UK Nash Hash
Hare Ye Well!
June 2019: It may have escaped your notice, but last months Diary was Issue No. 360 - which equates to 30 years of continuous monthly publication, the initial 17 years having been edited by Biggles. It may be time to reveiw the way in which it is presented and following on from last months request for information regarding the actual printing of The Diary in this format, no one has contacted me to tell me they print it, so I will therefore be activily reviewing the way in which it's presented
Wigwam has decided to pass on the reigns of the Gispert Gallop, should anyone wish to take them on, and Isca are back with the Roman Awayday. Also Ashburton have a Wild West themed evening next month. I'm sure there will be more to follow!
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.
