Hash 854 9 September 2017: Red Dress Hash

10/09-2017 | No comments yet

34 Hashers & 2 dogs (Coffee & Cookie) participated in the annual Red Dress Hash, in aid of the most deserving Bombeiros Voluntários, which saw participants assembling at the public car park close to the old Cascais Bullring. Hashers were unmistakable in their red attire, many of the men competing more fiercely than the opposite sex to look all the more alluring. Before departing on their live Hash, Hare Depth Charge explained the markings to newcomers then he & his fellow Hare, Master Chef, departed to set Cascais ablaze with their respective Rambos & Wimps trails.

Some minutes later, the pack set off to find the routes & were immediately confused by markings that appeared to be sending Hashers in a continuous loop. Thanks to Flying Mum’s sister, who was lurking in the vicinity, we were directed onto the trail which sent us down Av 25de Abril & Wimps directly into the heart of Cascais, Rambos taking the first of their loops before arriving there.

An optional beer stop had been arranged in Cascais square, where some Hashers quenched their thirst. The route then headed towards Cascais Marina & along the ciclovia towards Boco do Inferno. En route, some of us were entertained by a marching band, complete with bagpipe players which emerged from Park Marechal Carmona & crossed into the marina. Rambos caught up with Wimps near the Boco market, after which we turned inland to approach Eurostars Cascais Hotel before accessing the car park by a pedestrian only access.

While one notable Hasher, in particular, had completed a token route then waited patiently for the pack to return to the start, the remainder made it back within a reasonable time of each other, allowing for some convivial socializing before HM Wrecking Ball opened the circle.

Hares: First up were the Hares, to whom appreciation was duly acknowledged with a customary down-down. Visitors form Perth, Australia Brave Fart (via Milngavie, Scotland) & Megan Clark were welcomed before it was the turn for Virgins to LH3: Cristiano Matos & Gabriela Prada (aka Eagel Leaver & Dracula does Prada from Luanda H3).

Retornados & birthdays: Next it was the turn of Retornados: Finnking, Miss Google, Suck my Air, Wrecking Ball, Olgita Edmeades, Johan Lundberg, João-Maria Pinto Marques, Catarina Pinto Marques & Christopher Tilly. Following them came Hash birthdays, namely: Boomerang 360, Flying Mum 181, Graphic Exposure 44, King Vassa 33, Lucky 7 21, Miss Google 15, Not in Charge 242, Suck my Air 10, Wrecking Ball 22 & Christopher Tilly 5.

Sexy Purse Contest: Eventually, it was time for the contest to select the most attractively-attired male Hasher, Wrecking Ball absenting himself from the competition to direct the voting. Depth Charge, Bad Hare Day, King Vassa, Master Chef & Cristiano Matos were among the contenders. King Vassa was acclaimed the outright winner & the recipient of the Sexy Purse. Depth Charge was heard to grumble that he’d never won it, despite his sexy bra, thong & garter. Perhaps he was simply jealous that his mother had been the first Hasher to be awarded the coveted prize!

Unexpectedly to her, in a reviravolta, an extraordinary special award to enhance male prowess was presented, not to one of the male Hashers, but Not in Charge who had been responsible for its procurement. Hares were solicited for the next Hash & an away Hash in Tomar/Constancia (20-22 Oct) was announced. Bad Hare Day & the Charges (Not In & Depth) must be acknowledged for their substitute Beer Meister duties once again, especially the red-themed refreshments & snacks (sangria, water-melon & lollipops) purchased by Not in Charge.

Hash Report 853 – 26 August 2017

09/09-2017 | No comments yet

Hares and Trail: Fifty Four hashers came to enjoy the trail set by virgin Hares Go Commando, Crazy Base, Ringo and La Crappeuse.  The extended team was essential as Go Commando was working with one arm in a sling – apparently a biking accident was responsible.  Happily La Crappeuse did not eat the flour trail on her way round, as is the habit of many hash hounds.  The ably set trail, with three Rambo loops, took hashers around the Guincho area and allowed everyone the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent views of Cascais wonderful coastline.  Some even stopped on the way to take in the view (see Misdemeanours).

