The Axarquia Hash House Harriers

If you have a Hash story or anything you think is Hash newsworthy and would like it to appear here just send all the details (with your photos) to Anagram: (hhhah3@gmail.com)


Hi Folks:

Your Mismanagement Team (MMT) have decide in our total lack of wisdom to hold elections for all the MMT posts. These are:
Grand Master (GM) - Religious Adviser (RA) - Hash Cash (HC) - Hash Right Hand (recently appointed: HRH).
The following is what is going to go down, Dudes!

The election will take place in the circle at the end of Run 323 on 24th June, 2018. It will be a simple process as befits all of the MMT and quite a lot of the Hashers. So Read On: Any Hasher wishing to stand for election to any of the above posts must email the current GM, MisToned, indicating their wish to stand for the post they aspire to be elected to, no later than midnight on Friday, 15th June 2018. As soon as possible after the time the list of candidates closes MisToned will distribute the list of candidates to AH3 Hashers.

The current GM´s email address is     lacurespain@gmail.com

Any Hasher may put themselves forward for election.  The voting process will be as follows in no particular order:

Any Hasher may vote once for one candidate in the election for each post. Some Hashers may want to stand for more than one post so each voter can vote for that Hasher in both (or more than both) elections. The phrase "Any Hasher" is to include those in our "Hash Family": for example those who have a long association with AH3 but for whatever reason are currently unable to Hash: for example:  Womble, Flopsy, Fauna, Scud. 

Voting will be by a show of hands in the circle mentioned above: Hashers who want to vote but are not able to attend Run 323 on 24th June, 2018 can vote by email to the current GM, MisToned, NO LATER than midnight on Friday 22nd June 2018.
Election for each post will be determined by simple majority of the votes cast for each candidate. Votes Cast will be the sum of the show of hands plus email votes.
The GM will count the votes.
The first election will be for the post of GM. If the current GM is not successful (assuming she stands) the newly elected GM will conclude the election process.

As our organiser Double Entry said: The lunch at Tanit was an real enjoyable occasion. Good to get together with so many friends. (more pictures, click on Photos)

Hola all you good, faithful and regular Hashers ( I hope you are regular anyway: it can get a little uncomfortable if you are not!)

I am sure all you folks who have Hashed through many years, or even for a somewhat shorter time, have been awed by the shrewdness, prudence and, yes, brilliance of the AH3 Financial Management regime: ie ME! No. no! I don't want your praises or to be showered with gifts or even the odd beer or two: but if you insist I will humbly accept.

Now to the real point of this drivel: AT LAST all the hard work by me and my team at the Treasury plus the loyalty of you contributors to my annual holiday and Xmas dinner have enabled your MisManagement Team to offer you a small but well deserved reward.
SO: on
Friday 1st June 2018 we have booked lunch for those long serving and regular Hashers to enjoy at Tanit near the lighthouse in Torre del Mar at 1:30PM. 

This will be Tanit's regular Menu del Dia for which AH3 is footing the bill (excluding beverages: I'm not that good a financial wizard!).

Like I've hinted at in the above tripe, this is for regular and faithful members of the Hash Family: afraid we can't stretch to funding one time hashers, house guests, mates who saw a bit about hashing in Insight, friends of friends who've got a pair of trainers, a hitchhiker you picked up on the way to the RV, someone you know who has a bag of flower:  just the "True Blue B******* Through and Through!"  

I'm sure you get the drift!

Tanit say they will have the Menu available by Monday 28th May and I'll get it out to you that day. You can then give me your menu choices.

SO: what I need now: FIRSTLY PLEASE TELL ME IF YOU CAN MAKE IT so that I can confirm numbers to Tanit. I'd like your commitment by Monday 21st May please.

Look forward to hearing from you soon and 
ON ON

Note from Zulu to Mungo and his reply:

Not Forgotten?? Hi Mike heard a rumour that you have totally sold up in Spain and re-located to UK on a permanent basis!!!! If true, we wish you and Janet all the best and are sorry that we did not get to have a drink with you before you left!!! Many thanks for your starting the Axarquia Hash House Harriers which is enjoying a good lease of life with in excess of 20 Hashers on a regular basis and on occasions 30 plus. Regards Alan aka Zulu

Out of sight but ? Yes we are back in UK after a very surprising offer on our house in Los Kikos which with mixed emotions decided to accept. It was all a fearful rush from offer to completion in less than six weeks so we had little time to say our farewells It was a pleasure to be a founder member of the AH3 and to serve as GM for so many years It is also  tribute to all of you stalwarts who have carried on regardless. Although we are now going to embark on some new adventures I do hope we will not be forgotten Who knows maybe a ghost from the past may surprise one day
All the best to you, Zulu and Womble and the whole hash

Hola fellow Hashers!

Yes: CAMP'18 is on the horizon. 

This year's dates are: arrive 10th Sept., sleep over on 10th and 11th Sept., depart after recovery run on 12th Sept. The link below is the web site of the proposed hotel in Priego de Cordoba: nearish to Cordoba but not in the city: Google Maps will help you to find it. 

http://www.zercahoteles.com/index.php/hotel-rural-huerta-de-las-palomas/

What I would like from you guys now is an EXPRESSION OF INTEREST so that we can go ahead with the planning. The Hash from Donnington in UK are keen to join us for Camp'18 which will be nice. Flying Widget is the link Hasher in Donnington and he and Dog's Bollocks will be HaresInCharge. As for last year we don't think pets are allowed. Sorry Whino et al!

We are awaiting confirmation from the hotel of availability of rooms and sample menus for dinner. GUESSTIMATE  of pricing at the mo is around €185 per couple for 2 nights B&B, dinner plus 2 hashes. This is subject to confirmation.

SO: I am not available much over the next few weeks so Zulu has kindly agreed to collate a list of interested parties. Please let him know ASAP of your interest in principle: his email address is   imp1274@yahoo.co.uk

Looking forward to yet another great AH3 SUMMER CAMP!

Anyone wishing to take part this year in the VII Carrera Rural at Benamargosa needs to pay the entry fee at one of the banks in the village and then take the receipt up to the gym.

A couple of observations I have made while hashing are:
1.  For every downhill, there is an uphill twice as long, and twice as steep.
2.  The difference between running uphill and walking uphill is that you take shorter steps while running, the speed remains the same.
And a piece of free advice - never check downhill.
On on.

35 Hashers, Six Virgins, Two Easter Eggs, One Birthday Boy and a 10K Run

Axarquia Hash House Harriers were out in force on Easter Sunday for Run 291 which took place in the Vinuela area.  Seasoned hares  Bunyan and Routemaster set a 10K-plus trail that was mainly on good track but they threw in a few hundred olive groves,  some steep-ish valleys and a couple of ploughed fields to stop us getting too comfortable! At the end of the hash Jammy Git and F Troop, who had both just completed their 200thrun, were each awarded a Cadbury’s Crème Egg. A post-hash curry put back all the calories we’d burned off, after which we celebrated Routemaster’s 68th  birthday with an excellent carrot-and-other-healthy-things cake made by our very own Null Points. 

With good weather here to stay and minimal chance of rain for the coming months now is a good time to join Axarquia Hash Harriers and get fit for the summer.  Just click on Next Run for location and directions. All you need is suitable footwear and €4 per person to cover water, soft drinks, beer and crisps.  There’s always a post-hash meal, so you might also want to bring something to change into.

We will run as the hash that week.

Registration is open now and can be carried out at Base Sports in Torre or Velez Malaga. It is €10 each with profits going to charity shown in the link.

You will get a "goodies bag" but not from Base: the place and date/time for collection of the goody bag is still to be advised.

As this is more expensive than the usual Hash,  Hashers doing the Colour Run will not be required to pay for Run 291 so that will effectively be AH3 contribution to the charity.

MUY IMPORTANTE!  Hasher doing this and wishing to go an on on afterwards PLEASE let me know by next Wednesday as there will be thousands of people wanting to eat and restaurant reservations will very hard to come.

Hasher uniforms in the shape of a cheap Chinese shop TuTu will be compulsory: team colour to be advised!

Meeting time/place etc to be advised.

Hola Happy Hash Campers,

All you Ah3 Hashers.

We are a Hashing club and enjoy a Hash every other weekend. To do this we always need Hares to lay trails for each Hash.
If all our regular Hashers (we have 20 to 25 right now), were to Hare, whether it be shared or on their own, for a minimum of TWO Hashes per year, then we would never run out of Hares for the 25 Hashes per year.
Please think about becoming a Hare and put your name down. It's not that difficult.

Hola Hashers,


All you Ah3 Hashers. Camp 2016 will be, by popular demand, set at the same location
as last year!! Mecina/Fondales in the Alpujarra's.
The dates are Monday 12th Sept. 2016, to Wednesday14th. Sept.
2016 hence two nights three days.This years cost is €50.00 per person per night which includes,Dinner, bed and breakfast, with some drinks, two Hash Runs with the water/beer/softdrinks/crisps included, and is based on two sharing.
This is only €5.00 more than
last year and is being subsidised by Hash Cash, (well strictly speaking the Hash funds!!!)
We have negotiated a favourable price with the hotel apart from the subsidy
but do need Hashers to commit to attending.

The Hash Runs will be different to last year and the main Hash Run has already be recce'd and, though I say it myself, it is good!!!
Can I ask you to reserve your places via me, imp1274@yahoo.co.uk
initially, and to pay a €50.00 per person deposit A.S.A.P at the next available Hash or by other arrangements. Balance not required until the Camp.
The hotel require 50% deposit due to the booking being so far ahead and only
two nights. Once the deposit is paid to the Hotel it becomes non-refundableunless the places can be sold on.
There will be  set menu's, as last year, and I will forward these on when I receive
them.

PLEASE let me know with your reservation if you are vegetarian.Dogs are not prohibited but there is a €6.00 supplement per medium sized dog and of course they are not allowed in the restaurant or in the pool area.

Cannot think of anything else but knowing Hashers someone will have a questionso just ask and if I can answer it I will or I know a man/woman who will!!!

Hi All,
Just a quick heads up as I know that there are a few of you who like to stay in Spain for the Festive season and last year stayed in hotels on the coast.
We went to Torremolinos for a few days over Christmas and we were very pleasantly surprised ( bearing in mind that we haven't been there for about 15 years ). We stayed at the Rui Belplaya, Torremolinos on an all inclusive package ( hmmm , drinks as well ! ) and can highly recommend the hotel, we thought extremely good value for money hence we are returning again this year.
Anyway to cut a long story short, alpharooms.co.uk  ( the only website that currently is taking bookings for Xmas at the Belplaya ) have now published prices for Xmas 2016, there has been a £2 per night increase but still a very good deal. We recommend booking a room with a sea view for just a few pounds more but well worth it. They also have single rooms where you are not charged a double occupancy which for my mother was a bonus. Deposit for bookings are only £1 at the moment.

Anyway just thought we would let you know incase people are thinking of staying on the coast, might see you there for a drink or two ? Might even be able to arrange a hash or at least a long walk ,  if anyone is interested ?
Here is the link:
