Suspicious White Powder … Again

Well, yay, I have two recent incidents to add to my Suspicious White Powder files. The first comes from a Tucson hasher, who passes on an email posted to her neighborhood listserv about a month ago:

Good morning Neighbors,

Does anyone know what the white powder that is on the ground all [...]

Finding Hash Contacts

Sorry to keep harping on the regional hash contact websites, but too many hashers don’t know they exist. When they want to know if there’s a hash in some other city or country, they ask other hashers on HashSpace or the Hash List. Which is fine, but when they get an answer, [...]

Protecting the Brand

Reading the hash list this morning I came upon a new wrinkle in hashing. I think it’s interesting enough to share here.

In respect to “hare and hounds” being synonymous with “hashing,” have you noticed these guys from Pensacola? www.easthillhash.com. They say they are a “hash-type club” but intentionally don’t call themselves “Hash House Harriers” [...]

Poachers in Red Dresses

Long title: defending Red Dress Runs from non-hashing poachers … and why it’s important.

Friend of the blog Hops recently posted this on Facebook:

Sadly, many hashers reacted like this:

Don’t get me wrong. I understand the reaction (even though it’s assholish). There are no rules, the minute we start getting organized we [...]

(Updated) Guest Post: Acceptable Hash Behavior?

The following post was submitted to me by a hasher who attended the recent InterAmericas Hash in Savannah, Georgia. All I know is I wasn’t there, so it couldn’t have been me!

So my girlfriend and I just returned from the InterAmericas in Savannah. We have over 35 years Hashing experience between us: we’ve [...]

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 [...]
