WHAT’S A HASH??

The South Lantau Hash House Harriers meets once a month for a hash — a walk/run based on the British tradition of a ‘hounds and hares’ paper chase.

Two ‘hares’ go out and set a trail, either with chalk, flour, or shredded paper, and it is the job of the ‘hounds’ to try to find and follow the correct trail.

The hash is set with checkpoints and false trails, and often with variations for runners (Rambos) or walkers (Wimps), so no matter your physical, mental or spiritual fitness, there is a trail for everyone.

After the run, there are libations for all, with multiple beastly cold beers for down-downs.

SLH3 runs are $50 for adults and $20 for kids, which includes drinks

SLH3 Run #34: Tung Chung at 4.00 p.m

Dear Hashers All,

WHAT: A North Lantau Run…promises of virgin trail, romantic views (and sunsets…for the thick, lame & lazy) plus seats and toilets. (What’s next – umbrellas in drinks?) and… OH YES!  Blizzard Cold Beer, Free Massages (DIY), Mildly irritating Circle and more irritating Drinking, Sinking und Singing. Men; HK$60, Women who drink like men: HK$40, Children who don’t drink: HK$20 (children who do drink: shame on you and see Men’s rates!!), Galumphs, since 1872, ‘to prance about in a self-satisfied manner’, according to Lewis Carroll, i.e.  those who don’t go out on trail, at all, or shortcut back to the Bucket to guzzle the beers: HK$70!! Cheeky bludgers!)

 

Dog F**K, of ‘KH3 experience’, will provide…a run that will be an A to A, with a hard (well semi-hard, after all it is by KH3 standards??), but a scenic Rambo 7.7 K (420M elevation take camera for good HKIA shots) and normal Wimps 7.6 K with less elevation and walkers can follow the IN Trail as far as they like and about turn.

 

WHEN: SATURDAY 24th SEP 16:00 (4PM, GM!)

 

WHERE: See attached street view and google map link.  https://goo.gl/maps/VwhkNPd4VwR2  https://goo.gl/maps/VwhkNPd4VwR2

THE FOOTBALL PITCH on Man Tung Road Tung Chung opposite Caribbean Coast Tower 6 , Tung Chung North Park) (Explicit Directions: Tung Chung MTR (Exit D) – Turn left inside Citigate Centre (aircon route) –

Up the escalator – 2 levels – Head across walkway towards Carribean Coast  Drop down to Man Tung Road (end of aircon)- turn right -walk until you see tall orange man icon or football field, whichever first.. (don’t expect grass – if you are new to Hong Kong!)

31st of July: Kia Oro Piapia Pakeha (G’day Ya DrinkingBluddyForeigners),

I neither confirm or deny this ‘All Black” Whakanui (party!)

But… should you be appropriately attired (B&W), you may be forced through the green hills, past golden beaches, under blue skies and drenched in amber nectar.

Being a Sunday, the faithful kuri (dogs), will no doubt enjoy the pastoral care of the Religious Advisors and the strains of the Choral Ensemble!

Not a bad way to watch the sun go down…

The overseas pack should take the 15:50 Hohoro Reti (Fast Canoe) or the 15:10 – for a pre-lube at the China Bear, where the local SLH3 Nuinga (people) will gather at 16:30 to hear the wisdom of the Mohio Purahorua Rapeti (Clever Scout Rabbit) before setting off on the whati (run or go walk-about, mate!)

SOUTH LANTAU HASH SONGS FOR THE CIRCLE (you are called to memorize all of them)

DOWN-DOWN SONG (True Blue)
Here’s to __________,
He’s (she’s/they’re) true blue,
He’s (she’s/they’re) a Hasher, through and through,
He’s (she’s/they’re) a Pisspot, so they say,
Tried to go to Heaven,
But he (she/they) went the other way!
Drink It down, down, down . . .

WHY WAS HE BORN SO BEAUTIFUL?
Why was he born so beautiful?
Why was he born at all?
He’s no f***ing use to anyone,
He’s no f***ing use at all?
He may be a joy to his mother,
But he’s a pain in the ass to me.

DOES A HASHER? (Do Your Balls Hang Low?)
Does a hasher like to walk,
Does a hasher like to run,
Does a hasher like to be
Where they’re all having fun?
Can a hasher drink ice cold beer,
While the circle sing and cheer?
Time to drink or wear it, O what the heck,
Do hasher always do, and get it down yer neck!
Down, down, down

S/HE’S ALRIGHT (She’s alright)
S/He’s alright. S/He’s alright.
She’s a little flat chested/He’s got a teeny weeny wiener,
But s/he’s alright Drink it down, down, down . . .

IF YOU’RE A HASHER AND YOU KNOW IT
(If you’re happy and you know it.)
If you’re a Hasher and you know it, raise your beer!
(raise your glass and all together shout raise your glass)
If you’re a Hasher and you know it, raise your beer!
(raise your glass and all together shout raise your glass)
If you’re a Hasher and you know it,
(slurred)Then your slurring will surely show it.
If you’re a Hasher and you know it, raise your beer!
Drink it down, down, down . . .

THEY OUGHT TO BE PUBLICLY PISSED ON
(My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean)
They ought to be publicly pissed on
They ought to be publicly shot (“Bang-bang!”)
They ought to be tied to a urinal
And left there to fester and rot
Drink it down down down down…

YOU AIN’T NOTHIN’ BUT A HASHER
(You Ain’t Nothin’ But a Houndog)
You ain’t nothin’ but a Hasher,
A-drinkin’ all the time!
You ain’t nothin’ but a Hasher,
A- hashin’ all the time!
You ain’t never caught a hare,
But you still a friend of mine!
They said you could find trail,
Well, that was just a lie!
They said you could find trail,
Well that was just a lie!
You ain’t never caught a hare,
But you still a friend of mine!
Drink it down, down, down!
SILENT SOILERS (Old 100th)
As I was hashing through the wood,
I shat myself, I knew I would,
I cried for help, but no help came.
AND so I shat myself again

THE HARES
OoooH, the Hares of South Lantau,
Are really quite rat-shit now
And the hares of their Dickey-Di-Do hang down to their knees,
And the hares (and the hares) and the hares (and the hares),
And the hares of their Dickey-Di-Do hang down to their knees.
One black one, one white one and one with a piece of shite on,
And one with a fairy light on to show us the way

DOWN DOWN
Balls in a Rat Trap, Squashed Flat!
Down didi down down…down down!

HARE SONG – SWEET BREW ‘O MINE
by Tim (Sweet Caroline)
Beer deda, Beer deda deda, Beer deda daah daah daah

Where it began, I can’t begin to know
But from start it’s going wrong

Was in a spring
And the spring became the shiggy,
Whod’ve believed we’d make it On Home.

Hares, useless hares
Checking back, foxing me, foxing you

Sweet Brew o’ Mine Wo, Wo, Wo
Good times never seemed so good So good, so good
We’re feeling fine Wo, Wo, Wo
Whod’ve believed we ever could

But now I… Look at the trail,
And it don’t seem so shitty
We fill ‘er up with one more brew

And when I thirst,
Sweat runs off my shoulders
How can I thirst when I’m holding you?

Never warm! Blistering Cold!
Reaching out, taking one, taking two

Sweet Brew o’ Mine Wo, Wo, Wo
Good times never seemed so good So good, so good

Sweet Brew o’ Mine Wo, Wo, Wo
Drink it down, down, down, down
Sweeeet Breeew of Miiine!!!
Down didi down down…down down!

OU EST LE PAPIER? (La Marseillaise)

A hashman went to the lavat’ry,
To have him a jolly good shit, shit, shit
He took off vest and his shorts,
So that he could revel in it, it, it.
But when he reached for the paper,
He found that someone had been there before,

Ou est le papier?
Ou est le papier?
Monsieur, monsieur, je fait manure.
Ou est le papier?

YOU’VE LOST THAT HASHING FEELING (You’ve lost that loving feeling)
Dum, di Dum, di dum, dum, dum, dum..
You never close your eyes anymore when you drink your beer
And there’s no urgency to down it like before around here
Your trying hard not to show it ..maybe
But maybe, maybe you damn well know it

You’ve lost that Hashing feeling
Whoaoooa that Hashing feeling
You’ve lost that Hashing feeling
Now it’s gone, gone, gone
Whoaoooaooa

Now there’s no welcome look in your eyes when you reach for beer
Your liver spots are gone and your eyes are clear
It makes us all just feel like crying (maybe)
Cause maybe, it’s time you start buying

You’ve lost that Hashing feeling
Whoaoooa that Hashing feeling
You’ve lost that Hashing feeling
Now it’s gone, gone, gone
Whoaoooaooa

Maybe, maybe, to get down on your knees would be good for you (kneel)
If you would only down one like you used to do,
We’ll have a night, a night you don’t have everyday
So don’t, don’t, don’t let a Hash memory slip away

THE COW KICKED NELLY
OHHHH… the cow kicked Nelly in the belly in the barn
Oh, the cow kicked Nelly in the belly in the barn
Oh, the cow kicked Nelly in the belly in the barn
And the farmer said it would do no harm.
Second verse, same as the first – a little bit louder and a little bit worse…
