Hashing: Discover amazing trails around Saigon
Our next Run 1559 Sore Arse Is Back
Day: Sunday Date: 19/07/2020
This run is packed with everything: good running, much of it on scenic single trails, forests with plenty of shade, some open air fields and even some shiggy at everyone’s favourite location, Dong Nai. The area is very wet at this time of year, but the HAREs Sore Arse and Shitouse have managed to find dry trails around and through the swamps. About half of the trail is in an area, where the HASHERS have never been before (full credit for that to Sore Arse).
What more could a HASHER ask for?
Make sure you are at the Caravelle before 2 pm (14h00) or you will find that the bus has already left. There will be a D2 pickup from two bus stops along the south side of the Hanoi Highway, one opposite the Thao Dien Rd. and the other in front of Estella Heights. Bus arrives there at about 2.15 pm so aim to be there before 2:10 pm (14:10).
Also note our upcoming runs:

News from your GM
Well last Sunday saw another great run and some fantastic food at the run site afterwards. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who contributed. A multicultural aspect was included with orange shirts to pay homage to William of Orange, 'proper' whisky to pay homage to the Irish battleground, and French wine, brie and pate to celebrate Bastille Day. We were even given a history lesson in the circle, Education on the Hash whatever next! Its almost as if the GM was a teacher. Thank you to the hares; the experienced Paddy Fag, the virgin Wanker Banker and the other one. For a full report on the shenanigans please see below
I Choked Linda Lovelace is hoping to depart these shores on the 1st of August, Turkish Airlines permitting. He will be a co-hare on Saturday 25th of July and has invited hashers to join him at Sky 9 bar in Thao Dien after the run for and extended On On. There is also a dance floor for those hashers who are that way inclined.
The 30th Birthday run is fast approaching (22-23 August) so please remember to save the date. The schedule has yet to be finalised, in true mismanagement style, however the basic outline is as follows. On Saturday afternoon the bus will pick hashers up from the Caravelle and D2 and take us to Dong Nai for an amazing trail set by Turn Off and Shithouse. On Saturday evening the celebration will continue at a secret location. On Sunday there will be a recovery run set by Fukcoffee and Sexy Eyes, with hashers making their own way to the start point followed by an On On at a restaurant at the run site. For those needing more than 2 runs per weekend the Monday Hash is always very pleased to welcome Sunday Hashers and we are trying to get the Harriettes to decide they 'can be bothered' to do a run on the Friday. We are considering a birthday T shirt but will need a design. If you have any ideas please forward them to to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Saigon Hash Hump
All current, past and future Hashers and their guests are welcome to the Hash Hump. There are two of these amazing events to attend every week:
The Hump is a Saigon Hash event, designed to break the long period between Hash runs. There are no rules, so you can call Hashers by their name or Hash handle, drink with your left hand or right hand, stand or sit in a circle, semi-circle, ellipse or square and no need to sit on ice if you arrive after the started start time. In short, the Hump will be easy and relaxed and everybody is welcome.

Last week's Run Report
Run 1558 – The William of Orange and Bastille Run.
Location: Binh Duong
Running Hares: Wanker Banker and Paddy Fag Walking Hare: Sexy Eyes
Run Report: Broken Seal
Broken Seal said the run was in a much loved area with too much razer wire and pavement, but nice scenery and gave it a score of -8.
Walk Report: Happy Flasher
Happy Flasher reported the walk to be nice with lots of dogs and beautiful scenery. She got wet and was disappointed by the lack of beer stop, but there was a whiskey stop instead, so there was no beer and she didn’t get any whiskey either. No wonder she gave it a score of -9.
This gives the run a score of -8.5 (according to Sore Arse’s non mathematical calculation)
Virgins, Visitors and Returnees.
Paddy Fag welcomed the virgin, Mark from Scotland, who was sent by Cock a Leaky, Where the fuck was Cock a Leaky? Julia from HCMC was made to come by her sister; Thao, also from HCMC who was influenced by the Spam Cham to come to the HASH; Lam and Anh, both from HCMC, were made to come by their friends and Duc from HCMC came with his sister.
Paddy Fag taught these virgins the rituals of the HASH
The returnees were Big C who was on a flying visit from Hanoi; Apendadicktome and Room Service returned after being on holiday; Thomas claimed he was overloaded with too much work, preventing him from coming.
Paddy Fag charged the Americans and the French in celebration of the William of Orange day, a Dutch King and Bastille day, which the French celebrate.
Paddy fag then thanked and honoured the French for bringing lots of wine to keep the HASHERS happy and watered.
Fukcoffee charged the French because the former prime minister, who was under the rule of Nicolas Sarkozy, is being charged €1 million for embezzlement with his wife, whilst in power. A BIG mistake!
Shit House awarded Wanker Banker for her virgin HARE set and presented her with a T-shirt.
Paddy Fag charged Wanker Banker and the Americans claiming the Americans to be dumb, but travelling on a bike with Paddy Fag to lay the trail with paper is even dumber.
Sexy Eyes brought in Allo Wettie, Wanker Banker, Easy In Easy Out, In and Out and Down Easy to present them with there named necklaces, so no one forgets who they are.
Turn Off charged Pedia Prick for managing to trip up on the flattest trail, the HASH hash ever had.
Fukcoffee needed to hav his say and charged Paddy Fag for making the bus leave 1 minute late, wearing a face mask and black shades, looking like a terroist and offering to pay for a HASHER’s second run, when it’s FREE – fool! And there’s more, Paddy Fag laid the paper in hidden areas, making it harder for HASHERs to find until Mark pulled it out in full view.
Fukcoffee then charged I Choked Linda Lovelace for collecting money on the bus for selling T-shirts, nearly giving someone 800,000 vnd and saying he shouldn’t be doing this. Don’t do it then!
Shit House also charged Sloe Gin for shouting ‘Rocky!’ (her dog) instead of ‘On On’ when finding paper. Have the rules been changed?
Sore Arse charged the HASH dogs, Little Fucker, Rocky and Mulberry, for frolicking and aimlessly running about, almost knocking a stool over and Sore Arse nearly lost her drink! Only Crazy Bitch sat there watching and displaying Doggy Manners. Their owners, For Rent and Fukcoffee were given down downs for this and it turns out that Sexy Eyes, our GM is the only HASHER who can control the behaviour of her dogs, no matter what breed.
Paddy Fag, as if he doesn’t say enough already, charged the Germans, Geordies and Thomas. What did they do now?
Talk Euro Trash! Precision Tool was eliminated for being a German, so Sore Arse, the Geordie who no one understands, and Thomas the French man spoke German to each other in German and and abused the mother tongue of Precision Tool.
Fukcoffee (also in love with the sound of his own voice) charged Paddy Fag for confusing the Becamex Hotel with Becamex Hospital, when giving instructions.
Paddy Fag charged the Scottish, Dutch, English and French. Apparently in 1619, the Scots fought the Dutch Prince, while the Dutch were too busy fighting the English. The French then backed the Scots against the Dutch forcing the Irish to suffer the pain.
