Donna Rhinehart, the Lady in Red, passed away last night in Phoenix. Everyone who knew her loved her: she was a kind, generous friend to every hasher she met, including me. She made a huge impact on hashing through her campaign to make red dress runs the signature event of the Hash House Harriers, and [...]

My friend Hops already posted this story to Hashspace, but I think it’s important and should be covered here as well. It’s the kind of story I’ve featured here before, a story about hashers rubbing up against authority.
