The Hashbeens

Hashbeens Pagehead 

History of the Hashbeens

Back in 1999 in a smoked filled bar at the rear of the Ocean Child Hotel a number of Sir Lunch-a-lots were plotting the downfall of Interhash 2000 and more particularly that swine Brutus. In an effort to distract them, Uncles Cuddles suggested the formation of a new hash club dedicated to fine food, superior trails and great beverages. The new club would also recognise the unique abilities and enormous experience of its members who find that H4 runs no longer present a challenge to them. The inaugural run/dinner was planned in November 99 (a month synonymous with thoroughbreds) and it was decided that black and white would become the Hashbeen’s colours. Whilst we believed that black was a very good slimming colour, some astute Hashbeens realise that the black & white also belong to another world famous sporting club- you bastard Cuddles.

The Run

The trailed turned right out of Wattlebanks and we followed it left down Henry St then turned left into Torrens St. Here we were faced with an FT up Torrens St. Re-finding the trail on a gravel track, we headed over the Coal River via a weir then turned up Parramore and Shaw St. Eventually we entered the Richmond Park property and skirted the boundary fence dodging various crop plantations and irrigation systems. Back on a gravel track down Brinktop Rd, we re-entered the township only to be confronted with an FT up St Johns Circuit. Finding the trail on the bridge, several hashers decided they'd had enough of the heat and hashed home to enjoy the nights entertainment. The real hashers turned right and did a lap of the town passing the oval and On-On Home down Franklin St. Around 7k's. Mucous was taking notes about who completed the whole run and was dishing out the correct treatment, ie lashings of abuse.

The highlight was Scrambles being re-appointed Grand Master.

Grand Masters Report

Firstly, I must express my appreciation to the committee for offering me the position of Grand Master.

No one was more excited than my wife when I was invited to join the Hashbeens a couple of years ago, but she was totally blown away with pride when I arrived home after the last dinner with the news of my GM appointment.

No doubt the committee recognised my overwhelming management skills during my time within H4 and new the Hashbeens would go from strength to strength under my management.

The year started with great well managed runs, which of course was a result of my skilful guidance.

Then in March the world was cut down by Covid and this presented difficulties for the club that had never been experienced before and it was again fortuitous that I was at the helm to see us through.

Unfortunately, I was unable to introduce many of my exciting plans for the year and I now offer myself to the committee to extend my appointment for a further year.

Under my management we have the strength and desire to promote Hashbeens as a leading division within the Hash Worldwide Movement.

I stand willing to serve.

Years of reflection
In the Hashbeen’s twenty first year, it was determinined by a high powered group of eminent persons, it was time for some reflection of the membership of the Hobart Hash House Harriers and their contributions or otherwise to the wellbeing of the club. In over 50 years of H4’s existence there have been many positive contributions, but the group wished to focus on the mongrels who have disgraced themselves over a period of time.
