It’s a Hashing thing only you would understand.


Interhash Trinidad 2020


ad Cows, Old Farts, Ball Breakers, Bra and Pants and the Red Dress run are all part of the Hashing lingo that ‘Trinis’ are gonna have to get used to, because its coming in 2020.

Although the Sad Cow, the Founders run, and even maybe an ‘InterBash’ are not officially part of the Interhash lineup, they all will be part of the total Interhash Trinidad experience. Hash kennels from across the globe have asked to join the fun. The Bra and Pants have made it on to the official Saturday itinerary, as they will be hosting their run at the Ricks Micro- Brewery on the Malabar Farms in Arima, alongside the 12 other run trails the Trini hares have chosen. Beautiful, challenging trials have been chosen and 10 of them have already had their initial reccee. Trini teams are hard at work out there in the countryside every second Saturday putting things in place. The Bimbos have chosen the medium to easy run skirting the Chagaramas Golf Course and up into the foothills of the Nature Reserve there. The Cage Shakers have chosen the North Eastern Coastal Village of Rampanalgas, running through the rain forest, pass a waterfall and ending on the waters edge. The Big Dicks challenge you through the Arena Forest Reserve, a lush forested area populated with more wildlife than you can imagine. Natures best. The Rum Jumbies have gone to Central Trinidad for their trail in the Village of Piparo. As the excitement builds each team is challenging the others to create better runs.

Zagreb Croatia Saint Patrick’s Day Hash by Quick Drawers 26 Harrier


he Zagreb Hash typically hashes at 11 AM on Saturdays; however, on special occasions, such as St. Paddy’s Day, exceptions are made. This themed hash brought out a dozen regular members of the hash, along with attendance by visiting hashers “Choo Choo” from Bavaria and myself. The many sidewalk café’s and other establishments in the immediate vicinity of Zagreb’s main square - Jelacic Square, provided the location, for our Friday evening initial meeting with Zagreb’s long-term contact “Antibiotics”. Info was shared pertaining to their groups 40+ year history, their sponsorship of the mostly semi-annual “Dalmatian Hash”, a 7-day Cruise hash along Croatia’s popular scenic coastline, an including specifics for the following days hash.

t started in the early 90’s when a group of sporty and fun loving expats living and working in Taipei regularly met to enjoy running with the ‘China Hash House Harriers’ along the scenic mountain trails in Taiwan. The motivation: ‘Compensate the many long office hours with healthy outdoor activity followed by camaraderie and consuming lots of cold beer’. From that, and a common interest in mountain biking, came the idea organizing a week of off-road biking somewhere outside the island in the region. Kicking off with Sulawesi in 1993, a tradition was begun of a regular annual week of cycling in different Asian counties. This included, amongst others, a helicopter drop off in the snow in the Jomsom, Mustang area of Nepal in 1997 followed by cycling up the Kali Gandaki gorge to the Muktinath monastery and ending up along the lake in Pokara. 1998’s ride led through Thailand’s Chiang Dao National Park area. In 1999 and 2000, it involved the first-ever organized mountain bike groups cycling the Kingdom of Bhutan. 2002 saw speedy long-tail boats taking the group up the Mekong River and them following the Chinese border on Laos’s jungle trails. In 2006 the African continent was approached the first time with the team spinning the pedals in the very mountainous Kingdom of Lesotho, while in 2007 Tanzania was explored. Costa Rica, in 2013, was the only location in the Americas so far.

Mauritius H3 celebrates 800 Runs

t the end of April 2019, Mauritius H3 celebrated their 800th run in style with a weekend of 3 runs over 3 days and an invitation to international hashers with guest hashers from Nairobi, Delhi and Addis Ababa H3.

The event started on Thursday evening with welcome drinks at a local bar followed by dinner at a local lounge in the Grand Braie area in the north of the island. This was an opportunity to be reunited with familiar faces and meet new ones over a few beers and a meal.

A Guam Full Moon Hash


019 Calendars show the date 20 March, as being a Full Moon event. Based upon that and prior contact with both Agana and Full Moon hash contacts, I made arrangements in early December to join the Guam Full Moon hash on that date. Things in the hash world are like everything, subject to chance and they did. The Guam Full Moon hash changed the date of their annual Green Dress Hash to Friday March 22nd. It would then immediately precede the Agana Hash’s epic #1919 hash bash camping weekend starting on Saturday 23rd. Since my travel arrangements were set, with continuing travel to Saipan on that Friday, I needed an alternate plan.

