BREAKING NEWS! PASSING THE BATON TO THE NEXT GENERATION
Gunpowder Plod hands Webshite reins to 9IC following secretive behind closed doors meeting. A senior civil servant, who asked not to be named, said of the momentous event, "Hash House what? Never heard of them".
Webshite duties shall now be carried out by someone who was at least born within a decade or two of the invention of the internet, who is well versed with clicking on buttons and stuff and knows what a "meme" is. Expect things to get a lot weirder.
The outgoing senior Webshite celebrated by riding his skateboard down the nearest hill, and was last seen travelling along Sai Kung's Wan King Path, for reasons unknown. An artist's impression of the scene is captured below:
This coming 29 January 2017 marks the 2000th run of the Shek Kong Hash House Harriers, a momentous event in the long history of the Shek Kong Hash.
Our hares Moonie and Golden Balls have some cracking trails lined up in previously inaccessible border areas only opened to the public this year. We’re going to have a great event with food, entertainment and beer.
Sign up before 31 October to enjoy a substantial early bird discount. Runs + Beer + Food + T-shirts + Bus + Entertainment = HK$250 for male. From Nov 1 the price will be HK$350.

EMAIL FROM GM 19Jan15
Great run yesterday and thank you Farty Pantz and Walky Talky for a thoroughly great afternoon.
As mentioned yesterday, in the circle, there are a couple of dates I would like to point out to you if you are interested.
I would like to try and make the evening dinner's we have been attending, more and more lately, into a regular thing. Say once a month. Everybody enjoys it, so why not. The Taj Mahal is a great place. Good food, plenty of food, loads of cheap beer, great price and an enjoyable place just round the corner where we can further relax and have a night cap.....or 2!!!
Now, if we do succeed in getting out once a month, the Taj Mahal is going to get pretty boring. So, anybody who has any suggestions on decent places to go, reasonably cheapish and with something to keep us occupied till about midnight, then please, don't keep it to yourself!
Anyway, it is planned to go out in 2 weeks time, (Taj Mahal) Saturday 31st Jan. Hands up please so that we can provisionally book a table.
No Name and Count Von Count are organising a joint birthday and wedding anniversary on the 21st February. Again, this is planned for the Taj Mahal. Names please closer to the time. I will ask at the beginning of Feb.
Philippine Nash Hash. 18th-21st March in Angelese City. Easy to get to as you can fly straight into Clark Airbase which is only 10 minutes (apparently) from the City Centre. Enrol online. I think it is still US$100 dollars registration, but is due to go up at some time closer to the date.
There is a N2TH3 Hash away in April also to the Philippines. Velcro Lips has the reigns on this one and most of those interested have already signed up. Not sure if there is still time for others to sign up, but I think it is over the Easter period and if you are interested, contact Velcro.
1st May brings Labour Day (bank holiday). This is a Friday. Planning a hash away to Macau on this weekend. Had a great time last time. This time gives the added bank holiday in which to relax over there. So makes it a decent few days.
Was planning a Lamma run on 21st June. But, Dragon Boat is the 20th so maybe change it. We will see.
We could try and squeeze a camping trip in too if anybody is up for it, before it gets warm.
Comments please. Thanks.
TAG HASH RULES
"This perverse hash variation was spawned by those poor, loyal
critters who turn up at Leafy Glade when all the organised, rich
hashers are somewhere else at a confab, or too hungover, or its
pissing down, or all of the above. The renegades who founded this nonsense
were Golden Balls, Salesman, Dingaling, Rocky, Britarse and Liberace
Later aficionados include Walky Talky, Go West, Eunuch, Dram (we can’t catch him in Lam Tsuen) and even odd-types like Rapunzel and Bogbrush.
There are no rules, but the guidelines are thus:
Chalk divided between hashers present (growing from four plus
three dogs, to seven and one dog)
First live hare given 3 minutes. (Subsequent live hares given 1 minute - Plod)
New hare takes over (either a keen one or selected by the pack)
when current hare is either:
a) Caught, stuck
b) Gives up, exhausted, injured
c) Stops under ‘honour’ as lead is too great, getting boring (max 10 mins per live hare)
The pack regroup (physically but usually not mentally), and the
new hare tears off.
It’s hardcore, fast, furious, creative, wet, intense, competitive and
knackering. There are no boundaries. Twelve-foot-high walls, chainlink
fences, buses, pig sties, temples, houses, sheds and gardens act as
props or somewhere to rest and hide, not obstacles.
Anyway – anyone who hasn’t done it yet, or doesn’t like it, or is
content to get back to Leafy Glade with bleeding cuts and a faux-collapse
in a pool of sweat, is a big POOFTAH and is not cliquey enough for
SKH3. – Salesman
