New to Hashing? The Hash House Harriers are a group of loosely affiliated running (and drinking) groups around the world. A group of Hashers ‘the hounds’ follow a trail set by a fellow Hasher ‘the hare’ who has run the trail earlier leaving marks in flour or chalk so the hounds know where to run. The running is not taken terribly seriously and there are enough false trails, check backs and other ticks to keep the speedy front runners looking for the right trail while the slow and steady runners and the walkers catch up...

HZH3 Hash #150 – “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run” – Re-HASHED

HZH3 Hash #150 – “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run” – Sat, 25 October, 1.00pm – Starting at the TongWu Mountain Tea Village Bus Station and ending at the LongWu Tea Village.

Hares for Hash #150 were Gasbag, Sheep Shagger, Just “Birkhoff” and Sweet FA. Sheep Shagger and Sweet FA did some scouting during the week before the Hash, but do you think that prevented any trail setting mishaps from happening… No, it didn’t. But, in any case, at the end of the day the Hash #150 Walkers’ and Runners’ trails got the thumbs up from all the Hashers. So, it was a successful day for the Hares!!!

There was a bit of panic before the Hash as this was the first time we tried hiring a bus to pick the Hashers up and take them to the Hash start point for the A to B run. With not long to go until the buses were due to arrive, there were small groups of Hashers wandering aimlessly around the world famous Gudang Green Square… Anyway, they finally all came together (Ooooo!) just in time to find the buses and get on board.

Due to various trail setting misadventures, only one Hare made it back to the start point in time for the Hash start. Well done to Just “Birkhoff” who had set the special parts of the Walkers’ trail. Meanwhile, Sheep Shagger and Gasbag finished off the Long Run trail and then put their feet up for 2 hours waiting for the Hashers to reach HOME… which they’d marked all the way to their table at the Bash venue instead of to the designated HOME Circle location at the Giant Teapot Statue… It’s so hard to find good help these days! While those two were taking it easy, I took another hour or so to finish off the Ballbuster Run Hash trail and then set up the Circle location after I got back to HOME.

Out on the Hash trails, due to the inability of the Pack to read simple and clearly marked Hash marks, they got lost and delayed a couple of times, so in the end no Hash runners made it to the Long Run turn-off point before the 4.30pm cut-off point to continue on the Ballbuster Run trail. I see that this left Obama very sad as he’d hoped to tackle the full Ballbuster Run… or was he just pretending to be upset and in reality was crying tears of joy and that he was scared of Hangzhou’s Hash #150 Ballbuster Run Trail…? The jury is still out.

At the Circle there were a surprising number of Down Downs given to the Hares, considering the perfectly laid Hash Trail we’d set… It was great to see quite a few people made the effort to wear a costume for Halloween. It was super awesome to have quite a few Hash Virgins join us on this Hash. And, finally, it was fantastic to have a goodly number of visiting Hashers from Shanghai and Hong Kong, etc.

The Bash (held at Cha Zhi Yu 茶之语 Restaurant) was a mighty fine feast fit for a King or at least a Duke… During the dinner Obama led the Hash naming ceremony for 2 Hashers. Welcome to My Brother’s Rubber and Magic Foot Long!

The after party was held at Amigo Bar and various other places around Hangzhou.

If all goes well, then we should hit HZH3 Hash #200 in late 2016. Don’t miss it!!!

See some of the action in the photos below.

The Official information and Registration website is: http://www.panasiapondy.com/

FYI, Triple-X and Gasbag have already signed up!

“Pondy” = Pondicherry = Puducherry (Tamil) which is a small, scenic beachside city with a long French colonial history. It is in Tamil Nadu State about 150kms south of Chennai City on the S-E coast in India. See Google Map link: https://goo.gl/maps/LO3xB

Here’s what the organisers have to say:

“The biggest event in the 2015 Hashing calendar is a 100% On On!

After the early mismanagement . . . hey, come on its a hash after all, the web-site is live and online registration will be available before the end of the month. We have negotiated excellent Hash rates for local accommodation and you will be able to view and book by following the
link on the PANHP2015 web-site by the end of the month.

