Hash Trash #557 & #558 - Christmas Cheer

Sorry I have been lax at getting the Hash Trash up for the Despedida and Xmas hashes. After getting home on Sunday from the Xmas Hash, I was without Internet Access until late on Tuesday, which was then followed with a Power Cut on Wednesday from 3am until 11pm last night - Air Conditioners obviously overload the grid, so apologies.

Well, it's been an eventful, and floury time. Friday the 9th saw the Hash out in full in San Telmo for the Despedida hash for Ivor the Engine and Beautiful Bristols. Breoghans Bar hosted the night, with the theme being canary yellow, and the run kicked off around the streets of San Telmo, with far too many Beer Stops, and also some confusion as we neared Plaza de Mayo and Casa Rosada, as the trail appeared to go past the security barriers being erected for the inauguration of the President the following day. But a helpful policeman pointed us in the other direction, and off we went to find the beer!

The run itself was relatively short, measured at around 6Km, with a great ratio of beer to Kms, and before we knew it we were back at the Bar, and an Indoor Circle in the Back Room, hosted by the Chicken Canary, Ivor! New shoes were spotted, and drunk from, down downs for race shirts, and an ode to our departing GM family was penned and read out by Mr Mum. We were introduced to our new Incoming GM, Footsie, and this joint BA Hash, and the First ever Gran Canaria Hash, (we had to humour Ivor!), was brought to a conclusion so that the Pizza's could be served, and ample beer poured down our necks. A great night, but not quite the end of Ivor and BB's......

And so, we moved to the Xmas Hash, and number 558, hosted by the New GM Footsie, and Party Pants, and a great crowd gathered for the run. All I can say about the run itself, (I walked!), was that the Beer Stops were noticeable by their absence, and the weather was superb for the day, with the sun cracking the flags, thanks to the hard work of the RA in ensuring this.... We did have two firsts today, with a Roller Blading Hasher, and a backwards ran Hash, with Just Michael, from Kilkenny, arriving a little late, and locating the trail, but in reverse, and so commenced to run the entire hash from Finish to Start!

A presentation was made to Suck a Duck, who was reaching the incredible Milestone of her 300th Hash here in BsAs, only the second Hasher to achieve that here, and she still looks so young! (Ed's note - Creep!).

The real fun (well, fun to those watching at least!) came in the circle. Many down downs were inflicted upon the pack, with many visitors, first timers, and the Irish out in force, and finally we came down to naming of two Hashers. Just Jacqueline, in her tenth, and last for the time being at least, Hash here in BsAs, due to her return to the UK, was named as Jack It Off, followed by Just Howard, who, being a Nottingham Forrest fan, and liking a drink (well, he is a Hasher!), was named as Forrest Drunk! Whilst the trail may have seen sparse flour, we now realised why, as Doon Doon and Footsie managed to locate the National stockpile for Forrest, saving some for the finale of the Circle......

Despite having the Despedida Hash the previous week, they still hadn't left!, so we took the opportunity of calling Ivor and Beautiful Bristols to the centre of the circle, where they were presented with gifts from the Hash to commemorate their years of service, and beer drinking, to the Hash, along with Hand of God receiving his 100th Hash Mug - Not bad for a 6 year old! A great future ahead for him!

As for Ivor and BB - The flour that was left over (around 3 kilo's I believe) was duly administered to the pair of them, and they certainly enjoyed a White Christmas. It was quite an emotional day for all concerned, and as the author of these Hash Trashes (not sure if anyone actually reads them), I would like to express my own best wishes for the First Hash Family on their departure to pastures new off the coast of Africa, and the Islas Canarias, and hope that in time to come, we will cross shiggy again, maybe in that Gran Canaria Hash they will no doubt have up and running by the end of January!

On On - And a very Happy Christmas to one and all, and we look forward to seeing you on New Years day for Hash Number 559, with full details available after you have enjoyed your Christmas Pudding this weekend.

Hash Trash #556 - Avellaneda in the sun

Sunday morning broke with the sun cracking the flags when the Host Hare, Yours truly!, left the starting point at 8 am to start laying trail. It was already a hot day, and clearly, once again, the RA had come through on his promise of a beautiful day. After laying the first part of the trail, Pussy Galore arrived to assist with the rest of the laying of flour, having popped out to get some beer, along with out Chef Hare, Tongue y Lingus, owing to the unfortunate situation resulting in no Beer Drays available on the day. There was an early problem, with a power outage meaning that Ice had to be bought to keep the beer cold, but Hashers are always able to get around any problem that arises.

Hashers gathered, with most arriving on time, but Just Howard was having problems with his GPS, and frantic telephone calls were being made as TyL tried to talk him in. For some reason he was finding Autopistas where autopistas shouldn't be, but after the Hare Talk was extended to explain to our virgins and visitors the markings, finally Just H arrived, and the Hash was off and running - Well, walking if the truth be known at this point!

Pussy Galore had lost her map, and despite questions before we set off, nobody owned up, until at the first check point - Open Cola was seen to be checking a piece of paper - The first hash Crime of the day emerged, and PG was reunited with her guide to where we going!

A couple of early checks kept people together(ish), and the first kilometre or so was uneventful, although the FRB's need to remember to make the checks when they locate the right trail, as the walkers were delayed with some false trails after the runners had scooted off.

A trip around El Tano Parilla to allow the enjoyment of the smell of asado roasting away, and crossing Belgrano by the fountains, led the pack to the Exercise Bars. Sadly no pictures were taken here, but climbing frames, balance beams, and parallel bars were negotiated by the Pack, with the Hares in close attention to ensure compliance with the trail, as the arrows were directly over the exercise equipment. Once successfully through this part, a short straght run saw the welcome sight of the first Beer Stop, and shade was enjoyed alongside the murals along the road.

After suitable replenishment, the pack were off, carefully crossing the road, and heading towards Sarandi Station. now, if the wise had been aware, a quick jump on the train to the next station would have saved a lot of running, but the pack were heads down and away, led by Qualified Semen, with Two Secs, Fill My Hole, Open Cola and his better half, El Diablo in hot pursuit, along with Just Claudia (getting close to being named now!), Just Jim, Viagra Spices on a welcome return visit from New York, and visiting unnamed Hasher, Just Rachel from Wisconsin, and two welcome returnees, last seen at the Hash in Colonia earlier this year, Patricia and Edwardo (I hope I have that right!), and Just Sebastian and Just Samuel also in that leading bunch - A very Healthy macho Pack.

