The Story of Stitch (Updated)

Over the years I’ve told the story of John Wayne Bobbitt and his connection with hashing to several friends. It’s time to write it down for posterity, before Alzheimer’s sets in.

Pick’n’Flick and I moved to Nevada in 1995 and started hashing with the Las Vegas Resur-Erection H3. Later that year we were at an [...]

No Hare, No Hash

Wow, I hated sending those messages.

I’m GM-by-default for two monthly hashes here in Tucson, Arizona. For each one, I maintain the Facebook page, keep the membership list up to date, raise hares, officiate at the circle, and write the hash trash. The hard part is raising hares, and it’s only [...]

Our InterAm Dilemma

I don’t know any details. Don’t know how [...]

Drinkers with a Satanic Cult Problem?

Well, isn’t this interesting?

NBC Nightly News screen grab from 6/2/14

We were watching the news last night when Pick’n’Flick said, “Hey, look at that!” I only caught a glimpse of it before it was gone, but happily the video segment was already up on NBC’s website and I was able to get this [...]

Hashing Notes from Here & There

A query posted to Facebook’s Hash House Harrier page:

I am thinking of starting a hash house harriers without beer but only vodka and wine. Is this allowed?

Several hashers left comments, most along the lines of “no rules, do what you want,” but a few said that beer should always be present since it [...]
