The idea of having a new hash running group in Melbourne came to someone who was on a business trip to New York and while there linked up with a couple of hash groups, one being on Saturday afternoon. Great fun. Very friendly people. It is worth going to New York just to run with some of the New York hashes.
By coincidence some of the Americans at Lakeside HHH, aka Dr Boner and Mouthful, decided to set a run in the city on 21 Jan 2012, on a Saturday afternoon. So Melbourne New Moon HHH was born. They wanted to do an American style run, i.e. Yankee doodle style. Credit where it is due. Americans do hash well.
Shortly after the first run, this meetup group was formed. It is the first hash in Melbourne to use meetup. Incidentally meetup.com was started by New Yorkers after September11 to bring people together. Thank you meetup.com.
We look forward to introducing new runners of all ages to the global phenomenon that is HHH. There is something that newcomers should be aware of. Part of the hashers culture is sometimes to engage in verbal exchanges in the form of adolescent sexual innuendo. In fact they try to elevate it to an art form. It can take some getting used to. It is all harmless fun. Welcome to the Hash.
For future New moon dates see:
We will pick the nearest Saturday to the new moon.