The Macho/Wimp split took the Front Pack down a side ginnel (Ed's note - North of England word for alley!), and back onto Mitre. Here the Hare apologises for making a long straight run in the sun, but eventually, the pack arrived at the parque in Villa Dominico, and a circumnavigation took place, running passed the Bird Market, and a few parilla's cooking away at Sunday Lunch.

Meanwhile the Wimps were strolling in the sun, with Fossil Fuck running back and forward to check on the whereabouts of Just Howard and Family, who were bringing up the rear (and short-cutting!), and looking forward to the Second promised Beer Stop.

The Welcomed Beer Stop was upon us, and the walkers and Front Runners arrived simultaneously, and enjoyed teh refreshment, before setting off for the final short On In. However, after waiting a few more minutes, there was no sign of a number of Hashers who had been Front Running, so The Mobile Beer Stop set off to try and locate the missing Hashers - A few blocks away, the clan was gathered, and an inpromtu Beer Stop was had, but still Mr Mom was missing... Driving back to base, he was spotted waving at a tree!, and another Hash Crime was to be reported.

Thankfully, everyone made it back to the house, and a quick dash to buy more beer, and thankfully the electricity had been restored, and the circle went up to the roof garden, where the sun was beating down, and a special dispensation was given to allow for caps to stay on heads in the circle, mainly to protect the follically challenged amongst us! Many crimes were reported, with Fossil Fuck denying everything, even when he was down-downed for reaching Hash Number 69!

Roger the Cabin Boy sipped his way to the longest Down Down ever seen, Viagra Spices donated a hash Shirt from Brooklyn to Open Colas Better half, and thanks to the generosity of Edwardo and Patricia, we had some Quilmes Mugs to give away to worthy hashers.

Two very later arrivals were suitably punished, turning up at 10 to 2!, Just Delfina, and a virgin Just Josefina, who's excuse had been running the Lan 10K that morning - but fair play to them for coming along - They must have heard about the cooking, and once the circle concluded, it was downstairs and Chef Tongue y Lingus had prepared a wonderful concoction of Chorizo cooked in a Portuguesa Salsa - (Chori All the Way especially liked this!). It must have been enjoyed, because although there was plenty to go around, and many seconds were had, by the end of the hash there was none left - and compliments to the chef were ringing out.

The photographs from this hash are linked from the earlier post, and hopefully everyone had a great time south of the city in Avellaneda, and everyone got home safely. See you all at the next hash, the Special Despedida for our GM and Family as they prepare to part these shores for adventure in the Canaries! (They would have enjoyed the Parque today, as there were lots of canaries singing to be sold in the market!). Full details for this will be published ASAP - The date for your diary is this Friday coming - December 9th! In the San Telmo area.... More to follow........

Next Hash #556 Sunday December 4th 2011

Yes, December is on us already, and the year is drawing to its end. After the excitement of Hash Number 555 in Carilo, it's back to closer to home, and this week, the RA and Tongue y Lingus will be hosting the Hash from their place in Avellaneda. Before you all start getting your maps and Guia T's out - it's really easy to get to, and those that came last year to the bash across the river, know that they can look forward to decent run, and wonderful food from Chef Tonguey!

So here are the details:

Sunday 4th December 2011 11:00am for 11:30....

Hares: Inspect her Assets, Tongue y Lingus and Pussy Galore

Location: Solier 2585, Avellaneda, Buenos Aires.

Directions: It's about a 15 minute driver from 9 de Julio in the centre of the Capital, and a very straight road


View Driving directions to Almirante Solier 2585, Sarandí, Buenos Aires, Argentina in a larger map

By bus: It's even easier by Collectivo - The Number 24 bus, which runs from Villa del Parque, across town, with stops near Plaza de Mayo (On Roque Saenz Pena {Diagonal Norte}, just down from the Cathedral, and very near all the subte stations that converge on Plaza de Mayo), and the journey takes around 25 minutes from Plaza de Mayo on a Sunday morning. You need to get off in Avellaneda, on Av. Belgrano at the corner of O'Higgins (best to ask the driver). From the bus stop, walk up O'Higgins, two blocks, turn left onto Solier, and the house is across the street.

What to bring: Hash t-shirt, knife and fork, plate or bowl, beer mug and your $ 25

A few more pics from Carilo

For your pleasure and delight, some more images of Hashers doing what they do best (Ed'd Note, surely not running photos then?) - Yep, the weekend....


Hello Mum!


When the GPS fails, use the map - You are Here!


Brain Freeze - The Beer Master leaves the beer in the Ice Box too long!

Hash Trash #554 & #555 - The Carilo Hawaiian Weekend

The dust has finally settled, and the weekend of the BAH3's 555th run is now a memory, and a set of photographs sitting in numerous cameras around Argentina (and maybe in St Louis and New York as well!).

The weekend started for many with the drive down Route 2 from Buenos Aires on Friday afternoon, with some having left earlier in the week and making the weekend into a family vacation. Yours truly and Tongue y Lingus traveled down with Pussy Galore and Chori All The Way, arriving in the wonderful Alpine(ish) Hamlet of Carilo just before 9 on Friday. A few margaritas (Ed's Note - Glad to see that alcohol started early!) later, and a call to Windy Culo was made to find where the Friday Pre-Lube Party was taking place.... Clearly it had been going on for some hours as directions were difficult to acquire, so a sensible decision was taken to hit he sack early and be ready for the weekend.

Saturday morning saw the sun shining brightly, with the temperatures climbing as the morning progressed. We had been joined overnight in our cabin by Shuffled Around, Open Cola and Just Veronica, with Stop In My Sex Pit due to arrive by lunchtime - But the beach was calling, and the intrepid hashsers went for a paddle(Ed's Note - Was that piddle?), in the freezing Atlantic, whilst enjoying the summer sun. The beach was busy with the temperatures having brought more than the Hash to Carilo a week before the holiday weeeknd and everyone smiling and enjoying life.

Hash #554

After lunch it was time to get down to business and prepare for Hash Number 554. Fill My Hole had steeped in with Beautiful Bristols to lay the trail, and as the Hash gathered, some old faces, Kermit and Miss Piggy were around, and even a virgin Just Clau Dia had come along, with two visiting Americans arriving just as we set off, 2FuckCanuck and Funny BoneHer from the Big Hump Hash in St Louis. The trail followed the forest paths, sandy roads and into the sand dunes that Carilo is famous for. The weather did give an appearance of changing for the worse, but the RA made a call upstairs and the rain held off until the runs were complete.

