It was a great day for a swedish midsummer hash, the sun was bright in the sky, the birds were singing and the forest creatures were frolicking. It was noted that the nice weather seemed to appear about the same time the RA left the country , and we all thanked the RA for leaving some nice weather behind for us.
Our hare, Paula the Bastard was able to set a great hash on in the most Swedish of places, Forstenrieder Park (or at least that is where I think I was). There were a lot less mountains than Sweden, but there were plenty of trees, which was fitting with my image of Sweden.
It was a great trail for a hash, however most of the harriers walking and chatting. I guess the sun was a little too much for everyone after 2 months of cloudy weather.
When I ponder of the midsummer festival, it always makes me think of the play Midsummer Nights Dream by some english guy. Apparently is really famous, but I only remember the donkey show. I may have seen a different version than everyone else.
Of course, what Swedish Midsummer Hash is complete without the traditional Croatian dinner, while the US and Ghana play soccer.
We did have a couple visitors from New York via Stuttgart, and I believe it was their first time hashing. Toye, his lovely wife and darling son.
I forgot to write their names down. Bad Scribe.
First the Biermeister drank, because he is the biermeister.
There was then a down down for everyone who's national team is no longer in the world cup (or never made it):
Half Monty, Paul the Bastard, Birdbrian, Baby Boiler, Ma Baker, Speedo drank, and there may have been more.
On a sad note, Sex Goddess passed away on a recent hash in Brussels. We all had a drink to his memory.
