Got this photo from my friend Casual Friday, taken last weekend during the Jolly Rogers H3 hash cruise of the Bahamas.
Until I have a chance to talk to Casual Friday, I don’t know if this was a no-shit hijacked trail, or just a shot check inserted into a Jolly Rogers trail by someone from another hash. It certainly looks like the latter, and looks like good clean fun.
Do hashers actually hijack trails? I’ve been told they do, actually laying in wait for a hare to pass, then putting down marks to detour the pack to an on-in or pub other than the one planned by the hare, leaving the poor hare high and dry at the end, wondering what happened to the pack. That, it seems to me, is not sporting, and if it were done to me would induce anxiety and anger.
Has that happened at your hash, or to you? What do you think? Is trail hijacking a good thing or a bad thing?