One feature of this run was the novel concept of a rolling beer stop - With the GM sidelined from running, he set out as Beer Stop Master, and after the first BS, he drove a few hundred yards down the road, and set up again, welcomed by the Wimps, as the Macho Runners went off on their hard run. Four Beer Stops later we were back at the house for the Circle, with the weather breaking, and the Circle taking place indoors, in the quincha - a wonderful way of keeping everyone under control as there was nowhere for people to slide off too.... Numerous Down Downs were delivered, with Beer Masters (existing and past) getting the brunt of things, along with far too much Sex on Trail, and Pussy Galore and Chori All The Way were given a Special Down Down for their impersonation of Wayne's World on the Drive Down (Ed's Note - Bohemian Rhapsody head Banging - Watch the Film for cultural reference!). Tongue y Lingus reached her 25 Milestone, and was presented with her T to mark the occasion. After a rendition of Swing Low lead by visiting Canuck 2 Fuck, we headed back to the cabins to get changed into Fancy Dress for the Hawaii 555 Oh No! Party.......

The Party....

As all good hashers know - What Happens in Carilo, Stays in Carilo! But, we must pay homage to Ivor The Engine and his culinary skills at cooking some wonderful meat on the parilla - The meat fell away and melted on the tongue, and was delicious. Added to that was Wire Me Baby's Mixology skills in making Pina Coladas (Ed's Note - Don't they drink Mai Tai's in Hawaii?), and flowing beer. The grass skirts were flowing, lei's were everywhere, and the Hawaii 5-0 Police force arrived in numbers, with Pussy Galore, Chori and Cum on Me Face Full suitably attired, with Cums In Class arriving in handcuffs.... (Ed'd Note - Had she rushed out after getting changed?).

Suffice to say the dancing got more energetic as the night progressed, and the beer and Pina's took effect, with the twist, the macarena, and quite a few more unusual dance moves, seen, along with the accompanying lightning and lashing rain - But we were indoors, so who cared! Fair to say that everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and long into the night we partied, before heading to our beds with thoughts of Hash Number 555 in the morning.

Hash #555

Sunday morning - again the sun was cracking the flags, and despite a few sore heads, everyone (with the exception of our friends from St Louis), managed to turn up for the unveiling of the Special 555 celeste shirts made for the occassion (see Photos!), and once again Fill My Hole had been up early (Ed'd Note - Or maybe he hadn't been to bed!), and trail was set. Normally the Sunday run on a weekend away would be a hangover hash, but as this was 555, it was a full blown run, with no rest for the wicked. The Hare made great use of the Checks to keep the pack together as we ran through the shopping and restaurant area, before heading to the beach and the sand dunes to get a wonderful view across the beach to Pinamar and beyond. More Sex on Trail was witnessed, including Kermit and Stop In My Sex Pit, and Open Cola not learning the lessons of the previous day!

Although, in good hashing tradition, this RA sees nothing wrong with Hashers speeding up when approaching a Beer Stop, penalties of down downs were later administered to my good self (Ed's Note - Since when has the RA been good?) and Chori All The Way for racing to the Beer Stop, a race won by Chori, with sharpened elbows! After the Beer Stop, the machos went their separate ways, ably led by Fill the Hare, and those of us without the worst hangovers took the chance of a morning run, although the hare was suitably chastised for leading us to a Check Back 22, all the way to the Beer Stop, where a short three block jog brought is back for the circle.

The run was over, the circle commenced, and once again, the Beer Masters were suitably force fed beer, and at one point the Beer Masters Wives had to imbibe. Shuffled Around faced a down down for being so famous, that a street in Carilo, Maca, is named after her, with Miss Piggy showing her tendencies to kleptomania for the second day running, in confusing her Beer Mug with Beautiful Bristols', having misappropriated Ivor's on Saturday.

All in all, a wonderful weekend, which sadly had to draw to close as the pizzas arrived, and 555 was but a fond memory. The hashers wandered off into the sunset, and many started to look forward to 556 in Avellaneda (Ed'd Note - Not quite as romantic as Carilo me thinks!!!!)





.

Thanks must go out to all involved with organising the weekend, long may these annual excursions continue...... ON ON

Hash Trash #553 - Belgrano and a Full Moon

Been a little slow in getting the Hash Trash written this week, as investigations were continuing into the mysterious disappearance of the Hash Mugs after the run, or to be honest, I had a stonking hangover on Monday, and busy since. But, better late than never, and last Sunday, the sun was shining brightly, sun screen was duly applied, and Cum on My Face Full and Cums In Class were waiting somewhere in Belgrano, although not sure if it was the place on the map, but Hashers are a notoriously intelligent bunch, (Ed's note - Some mistake there!), and before the advertised time, a motley crew had got together, with a welcome visitor, Mother Ducker, from the US and a virgin or two, one local, and one german, so once again the Hash extended it's multi-national welcome to one and all.

After a Hare Talk which confused everyone, including the hares, we set off with Cums in Class leading the way, as we set about the adventure climbing part of the trail, alongside the main road, with ups and downs beside bridges, and Mother Docker managing a Papal Impersonation as he hit the deck as he tried to cross the road and kissed the asphalt! Thankfully nothing injured, except a touch of pride, and the Hash went on its merry way.

Far too many checks were evident, unfortunately, these were checks of the traffic as we crossed the roads, as the world shortage of flour had resulted in a lack of Hash Checks, although there were a few Check Backs which resulted in some cursing from the FRB's, and remarkably, the pack did manage to find a well located Beer Stop, which did seem to last longer than usual. Hand of God was spotted racing with Ivor the Engine to the beer stop, which would be OK under normal circumstances, however HOG is only 6! (Ed's note - A good age to start on the beer?).

The macho/wimp split allowed the running Hashers to get some exercise, while the rest of the pack ambled back to the meeting point, with the sun beating down, although Beautiful Bristols was heard to remark that she was feeling chilly, with the temperatures around the 25 degree mark, she has become far too acclimatised to Argentina! The rest of the pack were sun-bathing!

The circle ensued, and Ivor The Engine was "Milestoned" for completing his 250th Hash with the Buenos Aires Hash, a notable achievement, becoming the Third Hasher to reach this Milestone in Buenos Aires, which defies his youthful looks (Ed's Note: - Brown Nosing!). With Hand of God penalised for Beer Chasing, and for reasons I cannot recall, the Argentine Hashers giving us a tuneful rendition of the Argentine National Anthem (Ed's Note: Tuneful????????), the Circle was a huge success. Mother Ducker, in true US Style, declined to tell a joke, but instead treated us to a song from Pittsburgh Hash, along with a Full Moon!

