RUN 2318 – This Run Will Be Insane!

Hares: Insane Bolt

Location: Moose’s Beanery and Bar Room

779 Northmount Dr NW, Calgary, AB T2L 0A1


RA: Hardly and Twisty

Attendance: 24

Lights to Show You The Way!

The Beginning

Insane Bolt volunteered to set the trail. After some though, the start point of Moose’s Beanery and Bar, on Northmont Road NW as selected as the start location. A good venue with a big room in the back where we can misbehave, and a selection of tasty beer and food. Moose’s is also quite close to the large Christmas light display off 14th Street NW.

Of note is the scribe had a much better offer than go hashing, and had to activity participate in cheering the Calgary Flames to victory from the lower bowl seats. As such, the photos and the stories are from others, with the daunting task to making up a story falling to the scribe.

No idea what happened in the circle, and no pictures were forthcoming. It appears that we had an archive, SuperSoaker appear. Being related to the On-In, we are pleased that he convinced the long lost hasher to come out and run with us.

Of note, apparently it was Roaring Nancy’s 400th run this night. A significant event that is celebrated with the acquisition of the ugliest, heaviest Hash trophy. A delight for the person dispensing with it, and a burden for the recipient, not counting the days before the next 400th run victim comes forward.

Here is an artistic rendition of the circle that would have taken place. Likely lead by either On-In or the returning vacation princess, Princess Monkey Spanker. Welcoming the group, introductions, announcements and awards acknowledgement for the 400th run. Archive SuperSoaker and appointment of Hardly and Twisty as RA for the Christmas themed down-downs. Likely Insane Bolt explained the marks he had chose to use. Roaring Nancy inquired if the run followed the Abu Dhabi convention. And they were off!

The Trail

The hashers were released into the dark to find the marks Here are some photos of what was seen on trail.

I expect that there was a regroup that was enjoyed but not photographed. Here is more evidence that there was indeed a trail.

The Down Downs

I suspect that the group made its way back to the bar, picked a table with their friends and ordered drinks and food prior the the closing ceremonies. Apparently Hardly and Twisty were selected (volunteered) for the RA responsibilities. I see that the dug up some of the RA trappings that have been absent for some time. It would also appear that the Christmas song book made and appearance, and a choir of Hump the Shark, Cock Tail, and Hot Cheeks were pressed into vocal service.

Here are a couple of random pictures of people getting down down’s. Obviously crimes were committed and they must be punished or rewarded. At this level, I suspect the Hare was downed for setting a shitty trail. SuperSoaker was acknowledged and welcomed back to the hash, as he is On-In’s spawn. Most other offences were likely sexual in nature, but low level misdemeanors.

The main event was the acknowledgement of Roaring Nancy’s 400th run. PMS was lost for words with the handover of the best trophy ever to its new recipient. A significant milestone for Roaring, and a new name on the plaque. PMS is so sad to have this out of her house…..

With the down-downs complete, the group was on the piss. Perhaps someone has some gadget evidence of the trail which can be posted here.

The Trail

Apparently 5.5 km were run. A fine trail, so they say.

Semper ubi, sub ubi

Hares: Tighty Whitey with assistance from Lying Sack of Shit

Location: Kilt and Caber Pub, Mackenzie Town SE

53 High St SE, Calgary, AB T2Z 0N2


RA: Roaring Nancy

Attendance: 19

The Regroup not to be missed!

The Story

Tighty Whitey stepped up to save the hash, once again. From a southern start point, close to Okotoks, the run was convened to start at the Kilt & Caber Ale House, the in wilds of Mackenzie Town SE. Who knew that people and communities existed at these southern latitudes? After tackling the traffic circle chaos on the way to the start, all was well. You just had to know where to park, and where the pub was to make this work. Thank Google!

The Beginning

GPS directions did not fail. The group of 19 enthusiastic hashers were present to enjoy the spectacle . Surprisingly, we had a new boot. Ernie lives in the area, and finally decided to determine what this drinking club with a running problem was all about. We have been working on Ernie recruitment through the TGIF sub group, and apparently we have had success! Welcome Ernie to the cult…. He also has a doggy companion, who was also welcome to the group.

Ernie, the new boot, with dog and Roaring Nancy. RN seems pleased!

The circle took form and the happy hashers were there in style. The weather was quite OK for this time of year, and the group were ready to challenge the trail.

Apparently, there was some complaining about Tighty Whitey’s las trail. Not enough marks….was the complaint. For this trail TW had conscripted Lying Sack of Shit (LSOS) to over mark the trail. As such, the amount of chalk that was deposited on the pathways and sidewalks was enough the have a material consequence in the world chalk supply. As evidence, the following marks were provided.

Most of the group had no idea what these marks were for.

The dumfounded looks can be seen on the faces of the harriers…. The pack was released to attempt to discover the marks that had been laid.

The Trail

After some level of confusion, the marks were found and the pack was off. Mackenzie Town has a pond on the community of Inverness. Who knew that you could feel like you were lost in Scotland without leaving Alberta. The smart hashers soon realized that we would be doing the big circle, with some playground distractions. Where to next?


After some confusing marks, whether it was Eagle and Turkey, or Easy and Tough, an option was offered for the trail to the regroup. The smart hashers had already figured this out and cut across to where the trail had to go. The unusual light display was like to beacon to the beer.

Could this be a sign?

The Down Down’s

A short distance from the regroup was the Kilt & Caber Ale House. They had a good space for us at the back of the pub where we could eat and perform the closing ceremonies.

Roaring Nancy was appointed Religious Advisor for the evening.

Roaring Nancy is ready….

His first task was to appoint a choir of Hardly, Mucky Dip and Slippy Thong.

The Choir

Roaring delivered a fine performance of accusation, stories and half truths. Quite entertaining, in a climate controlled environment.

The down-down complete, eating and socializing commenced. See if you can recognize these meals! On the piss!
