(visited by David Coombs and UB Hash House Harriers)

21-Sep-2004 -- The Ulaanbaatar Hash House Harriers had its final Tuesday evening meeting of the year today. Hash is a worldwide running club with a frinking probleem or is it a drinking club with a running problem? See www.gthhh.com for more details. From next Saturay meetings will be held on Saturday afternoons till the temperature falls below -20C ish. This point has been conquered before but this was a mass invasion and with greater accuracy than the previous visit.

Forty hashers set off in one bus and 3 cars across UB to the hills onthe northern side of the city. A new land law was introduced last year and the great land grab is still going on . Fences and building plots now stretch way up the hillsides.

The group split into runners and walkers and headed up the hill. The 8 runners (David, Ingrid, Justin, Jenny, Martina, Luke, Mark and James) all made it to the point at sunset. The walkers did not have the time or energy but had a pleasant stroll to the top of the ridge. Once everybody was back at the vehicles the customary down-downs followed with introductions of new hashers, celebration of anniversaries and identification of criminals etc. All this is done with modest amounts of liquid refreshment. We are a very tame hash! Serious drinkers/hashers then retire to pass the rest of the evening at Dave's place.
