HASH TRASH - RUN 677

HASH TRASH - RUN 677
Hashdod By the Sea
Place: Ashdod
Hares: Loose Caboose, Turn-Ho



A merry band of nine Hashers came down to Ashdod. It would have been ten, had Deliverance not missed the damn turnoff -- again. Also fearful of getting lost, Claire and Richard had set out early, then spent an hour touring the sights of Ashdod. That's about all one needs, really.

There being no walkers, the runners circled up and dashed On-on. Our hares had originally mapped out a longer trail but cut it to a short 5k due to the first (but certainly not the last) heatwave of the year. Despite the holiday's proscription on leavening, they managed to scrape together enough flour for proper though not Kosher for Passover blobs.

Goldmember did not wear a Hash shirt! Her logic was that as she was keeping tradition and wasn't drinking beer, which is not Kosher for Passover, she didn't have to worry about getting a Down-down.*

After several weeks on hiatus, Dr. Do-little rejoined our ranks in fine short-cutting style. He brought with him a friend named Feydor who doesn't have much experience, having done just a few Olympic games and the Tour de France only nine times... Well, the Hash was new for him, anyway!

Loose lips may sink ships but Loose Caboose's lips spurred the group on, with continual verbal indications as to which was the right way, much to his co-Hare's chagrin. The run took us down to the glorious Ashdod beach and up by the local soccer stadium before bringing us back to the starting point and some refreshing cold ones.


*She did get one, though.

AND... THIS WEEK IN HASH-TORY
Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it
From a 1950 Kuala Lumpur club registration card:
Objectives of Hashing:
1. To encourage physical fitness amongst our members
2. To get rid of weekend hangovers
3. To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it with beer
4. To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel
