Having two days of celebrations for the 800th run in Grenada seemed to go well.
With the Treasure Hunt on Friday creating lots of fun, frustration, disappointment and yes great joy. We even managed lots of mud on Hog Island.
Yesterday at La Force in the parish of St. Andrews we had lots of fun by the Balthazar river at Mellow's river tubing.
The owner Crispin looked after us with great enthusiasm and together with GH3 allowed those who wanted to try out the river tubing.
The ones who did had a great time but I did see a few who could not stop and were heading off to Barbados. The area is very beautiful indeed and perfect hashing country with many good trails.
Thanks to "Grandad" and his team for a job well done.
Back at base we had the admin team working overtime. "Dominatrix" in charge of signing everyone in and out and "Asphalt Empress" selling the 800th shirts.
Now sometimes we catch people coming off the trails with a mango or two and of course we frown on any fruit being taken. So imagine our shock to find Chermaine St Clair coming back in with not a grain, not even a hand but a whole bunch of Green Fig!!!!
very deservedly getting hash shit of the week and yes we gave you a name but on reflection we might have to change from "Green Wood".
I did get a few reports of one person banging their head on the trail yesterday but I believe he is now OK.
I did take some grief from one person for not having my phone with me on the trail. I'm very sorry about this however this person still wanted to give me a hash punishment.
In the end it was in fact she who got the down down and a hash name.
Finally got you Odette or should I say " Head Banger" .
Mika Tnek Tniassuot was the very lucky winner on Friday of a hash treasure.
Unfortunately that was the only prize we did not have as it was going to be presented by "Joy Boy".
Unfortunately he could not make it so yesterday I met with John ON Saturday morning and was able then to read out his letter of authenticity and then handed over a sock that had done 5 hashes at the 1998 Kuala Lumpar 60th anniversary of the founding of the hash movement. It was pointed out that it had never been washed and had sat outside since that time.
The sock was handed over to " Old Sock"!!!
Seeing all the happy faces makes it all worth while and then to cap a great weekend we had a visit from the Prime Minister himself.
This Saturday we have no hash but we do have a hash on Thursday 31st October for Halloween. We are at the Ole Skool Pub off the airport rd near to the Beach House. Full details as soon as I have them. Our hare is the ghost himself " Knee Jerker".
Time to rest. Have a great week. ON ON
