Ladies and Gentlemen of the Guangzhou Hash,
Saturday 27 July is the start of the 2012 London Olympics but there is no need to travel to London to experience the thrill of victory as you compete against other hashers to be the first to make it back to the bus.
Do you have the spirit of an Olympian to be a front running bastard (FRB) and make it back to the bus to receive a medal or will you experience the agony of defeat as you follow false trail after false trail and get stuck behind the walkers or with our new most notorious BRB (that is the opposite of a FRB) Khash?
According to historical records, the first ancient Olympic Games can be traced back to 776 BC. They were dedicated to the Olympian gods and were staged on the ancient plains of Olympia. This Guangzhou Hash will be dedicated to the Beer Gods, Hunkaspunk and Constipation, and will be staged on the golden plains of Panyu.
Yes, Meatballs has finally fucked off but he still has one last mission to carry out for the GZ Hash and that is to travel to London to convince the International Olympic Committee to finally make Hashing an Olympic discipline.
Hashing leaves a lasting legacy.
Hashing has changed people’s life.
Hashing is a multidimensional sport.
And most importantly, it is Hashing that epitomizes the TRUE Olympic spirit. As Pierre de Coubertin, the father of the modern Olympic Games, put it so correctly: ‘The most important thing is not to win, but to take part.’
