Bay of Islands

HISTORY:

Bay of Islands Hash was the brainchild of Moogabee and Pokin Out (also known as Keith Kietzmann and Deb Clarke). After an experimental couple of runs they finally had their inaugural run on 6 May 2007. It was well attended by hashers from their mother Hash, Mt Mangonui. Humpy the current NZ GM and Perky his wife came along with a number of Mount Hashers to give us a boost.  Other from the Mount and Auckland included Snag, Orgy, Stamen Two Jugs, Shunter, and Captain from Auckland. Pet Roll, K Gel. DG, Wooly Jumper, Silver Tongue, Lucifer, TeazeMaid and Keyless attended as well. Due to the strong influence of Mount Hash many traditions have been followed. There is always the obligation piss stop at some stage during the run and a fine circle at the end of the run. The idea of the running toilet as the emblem for Bay of Islands Hash was inspired by blunderbuss at toilets in colour (Hundertwasser).  And obviously with us all talking and drinking toasts which felt quite comfortable with hashers in the toilet, the running toilet became our emblem.
 
We have a toilet, which is suitably decorated, after being given to us by our neighbours Whangarei Hash (WH5). Bay of Islands has had its numbers falling and rising since that first run, with numbers between 5  to 35. We have never stopped hashing, although in the winter- time a few years ago we went to fortnightly.   We entice and welcome anyone along and have had a colourful and mixed bunch on our trails over the years.  We welcome children and dogs and if you need a lift, bed or any information about the area, we do our best to accommodate. We have a notice in the weekly free rag and have thus caught the eye of several potential and seasoned / overseas hashers. Our regular numbers are about 12-15.
 
We have just reached 559 (19/3/18) runs and have had AGPU weekends over the years and parties to celebrate special run numbers. Most runs in the hash are Tightbolt 329, Screw Loose 327 and Knose 323.
 
We run on Mondays at 6pm and cover the wider Bay of Islands area (between Kawakawa and Kerikeri) On public holidays we may decide to meet earlier.
 
Run fee $10.00 and byo drinks (the fee covers hash run, piss stop and kai)
 
A relatively small but perfectly formed hash we welcome anyone to come and hash with us in the Winterless North and look forward to hearing and seeing you on on trail.

Whangarei HHH on run.jpg

Whangarei

HISTORY:

The hash has seen a resurgence in recent years and now boasts a younger brigade of some 20-25 runners most hash nights, greatly outnumbering the walkers.  Family connections have contributed to this resurgence.

Mangawhai Heads.jpg

Mangawhai Heads

HISTORY:

Founded in 2006 by SHARKEY, PHANTOM and PLUNDER, all ex-Auckland Hash or Auckland Hussies. The MHHHH came about when a number of Auckland hashers purchased properties at Mangawhai and found themselves spending most long weekend there. Run number 1 was held on New Year’s Eve 2006 with 19 attending. Runs are held on the Saturday of most long weekends as well as the traditional New Year’s Eve run. Runs normally start at 1500NZST (3pm), or 1600NZDT but can be delayed if there are too many Englishmen frightened to go out in the midday sun. Runs can include a mixture of village streets, farm land, forest, beach and bush.

Runs will also be held on demand for visitors, all we need is a few days notice.

Hasher numbers vary from a record of 71 to a low of 2. The most notable run so far was the MHHHH pre-amble to Nash Hash 2017 when in early Feb 71 turned up for an outstanding run around the environs of Mangawhai. There was a ball breaker, long medium and short options as well as a short stroll for the aged and infirmed. We also now hold a run to co-incide with the annual Mangawhai Walking Weekend which is a major event on the Mangawhai Calendar. An integral part of the walling weekend is the Food and Wine Festival. A great occasion to wind down from the stresses of a stroll in the morning.

There is a small cadre of hashers (SHARKEY, TATIE, NAILBAG, GREENPIECE and PUFF) who now reside permanently in NZ’s fastest growing town (pop 2500) and call the MHHHH their home hash. MHHHH has been represented regularly at NZ Nash Hash, and PUFF gets to as many hash events around the world as he can.

MHHHH is a self-catering hash. $3 for the bucket but BYO drinks and nibbles for the circle. Often, but not always, there will be a pot luck dinner on the evening following the run.

There is no committee. SHARKEY was appointed GM for life at the inaugural run, mainly because no one else would do it. PUFF is the GM in waiting in the event of the early demise of the current office holder.

Mangawhai is not just famous for our expensive sewage treatment plant we are also the fastest growing seaside town between Pakiri and Waipu and can offer a wide variety of hashing territory (except pavement…yay).

We are up to 73 runs (in 8.5 years). We have increased our runs per year in recent years so our 100th is less than 3 years away – Watch this space.  Most runs are Sharkey 65, Plunder 54 and Phantom 52.

Auckland Hussies.jpg

Auckland Hussies

HISTORY:

Auckland Hash House Hussies first run occurred on the 1st February 1978. Ann Bennett set the run from the Leopard Tavern, Freemans Bay which still exists but has changed its name numerous times over the decades. Six hussies were present, all who are long forgotten. Auckland Hussies started as a result of the female partners of the Auckland Hash wanting to run as well. They were excluded from running with the men’s group due to the fact that they were woman. This is still the case today, but who cares.

In those early times, no men were allowed to run with the Hussies. Over the years men slowly became a feature. First a couple of token males to keep the Hussies safe on the cold and wintery nights, then more arrived when they realised that females were actually good company and could run. Then the Hussies gave them duties such as bringing the beer keg and laying a trail or two. Now they are even allowed on to the Committee, although never as Grand Mistress.

In those first few years Hash names were not prominent, but now all Hussies [female and male] have hash names. A newby normally gets a name after about 5 runs or if they do something memorable.  

