Circular Reasoning

Shorter circles, better on-afters?

In the wake of hash elections, we have a new GM. So far I’ve been to only one of his circles, but I like what I saw. He kept it short, and after it was over everyone went to on-afters. There were two big out-of-town events this weekend, so he had [...]


Friday Evening Hash Dog Blogging

A few weeks ago, Burnt Sox started a rant by asking: “Hashing used to be fun. What happened?”

Of the three candidates for GM, two dropped out, leaving one candidate to run unopposed. At the last minute another hasher put his hat in the ring for RA and also ran unopposed.

A few days before [...]


Hash X Files
