20150718_15203220150718_153204A good attendance of 25 hashers (19 runners 6 walkers) including 2 virgins, 3 visitors from
Azerbaïjan (Baku kennel) and 1 visitor from Japan (Osaka kennel)
Run was exactly 7 km

20150718_153212Up my Ass showed up but managed to run back up the entire run and catch
up the pack exactly at beer stop time, then he RA-ed brillantly : it was
mentioned we were not worthy

20150718_15321820150718_153256

For PH3’s 888th run, almost each hasher was given a Banco-type Gambling
scratch-ticket : a whopping 9,5 € was won, talk about lucky !

20150718_15594720150718_155947 (1)Hash sins :
– the hare insisted to start almost on time, thus the run starting at 14:20
instead of a scheduled 14:00, which was unusually not that late, let to
several troubles like Up my Ass not catching the start and several
disoriented late coming hashers which were spotted on site, helpless.
– Hairy palms did not only short-cut at some point, he short-cut the WHOLE
race
– Up my ass show up very late before catching up, but did so only by
dropping his top
– there was a lot of beer abuse and water drinking in the On In, taking the
false excuse of the scorching sun arranged by the RA

PA00079920_-_Sainte-Chapelle_du_Château_de_Vincennes_(gargouille)Experienced Hashers could argue Château de Vincennes is a quite conventional venue but this edition was a special one combining usual trail finding and map orienteering . A magnetic compass would have been probably useful if we had knew before !

To get to the starting circle was the first challenge as there was none and three different addresses indicated : default address map on Meetup, right instructions on the PH3 web site and additional instructions from the hare to meet at drawbridge.

Most of you passed the test , except Just Xavier who joined us too late for the running pack, and the GM announced the further challenge of the day.

Our Hare Ossama bin Hashin’ , who laid the trail the day before had an unplanned travel and only left a map and some instructions to the Anarchist .

So a good turnout of 13 hashers with two visitors from Sweden on a hash tour Just Amanda and Just Johanna, Crack Climber from Montana and some Meetup new recruits Just Olivier and Just Jonathan from Manchester decided to take  it up .

 

Ossama Bin Hidin’ pretended the trail was well laid with 2kg of flour for 13k where the usual average should be between 6 to 8kg for this distance , but confessed unspotted change of directions and missing flour in some parts .

The less adventurous took the map for a gentle walk , led by visiting GM from Sans Clue Hidden Asset , at least Sleeping Sex would not be responsible this time from missing the beer stop ! Anyway we miss you .

20150314_14480720150314_145031The wildest followed the GM to the drawbridge to start the trail . We were supposed to find some flour left of the castle but we had to go to Parc Floral, 1k from the start to find the first flour signs , which raised the enthusiasm of the pack.

And we entered the alleys of Bois de Vincennes .

We thought the absence of flour at the beginning was just a bad souvenir but rapidly we lost the trail.

The Anarchist had a magic card , the trail map and the jog tracker live map , so to reorient the pack in the good direction.

Sparkle was caring of Twinkle to avoid a search rescue in this confusing trail.

 

Then the FRB Just Jo, Just Olivier and Sex Tourist took command of the pack.

 

20150314_14583520150314_152129We passed the horse’s club , the first clue given by the missing hare and rapidly found the second clue the homeless shelter .

20150314_150251Between the two we were urged to breath and walk , and Naughty Ways was ok with this idea.

20150314_150528We were then looping around close to Lake Daumesnil and decided to reach the lake for the 3rd clue the Buddhist temple and we found the trail but in the opposite direction and had to go backwards and rapidly get lost by looping a 2nd time close to the lake.

 

My jogtracker map can confirm as it was looking like a “pâté” drawing .  The Sparkle used his inherited Maori sense of orientation as even the GM was lost on reading the map !

 

We lost anyway Socks and Roses and later Running Commentary but were below the accepted loss rate so we decided to continue and just had the courtesy to indicate the beer stop venue.

20150314_155756Finally Running Commentary was the first to reach the beer stop, followed by the walkers who had also to loop around and last but not least by the brave hashers craving for beer .

Then it was time to leave the walkers to their destiny while the remaining pack of runners took the walker’s trail reverse and got lost again at the lake de St Mande , calling for rescue to the GM.

 

After regrouping we headed in direction of the Château , ignoring the walking trail and were looking for the gargoyles ( see 1st picture ) we found on The Sainte Chapelle roof.

And back to the start for the On In Circle where Sparkle our returning RA of the day took command of the circle .

The GM was called in the middle to replace the missing hare Obama Bin Hashin.

20150314_17131020150314_171044 We honoured our Swedish blonde visitors Just Amanda and Just Johanna , Crack Climber apparently delighted from his romantic walk, our two new virgins Just Jo and Just Olivier , who actually were also FRBs , quite a good start , chaperoned by Sex Tourist.