A normal Hussies night starts at 6:30 every Tuesday night, rain or shine, somewhere within the Auckland region usually close to someone’s home if not from it. Runs are between 6 and 8 km long and are followed by a circle with many a fine with hash songs, usually great food, drink, company and lots of laughter. As the hussies have mostly matured the runs have become walks for a few. Therefore all abilities are now catered for. 

Runs are from Hussies home, a reserve or a cheap restaurant. The charge is $15 for most runs which covers food and drink. Drink include; various beers, wine, softies and mixes.

There is an annual renewal/rotation of all committee members: Grandmistress, HashCash, Trailmaster/mistress, Fines/RA mistress, Brew Master, Haberdasher.

Run 2000 was in December 2015 with a very fine weekend event. The Hash is now up to 2110 at mid April.   Highest runs are Magpie 1299, Plunder 1214, Phantom 1112, Coy Boy 964 and Crude 852.

Auckland Mens.jpg

Auckland

HISTORY:

Oldest Hash club in NZ as can be seen by the motley old pack.

Established 1970.  

Just cracked the 2500 run mark mid 2017.   In April 2018 around 2540.

DEMON DAVE our most prolific runner, now up to 1880 runs April 2018.  Nearing 1500 are Shakespeare on 1462 and Obs on 1452.

  2. website Aucklandhashhouseharriers.co.nz  which has updates on our coming runs.

We organise a Rangitoto Island run Feb every year with Split Bums welcome.  

Until recently we also organised “ROUND THE BAYS” for the hash but Auckland Council sold the rights to Fairfax and now the Aussie bastards charge $35 a head “Head who said Head….)   Anyway no hash attendance now

Our minor disasters include,

  • Coastguard rescue of BANANAS and DEMON from the mud flats at Pt Chev,

  • Coastguard rescue of BOARING all busted up on Rangitoto,

  • Auckland trampers rescue of PILES from Waitakere ranges  (He was lost overnight and we were late to the piss stop that night.  Poor form)

Most memorable run was an ordinary Monday with the run from South Auckland.  After a short run we boarded an old DC3 and were told to sit and strap in by the suitably attired hostess.  To the surprise of all the old bitch took off (The plane). We did a few laps of the Sky tower and landed at Whenuaipai.  We did a run around the base and flew back Ardmore. Well done PHANTOM and ARKLES.

Norwest

NorWest

HISTORY:

The idea of the Norwest Hash Harriers was conceived by a group from Auckland Hash House Harriers (Butcher Bill, Catweazle, Roscoe and Colonel Sanders).  The philosophy behind NWH3 was gourmet food (a substantial meal to be put together by the hares) which is still the case today, and that we are based in West Auckland  (ie. Norwest of the city). Both of the ideals remain true today although we are known to have the odd run over on the North Shore or the central City.

The inaugural run was held on 12 April 1988 and we were joined by the then iconic mayor of Waitakere City, Tim Shadbolt, although he didn’t tow the concrete mixer behind the Council limo that night as he had left a Council meeting to send the runners (45 of us) on their way.

Norwest quickly grew to some 70 odd runners/walkers and feeding this mob became a challenge.  Over the years as priorities have changed and some have moved away or retired numbers are stable at around 10-15 with a mix of some of the inaugural members to new boots with a wide age range.

Runs are on a Tuesday night at 6.30pm, usually from someone’s home and in summer also from beaches and reserves.  The runs vary both in length and terrain. Visitors are welcome and if a lift is needed or a bed required this can always be arranged.

At May 2019 Norwest has now clocked up 1669 runs, with Hard to Port on 1402, Part Timer on 1187, Madd-on-er 950, Sharkbait 900 and Joe 90 on 612.  

Runs cost $15.00 which includes the piss stop, a gourmet feed and drinks.

Long time core members Metal and Petal have moved to the Hawkes Bay so the hash is soldiering on without them.

The hash sadly lost one of NZ’s most popular hashers Max the Shitter (AKA Mr Sharkbait) in 2017.  

Outgoing GM was Hissy Fit. New GM as of 21 May 2019 is Weeek. Yes with 3 e’s.

Woeful

HISTORY:

West of Everywhere Full Moon Runners Hash House Harriers

Woeful run once a month (twice in Blue Moon months!).

Run dates and times are loosely hinged around the Full Moon, but we almost always have our monthly run on a weekend, usually on a Sunday at 2pm in Summer. Abit earlier in Winter.   Mostly bush runs.   And longer than the average hash run.  8-10 km.

A run MUST last an hour or the hare has to go again the following month.

The WOEFULL is predominately a running hash, but there are walkers. The hares are pretty good about taking this into account but they will still walk for an hour or more.

We try not to run on concrete or asphalt and stick to the trails. It is a general rule of thumb to bring extra socks, shirt, shoes as there are a lot of streams and shoreline. It has been known for hounds to change BOTH underwear and shorts after a WOEFULL.

Typical attendance is from eight to 15 and we are always welcoming new folks. We don’t do food (for a $10 run, what do you expect?) but we have beer, wine, softies, and snacks. We may have a bring-your-own BBQ at times.

Run numbers centre round the number 13, with that number being the yearly run quota.   Hashers reaching the magic number 13 buy their own black tee-shirt, and the club has it embroidered after each additional 13 runs.   The hash currently just over the 70 mark with thoughts of 100 celebration being voiced. Worm has done nearly all of the runs with suggestions of not having got a life.

The WOEFULL has recently added a FaceBook page for those that are not FB averse. It is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/WOEFULLH3/ and open to the public. Schedules are posted there.

  • Current committee headed by GM -  50 Shades of Gay with RA - DickDick.  

  • Run funding – $10 for adults, $2 for kids.  Includes beer (low alcohol always available), softies, chips and dips.  

