Minutes of Meeting

  • Apologies:   Scar with 2 Ts
  • Previous Minutes:   Read and approved. No matters arising.
  • Bookie Report:   No activity since the last meeting due to Covid restrictions, no report submitted.
  • Webmaster Report:   WKW opened by announcing that he was standing down from his position as Webmaster and all associated duties. TW offered sincere thanks for WKW’s many years of service to the club.

    Pussy Snatcher gave un update on his work with the new website and database. Significant progress had been made and with a little more work will be ready to go ‘live’. However, it was agreed for the new system to operate in the background along side the current website for a short period to ensure no glitches.

    PS put forward a proposal to migrate the new site to web hosts, Blue Host, from our current hosts, Site Ground. This would save the club in the region of $600 over the next 3 years; this was voted on and accepted unanimously. PS will take responsibility for paying the bill to Blue Host.
  • Brew Master Report:   VV is happy with the quality of the repairs that have been carried out to the truck over the last few weeks. He has also got rid of the old eskies and is currently sourcing new ones. VV added that the vehicle tax is due next month. Lib thanked VV for his continuing hard work.
  • Hare Raiser Report:   At the time of lockdown the hare line was full until the end of March. Some adjustments were now necessary to accommodate the missed runs in January, including the AGPU, which will now be held on 15th Feb. Some dates in April are now available.

    It was noted that VV will reach the milestone of 200 hared runs next month. An unbelievable achievement that is most unlikely to ever be repeated. Congratulations to VV!
  • Rags Report:   SKBC suggested that once we have sold our last pair of socks in stock that we longer carry them as they are extremely slow to sell. Agreed. The same with Bush hats which were stocked as an experiment initially. Despite having 10 virgins at the last run we only managed to sell 2 shirts, due to a lack of smaller sizes. SKBC to order more stock. In addition, it was clarified that any shirts ordered for Special runs that were not sold by pre-order should automatically go to Rags stock.
  • On-on Bars Report:   No issues to report.
  • Special Runs:
    • Valentine’s day – as usual roses will be given to all females attending on the day. SP to procure.
    • St. Patrick’s Day – Hares will be sponsoring traditional drinks and some food.
    • St. Georges day – details to be finalised nearer to the time.
  • Other Business:
    • VV announced that there would be some ‘surprises’ on the upcoming French Connection run.
    • GGG thanked those responsible for Nosh runs throughout the recent lockdown.
    • TW reminded everyone that cameras, with the exception of Hash Flash, are not permitted in the 2nd circle.
    • Pussy Snatcher was unanimously voted in as Webmaster to replace WKW.
    • Plans for the traditional Beach Party to be put on hold pending developments with regard to restrictions in the community, due to Covid.
    • It was agreed to establish the 2nd run in March and the 2nd run in October as future change over points for the time of the commencement of the first circle. Thus, on 8 March we will resume our ‘Summer Schedule’. 1st circle will commence at 16.30, and the last baht bus will depart from the Buffalo Bar at 15.30 hrs.
    • TW thanked everyone for their contributions to another fruitful meeting.
  • New Business:
    • NEXT MEETING: 3rd March, 16.00hrs, Nicky’s.
    • MEETING CLOSED: 17.02 hrs.

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

PH3 Mis-Management Meeting
Minutes of Meeting - Monday, January 6th 2020

<< Minutes Index Page

Attendence:  The Wizard, Liberace, Wank Kings Wanker, Sperm Polluter, Flatulence, VV, Unstable Load, Scar, Dirt Looney, Ballringer, Pussy Snatcher, Paprika Smiley, Ging Gang Goolies, Stupid Kraut Cunt.

Recorded by:  The Wizard

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.