Socks find also his way back as official DFL  and Egg spurt punished for his very late coming .

A snoring (male ? ) version of the hash hymn concluded the circle .

 

It was party time for some more beer drinking and snacking.

After these 4 hours experience, part of the pack decided it was too short to leave and joined a pub for an On after.

Thanks Ossama for disorganising this, it was perfect !

This memorable journey in the 13th arrondissement started by a 20150228_093918Qi Gong demonstration in the Parc de Choisy where I hid the beers for the beer stop.

 

It continued by trail setting in the sunshine for the next 13 k and was followed by a Chicken Imperial with soya and peanuts sauce, served with rice noodles and Jasmine tea to recover before the circle.

 

10 hashers including the hare were present , 4 walkers and 6 runners , most of you new to the Paris Hash or long term returnees and thanks to Meetup referrals .

 

I am making a plea to experienced Paris or Sans Clue hashers  . Those new recruits need proper education in flour sniffing, singing, and drinking !

 

The hare “The Anarchist” gave the usual instructions . Sleeping Sex was denied the right to hold the map and Just Lindsay took command of the walkers group, chaperoning a young couple Lexa and Just Antoine .

20150228_142220

The runners were led by Dirty Rags from Guangdong who was eager to discover a city run , quite different from his usual trails in the the jungle forest with false trails leading to nowhere.

 

Ossama being Hashing , a long term returnee from Paris hash , only 6 years pause without remorse …………., was already finding his marks and organising the first check point searches demonstrating his ability to delegate for finding the false trails .

 

 

20150228_142541Dirty Rags was already on his way for the first check back, which all the pack enjoyed to discover the nice houses in the alley close to Parc Montsouris.

Just Vlad aka Shitty Pants from Romania was already demonstrating his ability for walking the running trail .

20150228_144406He found a chatting partner Socks and Roses for the next 12 k …….

 

We rapidly ran across the boulevard for a discovery of the gardens of the “Cite Internationale universitaire ”

 

20150228_144725

Socks and Roses ankles began to suffer from hip pain and he requisitioned the scooter of Ossama’s son

 

 

20150228_14522320150228_145031We reached the Charlety stadium for a gentle training session around the tracks .

and had a group picture at the first hash view .

 

The next kms were stretching the pack between the FRB Dirty Rags and the chatting DFL Chitty Pants and Socks and Roses .

 

Just before arriving at Porte de Choisy , the pack dismantled  . The hare, caring for the DFL, lost sight of the upfront squad .

 

They had plenty of time to discover the crowdy shopping malls of China Town and get lost underneath the buildings of the Olympiades esplanade .

20150228_161341

 

The hare desperately20150228_154122 tried to locate them and had to go back and forth and was resigned to have lost enthusiastic hashers transformed into dim suns or sushis ….

 

The Anarchist  reached the beer stop and find the first survivor Dirty Rags . The walkers had found the beer , Socks and Roses managed clip clopping to reach the pack and by the miracle of internet the rest of the pack called the GM for rescue .

 

After a few beers , we finished the last park of the trail exploring the charming strets of La butte aux cailles and after the last stairs , the parc Montsouris was in sight for the final circle .

 

Ossama B H  did his best as RA for the day and promised he will learn a hash song everyday for the next run !

 

The prize for late comers was given to Saving Ryan’s private and his half who managed to find the trail alone , the beer stop without beer and up towards the circle . Hurrah for these determined hashers and for the hare who laid the trail .

 

The hash hymn concluded this superb day .

 

20150228_162807On On and Happy New Year of the Goat .

20150131_143246The first challenge was to reach the square des Abbesses by car with the beer load  as 1.30 pm is the local hour to pick up garbage in the tiny streets of Montmartre .

 

 

Second challenge was to find a parking place and Just Laurent had the right eye in a small dead end passage.

 

20150131_143309Last challenge was to understand what we thought the confused instructions of the Hare ( see picture ) , before he scribed the flour signs on the ground.

 

In fact The Anarchist liked the inscription with the lady : ” Aimer c’est du desordre …alors aimons !

 

 

 

 

Up My ass , the hare, was quite jovial from his trail setting in the sunshine this morning and was eager to let us discover this picturesque part of Paris.

20150131_14383720150131_144023

 

 

And off we went and after a few meters on the paved streets gently going up, we knew that we will have to deserve the promised beer stop.

 

You will notice the difference in pace and face expression throughout the trail.

 

 

At the beginning Labib was running the stairs two by two and the pack was beginning to spread .

20150131_144032We arrived at the famous place du Tertre shouting On On while looping around the artists.

20150131_144509

 

 

Little Red was not that far .

 

 

The pack did not exist any longer and we had plenty of time to take pictures of the boutiques .

