Trashes for Men's Hashes 76-100 Revealed to the World
Finally, in Trash 90, long-time scribe Malcolm Gough managed to pass on the onerous task of writing the trash every week to someone else. In Trash 91 the new scribe Dave Shannon shows his ambition to keep up hash literary standards with a dreadful spelling mistake in his third ever sentence. I guess typewriters did not have spellcheckers.
Trash 90 records the full list of hash officials with Keith Robinson as Hash President, Tony Russell and Derek MIllbank as Joint Hash Masters and Jan Zonnerveld as Hash Film. Does anybody know how to contact Jan so we can try and get hold of his photos. Hash Words, Hash Cash, Hash Beer, and Hash Song are also named.
An interesting fact is captured in the log book entry for Hash 89. It records that four cases of beer were purchased at $43.60 or 519 rupees, giving an exchange rate of 11.8 rupees to the dollar.
Trash 90 is the first mention of "that other mob" i.e. the Himalayan Mixed Hash. On a not unrelated theme Trash 100 records that at the bash that followed run 100, "some truly foolish proposal [was made] about allowing women to run in THE HASH.” But the Himalayan hash remained a bastion of male chauvanism for a while longer as“these fantasies of some diseased mind were dismissed quite decisively."
The stats up to Hash 100 are given in the log book with Tony Russell on 88 hashes as the most dedicated hasher to that point.