The Hash Circle was ably overseen by stand in Hash Master, Oval.

Visitors to LH3:  Lesbie Friends, Slippery Punt Thomas Murray and Not Half Bad.  According to Boomerang, our unofficial hash archivist, “our visitor from Madrid at yesterday’s hash, Not Half Bad, aka Malachy Murphy, had his first hash with LH3 on 3 Jul 1993 (Hash #163), and his last on 11 Sep 1993 (Hash #168), with a total of 5 runs. Hence, yesterday was his 6th run with LH3 and he should have been named! Also, during his time with LH3, he must have first met our No Moor (virgin on Hash #167) and Bardess (virgin on Hash #168)”.

Virgins:.Erica Walker, Jasmine Walker, Jake Walker, Matt Walker and David Farrell.  We hope you all walk or run with LH3 again soon.

Retornados: Annabel Everett, Helena Everett, Michael Everett, Coco Everett, Ben Everett, Amanda Purdon, Breastroker, Rarely Cums, Sassie Lassie, What A Banker, Gary Brown, Ginnelle Elliott, Pippa Elliott Sawyer and Maggie Elliott Sawyer.

 

Birthdays: Also Ran 85, Bad Hare Day 272, Bardess 540, Lock and Load 11, Loose Cannon 10, Lucky Seven 20, Master Chef 66, Not Tonight 123, Path Finder 11, Pilot Light 55, Rarely Cums 10 and Rebound 11.

No Name Michael Everett.

Misdemeanours: Amongst many who were seen to break hash rules (but there are no rules I hear you shout!), Lesbie Friends was punished for peeing whilst on the trail!  Doesn’t seem fair to do this to a visiting hasher.  Depth Charge and Pilot Light ignored the carefully laid flour trail and short-cutted to join the Wimps.  Were they feeling lonely?  Several other hashers, who will not be named to save them from embarrassment, were seen sipping afternoon tea at the Cresmina Dunes Café instead of being out on the trail.  Surely a misdemeanour of the highest order.

Thanks: to stand in Beermeister, Bad Hare Day who was ably assisted by Party Pants.  Oval for being Hash Master for the day.  Graphic Exposure and Breastroker for taking fabulous photos and sharing them on the LH3 Facebook page – take a look.

 

Next Hash: Red Dress Hash.  Wear a red dress and prepare to be seen.  Prizes for the best dressed hashers.  All proceeds going to Bombeiros Voluntários.  Look out for details on the web page and Facebook.

15/08-2017 | Comments Off on Hash Report #852 – August 12th, 2017

48 Hashers turned up to enjoy the “Jurassic” trail excellently set by our hares; Pilot Light and Out of Gas.

Hash 852 kicked off from Adraga Beach carpark with a rather demanding sandy hill climb to start the route which led to stunning views of the beach, ocean and Sintra hills. The 10km Rambo and 6km Wimp trail took in Praia Grande, a popular surfing beach on the western edge of the Serra de Sintra national park, and led us up the hill, past Europe’s largest salt water swimming pool, and along the coast line cliffs to see the most amazing fossilized dinosaur foot prints.

Whilst the Rambo’s completed their 3 loops and Wimps navigated the Colares countryside, Hash Griller Rebound and his able assistants, Lock ‘N’ Load, Pathfinder, Loose Cannon & Great Guns prepared a meat fest BBQ on the beach for our return, which was appropriately recognised with a new hash rendition of “We’ll Meet (Meat get it?) Again!  Thanks so much to all the Rebound family for this tasty Burgers & Sausages, and to Beer Mersisters, Blue Balls and Zoom for the generous provision of beer and wines, despite your bad backs!

Thanks to Pilot Light, who took on the additional responsibility of Hash Master for the occasion, Roaming Queen  as Hash Cash and Hoochie Coochie Man stood in as Religious Advisor.

Visitors to LH3: Happy Ending and Billy Elliot from the French Riviera Hash joined us for their first Portuguese hash experience.

