Visitors and new hashers (virgins), we start meeting at the listed times and start hashing a half hour later. Time for a quick beer.
Anyone want off this list,
email Horn-E at H3HornEH3 and it will be done. 

Urban hashing in Chicago is returning with some differing conditions. Will advise as best as I know or check their web sites.  Things keep changing and I am just getting out the best info I have at the moment. New hashers or visitors, because of the virus and lock down, many hashes are back yards or parks and laid back finishes. Lawn chairs might be advised. Visitors, we might have a spare. Life is what it is. We charge $5 or $6 for hash cash or BYOB. Hash cash money goes to beer. Thirstday H3 is either quitting for the winter at the end of Oct. or going on a once a monty basis.

The Tale of the Trail

Thu, Oct 22. 2020, the Thirstday Hash. Location was set for Wieboldt Park with no hare and probably the last + 70 degrees hash for at least 4 to 5 months. We had only three hounds show up to run. Pathetic. You missed a great trail and night of hashing. So Cockholm Syndrum had some chalk and took up the duty of Hare for Its Too Soft and Horn-E. With no shag wagon we all had to carry back packs full of clothes and beer, etc. We gave him a 4 minute head start and never caught him. Horn-E led through about four Splits before the first Check. Then Horn-E went straight, wrong and Its Too Soft picked right, right, and was gone. But after several Splits, Horn-E caught up at a Triple split. This time Its Too Soft went straight and Horn-E went right. Horn-E was on and yelled out. I thought I saw him as I reached the end of the alley and waved and ran on. Did't see him again. A few marks later I got to a Split and was going to cross Belmont first. I started marking the checks/splits with a ? for the direction I went. If nothing I went back and crossed that out and put in another ?. If I didn't find something, repeat. If I found something I didn't come back. Should have worked and I ran on. Trail went to Roscoe and then east and back and forth between Roscoe and the close alleys. Trail finally went west in the alley from Damen. A long alley. At the end was a Triple Split and I didn't see marks left or right. Ooops. It was left. Anyhow a long alley straight and no marks at the end. I wasn't going bck. So I just posted ? and started ranging, right and east and crossed his trail that went straight south on Ravenswood with Splits, to the finish. Meanwhile I ended up over on Lincoln and did a big loop south and into the finish. FRB. About five minutes later Its Too Soft came on in. We were joined by Back Door Bizzle who didn't run. So we made him R. A and had some DDs and such and finished with Swing Low and sat around drinking, still in shorts and t-shirt. Beautiful night. Next spring suckers.

Sun. Oct 11, 2020, The Chicago Hash, Hare was some masked man, oops, Double Meter Beater. The pack gathered and we took off with just 6 hounds and no Chicago Harriett again. None period. The Bushman had three last week and they are the men's hash and the so called Mother Hash of Chicago can only come up with six men at the start. About 3 blocks into trail we were joined by Back Door Bizzle making seven men, the usual suspects, as usual. So we ran off to the north and west and got stuck at a Split on Western. Horn-E finally spotted a hidden in plain sight mark and we headed into an alley where Horn-E went right, wrong. So he paralleled the pack as we headed west and finally Cockholm Syndrum popped out of a gangway joining Horn-E as we headed north. Quickly Stiffy 4 Stiffies passed us to a Triple Split. It was found to the east in the alley as we followed Some Crappy Name and then at a Split Horn-E found trail to the north in another alley. We made our way to Logan Blvd and near Western when trail crossed Logan and headed west and Horn-E got stuck with traffic. So, now I'm following but I managed one short cut by looking ahead and seeing Cockholm Syndrum a few blocks away. That was it for those damn FRBs. Trail went north west to Diversey and California and then north at the red light. And I caught the red light. Damn. Now I will never catch up. I head under the Expy and to a Split. I picked right, right, and ran on. Then a damn north turn. I wondered about it, but you follow trail. Yep, a long block later the trail turned right and right and back down the other side of the street. A great move for the pack and the FRB, but now I'm just dragging along. As I headed south I suddenly saw Its Too Soft and called out, saving him some dead end running. We ran on with Its Too Soft following until we hit a Split on Elston. Unmarked, so I kept going south. Nothing. Lookng back, Its Too soft was still standing there. So I ran further and nothing, finally waving that I had nothing and I started ranging. From there, there were probably only three choices, north on western for the Eagle of a Turkey Eagle Split, through a housing complex, or south to Diversey. Nothing on Diversey and I couldn't see Its Too Soft so I ranged further east on Diversey and as I approached the river, the four FRBs emerged from a gangway. And there was the Turkey/eagle split. They ran off and Pony Pounder tried to text Its Too Soft and let him know were to come to. I headed south and ran on in on the Turkey Trail. As I was about to cross Fullerton, I saw Stiffy 4 Stiffies and Pony Pounder coming from the eagle and couldn't join them. Traffic again. Finally got across and was passed by Some Crappy Name and Cockholm Syndrum just before the finish. About 5 minutes later Its Too Soft came in and another 10 minutes before Back Door Bizzle came in. Not a bad trail for a relatively new hare. I didn't say that. some one hi-jacked my email. Cool, but still a nice day.

On On


Low and ON ON Horn-E

The Hash Hymn - sung world wide at the conclusion of hashes and for the hearing impaired.

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

Swing low, sweet chariot, cuming four two carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot, cuming four two carry me home. (chorus)

I looked over Jordan and what did I see, cuming four two carry me home,
A band of Angels cuming after me, cuming four two carry me home,

If you get there, before I do, cuming four two carry me home,
Tell all my friends, I'm cuming two, cuming four two carry me home,

Some times the chorus is followed by humming and silent verses.
