Ladies and Gentlemen of the Guangzhou Hash,
Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors, typically found on Scottish traditional clothing, and it’s probably the only pattern that a whole day of global and joyous celebrations has ever been dedicated to.
On Saturday, it’s been precisely 700 – give or take a few – years ago, since the infamous Declaration of Arbroath, in which the Scots vowed to wear tartan patterns no matter what, hence bringing about some kind of identity to themselves, and haunting the rest of the world with a lot of silly kilt jokes.
It goes without saying that it must be a Scotsman who hares such a historical run. Only good that the Guangzhou Hash can tap from a big pool of experienced Scottish hares, such as Shoeless Ho, Hello Sailor, Furry Thing or Floppy Disk to name just a few. After long and heated debates the mismanagement decided to give the honors to the most senior of all experienced Scottish hares – GPS. Wee Willy will serve as his sidekick, thus adding sufficient length, proper direction and German perfection to the trail.
On top, our Religious Advisor has promised that he is finally going to stop the rain by tomorrow afternoon, so that we can all look forward to a great day of hashing.
Absolutely NO bag pipes allowed, tartan or not!
