2231 – 🇨🇦 The Amazing Hash 🇨🇦

Hares: Twisted Sister and Hardly
Where: Prairie Dog Brewing, Calgary, AB
RA: Skewbic Hair?
Attendance: 26

Hardly and Twisty are simply the best at organizing special events. It’s days like these that it’s clear they have that much more hashing experience than the rest of us.

A lot of ground was covered, a lot if fun was had and – obviously – a lot of beer was guzzled.

Thank you Hardly and Twisty for being the ❤️ and 🧠 of the Calgary Hash House Harriers.

2222 – ✌️Two Oh Tutu Oh Two Tutu ✌️- Special Run

Hares: Daisy Deux-ke (what a Cutie Patwotie)
Where: Sandy Beach Park – West Access, Calgary, AB T2T 2V2
On-In: Wild Rose Brewing, Calgary, AB
Attendance: 22 (no it wasn’t, but let’s just say it was)

Looks like someone cooked the books for this run. Run #2222, on 22/2/22?? What a koinkidenk! The hares planned a run of 2.2+km with a start time of 7:22pm.

What wasn’t pre-planned however, is that the temperature at that time proved 2 be a serendipitous -22°C.

People wore their best tutus for the occasion.

On on!

2207 – Anal Ski Trip Post-Skiing Hash

Hares: Lay’em in Snow
Where: Castle Mountain Resort, ‘berta
On In: T-Bar
Attendance: 16
RA: Abandoned Pussy, probably

This anal ski trip is an opportunity for the select few who found the golden shower ticket to gather at Castle Mountain, ski during the day and hit the T-Bar.

What happens in Castle stays in Castle, except for the few tales, videos and photos that were leaked on social media. Here is what (we gather and guess) happened:

  • people skied and bitched about the snow
  • Hot Cheeks brought the ShotSki out
  • hashers went into the hot tub
  • Skewbic Hair stole other hashers’ beers
  • Lay’em In Snow offered to take people to his secret little babbling brook and be one with nature
  • hashers stumbled around the parking lot and called it a numbered hash run.
  • PMS’s outstanding playlists were sorely missed.

On On!

2197 – Grey Cup Day – Run and Drink?

Hares : Daisy Duke, Skewbic Hair and Lay’em In Snow
Where: Bitter Sisters Brewing Company, Calgary, AB
Attendance : 18

Out of the 20 possible combinations for this year’s Grey Cup, we ended with a game between the Hamilton… Tiger-Cats ? (WTF?) and the Winnipeg… Blue Bombers (not a military reference apparently, in case you wondered).

Let’s go with the “blotched tabby cat” definition.

So because no one really cared about the outcomes of this game, we had a hard time finding a hare for it.

Luckily, our trio of hares (Daisy, Scoobie and Lay’em In Snow) stepped up to the plate (that’s football lingo, right?). They delivered a trail that no one complained about. In fact no one said anything about it. It might as well not have happened. Just like that football match.

So the game happened, the trail happened and then there was much rejoicing in the form of appies & beers at Bitter Sisters. Now, *that*’s worth mentioning.

On Out!

2183 – The CH3’s Yearly Hiking Weekend

Hares : King Shit
Where: Arthur O. Wheeler Hut, BC
Attendance : 7 (as per BC health measures)

With views this breathtaking, no wonder this event warranted its own run number! (But really, it was only King Shit’s scheme to ensure he secures his lead in “most runs run at the Calgary Hash House Harriers”.)

5 Calgary Hashers and 2 Ottawa Hashers joined in this year’s CH3 hiking event at the ACC Wheeler Hut. It wasn’t all work and no play, though. There were libations too, judging by the photographic evidence left on the Facebook page.

PMS Out,
ON ON!

2174 – Anal Stampede Campout

Hares : Lay’em in Snow
Where: Last Chance Saloon, Wayne, Alberta
Attendance : 16

For our yearly Stampede Campout, Lay’em organized a fantastic weekend at a legendary Alberta venue. The Last Chance Saloon is where the Jackie Chan movie “Shanghai Noon” was filmed. This 100 year old hotel has bullet holes in the walls of the bar. It is supposed to be haunted, so we recommended that only our bravest hashers stay there. I believe all opted to camp in the back of the hotel near the creek.

Fun fact: the hotel is owned by a former Calgary and Edmonton hasher: “RV” (Dave Arsenault).

The hotel manager Paula wanted to partake in a Midnight Naked Run (as that’s something hashers indulge in) but there is no evidence that such an event took place this year (yet I have it on good authority that it did).

Here are some things that did take place and for which there is photographic evidence:

On-On!

Flapjack-OFF 15

Hares : Skewbic Hare and Mucky Dip
Where: North Glenmore Park (66 Ave and 37 St SW)

This special event was part of Run Calgary’s virtual r-word series.

For the race-ists who registered, the idea was to run around the reservoir (for a total of 15k). For those that just wanted to go for a nice virtual run with Hashing pals, it was suggested that they stop at the halfway point (Scoobie and Mucky’s) for refreshments and a post-run BBQ. Scoobie provided wiener for all and tossed salad.

On-On!
