Other Hash events-

May 2nd - 4th - Indalo Hash weekend

Well, a year has passed and we are well on our way with the plans for the UK lot (Cambridge, Hastings and Truro) to come over for a European hash in our area again. As per last year, you will be most welcome to join us in Mojácar for the whole hash, or any number of the days. The lot from the UK (currently 22 people) will arrive on the 29th April and leave on the 6th May 2014.

 
We have, so far, a hash planned for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday (2nd, 3rd and 4th May). Usually somebody volunteers to do the trail, or live hare for the Monday.

 Committee Meeting 8/2/14

Present: Streaky, Sweet and Low, Uncle Fester, Sticky Tart, Yogi Bear and Just In. Stiff Fanny

couldn't make it as she had to grease Flakey's pistons, but will be joining the task force for the

Silver Jubilee.

Agenda:

1. Anniversary/Silver Jubilee

– We discussed the decided dates, 26 to 28 September, to see if they were really the most

suitable or not. On the one hand, it was thought they were a bit late in the month, on the

other hand, the Feria is the following week, so would there be any point in moving it

forwards or backwards?

Having it during the Feria was considered more of a hassle than a benefit, with higher hotel

occupation, more people and trafffic, etc. Moving it earlier, might be a good idea for the

weather and the fact that many people, especially teachers, might still be in “holiday mode”,

but after long deliberations it was decided to stick to the original date.

– Prices: to encourage registration, especially of our home hashers, it was decided to have an

Early Bird fee of € 65 for registration before 30 May, then € 85 onwards. This will be

strictly adhered to – the discount is only for people paid up entirely before said date.

– Flyer and mailing. The flyer prepared by Sweet'n'Low was approved and she will be sending

out this information asap! It will go to Madrid, Algarve, Rota, Bilbao, Javea, Barcelona, etc.

and be posted on our Facebook page as well as sent to our own ex-Hashers. Anyone having

emails of ex-Hashers, please let us know!

– Tasks. A list of tasks has been drawn up. At the next meeting the tasks will be assigned,

although some people are already making a start with some of them:

• Saturday and Sunday Run: it would be a good idea to have the Sunday run within walking

distance or with easy public transport options. The beach is a must for our visitors as well –

Just In volunteers to come up with a plan for this. The 1300 Saturday run was a hard act to

follow, so we need people to come up with something worthwhile.

• T-shirts: a design is needed. Yogi and Just In will both check out some options on this, but

other suggestions will be welcomed. Deadline for the design is end of June.

• Drays. It seems like a good idea to have separate drays for beer and softies on the two run

days.

• Hotel. Streaky and Sweet'n'Low will check out two hotel options and include their findings

in the flyer to be sent out next week.

• Badges and Goody Bags.

• Buses.

• Snacks for the Saturday run to keep people sweet before dinner (21.00-ish)

• Friday night activity. It was suggested that a “puzzle tour” type activity would be nice,

making sure Hashers from different kennels mix from the start. Colonic and Dipper both

have experience with this kind of thing and Just In has done it a few times in Madrid as well.

• Registration and Webpage. Whoever is Hash Cash at the time would be taking money, but

he/she will need support to set up a previous webpage where people can register, etc.

• Magazine. It might be nice to have a magazine with old pictures, articles, etc.

• Restaurants. Saturday should be a slap-up meal with plenty of space (we are thinking of

100-odd people) for diners and acts, music, etc. Sunday can be a bit more frugal, but has to

be decent as well.

• Sponsorship. It will be very difficult to find sponsors, but one idea would be to ask

individual Hashers to contribute (e.g. Buying one or several crates of beer, according to their

spending power, so Uncle Fester 3 cans of Lidl beer, Dipper the entire Cruzcampo Factory,

etc.) in exchange for their names on the T-shirt.

• Badges and Goodie Bags

As mentioned, these tasks will be assigned at the next meeting, so anyone with ideas on the tasks

mentioned or interested in participating please come forward....!

On on!

       The Hash Commandments

  1. The GM is always right
  2. When the GM is wrong, Rule 1 applies
  3. The RA is always right except when Rule 1 applies and there shall be no defence.
  4. The RA checks on proper behaviour before, during and between runs. It is left to the RA's discretion as to whether he/she will ignore any transgression, give a private reprimand or make a charge. If a charge is made a penalty will automatically follow.
  5. The penalty for any transgression is one down-down, except when the charge is severe, when a penalty with shame shall apply. A penalty with shame is a down-down taken kneeling down (or on ice if any is available).
  6. Beer is to be drunk when down-downing or poured over your own head. Excessive waste may result in a second down-down with shame.
  7. No Whingers!.
  8. With joyous heart, every Hasher will give Hash Cash 4 Euros every run. Covers beer, water, crisps.
  9. Anyone having knowledge of a transgression by a fellow Hasher may make a charge during the down-downs. A charge will always result in a penalty for either the accused, the accuser, or both, at the discretion of the RA. Charges from the pack can be defended, but poor defence will result in a penalty with shame (see Rule 5).
  10. Intelligence is neither required or appreciated on the Hash. Thinking on the run is a punishable offence.
  11. Short-cutting is allowed. Being caught short cutting is a serious offence (see Rule 10). A short-cutter will be known as an SCB (Short Cutting Bastard).
  12. At more or less regular intervals, every Hasher will be asked to set a run. Since being a Hare is a great honour, refusals are neither expected nor accepted. If the run is passably good, the Hares will be awarded a down-down. If the run or anything about the run is considered to be below standard for MH3, the Hares may face the great honour of the Hash-Shit .
  13. Silent running is a punishable offence.
  14. Every Hasher will be given a Hash Name. They will subsequently be known only by this Hash Name. Failure to observe this rule will result in a charge
  15. The Hash has Internationally accepted forms of communication on the run:- When ON flour shout 'On-On'. When Checking shout 'Checking'. When calling someone back to the correct trail shout 'On Back'. All calling must be at an appropriately high decibel level.  Hashers caught shouting 'On-On' when not in sight of flour will be charged with misleading the Hash. (See Rule 23).
  16. All Hashers should be strongly committed to the Hash and attend gatherings whenever possible. Irregular attendance will be noticed and charged. (i.e. two consecutive absences).
  17. The Hash is a non-competitive run through the local countryside in order to encourage a thirst for beer that should already exist. Aggressive running is totally banned and is a punishable offence. Aggressive runners will be called FRB's (Front Running Bastards). Persistent FRB's may be awarded a down-down prior to a run to curb their enthusiasm.
  18. No crop bashing will occur during the run. Down-down with shame to the offenders.
  19. Stationary checking or refusal to check when so required by the RA will undoubtedly result in a charge.
  20. If the cars are sighted on the run, then the run is officially over and the Hash may proceed to the beer by the most direct route.
  21. Leading the Hash astray is easy. However, the perpetrator of this crime will surely be made to suffer.
  22. The rules are not comprehensive and therefore rule 23 applies.
  23. The GM can add, delete or change, any rule, at any time. No public announcement will be deemed necessary, however transgressions will still result in a charge.
  24. The Hash is democratic and fair but will obey the GM in all matter
