Killed on Trail

A Tampa hasher, Bed & Bucfest, died Friday night after being hit by a car while she was running a hash trail in Orlando. I didn’t know her, but I know Tampa hashers who were close to her, and I know they’re hurting. It’s a terrible thing.

We took the others to local hash meets and gave them to new hashers [...]

I don’t have many details. Adios MF from Las Vegas called to tell me about it, since I knew Tuna and was looking forward to seeing him again … Tuna was supposed to move today from Las Vegas to Chandler, Arizona, and I’d hoped [...]

It is with deep sadness I have to advise that Dr. Gordon ‘Prof’ Williams, a long-time member of Bicester Hash House Harriers, died this morning.
