Blooming Fools Hash House Harriers, a.k.a. BFH3
BHF3 is a hash club (for adults 21 and over) based in Bloomington, Indiana, hashing every other Saturday at 4 p.m. in the summer, 3 p.m. in the winter. Join us for a 3 to 5 mile noncompetitive trail through the worst terrain we can find–runners and walkers invited. Fool moon hashing is about 2 to 4 miles, usually starting at 7:00 PM. $7 gets you a trail and post-trail ritual and party.
Be Prepared For…
Trail: A good trail is “shiggy.” Shiggy is an obstacle you encounter on trail, and at BFH3 it usually comes in the form of hills, mud, brush, water crossings, & wildlife sightings for rural hashes, and weed-and litter-strewn alleys, abandoned lots, sculptures, playgrounds, and tunnels for urban hashes.
What to expect on a hash: beer, flour, a shiggy trail, hash names, funny (and often bawdy) songs, knee socks, kilts, happi coats, beer
What should you bring: a sense of humor, thirst, an open mind, OLD shoes, leg protection (socks, pants), a reusable vessel for your drink, $7 if you’ve hashed before
