We're back! The hash has had a hard time of it with covid-19, as has everyone. We are having runs most weeks, usually on Sundays at 4 pm, but we don't always know where until the last minute. Call one of the number above if nothing is posted.

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 band? The Nassau Hash meets once every week for a run (or a walk). 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 hashing) 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 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 Sands beer..
To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel (old bastards). LOL.
Call Dave on +1 242 394 1711 or +1 242 565 7283 if you are stuck.
The announcement of the next run is normally posted by Saturday but sometimes it's later. Keep checking if you don't see one, we haven't missed a single weekly run since 1984! (Well at least, we hadn't until covid came along!)
Date and time: Monday 12 April at 6:30pm.
Location: Fox Hill Rd south, junction with Hanna Rd. Park off road on Hanna near Fox Hill Rd. Working on an On Inn but fallback will be tailgating - beer and snacks. Will advise on Saturday. Expect to start on time guys.
A great time was had by all. Watch this space for photos. Click here for details of the events.
We welcomed many old friends back to the Hash!
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. 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.

We did well again. Look at our results here:
Some teams did better than us, but just consider their averages ages compared to ours.
We fielded two teams. Thanks to those who came to cheer us on as we finished. Here are the complete results. Both teams appear to have been placed 8th in their groups.
