H4 History V2

Hobart Hash House Harriers

In the beginning (first year)

I967 Fred “Godsfather” Whitaker and Christopher “Lord” Eden organised the formation of our hash club essentially to provide a social summer fitness club based around their Harlequin rugby mates. Fred had previously hashed in Asia as did his fellow inaugural joint master Chris.

2 October 1967 Graham “Barrell” Farrell and Fred “Godsfather” Whitaker set the first Hobart Hash House Harriers run at Ridgeway. Those legends who participated were Fred Whittaker, Chris Eden, Tony South, John Williams, Graeme Farrell, Rex Tongue, Paddy & Frank Montgomery, Jim Parker, Mike Collins, Ian Wright, Bob Benda, Dennis Blyth, Derrick Cordwell, Michael Harris, Kevin Bint, Bernard Boot & Andy Conway.

Runs were only held in daylight saving period at 6pm. The paper trail wasn’t marked with checks, the trail just stopped and the hounds had to find the new trail

Run Fees $1 per run and $1 annual subscription

Hash tucker consisted of two viennas per hasher cooked slowly in a metho cooker

Hash brew consisted of Cascade beer 26oz longnecks and ginger beer mixed 2:1 in a hash bucket.

First Decade 1967-1977

1970 first Hash badge made for 50 runs (black felt with yellow plastic numbers)

1972/3 first professionally printed H4 T shirt organised by Trembles

Viennas were eventually replaced by real meat and exotic fare like slice and fry and a BBQ was obtained to cook on

Some Sunday morning hash runs were introduced once a month initially

H4 commenced holding annual dinners with many of the early dinners at the Lewisham Tavern and Trembles co-ordinated the making of the first hash trophies by Gary “Lostwaite” Braithwaite and others.

Chris “Joey” Harper rolled his car on Back Tea Tree Rd on his way to the Cambridge Hotel for more beers after a hash run. Max “Grandfather” Dart saw the lights of Joey’s car which was resting on its roof, and thought Joey’s car was heading towards him, swerved to miss and rolled his car. Both cars ended up side by side. That same night Mark Hill lost a wheel off his car near Cambridge on his way to the pub.

In the 1969/70 era eggs and bacon suppers were frequently held after hash at “Slim Jim” Parker’s Lindisfarne house often finishing at 2am before we drove home pissed.

1976 Rick “Roo” Southee and Ted “Lawman” Sikk set a marathon run from Phil “Thrill” Turner’s house in Flagstaff Gully up over Rocky Tom and down Stringy Bark Creek to the Cambridge Hotel and back. The first runners were back in two hours, the stragglers in 3 ½ hours and some much later. Eddy Turner (Thrill’s father) brought two hounds back to the On On site by car at 0130 hours including the Lord. The hares copped much abuse and the run which is still talked about today, is legendary.  

At the Hilton Road Timberyard, Trembles had a celebratory run and ended up being hung from a gantry with mongrels throwing piss and sauce at him. The boys were liquored up and bitch fighting broke out between Argue & Biddy, Chappy & Porno, “A” Green & Gut and Chuck Chunder and everyone. It was one of H4’s wildest nights.

Second Decade 1978-1987

1978 Ron “Flush” Turnor and Gilbert “Trembles” Leitch attended the inaugural Interhash in Hong Kong with 900 international hashers

1978 Michael “Maddog” Bowerman formed Hash House Syndicate and later on other H4 syndicates to race thoroughbreds like False Trail, Joint Masters, Hash Brew, Monday Eve, Bonus Halo etc

1978 Robert “Biddy” Badenach & Dale Monro set a run at Native Corners where 8 hashers got lost and didn’t return until 11.30pm

1979 Commenced fortnightly winter runs at 6pm

1980 Bruce “Whale” Wilkinson & Jack “Shonky” Longden organised the first topless waitresses at our 400th run. Maurie “Greek God” Clarkson attended this run as his first run, overindulged, spilt the groceries and his wife locked him in the bathroom for the night. The only way he could keep warm was to sit in the bath and fill it with hot water.

SHAG (Sunday hash action group) were formed to agitate for regular winter runs with the JM’s finally agreeing to allow runs every Monday night in 1981

1980 Interhash was held at Kuala Lumpur with about 16 H4 hashers attending and Maddog, Lord and others, putting Hobart forward as an interhash venue

1981 Commenced weekly Monday night runs; summer 6.30pm--winter 6pm

1982 Maddog, Easy Rider and others formed H5. This club was formed following a great debate and a plebiscite was held on whether women should be able to joint H4 (only two in favour of women, Easy & Trembles). There was also upward pressure on the numbers of males wanting to join H4.

