...a really long time ago in a land far, far away... this guy named 'Gispert' or 'G' as he is affectionately called helped to establish a fun, non-competetive way to get people to exercise - because we can all use exerciseright? Then rewarded them with much beer - because you can't have too much beer right?
'G' so loved the world that he created Hashing, and there was much rejoycing! The Hash Kennels were sent out to populate the world and now the Bastrop/Smithville Hash House Harriers is being born. With only 12 runs a year, cum join us the last Saturday of every month!
This group is for adults 21 yrs
The trails are often long and hard (that's what she said), there is usually drinking of alcohol involved, George Carlin's dirty words are often heard loudly, and there is the occasional flash of nudity. So, if you are under 21, are easily offended by the human body, an alcoholic or or otherwise can't take a joke, then this activity may not be for you!
thus was born the Hash house Harriers...
Where we run, we drink beer and we sing songs! Okay, really stupid songs and sometimes the content is often offensive, but we do try and offend everyone equally!
In addition to beer and song, you may be rewarded/punished with various traditional rituals:
shot checks (like jello shots pictured below) - to refresh you on your long and arduous journey
the flask of doom (liquor shots) - for talking out of turn or interrupting circle
being ice'ed - where we sit your naked @ss on the cold stuff for egregious offenses
namings - because we have way too many 'Johns'
deflourings - when you are bestowed a hash name you are no longer a 'Just Somebody'
and other long held and new traditions which seem appropriate or inappropriate at the time
