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
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
• 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.
• 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....!
Visit to China - Feb/March 2014
Looking at a serious plan now.
It is a huge trip so needs loads of planning so I have started now.
I am wanting to at least book flights. Malaga to Chongqing central China is a great starting point looking at Friday 28th Feb 2014 ( I did look at the 3rd March but that seems a waste of the weekend) return on the 27th March with Finn air the price is €673 only 14 hours out but 30 back there is a long stay in Helsinki but enough time to actually visit Helsinki so still a great flight as it arrives early evening. The flights can be changed before for €100 and it is a 25% cancellation so they are pretty flexible fares.
Plan is to go from Chongqing to Chengdu, drive to Yaan Beifenxia gorge see Pandas, ( Shezuan Province) 2 nights
Very close South to Emei Shan trek the mountain (more details as you can also take a bus and cable car ) visit Dafo the great buddah in Leshan. 2 nights
Make our way to Zhondian either fly Chengdu to Kunming and then to Zhongdian drive or train plan to be made yet…Between here and Lijiang is Tiger Leaping gorge, Trek here possible ( Yunnan Province) very Tibetan 3 nights Then train to Kunming takes 9 hours
Then Kuming to Nanning Guanxi Province fly 1 hour (12 hour train). 150 kms West of Nanning is the Deitan waterfall close to the Vietnamese border Karst hills grubby towns and amazing scenery, bamboo rafting etc. Interesting ethnic groups 3 nights
From Nanning drive to Beihai and take the Ferry to Hainan Island
Hainan interhash 13th to the 16th
After that you may wish to fly Hainan to Shanghai or Hong Kong on the 17th 3 nights, Beijing great wall etc 2 nights side trip to Xian terracotta warriors 1 night return to Chongqing Yangze river cruise if time and then flight on the 27th
Looking at the possibility of hiring a private driver wherever we can and using the train seems a shame to fly over China!
This is a really basic initial plan I just want to put some ideas down, try and get some rough timings and book the international flight.
Please let me know if you are serious and I will send flight details so you can book them, or you can send me all your details and the cash and I will book it all as a group.
You then need to register for interhash $180 at the moment. Visas can wait until after Christmas.
Budget I would say hotels per night €25 pp more if you want good ones, food is minimal, internal travel I would budget 400 euro plus whatever you fancy doing after Interhash.
In China you have to pay for every thing you want to see so there are also entry fees and they are not cheap around €10 a go some less some more.
I will continue to work on it but this is a start.
All ideas welcome.
