The First Ever “Let’s Sleep Outdoors” Hash

20 05 2008

I’m going to post this message from Waterloo the Hare of the next hash

Hi Hashers,
Please join Waterloo and Skid-mark ( the hares)  to celebrate the birthdays of both with  a traditional-style hash on Saturday May 24th. The run will be through the forests in the Hart Prairie area of the San Francisco Peaks and will end at a beautiful spot with camping for those that wish to spend the night. Bring your own sleeping bags, a tent ( if you want privacy – it probably won’t rain)  Beer, soft drinks, water and food will be supplied, as will cereal for breakfast the next morning. So that I know roughly how much food to buy, I would appreciate an RSVP with how many in your group to FlagHashHouseHarriers@yahoogroups.com  There will be a charge of $8 per person to cover drinks and food.

We will meet at 2 pm at 415 Ashurst St ( if that’s OK with Mamababa) where we will load into available cars to drive to the box ( where the hash starts) Bring your camping gear with you in these cars, as well as dry, warm clothes to put on after the run. Because this run is in the forest it is a good idea to carry a water bottle and a whistle in case you get lost( plus water for your dog if you are bringing one.) There is one spot where the dogs can get wet and get a drink but they might be hot by the time they get there. There will be beer and soft-drinks at the same spot.

At the end of the run there will be a traditional circle for “religion”  and traditional songs. If you’ve ever wondered how hashing is done in other hashes, this is your chance to see.

On-On
Waterloo

Read IT WELL!

415 E Ashurst Ave Where we will meet

Saturday May 24th At 2pm

Bring CARS if you have them… so we can drive to the starting point.

The Flagstaff Hash House Harrier Reunion Hash

11 04 2008

March 29th, 2008: The Flagstaff Hash House Harrier Reunion Hash

What a ridiculous day!  Saturday, March 29th 2008 is a day that will live in Flagstaff Hash House Harrier infamy.  We met in Heritage Square, in the center of downtown Flagstaff at 3:00 pm.  A 6-piece classical string band was attempting to attract an audience to the large, open expanse of the square. Well… we helped them out a little bit, and showed up 105 hashers strong!  When a hash reaches the triple digits, and a clown costume (among other crazy outfits) is involved, it becomes a spectator sport.

The Reunion Hash was also special due to a series of “Rogue” Hash firsts:

– I talked to a curious officer of the law before the chalk talk and he told me a ‘fun run’ was completely fine.  No more worries in that department!

– The previous Grandmaster Hare of the Flagstaff HHH years ago joined us, and handed down some Hash Heirlooms.  These included an ancient bedpan, to be used as a down-down chalice.

– There were numerous shiggies that took hashers through the Rio de Flag, upriver, under tunnels and overpasses.

– Over 100 people ran 5.2 miles!

Unfortunately the process for adding pictures to these blog posts has changed, and I don’t feel like figuring it out at the moment. No blog pictures for you!  Check out the website (Flagstaffhashharriers.com) for photos of the hash.





Hear Ye Hear Ye…

8 02 2008

Wham-Bam Thank You Ma’am!

My Uncle Nelson always told me to be polite. But that’s beside the point. The Hash coming up on the 16th! It will begin at 2:00 p.m. (get there around 1:30 – 1:45) at Thorpe Park. People will be gathering around the BBQ area or something like that. Please come! PLEASE!





The Trail for the Presidential Love Hash…

2 02 2008

So as many of you may already know (and for those who don’t), our next major hash will be February 16th, around 2:00 or so. Bring a friend or five, especially if your friend is a president…or a president’s face printed on a green bill. In fact, bring Ben Franklin too.

Now, we don’t have much info. about the hash yet. The hares (Vaginitis M.D. and No-name Dan) are keeping it a secret, BUT we’ve managed to recover a blurry aerial photo of the route they are planning:

As you can see, there could be a difficult shiggy across a river with currents flowing both up and down the waterway, and massive logs clogging our path. We might also cross over a five lane super-highway, and one of the checkpoints might have flies instead of beer! Who Knew! Everyone practice your down-down’s, on-on’s, and don’t forget those left-down-down-A-select-right-B-down’s.

Eat a hamburglar and choke on a cow dick! Bye!

 





The 2008 Freestyle Hash

20 01 2008

Saturday, Jan. 12th 2008

The Rogue Harriers had a great Hash last Saturday (12th).  The group averaged at about 45 people (Some were lost along the way, others were picked up).  Cougar Bait and Dick Shaft laid a nice trail, and ensured that half of the run was through snow or over ice. Thanks, assholes.

The day included some drunken, impromptu patriotic songs in a circle around the American Flag, a jaunt through campus, a snowball war at the first checkpoint with background music ‘the final countdown’ (thanks Cougar Bait), and of course a route 66 crossing and mass of confusion downtown. Downtown was full of tourists and (in)conveniently placed pedestrians.  The trail magically disappeared in the center of it all, so everyone had fun being as loud as they possibly could and harassing motorists.

Some Rogue Harriers I spoke to told me that a small child was almost trampled at one point, and another hasher also threw a snowball into someone car window.  What are you gonna do? 45 harriers driven by an unexplainable desire to Freestyle Hash in true rogue fashion are kinda like a stampede of wildebeest. There are never any ill intentions, but people are going to obey their thirst, and once you pop, the fun don’t stop!

The next “official” hash we will have should be on February 16th.  More details on that soon…

For everyone who is 21 and over, we are having a bar hop this coming Thursday (24th), around 4:30 pm.  This will be a relatively short hash, and will consist entirely of bars.  This is a good way to finish off the week, so e-mail me (rbg6@nau.edu) or check back later for details.  Three-Dogs-Fucking is setting this one up.

– On On





Rogue Fun-Fest Location and Moolah!

11 01 2008

Allsup Hashers? The Freestyle Fun-Fest is here!

So tomorrow we will be meeting at Robbie and Andrew’s house at 415 East Ashurst Ave. This is a small, green house just off of South O’Leary Street, right down the driveway next to the O’Leary Market, in between Butler and Franklin Aves. For those of you who have run with us, this is where the first hash in September ended (almost), and where the Halloween Hash started. Ask around if you don’t know where to go.

Try and be here around 1:30 – 1:45, we’ll try and get going around 2:15 or 2:30. Very limited parking, so try and bike or walk.

Also, the growth of the Flagstaff Rogue Hash is a wonderful thing, but it also means that we have to purchase more and more beer for each event. If everyone could bring a few bucks (3-5?) so that the fun-fest can be funded that would be real special. Otherwise your hares for the day, Dick Shaft and Cougar Bait, lose a hundred bucks or so…all gravy? right.

Ok, don’t wear new shoes and see everyone tomorrow!





The Next Hash: What’s up Year 2008? Brace Yo’self!

30 12 2007

So the new year is upon us! Like many of you, I’m so excited to see what the next 12 months will bring I have to change my pants every five minutes. Flying SUVs? A campaign to blow up the moon? Energy drink ice cream? A president who acknowledges the existence of carbon dioxide?

…Or perhaps another series of fan-fucking-tastic hashes! I know everyone (or most of us) have a busy semester coming up, so it seems best to have a good shake-down run before all hell breaks loose. You don’t have a ton of work yet, so enjoy your last weekend of winter break with the first hash of 2008:

Saturday, January 12th!  The 2008 Free-style Flagstaff Fun-Fest Hash!

We do not have a set time or location yet, but I thought it would be a good idea to get the word out. Adjust your schedules, plan accordingly, tell your friends and family and warn your liver. Rogue Hashers, ASSEMBLE!