Virgins: 9 Virgins were welcomed to the hash Fergus and Rory McKay sons of Crude Celt. Scholes family, Phil (brother of Caroline..wife of Crude Celt) his wife Linda and children Tiegan and Freya, Jan Chris Plieger, Marine Banchery & Christian Yarwoo

The next Hash will be Saturday August 26th 2017

Hash Report #851 – July 29th, 2017

01/08-2017 | Comments Off on Hash Report #851 – July 29th, 2017

Hash 851 started from Capuchos Car Park. Most of us had left a very sunny and hot Cascais to the low cloud, cool & slightly damp climate of the Sintra hills to complete the excellent trail that our Hares; Depth Charge and Boomerang set for us.

A great turnout of 66 Wimps and Rambo’s completed the routes which comprised of 6 (and a bit) km loop for Wimps and toddlers and a 10.5km trail for the Rambo’s. The Hares thoughtfully included a choice of 3 additional loops as part of the Rambo route which gave those faster paced Wimps the opportunity to increase their step count for the day.

Whilst the Rambo trial was set to be 10.5km most of us running did considerably more due to the sneaky back tracks that were laid, but it did ensure the pack (mostly) stayed together.

Oval kindly acted as Hash Master for the circle, special thanks and recognition was given to two new volunteers; Rebound as Hash Griller and Lucky 7 as Hash Trash.

Virgins: 8 Virgins were welcomed: Colette Gilmour, Paddy Forbutt, Miriam Renzi, Ricardo Renzi, Theo Northcliff, Freddy Northcliff, Ruth Gilligan & Alexander Gitner.

Retornados:  Baronetta, Anna Goodwin, Chris Northcliff, Also Ran, Foxy Finn Mag Missile, Hole in One, King Vasa, Not Tonight & Oval

Birthdays: B P (15), Captain America (80), Can Can (11) G String (28) Hoochie Coochie Man (151) King Vasa (30) Not In Charge (240) & Sunflower (80)

Namings: The Murphy tribe which consisted of Kian Murphy, father of Attie & Teaghan were named together with their loyal dog Millie. Kian, a Royal Marine by profession was after some debate named Go Commando (There was quite a lot of discussion about Marines and ladies underwear  … apparently RM are notorious for having a fetish for Janet Reger lacy garments!) Foxy Finn Mag Missile, a good friend of Attie & Teaghan helped the naming process with his additional knowledge of their extracurricular activities, mostly music and band practice related so in future Attie will be known as Crazy Bass & Teaghan an enthusiastic drummer as Ringo.  Millie the dog due to her French heritage has the hash name of La Crappeuse.

Misdemeanours: Nothing of significance was reported.

We need Hares for future Hashes, please contact Pilot Light if you are interested in setting a Hash Trail, if you are new to this, don’t worry we will pair you up with an experienced Hare but if we don’t get volunteers to set a trail there will be no Hash.

The next Hash will be Saturday August 12th, 2017

Forty Eight hashers participated in Hash #850 which was set in the Sintra countryside by hares of the day Pilot light and Rebound and assisted by apprentice hares Lock N Load and his brother Path Finder.

Starting from Mulha Dam, a steep trail with a variety of stunning hash view points and passages of shade to give light relief from the 29 degree heat was set, providing 3 loops to total 12km for Rambo’s and 6km for Wimps.

No Moor did a sterling job as acting Hash Master, and new Beer Meister Blue Balls delighted hashers with providing Pimms and Lemonade in abundance.

Depth Charge in his capacity as RA welcomed visiting Hasher, Babby Dick aka Spaceman who currently lives in Berlin, originates from Taiwan and is visiting Lisbon to attend a work related conference.

Virgins: 9 Virgins were introduced to the Hash, mostly recruited by Miss Google: Johan Lundbeig, Wiley Lundquist, Jaques Peziel, Barney Hampson, Suzanne Hampson, Felix Hampson, Jasper Hampson, Gunilla Jeppsson, & Peter Jeppsson.

