Despite having a dose (Covid) Drag Queen and Noname Avril managed to lay the trail for run #486.

The herd gathered in the car park of the Good Moon restaurant, at 1655, Rubber duck, standing in for Drag Queen, called the circle. As there were no hares RD related what DQ had passed on to him. 

At 17:00 the herd moved out. After about an hour the first runner, Flying Scotsman, returned followed closely by the other runners. The walkers then started staggering back. Refreshments were provided by the beirmaister Mud Man. 

RD received a call from Smelly Fingers saying he was off paper and lost. After working out where he was RD gave him direction to the carpark. 10 minutes later SF rang back, he was still unsure how to get back and was knackered. Donga volunteered to be a good Samaritan and went to rescue SF. As soon as they returned RD called the circle. 

The runners and walkers said that the trail, a mixture of new and old trails was good, the walkers agreed. RD was given a down down as a proxy for DQ. 

Newcomers and visitors were invited into the circle, from Phuket, Semen stains, Sub standard, Doesn't touch the sides, Butt plug, Open plug and one other. 

Semen stains, Sub standard, Doesn't touch the sides have just moved to Hua Hin. Noname Gerald was welcomed back, as was Hugs and Cute Comer and all had down downs.

Noname Gerald was brought back and the herd was asked to find a name for him. After much debate, it was agreed to name him Sauerkrap. RD performed the ceremony and the Beer Wenches christened him with iced water. 

Bite mark and Easy off gave the location of the next H2H3 hash as being at Sam Phraya, Cha Am. 

As there was no other business the circle was closed and social drinking resumed. About 22 attended the on after in the restaurant.

Hash Chronicles: Hua Hin Hide-and-Seek


Trail Tales: On the 20th of January, a lively group of 42 Hashers, including 4 virgins, embarked on a rural escapade near the Immigration office in Hua Hin. The hares' cunning markings led the way, with twists, turns, and a maze of false trails, keeping the pack on their toes.

Low Crawl and Water Crossing Adventure: Amidst the rural charm, Hashers encountered a unique challenge: a very low obstacle that demanded an almost belly crawl (thoughts of military training under barbed wire came to mind), injecting a playful spirit into the run. An unexpected challenge that added spice to the pursuit.

Later, a water crossing, approximately 1.5m wide, tested the Hashers' agility, with an old milk crate (?) topped with metal mesh serving as the daring stepping stone.

Perfect Weather Perks: Blessed with fine and warm weather, the Hashers conquered the rural trail with enthusiasm, basking in the sun's glow without the heaviness of humidity, turning the pursuit into a refreshing and obstacle-filled escapade.

Colourful Attendance and Special Recognitions: The Hash was a lively gathering of 42 participants, including 4 virgins—those embarking on their first Hash adventure—and 4 returners, seasoned Hashers returning to the fold. The mix of fresh faces and familiar ones added to the vibrant atmosphere.

The post-run circle, led by guest RA’s Ding-A-Ling and visitor Alka Sleazer, brought about moments of hilarity and camaraderie. Special charges were levied, and amidst the festivities, Head Ballcock was honoured with a 100-run award—a testament to the dedication and Hashing spirit.

Despite considerable effort, the circle could not agree on a Hash Name for 'Just Bob' and thus this most important task of Hashing was deferred.

Heartfelt Welcome and Appreciation: In a touching moment, the Hash community warmly welcomed back the GM, who had recently returned from an ICU hospital stay. She expressed her sincere gratitude for the generosity of the Hashers in supporting with her medical bills. The outpouring of support and warm welcome created a poignant and heartening atmosphere.

Post-Run Celebrations: Following the run, most participants gathered for the standard circle—filled with announcements, awards, and good-natured banter. The circle set the stage for the evening's after-event—a hearty meal at Bullies.

Dinner at Bullies: The day's adventure concluded with a delicious evening meal at Bullies, where Hashers continued to share stories, laughter, and the camaraderie that defines the Hash House Harriers spirit.

Hash Vibes: The Hash near the Immigration Office on January 20th was more than a run; it was an exhilarating rural exploration with unexpected challenges, adding a unique twist to the global Hash House Harriers saga.

