Calendars, Reader Comments

Bimbo, publisher of Harrier International magazine, asked me to contribute an abbreviated version of the Half-Mind Calendar for his readers. I thought some readers might be interested in this note I recently sent to Bimbo, because it goes into some of what’s behind the events calendar:

1%ers Terrorize Citizenry

Master Meat Finder, Asshole in El Paso (hare)

The second running of the Harriers MCH3 (Tucson Chapter) was this morning. Attendance, as you can see, was sparse. Asshole in El Paso hared; Flying Booger and Master Meat Finder made up the pack. But never let it be said we didn’t hash!

Trail went west [...]



Some poor guy in the hash got a DUI about a month ago. Yesterday, he dared to speak up about an entirely-unrelated controversy that’s been raging on the local hash e-mail list. Here’s what he said:

We’re just back from a lovely P.I.S.S. hash in Green Valley, the retirement community south of Tucson. Yoda hared, and since he’s somewhat sensitive about being a Green Valley retiree, laid an arduous trail: three miles through ankle-deep sand-filled arroyos, fence climbs, and barbed wire belly crawls. I fell down once, [...]