  • Food -  BYO meat BBQ, sometimes a cheap Restaurant or Cafe On-After

  • Main Travellers to away runs – Worm and  Birdtable.

  • Birdtable a winner of numerous female downdown titles including an Interhash downdown.

  • Woeful a past winner of NZ boat race team.

Mount Hash including Chopper.jpg

Mount Maunganui

HISTORY:

Mount Maunganui Hash House Harriers was founded on Queens Birthday weekend, 1989 by Gaylene McFarlane known as Gladdy and a hardy few Heaps, Charcol and Trojan to name some. They all still run hash when work commitment permit.

Mount Maunganui Hash is world renowned for its antics at the 1994 Rotorua Interhash post lube when the hares 69er and co ran the pack to the top of the local icon hill known as Mauao an extinct volcano to find that there was no piss at the stop. But then out of nowhere a helicopter with a container attached to the underside landed a load of the amber liquid and there was much rejoicing.

In 2003 Mount HHH hosted the New Zealand Nash Hash” Playtime in paradise” with a run over the Mount( Mauao) and a barge trip to Matakana Island.2MH3 has been active for 25 years and records show 1380 runs as of October 2014. It has its own web site http://www.mounthash.mysite.com which gives the hashers an insight to our chapter and is the main source of communication along with the weekly Hash Trash. 

Runs

Mount Hash is a friendly mixed hash that runs every Monday without fail at 6.00pm and long weekends 5.00pm. Runs are from homes, reserves, parks, farms and pubs. The pack is usually a 50 /50 split of runners and walkers and numbers from 25 to 40. The circle is run by two Fine masters with songs from the RA.

Sign on is $5.00 per person and buy your own at hash prices. The hares supply the food from money received. We have 4 hashers over 1000, being  Humpy 1135, Perky 1126, 69er 1110 Macwatt 1005. Many others are in the 500 to 700 range which demonstrates a strong committed chapter.

Each year we have a combined Christmas run with Rotorua and Sun City each taking a turn to organise the event. A new addition to our away runs is the Raglan weekend usually at the end of the summer season. We hold weekend Hash events for significant occasions.     Many of the Mount Hashers are regular travellers to Hash events around N.Z  with main world travellers being Heaps and Bluevain. Bluevain is a serial organiser - see Weka and Red Dress runs NH19. Also lead on New Zealands Fiji bid to host Interhash. Will be at it again in Tobago.

Who Runs the Chapter:

Each year one of the main events is the AGPU which is held in August.  (2019 -17th Aug)It is usually a themed event and is the announcing of the new miss management committee along with our awards, Runniest Hasher, Hussy, Dick of the year etc. including the Joseph (walking stick) for the hasher who has progress from running to walking with dignity The Mis management committee consist of the Grand Master GM Joint Master JM, Hon Sec (On Sex) bean counter, Hash Piss. Hash Trash Religious Adviser (RA) Hash Horn, Fine Master, Run Master and Book, Hash Haberdashery and Web Adviser and these poor souls try to control the chapter holding several meetings throughout the year.  Current GM – Flossy,  JM - DVD, Hash Kash - CC, RA - Macwatt, Piss - Blowout, Fines masters Humpy and Spank Me, On Sec Bustits,  Flash - Suk Inn, Web - Copteaser, Book and Vessel - Pokin Out, Horn 69er.

Nash+Hash+19.jpg

Whakatane

HISTORY:

A small but very relaxed hash.  Hashers Noodles, Lucifer, Longtime, Fireman Jim, Dupch and Daisy head a pack that varies from 10 to 20 in the summer to abit less in the winter.  No particular committee cycle. GM Noodles replaced Lucifer who reigned for 3 years. Signature weekend is the annual “Piddle down the river”, a raft race with keg on board – see below.   Noodles, a few years back, set a NZ hashing record with 11.5 years of continuous monday hashing The hash operates with the usual hash humor - years back one hasher repeatedly asked to become GM – the hash waited until she went overseas on holiday, then voted her in as GM.  Then voted her out again just before she returned.

The Edgecombe floods of April 2017 have hit the hash hard with Noodles, Keyless, Daisy and Lucifer all residents of the flood ravaged town.  

  • Hash night is Monday at 6pm.  

  • Current GM is Noodles, with the circle usually run by Noodles and or Fireman Jim.  Hash Kash is Longtime

  • Funding – Members pay a $6 sign on fee. This covers food. Buy your own drinks from the hash chilly bin.

  • Food is provided by the hare.  

  • Runs from farms, beaches and houses with the occasional pub.  

  • Communication is mostly by email and phone.  

  • Noodles has done aprox 1682 of the Hashes 1762 runs.  Fireman Jim chalked up 1000 in 2017.

  • Regular annual run has been the Piddle down the river.  Some 3-4 rafts paddle down a local river over 2 days with camping at night.  Keg is part of on board equipment. Not held last couple of years due to river levels.   Search on for another river. Usually well supported by Mount hash.

  • Travellers to away runs – Daisy and Dupch.   Daisy a stalwart worker on Nomads. And who would ever forget his shovel work for the 2015 Nash Hash as he cooked and turned a trough of chicken over the fire.

  • Daisy has now moved to Rarotonga on a 2 year waterworks contract. The Hash planning a trip to visit him in September 2019

Rotorua 2019.jpg

Rotorua

HISTORY:

Established 20th February 1978 by Brian Lowry who would hang upside down and set fire to his luxuriant body hair. This was not a weekly occurrence. Lowry was assisted by co G.M. Tony Evans who honored us by attending our recent 2000th run.

Numbers built quickly as a town full of young, single, overpaid civil servants drinking cheap beer and wearing skimpy seventies running outfits discovered superb trails on their back door in Whakarewarewa forest.

