Minutes of Meeting

  • Apologies:   Nil
  • Previous Minutes:   Read and approved. No matters arising.
  • Bookie Report:   Liberace reported a deficit of 12,500 baht for the month, (3,000 for the year) due mainly to exceptional expenses lately. Average number of sign-ups for the year is 78, one less than this time last year, but we expect this differential to increase over the remainder of the year due to the lack of visitors.
    Raffle sales and profit are good but not surprisingly sales of Rags are minimal. Beer consumption is within expected levels.
  • Webmaster Report:   Dirt Looney, who has been covering the duties of the webmaster recently, reported that the website is pretty much up to date. No issues, but we do expect the webmaster to be out of action for at least another month. Best wishes to WKW and thanks to DL for taking over at short notice.
  • Brew Master Report:   VV told us that the truck still needs some reparative welding; he will attend to this as soon as practicable, and pay the truck insurance which is due this month.
  • Hare Raiser Report:   Sperm Polluter advised us that the hare line was in reasonable shape. Hares are required for the last run in November and a few dates in December.
  • Rags Report:   No report offered in the absence of the Rags master.
  • On-on Bars Report:   Numbers attending the on on bars are fairly low but proportionate to the number of hashers using the baht buses. However, it was felt that as a group we should encourage hashers to come to the on on bars, to offer support to the bars. The possibility of replacing Buffalo bar with Hustlers was discussed. Liberace to visit Hustlers to chat to the management there before any decision is made.
  • Special Runs:
    • 1900th run – free BBQ and free raffle with Spin the Wheel.
    • There will be no Octoberfest Run this year.
    • Halloween – there will be extra snacks, circle entertainment, a pre order shirt (approved by the committee) and the usual fancy dress competition.
    • Loi Krathong – prizes for the best costume and best Krathong.
    • No beach party this autumn.
  • Other Business:
    • 2021 special run calendar: TW produced a schedule of special runs for next year. Approved by all.
    • • DL – informed us of the arrangement for the funeral of King Yao Yao and it was agreed that PH3 would provide a wreath. He also informed us of Siam Sunday hash on Oct 11th and suggested if sufficient PH3 members wished to attend, a baht bus could be organised (at the rider’s cost).
    • • UL requested permission to procure 4 shirts for the Beer Police. Agreed.
    • • VV explained the importance of hares giving notice if they are bringing extra snacks or food to a run as this directly impacts the sale of sandwiches after the run. Recently there has been wasted sandwiches when hares have brought extra snacks unannounced. To be mentioned in the circle and SP to mention to all hares.
    • • Liberace expressed his gratitude to DL for his work on the website and database recently.
  • New Business:
    • No New Business

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

PH3 Mis-Management Meeting
Minutes of Meeting - Wednesday, August 5th 2020

Recorded by:  The Wizard

Minutes of Meeting

  • Apologies:   Nil
  • Previous Minutes:   Read and approved. An amendment to be made, insertion of word ‘Qualified’ before sign ups in the paragraph regarding free shirts on the upcoming Vets run.

    It was agreed that this year’s give away would be a shirt sponsored to the tune of 10,000 baht by WKW, (any other cost to be borne by PH3) and would be available to all qualified sign ups on the day.

