Hashing: Discover amazing trails around Saigon
Our next run #1548 has been postponed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic
Despite the anarchic nature of the Hash and its members occasionally conformity is required. Our Vietnamese members and their government are working hard to contain the Covid-19 virus and protect the elderly and ill within their community who are most at risk. For the expats among us, it is incumbent upon us to respect the wishes of our hosts and support them in their efforts. It is difficult to gauge when the Hash should restart but the school system can be viewed as a good guide, particularly as most Hashers have a childlike mentality. Last week the Hash ran as the schools were due to partially reopen on the Monday, this was changed at 7:30 pm on Sunday. The recent outbreak has made it highly probable that the schools will not reopen as scheduled on Monday. The bus crew have also indicated that the bus will be unavailable. It has therefore been decided that the St Patrick's Day Hash on Sunday 15th of March will be cancelled.
News from your GM
So the regime change has taken effect, the old committee have been booted out and replaced by the brand new, in no way similar, committee and the women took over the Hash on Women's Day. For anyone who missed this unfolding drama, the AGPU was a roaring success, brilliantly organised by the then GM now hair raiser Fukcoffee. The food was devoured, the beer was quaffed and the night was danced away. In fact so much fun was had by some Hashers that they failed to make it to the run the next day.
What a run it was, set by hares who all were, or had been, GMs of the Saigon Hash. It was certainly good enough to get anyone hot and sweaty. So thank you to Fukcoffee, I Chocked Linda Lovelace and the other one, whoever that was.
We are certainly living in interesting times, with Covid-9 spreading across the world almost as fast as the fear and panic buying. The future is uncertain and that can be frightening, but life is for living and trails are for following so in true Hash style lets head out into the unknown with a cry of ON ON.
The Hash Hump Whatsapp group has been commandeered to to convey news about the Hump and the Hash quickly. We will now use it for instant communication on all Hash matters. Information about any changes to the run schedule will be communicated via the Saigon Hashers website, Whatsapp, Facebook, and email. We will take it run by run and hope that we can soon be back out Hashing through the countryside.
Until next time, stay sane, grab your soap and wash your hands :).

Last week's Run Report
Run 1547 The Women’s Day Run
Date: Sunday 8th March 2020
Location: Damned if I know
The very next day after the lively AGPU several stalwarts gathered to try out the new committee and to see if they were in any way competent. Hares were outgoing GM Fucoffee; outgoing Haberdasher I Choked Linda Lovelace and outgoing Hashscribe Sexy Eyes. So they told us about the run and went out of the circle. Then the outgoing committee was called in and thanked and sent out of the circle. The incoming committee was called in and welcomed and they went out. It was like watching a game of cricket.
The new committee consists of: GM Sexy Eyes; RA PaddyFag and Broken Seal; Hashcash remains Shit House and Haberdasher is ICLL; Songmeisterin is Runny Yolk ( who may also be Deputy GM); Fucoffee returns as Hare Razor; BankerWanker is Committee Member; Hashflashes are Rockbottom and Happy Flasher. Hashstats and Hashmaps are possibly Broken Seal and Gobbler is Hashscribe,
Bonnie described the walk; she appreciated the views but was unable to take any photos. Nevertheless she gave a very generous +2; Chi Chi Madeira moaned about the heat and the dust but he did appreciate the shade in the woods and he loved the papayas (more about this later) He awarded -5 making the total for this week a creditable -3.
RA invited the Virgins but there were none to be seen, only three returners. Just Add Beer just ‘ad enough and could not be arsed to get here; Chi Chi Madeira was avoiding the Hash like the Plague; and Trang was doing something unrepeatable.
All Vietnamese hashers were called in because after the government's careful control of the Covid19 situation with 6 weeks of school and University closures; the massive losses in business and tourism and the superb management of 16 recovered patients, Patient Zero swans in from Italy via France and UK and didn’t tell anyone she was poorly! However, after the Vietnamese Hashers showed us all how to wash our hands properly we were all put at ease and felt very reassured.
For Rent, Sloe Gin, WankerBanker, Trang- The Papaya Purchasers- That was the charge. They stopped to shop on the Hash. But Chi Chi Madeira opened a can of worms and spread utter confusion with his reference to men buying papaya because in Cuba papaya refers to Rose or Butterfly but what he meant to say was Pussy and then he went on about Chi chi being Pussy and Madeira is Wooden and I lost the plot…..
Fucoffee charged Gobbler for failing to get a leg over but then with one leg hooked in the air, Gobbler had to call on Jimmy Carter ( That should be a Hash Name) for a hand. He was charged with lack of chivalry.
Fucoffee had another charge. The bus got lost on the way to the Hash because the driver listened to a WOMAN and not a Hare but since the Driver is not allowed to drink Drive me Nuts stood in and took one for the team.
Fucoffee (on a roll) charged his own Father for being involved in a road accident with a motorcyclist in which his car was written off. Not dented, not smashed but written off and do you know how many years no claims bonus he has lost and what this is going to do to his insurance premiums and not a care in the world for the poor motorcyclist who had to be hospitalised. ICLL was called in as a Daddyfucoffee lookalike.
Runny Yolk charged Fucoffee and made him sit on the ice for no reason other than she can.
Runny Yolk charged Teresa because she went to the toilet and had to fight a bear. ( I swear that’s what I heard.)
ICLL charged Runny Yolk for making him and Fucoffee listen to 2 hours worth of U2’s Greatest Hitswhilst setting the trail. Apparently the same CD has been in Fucoffee’s car for two years after Runny Yolk inserted it.
We drank some more beer and then went home. Or to the On On - in District 3.
That's all for this week.
Gobbler signing off.