The committee’s experience of organising various Nash and anniversary Hashes ensures this will be the biggest and most fun Hash event of the year with great venues, challenging runs, the ever popular Charity Red dress run and of course lashing of alcohol.

As always we are looking for Hashers to support the event and help with the organisation so let us know via email if you are interested. . .

We are also planning for the [Circle] “Down Downs” to be hosted by various Hashing groups from around the world to add to the international flavour of the PANHP 2015. Again, all you Grand Masters, Religious Advisors or Hashers who think they can run a fun circle please contact us via email with your Hash group name and theme.

Sounds fun? then join the fun and register today!”

Zhejiang Anji Hash Weekend November 15-16 (Sat-Sun)!!! – by the Suzhou Hash

Hey there Hangzhou Hashers and Friends,

We have excellent news from our Hash friends in Suzhou… They are planning a weekend Hashing road trip to Zhejiang Province (that’s our province, in case you didn’t know…) in mid-November (Sat-Sun, 15-16 Nov) and we’ve been invited to join the fun!

The location is in beautiful Anji, you know… where the bamboo forest scenes for the movie “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” were filmed. Ahhhh… the tranquility…

Anji Baidu Map: http://j.map.baidu.com/CB5Xx
Anji Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/CDNzE

 

Anji is not very far away from Hangzhou to the N-W and will take about 70 minutes by bus from the Hangzhou North Bus Station or a bit longer from the HuangLong (Yellow Dragon) Tourist Bus Station. We Hangzhouvians can catch a bus together.

If you will go or might go, then please fill out the Doodle bus time voting form and send us an email, so we can coordinate the Hangzhou side of things.

NOTE: I’m choosing Sat 8am and Sun 4pm with the aim to have a few extra hours to look around Anji, but I’ll go with what the crowd thinks. FYI, the Suzhou Hashers arrive at about 1pm on Sat and will leave at 2pm right after lunch on Sun.

HZH3 Email address:  mismanagement [AT] hangzhou-hhh [DOT] org

HZH3 going to Anji Doodle form:  http://doodle.com/w9ewriye7pvucsmb

 

During the weekend there will be a Saturday afternoon Hash (2pm start) and a Sunday morning Hash (10am start).

Cost: 160rmb (includes Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch, beer, snacks, and swag! 

What’s your T-shirt size? 

Accommodation and transportation NOT included, these will be paid separately)

If you can decide by about 1 Nov, then Blaise “I Luv Blowjobs” from the Suzhou Hash can help you book accommodation. See below. (suzhouh3 [AT] gmail [DOT] com)

There are many other hotels nearby too, so don’t think that you’ll be outside sleeping with the pandas if you have to wait a bit longer to decide.

See other details below.

HZH3 Hash #150 – “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run” – Sat, 25 October, 1.00pm (!)

Hello again HZH3 Hashers and those who want to be,

Whether you’re a runner 跑步者, a jogger 慢跑者 or a walker 走步/爬山者, come along and hit the country roads and tea field trails while chasing the ‘hares’ through the forests and over the hills around Hangzhou with us. 欢迎大家!

The Hares for Hash #150 are Sweet FA, Gasbag and Sheep Shagger and ??? (+ 1 more Hare needed!!!).

Don’t forget that Fri, 31 Oct is Halloween! So, wearing Halloween costumes on this Hash is encouraged. If you don’t wear a costume, you can expect an extra Down Down! (Obviously, if you do wear a costume, then you’re going to get an extra Down Down too!)   ;)

记得周五10月31日就是万圣节,所以参加这次Hash不穿万圣节衣服的人们一定会多一次干杯!  (显而易见,穿万圣节衣服的人们也当然都要喝多一次干杯! 哈哈.)

The Hares promise you runners’ and walkers’ trails featuring fantastic, never before seen sights for HZH3 Hash #150. There will be scenic hills and forests, of course, but also tea fields, lakes, lookouts, and cultural sites and other stuff you’d expect on a SCENIC HANGZHOU WEST HILLS FOREST PARK RUN.

