Hash No. 1513 - HASHMAS


This week's Hash is HASHMAS and will be on SATURDAY the 25th of June, as you have been so kindly reminded 10,000 times by your esteemed Grand Mattress over the past months....
Those of you who have signed up and paid will be following the instructions as such:
 
Take the Molepolole Road west toward Bokamoso Hospital, through Mogoditshane. Once through Mogoditshane, at the robot just before you see the hospital, you will see a sign (on your left) saying "Camel Inn". If you get to Bokamoso Hospital, you have gone too far.
Turn RIGHT at this junction (as the "Camel Inn" sign indicates) and proceed along this tar road for a kilometre or so until you see the thatched roofing of the Camel Inn Lodge on your right. Turn right (on the cement-block-paving) into the lodge parking (overflow parking in front of the entrance gate/wall).  Hash signs will be in place.
 
DON'T FORGET TO DON YOUR BRIGHTEST RED FESTIVE HOLIDAY APPARELL!!!  THOSE APPEARING TO *NOT* BE DECKED OUT IN THEIR YULETIDE BEST WILL BE SEVERELY PUNISHED!  (or PUNCHED, depending on the demeanor of the R.A. on the day!!)
 
The run will commence at 3:30pm.   Those of you who have booked & paid for chalets are welcome to arrive a bit earlier to get your room assignments and settle in. 
After the run, the circle will be held, mulled wine will be drunk, and Hashmas dinner (again for those of you who have reserved and paid for your seat) will be served at 7pm.
Revelry will ensue thereafter, carols sung, beverages partaken of, and christmas cake devoured!
The liver run will be held Sunday morning at 8am, with breakfast to follow.
 
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT BOOKED AND PAID, you may still be able to join us for dinner and breakfast after the liver run on Sunday, if you let me know BEFORE SATURDAY, and pay up!   However the chalets are now sold out.  You can "pull a Casper" and park your camping vehicle in the parking lot if you wish! 
 
Once again, Dinner = P100 and breakfast = P50. 
 
A Merry Hashmas to all, and to all a good Hash!
Brad.
 
P.S.  Anyone attending on Saturday who has a decent sound system/stereo/speakers that they would be willing to bring along, please let me know!!  We are having "issues" in this department at present....

Run 1512: Sunday 19th June @ 10.00am - Gabs Game Reserve PLUS!

This week's hash will be on Sunday the 19th of June at 10:00a.m. in front of the Gaborone Game Reserve (Broadhurst).  The "PLUS" as advertised in the Subject of this email will be the annual On-After Game Reserve Picnic after the run.  Or as I like to call it, "Dining with Monkeys".

 

Directions to Game Reserve as follows (we will meet outside the front gate):

 

From Gaborone Sun/National Stadium/University of Botswana, etc:

Head north on Chuma Road (toward Broadhurst) and at the intersection of Nyerere/Segoditshane/Chuma roads where you see the "Maru Apartments", take a right onto Metsemasewa Road.

Continue on this road as it passes Maru-a-Pula school, bends to the left, and you wll see a "Gaborone Game Reserve" sign indicating that you must turn right, as well as (hopefully) K3H signs from here.

 

From the Western Bypass:

At the BTV Circle, head east "into town", on Seboni Road, over the railway line, and through the stop junction with Nelson Mandela Road where Seboni becomes Nyerere Drive.

Continue on Nyerere drive straight ahead approximately 3km, straight through the major stop junction with Chuma/Segoditshane and continue past Maru-a-Pula school as per the instructions above.

 

After the hash we will have a bring & braai/picnic inside the Game Park, so please bring your favourite picnic'ing cuisine, probably considering extra quantities because whether you like it or not, you will undoubtedly end up unintentionally sharing a portion or two with the notorious Vervet monkeys of the Gaborone Game Reserve.  The Cost of entering the Game reserve is Adults = P10 and children the age of 17 and below pay P5. If you are using your own vehicle there is an extra vehicle fee of P10, and we will share cars if there is room you can spare in yours.

Run 1511: 12 June @ 10.00 in Gabane

This week's hash (12 June, at 10:00am) will be from the scenic mountain top dwelling of Mary Poppins & The Cat Lady in Gabane.  A bring and braai will follow, so bring your stuff & perhaps your umbrella.... you know Mary Poppins will have his!

Directions are as follows:

 

From the Rainbow circle on the Western Bypass, turn West onto the Kanye Road and proceed straight through Mogoditshane.

Approximately 12km down the Kanye road from Rainbow Circle, just past where the high-voltage power lines cross the road, will be the 2nd Gabane turn on your left. 

It is an unpaved road and is marked by a variety of signs including "The Cattery", "Do Not Litter", "Thatched Houses for rent", "Gabane Pottery", "Pelegano Art Village", etc etc etc.  There should also be a hash sign but it might visually disappear amongst the forest of other signs, so watch out.

Turn left off of the tar and onto this dirt road and carry on for about 300m until you see a right-hand turn with a sign that says "Ditlhareng - The Taylors" (and also a hash sign). Turn right here and continue to the big flat rocks just in front of the security gate, and this is where we will meet.

Run 1510: Sunday the 5th June, 10am

Sunday's hash will be at 10am and will be located in the Sir Seretse Khama International Airport "neighbourhood".

 

So says Andrew the Hare anyway, in fact, here are the specifics:

"AIRPORT ROAD, THIRD TURN ON YOUR RIGHT FROM THE TRAFFIC LIGHST. THERE WILL BE THE FIRST K3H SIGN THEN THE THIRD TURN LEFT THERE WILL BE ANOTHER SIGN THEN PROCEED STRAIGHT".

 

(Presumably this means you are meant to turn toward the airport from the Airport junction/robots on the Western bypass, and then follow the hash signs).

 

So there you go.  Give your braai tongs the weekend off, find something else to do after the run.  HA! just kidding, there will be hash drinks available as usual. But that's it.

 

See you Sunday the 5th of June at 10:00am then!
