Great Expectations, Revisited

Several years ago, this bit of nastiness showed up on a hash club’s email list:

Ok, I missed my first hash run in Dallas over Thanksgiving and now I’ve heard enough stories to peak my interest. Actually I’ve heard enough stories to make me puke. Running naked through bushes, getting pulled in the middle enough [...]



Here in Tucson, Arizona, I’m a regular at the PISS Hash and the Pedalfiles Bash, but I’ve fallen away from the main club, the jHavelina Hash. Even so, I still consider myself one of them and I subscribe to their Facebook page, where last week a recently-departed jHavelina posted this update:

What’s In a Name?

Guess who isn’t a Hash House Harrier any more? Witness the Meetup page of the Birmingham Magic City Harriers:

The Event that Isn’t … or Is It?

Here’s a screen capture from the Half-Mind Events Calendar:

Normally I include links in calendar entries so that readers can go straight to the event’s own website if they’re interested and want to know more. In this case, however, the event’s own website turned out to be no good, so I linked to the [...]


Is Stray Dog “Poison for the Hash”?

Update (9/11/11): Was just informed that Stray Dog did attend an InterAmericas Hash, the one in Orlando in 1995. I updated the entry to reflect that, and apologize for getting that detail wrong.

Last month, after Stray Dog declared that Interhash 2012 had been taken away from Indonesia and given to Kenya, a Dutch hasher [...]
