UK Nash Hash
Hare Ye Well!
August 2019: Progress has been good with the new Google Calendar based version of the SW Diary soon to be released. The additional functionality will enable entries to be input and updated in real-time; much more information to be included; and if used fully, will provide links directly to the exact location on Google Maps which will enable Google's 'Directions' facility to be used as a satnav! Exciting possibilities - and no more lost hashers trying to find the start!
Gromit and Guzunder (Ashburton H3) have brought to my attention their July 30th hash. With the help of others, they are looking to raise money for WaterAid, a very worthy cause and probably something we take too much for granted. Please support them if you can.
I've been asked to draw your attention to the Dartmoor National Park's policy regarding 'events' on the moors. Whilst accepting that hashing is not the same as say, Ten Tors, they do require notice and advice if there are to be more than 50 participants. Also, there are 'out of bounds' areas due to ground nesting birds for some of the year. These are also detailed from links on our homepage. Please circulate this information if your pack uses Dartmoor.
The National Trust are reinforcing the need to request access to their land, and have asked us again to give them as much notice of an intended hash as we can. This is nothing new. The Diary has always carried their contact number, however insurance and risk assesments have also been requested. Talks are in progress and more information has been requested to provide comprehensive guide on our website. I encourage all hare masters to make themselves aware of the detail, and revisit to review updates.
Have your future events added to the Diary and Notices for maximum publicity - and of course, keep an eye on them yourselves. If you've never been on a hash weekend before, do it this year! Loads of effort goes into making a fun weekend that'll wash away the work day blues!
If you're a visitor to our region, there's always loads going on down here so just check out the 'Diary' and the 'Notices' to see for yourself!
If there's anything you'd like to see here - ideas for additional content, new links or even corrections - please let me know and I'll do my best to oblige.