    Discussion about Hoodies for rags deferred till international borders are reopened.
  • Bookie Report:   Liberace reported an operating loss of 22k this month, mostly due to exceptional costs (office supplies for Lib and WKW) and reduced income, however we are still showing a small profit for the year so far. Average sign up for the month was 54, which is lower than usual and below the number we need to break even. Liberace urged us as a club to exercise caution with our finances in the coming months.
  • Webmaster Report:   WKW arrived just as the meeting was nearing its end and delivered no report this month.
  • Brew Master Report:   Small maintenance issues for the truck, nothing else of note reported by VV
  • Hare Raiser Report:   2 dates remain free in September and October has just been opened to the hareline. Confirmation will be sought for a proposed Harriette’s run in October.
  • Rags Report:   Business is understandably quiet at the moment. No new stock will be ordered this month.
  • On-on Bars Report:   No issues. We have resumed our 3 bar rota till further notice.
  • Special Runs:
    • The Vets run in September will feature a free shirt and free runs for all those who attend and qualify by virtue of having attended 50% of the calendar years runs (19 this year). No extra shirts for rags will be ordered.
    • Decisions on Octoberfest and Halloween runs will be deferred till next month when there may be more info on tourists being permitted entry into the Kingdom.
  • Other Business:
    • TW - referred to the subject of Hares Free runs and credits that was brought to the table last month. He produced a framework for discussion which was subsequently voted on and carried unanimously. See below.
      ‘’Standard Run - This is a run where the Hares do not provide food, shirts or any significant sponsorship (including themed runs which do not appear as Special runs on our calendar). 2 Free runs/4 hare credits. If hares choose to provide some form of significant sponsorship on such a run, they should inform the committee in advance for consideration to be given to extra runs/credits.
      Special Run – as per PH3 Calendar. As above, unless Hares provide sponsorship in the way of food (not extra snacks) and/or shirt or similar run memento in which case 4 Free runs / 6 hare credits.
      Any other exceptional cases, such as Octoberfest/Aussie day run where sponsorship by the hares is significantly in excess of normal, to be considered on its own individual merits by the committee before the run but with an absolute maximum of 8 Free runs and 8 credits.
      I think it is necessary for us to put a cap on free runs and credits to prevent the current trend of exceptionally high numbers of hares on runs, and to clarify the club’s position to reduce disagreement on the subject. However, we need to strike a balance where we do not discourage hares from volunteering and those that do are appropriately recognised. Whilst hares occasionally provide some free drinks and or extra snacks this in itself does not warrant extra free runs or credits, in my opinion.
      The GM retains the right to award a free run in exceptional circumstances.’’
    • Na Hee Man enquired whether or not we would be restocking rags with shorts as before. Advised that shorts were removed from the inventory due to very low sales.
    • VV reminded us that next week we will return to down downs in the circle, but with single use disposable cups. Members should be alerted to the option of using personal drinking vessels.
    • Dirt Looney volunteered and will start to produce a guide to laying a trail for hares and a guide to our checks for everyone. He also suggested that we could resume taking photos in the circle for publication on the website. He will deselect photos that may be considered to compromise us in terms of social distancing.
    • WKW apologised for his late arrival and requested, and was given, authority to buy a new hard drive for the dedicated PH3 computer that he works on.
    • Liberace expressed some concerns regarding the sharing of duties between WKW and DL. It was explained that there had been some difficulties but these had been resolved.
    • Arse Bandit made a request for the PJH3 to regularly hire our beer truck. Advised that the committee would consider the request and make a decision at the next meeting.
    • All present were thanked for their contributions.
  • New Business:
    • No New Business

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

Minutes of Meeting

  • Apologies:   Unstable Load
  • Previous Minutes:   Read and approved. No matters arising.
  • Bookie Report:   Liberace reported a small profit for the month and a small ongoing profit for the year. Average number of sign ups is good, on a par with last year and beer consumption is back to a more usual level. This is a good situation considering the circumstances under which we operate at the moment.
  • Webmaster Report:   WKW had little to report. When asked, he confirmed that publishing the MMM minutes would be a priority as this has not been done since February.
  • Brew Master Report:   VV told us that some small routine servicing had been carried out on the truck but it also needs some welding around the cab area to remedy some areas of corrosion. VV is happy to attend to this. Everything else is in good order.
  • Hare Raiser Report:   The November hareline was opened a couple of days ago by Sperm Polluter, and 3 runs have already been taken, leaving only 2 dates to be filled between now and the end of November. Good work by the hare raiser and thanks to hares for volunteering.
  • Rags Report:   SKBC reported that all is well, value of stock stands at around 26,000 baht and he has shirts of all sizes. No issues.
  • On-on Bars Report:   We maintain a 3 bar rota but some discussion was had regarding the continuing viability of the Buffalo Bar, where prices are high and food is of low quality. We are open to suggestions for possible alternate venues.
  • Special Runs:
    • Due to current circumstances most special runs have been cancelled, however confirmation will be sought regarding the Loy Krathong run, which is traditionally hared by Harriettes. SP to seek clarification on this matter.
    • TW stated that he had some ideas of how to mark our 1900th run without spending too much money. Details will follow after a little more research into costs etc has been carried out.
  • Other Business:
    • Request by PJH3 to hire the beer truck. The GM of PJH3, Arse Bandit, had been asked at our last meeting to bring a proposal to the committee prior to this meeting but had failed to do so. Consequently, a lengthy conversation regarding the use of the truck was entered into. The main point of contention was gaining assurances from AB in the event that the truck be damaged or suffer breakdown whilst with PJH3. Eventually The Wizard tabled a proposal that outlined the broad terms for the rental of the truck and involved drawing up a contract for this at a later date. All PH3 committee members voted in favour with the exception of one abstention. (The contract, when completed will be attached to these minutes).
    • She’s the Boss suggested considering outsourcing various aspects of the club’s operation in conjunction with other Pattaya Hash clubs.
    • Dirt Looney made a request for funds to purchase a spare battery for our camera and also to provide a wreath for the funeral of recently departed hasher, Stephen "Floating Feces" Beard. Both agreed to.
    • Na Hee Man described a process employed in Phuket where virgins are incentivised to return to the hash via free runs and discounts on purchasing their first hash shirt. Generally agreed that encouraging virgins to return is good sense and that various ways of doing so would be considered.
    • AVH complimented Dirt Looney on producing the ‘In Memoriam’ poster which was attached to the beer truck at the Vets Run, as this allowed him and other members to put faces to the names of those who had passed in the last 12 months.
    • Liberace expressed his personal concerns about the Thai economy and the possibility of some problems within the banking system, thus he asked members to report if they became aware of relevant information on this matter.
  • New Business:
    • No New Business

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