The circle went in pieces, and Choripan and Chips arrived, and were devoured, along with a fair amount of beer, before the Hash drifted off with thoughts of summer runs, and warm days ahead. Subsequently it was discovered that some of the Hash Mugs may have inadvertently ended up in the wrong bag, and if anyone found a few mugs in their bag when they got home, Inspector Knacker of Scotland Yard is seeking clues - anonymity will be assured - and a reward of a Down Down will be granted, so any information can be sent via the Confidential Hot Line (Ed's Note - That means E-Mail). On to hash #555 at Carilo over the weekend of Nov 19/20th, and a weekend filled with fun and frolics in grass skirts and flowery shirts, and a Hash Run or Two!

Hash Trash #552 - Halloween Hash

Be Afraid, be very afraid.

At least, the quiet Sunday afternoon being enjoyed by the residents of Laguna Del Sol certainly was disturbed, and no doubt the hordes of witches and warlocks that descended, made quite a few people run for their lives and be afraid as the Halloween Hash turned up for their annual Fright Night.

Once again, the weather was wonderful as the many hashers that made their way to Doon Doon and Bad Flys humble abode, arrived for the late afternoon run, number 552 in the BsAs Hash Calendar. With the summer fast approaching, it was great to see old faces who have been unavailable over the cooler months, and lots of the young hashers entering into the spirit of Halloween. As Halloween is not a big holiday here in Argentina, I am sure many people in the locality were a little surprised and wondering what was going on, but smiles abounded as we set off after a hare talk in Spanglish from Doon Doon, and promptly managed to get lost straight away.

With the hash taking place on a Private Estate, the roads were generally free from traffic, and the checks were greeted with glee as Harriers and Harrietes searched out the true trail, and more importantly, would get us to the first beer stop before the sun turned the face paint into runny goo..... (Ed's note - See Pics, didn't work!). With the RA surprisingly out sprinting El Diablo to be first to the beer stop (Ed's note - You should see him move at Last Orders!), the pack re-assembled and enjoyed Isenbeck, before setting off on the second leg of their task, to find the second beer stop.

The second beer stop was in the picturesque setting of the lake in the centre of the estate, and more beer flowed, before the pack, with the Virgin Sebastian up at the front (Ed's note - He'll learn!), smartly followed by El Diablo, Two Secs and Good Service, and the RA still hanging in there, along with new hashers we picked up along the way, as the local children joined in for quite some distance before realising we were still running away - or more likely when someone stated that El Diablo ate little kids at Halloween!

Before we knew it, we were back at base and prepared for a long circle with many returnees, virgins and new arrival Victim and his good lady, who we hope to see more of in the future. We also had to select the Biggest Down Downs for the Which Witch is Which competition, as we had a lot of witches out on the run, including Good Service, Bad Fly, Party Pants, Red Hot Chilli, Tongue y Lingus & Shuffled Around, as well as the award for Least Scary of the day - We won't embarass anyone by saying that Easy Rides Her had made such an effort he won handsomely in the male category for Least Scary, but the Witches Award was a hung decision, and despite the RA's efforts to test out the theory of the dunking stool in the swimming pool, we let them all off with a handsome amount of beer instead.

There was one highly charged milestone with Wire Me Baby reaching his 1-69th Hash which was celebrated in the traditional way, upside down, and naturally there were some excellent spooky gags from the RA (Ed's note - He keeps trying - unfortunately!). We managed to lose one of the younger hashers who had gone off Trick or Treating, so we cut short the Circle to go and find him (he found his own way back anyway), so we were unable to pass judgement on our own Trick or Treater, Just Claudia, who had made quite an impression, with her specially designed outfit for the day. I will leave the readers to judge the merits. This is the link to the main album of pics from the Hash

Mention must be made of the On Afters, as Doon Doon and Bad Fly did the Hash proud with a wonderful parilla, delicious meat, and the vampire fangs certainly got their teeth stuck into the food. And so, as the sun had gone down, and the witching hour approached, the witches got their broomsticks out and headed home, and the black cats sat watching as we all departed from another great day out with the BA Hash House Harriers.

Next Hash Full Details

Hash Number 552 - The Halloween Hash - Sunday 30th October 2011

HALLOWEEN HASH

The witching hours are upon us - and we have an EXTRA hash planned for Halloween, so dig out your ghostly ghouls, your witches broomsticks, and vampire teeth, and come out for the day and run with the BA Hash, and enjoy the spirits (or beer!). This Special run takes place this Sunday, October 30th, and note the start time - 4:30 PM - Especially so we can spot the witches flying as the sun goes down. Full directions will be available later in the week, but dig out your maps, and plan the afternoon, as a fun time is guaranteed for all.

Prepare your most horrible clothes for the On Afters, and for those already ugly enough, little preparation will be needed! (I'm quoting Doon Doon there!)

Sunday, 30 October 2011

4:30 PM Start

Location: Laguna del Sol lote 650, Gral. Pacheco

Directions -

Como llegar? Muy fácil!

Tomar la ruta Panamericana salir en el km 23,5 Camino del Buen Ayre Nordelta. Pasar el peaje y seguir hacia tu derecha dirección Nordelta Bancalari. Pasar frente al Walmart a tu derecha. Siguen hasta la rotonda y toman derecho dirección Nordelta. No cruzar las vías!!!
En la dirección a Nordelta y pasando el Colegio Pilgrims tendrán la entrada a Laguna del Sol a tu derecha. Ok?

Take the Panamericana to Km 23.5, Camino del Buen Ayre Nordelta. Go through the toll and make a right in the direction of Nordelta Bancalari. Pass in front of Walmart (on your right). Go round the roundabout and take the right in the direction of Nordelta. Don't cross the road. Head that way and after passing the Pilgrims College, take the entrance to Laguna Del Sol on your right. This is a Private Estate and the security people will ask where you are going - They know the Hash is coming.....

If you are trying to come by Public Transport, I would suggest trying to share a Taxi, either from Tigre Station or even from town - whilst it may be more expensive than usual to get to the Hash - This is one well worth getting to.... Parilla is to die for - Not to mention the beer!

Any questions???!!!

Hash Trash #551 - The French Trip

Sunday, October 23rd, was the day that the Buenos Aires Hash House Harriers went to France - Or at least that's what nearly happened when, yours truly, looked up which train I needed to get to our host hares house for the day. Apparently, when I checked on line, to get to Boulogne, you need to get a train from Paris Nord station. Well, having consulted Air France's timetable, I thought I might be heading in the wrong direction, and although I knew that Just Howard does have a long trip when he comes out Frinking with the Hashers on Fridays, I realised I might have the wrong Boulogne, and so it was to Retiro Station I headed, taking the Red Train (not quite the TGV), and arriving at "our" Boulogne.

