VALENTINE OR DOWN DOWN?
Is it possible to combine the day of Valentine and International Hashing?
As a guest (he had left his partner at the hotel which is why he asked the question. Ed.) I had the privilege to be picked up from my hotel in Cannes by Spanish Fly, who immediately turned out to be a nice fellow and an excellent driver in his big, black Mercedes.
Luckily there was no heavy traffic in Cannes, as we left the city and drove towards the run site around Lac St. Cassien in the honorable Department of The Var, famous for the cycling race Tour Haut Var, a French spring classic.
In good time we came to the run site at the end of a long bridge, as the first hashers which was obvious, being a Dane and an Estonian !
Slowly other hashers turned up, the usual suspect of Brits, Irish, French, Dominican and maybe even some Spanish..all lazy wankers trying to get rid of their normal Saturday hangover !
Most of the women started dressed up as if they were going on an expedition to the North Pole, although the sun eventually seemed to win the battle with the grey skies.
Off we went along the looonnng bridge and then turned into a creek that went up, up and further up. (Spanish Fly missed taking the photograph here, ED.)
We were only four runners, Padre, PHD, Cums Quicker and myself, so we had absolutely no clue about what the heck happened among the 16-18 lame walkers ?
For the next couple of hours it went up and down in the great mountain area, that at some point reminded me about my early hashing days in Cameron Heights, north of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. But the vegetation here was not Tea, but plantages of Eucalyptus and other bushes and trees, usable in the perfume-industry to keep the rich women at the Croisette in Cannes happy.
We also passed trees covered by old car tyres….to prevent the pigs or the hashers to bite into the roots.
It was all French and very passionate. (Speak for yourself, Ed.)
Around midday the sun finally won the battle over the grey skies, and the scenic run turned into be a true pleasure.
Thirsty like hell, the runners were looking forward to the promised drink stop that finally appeared after app 13-15 kilometers...
Last two kilometers home was a “walk in the park”.
Then came the warm togetherness in the restaurant and the funny circle, which all made it a superb springtime Sunday of Hashing, and suddenly the Valentine feeling was in the air.
Thank you everybody for a great run and a great atmosphere..
Not the Nine O'clock News.
A special Valentines message from Padre;
It is with some sadness I have to report that one of the early members and influential contributors to the Riviera Hash House Harriers, Avery Double Glazing recently passed away after losing her fight against Cancer.
It was through her enthusiasm in attracting serving members of the American armed forces to the Hash for some contact with the real world, during their stay in port, that several members of the Hash were able to visit U.S. navy ships for conducted tours.
I, for one, will always remember the unique experience of being able to participate in what members of the public could only dream about.
Security issues now prohibit these events but I will be more than willing to talk to those who arrived after her involvement to inform them of whose wonderful days in which we were able to partake.
Many stories can be told. Not all suitable to publish here, but all good, clean fun. A full obituary is in the latest edition of the Riviera Reporter February/ March
Well it’s not often that the walkers have a 10k trail. Perpetual Motion not having set a trail recently was obviously doubling up on lost distance- UP being the operative word.
The first section was a challenge to cross the bridge across the lake without being blown away , the chilly wind was so strong that it converted Farty Bum, Dire Rear and Long & Hard into runners. Once over the bridge we regrouped for a head count to see if we had lost anyone. About ten attempts at counting eventually proved that we all there and numbers for eating at the restaurant were phoned through by Perpetch.
Then we took the road towards Tanneron; the welcoming notice proclaimed that it was forbidden to pick chestnuts or mimosa- the dire consequences being incarceration, a week in the village stocks or punishment at the mayor’s pleasure. As we made our way up the winding road we found the reason for the ban- the beautiful mimosa forest in full bloom. Some people could not resist gathering bunches of the forbidden fruit ( or maybe wanted to pleasure the Mayor) but as they did not receive down downs for the offence at the circle shall remain nameless but evidence may be seen on Spanish Fly’s photos on the Facebook group.
The trail was like the ascent of Everest; as we arrived at the top of an uphill section there in front of us was another summit to be scaled. Not much evidence of whether this was the correct trail to be seen; we passed several crosses and a few W s marked in flour. Differing speeds of walking had strung out the group along the trail. Those in front not knowing which way to go at various junctions at one stage found themselves at a Tarpeian Rock so turned back and took the track which was the beginning of the long descent to the main road.
Then it was a mile along the flat to Les Arbousiers where there was the beer car. Pedo was a long way behind with his Hispanic harem but fortunately he had given the car keys to Perpetual Motion . The big puzzle at the beer stop was ‘where were the runners ?’ who had not been seen at all since the start. The runners did not make it to the beer stop until three quarters of an hour later by which time the walkers, having exhausted the range of chips and nuts available and tired of waiting , had left for the last 2k back to the start.
The circle was cancelled by the L.W.B.because they were scared they would not be able to get to the restaurant in time to eat. Padre, the nominated stand in R.A. due to the absence of Cumalot, did not have a say in this as they had already left the car park by the time the runners arrived back,.
(Cumalot you will have to sort out this Unhashy mutiny when you return. We do not need precedent like this !.Ed.)
However, as is the case with all R.A.s world wide they have great power and influence and a quick word with the proprietor of the eating establishment ensured the all important, traditional, circle took place, much to the relief of the two Interhashional travelers present. (Th)e circle is more important than food. Ed
Long and Hard;
A mug inspection was carried out and all those not qualifying were given their own personal drinking vessel.
The naughty mugless one, Long and Hard, was given a humiliating Down Down from a plastic cup for not having her own ceremonial mug with her.
Hare; Perpetual Motion, with an honourable mention for setting the trail on the Saturday, going out again Sunday morning to relay the washed away trail and then accompanying the walkers on their stroll.
And for setting a record breaking, two Hash trails in one..
Spanish Fly; For making a huge detour into Canne to pick up Not the Nine O'clock News.
Padre; for mistakenly calling Spanish Fly by another Fly's name.
Sadist; for getting the words of a well known Hash song wrong. (He really should know better, Ed.)
Padre and Cums Quicker; competitive running and spreading the virus to Farty Bum, Dire Rear and Long and Hard who also had their Down Down reward.
Paedophil; for dirty talk regarding Gerunds. (Or should that be Gonads? Ed.)
Iron Lady; leaving on her world tour along with the other Bali participants, Sadist, Phd ,Padre and Spanish Fly.
Fary Bum; Calling The Duchess of Cambridge a funny name.
Virgin; Angela who was talked dirty to, in Spanish, by The Duchess.
And Shit of the Week; One nomination ................
Farty Bum for calling The Duchess strange names after she had already been warned once before.
The circle was truncated due to the needs of the catering staff and we wearily all trooped inside to enjoy our well earned Sunday Valentine's Day Lunch;
Starter from the cold buffet, Main, a choice of four or five options, Dessert,, the usual choice, Coffee and ample wine.
Then it was back home to sleep off the excess of the day.
Thanks to Perpetual Motion for all his hard work, But, considering the rain washed the trail away and he had to to mark the trail twice, one normal length trail would have been sufficient.
