Hare Blessing

Tonight we play the game of Clue
Our hares arrived but no one knew
They planned a little mystery hash


__________________was in the STUDY
Playing with _____________'s little buddy
Took his LEAD PIPE to the face
Moments before our sacred race

That's how you play the game of Clue
__________come, but no one knew
He's here to hare our mystery hash
Now that he got a piece of ass

Reapeat after me;

Cop us no catch us
Pipe us no bash us
Rope us no hang us
Rain us no soak us
Standard Blessing

 Hash Trash (Expanded Hash Trash or map of trail)

It was a wet and rainy night. And as a result, only 14 faces showed up. However, Kitty Litter and Access All Areas, did call me by telephone to let me know their status. They almost made it, but decided to turn around and go back home because of bad traffic and poor weather. Kitty said the Gandy Bridge was a parking lot and Access said her dog didn't like the idea of getting wet (or something like that). I wonder how many others started to come out but then changed their minds after they left home? But I knew the weather would be a factor from the get go, so I expected as much. They were forecasting a 60% chance of rain. That's why I decided to have trail start from the location where I did. Because it had shelter where we could back the beer van up to and keep everyone dry during circles. On top of that, nobody volunteered to hare. I really didn't want to ask the Spare Hares to set trail again. Diaper had just laid 3 trails in a row and Ranger Ralph laid 3 out of the last 4 in a row (They finally figured out its not a good idea for both Spare Hares to hare together though). Then I thought about laying trail myself. But I only do preset, dead hare, trails. And with a 60% chance of rain, I figured it would get washed away and then I'd have to set it again, live, at hares away time, and I would surely get caught on foot, and I doubt if the pack would be amused watching me hare away on a bicycle. So my only other option would be to declare this as pick up hash. But, I thought, "who would really show up for that?" So, I though I would spice it up a bit. In fact, why even announce it as pick up hash. I'll just keep it secret with and come up with a crazy scheme to distract everybody's attention from the weather. I came up with the idea of having some sort of game for the pack to play before trail and have the winner awarded with the honor of being the first hare for a pick up hash. That might even be funny, which it was. So, I chose a bastardized version of Clue. As attendees showed up they were given a toe tag with a Clue Game character on the front and a Clue Game weapon on the back. They were told they needed to hang the toe tag on them for everyone to see. All of the characters and weapons were handed out on toe tags except for one. That one I kept in may pocket. That's the one everyone had to figure out as the Clue Game murderer and the weapon used. Since all of the possible combination of characters and weapons where handed out on toe tags, it was a simple task of elimination to find out what character and weapon were on the toe tag I had concealed from everyone. The pack was told they could at any time make a guess, rather than go through all 36 possibilities. About 1/2 way through the ciphering, Ranger Ralph guessed the correct combination and was awarded the Clueless Award - a bag of flour and the information that he was the hare for a pick up hash. Everyone laughed, so I guess it worked Okay.

In addition to character/weapon toe tags, everyone was also given a pencil and a Hash Clue Detective Sheet to keep track of what characters and weapons were in play. See below for a copy of the detective sheet. The ones that were not given out were the answers.

All in all, it was just another shitty hash!
