|Today 20 October 2017|
You surely recognize Append-a-dick-to-me and Room Service on the picture. They tied the knot and more than deserved to sit on their thrones. They shared their happiness with 81 other hashers who had turned up to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, with 24 from Pattaya Hash, but also with famous returners, like Head Mistress, Wise Crack and Richard the Turd.
With so many hashers, our bus was far to small, but with 3 taxis, that problem was solved easily. More problematic was that we expected to run out of beer before the circle would even start. But in Vietnam, such problems can be solved easily and no hashers have been reported suffering form a lack of alcohol.
I did not realize it at the time, but this was also the last circle run by the old MMC. Next week, many of us will be in Nha Trang and the week after, on Saturday 1st of April, we will hold the Annual General Meeting and elect the new MMC. Every hasher with more than 5 runs under his/her belt in 2016/2017 will be welcome.
Check here for details.
St. Patrick's Day runs are traditionally held in the religeously well endowed area along the Tri Anh Road and this year was no exception. Read all about it in Sexy Eyes' scribe report.
GE will be the hare the coming week and, for a change, he will set a city run. He has promised an excellent run with a very special beer stop location. Check out the details on Next week's Run.

Annual General Meeting (AGM/AGPU)
On April first the Saigon Hash will hold its so-called AGM. During this Annual General Meeting, also referred to as the Annual General Piss Up or AGPU, we will elect the Fool on the Hill, otherwise known as the GM, for the coming period. The election will be carried out in a totally fair and transparent manner, copied from shining examples of democracy such as Zimbabwe and North Korea. The only difference will be that we will have (free) food and drinks.
We will use the occasion to also present awards to Hashers that have shown outstanding performance during the past year.
The AGPU will be held at the new "La Habana", 152 Le Lai Street (Not to be confused with Le Loi) from 19h30-22h00 (otherwise known as 7.30-10 pm). Dinner and drinks will be on the Saigon Hash for all hashers that have been at a minimum of 5 runs in 2016/17, others pay 300k (expat) or 200k (VN).
The Saigon Hash bar closes at 10 pm. Bring your wallet if you want to hang on and dance at La Habana's live music.
Run 1393 St. Patrick's Day
The hares for this run were Paddy Fag and Inbound, with Pole Polisher and Jack Off taking good care if the walkers.
In honour of St Patrick's day, and in an effort to ensure the proceedings were not too green, Apendadictomy gave T shirts to hares.
Headmistress gave the walk report stating that she had got exactly what she expected hot, steamy and muddy. Despite what the Saigon Hash considers to be an enormous mountain, she bemoaned the lack of any significant gradients, too much time spent climbing what the Ethiopians have to offer! She was also disappointed by the lack of emerald balls and she is again missing the BBC. She gave a score of -50.
Trapper from Pattaya was selected to give the run report being one of the few Pattayans who had braved the infamous Saigon run. He claimed there had not been enough ants or mud. This was disputes by many who displayed their war wounds, the Saigon Hash are obviously not keen on sharing the ants that get into their pants. A score of -2 was given making the overall score -26.
This run saw Paddy Fag achieving 444 runs of which 125 were hare sets. In recognition of his phenomenal servicing of the hash he was awarded a T shirt.
Wisecrack was returning after a phenomenally long absence and the Saigon Hash has a collective memory to rival a goldfish. Despite the odds she was awarded a T shirt for 50 runs.
Mental disorder was then charged. He had promised to bring a bunch of 35 of Pattaya's best runners and drinkers. The running part was very disappointing, we are hoping they will make up for it on the drinking score card.
The Religious Advisors where Paddy Fag Jack off. There were virgins, returnees and lots of visitors so it was decided to move straight onto the charges.
The Dutch were charged. The Irish f**ked the Catholics by voted for same sex marriage; Britain has f**ked Europe with the Brexit vote; and all the Dutch have managed is being told to get f**ked by the Turkish president.
Despite the negative press that the Americans have previously had they are now getting used to having their virtues extolled. They have voted in Trump to lead the Free World, told Angela Merkel to f**k off, and now proclaimed their love for the Irish. We have obviously vastly overestimated their collective IQ.
The Blond Canadians were then called in, again for congratulations. They are doing a sterling job of ensuring that lines of diplomacy between America and Canada remain open by being dumb enough to effectively communicate with them.
Fukoffee had made coffee cake for Headmistress return. She went to horn of Africa to improve sex life, the tactic allegedly worked and so she has returned to us on a sex break tour!
Fukoffee and Slow Gin were charged. After breaking Fukoffee, Slow Gin was given a sins of the flesh lecture about alternatives that could be employed, we didn't expect her to practice on the Hash bus.
Broken Seal WAS charged for inadequate training of Unzip Me Quick after appearing at the wedding in a decidedly unironed shirt.
Finally Appendadictomy and Room Service had to face the music, luckily it was nothing compared to the 'music' that they had subjected the poor unsuspecting hashers to at their wedding.
Headmistress charged Ballcock with misinformation, the "boring" hash at Dar salaam has now transformed itself, apparently this happened as soon as Ballcock left.
Cleared for Landing was charged. She keeps bringing Mile High Reward on the Hash and now all the female Vietnamese hashers want rewards of their own!
As it was the St Patrick's day run it was fitting that the Irish were called into the circle and commended for kicking the English in balls in the Rugby 6 Nations Cup.
Headmistress then called all the Harriettes to the circle to sample some African cream. It slipped down very smoothly.
Finally the Septuagenarians were called in to toast the passing of a legend; these old farts can remember dancing to Chuck Berry when his music was revolutionary.
That's all for this week folks.
Sexy Eyes signing off.
