The February Bar Hash

3 03 2008

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Have you ever heard 25 people scream the words “TRAIN SHOTS” in harmony?  This past Friday was my first time.  Altitudes Bar and Grill was the third stop on the Flagstaff Rogue Harrier Bar Hash, and they were very accommodating. Management actually demonstrated some significant foresight and delivered pitchers after pitchers after shots after pitchers to the lower patio area.  It was a good idea to quarantine us down there; previous stops inside Mia’s (where we received much appreciated discounts), and the bar formerly known as the Mogollon, were ended with a din of chanting, cheers, and drumming on the tables.


 It seems like the hashes keep getting better as awareness about them grows.  As far as spreading awareness goes, this Hash may have been the most fruitful.  Not only does each bar check know who the Flagstaff Rogue Harriers are, small slips of paper with our website were handed out at random.  There were very few instances where we caused a real nuisance or neared the edge of drunk and disorderly behavior.  Perhaps the only real threat was the great circle outside Malloney’s bar,  where all the harriers performed a rendition of Ole Ole Ole that would rival that of an international futbol match.  People waiting in line for the show at the Orpheum that night were given a real treat.

The next hash will not be until Saturday, March 29th.  Spring Break and a couple other events have broken up the schedule a bit, but rest assured, the wait will be worth it!  We will start spreading the word and finding the hares early.  There has also been rumors of (and by rumors I mean me, Mama Baba and some others discussing)  a hash that would end at a pre-arranged camp ground in the national forest, where tents, kegs, etc… have already been set up.  No promises though… March weather in Flagstaff is a volatile son of a bitch.
Mark you calendars for the 29th, and possibly the 30th as well.  Enjoy the break, your brains and livers will. ON ON.

Sounds like you guys had a great time! I plan to be there on 3/29 and will try to bring along a few of the old hashers and pass on some of our songs and traditions. I am very pleased ot see the revival of a hash in Flag. We have great terrain for it here and it seems like there are lots of people with the right spirit.
