InterAmericas Hash 2015

We are back from a two-week road trip, the highlight of which was three days in Portland, Oregon, where we attended InterAm 2015.

Sadly, we missed the Okinawa welcome hash Thursday night. By the time we walked to the hash hotel from our hotel three blocks [...]


A Happy Announcement

Pick’n’Flick and I will be at InterAmericas Hash 2015 in Portland after all. A friend had a friend with a rego to sell so I jumped on it, hoping to find a second rego later. By an incredible stroke of luck, it turned out our friend’s friend had two regos to sell and we were [...]


Our InterAm Dilemma

I’m not one to support alternate events that conflict with and undermine long-scheduled interhashes, but I’m making an exception for purely selfish reasons.

Pick’n’Flick and I will have been married 50 years this coming December. Last year about this time we started thinking about ways to celebrate our anniversary, and we both came up with [...]

In that post I expressed concerns about Stray Dog’s “World Interhash” event, scheduled for the last weekend in September in Orlando, Florida. Three months out, publicity was almost nonexistent and it was difficult to get hard information [...]


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 [...]


The Great InterHash Debate

… goes on. And on, and on.

Voting at InterHash 2012

In a previous entry, after writing about the venue selection for InterHash 2014 (March 13-16, 2014, Haikou City, Hainan, China), I promised to summarize some of the hash-wide discussion on future IH voting.

Here’s the quick & dirty:
