These poor saps are the ones who were elected to mismanage the activities of the Panama City Hash House Harriers. However, since PCH3 is just an informal group of people who get together for fun it is generally understood that Mismanagement members and/or Hares for a particular trail may need volunteers (that means YOU) to help out at any given time. In other words, every Hasher needs to pitch in to ensure that a good time is had at all PCH3 events!

Grand Master (GM) – Bob Should Have It Tested
Glorified event planner, babysitter, and drunk herder. The “face” of PCH H3. Announces the Circle Jerk for each trail, responsible for supporting all mismanagement roles, settles disputes over traditions, and various other administrative duties. (S)he is the keeper of the sacred Laws of Hashing and comes up with sufficiently plausible lies to cover any serious questions of propriety of actions within the hash. Gets blamed for everything wrong.
Religious Advisor (RA) – SOS
Typically the Circle Jerk — Leads circle. Can control a mass of 10 to 100 slightly inebriated people, which is not only about being loud (but that helps too) but also about having good energy, charisma, and a sense of humor. Also in charge of blessing the Hash, the Hare and the Beer; and considered to be responsible for the weather. This is THE hasher who has seen the light (Bud light) and can taste in his soul the true spirit of Hashing. The religious advisor spreads the word and inspires the zest and zeal of the hash in all participants. Any hasher found transgressing the spirit of hashing during trail or at circle is disciplined by the RA typically by doing a down-down.
Beer Meister – Open Wide
Possibly the most thankless job in the hash, but the most vital. This person is responsible for bringing beer, LPR, and water EVERY trail or securing a replacement beer meister in the event of an absence.
Haberdasher – Little Red Caboose (supported by Highway Hummer)
This is a person who has a flair for fashion, a head for business (who said head?), and the showmanship of P.T. Barnum. (S)he’s responsible for the design, procurement, warehousing, merchandising, and vending of items of apparel and various trinkets to the hash. Prior flea market or circus midway experience preferred. In charge of collecting Hash Cash, keeping records, and tracks trail attendance for the purpose of awards. Manages the bank account.
Hare Raiser – Cherry *POP*
Wrangles Hares/Hariettes for the purpose of providing the kennel with entertainment in the form of Trails &/or kennel events. Populates information in a timely fashion (no later than the Wednesday prior) on various locations so that wankers of all areas of repute can come join the festivities. (This can include on one or more of the following, but is not limited to; Hash Rego, Facebook, MeetUp, Website, Gmail Calendar, and on the pages of other kennels for special shenanigans. More destructions on Laying Trail can be found on our: Laying Trail Page
Hash Flash – Highway Hummer
Takes photos and does the write-up to chronicle the events and misdeeds of the kennel. The person who captures for posterity all embarrassing hash moments on film. The hash flash must have an acute sense of the absurd to know what to take photos of, and also a small degree of reliability to bring a camera, film, take pictures, have them developed, and put only the finest thereof into the sacred photo album.
Hash Scribe – ___________________
The Hash Scribe (Hash Words, Hash Bard, etc.) does the write-up of each run and provides it to the On-Sec for the Hash Trash. In some cases, the Hash Scribe does the entire Hash Trash, mailing with labels provided by the On-Sec. Other hashes appoint a different Hash Scribe at each hash to write up the run, to provide a different style and viewpoint each week, lightening the load of the On-Sec.
On-Sec – ______________
The On-Sec (pluralized On-Sex) keeps track of roster of hashers (their address/telephone info, number runs and other stats), does a periodic mailout of the Hash Trash (hash newsletter), sends out publicity on the hash and events, and acts as the point of contact with interhash sources and periodicals. Choosing an On-Sec can be more difficult as it is a thankless, time-consuming job that is usually best done by a “volunteer”. Today, candidates who possess a word processor and database capability are more valuable for this position and should be considered.
Song Meister – Deuce N a Quarter
Master of music for down-downs and entertainment. Responsible for supplying circle with songs at a moments notice. This is a hasher with no self-respect. (S)he never lacks for a song suitable to the occasion. His songs are risqué, lewd, and vulgar. The Songmeister speaks with other hashers and hashes to acquire songs to add to the hash hymnal. The mission is to explore new tunes and new celebrations. To boldly go where no Songmeister has gone before (pardon the split infinitive.)
Web Mistress/Meister – Cherry *POP*
Responsible for updating the various websites, maintaining social media presence, keeping kennel events updated (currently: Gmail calendar, MeetUp, Hash Rego, Facebook and PCH3.com), notifying other kennels of the major events, Hare Raiser (keeps track of upcoming hashes and gets ‘volunteers’ to hare based on experience, matching new hares with a more experienced one. Each hasher is expected to set a hash periodically. Trails should change geographical locations regularly to avoid overlapping (crossing) previous trails.), setting up DP’s, etc.
