HZH3 Hash #142 – “The Mad Dogs and Frenchmen Run” – (briefly) re-Hashed…

Hey Hashers!

It was great to have such a big group of Hashers along for HZH3 Hash #142 starting and finishing at Amigo Bar and Restaurant on Sat, 5 July. It was made even more special as this was our first time hosting a group of visiting Hashers with Creme Brulee and the other 8 Shanghai Drunken Dragons.

The lead Hare was Gasbag, and he was well supported by Just “Sunny” and Just “Jessica” on the day. I think you’ll all agree that Gasbag did a super job of making one of the most interesting Hash trails we’ve done so far!

The leaders of the pack really LOVED those two 180degree turn arounds on the running trail, I’m sure…   😉

It was a hot and sweaty afternoon (and Hangzhou is going to be getting even hotter!) and the pack spread out as the front running bastards got a big lead. Phonebox decided to walk very slowly and carefully down most of the big downhill, which spread the pack out even more. Better safe than sorry though!

Everyone was very happy to get back to Amigo and crack open some cold beers and water bottles after a pretty tough Hash run.

The Circle proceeded well too with Private Parts stepping up and ably leading us with some help from the very experienced Gasbag. Private Parts really set a good example because he had obviously been practicing all the new songs I put in the last HZH3 Newsletter a lot! Well done, Private Parts.

Don’t make the mistake of wearing new shoes to the Hash! Or, at least don’t admit that they are new shoes…  😉  At least now we know that Birkhoff doesn’t swallow!

About 20+ Hashers (including many of the Drunken Dragons) stayed at Amigo Bar for the hearty and delicious Bash dinner. Thanks to Just “Logan” for keeping things on track at Amigo too.

For future reference, for those who worry that Amigo is too expensive, you might consider having one of the Salads which were just 38rmb and VERY big and tasty!!!

 

Lots of photos are up from the HZH3 Hash #142 – “The Mad Dogs and Frenchmen Run” (Sat, 5 Jul 2014)!!! See just a few of them below.

HZH3 Hash #141 – “The (Kinda) Great South-West Run” – (briefly) re-Hashed…

Hey Folks,

On Saturday, 21 June, the Hangzhou Hash ventured to the (kinda) great area south-west of West Lake.

The (Kinda) Great South-West Run started and finished at the Big Tree Tea House (大树茶楼) on SanTaiShan Road near the S-W corner of West Lake.

Hares were Just “Quinn” and Sweet FA. This was Just “Quinn’s” first time as a Hare and also his last Hash in China!

Despite it being a rainy day, we had a good turnout of 17 eager Hangzhou Hashers. We had a few Hash virgins too. Poisoned Apple and I (Sweet FA) manned the home fort on bag watching duties as the Hashers headed off.

Apparently, despite the expert trail setting of the Hares, the pack took a wrong turn and went on the walkers’ trail instead of the runners’ trail. Oh, well. At least the Hash Walkers went the right way!

Obviously, by the time the pack got back from the 6K Hash they were soaked to the bone, but there were still smiles all round! That’s the Hash for you!  🙂

A very good Circle, led by HEIDE, followed the Hash and then a fine Bash ensued. I think everyone was happy with the helpful Big Tree Tea House food and service.

Sadly, this was also the last Hangzhou Hash (as local residents, at least) for Just “Betty” and Tiny Two Peaks (aka Two Small Peaks). All the best on the Hash trails in Suzhou and Shanghai ladies! Make sure you visit us often. We’ll try to visit you in your new locations too.

On! On!

PS. See more a few more photos from Hash #141 in the HZH3 Photo Gallery. Unfortunately, given the rainy conditions, there weren’t many photos taken this time. If you have some others, then please send them to the mismanagement email address. Thanks!

PPS. No, we didn’t have Taiwan Beer on offer for this Hangzhou Hash. We just received a Taiwan Hash report from a couple of absentees, Heavy Junk and Private Parts, who were on holidays following the Nash Hash that was on in XiaMen over the previous weekend. Way to Hash across Asia you guys!
