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 [...]

Hashing & the Real World

Every now and then hashing collides with the real world. Here’s an announcement I read today, and I thought I’d pass it on in case you missed it:

H A S H E R S!

We regret to finally announce that the Pan Africa Hash 2015 in Freetown, Sierra Leone, has fallen victim to the [...]

The Great InterHash Debate

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.

Road Trip: Gypsies in the Palace 1000th

We don’t go on many road trips these days, so it was a real treat to drive to San Francisco for last weekend’s Gpysies in the Palace H3 1000th. The event ran from Thursday, May 31, to Sunday, June 3. We missed the Thursday and Sunday hashes, but were there for the Friday night pub [...]

It’s China (Updated … and Updated Again)

That’s the latest word from Borobudur. Here’s a message from Mu-Sick, who is there, and it sounds pretty authoritative to me:

Of the 4400 or so participants at Interhash 2012, only 2374 voted. A strict procedure was set up for voting Friday and Saturday night, which included arequirement for every vote to be cast in [...]
