Hashing is suspended until further notice…
Thursday 18th June 2020, update.
Your Hash Committee met on 18 June 2020 to discuss the present situation and develop future plans.
Hashing (as we know it…). We have been in contact with the other 16 Hashes in the south-west and with our (collective) insurer. None of the other Hashes are currently operational and none are planning on being so in the immediate future. Our (third-party liability) insurance is currently suspended (and therefore not costing us any money) but it is therefore also inoperative. The Hashes work as a group in terms of insurance and we have one policy across the whole lot of us. We (collectively) remain in touch with our insurer and anticipate that when circumstances are right for a restart we may well do so in synchrony.
Review. We agreed that we will review the options for resumption of Hashing at another committee meeting in July. Until then, L2H3 remains indefinitely suspended.
Hash camp. L2H3’s 2020 Hash camp was due to run from 19-21 June 2020 and was cancelled. The bookings with the campsite were individual i.e. between a particular hasher and the campsite. There is no contractual relationship between L2h3 and the campsite. Baz has helpfully engaged with Hashers and the campsite as our “single point of contact” to help communication. It appears likely that the campsite will offer vouchers to those who have booked with a view to future stays at a date or dates yet to be determined. Informally, this appears to be acceptable to the majority of those who we know to have booked. Clearly, individuals are free (if they wish) to pursue the campsite in the hope of a cash refund. The majority of Hashers appear to be happy with the voucher option. Baz is happy to be contacted by anybody who would like have an update.
Small group activities. Whilst L2H3 are suspended, it is possible for small groups of individuals to exercise together whilst remaining compliant with government guidance. L2H3 has no plans to organise any such events. However, it is possible that individuals with access to land may invite small groups of friends to exercise in a compliant and socially distanced manner. If this does happen, it won’t be “a Hash”, it won’t be “a run”, it won’t have a number and there won’t be any money involved.
Monday 16th March 6pm. Government advice: “We need people to start working from home when they can. You should avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such venues.”
“This is going to go on for some time…a prolonged period.”
“Everyone should stop non-essential contact with others. This is particularly important for people over 70…“
L2H3 committee met on Tuesday, 17 March 2020 to discuss our response to the current outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We considered government guidance and our responsibilities to fellow hashers and broader society as well as to ourselves. We reluctantly agreed an immediate suspension of all L2H3 activities. This indefinite suspension will be reviewed at least monthly.
We gave careful consideration to alternatives (no-pub Hashing, organised runs and walks etc). However, we were unable to satisfy ourselves that any of these were appropriate.
Hash Camp – this remains scheduled for Friday 19th June to Sunday 21st June 2020 however it is clearly in doubt and will be reviewed in coming weeks.
AGM. We have provisionally scheduled an AGM for Saturday 19th September 2020 tbc.
Sunday 22nd March 2020 at 11am CANCELLED
Hash Camp Friday 19th June to Sunday 21st June 2020 Preliminary details are on the Future Runs tab
Social media… Hon-Tec is contemplating adding L2H3 to Instagram and perhaps a public (i.e not closed) Facebook page. Please feed back your thoughts on this. Also take a look at this community app which seems a good local place for letting our community know where and when to find us. It’s free and contains loads of useful local stuff. Give it a try and let us know if you think our events should be listed there.
Hash email addresses now fixed and ‘For Hares‘ info updated, please check out the page and please help us by providing the necessary details when you kindly agree to set a run. The email addresses are on that page as well.