Until the Next Hunt: As the sun set on our rural Hua Hin escapade on January 20th, with a vibrant circle of 42 Hashers, we left with tired legs, full hearts, and the promise of another Hash adventure just around the bend.

Rgds,
Colin Faith

Comment by Cathusalem

I only attended to collect donations for the Help Drag Queen Recover fund and did not participate in the run. Apologies to the Hares, On On! 


Write-up by Rubber Duck

Lead Hare, Dave the Rave, caused a traffic jam on the road to the carpark by stopping in the middle of the track to place the merge sign and shredded paper. Arriving hashers were greeted by Cathusalem, resplendent in a red dress and glittering hair. He proceeded to ask hashers to fill his handbag with donations for Drag Queen's medical bill's.

The circle was called and DtR instructed the herd, he cautioned that in some areas he had laid minimal paper.

As soon as  the herd set off, the red dress lady departed with he bulging handbag. 

Unlike most Hares he did not lie, after only 100 metres the paper disappeared,  On On was called when someone found blue tape on a tree then a few strings of paper. The Walkers easily found the merge sign and more paper than the rest of the trail.

The runners and Walkers gave a thumbs up for the trail.

Visitors and returners were interrogated, 5 hashers without Hash shirts were punished.Dimwit told a terrible joke, Tinks informed the circle about the out station for H2H3, the circle was closed for social drinking.

Photos from the run and the Christmas party

I wish to warn all of you that the ageing process has reduced my ability to remember anything of consequence. I therefore proceed with trepidation as my forthcoming manuscript will be vague at best or a complete misinterpretation of the event.

Anyway, I digress and will proceed under the adage “Do not let the truth get in the way of a good story”.

Between 2.00 to 3.00 on Saturday afternoon, a motley multinational gang of 30 or so hashers gathered to hear and experience what was in store for them.

Ding a Ling as principal hare for the day stepped forward to tell all about the run, unfortunately as Ding a Link heralds from Yorkshire his broad accent was wasted on the visiting contingent from China who could only guess what he was talking about.

At 3.02 exactly we all set off onto the trail through an undergrowth of tangled weeds and well-distributed rubbish. Fortunately, a winding dirt trail was encountered and we were then able to follow a well-marked trail, with the occasional Check or False Trail to deter any complacency of this being an easy stroll.

After 2km and a road crossing, we then experienced a strait trail of some 1.5km which allowed all of us backmarkers to see how far behind we were on the trail. Somewhere along this trail, the runners were directed off to the right to who knows where and reappeared about 300m from the finish point Thankfully at the end of this Mulsanne Strait (Le Mans race analogy) we also headed back on a dirt track over a dam and back to the finish to enjoy the waiting amber nectar.

After a pause for socializing and topping up a now-thirsty stomach with beer, we lurched into the final Circle to hear Rubber Duck condemn any miscreant of sins during the trail. As earlier advised my memory fails on how riveting the dialogue and charges apparently were.

General consensus of the trail was that it was marginally better than staying at home.

At about 5.00 we all started to dwindle away for a shower before returning to enjoy the Christmas party at the Good Moon Restaurant

Between 6.30 to 7.00 the hashers started arriving at Good Moon restaurant with different anticipation of what may be in store for this Christmas extravaganza

At 7.15 a buffet of Asian and Farang food was made available for the attendees who hit the tables like locusts’ so much so that when Ding a Ling arrived at 7.35 little was left for him – he was heard to cry that he was informed that the buffet would be available from 7.30 ……(life is a sh…t)

While we all sat down and started consuming vast quantities of food and alcohol our resident singer Dave the Vape treated us to the compendium of Alan Bennet / Frank Sinatra type croonin songs. Food and thirst sated Dave changed the mood for dancing which all the attending ladies were waiting for - Smoochy, Rock and Roll and Salsa were delivered for the feverish crowd to enjoy. It was at this point Knockout Neptune wished to demonstrate his dancing prowess and zoomed in on one of the Chinese ladies.

BIG MISTAKE if this lady had not won the Strictly Come Dancing Competition or a least been a runner up it would have been a travesty. Swirling, overhead and underhand turns, bum gyrating and manic leg movements left Knockout almost living up to his name and retiring completely knackered. 