PH3 Mis-Management Meeting
Minutes of Meeting - Wednesday, December 9th 2020

<< Minutes Index Page

Attendence:  The Wizard, Liberace, Wank Kings Wanker, Sperm Polluter, Unstable Load, VV, Flatulence, Dirt Looney, Pussy Snatcher, Spastic Whore King, Paprika Smiley, Arse van Hole, Smokey Trucky Fucky, Mr Bean, Crap Thai

Recorded by:  The Wizard

Minutes of Meeting

  • Apologies:   Sour Kraut Bone Collector
  • Previous Minutes:   Read and approved. No matters arising.
  • Bookie Report:   Liberace reported an operational profit of around 4,000 baht for the month but warned that we would expect to show a loss for the year. Average sign ups for the month were 66, and for the year 75, which is only 6 down on the same stage last year. All in all, the economy is in good shape considering the restrictions we have faced this year.
  • Webmaster Report:   Wank Kings Wanker announced officially that he would resume his role after a period side-lined due to health reasons. He told us that Dirt Looney would carry on assisting with the day-to-day tasks and keeping the front pages of the website up to date. This would allow WKW to concentrate on the ongoing upgrade of the database, which he assured would be completed before the next MMM. DL added that there was an operational issue with the photo gallery on the website which has prevented the publication of photos for the last couple of weeks. WKW to attend to this matter asap.
  • Brew Master Report:   VV has sourced somewhere to do the necessary welding work to the subframe of the truck but still has not had the time to get this work done; he has also sourced replacement board material (which the eskies sit on) and will procure in due course. He further advised that most of the eskies are extremely old and been repaired multiple times, but the time to finally replace them will soon be upon us.
  • Hare Raiser Report:   Sperm polluter advised that the hare line for February was now open and only 2 spaces remained vacant, but Jan 4th is also still open. A suggestion from the floor that some hares were being used too often was dismissed as at the present time, due to COVID-19, we have fewer volunteers. Anyone suggesting otherwise would be encouraged to volunteer their services to give the relatively small number of regular hares a chance for a break.
  • Rags Report:   In the absence of SKBC The Wizard advised that there was little change in stock levels as sales have been very slow. He also forwarded a request from SKBC to consider buying some socks from PJH3 who currently have an excess stock. A brief discussion determined that this wasn’t appropriate at this time but could be considered in the future.
  • On-on Bars Report:   Liberace led a brief conversation about the viability of reintroducing TQ to the rota. The consensus of opinion was that it wouldn’t be of any benefit to TQ or us as numbers would be expected to be very low. Everything else is in good shape.
  • Special Runs:
    • The conditions for the Xmas run were discussed and it was agreed to, as usual, give presents to the ladies and children (TW will procure and wrap) and that VV would cook a BBQ. Arse Van Hole offered to take the role of Father Xmas in the expected absence of Emperor Airhead, and WKW will collect the costume from EA. (Edit: since the meeting Paprika Smiley has kindly volunteered to sponsor the BBQ)
  • Other Business:
    • • TW distributed a list of proposals for the committee for 2021. Present members all agreed to make them-selves available for next year although other proposals would be welcomed. The present list of committee members on the website is out of date and comprised of too many (some defunct) positions. TWs proposal also included creating an executive committee (with voting rights) and a non-executive committee. Proposal is attached and will be voted on at the next MMM.
    • • VV advised that the regular beer police were hares next week and would need to be replaced. TW will do so on the day.
    • • SWK commented on some indiscreet photos of hashes elsewhere appearing on social media. This led to a reminder that no phones or cameras, other than the official hash flash should be used in the second circle. TW to remind members of this in the circle.
    • • Pussy Snatcher asked whether there was a policy regarding smoking on the baht buses. This pre-empted another question from TW about reports of members smoking cannabis on the buses which had been reported to him over the last week or so. It was confirmed that this has indeed been happening. Members were reminded in no uncertain terms that a decision was made by the committee last year to ban members who smoke drugs around the circle or in the baht buses. However, at this time a proposal was made by TW to ban all smoking on baht buses in an effort to curb this particular situation without resorting to banning individuals. The committee voted in favour of this proposal by 6-1. This decision will be published on the website and Facebook.
    • • Dirt Looney reminded us that Lord Chicken Fucker’s next run will be his 1200th.
    • • Mr Bean enquired as to whether or not we had considered using other forms of transport other than baht buses. This is a question that arises periodically and we have yet to find a better deal than the one we have with our regular baht bus drivers.
    • • Lib commented on the manner in which awards are presented and achievements recognised in the circle as often facts are incorrect and presented in an incoherent manner. TW added his agreement to this and it was agreed that a new awards presenter be appointed for the circle (Edit: Sperm Polluter has subsequently agreed to take on this role)
    • • TW thanked everyone for their contributions to what had at times been a difficult meeting.
  • New Business:
    • No New Business

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