Retornados:  Can Can, BP, Charlie, Bardess, Captain America, Fast Finnish, Innerknickers, Lord Egg, Miss Google, Suck My Air, Sonny Le Master, Caroline McKay

Namings: Sonny Le Master, who is US Military Airforce, and an experienced pilot of several different aircraft including KT 121’s (Of which I know very little about) was named “Tanka Wanka”

Misdemeanours: A group of Wimp hashers, who were not paying sufficient attention to the markings, had to be rescued by the hares and bought back to the correct route, all hashers safely accounted for!.

The next Hash will be Saturday July 29th

Canada Day Hash

On July 1st Canada celebrates the day Nova Scotia & New Brunswick, Ontario (then Upper Canada) & Quebec (then lower Canada) came together in 1867. The rest of the provinces soon followed suit, and in true LH3 style if there is anything to celebrate we will join in!

Our native Canadians Moose Grip, Fallen Maple and Moose Milk opened up their home and garden for an On On Burger Feast to honour their country’s special day, but before burgers and beer could be consumed the 66 hashers had to complete the rural trail that our hares had set.

Wreaking Ball and Crude Celt did a great job setting 3 loops for Rambo’s to give them an 11k challenge and a respectable and hilly 7k trail for the Wimps. Most of the hashers completed the routes without incident but there was a short trip to A & E for one of the Aboud Boys who suffered a nasty gash to his knee but all is fine, and there was a rumour that one Wimp called a taxi to get herself back for the circle or was it for the delicious homemade Moose Milk made by Moose Grip.

Hashers like the Canadians like their beer, in fact there was a close emergency when stocks nearly ran out but thanks to Not in Charge and Corkscrew with a quick dash to the supermarket ensured everyone stayed hydrated!

Virgins: 13 Virgins were welcomed, mostly of Canadian nationality but not all: Audrey Willet, Miles Leggett, Marvin Scott, Trish Scott, Julie Serran, Yurah Robidas, Angela Guettler, Ayesha Lobo, Malvika Lobo, Stuart Moore, Tanya Peintel & Daihla

Retornados:  G. String, Sunflower, Bed Hanger, Crude Celt, Flying Dane, Moose Milk, Nepturia, No Service, Tutu Much, Ginelle Elliott, Susy Koeren, Katie Mauldin, Attie Murphey, Teaghan Murphey, Kian Murphey, Maggie Sawyer, Frank Sawyer, Pippa Sawyer

Birthdays: There was special mention for Flying Dane who has now reached 100, Corkscrew (150) Moose Grip (55) Nepturia (11) No Moor (445) No Service (11) and Out of Gas (45)

Namings:The Aboud family … all 7 of them were named, Kristian is now known as Rebound, Mary is Mothership, Aidan is Pathfinder, Taylor name is Lock ‘n’ Load, Kieran was delighted with his new naming of Loose Cannon, Dylan will be Great Guns, and baby Caelan is Long Shot. We are delighted to have the “Rebound” family as part of LH3.

Misdemeanours: Sunflower & G-String were singled out for attending the hash on their wedding anniversary rather than doing something more romantic!

The next Hash will be Saturday July 15th

Summer Solstice Hash

A fabulous turnout for the Summer Solstice Hash, 40 Rambo’s and Wimps met up in Cascais to experience the wonderful sun rise over Cascais bay.

Pilot Light & Depth Charge were Hares for this mid-summer event and set an enjoyable 11.5km route for the Rambo’s which included 3 loops, and a 7km trail for the Wimps. Setting a live hash does present some challenges but as both PL and DC are fit and experienced Rambo’s there was little chance of them being caught, the only real contest was getting to the markings before the early morning street cleaners washed and blew the trail away!

Our newly appointed Hash Master, Wrecking Ball did a great job, keeping the circle well organised. He was ably assisted by Not in Charge and Zoom lubricating Hashers with Bucks Fizz & Beer.