Fortunately, the other attendees were either engrossed in their own attempts at arms and leg rhythmic coordination or the voyeurs watching whether the breasts of Dava our Mongolian lady visitor would actually be fully contained by her skimpy bra.

As the evening wore on Cathusalem gave us a rendition of the trumpet voluntarily or similar and a hot off-the-press number he had penned himself. Although rhyming well we were all bemused by the terminology “The Sideways Hash”.

Finally, at 10.00 there was a movement towards the exits as hashers had either drunk too much, were exhausted by too much dancing, or had fallen out with their respective wives. For more information or clarification of any of the above please talk with Ding a Ling or Rubber Duck who probably have a completely different view of the day.

A great day and evening was had by all and congratulations must go to the restaurant staff and those who had organized a great day's entertainment.

Hi All

Firstly I have been railroaded into  my first and after you all read this my last write up (unless money changes hands etc)

As this was my first hash back I thought I would get prepared and ready for my Batman sorry driver to pick me up at 3:30ish 

I was told that the car was quite old but not quite prepared for what came round the corner to collect me as it had a close resemblance to Stephenson's rocket but to be fair it and the driver performed admirably and got us to our hash location smoothly.

I was looking forward to saying hi to everyone so quickly changed into my running shoes and warmed up doing 50 press ups and sit ups, and as I stretched my honed and toned lithe muscular frame a gentle breeze lifted my golden locks and sent them cascading over my bronzed shoulders , I could see the admiring glances I was getting so quickly replaced my hat and relaxed my muscles as

No sense in puffing out my chest and posing on my first hash back, Anyway I digress after saying hi to everyone we circled up and the hares hugmananny goat and cute cummer proceeded to tell us checks false trails etc go back on yourself follow paper on right then left side I was so confused at one stage that I didn’t know whether to follow my arse or my elbow , so put plan A into action follow ding a ling who the last time I hashed was a good steady Walker so imagine my horror when ding a ling went scampering off like a gazelle into the distance so I was stumped 🤔 then I looked to my side and was startled to see what appeared to be a bear towing a big Irish lump behind him I enquired to a mr paddy red belly the owner and he assured me it was a dog but I will have a closer inspection from afar next week , I briefly saw FRB Hong ting tong and head ball cock racing out of sight in the distance so as they were a no no i tagged onto the back of a Canadian I will now refer to as blind Pugh! after not seeing any hashers ahead of us I quickly 

came to the conclusion we were not on the correct trail so got my hash book out and read RULE number 1 follow paper , I retraced my steps and along with mr Pugh picked up the trail again , we passed the youngsters who were chattering and seemed to be enjoying themselves , I had been told they were heard singing on the trail previously so imagine my surprise half way round when I heard the dulcet sound of whispering grass only to see swindlers pissed run past me ! I looked round for Windsor Davies but he didn’t appear 

I was flagging now and after being passed by old Mac Donald cathusalem blind Pugh and uncle tom cobley I was thinking I might not get home but then my flared nostrils smelt it and just when I thought I know that smell 🧐 I saw a mr mannfred who was behind me suddenly kick in his turbo and race off into the distance then I realised what the smell was and it was the smell of a chang beer being opened ! I raced after mannfred but it was to no avail as when I eventually got to the finish all the deck chairs were taken and mannfred was on his third chang😩 you can rest assure that from now on when you see mannfred on the trail I won’t be far behind him. Rubber duck took the circle and the hares got a thumbs up for a very good trail and some hashers got suitably punished for misdeeds etc then on to on after where a nice meal and chin wag was enjoyed. It was really nice to see old and new friends and I was happy to see some younger friends of Tinks daughter orange pippin as I think it’s a bit of a different world out there now for them compared with the older brigade👍 lastly I’d just like to thank all the hares and committee of hashes for the excellent work they put in to provide a fun exercise and social scene for people. Also a big get better soon to drag queen and CIAF who have been poorly recently. Well done to everyone who took part and if anyone wants to sue me my lawyer a Mr J Noble Daggert will be pleased to hear from you.

Regards Dimwit
