It was also agreed to award a bell for 5, 15, and 25

Traditions

All were in favor of continuing the traditions of our Mother Hash (Biloxi H3) in whole or with slight variation, and those that didn’t like it could kiss our asses. These tradition include:

Live Hares (10 minute head start)

The hash will begin with hares away, welcoming visitors then virgins, singing Father Abraham, and chalk talk

Hares may leave up to 1/4 mile CB or BT (in other words, just because you find 3 or 4 hash in a row doesn’t mean True Trail)

Crimes against the hash

  • New shoes
  • Using one of the two “R” words that end in “ule” or “ace”
  • Nerd names
  • No hash attire (after 1st SH3 hash)
  • No noise making device (after naming)
  • Being competitive
  • Private parties at the circle
  • Smoking in the circle
  • Anything else the hash deems as a violation

Down-Down’s

All vessels, upon leaving the lips, will be place squarely on the skull. Those who try to cheat by bending their head or body backward, forward, or to the side to avoid being soaked by the holy hash beer will pay for their crime by doing it till they get it right (or pass out.)

No unauthorized skull attire except for ‘scrunchies’ for harriettes. This includes sunglasses, stocking caps, condoms, etc.

New shoes will drink out of shoe of choice (left or right)

69th Down-Down will be upside-down

Departing hashers will drink from shoe of choice with filter of choice

Namings

  • Hasher must have at least 5 hashes
  • Under special circumstances it may be 5 or less
  • Two or more named hashers required for a vote. This number will change as the hash grows.

Mismanagement

The following positions were agreed on:

  • GM- Yeasty Boy
  • RA- .Cum
  • Haberdasher- Hercum 10
  • Others (i.e. Beer Winch, On=Sec, Hare Raiser, etc.) TBD (open)
  • Missionary- sure it’s o.k., but not all the time

Future Hash

  • The idea was floated for having a Halloween Hash in Frankenstein (open)

Old Business

 None

Mismanagement was closed and drinking practice continued for a couple more hours
