Panama City Hash House Harriers
Welcome to the Panama City, Florida Hash House Harriers, the Drinking Club with a Running Problem! Join us as we merrily lose ourselves through city streets, beautiful beaches, thick woods, and run in and out of bars, all in the glorious search of that golden nectar: BEER.
What is hashing?
The "hare" for the week sets a trail for the "hounds" to follow. The hash run follows an unpredictable cross-country trail laid with simple trail-marks (usually flour or chalk, otherwise known as "hash") showing the way. A crafty hare will set "false trails," trying to foul-up the Front Running Bastards (FRB's) in the group, thus allowing the pack the opportunity to catch up. To make sure that the group stays together, harriers yell "ON-ON" when they see a trail-mark and are heading in the right direction.
The history of the hash dates back to British Malaysia before the War. There are now hash chapters established in almost every country worldwide, thereby making the planet a less lonely place for many ex-pats who's postings take them to faraway places. The good news for us home-bound Yanks is that hashing has caught on in North America.
Since hashing has been around since the 1930's, different hash clubs have different traditions. Drinking, singing (drinking songs, of course), and other archaic diversions have been known to occur on the hash.
At trail's end hashers gather to drink beverage of choice and recognize the efforts, deceits, and folly of the hare. The Summit Circle is led by the Religous Advisor or other desiginated wanker. Traditions (and the degree of rowdiness) vary from hash to hash, but in general the Circle consists of awarding "Down-Downs" for misdemeanors real, imagined, or blatantly made up. Visitors are always given a Visitors Down-Down as are Virgins (first-time hash runners) and anyone else who comes to the attention of the Circle. So come on out and enjoy the fun!
