Why are your web page titles in that hideous pink colour!?
This is a tribute to our humble Religous Adviser, Zoran 'Bummer McAgram Goricki', who dresses totally in pink for any big
hash event (see group photo)!!
Who started this Hashing thing?
The Hash House Harriers received its humble beginnings in 1938 from a Britisher named Albert Stephen Ignatius Gispert, in
what is now Malaysia. Having a fondness for the "paper chase", he gathered together several expatriates to form
a group in Kuala Lumpur that would later become a world-wide legacy. The fraternity received its name from the Selangor Club
Chambers, which due to it's lackluster food was commonly referred to as the 'Hash House'. There are currently almost 1500
hashes, including groups in almost every major city in the world, listed in the World Hash House Harriers Database maintained
by Global Trash, the world hash publisher. Keep in mind when reading the history of hare and hounds, what separates the Hash
House Harriers from other harriers groups is as much emphasis on the social camaraderie and non-competitive aspects of the
group's activities, as on the sport of hare and hounds itself. Whereas membership in other harrier groups can be traced by
its founding members prior to 1938, it is generally accepted that the sport of Hash House Harriers, in contrast to other hare
and hounds groups, was defined by this particular club and all other groups of the Hash House Harriers can trace their lineage
(directly or in concept) back to the Selangor Club Chambers or the Hash House in 1938.