 

20150131_14462020150131_145306Finally we made our way down for a while for a super check at the Lapin Agile.

The hare was eye looking at Mabouche who honoured the Paris hash with her presence, just landing from hot Brasil to cool Paris .

 

I decided to loose my self in dead end trail with cute houses while the regrouped pack was already climbing the next stairs.

20150131_15024720150131_150303I saw the BN sign and signs of fatigue were seen on the faces , fortunately there were benches for the elder !

 

The harriettes had a chance to catch up : Sleeping Sex, Naughty ways and Little Red.

 

 

After a couple of beers and munchies the hare reminded us we have not visited the Sacre Coeur yet .

20150131_152753

 

 

We first ran across the shopping streets and had to climb some more stairs .

 

 

20150131_15354620150131_154929Sex Tourist was in a good shape as usual and was taunting us on top of the stairs , chatting with What’s His name who had a long shortcut.

 

We enjoyed the great view on the roofs of Paris and were waiting for the ladies who never showed off and prefferred to short cut to the On In , escaping the last stairs.

 

 

The only Harriette who survived this epic run was Little Red who could barely walk up the stairs .

 

And we made it to the On In at square des abbesses where our RA of the day Mabouche did her best to animate the circle but pouring half frozen rain gave the start to run to the On After bar at Prohibido .

20150131_171558Thanks for this superb run Up My ass we will remember . And if you want more go to Sans Clue next Sunday , you will do it anti clockwise !

 

On On

NB : We need a hare for next run , a special Valentine run , dress code will be pink or red, hearts and love kisses ! Suggested venue in Bois de Boulogne Porte d’Auteuil.

A bright sunshine , look at the hare Sex Tourist and Saving  20150117_142600Ryan’s private short pants and Just Jean Marie in short sleeves T shirt , and the hashers turn in numbers . ….

 

The Us citizens were well represented with Just Andrew just escaped from Fort Alamo San Antonio Texas, Lexa from New Jersey, Just Margo moving from NYC to La Muette, and Up My Ass now becoming a regular and chaperoned by Running Commentary .

 

There was also a young couple Jean Marie obviously French and Grace from China Hash Taipeh . 3rd time in a row we have Taiwanese harriettes , just to point out we miss you Seven !!!!

 

mapJust Laurent arrived on his motorbike to remember the good old days from Malaysia hashes.

 

Sex Tourist gave us the instructions for this refreshing running trail in this posh area while Naughty Ways was reading the map instructions for Just Margo.

20150117_143943

 

And off we went along the neat boulevards but rapidly we left the good 17 th for the more popular zone around Porte de Clichy.

 

 

20150117_144000We had a couple of hash views like this smiley one for he kids and this other one for grown up adults, I confess approximate English but we are in France .

 

 

20150117_14471520150117_144725Then we entered the Parc Clichy and The Anarchist following FRBs Up My Ass and Saving Ryan’s private had enough time to take pictures of the stretched pack led by Sex Tourist followed by Running Commentary,  Just Laurent and Just Lexa .

 

20150117_144733Cute grace  was closing the trail but seemed to enjoy a lot .

20150117_145123It was high time to have a little rest and have a group picture .

 

 

Look at these smiling faces. Hash is really good for you !

 

 

 

20150117_145501Then the Anarchist gave the sign and escaped the pack , climbing over gates

and rapidly finding a 1st Beer Near sign , followed by a second one and we entered the famous “Square des Batignolles” .

 

We could not find a better place with this “jardin à l’anglaise” for a British hare .

20150117_15045720150117_151120

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saving R P was the fastest to find the beer and we enjoyed this well deserved pause, long enough for very late coming Sleeping Sex to join us , coming out from her hibernation period ( good news spring is coming …)

 

20150117_15312920150117_153411

 

And back again to the posh area with typical French boutique ” Cuisse de grenouille ”

 

but we cannot desperate totally from this arrondissement as apparently they have beer connoisseurs.

20150117_15415520150117_154421The hare tried desperately to fool us by leading us in the opposite direction to Parc Montceau , do a big loop and back to Parc Montceau again , for romantic pictures .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

20150117_154632FRBs decided it should come to an end but we had first to honour our mascot of the day posing in front of the French Pagoda for a typical souvenir of Paris !!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

20150117_16194320150117_161806And Up My ass did his first appearance as RA of of the PH3 and did pretty well .  The On In circle was warm at ST and NW place .

 

 

Visitors were honoured, new comers welcomed, long term returnees blamed for their invalid excuses and the long series of punishments started from FRB Saving R P, DFL Just Andrew,  Short  cutting bastard Just laurent, Sex on the hash from Jean Marie and Grace, very late coming Sleeping Sex and so on.