This time there will be 3 Hash choices. There will be a long walk, a long run and a Ballbuster run. 这次有三个选择 – 长意漫步, 长跑 和 特长跑。

Hash 150 - Scenery 2 Hash 150 - Scenery 3

Here are the details of HZH3 Hash #150 “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run”:

Bus 公交:  Many buses stop at the adjacent GuDang bus station and many other buses stop on TianMuShan Road very near to the meeting point too. Go to the Google Map or BaiDu Map above and then look at the nearby bus stops to see if a suitable bus route is available for you.

Public Hire Bikes 共用自行车: Why not beat the traffic jams or get some extra exercise and ride a bike to the start? There are several Red Public Hire Bike points on TianMuShan Road very near to the meeting point.

After the #150 Hash we’ll have the “Circle” to award Down Downs (beer provided 免费啤酒) for transgressions of Hash etiquette or protocol, errors of judgement, and various other misdemeanours, and then everyone is invited to join us for the Bash (dinner 晚餐). NOTE: The Bash has a separate cost. 注意:晚餐是另一个费用.

You can expect HZH3 Hash runs roughly (or sometimes VERY roughly… if the hares had a big night out on the night before…) every other Saturday (i.e. fortnightly) and both runners’ and walkers’ trails will usually be set.

It’s fun, it’s social, it’s healthy (mostly…), so come along and be a part of it!!!

HZH3 Hash #149 – “The Who Let The Animals Out Run” – Re-HASHED

HZH3 Hash #149 – “The Who Let The Animals Out Run” – Sat, 11 October, 2.30pm – Starting at the Hangzhou Osmanthus Tea Garden

Hares for Hash #149 were Small Cups and Sweet FA. Small Cups has just recently moved to Hangzhou (to study French) from Xiamen. She helped set a course for the Xiamen Nash Hash earlier this year. It’s great to see her jump straight in to Hare duties here in Hangzhou too!

Unfortunately, Sat, 11 Oct, was a working day for most people, but 8 of us still made it out to the ManJueLong area for a great Hash. We had 2 visitors from Shanghai, Double Nipple Impact and Forest Dump. We also had 3 Hash Virgins (Just “Clara”, Just “Catherine” and Just “Iker”) – well done to each of you! Finally, it was great to see Just “Julian” along for his 2nd Hash with us. In fact, Just “Julian” got started early by walking all the way to the Hash start location from near the ZheDa YuQuan Campus!!!

The Hares set an amazing Hash trail (of course!) that included forest tracks, twisting hill side paths, mountain top lookouts, dark and spooky caves, a scenic beer check and tea field mazes. While we were setting the trail, I don’t know what happened, but near the end, Small Cups got lost when we separated to do separate parts of the runners’ and walkers’ trails… I didn’t have any mobile phone signal (damn you China Unicom!!!!), so I couldn’t contact her.  Later, in the Circle, I don’t know whether she or I should have been given a Down Down…. but, I gave it to her.  ;)  Anyway, I went ahead to meet the Hashers who had been waiting patiently at the start point for the Hares who were running a minute or two (or 30…) late. Luckily, Small Cups arrived just a few minutes later. By now it was already about 3pm…

After some quick pre-Hash instructions for the Hash Virgins. The 5 Hash walkers headed up the hill straight away though Lower ManJueLong Village then on through the twisty forest trail up South Peak while the Hash runners (the experienced SH pair and I) did another loop before joining the same trail. We caught up with the Hash walkers at the top of South Peak. After that we all headed down to WengJia Village to the beer check.

After a refreshing 15 minute break, with the clouds looking quite grey, the runners headed off first. We first descended to another cave and then climbed up above ManJueLong Village again to enter the tea field maze. The runners had extra bonus tea field maze and they had some fun looking for flour spots on the ground between the overgrown tea bushes. The walkers had a simpler route through this section.

A little bit of very light rain started falling in the last 10 minutes of the run and the walkers finished about 15 or 20 minutes later but didn’t get wet either. We ordered some beers and had a very basic Circle led by me and with lots of help from the other experienced Hashers (Thanks guys and girls!).  Four of us stayed around for a tasty, but over-priced Bash dinner (we’ll try a different farmer restaurant next time – I’m sure we’ll head back to this great Hashing area in a few month’s time).

See some of the action in the photos below.