These days the pack is diverse. Young fit jock strappers take off and never call ,returning lathered and filthy. The knitting circle wanders off gossiping, sometimes on trail, mostly not, and only returning once they've figured out where they are. And the halt and the lame sigh, grab a beer and pretend to look after sundry kids and dogs.  

Our Ancestors are Kota Kinabalu H3,  Descendants are Opotiki H3, 1st run 31st of October 1982 Grant Lowe GM Tokoroa H3, !st run 30th November 1982 Graeme “Walrus” Sutherland           Sun City H3 1st run 22 July 1984 Grant “Potblack” Hughes

Other office holders (Hash cash, bucket etc.) are by default i.e. if a Hasher disagrees with the way a job is being done and feels moved to point this out, they had better be prepared to do that job from then on. Current officeholders are Cockroach and Hard On - JM’s, General - Horn, Father - Cash and Poker huntis - Bucket.

How it works.

Summer runs at 6.00pm in forest, bush or farm, with town runs discouraged unless from the Corner Pub which is 150m from the forest. Winter runs at 5.30, usually pubs, unless we're hanging out for lasagne. Then we go to Udder's garage. Hares do food if they feel like it.

There is no sign on or subs. Pay as you go. Beer $3; and wines $5. Softies' prices are known only to those that drink them.

Current pack size is around 25 to 30, with an overall membership of about 50

Famous for

Interhash 1994. Thousands of Hashers from hundreds of countries who to this day say it was the best ever. We were assisted by N.Z. Hashes from all over who made the runs their own.

ALSO -  The only 2 NZ hashers who have passed the 2000 “run” milestone.  At June 2019, General is on 2102 and Father (Chairman of Interhash 94) is on 2062.  Both of them started hashing in 1978.  The Hash itself is up to 2342.

Tokoroa

HISTORY:

Tokoroa Hash House Harriers started in 1983.  Originally, made up of new young graduate engineers and staff of NZ Forest Products, now named Carter Holt Harvey Pulp & Paper, plus some locals.  We always ran on a Sunday evening when any travellers were back in town.  Other local clubs - Hamilton and Rotorua - ran on Monday nights so we often joined them as well.  

Shortly after our 100th run the club went into recess, but was restarted in 2009 by Marcus “Lone Ranger” Maydon, an pommie immigrant with plenty of enthusiasm and an amicable, passionate drive.  He found the past Hash Master or GOM, Graeme “Musthashless” Sutherland, and family, as well as a dozen new members, to get the club off running again.  The first "trial" or "demo" run was on Oct 28th to which 4 people turned up. It hasn't missed a beat since, albeit as a daylight savings hash.

  • Runs every Wednesday night during daylight savings at 6pm.

  • Runs Sunday 4pm during winter -  non daylight savings.

  • Runs leaving from pub carpark. 6-7 pubs are rotated as venues.  

  • Hare is normally Lone Ranger, with Musthashless taking the occasional turn when work commitments permit.  

  • Very much a family hash.  Pack size from 6 to 15.

  • Communication mainly via facebook.  The website provides some history of the hash but has not been updated for some time.  Pussy Galore is the on sec.

  • Limited travelers although increasing.  Lone Ranger and Sticky Fingers went to InterHash in Fiji and there was a heady FOUR attendees at Nash Hash 19.

  • Visitors - Likka from Pania has attended every significant Tokoroa run !!

  • The hash runs the annual Waikato Cheese Rolling event and last year raised $5,000 which is being donated for local community projects  - Conservation Forest and Bird, St Johns etc.

  • The Cheese rolling event, 1st Saturday in March  includes Caber tossing, egg throwing and other novelty competitions,  as well as the cheese rolling.

  • The Hash’s 400th run is on 28th April 2018.  Drinks at Tokoroa Club the night before.  

Farewell to Disco Duck was on 21ST April   2018

Taupo

HISTORY:

Taupo hash is currently not up and running as a regular hash, with only one hasher resident in town –Red Riding Hood

Nelson hasher Phlonker was in town for awhile but hasn’t been sighted by RRH in recent months.  

With the recruitment of Mount Maunganui hashers Bluevein and Heaps,  Taupo HHH staged a very successful Nash Hash 2015.

Red has for a number of years hosting an annual limited (by the size of her house!!)  numbers hash weekend in Taupo. And she is a keen traveller to both NZ and International hash events including being a member of the triumphant kiwi boat race team at the Tasmania Aussie Nash Hash.

Energy Hash April 19.jpg

Energy – New Plymouth

HISTORY:

A drunken conversation one Monday Hash night led to three car loads of Hashers fronting up from Auckland and Hamilton in New Plymouth (at that time the only major city in New Zealand without a H3 Club) one Friday night late in January 1988.

Following an advertisement in the local paper Rewdundee, Gypsey and Mongo were at the Tasman Hotel to greet potential Hashers.  During the course of the evening eight locals came along to see what it was about.

Along with the following travelling hashers: Hacker, Gonzo, Aydz, Lindyloo and Pox from Auckland and Kanga, Raparound, Radar, Gondola and Fishbait (who was renamed Mulletguts by Hacker) from Hamilton.

Saturday morning saw Hacker and Mongo head off to set the run while the other hashers went to the Tasman Hotel for pre-run drinks, then a pack of 30+ gathered at the Tukapa Rugby Club at 1:00pm for the run.

The Sunday Recovery Run was set at Back Beach by Mongo and Steve (later to named Stewed the first GM of Energy Hash) and the Club is still going strong. 

Runs:

Energy Hash is a mixed Hash with a Runners and Walkers pack that runs every Monday at 6:30pm (earlier on Public Holidays at 5:00pm). 
$3 sign on per person.  Bring your Own Booze / Water / Fizzy. With the Host being reimbursed$20 towards the kai.  This has been in place since mid November 2018 and seems to be working really well.  It’s taken the pressure off Hash Booze and means that the hashers can drink what they want. Any visiting Hashers have told of the change when they’ve been in touch and have happily rocked up with a few beers, cider or wine.

