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.
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.

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.