Virgins: 3 Virgins were welcomed: Josh Hill, Isabella Casario and Nelly Cojocari

Retornados:  Lorraine Pritt, Tony Mortimer, Danielle Duarte, Port, Stilton, Sizzling Hot, Sizzling Knot, Lone Star, Baron von Jockstrap, Baroness von Strap it On

Namings: Mark Reed was up for his naming, and not before time as this was his 6th Hash in 2 years … apparently he likes to pace himself! The self-confessed retired military man, ex- Royal Navy with specialist interests in meteorology and as we observed in the circle, appears to need to keep his hands in his shorts playing “Pocket Billiards” we had a number of options to consider. Eventually these were shortlisted to: Wet & Windy, Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs, Weather Vain but given the hand actions and weather connections we decided on Weather Cock.

Misdemeanours: No misdemeanours reported as we were all keen to go for an On On breakfast that has been so well organised by Not in Charge and Out of Gas, on behalf of everyone thankyou both.  The Palm Tree did a super buffet breakfast, of fresh fruit, yogurts, bacon, scrambled eggs, French toast and a selection of breads and pastries.

The next Hash will be Saturday July 1st when we will be celebrating Canada Day. Our Canadian Hashers, Fallen Maple, Moose Grip and Moose Milk are kindly hosting a Burger BBQ at their home: Address Location: Lot 13 Antonio Lobo Antunes, Murches

Lisbon Hash House Harriers 30th Birthday Hash and AGPU

Hares and Trail: The meeting point for the Hash was the home of Depth Charge and Not In Charge.  The new road layout in the area gave some of the 60 hashers additional driving and navigation practice but hashers are resourceful, so no problem.

This special 30th birthday trail was set by two of LH3’s most experienced hares Boomerang and Depth Charge.  The route, heading around Aldeia de Juso and Areia, included 2 Rambo loops and the weather gods provided a nice cooling breeze.  The Aboud family, self-confessed “always late”, timed their arrival perfectly to join the trail after all the check points had be opened.  In contrast, it seems as if Pilot Light couldn’t wait to finish the trail and stopped early.  Falling at the first checkpoint, he went to hospital for some care and attention.  Not deterred by the 5 stitches in his chin, Pilot Light returned to the BBQ to participate in the festivities.  A true blue hasher through and through.

The Hash Circle was ably overseen by No Moor, another of LH3’s more experienced hashers.

Virgins:Felipe Vieira, Isabel Vieira, Alex Lydall, Margarida Erikson, Roger Erikson and Jerry de Melo.

Retornados: Polecat (last hash 611), Venta (last hash 350) and Windy (last hash 348) returned to the hash after a long absence.  They were very welcome and hopefully they will not stay away so long.

Rebeca Nutt, Elle T Shirt, Fast Finnish, Flying Mum, Graphic Exposure, Icepyck, Master Chef, Miss Directed, Out of Gas, Silver Maple, Silver Moose, Wannabet, Welsh Rarebok, Zoom, Sonny LeMaster, Gina LeMaster, Don Smale and the Aboud family were also welcomed back.

Birthdays: Pilot Light 50.  He was given a special T Shirt in recognition of this fine achievement.

Bizzie Knickers 25, Depth Charge 222, Fast Finnish 70, Graphic Exposure 40, Lord Egg 145, Lucky 7 15, Miss Directed 35

No Names Sonny LeMaster, Aidan Aboud, Taylor Aboud and Kristian Aboud.

Namings: After very little discussion, Rebeca Nutt was named Wine-A-Lot, because she declared that she ‘drinks wine a lot’ and keeping the drinking theme, but with a Russian twist, Margaret Kytuzova was named Hashtrovia

Misdemeanours: Amongst many who were seen to break hash rules (but there are no rules I hear you shout!), Party Pants was challenged for snogging (not sure why that is bad) and Pilot Light was punished for running Out of Gas then crash landing.

Thanks: to all Hashers for joining in, bringing so many delicious dishes to share, helping in many different ways, and making the 30th birthday celebration a success.  Additional thanks to the hosts, Depth Charge and Not In Charge; the hash grillers Graphic Exposure and Suck My Air; haberdasher Out Of Gas for organising the T shirts; stand in Hash Master No Moor; stand in Beer Meisters Out Of Gas and Not In Charge; and finally the Hares Depth Charge and Boomerang for yet another great trail.