A Receding Hareline is sent out weekly listing the upcoming Energy Hash Runs, New Zealand and Overseas Hash Events and other special Hash Runs. 
We can also be contacted via Facebook, Messenger, Email, Text or Phone (and by Mail...) if any visiting Hashers or wannabe Hashers are in town and want to come along for a Monday Run or catch up during the week.
Our evenings usually finish about 9.30pm (run is at 6.30pm) so it is pretty quiet night. However we have a lot of laughs as we enjoy each others company and really enjoy welcoming visiting Hashers and new boots.

We used to hold our weekend event “The Energiser” once every two years which was aimed at Hashers from around the country, however licensing requirements have made this too difficult in todays climate.

We also have a dedicated group of local Hashers who enjoy travelling to Hash events around New Zealand and or to other Hash Club events around the world.
We have 2 1000 runs plus hashers -  Wantie on 1187 and Rigid on 1174 as at March 2019.  Ten has the 4 figures in sight with 876. The hash as a group is at 1708 at March 2019.   
We have a few favourite catch phrases that we like to use as a good introduction to stimulate interest about Hash and what it’s about.  They’ve proven to be a good icebreaker and a great talking point with new boots as we have them available on an assortment of patches:  “We’re here for the Beer”  “If normal people scare you join Hash House Harriers”  “We’re a Drinking Club with a running / walking problem”

Pania Plodders.jpg

Pania Plodders - Napier

Established:

July 20 1984. (over Auckland Mens HHH 666 weekend).

Founded by:

Robbie "LIKKA" McNaught.

Co-Founders:  

Max "PORTNOY" Patmoy, Doug "SIXTY NINE" Wright, Ian "THIRTY TWO BIT" Wright, Mary "ROLLS" McMinn, Tony "SCHNAPPS" Snell, Martin “FOSSIL” Carmichael, Cathy “NO DEPOSIT” Mulvaney.

History

All of the above were members of the NAPIER HHH - founded March 9th 1981. (There was also a HASTINGS HHH between early 1982 and late 1983, but their active members joined Napier HHH and their lazy ones left.  The National Boat Race Trophy was originally raced between these two clubs. When Napier HHH hosted NZ Nash Hash in 1984 Hastings HHH was defunct, so we donated the trophy for all NZ HHH's to vie for.)

Today's Pania Plodders HHH is a far cry from the hedonistic, rambunctious, embarrassingly athletic hashers of yesteryear.  Younger folk (in hash years) like STEELO, ARSE-N-ALL and IN HER EARS keep our pace up, while LIKKA, SIXTY NINE and POCKETS turn their pacemakers up!  Guest appearances by oldies like PIG, ALO SAILOR and MASTER BAKER are always welcomed, as are new boots and visiting hashers.  Overseas hashers run free (excluding feature runs) as do new boots on their first run. Runs are advertised in the "COURIER" newspaper. Packs used to be 30 strong.  Today we're in single figures more often than not. That said we always set a trail! Every 6-8 weeks the trail is in Hastings to cater for our members there. The rest of our trails are within 15km of Napier.  Drink stops are mandatory for all hares. Terrain and distance vary with most trails having run/walk splits.

We meet:  

SUNDAY @ 2:00pm though we seldom leave on time.  We are normally out for 90 minutes.

In recent times the Hash has been trialing running on a Monday night.

Hash Bucket depends on whether the hares arrange food or not.  $8:00 yes, $4:00 no. Hash Beer/Cider $3:00.

We have 3 feature events every year (not counting feature weekend/milestone runs) which are:

  1. Our AGPU - Closest Saturday to our founding date - July 20th. Themed walkabout with 'stupor' set by JM's. Normally a meal and a large bar tab, both on trail and afterwards. Awards and Hash Erections.

  2. Hashmen's Home Brew walkabout. February 6th +/-. Local lads show off their brewing skills (or lack thereof) over several hours. Hares donate their wares, Hounds ‘judge’ for free. Hangovers free too.

  3. Harriet's Christmas Cocktails. Usually around December 15th. Classier than above, but still a stupor!

Our mis-management committee usually comprises the same faces with different hats on.  Currently they are:

Joint Masters: SIXTY NINE & LIKKA                                 
Trail Master: POCKETS                
Hash Cash: ARSE-N-ALL               
Hash Beer: SHUNTER & TWO JUGS              
Choir Boy: WRING PEACE
Club run tally: 1870
Next milestone run:   Either 1900 or 1919. (tba)               
Most member runs:   LIKKA (1551),  POCKETS (1010),  SIXTY NINE (828).....or thereabouts.

**  Nearly 40 years later some of our originals are still hashing!!!

Sadly, others, have gone to that big ON ON in the sky. "LITTLE FLICK" (Andre), "CHIPMONK" (Phil), "SHAG" (Tony) and others from Napier HHH; as well as a similar number from Hastings HHH.

In recent years we too have lost ‘family’ of our own.  Amongst them: "MCP" (Dave) and "JB" (Syd) who died within a fortnight of each other in April 2013.  "SUGAR DADDY" (David) left us 18 months ago, followed shortly afterwards by "ROLLS" (Mary). We will always remember them….      

**  FINALLY... We are bidding for NZ Nash Hash 2021.  Should we be successful it will be in mid February 2021.

Palmerston North.jpg

Palmerston North

The Palmy North hash are these days a small mixed hash running mainly from hashers homes.  A recent addition of international students from Massey. Runs are on Monday at 6.30pm. The hash is nearly up to 1900 runs, so in sight of 2000.  

  • Current committee headed by Hangman and Sandman.  