"Tumbling"’Bill Panton (1927 - 2019) Bill Panton, known more affectionately as ‘Tumbling Bill’, was first posted from United Kingdom to Kuala Lumpur in 1953 when Malaya (as it was then known) was under British Administration. Along with many other government servants, he was billeted in the bachelor’s quarters behind the Selangor Club, known colloquially as the ‘Hash House’ as a result of the frequent appearance on the menu of ‘Corned Beef Hash’, a stew of salted beef and potatoes. He was naturally invited to run with the Hash House Harriers, amongst whom was Cecil Lee, one of its original founders. He first ran with ‘Mother Hash’ in 1954, but subsequently joined as a full member in 1958. Malaysia, as it became known after gaining independence from Britain in1956, began to reduce reliance upon her former colonial advisors and experts and eventually Bill took up an appointment with the World Bank in Washington DC where he founded the DC Hash on 23 May 1972. A spell with the World Bank on a posting in Thailand resulted in his founding the Bangkok Hash House Harriers on 11 June 1977. Upon retirement in 1992, Bill returned to his former home in Kuala Lumpur with his wife, Raja Aishah, cousin of the late Sultan of Selangor. Unfortunately, Bill was not able to enjoy retirement to the full as his wife passed away shortly after their return. This caused him to focus his mind elsewhere – to the establishment of the Hash Genealogy Project, which he subsequently dedicated to Raja Aishah. In early 1994, Bill could be seen with a large sheet of white paper laid on a glass topped table on his balcony, with a pencil, ruler and eraser, busy adding new hash chapters to an enormous family tree and constantly rubbing out and adding connecting lines to these chapters. For the 60th Anniversary of the Hash House Harriers at Interhash 98 in Kuala Lumpur, the first publication of the Hash Family tree was presented to the world. It had been prepared with the assistance of Mike Lyons and his trusty ‘Mac’, and showed the relationship of some 1,000 Hash chapters to the original ‘Mother’ Hash in Kuala Lumpur. 78 Harrier

At the same time, aware that making these data available for wider consumption would be essential, Bill enlisted the aid of Neil Campbell to adapt the genealogy data to a more friendly format for presentation. Consequently a lengthy roll of ‘A0’ plotter output was put on display in the Merdeka Stadium at Interhash ‘98. The display generated considerable interest, and lead to a flood of information being received from all over the Hash World. A later copy of this chart is still on display in the ‘Hash Room’ of the Royal Selangor Club in Kuala Lumpur. The last plotted version of the family tree was displayed at Interhash 2008 in Perth since with more than 2,500 Hash Chapters recorded, it became necessary to commit their details to the internet. A copy of the last printed version sits in a cannister in Kuala Lumpur, awaiting a suitable venue for display! Another outcome of Interhash ‘98 was the formation of the ‘Hash Heritage Foundation’, established to: manage and develop hash archives; hold an exhibition for Interhash ‘98; and play a key role in rebuilding the Hash House. (The original Hash House was demolished to make way for a road). Bill was a keen promoter of the Heritage Foundation, which received a donation of land from the Malaysian Government on which to reconstruct a ‘Hash House’. The picture above shows Bill with an architects drawing of one proposed structure. Right up to the end, Bill’s prime ambition was to see the rebuilding of the Hash House, and a more fitting tribute to his memory could not be made than helping this become a reality. Memorial runs for Bill have already been held in both Washington DC and Bangkok where donations have been received to this end, and a joint memorial run will be held on 29 September 2019 on the site of the proposed Hash House in Bukit Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. This event is being organised by Mother Hash; Petaling Hash; KL Harriettes; and the Royal Selangor Club Hash, all chapters in which Bill was a member. This will be administered by the Hash Heritage Foundation. An external, independent auditor has been appointed to ensure full accountability, with all details to be published on the website ( where further information can also be obtained. Please contribute to these very worthy causes – both the rebuilding of the Hash House, and the continuing development of the Hash Chapter Family Tree (the ‘Genealogy’ page of the website) – as a tribute to ‘Tumbling’ Bill Panton’s great achievements in the development and promotion of The Hash worldwide!
