Hash #996 was held on the 2nd September 2017 at Grey Bar, Vincennes, St. David – with “Bird” being the hare for the day.
Hashmaster’s Report: Hash #996
Vincennes. Once you hear that name associated with a hash, two things come to mind – mud and hills. Well, that happens with most hashes, but particularly in the case of Vincennes. And this hash delivered both, though luckily for us we’ve been going through just a bit of a dry spell, so there was not as much mud as there could have been. But that didn’t stop quite a few hashers taking advantage of what mud there was – or was it the other way around?
While Sherri Roopchand Wholesaleyachtparts and others showed off some amazing gymnastics, it was returning hasher Kishon Brathwaite that took the prize, with the full legs-in-the-air backward cartwheel down the last muddy section, ingeniously using his head as a brake, and thereby earning himself the hash name of “Skid Mark” in the process. Well done Kishon, er, Skid Mark!
Ok, let’s talk about hash-cake. You know like ordinary cake, except no baking is involved and the extra ingredient of one hasher is added? The type of cake that was declared banned a few months ago? Well, it was Girl Guide’s birthday, and some hashers who would go un-named (right, Rockelle Jeremiah and Karim K Chitterman? 😊 ) begged and pleaded with me to allow it just one more time. So, I finally gave in.
I didn’t expect them to use the WHOLE bag of flour! Sorry Girl Guide! Lucky thing that there was a river nearby to wash off!
So hash-cake is now back on the ban list.
All in all, a pretty good hash. Well done “Birds”.
Next week we’re in Tempe.