Annual General Piss Up (AGPU): Quite of lot of shoving and cajoling resulted in the following hashers agreeing to be part of the mismanagement team for the coming year.

Hash Report #843 – April 8th, 2017

07/05-2017 | Comments Off on Hash Report #843 – April 8th, 2017

Hash 843 was a Free Hash set in the lovely town of Cheleiros, a Portuguese parish of the municipality of Mafra. The area has a long history of royal connections and wine making which made it ideal for a Wine Tasting Hash.

Hares for the day were Confuzeus and Boomerang who set a scenic rural trail for the 36 Hashers that attended. Acting Hash Master Confuzeus conducted a short circle and then introduced the very knowledgeable Raul Silva who entertained us with the history of the area, and explained how Andre Manz, with his family arrived in Cheleiros, fell in love with the area, the people, and developed a passion for growing quality wines for his own, personal consumption.

Luckily for us, Andre business acumen and the enthusiasm of his team meant that Manz Wines has grown into a successful boutique winemaking business, and we were fortunate to taste the award winning wines that they make.  A very successful day indeed with hashers relaxed sipping the chilled Rose, full bodied Reds and delicious white wine “Dona Fatima” made from the exclusive Jampal grape.

Virgins: Eric Bazoin & Paula Martins

Retornados:  Flying Mum, Graphic Exposure, Loopy, Not Tonight, Hoochie Coochie Man, Corkscrew, Blue Balls, Zoom, Oval, Wannabet, Party Pants

Namings:  No naming’s this week.

Misdemeanours: No misdemeanours reported as Hashers were keen to start the serious business of wine tasting!

The next Hash will be Saturday April 22nd the hares are Pilot Light & Wrecking Ball. If you are interested in setting a hash and please contact the Hare Raiser “Pilot Light”.

Hash Report #842 – 25 March 2017

07/05-2017 | Comments Off on Hash Report #842 – 25 March 2017

Hares: The meeting point for the Hash was St Julian’s car park.  Confusing for some of the 35 hashers, who went to the school car park, only to realise that everyone else was taking advantage of the sea views in the car park down the road.  No problem.  Just drive down the road and join in the fun.

The trail was set by Wrecking Ball and his resourceful co-hare Lucy Urbanowski.  Congratulations to Lucy for stepping in and haring on only her third hash.  The route included 3 Rambo loops, and took both Wimps and Rambos through the delights of the urban, woodland, beach and paradao in Carcavelos.  The trail provided interesting things for all to discover, including wild freesia and the delights of a surf competition.  Congratulations hares – we look forward to seeing more of this combination in action trail setting.  Also worthy of note: entire Aboud family out on the trail.

Virgins: Sonia Ribeiro, Amanda Purdon, John Gilsenan, Diana Rien, Sten Engdahl (Swedish Viking), Alie ENgdahl, Danilo Ballotta, Mary Aboud and Caelen Aboud.

Retornados: Zoom. Pulp Fiction, Natural Blonde, Blue Balls, Depth Charge, Finn Her, Finn Him, Icepyck, Not In Charge, Kristen Aboud, Aiden Aboud, Kieran Aboud, Taylor Aboud, Dylan Aboud, Gina Lemaster, Sonny Lemaster and Martti Saramma.

Birthdays: Captain America – 75 and No Moor – 440

The Circle: No Moor, as an ‘ancient’ (see above) and wise hasher, stepped in as Hash Master for the day.  His experience ensured an orderly circle. Only one major misdemeanour for the afternoon – Icepyck, who did not learn for the experience at the start of the afternoon, and went to a different wrong car park at the end of the hash.  He waited patiently for the other hashers to turn up, thinking, when he saw no one else, that the other hashers must have been really slow.  Moral of the story – check which car park we are supposed to be in.

Not In Charge