 

20150117_16444120150117_164454The hash hymn concluded the circle and the pack had an urgent crave for potatoes layered with cream, cheese and home-made Chili con Carne ( hurrah for Naughty Ways ) , beer was sponsored by Sans Clue H3 ( Thanks ! !).

 

May we keep this festive atmosphere throughout coming runs .

 

By the way we need inspired hares . Please apply to Sleeping sex sleepingsex@hotmail.com

Run 874 Villejuif

happy-new-beer_designThe Paris Hash House growing community loudly celebrated the Hashy New Year 2015 with this Run 874 set in Villejuif .

 

Our Hare Labib prepared quite a long >10k trail with only 3 check points , no check backs and in spite of the fact he did it twice , the cold drizzle nearly washed out the beginning of the trail !

 

So the Hash instructions were rather quick at the start but the departure was postponed waiting for Slack Mac , fighting with his GPS on one hand , a beer on the other hand to find the Hash circle , so that the GM democratically decided on his own that Slack would catch up at the beer stop with his Slack mobile.

 

ih3logo         Summit_HHH_logo A macho pack comprised of only one regular Sex Tourist, visitors Wild Thing from NY Ithaca Hash House harriers, Up My Ass from New Jersey Summit H3 , now relocated in Paris , who promised to attend regularly, a long term returnee Can’t get it up who signed for a 3 Haring runs for his repentance, a virgin Just Stephane.

 

Fortunately Little Red our Bouffe meister of the day was not the only harriette, as Psycho Bitch from Hell made a remarked apparition by the runners pack.

20150103_151312Then we started to follow the hare to point in the right direction and I confess I did not paid attention to the constant change of directions and long running trails , focused on chatting with the ladies at the back, GM’s privilege !

20150103_151325

The drizzle , the rain, gusty winds , the cold ……. but we were all brave and finally reached the Parc de la Roseraie at L’Hay les Roses, but no roses , we need to come back in Spring there, where we had the long awaited beer stop after the first or was it second check point and 6 k only !

 

Slack Mac finally joined us and deserved his beer , after accepting beeing our RA and the drizzle stopped, and a bright interval encouraged the pack for the second loop.

 

20150103_15461220150103_154623A couple of long streets and we reached” le parc des hautes  bruyeres”. This run was decidedly too flat so Up my Ass , followed by the Anarchist climbed up the only hill , while Can’t get it up was miserably slipping in the shiggy .

20150103_164038(0)

 

Only 2 k more and the On In circle appeared.

 

 

We celebrated the hare Labib for this challenging run and Little Red for the home made Tagines .

 

 

 

Slack Mac took command of the circle

20150103_163036(0)20150103_163827As promised the GM opened a bottle of champagne and most of the runners were volunteering to admit their crimes to get a chance for having a sip of this precious liquid .

 

The Hash Hymn concluded the ceremony and we enjoyed the tagines , cheese and wine .

 

A good start for this hashy new year 2015.

Run 873 Chatillon

20141220_141711 mapMost of us inaugurated the brand new Tram line 6 from Chatillon Montrouge to get to the PH3 circle where our hares Egg Spurt and Sparkle welcomed us .

 

We had a visiting RA from Saigon Kennel , Katoyboy and a charming fellow from Taipeh Psycho B….. Hell who were introduced to the assembly by the GM .

 

We all felt at this moment the Paris Hash was still the attraction center of Asia and decide to spend a nice moment together , leaving to others the late Christmas shopping hassle …..

20141220_142826(0) As you know with Egg Spurt you can expect quite a long trail , imagine with a co Hare , that was the beginning of a long but very pleasant run in several parks of Chatillon , Bagneux .

20141220_143238The Anarchist was in a good shape, enough to take pictures and visit the nice surroundings.

 

Up to a mole to benefit from a splendid hash view and watching the hashers nearly suffocating at climbing the hill , but so delighted to make it through.

 

After a big circle around the military compound where Egg Spurt confessed he was a badminton fan , between office hours,

 

20141220_144619We ran along vineyards and we finally reached the beer stop sign.

 

In the usual 30s delay the GM located the beer pack well hidden in the bushes .

20141220_145647

 

After a few beers we had enough calories to finish the 2nd half and after some zigzaging in the strets, Psycho B….. and the GM disappeared from the sight of the rest of the pack .

 

 

We reached the tram line and the On In sign was hopefully there .

Ten minutes later the circle was in place and a very warmful session started near the Christmas trees .

 

20141220_164149Handsome looking Beer meister who promised to repopulate the PH3 community with Taiwanese fellows .

Our visiting RA Katoyboy honoured the two hares who did a good trail and the GM for the two visitors . After usual punishments for SCBs , FRB,  and so forth the hash Hymn concluded the circle .

Time for more beer , pate , cheese and delicious macaroons.

On On
