Lovely day for a Hash in Yalikavak. We all met at Noddy and Barrel's place at the appointed time (more about appointed time's later!), after a bit of hash-cashing and hash-chatting we formed a circle.
We welcomed visitors, virgins and returnees, heard absolutely nothing of interest from the Hares who just confused us with the alphabet, the GM talked about the successful wedding hash, we gave Lightfoot his just desserts and thanked King Crapper for sorting out the new signs and then. ....got back into our vehicles! Our convoy of two trucks with happy hashers crammed into the back and a car made it's way to the start of the run at point A...or was it B??
The route was not without it's challenges. Mountain goats would have been very comfortable cavorting on the steep rocky outcrops and then could have been dinner for the two ferocious sounding big dogs at the bottom. As it was we tripped and slid our way down, narrowly missing being dinner for the dogs and reached the road safely, except maybe Shitter who once again took a fall – probably on this part of the route. The rest of the route was straight forward with some lovely views and a section by the beach, some of us went slightly off course but local knowledge kept us in the right direction for whatever point we were heading for!
All rendezvoused back at Noddy and Barrel's place, some took to the pool – others the shade and
most to the beer! The circle was called and downs downs were awarded.....in no particular order of merit.....the hares were called in to be told what a dreadful run it was, another welcome to visitors from Aberdeen - High Maintenance and Muff Diver also Thomaz and Elisabeth who I think were friends of Lightfoot and then returnees, Mike and Pia. Lightfoot got a down down for not explaining the hat rule, Shitter got awarded the helmet and a down down for his clumsiness on the trail – yet again. Muffin Muncher just had to sit in the circle and got a down down for this breach of rules
but then further defiance followed in the form of tea-potting and wearing pink got her another down down.
The big issue of the afternoon presented by Culture Vulture was the time of the summer Hashes . Normally they move to 5pm for June/July/August. It was said that the difference in temperature is a minor 2 degrees and that it gets tricky getting bookings/good service in restaurants during the busier time of the evening. So it was suggested we stayed at 2pm. LuvJoy said that we should have beach barbecues instead of going to restaurants after the summer Hashes and I think suggested 4pm starts. After some shouting out and voting, it was agreed that we would start at 3pm. It was also agreed that barbecues were a good idea and LuvJoy was appointed Barbe-Meister (although according to spell-checker this is Babe-Meister which he just might prefer!).
The Aberdeen Hash-visitors got tested on our Hash names, which would have been difficult enough but some – no names mentioned – forgot their own hash names.....down downs ensued! Finally I remember a down down for those with no mugs. Apologies for any omissions but there you go!