Despite the Presidential Elections, a healthy turn out of Hashers arrived, and no phone calls from France were received with lost Hashers. Virgins, Greg (from La Puerta Roja), Chris (from LA), and Josh (from Keynsham, UK), all managed to locate us, and a little late, as we were waiting for Windy Culo to arrive (Ed's note - No Change there!), we set off. The beer stop was remarkably early, so as to allow everyone to sample the Quilmes Beer that the Beer Master, Wire Me Baby, had especially bought for the occasion, (Ed's note - What that means is he forgot to get the Isenbeck Hash Beer, and had to grab what was left in his local supermercado!).

The Wimps/Macho split soon emerged, and unfortunately, due to car GPS's not being accurate, it left a relatively short Wimps Trail, which did have the advantage of the Walkers arriving back before the Macho's. The FRB's, lead by our Racist Runner, Just Mike (He likes to wear race T-Shirts, we must get him a hash shirt!), swiftly followed by El Diablo, the GM Ivor, and Two Secs, with Qualified Semen and Windy Culo, not requiring to be Medivac'd from the course today, following close behind. Some Hash Views were in evidence, with the Argentine Armies One Tank on display, along with Mother and newly born Foal (Ed's note - Just to get an Arghhhhhh!), and a rather unusual Hash View, that no Hasher has ever seen before after a Saturday Night out, which I will leave to your imagination, but it may have involved carrots and peas, and Hughie!

A relatively short run ensued, but a fine head of sweat was showing as the lead pack returned to base, and a lively circle ensued, with many a down down, and wonderful jokes from the RA,(Ed's note - YEH YEH YEH!!!), followed by Pizza's and copious amounts of beer, given that there were no bars open in the afternoon to head off too. Good Service clocked up her 327th Hash here, which given she still looks so young, she must have started when she was a baby!

Many thanks to our Virgin Greg, who invited the stragglers back to his bar later for Chilli Bombs, which brought colour to my cheeks, and the 551st run by the BAH3 came to a close.

Hash Number 551 - The Next Run - Sunday 23rd October 2011

ELECTION DAY PRESIDENTIAL HASH

Yes, it's the election day on Sunday, but the Hash goes on, so if you get up early and head out to vote, you can relax in the knowledge you have added to democracy, and got a run in, with beer too, and some nice food, in the company of some really nice people. This week, we see a first visit to Just Howard, and a trip to Boulogne - not the one in France, but the one to the north of the capital, quite near to San Isidro. In my time here it's a first, so new routes to run, which always makes for an interesting experience. I've included full directions form Retiro Train Station - Be careful which train you take - and also by road - Any questions, or problems, let me know before Sunday, and if in doubt my number is 15 5809 4939

Hash News - October 2011

For those interested in Hashing outside of Buenos Aires and Argentina, I thought I would report on a few things that are happening in the Hash World. Last weekend saw the Inter Americas Hash in Savannnah, Georgia. This is a bi-ennial event, which I had thought was to do with the US only, as at each event bids are made for the subsequent event, and the 2013 Inter-Americas was awarded to Panama - So, if you want a hashing holiday to Central America, then check your diaries well ahead of time, and check out the link to their site, which I am sure will be updated with full details very soon.

Also, if you check the links alongside here, you will see that I have added links to the various web-sites that are now around for the South American hashes. It is great to see active hash kennels now in Santiago, Uruguay, Rio & Sao Paulo in Brazil, and although they are still short of a web page, there is an active hash in Lima, Peru. So, if you are travelling in South America, why not take in a local hash and let us know about it. And an advance notice to all, that plans are in embryonic stages of organising a South American Inter Hash in 2012, probably here in Argentina, and more information will be forthcoming in the months to come. - ON ON

Hash Trash #550 - The not the BA Marathon Hash

Another sunny day was promised by the RA for the 550th BsAs Hash, and as it was Columbus Day this week, the hares, Old Hag and Mr Mum, highlighted some special Columbus Checks before the ragged pack set off. Just as we were heading to check out the trail, the GM got a text message from Windy Culo, who had been running his first,(Ed's note... "And last"), Marathon that morning in Buenos Aires. Cramp had caught up at Km 32 and he had been Medivaced off the course by motorbike, and whilst the hashers offered sympathy in their usual way (Ed's note - You mean they laughed a lot!), down downs will be made available when next Windy returns.

Onwards the hash went, leaving the urban Plaza San Martin, and heading in a different direction to previous hashes from this area. Checks were found and hashers lost (No change there), but the trail was plentiful, and with the FRB's heading off swiftly, the pack strung out into three or four groups, before catching up at the checks. At one point, the GM and the RA, along with virgin Just Si, Foxy Lady and Hand of God, thought they could become Film Extras, as a film location unit was shooting something or other near Plaza de Mayo, but star status would have to wait, as the Beer Stop was calling - Hash Priorities!

Unknown to many (Ed - You mean the RA wasn't aware!), but there is a statue to Columbus sitting in the gardens of the Casa Rosada, and whilst he may not be as popular in Argentina as in other parts of the Americas, the Beer Stop was held in his honour, glasses were charged, and Columbus was officially named a hasher!

The pack moved into Puerto Madero, as usual getting strange looks from the tourists and locals alike, not to mention the Prefectura.



Calatrava had his bridge crossed and the pack started to head back towards Plaza San Martin and the circle. And it was to be an interesting circle. Just Claudia was obviously sporting new shoes, and as an experienced hasher in Dubai, really should have known better... Naturally she was made to imbibe for this crime against fashion, and Just Ramiro assisted with the other foot!..... Virgins were welcomed, Just Si and his wife Just Jo. Rugby was mentioned, and swiftly forgotten by the English, Irish and Argentine hashsers, and of course, this was the first week we had a Welsh Hasher! And the highlight of the circle, aside from the fantastic jokes from the RA, (Ed's note - "Yeh Right!"), was a naming ceremony for Just Peg, who will be leaving our shores at Yuletide, but has been around a while and deserved a naming. Many were put forward, and debate ensued, but her laugh for Weiners seemed to prevail, and from henceforth (Ed - "Swallowed a dictionary?") she will be known as "Chori All The Way" - and was suitably baptised in the usual way.

The circle was blessed and went in pieces, and we retired to eat at the hares splendid apartment, where we had been teased with masturbating food suggestions, which turned out to be a wonderful pulled pork recipe - which was enjoyed by all. Another successful hash was completed, and all went away from the sunny day with a smile on their face, and a full stomach! - ON ON

Hash Trash #549 - The First Hash of Spring

Spring was in the air, or Primavera as it is here, and a beautiful sunny day welcomed us to San Isidro and Rodger the Cabin Boy and Red Hot Chilli were ready and waiting for us at the sporty location, where, if you were disinclined to run, you could while away the time watching the tennis next door, or the horse riding across the road.

