There is no steadfast rule about namings in the Jolly Roger H3. You may have heard that you get named on your 5th JRH3 hash. This is not true. We've named people before that have never even done a hash before. We named them during an on after they showed up to before ever even accomplishing their first trail. It all depends upon what you do. When you do something that makes you stand out we try to name you for it. We normally don't make a conscious effort to consider naming someone until they have done at least 5 JRH3 hashes. Haring a trail for the JRH3 will usually speed the process up. Once you have accomplished 4 JRH3 trails we try to put your name on the RA's checklist as a potential naming for your 5th appearance. When you have accomplished 10 JRH3 hashes and you are still not named, we begin to get embarrassed and we will pretty much insist that you get named real soon, depending upon how many hashes you miss in between your 10 trails. If you miss 10 hashes in a row you will not normally be considered for a naming until your attendance is at 5 out 10. And, Wednesday nights are not a good time to get named because most people have to get up early the next morning and go to work, so we really don't have the time. If everything goes smoothly and we find we do have time, we may conduct a naming on Wednesday, but you are much better off waiting for a Saturday hash when the pack is generally smaller and we have more time. Filling out a naming form after 5 trails and turning it in to the Name Meister is a real good way of getting our attention. Please feel free to print out the form from the website and fill it out prior to arriving at the hash, as it will save thinking time and allow more time for you to drink beer.
