Hares: Pisser & Flasher
It was quite fitting that the circle for hash 136, the final hash before the summer hashers leave for their winter destinations, was held on the beach at Fener. The RA had done his job well, it was a lovely sunny evening but not too warm.
At 2pm prompt the GM for the days proceedings, Hose Handler, called all 20 hashers in to the circle. His first duty was to name the HONer for this weeks hash. Butt Butt was called in and informed that she was the HONer. The hares Pisser and Flasher were called in and they gave the usual “flat, short” speech. A quick tot up of numbers attending the On On On was done and they were back out. The GM then opened up with his first joke which went down very well. This funny spell was brought to an abrupt halt as the RA, VC took the circle. VC then proved that just because you don’t know the end of a joke, it doesn’t mean it can’t be funny. Even if not necessarily for the right reasons. He followed this with his customary warm up and this concluded the opening circle.
On On was called. The trail immediately went up a hill, then up some more followed by some more up. At last we got to the top and went downhill again only to go along for a few hundred metres and then, yes, back up to the top again. By this stage the walkers and runners had split and would not meet again until the end. The route took us through the village of Fener out in to the country. Up a river bed and then back through the village on the other side of the valley. The runners stayed mostly together with the exception of VC who ran on ahead, must have been feeling keen as it was his last hash for a while. Due to a large van parking directly over a check VC carried on back alone, never once wondering why there were no further marks. After some 1 hour 15 minutes all were back safe and sound.
The GM called the circle. It was then noted that we had an extra hasher. Semen had turned up after we had started. He had gone the wrong way on the trail so missed it completely. Never mind, better late than never at least he made it for his favourite bit..... the beer. First in the circle was Butt Butt, the HONer. This was awarded due to Butt Butt stepping in at the last moment to cover as hash flash for Doggy Style who had been taken ill. Next came the hares. The RA complained about bad marking as he had missed a check but he was soon silenced by the cheering crowds. Next we had 2 virgins, Debbie and Rachel. They were followed by the returnee, Flasher. The GM soon realised that he had forgotten to nominate a scribe. At the third time of asking, Pisser said he would do it. The GM handed over to the RA and he was off. Flasher was given another down down for returning from Australia which she obviously had to drink on her head. The virgins were brought in to give us a little insight as to who they are. They were also told all the hashers names. It was not long after this that Butt Butt introduced her identical twin sister Çok Çılgın from Istanbul. The girls put on a very entertaining dance for the circle, which must have taken hours of bedroom rehearsals. After the dance Çılgın decided she need to sit down...oops lay down. Miss attitude was brought in for wearing her Halloween costume, a scary cat. Lots of other hashers, myself included, were brought in to the circle on trumped up charges and given a swift down down. The RA then wowed us with his usual mix of tongue in cheek and risqué repartee. The GM came back in and called all those heading off for the winter in to the circle for a down down. A seasonal farewell was bid to, I Love Clock, Tramp Juice, Stalker, Happy, Semen and Vacuum Cleaner. The RA did his final “Oh Lord” and the circle was then closed. Those that attended the restaurant had a great meal and the view of the sun setting over the sea was a lovely way to end a pleasant evening.
