The Tale of the Trail:

The Thirstday Hash had a run on 16 May, 2019, set by The Cock Whisperer for 12 hounds from the Damen Tavern. We headed out with Horn-E leading the pack. Yeah, like that would last long. They finally surged past Horn-E and he was back were that old fart belongs. And about 6 blocks later he lost all sight of the pack. But running on, A Whole Lotta Cum was spotted up ahead and he joined her on trail as they both kept dropping further back. So the two slugs pushed on, hoping for that T and E trail. East and west and slowly heading south. Finally we hit that T and E Split. And the Turkey trail went through a gate. Wouldn't you know that the gate was locked. So they followed the Eagle trail and soon, well not so soon, managed to do the whole trail. Finish was along railroad tracks and down a dirt road into deep weeds. When the pack arrived, and were having a quick beer, the transit cops arrived. Ooops. Bust them all. But TampOn TampOff went over to them and told them we were just a small running club and we liked to finish our runs and have a few beers to cool down. Hey, great. Just don't go up on the tracks. Wouldn't it be nice of more cops weren't like that. So Rusty Grundel started circle and all was good. Well, until we ran out of beer. But all was still good.

Then On Sat, 18 May, 2019, Horn-E headed out to Lechowicz woods to lay a Bushman Hash. Beautiful day and almost to warm. Most off woods parts were dry and some wooded paths were low water or nice slippery muck. But mostly good running. Then it was  over to the start and see who would show. Slit Digger, False Advertising and Sir Poops A Lot. Suddenly the rain started to show up. Hey, that was supposed to arrive in an hour. They took off down the hill and at the second mark they went straight, It was supposed to be a right turn. That is my story and I'm sticking to it. But right away, Sir Poops A Lot took another look at the rain coming in and he returned to his car and took off. He missed a great trail. The other two headed past a shelter, were they weren't supposed to be going and picked up on the On In trail and within another hundred yards they were at the beer stop. But Horn-E wasn't there. He was racing off to buy beer. The rains now really started with a down pour and they ran back to the shelter. And no freaking beer. Meanwhile Horn-E ran on and got as far as the foot bridge over the tracks and hid underneath waiting out the rain. He also ran into Lower Wackoff, peddling his ass around the forest preserve. So there we were under the bridge. Lower Wackoff finally used his cell phone to call False Advertising and told him were we were. We soon regrouped as the rain was slowing down. But the trail was completely f*cked. A decision was made and we headed over to Corib for a few Guinness and got the first round free. Not bad. I then got a ride to my bus and was home by 4:15. That never happens that early. Shit happens.

The Tale of the Trail:

On Wed. 24 Apr, 2019 we had a Whiskey Wednesday Hash with a last minute hare, the Son Of Spam and set from Easy Bar. We had a small pack, probably due to the last minute announcement. But we did manage to have five hounds and a visitor who walked to the beer stop with the hare. Our hare tried a new mark, a combination of Back Check and Split. Did it work. We will forever curse the gods that gave him that idea. Well, it sort of worked. At the fist one, I think Hooch B4 Cooch blew right through it on the Split option, I eventuyally I followed. Meanwhile the rest went fot the Back Check. They eventyually were catching up to me at the next one. This time it went back to the Back Check that was really marked screwy. But we found it and finally caught Hooch B4 Cooch at a Check. Again, screwed up with the On mark way around a corner. By now, Hooch B4 Cooch was so frustrated by the marks that he was about to just go off on a long run on his own. but we finally stunbled onto this mark and we were off again. I was as usual falling behind when I spotted Khal Drunko The Turd's head lamps two blocks away through an alley. Bingo, I was On again. Hooch B4 Cooch was out of sight and not seen until the beer stop. I followed Khal Drunko The Turd and found myself ahead of Its Too Soft and Deek Hermonica At the next Check, Horn-E and Deek Hermonica found trail and ran on to a Check at Division. We all struggled here. Khal Drunko The Turd disappeared, on trail, and was next seen at the beer stop. That left three of us. I wandered off to the west and then north and suddenly found a Check. I managed to eventually find this and had no trouble following the trail from there to the beer stop, just behind Deek Hermonica and ahead of Its Too Soft. Here we held circle before heading back to the bar. Hey, it sucked, but it somehow worked.

There was a TH3 Hash that I missed out of Carols. CTA had at least two missing buses in a row. So I went to the local and had a few beers.

On Sun Chicago Hash had a trail from Chipp Inn. Had to miss it due to other plans. .

Also heard at the last
minute, 9:30 Sat night, about a Second City Hash in Palatine, set by Cums On All Bases. She even admitted a last minute Facebook posting and maybe a no show even though she would set a trail.

Ooops. Got some quick updates after this was published.
We have a Chicago Area attendance problem. The attendance this winter is the lowest I can remember in 30 years. Single digits for even the weeklies and everyone knows when they are, except when they aren't, and not always where they are until the last minute, and not always on their web site. Several occasions had monthly hashes getting more attendance then the weeklies. Should never be happening. Timely, complete announcements, well in advance, are the single greatest things to increase attendance. Or doesn't anyone care anymore. This week really demonstrates that fact. Four hashes that I know of and I only know of one location. They might be announced on Facebook, but not everyone is on Facebook. So, apparently we aren't invited unless I get an email from someone or I was at a hash were it was announced. Sorry Lower Wackoff, I can't help you much this week. Looks like I'm not invited either. I have a really nice calendar where these things could be announced, well in advance. If you have signed up to hash, surely you can find someplace before the day of the hash. Like weeks before the hash. Chicago Hash also has a calendar. Of course as if this moment, their calendar doesn't even have their own hash listed for Monday. With all of these hashes in town, there are only five working web sites. Sometimes. Really, Chicago often doesn't get updated until real close to the date and after I sent out my posts. Thirstday misses completely, all to damn often. Again, I can't pass on any information. Whiskey Wednesday's hasn't been updated for months. I manage to usually get the Big Dog Hash site listed weeks in advance. But again, not always due to lack of hare input. Now, what about Facebook. Apparently you have to join the group. Does that affect visitors. Probably. How would they know about all of the different hashes, their dates and locations. This last week was a good example. Last minute notice for Second City. Did anyone show? Another issue with Facebook is everyone on Facebook thinks that they can always check there at the last minute. The trouble with that is, all to often you find something else to do instead because there was nothing listed in advance. Our efforts should be to list our hashes well in advance and making the hash your first choice instead of something to do as a last resort. Really, we should be better then that, but we never will be the way we're doing things. Then throw in changing dates, special hash add ons, moving to another hashes scheduled date, two hashes continually scheduled on the same date. Really we can do better by picking and posting your locations early and cooperating between all of the hashes to eliminate conflicts for greater attendance. It really is more fun to set a trail for 20 or more then hopefully two or three. And you might be able to get good beer prices from various bars with a decent crowd. Just my opinion. Rant over. Have fun if you can find out where to go.
