Hurricane Hash

Hurricane Hash History

After much beer drinking and discussion it was decided that another excuse for a Hash run was warranted and so it was decided that each bank holiday (first Monday in August) the Lake Macquarie Hash would gather to have a run. The first run was held at Warners Bay park with Muncher and Tails as the Hares. 22 runners assembled that night for the inagural run. A logo was designed that depicted the last defiant guesture of a Hashman out of control with his hand holding a glass of beer above the waters of the Lake. It was thought that this was just the thing for a "Lake Macquarie Hash" and would still be used had it never come true.

Jose, decided after the second run at the Belmont North Quarry, to document some of the history of Hurricane Hash in Volume 1 No. 1 of the L.M.H.3 Newsletter. Much like the runs and the members his ramblings are most entertaining and can be found attached at the bottom of this page. The newsletter set out some of the rules of Husrricane Hash which included at No 4. that the membership books for Hurricane were to be closed indefinitely and that the inagural 22 members were the only full members of LMH3. All other attendees in the future would only be "Visitors". Below are the "Rules" and Inagural members.

The Passing of Hurricane

Three years later on the 1st of August 1983, "Lake Macquarie" claimed one of Newcastle's Hashmen - Hurricane. After a run at Dudley, Hurricane was rowing across the lake to miss the "Booze Bus" when he fell out of his boat and was claimed by the Lake. Hurricane was a great Hashman and friend and in his memory and name, Lake Maquarie Hurricane Hash continues to run. Below is an article from the Newcastle Morining Herald detailing the sad event.


Hurricane Hash Logo

There are two Hurricane Hash logos, the original one depicted the last defiant guesture of a Hashman out of control with his hand holding a glass of beer above the waters of the Lake. After the passing of "Hurricane" it was decided to change the logo to one showing a Hurricane lantern to light the way safely home for Hashers.