  • Communication is mostly by phone and email, with Cryptic now running a Facebook page.   

  • Runs are mostly home runs  

  • The most prolific runners are Hangman, Sandman and Urchin who are all over 1000 runs.  Mellors not far behind. Other longtime membes - Wah. Dallas pops in occasionally.

  • The hash has an annual weekend away at Mangaweka.  Usually round March. Hangman and Urchin had attended every one until this year when their golfing commitments precluded them.

Masterton

History

The Mash3 founded by ex Wellington hasher Budgie. Hash is still going strong and passed 1550 runs early 2018.  

Little Flic who didn't turn up to run number 1 cos he couldn't be bothered has only missed only 20 odd runs since.  Possibly the highest % in NZ ?? Recently (April 2018) he had done 1529 of the groups 1557 runs.

The rather uncharitable Phantom has suggested that “attendances” might be a more accurate description for some of these runs.  But the words kettle and pot spring to mind there.

Others in the top 6 for runs in the hash at April 2018 are Dogshit 1404, Sewerage 1359, Mr X 1309, Phantom 1155 and Spike 1139.

Average pack size is around the dozen mark.  The hash run in varied locations, mostly round Masterton with a strong social link being the Services Club and the Horseshoe bar.   

Mash3 has had combined runs with Wellington and Palmy North in the past.   The more recent being a Wellington busload meeting Mash3 in Featherston and Mash3 attending a Geri's weekend at Riversdale.  

  • Current committee headed by GM Grasshopper

  • The AGPU and change of committee is on a 50 run cycle.  

  • Communication is mostly by phone and contact at the Services Club/Horseshoe bar

  • Run funding –  Quart bottles of beer are on sale at $4 each after home and bush runs. Buy your own drinks at pub runs.  

  • Food for home runs supplied by the hare with a $20 subsidy from the hash.  

  • Regular particpation in the Round the Vines fun run/walk at Martinborough.  Were spotted in a recent year proudly claiming the unofficial Dead Last and Most drunk group prizes.

  • Travellers to away runs – not these days.

Wellington HHH (Mens).jpg

Monday group

Wellington

History

The first hash group formed in Wellington and the second oldest hash in NZ.  Staunchly mens only, although female visitors are very welcome and many a run has a female or three for various reasons.  Normal pack of around 30-40 with about half being runners and the remaining 1/4 walkers. Age range 20's to 70s with the majority, like most NZ hashes of a “mature” age.  Have recently become a singing hash of sorts, thanks to Hash Brown, his trusty guitar and his adapting of popular songs to take the piss out of hash members.

  • Main committee consists of Ayotollah (GM), Hash Monk and RA.  These 3 “attempt to” run the circle and are appointed annually.  2019-20 Ayotollah is Fatboy with the RA Crazy Horse and Hash monk - Possum.  

  • Subsidiary office holders are Hash Cash (DT), Trailmaster (Pisspot Kev), Historians (Biggles and Porkbox), Webmaster (Arold) and Horn (ABC).  

  • Communication is mostly by email.  Everyone has a list. Some know how to use it.  The hash also has a Facebook page which is starting to gain traction thanks mainly to photograhers Possum and High Heels.

  • Major annual runs are Xmas and AGPU (April or thereabouts).  And more recently the Xmas Craft Beer Bar run.

  • Funding – most members pay a $50 monthly AP which covers all weekly drinks, plus all costs for the Xmas run and AGPU including taxi home.  Pub runs buy your own meal. Summer and winter barbeque runs ( we have a barbeque trailer “Tammy”) you bring your own meat and/or other food to cook on Tammy.  

  • Daylight savings runs (October to March) are mostly bush runs from parks near the bush, or from home garages.  With Tammy in attendance or other barbeque.

  • Non daylight savings runs (April to September) are a mixture of home garage runs and pub or club runs.   

  • Circles are usually lively affairs.  The main office holders start proceedings.    Then follows fines from the floor, with much banter and bedlam. Finally the awarding of prick of the week.  Prick writes the trash for the next week.

  • Highest number of runs shared by Mildew and Biggles both 1500 plus.  About a dozen 1000 plus. At the other end of the scale new regulars under 200 –FatBoy and Possum.   Sproggy has done the most nude runs.

  • Non hash annual away trips for golf and occasionally Nomad.  

  • Not many regular travellers to NZ away weekends although a surge recently. He’ll Keep, ABC and Tripod all ventured to Winter Camp.  Other travellers Sproggy and DT. Few more to Interhashes and Nash Hashs.  Nearly double figures at NH19

  • Visitors fees – officially $10 but more often than not waived.

Capital.jpg

Monday group

Capital

History

Capital Hash was founded in 1981 and the inaugural run was on 2 February from the Thorndon Tavern with 9 hashers present.  After a period in recess from November 1981 until its re-erection by the Ayotollah, Mad Max, and 15 others on 5 September 1983 the Hash has survived many a change to still be going strong at the present time.

The Hash, as suggested by its name predominately runs around the central Wellington area with occasional forays out into the Hutt Valley, Newlands, Johnsonville and other outer suburbs.  The hash has even been to Masterton and Palmerston North.  

Capital runs on Mondays at 6:30 pm from pubs, cafes or hasher’s homes as long as alcohol is available. Pack numbers range from 10-20. A growing hash over the last 4 or 5 years.  

Weekly fee is $2 for charges (usually beer, soft drink or water) after the run and the hare provides the PS (again usually beer, soft drink or water).

Food and beers at the On On is BYO from pubs or if from a home the cost is at the discretion of the hare.

Run lengths vary from 2 km to 8 km. Occasionally a walkers short cut will be set.

Regular weekly awards;
Short Cutting Bstard (hat), Front Running Bstard (hat), Wank3r (Pants)

100 runs is recognised with the award of a wooden mug.  Other runs can be recognised by awarding of the prick.