Visitors were arriving, or in the case of a Hasher from Hawaii (Rabid Gazelle), not so much arriving as losing all sense of direction. eventually, after a number of panting phone calls, he was located by Windy Culo, heading back to the Capital (ironically actually on trail, although he wasn't aware of that for an hour or more!), who also managed to find Fossil Fuck on his taxi travels, and a little late, after all had gathered (with the exception of the GM who was watching rugby) we set off, with the said GM arriving by bike as we headed off towards the railway lines, with meticulous diagrams drawn by Rodger the Cabin Boy to set us on our way.

We soon headed up as a pack towards the cathedral and market place, with steps to climb, along with somewhat different check signs, with the new creation of a multi-directional check mark, which confused us even more than usual (Ed's note... Not hard to do that to Hashers!). A rotunda was found, and subsequently lost again, and the pack split up into varying degrees of ability (Ed's note... Surely you mean Inability?!), and the sun beat down upon the pack as it meandered through the Streets of London (Sorry, just listening to Ralph McTell there!), San Isidro.

Libertador was crossed, and re-crossed by those of us off trail, and finally the pack headed back towards the river, with Tit Climber, Two Secs, Just Mike, from BA via Kilkenny, on his first Hash, along with Just Brad form New Orleans, also losing his virginity, among the leading lights. The path along the Tren de la Costa was a long 1.2 Km straight line, but good for a steady run, and with many of the Hashers having stayed up all night to watch the rugby, it was a final chance to blow away the lack of sleep before the On In and the Circle. The sun also was taking it's toll on people, with the English Rose Just Jack, turning lobster like as the first sun of spring burnt away, but glad to report that all made it back for the festivities of the Circle.

Numerous down downs were given, not least for the perfect trail, and the main victims/instigators from the Interloper hash (see previous Hash Trash), Ivor, Tit Climber and Fossil Fuck, were all rewarded for their efforts. Just Mike had been nominated by Windy who had to go and do more taxi work, to act as his designated drinker, and poor Mike had to suffer the number of incursions that Windy had (as usual) made.

A re-naming took place, as due to the events at hash number 548, it was felt appropriate that Tit Climber should be re-named to El Diablo, and his baptism was carried out in the usual way, blessed by Holy Beer from the RA. The Circle came to an end with a rousing rendition of Allouette, lead by Footsie in fine style, with some new mimes thrown in for good measure, and finally the RA let the Circle go in Pieces, and the food and drink flowed as another successful, sunny, Hash came to an end.

Hash Trash #548 - The One with The Interloper!

Another spring time sunny day was upon us, and the Hash descended upon Recoleta, where our resident Hare, Tit Climber, ably assisted by Stop in my Sex Pit and virgin layer Just Jacqui (who can't remember her hash name from Bangalore!), and doesn't like being called Jacqui, were in attendance. Despite the added attraction (or was that dis-traction?) of the Buenos Aires Half marathon, which had stolen away Windy Culo for the morning, the Racist Windy managing a very credible 1:45:13 and finishing in 2,767th place, and Fill My Hole clocking 1:36:48, some 1700 places ahead in 1071st (Ed.notes... Stop with all this race reporting!).

Despite the host of emails concerned about road closures for the race, a very healthy crowd gathered in from of the Palais de Glace, and nobody seemed to be held up arriving, even the GM managed to make it without a GPS hand from Windy's Monkey Spanker, so all was set for the Hash to start on the weekend that the Rugby World Cup was starting (more of that later!)....

The trail was exceptionally well marked, too well for many as it meant little rest time at check points, and a start near the market in Recoleta naturally had to head towards the cemetery and around the market place. Tourists were staring as the pack, ably lead by Two Secs, Qualified Semen and Foxy Lady, dashed through the BA Design Centre, before heading around the back of the cemetery and into embassy land. Naturally the Hash went up and down every flight of steps that was available - For those who thought Buenos Aires was flat, Think Again when Tit Climber lays trail! He manages to find every incline in the city. This was not good news for Beautiful Bristols, making a welcome return to the Hash, but with her bad knee, utilizing a bike, which had to be carried up and down the stone steps....

very soon, the pack were basking in the sun, and finding the first beer stop, where the hares had provided plenty of beer to replenish the souls, although, once again, the slower pack members managed to avoid the Beer Stop, leaving the macho's to enjoy ample beverage, and the Virgin Just Ramiro (Ed Note - He owns a bar - what a perfect hasher!), was feeling the pace, and enjoying the beer.

Off the pack headed again, and on Libertador there was the usual split, allowing the Macho's to head off to the Club de Amigos and an extended run for them, while the wimps managed to get completely lost (Ed... AGAIN!!!!), but smelling the second beer stop, were able to pick up trail again just before the metal flower at the Plaza de Unidad Nacions, and leap into the parque for the last refill. Amazingly the wimps beat the machos, and then the lost walkers discovered us as well, so the pack were altogether again, and a couple of loops for the machos and a crossing over the bridge saw the pack almost all finishing together back at the Palais de Glace.

The sun was still high in the sky, and the circle commenced with the GM welcoming returnees and Virgins alike, with a good number of new faces, and some old ones too that have been finding it hard to avoid the hangovers from Saturdays in recent months! (Ed... You know who you are!). The new Hymn sheets were delivered, and using the latest microscope technology, even some of the ageing hashers were able to read the 4 point font size, and songs were sang and beer flowed. It's usually at this point that the Hash Trash comes to an end, but we were in for a different ending to the day, and the Rugby World Cup sprang to mind.

Fro some reason unknown to us all, as the Post Hash Empenadas had been dispatched, the last of the beer disappearing into the Hashers Bellys, and people starting to head away, A Cry was heard, heads turned and an Interloper, (El Loco),ran straight into the crowd - Heading for Tit Climber, yelling DIABLO! DIABLO!! pushing aside Hashers and arms flaying, seemed vent on Tit Climber's shirt... It was at this point that I got a good view of what was happening, and our erstwhile GM, displaying the tackling skills that had been lacking from the England teams weak victory on Saturday, flew into action, taking out El Loco, straight to the floor. Just Ramiro ran to assist with Tit Climber sitting on his legs, while shouts of Policia rang out from the crowd, the tourists and locals of Recoleta looked on at the commotion. Fossil Fuck added his foot to the neck of our friend, and we awaited the arrival of the Federales.

