HHH Hash Trash 13 February 2009

While today is all black and catty, tomorrow is all red and rosy as hashers from around the state come together (ooh-aah) in their rouge-hued finery for the annual Red Dress charity run.

This year the run is supporting Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania and their '65 Roses' awareness campaign ('65 Roses' is held to be a small child's attempt to say 'Cystic Fibrosis'). Cystic Fibrosis, or CF, is the most common life threatening, recessive genetic condition affecting Australian children, with at least 30% of teenagers with the disease not reaching adulthood.

Red-dressed hashers should assemble at the Regatta Pavilion at 1:30pm for pre-run fashion shoot, with 'on on' being called at 2:00pm. Cost is $25, which covers run, p!ss stop, special commemorative pin, printed patch, food and some after run drinks (BYO supplies if you want more than a taste).

Afterwards, those finding themselves all frocked up with no place to go will head to a local drinking establishment and try not to get kicked out because they're too old.
Don't forget the Swine '09 - Park Beach H3's 10th anniversary Pig Pen run on Saturday 21 February. Full details at
The Burnie Hash red fashion stakes have been won by Ratchet, despite (or because of) some late fashion shots of Ringo and Urang.

This week's poll is: Which celebrity pig would make the best hasher?
Go to, look for the poll on the right side of the page and record your vote (closes next Thursday).