1982 Biddy and Smiler formed Partridge Island Hash on the Hobart show weekend

1982 The 500th run was held on Bruny Island. There was a ferry trip to Barnes Bay for the run with the On-On held on the Derwent Explorer with exotic entertainment from Melbourne. Hash cash Sheepshead lost the chequebook and was about to call in the Police to prevent the stripper from getting on the plane to return to Melbourne. Shame Sheeps Shame. Carrington won the raffle on the 500th run which was a blow up doll that made regular H4 appearances.

The Assassins Club was active in creaming run achievers and other mongrels

Annual meetings were held at the Good Woman Inn where the members attempted in vain to tell the incoming mismanagement how to run the club

The 1982 Interhash was held at Jakarta, with sadly no H4 members attending

The “Shithead of the night” was instigated to award to a person who disgraced themselves on the night. The award, a toilet seat, was worn around their neck, was often awarded to Poonce for his abuse of fellow hashers during the run.

Intrahash runs commenced in the mid eighties and were held usually in the Midlands area with hashers from the Triabunna, Hobart, Launceston and the North West Coast attending.

The 1984 Interhash was held at Sydney with a big contingent from Tassie

That mongrel “Chuck Chunder” spews on the brand new carpet at the DSS

Max “Grandfather” Dart was the first H4 hasher to achieve 500 runs

The 1986 Interhash was held at Pattaya Thailand

Elson “Sailmaker” Kiddle went to the Admirals Cup to sail on Intrigue with some H4 money to enable the crew to have a quiet little drink on H4

20th anniversary run at Kingston where the legendary Monique entertained us. A reluctant Jules won the raffle on three occasions before disappearing in the cake with Monique

THAG (Traditional hash action group) were formed to agitate for 6.30 start times in winter and other nonsense

Third Decade 1988-1997

1988 Interhash was held at Bali with the largest travelling group to date from H4. The hotel where H4 members stayed burnt down shortly after they left

H4 conducted and participated in charity events like Brewery to Brewery run for the RHH, the 48 hour relay, Budget fun run for the RHH, Camp Quality, Headway and the Bream Creek Show.

1991 Aussie Nash Hash in Launceston had a good contingent from H4

1991 Crusha set a run from Warrane and the crew of the Missouri attended. The Quartermaster couldn’t handle the Meehan Ranges and wanted to be left to die, so DB2 & Musicman had to man-handle him back to Warrane.

Jan 1992 1000th run at Richmond with about 350 attending. The celebrations also included;

999th run at Ridgeway followed by a dinner at the Elwick Race course;

6 October 1997 30th Anniversary run at Ham Common

In the nineties Poonce produced a hashers fitness assessment for the annual report outlining his thoughts on every runner. The Poonce was very harsh on anyone he did not consider “A” grade, with the exception on DB2 who was constantly over rated. DB2 must have known something about Poonce that Poonce did not want his Glenorchy electorate to know. In recent years Mucous Boy has taken over and is just as scathing.

Music Boy was named after his old man and his musicianship. However at Interhash he was seen drooling over a number of harriets and didn’t go home for two days really worrying his parents. As a consequence Mono renamed him Mucous Boy

Hall of Shame


Superstars for claiming they are still running, rooting & raging which is a complete fabrication.

Lovechild for stuffing up the Dodges Ferry post Interhash run and having a manic desire to set marathons

Alan “Easy” Rider for a whole host of efforts like;
pissing off to Melbourne after being appointed joint master in 1974,
failing to pay annual subs and expecting uncle Max to pay for them,
putting Max’s ashes in some hash sausages he cooked for the “scattering of the ashes” run at Opossum Bay,
constantly pissing on the hash fires enveloping hashers in foul air,
claiming he was taken by aliens and having his body juices sucked from him before being returned to the On-On at Kellevie in 2007 &
attempting to run from Sydney to Melbourne without wearing a hash T shirt

Richard (Dickhead) Hughes for attempting to set a hash run on a five acre block, blaming H4 when he was breathalysed on a Monday night and for being Hughesy

Dennis “Brutus” Ransley for his “blood on the floor” Interhash take-over and for cancelling Henry “IXL” Jones’s Sunday Broadmarsh Interhash run.

To Robert “Squizzy” Taylor and Robert “Biddy” Badenach for incorporating H4 against the wishes of H4’s managing director Shonky

That mongrel Poonce for his habit of getting up hills first, turning around and abusing shit out of fellow hashers, ripping off the boys with his bookmaking activities, writing highly inflammatory remarks about each hashers running abilities in the annual report and organising athletic events and making hashers do all the work to make him look good. He also started his hashers running assessments which he published in the annual report. Poonce continued to be harsh in his assessments to anyone other than “A” graders. However DB2 continued to receive assessments above his ability which leads us to believe DB2 knows something about Poonce that Poonce doesn’t want Glenorchy voters to know about. Shame Poonce Shame.