Everyone usually has pissed off by 9.30, preferably by public transport or Shank's Pony.

Geestring has done the most runs in the hash with 1341 at April 2018.     Next is Nipplepink on 1019 and Handle on 970. Hash total up to 1897.

Wgtn Ladies.jpg

Wednesday group

Wellington Ladies

History

Founded in November 1978 by Chips and a few other unfortunates (who were excluded from the ranks of the chauvinistic WH3 by virtue of sex!) as a female alternative to the all male Wellington group.  WLH3 has always been a mixed hash. Normal pack of around 15-25 with an equal mix of runners and walkers. Definitely the singing hash of Wellington, mainly thanks to the arrival of Fire N Da Ho from Europe 5 years ago.  But now with able backups Tinkles and BS. There are a bunch of young guns in their early 20’s - Dribble dropper, H2, Bump and Headcase.

  • Current committee consists of the GM Tinkles; RA’s  IQ 20, DT, Fire and Headcase; Choirmistress Fire and BS; Hash Kash Small Change/Real Deal; Grogmaster DT and Hasherdabery Chips.    AGPU is in the latter part of the year.

Thirsty Thursday Taniwha.jpg

Thursday group

Thirsty Thursday Taniwha

History

T3H3 was formed on the 26th May 2016 by Recycled Virgin, Pannikin Cider, Nokia, Corpus-L and Handle who decided that heading out for a run as well as having drinks was a good idea.

The Taniwha run on Thursdays at 7:00pm from any venue close to public transport.    

Weekly fee is $2 for charges (beer, soft drink or water) after the run.  There may or may not be a PS depending on the hare. Other drinks are BYO.
Average run length is 5km.
Hash trash is written on the night with most present contributing a sentence or two.

A weekend in the Wairarapa was held in March 2018 to celebrate run number 99.

The number 3 is the revered number.  Fines for run number which feature 3.   
Handle is the most prolific TTT having only missed 3 of the current number of 104.

SAM hash.png

Saturday group

SAM

This hash has justly been accused of being the "tea and toast" brigade. Run/Walk every Saturday morning at 8am. Followed by breakfast. Alcohol not banned but rarely seen. It is a tad early to start drinking !!

  • Trails are not laid (there has been the odd rare exception) - we figure it out as we go.  We tend to split into FRB's and SCB's - the latter are directed to probable short-cuts.

  • All who participate are hashers Runs are generally an hour at least.  Can be a lot more.  

  • The SAM also serves the dubious purpose of exploratory missions into some of the more impassable areas of Wellington to hunt out hashable territory.  We find a lot of dead-ends. 

  • There are usually serious hills - this is Wellington.

  • Numbers - anything from 6 -> 15.

  • Venues are a mix of hashers homes where the hare puts on breakfast,  and boot parties where it is BYO breakfast, comfy chairs etc.

Nelson

History

One of the major contributors to the NZ hashing scene. Host to 2 Nash Hashes, including 2013 when nearly 300 attended.  A regular pack of 15-25 running mainly from homes with the odd pub and other venue.  Hash started by Cooch.

Christchurch HHH.jpg

Christchurch

History

We were founded on 12th November 1979 by Rub Me Knob, General Teeth, Human Dynamo and Great Uncle Bulgaria.  Two of these notable men have been past NZGM’s (General Teeth and Human Dynamo). We were the first Hash club to be formed in the South Island and are the longest running Hash Club in the South Island.

We are a mixed hash with an average size pack of 20-25 (25-30 over the summer months) and run every Monday at 6.30pm from different locations around the city.  During the winter we often stick to the streets or within the city limits (although sometimes a challenge in the Eastern suburbs because of earthquake damage still about).  In the summer months we venture further afield to the hills and countryside. Runs cater for walkers, joggers and runners with a good sense of humour! Dogs are welcome unless advised prior.

Our annual AGM’s are a theme night held on a Saturday night (so you have Sunday to recover).  Many a fun night has been had with themes such as M*A*S*H, Cinco de Mayo, Rock Stars, 4th July, Beach Party, Cum As Your Hash Name etc.

Also every year on our Show Day (Canty anniversary day) is Hussies Hat Day.  A day of fun and laughter for the Hussies where we slap on a dress and don a fancy dat.

On the odd occasion we will have combined runs with the Tuesday hash (Garden City) which gets both clubs together. These are often held on a Sunday.  Once every few years MOLE does his Mt Somers spectacular runs which is just out of this world being set in the hills and mountains of where parts of Lord of The Rings was filmed.

Every Christmas each club has turns in hosting the Combined Hash Xmas Doo which is a formal affair and hounds and hussies get in their best and a night to remember.

We also do Winter Camp bi-annually with Garden City.  These are often a theme on the Saturday night.

We have a Annual Duck Run with its own trophy where ducks of all descriptions (not live or motored) are raced in a river of sorts and a load of fun is had for the day.

We have our own website and Facebook page Christchurch Hash House Harriers.  Both are maintained by members of the committee.  Many of our visitors find us via our Website hence the importance of keeping these up to date.

Communication to all club members is via email, Facebook and info on our Website.  Email is done via our Dropbox where we have a set email from the Christchurch Hash House Harriers email and done as a group mail out.  A contact list is set up in our Dropbox and can be altered as needed by committee members.

GM is STD; RA – 007; JM – FFFFF(F5); Hash Kash, Website, Hareraiser - DING-A-LING; Hash Habberdasery – RLD; Em-Def/Beep Beep Drays. Scribes - Navi and Nice Butt.

