NASSAU HASH HOUSE HARRIERS

Welcome to the homepage of the Nassau Hash House Harriers, (Nassau, Bahamas). If you're in town visiting - on a vacation or for business - why not join us for a run or two? If you live here why not become a member of our friendly group? The Nassau Hash meets once every week for a run (walkers welcome).  After the event we have a few beers at a local bar - the "On In". In winter we meet on Sundays at 4pm (or, on occasion at 10:30am), and in summer we meet on Mondays at 6:30pm.  Contact us  by e-mail for further information. 

 

ABOUT HASHING

The Hash House Harriers (abbreviated to HHH or H3, or referred to simply as the Hash) is an international group of non-competitive running social clubs. An event organized by a club is known as a Hash or Hash run, with participants calling themselves Hashers or Hares and Hounds.

 

The objectives of the Hash House Harriers as recorded on the original club registration card dated 1950:

 

  • To promote physical fitness among our members.

  • To get rid of weekend hangovers and develop brand new ones.

  • To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it with good beer..

  • To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel (old bastards).  LOL.

There's a magazine, too, for God's sake!


 

 

HASH: Hash Run 2120:

WHEN :July 11 @ 3:00 pm

HARE: Saved by Molson

On on: Roberts Isle, Sandyport

Theme:

Run and Kayak

WEAR your Country’s Color!!

**If you don’t wear your country color, you will get egged ! I am NOT JOKING! You have been warned ! Take this seriously! Don’t get pissed off if you arrived without an outfit and get egged immediately. Make an effort don’t be a wanker, it’s not that hard! If you didn’t take time to read the hash instructions, it’s not my problem either! Yes, I am talking about you Surprise Boner!

This Hash will be a combination of running and kayaking. You will get wet . There will also be some games where you may get an egg on the face/body.

For the runners, Bring your best drinking game, this is a HEAVY DRINKING Hash run. You will be REQUIRED to finish a complete beer (not rushed) at the stops before moving on. Moreover, the “I don’t like beer excuse because I drink wine ”will not be tolerated . Some game punishment will also include some drinking. You have been warned! If you are on a diet or don’t feel like drinking… Join the walkers!

ONLY FOR RUNNERS. If I did not scare you too much already, please let me know in advance if you plan on attending this Epic Hash, I need to ensure we have enough kayaks for half the Hashers. This will be first come first serve, if at one point we exceed the number of kayak/runner ratio, the last to register will just run. For now, I have enough kayaks to accommodate 10 runners, I am sure we can get more kayak . Please let me know if you can bring a kayak/paddle board.

If you are a walker and have a kayak, feel free to bring it and kayak the whole time but read the beer drinking requirements above again, you will be subjected to the same rules as the runners.

Walker’s trail is no pressure leisure walk and it is dog & kids friendly.

Buckle up Hashers!

A few moments from our recent run

Poison Wood

Something to avoid when setting a run in the pineyard

Poison wood: avoid it like the plague if you are sensitive to it.  The colour of the leaves can vary from pale green to dark green and even purple, often with black spots on the older leaves.  The plants above are small, but they can grow much taller.  The active compound is urushiol which is used traditionally to make Japanese lacquer - by convicts at one time, I believe.  Brushing against the plant leaves a deposit on the skin, which leads to an unpleasant skin reaction.  Since the compound is oily it is not very easy to wash off, but using concentrated shampoo, body-wash, or washing-up liquid seems to work very well for many people, if applied promptly after contact.  An antihistamine cream (such as Banophen) seems to help a lot too.  I am not sensitive, but I did have some itchy bumps from cutting a lot of it down whilst setting a run.
