Sad News From Kampala H3

A boat taking passengers on an evening “booze cruise” on Lake Victoria in Uganda capsized and sank on Saturday, November 24th. Thirty passengers drowned, including four members of the Kampala Hash House Harriers.

As my friend Hazukashii noted, while plenty of hashers have passed on from old age and sickness, it’s a blow when hashers [...]

Not this Judge!

I saw the headline on a news site and thought it was about Brett Kavanaugh. Sadly, no.

Fourth Judicial District Court Chief Judge Scott Leehy would not disclose the meaning of recent photos that surfaced on social media of him wearing a red dress by a table of open beer bottles and a poster [...]

Hashers in the News (Not in a Good Way)

When Pick’n’Flick and I lived in Las Vegas, we organized an invitational weekend hash. Sixty or so hashers from neighboring states made the trek, including one guy who came all the way from Canada, which was a pleasant surprise … or so I thought at first. I’d been hashing less than ten years at that [...]

Christmas in April

Actually, it’s Christmas 2016 in April 2018, but it’s been worth the wait: Pick’n’Flick finished my hash t-shirt quilt! And here it is: This is the fourth hash T-shirt quilt she’s done.

Daytona Hashers Find Dead Body

Forwarded to me by Shakesqueer:

I’m disappointed no one mentioned the name of the “jogging club” that discovered the body. The Daytona Hash House Harriers should get some credit, don’t you think?

What’s the most interesting thing your hash has found on trail?

The Graying of the Hash, Part I

Pick’n’Flick and I are driving to San Diego for a few days. Our friends Spock and Manhandler are in town, so we’re staying with them. We plan to hash with La Jolla H3 Monday evening, then go to a “regular evening picnic at Mission Bay” on Wednesday, according to Spock. He says there’ll be some [...]

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: RIP Arthur Gash

On Saturday, November 4th, the Pedalfiles Bicycle Hash House Harriers lost our Grandmaster, Arthur Gash.

Gash was a long-time Tucson hasher. I can’t remember exactly when he started running with the jHavelina H3, but it was a long time ago. Pick’n’Flick and I were there for his virgin hash, and later his naming. We barely [...]

Mending Ripping Down Fences (Updated)

The latest anthrax scare, reported by my friend Tongueless, GM of Gypsies in the Palace H3, San Francisco:

The complaint was posted to an on-line neighborhood forum. The ensuing discussion is interesting. First, you get some insight into public perception of the Hash House Harriers (reasonably positive IMO). Second, speculation on what the vandalism [...]
