Phnom Penh Hash House Harriers: World Hash Events: April 2022

World Hash Events: April 2022

Hello hashers,

As I was drafting up this month's steaming pile of hash droppings, I paused to read what was going on 5 / 10 / 15 years ago from the WAY BACK MACHINE below in the newsletter.  TEN years ago, I was conducting a survey to see who is not the OLDEST hasher, but what hasher still alive, started hashing first.  At that time, it was a toss-up between "Tumbling Bill" Panton, and Harry "God Knows" Howell (he could have been a relative  😊 ).  So, who is the King of the Hill?  I know there are still a few hashers out there that hashed in the 60s, who are they?  Drainoil?  Mountain Rescue??


InterAmericas' Hash has been postponed to 1-4 Sep 2023.  We now wait patiently to hear what is going to happen with INTERHASH in Trinidad.  Fingers crossed all goes as planned.  For those attending, here is the planned schedule of events --->

It is also time to start thinking about the BIDS . . . where will INTERHASH go next.  So far, there are registered bids for Queenstown, New Zealand and Goa, India.  I also understand that a bid is being developed for Turkey (more to follow on that one).

The WHO has a Global Alcohol Strategy

"The World Health Organization's (WHO) Global Alcohol Strategy is to be unveiled this summer. The new initiative commits to a target of "at least a 20% relative reduction (in comparison with 2010) in alcohol per capita (among those aged 15 years and older) consumption by 2030." The aim is not a reduction in consumption by hazardous drinkers, instead the goal is to reduce alcohol use across the board, however moderate the drinker."

"Heavy-impact policy options" that the WHO wants to see adopted by nations are high taxation of alcohol products and minimum price regulations (in Ireland this year, minimum pricing more than doubled the cost of packs of beer), bans on advertising and marketing of alcoholic drinks, and restrictions on where and when alcohol can be sold."


Here is a good news story, a new hash club is born in Africa . . . the Lilongwe Full Moon H3 in Malawi.  See


There has been a solid buzz surrounding this first feature length horror movie, that includes hashing.  From New Zealand comes BUZZ CUT, at 1 hour and 45 minutes long.
