Issue Nash Hash Sweden - Date 17-20 May 2007
Run 37 Island Run
The ready set go run.
Our run took place on three islands in the southern
archipelago of Gothenburg. We were supposed to start on Donsö when
arriving there with the 10.30 ferry from Saltholmen ferry terminal.
We were going from our hotel in Mölndal to Salholmen by bus and tram and
since it was a tight time shedule it was a bit stressfull to get all
Hashers to meet up in the lobby in time for the short walk to the busstop
but we made it. Standing at the busstop we saw the bus coming and it
stopped were about 20 hashers stood waiting. Then something strange
happens. The buss drives on without letting us aboard but it
stops again 100 meters ahead and we have to run to catch up
with it. So finally we are on the way. Coming in to the
city were we are supposed to take the tram we see that the number 11 tram
is already standing at the tram stop in Brunnsparken and I tell the
Hashers we must make a run for it. So ready set go but before our
bus had stopped we see the tram starting and driving away. Being the
Hare I realized that now we were getting late for the ferry. This
didnt bother the Hashers so while waiting for the next tram we had a
circle with DownDowns in Brunnsparken.
10 minutes after the next tram came and now we were
really delayed. Luckily Total Wanker and ShrimpSpew were already at
Salholmen and they persuaded the ferry captain to wait for us for five
minutes so once again it was ready set go. When arriving at the the
tramstop at Salholmen we had to run to the board. It must have been
a sight seeing twenty Hashers running onboard the ferry.
The ferry took us to Donsö and the run started in the
old fishing port. The run was set the day before in some ligt rain
but we soon noticed that our flower spots were still ok.
We ran through the narrow streets of the village over
the the otherside of the island were there is a bridge over to the next
island Styrsö. Here we ran into the woods and there was some muddy
parts on the path but it seemed ok because our young hashers Lost&Found,
Beer Birdie and Trial Walker made it through in the prams. This
muddy path took us to the first stop which was the Hashview.
Climbing up the hill was tiresome for Hashers but I hope the view was
worth it. Coming down the hill the last walkers had catched up with
the rest of us. By now people were longing for a Beerstop including
myself so when coming down into the village we had a beerstop at Bratten.
Compared to this morning we now had more time now
so when finishing our beer we went to the nearby pub for more beer.
Then we continued the run on the streets along gardens with big old
beatiful houses. Here our virgin Florence found an old fotball and
while running along the street towards Tången we were kicking this
football between us. Florence and Horny Boy showed good
footballskills. We continued over to Tången we were taking another
ferry over to the last island Brännö.
Tången was really nice with narrow streets and small
house and here we also had time for a short break before the ferry.
On Brännö the ferry came in just by "Brännö
Brygga" made famous in an old song so offcourse we stopped their for
a dance. Then we were on the trail again. The runners got a
path around the cliffs by the beach and the walkers got a shortcut over
the hill called "path of love". Being among the runners I
can not say what when on over on "path of love". Now
we were waiting for OnIn so we decided to have a Hashhold by Brännö Inn
and then follow the mainstreet acoss the Island and give the Hashers a
shortcut. Along the way here one Hasher went missing.
Finally OnIn in the garden of my collegue Agneta and family.
Thanks for letting us use their garden and to Hampus who help setting up
the beer and snacks in there bicycleshed. When starting the circle
we notice Higgins is missing. I borrow a bike and go backward on the
trail but cant find him but when going back I see him coming walking.
Higgins was hearing some noice and walked in that direction and it was the
noice of the circle he had heard. So when we came back our GM
Penis Boy and RA Queen Latifa had started with DownDowns. We
had a great time and then also our guests Higgins and Neptunus held a show
and giving out DownDowns. Will remember their underwearshow.
By now it started to rain a little but it was ok for we had fun.
Then it was time to take the boat back to Saltholmen
and since we now had time over we could go back to the hotel to change
clothes before going to African/Caribeean restaurant Simba for a
great dinner. Here we went on with some games and dancing. Our
main event was the vote for Hashking and Hashqueen and the winners were
Red Carpet and Neptunus. I guess Neptunus got many votes
wearing his great red dress and dutch cloggs.
After Simba there were some bup stops in town.
Thanks to our guests from Brussels, Amsterdam,
Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm hashes for a great day.
38 Red Dress Run
1200 hrs on Saturday it was time for the next run.
A Red Dress Run in a park called Slottskogen. Slowly the group met up at Linneplatsen dressed in various
red outfits. Today we would
also have members of the Corella Hash led by their GM Pokerdanne joining
now the morning clouds were slowly going away and we set off in the
run took us through the mainparts of the park both uphill and downhill
both on paved walkways and out in the woods.
The first two checks caused some problems. The first one above the Plikta playground made the Hashers
run all over and when finding the first spot they just continued straight
ahead. Being the Hare upfront
I let them run for a while letting the walkers catch up little.
The next check up by the animalgardens had some diffculties too
because there were about 5 ways they could take but we had marked them as
False trails so eventualy they were On again.
After hearing a wish from a Danish Hasher to see a real Elk while
in Sweden the run passed the Elks paddock.
Coming up there together with some FRB from the Corella Hash we
made a short stop, Now it was
downhill for a while going down to the Seal pond.
Then it was uphill and into the wood going up to the observation
tower. Most Hasher went up
for a nice view of Gothenburg. By
now people were waiting for a Beerstop but I had to disapoint them.
No beer until the OnIn. Downhill
again and running by the new Penguin pond
into a part of the park called Azalea valley
where OnIn was to be.
the run we were supposed to have a Barbeque in the park. It was a great sight to see all Hashers in red sitting
on the gras talking and drinking beer.
We were called to circle up and giving out DownDown began.
A big one for all the Virgins of the Corella Hash who seemed to be
made coming the same person. We had two Hashname ceremonies. First yesterdays virgin Florence who became hasher
Golden Balls. Then we
realized that Pokerdanne was not a real Hashname.
He gave himself this name so offcourse we had to give him a real
drenched in so much beer and flower that he looked more like a piece of
dough he got the name Duracell Dick.
Also today Higgins with Codpiece held a great show giving out
Downdowns. After the
circle it was time for food. We
had steaks from the grill and different of Sallads.
Sitting in the sun with food,
beer and wine it felt great. After
all the food some Hasher started playing Human Dragkamp.
Wonder what gave them that energy but they were fun to watch and we
had a great time. Great
thanks to Hurricane for grilling the meat,
to Sophia, Total Wanker and Dancing King for making the sallads.
great thank you to Jack Ass and Penis Boy for picking up food and beer and
other things for the Barbeque.
six it was time to head back to the hotel and later in the evening it was
time for a Pubcrawl. One pub
was the great Flying Barrel and Delerium with its 2000 beers. Getting in to the mood for the Hangover run was no probem
having been to these pubs.
HEADS UP FOR THE GM Penis Boy
