Brooklyn 805

November 30, 2015 Yay!  Finally a trail where I showed my pretty face. Hare – Turd Dimension Start – the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall, because thinking of an original start location is too much effort. Trail was fine, I knew where the Hare lives, so I made educated guesses along the way which direction we should run.  This is the disadvantage of growing up in Brooklyn, I just plain know my way around.  My guess was that the on-in would be the Tip Top Bar, but noooooo I was wrong.  Turned out to be a new on-in, a pleasant surprise.   Now, thinking back,  I don’t remember the name of the bar, and quite frankly, THEY RAN OUT OF EVERY DECENT BEER THEY HAD.  It was as though they were willing to give us hash cash deals just to kick their shitty kegs.  Thanks Turd, we appreciate the vacuum job. Skidmark made an appearance to the BH3 and brought his “green” tincture.  So we move forward determined to make the Brooklyn Hash into the Hash Hash.   Down-Downs hare – turd dimension – shitty trail kim – virgin – she seemed cool and alas, she has not returned since. cum on moses and whoremaster – not knowing “on call” – really people?  Time for a lesson in calling trail.  When a hasher yells “on call” it means they are running a check, there are marks in that direction, but we are yet unsure if true trail goes that way.  Rule is 3-and-your-on, so if you see one or two marks, you are “on call.” sam – brooklyn virgin –...

Kh3 #93: Tales of the Knickerbocker H3

October 21, 2015 Writeup by Krispy Kringle Past, present and future met at the pre-lube at Emmons Tavern on October 21, 2015 as we celebrated Back to the Future Day. The trail was laid by Man-Doc Brown-Fun. It featured many check-backs, making it all a herky-jerky affair. But first we started off going in circles, ultimately managing our way west, south and then to the first drink check at the North end of Madison Square Park. Some brightly colored concoction was served in test tubes. We then staggered east from the park, then south, then west again. Mass confusion arose on Park Avenue. Super Dave managed to guide us to the second drink check at the South End of Madison Square Park. Spiked Gatorade welcomed our return. Faux Newspapers were distributed retelling some of the events from Back to the Future. Ultimately, we made it to the On-In, One Star. The trail ending up looking like this. In honor of the day, there were two Marty McFly’s on trail: Cosmo-Marty-McTits and Surprise-I’m Illiterate-Marty. There was also a Krispy Doc Brown. Various crimes were committed. Those responsible were held accountable: Geordi LaForeskin was the RA and doled out down-downs. Although there were virgins on trail; they escaped before receiving any abuse. The Hare was assisted by Surprise I’m Illiterate and Frank Lloyd Wrong. The latter did excellent work keeping a steady supply of suds flowing. Visitor, Foul Balls, was from San Francisco. And he had some prior NY Street Cred for taking on former Mayor Giuliani. Tech Use on trail was rampant, both Doggie Erectus and Cum Test Dummy were...

Brooklyn #790

Monday August 17th, 2015 Down-Downs awarded to: Our Hare – Sans Culottes Our Hare – for S-H-I-T-T-Y T-R-A-I-L – not enough checks, too many housing projects, good job anyway,  and a damn shitty on-in (on the roof of our hare’s building) A virgin – Todd Drug Bust – For auto-wanking and cuming to the on-in late. Rack’n’Roll Her – For being a dedicated hasher and taking half day off from work to set trail. Doggie Erectus – from Smashmouth as a random abuse of power, just ‘cuz, and to cheer up Doggie. Bringing Up The Rear – for a false accusation, but I don’t remember the accusation. Our Hare (again) – For not enough beer at the already cheap and shitty on-in on his roof, least he could do is supply a TON of beer. So, its true, I missed trail on this one, and the On-In was waaaaay out there in Crown Heights.  The NYC Skyline was but a faint glimmer in the distance.  Good thing there were no visitors, otherwise they would have been disappointed with our inability to show them the sites of...

Ian Cumming 1931-2015 (Hashing 1961-2015)

Ian was born in London, England in 1931, and hashing gained a future star (although it didn’t realize it at the time, as it was not started until 1938). In 1940, during the Second World War, Ian and his sister, like many other London kids, were evacuated to Canada. He liked to tell the story about how he and his sister were delayed on the trip from London to Liverpool, and missed the ship they were supposed to catch, a fortunate delay as that ship was torpedoed. In 1944, Ian returned to UK and to Uppingham School where he made a name for himself by being the first person to walk around Rutland, the smallest county in England, in 24 hours. He found walking with a pack on his back enjoyable so he joined the British Army in the Lancers (they of “Charge of the Light Brigade”). He also joined Esher Rugby Club, his first introduction to singing the many Hash songs he later so often entertained us with. In 1950, Ian climbed Mt. Snowdon in Wales and was immediately promoted to Second Lt., and in 1951, was drafted to Suez, Egypt, where there are no mountains at all. In 1952, he left the army and joined Gestetner, (for younger readers Gestetner made a stencil duplicating machine, which was great for running off hash circulars), where he worked until 1992. The company posted him to various countries in Europe and East Africa until, in 1956 he was sent to Indonesia where he met his future wife, Jane, who was working with MI6, the British secret service; presumably he was...
