Hares : King Crapper & Old Wreck
Scribe : Hose Handler
It was a blistering hot day & there was a motley crew of "keen" hashers at Derekoy waiting for 3pm (new time for the summer) So the GM called the circle together & promptly gave a down down to the FRB from the last hash & of course it was Lightfoot by name & Lightfoot by nature as quick as a whippet!! Then the hares were called in, King Crapper & Old Wreck were the hares & they said "It will be a flat short run" & no prickly bushes!!! There was a short cut for the walkers & a pretty "run" for the runners!!
So "On On" was called & we were off straight into some rather handsome camels if I say so myself!! So King Crapper gave us a "hint" the run that the run was not that way, so up we went into the hills & countryside with views all round very lovely it was to, then we went into the old hashers favourite thing yes you guessed it the dry riverbed yipee came the call as we "ran " gingerly through one riverbed & straight into another but this one had some wet stuff in it so that made it a bit more interesting. We all battled on for a few more kms enjoying the run & then out of nowhere King Crapper "popped" up & guided the walkers back into the On In, & he guided us runners to the right & yes you guessed it through riverbeds & then we started to go up & up & up, with Fishy Fingers, Doggystyle, & Pias husband in front of me through the very PRICKLY bushes all we heard was a few choice words coming from them & then apologising for swearing, but if the truth be told by heck there was some proper sharp thorns & bushes about & a lot seemed to be stabbing us, but when we got to the top we were rewarded to a fantastic 360 degrees view well worth the pain, but as they say "No pain no gain". Then it was a nice amble down the hill & a rewarding sign of the old ON IN a pleasure to see by all.
Then as we got back we waited for the last of the runners & the GM called the circle together under some lovely shady trees & the first ones he called were the Hares so KC & OW were called in & given a down down for a great hash we all enjoyed it plenty of views & PLENTY of very prickly bushes!! Well done. Then the GM called in Pias husband into the circle for being a virgin hasher well done to him, but Pia did "help" him to remove him cap whilst in the circle so a down down was given to her for helping her Husband.
In came the RA to give a few down downs, First there was a down down for Butt Butt for a teapot, then we called in Pia for she has not been named yet so we asked her for a "quick" run down of her life & all I can remember was some obscure cartoon girl called Pippi Longstockings (God knows who that is?) So we gave her a down down for miss naming Virgin.
Then a Down Down was given to Butt Butt for miss use of hash equipment fanning her BBQ fire with the fantastic new hash signs!!
We had a few more down downs then the circle was called to a close by the RA & so the BBQs went to full tilt with Lovejoy doing his & Culture Vulture firing up his BBQ as well but me thinks that KC & OW had the best idea a gas BBQ looking good you two!!
Thanks for a great hash.
See you all in August.

Lovely day for a Hash in Yalikavak. We all met at Noddy and Barrel's place at the appointed time (more about appointed time's later!), after a bit of hash-cashing and hash-chatting we formed a circle.
We welcomed visitors, virgins and returnees, heard absolutely nothing of interest from the Hares who just confused us with the alphabet, the GM talked about the successful wedding hash, we gave Lightfoot his just desserts and thanked King Crapper for sorting out the new signs and then. ....got back into our vehicles! Our convoy of two trucks with happy hashers crammed into the back and a car made it's way to the start of the run at point A...or was it B??
The route was not without it's challenges. Mountain goats would have been very comfortable cavorting on the steep rocky outcrops and then could have been dinner for the two ferocious sounding big dogs at the bottom. As it was we tripped and slid our way down, narrowly missing being dinner for the dogs and reached the road safely, except maybe Shitter who once again took a fall – probably on this part of the route. The rest of the route was straight forward with some lovely views and a section by the beach, some of us went slightly off course but local knowledge kept us in the right direction for whatever point we were heading for!
All rendezvoused back at Noddy and Barrel's place, some took to the pool – others the shade and
most to the beer! The circle was called and downs downs were awarded.....in no particular order of merit.....the hares were called in to be told what a dreadful run it was, another welcome to visitors from Aberdeen - High Maintenance and Muff Diver also Thomaz and Elisabeth who I think were friends of Lightfoot and then returnees, Mike and Pia. Lightfoot got a down down for not explaining the hat rule, Shitter got awarded the helmet and a down down for his clumsiness on the trail – yet again. Muffin Muncher just had to sit in the circle and got a down down for this breach of rules
but then further defiance followed in the form of tea-potting and wearing pink got her another down down.
The big issue of the afternoon presented by Culture Vulture was the time of the summer Hashes . Normally they move to 5pm for June/July/August. It was said that the difference in temperature is a minor 2 degrees and that it gets tricky getting bookings/good service in restaurants during the busier time of the evening. So it was suggested we stayed at 2pm. LuvJoy said that we should have beach barbecues instead of going to restaurants after the summer Hashes and I think suggested 4pm starts. After some shouting out and voting, it was agreed that we would start at 3pm. It was also agreed that barbecues were a good idea and LuvJoy was appointed Barbe-Meister (although according to spell-checker this is Babe-Meister which he just might prefer!).
The Aberdeen Hash-visitors got tested on our Hash names, which would have been difficult enough but some – no names mentioned – forgot their own hash names.....down downs ensued! Finally I remember a down down for those with no mugs. Apologies for any omissions but there you go!
