Hash # 980 (Chocolate Hash) was held on 13th May 2017 at the Diamond Chocolate Factory, St Mark, Victoria. Being right at the end of the varsity season, 3 large busloads of SGU students arrived bringing our number of virgins for the hash up to 81 (never mind the 197 runners and numerous walkers) – it was quite a turnout.
The hare for the day “Pink Panther” set two trails – a runners and walkers. The runners was good, with a lot of climbing for the first half, running in the second half and one long river section that was “accidentally” missed by a few. The walkers trail seemed to pass the runners going the opposite way, just to confuse those of us that did not expect that to happen and it seemed everyone enjoyed the trails and we did eventually get everyone back.
There was good food, chocolate cupcakes, brownies and cake and discounted chocolate bought directly from the factory.
The music and bar was enjoyed but Stag got sold out early – we will have to blame those 81 virgins. The de-virginisation ceremony was HUGE and possibly a crate of beer was used.
Doggy Style and Sabine Lentz were wished Happy Birthday in true hash style. The ceremony was held by “Commando” as our hash mater “Grab de Pussy” was very busy doing “something” important!. There was a raffle draw after the hash and many, many slabs of chocolate, chocolate cupcakes and prizes were handed out to hashers.
Thank-you “Pink Panther” and the Diamond Chocolate Factory for a wonderful hash, it was enjoyed by all!
