harrier runs were patterned after the traditional British public school paper chase. A "hare" would be given a short head start to blaze a trail, marking his devious way with shreds of paper, soon to be pursued by a shouting pack of "harriers." Only the hare knew where he was going . . . the harriers followed his marks to stay on trail. Apart from the excitement of chasing down the wily hare, solving the hare's marks and reaching the end was its own reward, for there, thirsty harriers would find a tub of iced-down beer.

Hashing died during World War II (Japanese occupying forces being notoriously opposed to civilian fun), but came back to life in the post-war years, spreading slowly through Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, and New Zealand, then exploding in popularity in the late 70s and early 80s. Today there are thousands of Hash House Harrier clubs in all parts of the world, complete with newsletters, directories, and regional and world hashing conventions.

Despite its growth, hashing hasn't strayed far from its British and Malaysian roots. A typical hash "kennel" is a loosely-organized group of 20-40 men and women who meet weekly or biweekly to chase the hare. We follow chalk, flour, or paper, and the trails are never boring. When forced to, we'll run the occasional street or alley, but in general we prefer shiggy . . . fields, forests, jungles, swamps, streams, fences, storm drains, and cliffs. And although some of today's health-conscious hashers may shun a cold beer in favor of water or a diet soda, trail's end is still a party. Perhaps that's why they call us the "drinking club with a running problem!"

So . . . if you'd like to spice up your running program with fun, good company, new surroundings, and physical challenge, try hashing. Just remember one thing . . . never wear new shoes to the hash!
