No, not the drinking kind but rather the attitude kind.
Hashing allows you to leave your everyday life behind for a few hours of fun, laughter and frivolity with a group of like-minded people.
Each hash group will have its own individual identity with some having a greater or lesser emphasis on the physical activity side, all is in good fun and this "Drinking club with a running problem" welcomes everyone with a sense of humour.
Hashing has created a kinship that knows no geographical bounds. You will be as welcome at one group as you will at any other.
