Minutes of Meeting

  • Apologies:   Sour Kraut Bone Collector
  • Previous Minutes:   For the record: this is the first meeting after the second enforced break to hashing due to Covid 19 restrictions. Our last run was No. 1907 on 28/12/2020.

    Read and approved. No matters arising.
  • Bookie Report:   Liberace first reported on the month of December, which showed a deficit of over 11,000 baht, but in the context of considerable extraordinary expenses for the month (Web Hosting renewal, PH3 Calendar, Xmas gifts) this was expected and acceptable. Moving forward with some figures for the year, we were informed that income derived from Rags and Raffle was down on the previous year, but the raffle still made a profit of approximately 65,000 b. Lib commended the beer police and VV for their work in regulating beer consumption, adding that average beer consumption was more or less exactly as per his budget at 170 baht per person. Over all, the club shows an operating loss of around 11,000 b for the year. This was agreed to be quite remarkable in view of our reduced income (due to Covid restrictions) and our continuing sponsorship of regular PH3 events.

    Lib finished by acknowledging not only those that work on behalf of the club but also those who support the club by means of their regular attendance.
  • Webmaster Report:   WKW began by explaining that he was gradually withdrawing from some of his roles that have generally been encompassed by the title of Webmaster. He has already, earlier in the year, handed over the day to day update of the ‘front end’ of the website to Dirt Looney, and also On Site records to Flatulence. Now he stated his intention to relinquish responsibilities for the database, and indeed the ongoing project to update the database after many years working on it. WKW stated that he would like to carry on as Hash Sheet Editor and some involvement with the security of the website. A new Database manager would need to be found. The Wizard expressed his disappointment at the timing of WKWs announcement as the subject of the formulation of the committee for 2021 had been under discussion for the last 2 months. Pussy Snatcher suggested that he may be able to offer assistance with the database and it was agreed to discuss this further, informally, at the end of the meeting. WKW was asked to confirm whether the upgrade to the database was completed yet as he had stated at the last meeting that it would be by this time. Further problems had beset the work and the upgrade has not been completed.
  • Brew Master Report:   VV reported that there were still some repairs needed to the truck, ie some welding, the tailgate lock. He has already procured new boards for the false base of the truck. As mentioned in the last meeting, a couple of the eskies are no longer serviceable and new ones acquired; the old ones would be made available for free to anyone who wished to collect them from VV. He also added that during the current restrictions, he would need to drive the beer truck once a week to keep the battery from draining.
  • Hare Raiser Report:   At the time of the imposition of restrictions the Hare Line was full. Spastic Whore King and Golden Rivet who were scheduled to hare the first run cancelled by the restrictions had indicated that they would be happy to step forward at short notice to hare upon short notice of a resumption of hashing.
  • Rags Report:   In the absence of SKBC, TW read out the rags report. Stock levels as expected; the viability of stocking women’s tops questioned and the invitation to buy excess stock from PJH3 made. It was agreed to defer all meaningful discussion n these matter until SKBC is in attendance.
  • On-on Bars Report:   No issues to report. All of our bars are looking forward to our return.
  • Special Runs:
    • The AGPU scheduled for the last Monday in January will be rescheduled as and when appropriate.
  • Other Business:
    • TW – invited comments on last month’s proposal regarding the election of the committee for 2021. There was a brief discussion regarding the position of Webmaster in the light of WKW’s recent announcement. However, to progress the issue it was suggested that in the short term WKW continue in this committee position. It was put forward that Database Manager be a Non-Executive committee position, as and when the position is filled. Nonetheless the new committee was unanimously voted in as per last month’s proposal. There had no expressions of interest from anyone other than the incumbent members.
    • Dirt Looney reported that over the year the effort to collect coins for the Take Care Kids Foundation, in conjunction with Nicky’s, had realised the grand total of 12,101 baht. It was acknowledged that this was an outstanding effort. Thanks were given to everyone that supported the cause and especially to DL for facilitating the whole process.
    • DL explained that with the resumption of NOSH Runs (Non-Official Hash) he would create a space on the website to provide relevant information. TW will ensure the same info is published on Fbook. Furthermore, if other members other than the regular ‘hares’ were willing to contribute to the laying of a Nosh trail they would be welcome to do so. In this event they should contact the Hare Raiser.
    • Lib expressed his dissatisfaction with the present Web Hosting company, Site Ground, based on lack of communication, increasing prices and early payments being taken without notice. However, we have paid in full for 2021 now, so we will have sufficient time to investigate if there are viable alternatives for future years.
  • New Business:
    • NEXT MEETING: 3 February, 16.00hrs, Nicky’s. This meeting may be rescheduled, dependant on Covid restrictions
    • MEETING CLOSED: 17.12 hrs. TW thanked everyone for their contributions today and throughout the previous year. Happy New Year.

Meeting closed and looking forward for another great month of hashing.

Show Scribe Report by Burl Ives

As this is the last Monday of our Annus Horribilus, (which her Majesty brought into popular use after she used it to describe 1992 - the year that the marriages of her two sons Charles and Andrew broke down and Windsor Castle caught fire), we are all full of hope for a better 2021.

Looking back on the year it might be useful for some who are new to hashing to understand the origins of hashing. Hash House Harrier roots extend back to the old English schoolboy game of “Hares and Hounds,” in which some players, called “hounds,” chase others, called “hares,” who have left a trail of paper scraps along their route across fields, hedges, streams, bogs, and hills. One of the earliest Hares and Hounds events on record was the “Crick Run” at Rugby School in Warwickshire, England, first held in 1837. (Thinks, did we not pass Rugby School last week?)

Back to the run, here’s the surprise of the year, a run set by mystery hares whose identity would be revealed through scrabble letters dotted along the trail. So, are we now Hash House Scrabblers, joining the likes of the ThaiVisa Editor “Rooster” who was a Scrabble World Champion some years ago? (BTW he writes a very amusing column, Sunday morning in TV called “That was the week that was”).

The A-site was by Spermy’s Lake, a scenic spot on the other side of the 331, easy to find along a reasonable dirt road. To keep the mystery going, Spermy (Sperm Polluter) acted as the run instructor detailing how long the run was: ca 8km, and walk was well short of 4km, with bags of Scrabble letters left under check signs.

So off we went, the walker’s trail for the first km was through trampled elephant grass, casava field boundaries then across a small stream, which I managed not to get all the way across with one shoe struck, it seemed permanently, in the soft mud. Shoe eventually retrieved without having to wade in the stream again, then on to a split and a leisurely walk back along a pleasant farmers track, 2.5km in total. The runners did not return for over 1.5h, with a bunch of shortcutters walking back in together. Between them they covered just over 8km, but were confused by the paper a few times. The walkers trail was perfectly marked so no complaints.

Time to play scrabble & discover the hares’ identity, didn’t take long to decipher Pussy Snatcher and Jellobut. Circle time and comments on the walk: “first ½ marking in 3D Technicolour, 2nd ½ 2D black & white”. On the run “not bad for a couple of retards”, “looks like a drunkards trail”. Liberace did his customary walk trail backwards, but found his own trail and got lost.

Waffle had the usual assortment of prizes and ecstatic screams. Ging Gang Gullie (GGG) was punished for loosing things on trail/A site. Awards went to No Trucking Idea: 100 runs and Paprika Smiley for 5 hares (it’s taken him over 20 years!)

SW2T's took the circle and struggled to find someone to punish, so picked on Seal Sucker for being an FRB/Short cutting or finding parallel trails so he could always come in first. GGG was attacked for not speaking to SW2T's in the TQ (is that relevant to today’s run?)

The GM took over for the highlight of the night the WOTY(Wanker of the Year) awards which were classified into 7 categories:
1. The hasher who is always at the front of the free food queue: Phantom
2. The hasher most likely to be found dead alone in his condo by neighbours complaining of the smell: Paprika Smiley
3. The hasher most likely to be killed by his partner: Golden Rivet
4. The hasher most likely to end up on the sex offender’s register: Sperm Polluter
5. The hasher most famous for Tourettes (profanity, swearing): Dirt Looney
6. The hasher most likely to be a COVID super spreader: Knickerless
7. The hasher most likely to die from a drink driving accident: Unstable Load
So from these 7 candidates the WOTY award was given, by popular demand, to KNICKERLESS
To round off the circle Pussy #3 had a birthday wish, Fuck Off was done for something and finally LCF proceeded to ice those who wanted to be iced?!
The Hares were then put on the spot to sign the hares’ song, but in response they performed the following rap:

Fuck Year 2020

Year 2020 was one fucked up time,
Pandemic with lockdown, curfew, and moonshine

Hashing was halted and beer bars went dead.
So the Mystery hares said stop all this dread

We’ll set a trail that no one can find,
But that doesn’t matter, we’ll just leave them behind,

Cause they won’t know who did this to them.
Well the hares are just pricks causing all this mayhem.

Year 2020 was one fucked up time
That unbroken check, that’s your problem not mine!

Keep going to the backcheck and we’ll get you lost
I’m drinking your beer and it’s at your cost!

Year 2020 was one fucked up time
The Chinese flu never made hashers whine.

That hare from Wisconsin and the one from Eugene
They spread the virus and now we Vaccine

Year 2021 will be better, you’ll see
Keep following paper, but don’t stop to pee

No worries no frets, the hares will bring beer
Fuck year 2020 and a happy new year

Well done hares: a good A-site, a good run, a great rap and another enjoyable evening in tropical SE Bangkok!

On On to 2021, Burl Ives.

Footnote: Bum Boy finally came in exhausted and safe at 20:30h after 11.4 km. Fortunately he had a torch, GPS and a phone with him. There’s a message in there for all of us!

On-On!  Burl Ives