Committee meets every couple of months for updates on upcoming events. We have a designated Scribe for the Trash and when she is unable to be on the run, someone from the Committee fulfils that duty. Fines Masters are chosen on the night. Weekly awards are the Prick of The Week, The Stick – for anyone needing protection of some sorts (previously known as the Hussies Molestering Stick for the hussies but due to small numbers of hussies at the time it was then presented to both hounds and hussies) and the Wobbly Legs.

Run fee is $5 including food per night. $2 fee if just doing the run. Buy your own drinks from the chilly bins provided. Beers $2.50, RTD's $3.50, wine and soft drinks (prices vary).  

Circles are started off by the GM who welcomes any new members, visitors.  The RA then takes over and does fines and any initiations of naming of newbies.  The floor is open to any dobs etc.

Easter 2015 was the 2000th run.  Approximately the 4th NZ club to reach this milestone.   
Our longest serving runners are RED LIGHT DISTRICT who hit 1000 in April 2018, with   BEEP BEEP bringing up the same milestone in March 2019.

Garden City Chch.jpg

Garden city - Christchurch

History

GCH3 came about because Christchurch Hash were running about 70 at the time and that was too many for Hashers to host at their homes.

So on Sunday ist July 1984 a run was set by two NZGM’s. The human Dynamo and General Teeth. This after a steering committee of Hamburger, Rocket Man, Vege, Flash, Dagy, the Human Dynamo and BIIK had set things up.

Runs thereafter have been on a Tuesday with Dagy and Flash as the first JM’s (equality, no GM) and Vege as the Hash Cash and Mt Manwell as On Sex. The idea was that the club should be run equally by Hashmen and Hussies; also that food, beer, wine and softies should be available at every run.

Currently, Flash is in Aussie, Mt Manwell in Ipswich England and ex NZGM  JRGEE stole Vege away and currently hides her in Nelson. Dagy still in Christchurch held by Stickee fingers!

Runs!

As with  our mother Hash CH2H3, our runs are in and around Christchurch normally at 1830, with the idea that summer runs should be country; leaving the streets for winter. The rip off at $6.00 covers food after the run and fines. This also gives us funds to buy 100th run pannikins etc. Buy your own beer, wine and softies from chilli bins provided. These days there is more and more low alc being supplied.

Christchurch H3 and Garden city take turns organizing Winter camp and the combined Xmas formal every year. Other weekend runs and Sunday runs take place at times. It would be fair to say Christchurch has a limited number of areas for country runs and these have been more than well used. After the earthquakes there are lots of new housing and business estates being built which gives new territory for the town runs, a good outcome from having our homes stuffed !!

CURRENT COMMItTEE  - as of September 2019

RA: SSS

JM’s: Vasie and Firkin

Haberdasher: KTT      

Fines Master and Dray: Klingon       

Hair Razor: Vase

Kash -   Dagy

We do keep a register which all sign in and out of. In theory we should be able to find how many runs anyone has ever done. In practice some of the books from the 90’s have been lost.

These days, more walkers than runners.

The club, as at April  2019, is around 1960 runs.   Dagy has done over 1500 of them. His big 1500th in 2018.

Southern Flyers.jpg

Southern Flyers – Invercargill

History

Invercargill Hash House Harriers (ie Southern Flyers) was founded in 1982 by “Swoft” ( Sid Swift), who is possibly still Hashing elsewhere in NZ under another alias.

Weekly runs are traditionally from the Northern Tavern, except for “one off” runs from Hashers’ homes or on special occasions.  Recently moved main base venue to Club Southland, but now back to Northern Tavern.

The pack has varied over the years, from 20 plus down to a core of only four for a short period.

As well as supporting other Southland/Otago Hash clubs (eg Te Anau, Dunedin and Alexandra) in the earlier days, at least three runs have been held with the Hashers from the Frigate HMS Southland when it was in port at Bluff.

Tradition has included mid winter “walkabouts” and the Xmas “naughty nighty” runs, with carols and home brewed cider.

Run milestones were the 500th in November 1992, 1000th on 20 September 2003 and 1500th on 16 March 2014.  
1688 runs at 19 February 2018.  

Now:

Runs are held every Monday (except public holidays) at 6.00pm from the Northern Tavern, corner of St Andrew and Sydney Streets Invercargill, with occasional runs from Hashers’ homes.

There are only a few runners now, with most walking and total numbers are between 10-15 each week.

There is no sign in cost or subscription, with “buy your own” drinks at the circle.

Southern Flyers lays claim (until proven otherwise) to be the most southern all year round Hash in the world.

RIP  - The Hashes that were

Marlborough

Probably NZ’s most well known hash, in their day.  Or in their century, which was the last one.

A small but extremely well travelled hash who punched well above their weight.   A mini version of Hammersley. Marlborough take it up the ……………………….. doo dah doo dah  

Well travelled because they had the country’s air force at their disposal – many a NZ hash awoke to find that Marlborough hash had flown in under cover of darkness and drunk all their beer.   

Characters such as Suipe who won 2 interhash downdowns and was arguably the fastest downdown exponent of all Hash time, rivalled only by Hooray Henry from the UK.  Sadly the 2 never met in a one on one, being from slightly different era’s.

Other characters such at NZGM Troll-up who emigrated to Auckland but soon left cos of all the fucking rain.   

Also Soak who has now become an Australian.    Increasing the average IQ of both countries as they say.  

2 of the later die-hards Wendy and Toyboy continue manfully to fly the Marlborough flag wherever they may live.   And they have even recruited a 3rd member to the hash, an eloquent Yank songstress Bolder Holder, who lived in Wellington but is now in Tauranga - and who successfully passed the 21st century Marlborough HHH entrance exam of

  1. Do you run with a current hash -  Answer No

  2. Can you spell Marlborough  - Yes Marlburrow - Fuck it that’s near enough.  You’re in.

Toyboy and Wendy can now be found at their campground in Takaka.  Details below. They run whenever visitors are in town.
