Under gray (but dry) skies, a small group of six runners and one walker met amid the dregs of the Saturday market at the Telegraph Metro. Because of the market stalls hiding the first marks on the trail, the Hare had to indicate the start of the trail (other marks were obliterated by the very efficient Paris sidewalk washers and various gluten haters, to which explanation, Hot Climax, visiting from Berlin, replied with a rousing chorus of “Bull sh*t, “).
The runners negotiated several check points (unfortunately, none were boob checks, since Hot Climax consistently let the other runners do checking), to get to the Hash View at the Parc de Bellville. By this point, Socks and Roses, who was suffering from back problems, was following the walkers’ trail (strangely alone).
The trail then wound its way through the Parc, and down a slide (which was not very slippery for adults), around several squares and churches, over a piece of the old petit periph railroad, to the beer stop. After an appropriately long stop, the assembled hashers each decided to drink (rather than carry) a second beer.
Just then, Sleeping Sex (the lone true walker) arrived, claiming she had been waiting above the beer stop square (which had been clearly marked on her map). Fortunately for her, Hot Climax, in true lady like fashion, gave up her second brew.
The runners then set off again, winding past Pellport, to the Parc Fleuri, and an adjacent parc built over the periph (highway, this time). The return wound its way through the Place Saint Fargeau, to the Hash Flash (where the runners were literally climbing the walls), and then to the ON IN.
After waiting a reasonable time for Socks and Roses, RA Egg Spurt called the circle. Visitors Hot Climax and Just Drice, and returnees Egg Spurt and Wandering Two Lips, were duly recognized. The hare, Running Commentary was faulted for the missing trail marks. Sleeping Sex was cited for showing up late for the beer stop (but not for apparently having taken the Metro to get there). Just Drice and Wandering Two Lips were recognized as FRBs.
Announcements included the hash gala on December 13, and Hot Climax’s invitation, as the GM of her Berlin Hash, to the Nash Hash in Berlin next summer (to feature three levels of trail, including a 30 km ballbuster). The circle ended with the hash hymn, just as Socks and Roses, who got lost on the ON IN, arrived (thus missing out on his Dead F*cking Last designation).
