Ladies and “Gentlemen” of the Guangzhou Hash,
For all the beautiful trails, classic fuckups, scenic beer stops, pool drinks, antics in the circle, and boisterous bus rides back to the Mango Bar, the Hash really comes down to the friendships made and memories shared with fellow hashers. Not many in the Guangzhou Hash have contributed to providing more of the aforementioned than Handyman, who we remember this Saturday as he moves on-on to the Great Hash in the Sky.
Sadly, Handyman passed away at his home on August 9th by his own choosing. He will be remembered as a terrific hasher, excellent hare and overall great friend. He will be sorely missed.
As every hare knows; your last hash is the one that counts. So in his honor, Handyman’s last trail will be set one last time: with a beer stop farewell before we convene at B point to share memories and laughter in the circle. In memoriam, we ask that hashers wear black on trail for this run.
A collection will also be taken and presented in Handyman’s name to a suicide prevention organization operating here in China. Those not able to attend may contact the GM or Hash Cash to donate. If even one life can be positively affected by our efforts, it will be an exceptional tribute to our friend and fellow hasher.
Join this Saturday as we remember the one, the only, and the true blue - Handyman.
