Zhejiang Anji Hash Weekend November 15-16 (Sat-Sun)!!! – by the Suzhou Hash

Hey there Hangzhou Hashers and Friends,

We have excellent news from our Hash friends in Suzhou… They are planning a weekend Hashing road trip to Zhejiang Province (that’s our province, in case you didn’t know…) in mid-November (Sat-Sun, 15-16 Nov) and we’ve been invited to join the fun!

The location is in beautiful Anji, you know… where the bamboo forest scenes for the movie “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” were filmed. Ahhhh… the tranquility…

Anji Baidu Map: http://j.map.baidu.com/CB5Xx
Anji Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/CDNzE

 

Anji is not very far away from Hangzhou to the N-W and will take about 70 minutes by bus from the Hangzhou North Bus Station or a bit longer from the HuangLong (Yellow Dragon) Tourist Bus Station. We Hangzhouvians can catch a bus together.

If you will go or might go, then please fill out the Doodle bus time voting form and send us an email, so we can coordinate the Hangzhou side of things.

NOTE: I’m choosing Sat 8am and Sun 4pm with the aim to have a few extra hours to look around Anji, but I’ll go with what the crowd thinks. FYI, the Suzhou Hashers arrive at about 1pm on Sat and will leave at 2pm right after lunch on Sun.

HZH3 Email address:  mismanagement [AT] hangzhou-hhh [DOT] org

HZH3 going to Anji Doodle form:  http://doodle.com/w9ewriye7pvucsmb

 

During the weekend there will be a Saturday afternoon Hash (2pm start) and a Sunday morning Hash (10am start).

Cost: 160rmb (includes Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch, beer, snacks, and swag! 

What’s your T-shirt size? 

Accommodation and transportation NOT included, these will be paid separately)

If you can decide by about 1 Nov, then “I Luv Blowjobs” (ILBJ) from the Suzhou Hash can help you book accommodation. See below. (suzhouh3 [AT] gmail [DOT] com)

There are many other hotels nearby too, so don’t think that you’ll be outside sleeping with the pandas if you have to wait a bit longer to decide.

See other details below.

On! On!

HZH3 Hash #150 – “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run” – Sat, 25 October, 1.00pm (!)

Hello again HZH3 Hashers and those who want to be,

Whether you’re a runner 跑步者, a jogger 慢跑者 or a walker 走步/爬山者, come along and hit the country roads and tea field trails while chasing the ‘hares’ through the forests and over the hills around Hangzhou with us. 欢迎大家!

The Hares for Hash #150 are Sweet FA, Gasbag and Sheep Shagger and ??? (+ 1 more Hare needed!!!).

Don’t forget that Fri, 31 Oct is Halloween! So, wearing Halloween costumes on this Hash is encouraged. If you don’t wear a costume, you can expect an extra Down Down! (Obviously, if you do wear a costume, then you’re going to get an extra Down Down too!)   ;)

记得周五10月31日就是万圣节,所以参加这次Hash不穿万圣节衣服的人们一定会多一次干杯!  (显而易见,穿万圣节衣服的人们也当然都要喝多一次干杯! 哈哈.)

The Hares promise you runners’ and walkers’ trails featuring fantastic, never before seen sights for HZH3 Hash #150. There will be scenic hills and forests, of course, but also tea fields, lakes, lookouts, and cultural sites and other stuff you’d expect on a SCENIC HANGZHOU WEST HILLS FOREST PARK RUN.

This time there will be 3 Hash choices. There will be a long walk, a long run and a Ballbuster run. 这次有三个选择 – 长意漫步, 长跑 和 特长跑。

Hash 150 - Scenery 2 Hash 150 - Scenery 3

Here are the details of HZH3 Hash #150 “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run”:

You can expect HZH3 Hash runs roughly (or sometimes VERY roughly… if the hares had a big night out on the night before…) every other Saturday (i.e. fortnightly) and both runners’ and walkers’ trails will usually be set.

It’s fun, it’s social, it’s healthy (mostly…), so come along and be a part of it!!!

HZH3 Hash #149 – “The Who Let The Animals Out Run” – Re-HASHED

HZH3 Hash #149 – “The Who Let The Animals Out Run” – Sat, 11 October, 2.30pm – Starting at the Hangzhou Osmanthus Tea Garden

Hares for Hash #149 were Small Cups and Sweet FA. Small Cups has just recently moved to Hangzhou (to study French) from Xiamen. She helped set a course for the Xiamen Nash Hash earlier this year. It’s great to see her jump straight in to Hare duties here in Hangzhou too!

Unfortunately, Sat, 11 Oct, was a working day for most people, but 8 of us still made it out to the ManJueLong area for a great Hash. We had 2 visitors from Shanghai, Double Nipple Impact and Forest Dump. We also had 3 Hash Virgins (Just “Clara”, Just “Catherine” and Just “Iker”) – well done to each of you! Finally, it was great to see Just “Julian” along for his 2nd Hash with us. In fact, Just “Julian” got started early by walking all the way to the Hash start location from near the ZheDa YuQuan Campus!!!

The Hares set an amazing Hash trail (of course!) that included forest tracks, twisting hill side paths, mountain top lookouts, dark and spooky caves, a scenic beer check and tea field mazes. While we were setting the trail, I don’t know what happened, but near the end, Small Cups got lost when we separated to do separate parts of the runners’ and walkers’ trails… I didn’t have any mobile phone signal (damn you China Unicom!!!!), so I couldn’t contact her.  Later, in the Circle, I don’t know whether she or I should have been given a Down Down…. but, I gave it to her.  😉  Anyway, I went ahead to meet the Hashers who had been waiting patiently at the start point for the Hares who were running a minute or two (or 30…) late. Luckily, Small Cups arrived just a few minutes later. By now it was already about 3pm…

After some quick pre-Hash instructions for the Hash Virgins. The 5 Hash walkers headed up the hill straight away though Lower ManJueLong Village then on through the twisty forest trail up South Peak while the Hash runners (the experienced SH pair and I) did another loop before joining the same trail. We caught up with the Hash walkers at the top of South Peak. After that we all headed down to WengJia Village to the beer check.

After a refreshing 15 minute break, with the clouds looking quite grey, the runners headed off first. We first descended to another cave and then climbed up above ManJueLong Village again to enter the tea field maze. The runners had extra bonus tea field maze and they had some fun looking for flour spots on the ground between the overgrown tea bushes. The walkers had a simpler route through this section.

A little bit of very light rain started falling in the last 10 minutes of the run and the walkers finished about 15 or 20 minutes later but didn’t get wet either. We ordered some beers and had a very basic Circle led by me and with lots of help from the other experienced Hashers (Thanks guys and girls!).  Four of us stayed around for a tasty, but over-priced Bash dinner (we’ll try a different farmer restaurant next time – I’m sure we’ll head back to this great Hashing area in a few month’s time).

See some of the action in the photos below.

Hangzhou Hash #148 – “The September Shanghai Surprise Run” – Re-HASHED

Hares for Hash #148 on 27 Sep 2014 were Creme Brulee, Obama and KFC (special guest Hares from Shanghai) and they set a fantastic tea fields, hills and forests trail in the MaoJiaBu and China Tea Museum areas.

We had lots of visiting Hashers from Shanghai and Suzhou along for this Hash. It was easily our biggest Hangzhou Hash ever (in the current era, anyway…). We probably had 65 – 70 Hashers!!!

The Hares had us shiggying through wild forests and scrambling up steep rocky slopes. They also crossed the runners trail and half the runners got lost for 30 minutes… Penalty Down Downs were awarded.

But, that’s what can happen when you get the Hares very drunk very late into the night before the Hash.  🙂

After a super fun Hash, we had a great Circle with lots of Down Downs and shenanigans. That was followed by a fine feast at the ShiWeiXian Tea Farmer’s Restaurant on MeiLing North Road.

See some of the action in the photos below.
