Next Run: 15:00 5th March DB
A run for everyone – a good run, cold blonde beer, beach, babes….
Hares: Parky & Park’nShop
From Mui Wo – take 1:45 kaido to DB – what could be simpler?
BTW – I’ll need a few helpers to lighten the beer load in the big cooler…either by consumption or as porters!
You know a run was too easy when one of those goddam FRBs (front running bastards) makes it to the end point before you even have time to drive the car down the hill, park, and get out the cooler. That said, when it is 35’C, perhaps the hounds should be grateful that the hares were so kind and merciful, with a short, easy, mostly downhill run from Nam Shan into Mui Wo.
Those who thought it a bit too boring/unchallenging found themselves challenged in the circle, when Slog presented all present with hymn sheets, and led us in a rousing chorus of hash songs. Parkie in particular regaled the crowd with stories of immaculate conceptions as he welcomed back his son, now based in Burma. There were a few new shoes and some virgins, as well as some christenings.
Long-time hasher and all around trail expert, Ah Duk, was given his own SLH3 name, Toilet Duck
One of the Tung Chung bella damas (who later revealed she is severely allergic to gluten) also got flour on her head, taking the name Bunga Bunga. And this chap whose name I cannot remember revealed that he recently moved out of DB, and was promptly named Sextradited.
Next run promises to be much harder, with Anal Invitation setting a run in DB and promising revenge for SLH3 setting such a wimpy run. See details above and ON ON in September.
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
Run 20 – July 11th, 2015
Location – Tung Chung
Hares – Uzzi, Silencio and PeePee
The Unofficial but Totally Real Italian Mafia of Tung Chung organised a Black Hash run, and perhaps with a hint of true Sicilian sadism, they told the unwitting hashers that if they don’t wear black, they gonna fixa your face, okay, tough guy?
Wear black…….. in 35’C at 3pm in the afternoon in July with 100% humidity. Sheesh! Gimme a break!
Taking the runners scrambling across the rocks and through the old fishing village, this A to B run was thankfully pretty flat, and ended up by New Tung Chung Hang where a group of young basketballers were not impressed by our presence on the court, drinking beer and eating pasta. But they didn’t dare come up against the Mafia, what with their mustaches, machine guns, and shots of limoncello.
The virgins had a nice first run which was not too hard, and SLH3 also said a sad farewell to Legally Blond who is moving with her soon-to-be-husband to the UK. We wish them all the best and happy trails at their future hash.
Run 19 – May 23rd, 2015
Location – Mui Wo
Hares – Chinese Laundry and Dr. Lap Sap
Forget about who let the dogs out….. who the hell authorised all this rain? Starting in Mui Wo near the 5 Cent bridge in a a Red Rainstorm warning, a good pack of dedicated hashers waded to Tai Tei Tong, Pak Ngan Heung, the Silvermine waterfall, up past the old school and back to WangTong. The hares had all their hard work washed away after setting the trail but nonetheless managed to set it again before the troops arrived. Everyone was well wet in the deluge!
This run was also raising funds for the Nepal earthquake relief efforts, and joining in with a local group raising funds who provided some yummy food. Because of the rain, not so many four-legged friends braved the rain on this ‘dog run’, but still it was On On and On Woof for a good cause.
RUN 18 – March 7th, 2015
LOCATION: Tong Fuk
Giant pineapples, garish trolls, and tiny temples were all part of yesterday’s trail set by Slog in Tong Fuk. The lone hare bravely opened his house and home to the hordes of hashers who came out of the woodwork when they heard there was a fancy BBQ being held after the run. It was a good turnout with about 20 people, including the Tung Chung Mafia, one or two virgins, a visiting barrister, and three little half pints who made it up the hill past the cemetery and onto the catchment. It was a great trail, and several intending Wimps did the Rambo and enjoyed it without even realising it. Some FCBs missed the finish turnoff and were on-on for a 2nd lap for 1km before they suffered enough deja-vu and decided to turn around.