I guess we will never know what caused the interruption, but it appeared the Union Flag on Tit Climbers Hash Shirt might have been the red rag to the bull. Naturally with all us gringos on the Hash it is one of the Argentine Hashers who was wearing the flag, and El Loco obviously didn't think too clearly, given the rugby skills of our Hashers. The Policia came, first one on a bike, then a Sergeant, followed by a car, and a couple more - El Loco was handcuffed, laying on his belly on the grass, and the seven


Policia spoke to those around. After a few minutes, an ambulance arrived, as clearly El Loco was just that, a little crazy, and two orderlies got out of the ambulance, the first smoking a ciggie as she walked up to the Police, hand-shakes all round, and at one point, we expected the mate to come out as everyone seemed to forget the guy in handcuffs.... If he had been half awake, he could have rolled away at this point and made his escape, and nobody would have been any wiser..... He was taken away in the ambulance, along with a police escort, and normal service was resumed.

An unexpected ending to the day, but thankfully nobody was hurt, and it has meant that I got to write a lot more in the Hash Trash. ON ON to the next hash on Sept 25th, and full details for the event will be posted next week for your delight....

Hash Number 548 - Sunday 11th September - The Rugby World Cup One

Primavera is definitely in the air, and we all have a Spring in our steps as the weather improves and the Rugby World Cup commences in New Zealand. ((((Fresh from the fantastic victory by the Pumas over England on Saturday / The lucky win by the English team over a gallant Pumas)))) DELETE AS APPLICABLE - The Hash Goes on, and this week we have Tit Climber once again stepping where few fear to tread, and laying trail once again, ably assisted on the feeding front by Stop In My Sex Pit and Just Jacqui, who will be ensuring that the hash is suitably replenished after it's picturesque run, which starts this week at the Palais de Glace in Recoleta, and is sure to take in the sights of the surrounding area.

Hares – Tit Climber, with Stop In My Sex Pit and Just Jacqui ably assisting

Run Site - Palais de Glace, Posadas 1725, Recoleta

Meeting Point - Right in front of the Palais, which is on Posadas and Schiffino. For those unfamiliar with the area, it's near to Recoleta Cemetary, which should help you locate the place.

Time: 11:00 for 11:30

Bring: hash Mug, Plate, T-Shirt - Yourself - A friend.....

Where it is. Very close to Avenue Libertador, so easy to access by car from places like San Isidro. It's not too close to the Subte, but Callao on the D Line is probably the nearest, but it is still a good 10 blocks to walk, so buses may be the best bet. Buses that go close are the 17, 61, 62, 67, 92, 93, 110, 124 and 130, and its also not a million miles from Retiro Station, albeit a nice walk along Libertador.

Hash Trash #547 - The One with Great Directions

Once again the RA was true to his word and the weather was absolutely fantastic for the Hash. With rain on Saturday, things were looking dodgy, but Sunday morning saw the sun shining, and the hares, Just Claudia and Tit Climber were off bright and early laying copious amounts of flour around Caballito (unfortunately not actually on the trail though!). Sun tan oil was required, rather than winter woolies, and the hashers began to arrive under the statue of Simon Bolivar in Parque Rivadavia, thanks to the wonderful directions that had been issued by the hares.

There were quite a few new faces, and some welcome returnees, with a visitor from Washington DC (Uno, Dos, Tres - Lift Off), two new arrivals from Mexico, via New Delhi (No Problem!, and Yes, Problem!) and Just Ian who hashed in the Middle East in the past, along with the cousin of Stop in My Sex Pit. Doon Doon made a welcome return after the winter holidays, and, despite having difficulty in locating Buenos Aires, or reading maps, the GM, Ivor the Engine, made it to the parque, having called up a local navigator, Windy's Monkey Spanker to assist his way. (No comment as to how our Washington visitor, having only been in the city for 24 hours managed to find her way there with no problem, while the GM, having lived here 11 years, had an issue!).....

With a healthy pack, obviously enjoying the weather, we set off in search of flour, and immediately got lost! Clearly the National Flour shortage was in evidence on the first few blocks, but hashers are a resourceful lot, and after much gnashing of teeth and soul-searching (Ed. Surely you mean Flour-searching?), the trail took off, with some fine running, with Drums In Class leading the way, strangely also with one of the hares front-running, and Foxy Lady dragging along whoever would hold the lead.

Once again the Electric Works was circled, bringing back memories of Hash Number 544 when we got completely lost, but this time we made it through, and found more flour, before searching hard for the first of two Beer Stops - Just what the doctor ordered, and suitably refreshed the pack split, and the machos found Parque Irlanda, while the wimps went off on their own, thanks to a taxi locating them - YES, Tit Climber had to resort to vehicular support to find the lost ones, but locate them he did, and everyone managed to find Parque Centenario, and the second Beer Stop. It was just before this point that Windy's Monkey Spanker and Just Damian (Our new Aussie who's name I got wrong last time out, calling him Daniel {I was close!}) went their own way, missing the Beer Stop, and heading straight back to the starting point, ignoring flour as they talked shop.....

After a healthy day out enjoying stretching the legs in Caballito, the pack regrouped, but not before Fossil Fuck was propositioned on his way into the parque, and we located those that had gone off for a coffee, as against a stroll in the sun, and with ample amounts of down downs for varying offences, some fantastic jokes from the RA (Ed... Some mistake there I think!), the pack laughed in the sun, attracting the attention of parque dwellers, drank beer, and then enjoyed Milanesa Sandwiches with fries, before heading off into the sunset, with the GM asking for directions home!

Next Hash #547 Sunday 28th August 2011


Parque Rivadavia.... A Virgin Hare Too.....

The elections are over, winter has tried to do it's worst, but the Hash continues to go where no Hash has gone before (OK, not really true as we were just next door to this weeks venue a month ago!). This week, we have a Virgin Hare, making her debut in setting trail here in Buenos Aires, after her experiences in the Dubai desert. Claudia will be laying a fine trail for us, ably assisted by the Part Time Beer Master, Wire My Baby. This week we head to Caballito, and the picturesque Parque Rivadavia.

Hash Trash - # 546 - The Day of the Primaries

Sunday, August 14th, and the first time that Argentine Voters have gone to the Primaries to pre-elect their President - At least that's what I think they were doing. But the Buenos Aires Hash House Harriers were not to be trifled with a little thing like an election, and on a glorious Spring Like Day, the hares, Up Chuck No Fuck and Inspect Her Assets, had been out early in the Belgrano district laying an intriguing set of trails for the Harriers.

Given the elections, and the word that it could take up to twelve hours to vote here - Choices, choices.... we didn't know what to expect by way of numbers. The hares hoped that the proximity to the northern barrios would lead to around the 20 mark, however, the Beer Master, Wire My Baby, had erred on the lower side, and had only brought one crate of beer with him, (down downs at future hashes for him, we were not going to waste the limited beer on him this week!!!!) expecting a low turnout. But, like the elections, it's mandatory to run with the Hash, and with the sun cracking the flags, the numbers who congregated at Lisandro de La Torre station swelled to a healthy 22 + Perro Caliente (a dog in case you are wondering!), and a little after the designated time, the pack were off, and getting lost immeadiately.....

The first section of trail saw a number of embassies being circled, notably the German Embassy, and although we had no Germans on the trail, the falsies that were all found by the pack, ensured that the security guards must have felt as though they were being invaded as the pack went past three or four times - who were we running from? Numerous False Trails had been set by the hares, and for once, all were found by the pack, which does give a sense of satisfaction to the hares, as there is nothing worse than the pack ignoring the hard work and guessing the right way! Thailand, Malaysia, Poland and probably a few more embassies were passed, but the zig-zagging pack stayed on trail until Parque Belgrano was located, and naturally, where there were steps to climb, the hares had laid trail in that direction, with a circular route through the Parque, which was rewarded with a nice little beer stop to relieve the runners.

Windy Culo, along with Perro Caliente, were showing great form, and the leading pack was supplemented by an experienced hasher newly arrived to Buenos Aires, Daniel Patrick Kelly (I will learn how to spell & pronounce the hash name one day), with Tit Climber, Two Secs, Just Claudia, the Beer Master himself (he's getting remarkably quick these days!) and Viagra Spices from New York, closely followed to this juncture by Footsie and yours truly, all enjoying the Isenbeck on a warm day. The fact that the leading pack had found all the falsies meant that the walkers caught up quickly at this point, and suitably refreshed all set off on the second part of the trail.

A split took place just after the Beer Stop, and the macho runners enjoyed (well, that may not be quite the word!) a long run around Belgrano, and the rest of the pack
took in the site of the old plane (anyone who knows what this is - please tell), before the trails joined up again for a trip through Barrio Chino, or Chinatown, which was thronged with people, but the trail was just about still visible, with Footise recommending restaurants as we passed. A few more twists and turns saw us across Libertador, and the Golf Club loomed up and the urban landscape swiftly changed to green.

For those who wanted to stretch their legs out, the final few kilometres of the trail took them passed the golf club and around the lake, before turning back towards the BA Tennis Club and the On In, with the Wimps Trail undercutting the lake, resulting in the lead pack and the walkers arriving back within a few minutes of each other.

The circle took place in the Parque Bolivia adjoining the station, and with the sun really getting warmth on our backs for the first time in a while, a boistrous circle was held, with numerous down downs for malfractions, including cross dressing between Tit Climber and Two Secs, Business on Trail between Windy and Viagra, and inability to use technology from Roger The Cabin Boy, who along with Red Hot Chilli had been late arrivals. We welcomed the Kelly Family to BA, with the above mentioned Daniel accompanied by his lovely wife and girls, and two visiting Virgins, who despite not knowing each other, both came from Montreal, Canada... Will they ever return?

The circle concluded and we retreated to the Chori-Shack for some delightful food, and those who care to say that there is no spicy food in Buenos Aires should take a trip down to the shack by the station, as the tongues were burning brightly - ask Windy....

And so the 546th BA Hash came to an end, and the experienced and new hashers alike all seemed to have a good day out, and with the weather starting to warm up, we look forward to the arrival of spring, with this weeks hash being a pre-taster of things to come - ON ON

Next Hash #546 Sunday August 14th - The Primary Hash


Once again the Hash is blessed with an Election Special. This week it is the Primaries (whatever that may mean - I get lost easily), so make sure you get up early, get out to the polling station and cast your ballot for whichever lista takes your fancy, and then come out and enjoy the warmer weather (well, let's hope), and what better way to get away from all those election ads than to come to the 546th Hash Run mis-organised by your friendly neighbourhood Buenos Aires Hash House Harriers.

We have a Very Special hare this week, with Los Angeles's finest, Up Chuck, No Fuck, leading the way, ably assisted by yours truly, and we are heading to the northern end of town, with the trail commencing at Lisandro de la Torre Railway Station, so very easy to get to for all our Hashers based on the Northern Side of town, AND, only a short walk from Olleros Subte Station on Linea D, therefore easy to get to from those of us based elsewhere in the city. If you are taking the subte, just come out of the station, which is on the corner of Olleros and Av. Cabildo, and walk up Olleros. it's no more than a 10 minute walk (if that). When you get to Av. Libertador, the Railway station is in front of you.

Hash Trash - # 544 - Parque Centenario - Just a Perfect Day

Well, somebody had said that it was winter in Buenos Aires, but you may have been in for a surprise at the latest hash, when the multitude of hashers from Buenos Aires arrived in Parque Centenario for the 544th hash organised by the mis-management committee. The sun was blazing and temperatures, (in the sun anyway), were up in the mid-teens.

Tit Climber and Two Secs were the hares of record, and after a hare talk which confused as much as enlightened, the pack was off and running. Mr Mum, IHA and Wire My Baby were the front runners for the day, quickly finding the Macho Trail and disappearing from the strolling hashers, lead by Sister Mary, Tongue y Lingus and Red Hot Chilli.

Initially the trail was easily found, and then disaster struck. A subtle (if long) false trail was found by the FRB's, who back-tracked to the previous check, only to be abject failures at finding the right trail. The architecturally beautiful electricity



building that adjoined the trail at this point, was becoming less attractive as the pack re-grouped, and managed to run around it a few times, without finding trail - And then, a moment of clarity was heard as On On was called, and trail spotted...

Unfortunately, this trail looked somewhat familiar, given that the pack had been running around in circles, and before they knew it, they were back at the check that had lead to all the problems in the first place :). For the first time in memory, the pack were completely lost, so Tongue y Lingus used her modern communication device to call the hares, who were patiently waiting at the Beer Stop, and directions were given, and before too long, the whole pack (having missed 5 Km's of trail) arrived at the Beer Stop by the railway lines, where there was a Two Tier system of beer, for Wimps and Macho's, along with picada, benches to rest on, and the sun shining on our backs.

After a short repast, the pack moved off together, with Roger The Cabin Boy and Mr Mum discussing, at some length, Rupert Murdochs woes, and soon we were all back at the Parque Centenario where a Picnic in The Park was arranged, wonderful empenadas were enjoyed, along with a little beer, and down-downs were issued to all for one reason or another. Notably to a visitor from Peru (Clara?), for the simple reason that Peru were the only team with a hasher into the semi-finals of the Copa America.

All in all, a good day, if a truncated hasd, and naturally the hares were found guilty of confusing the pack, which lets face it, may not be the hardest thing to do - we are hashhers after all.
