In this issue:
Our cover boy this month is dressed to impress at the Cocktown H3’s 1700th Run, in quaint but curious Queensland. Just how many actual queens reside in Queensland is a frequently debated topic in this proud city.

August is a favorite month for runners, hikers and the Hash House Harriers in most parts of Europe, North America, and in several regions around Asia. Our fair weather friends in Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and Siberia may be spending some time huddled up next to the fireplace in the warm winter environs of their favorite pubs. Wherever you are, cuddle up with your favorite refreshment and enjoy the namesake of Caesar Augustus.

USA: August will see Michigan Interhash and the Motown-Ann Arbor 30th Anniversary Celebration, just a short drive on the interstate from Motor City, USA.  Imagine yourself cruisin’ down the highway singing along with Motown’s litany of all-time top tunes.

If you find yourself on the other side of the USA, we highly recommend that you motor over to the Bisbee Red Dress Run, hosted by the Huachuca H3 above the badlands of Arizona. This town was the largest city between San Francisco and Saint Louis in the glorious days when copper was king. If you make it to Bisbee, be sure to show up for a Post Lube the following day in Tombstone AZ, for a few cold drafts, and maybe even a gunfight at the OK Corral. At the end of the month you could always head to USA Nash Hash, hosted by the Omaha H3 in Weeping Water, Nebraska.

CANADA: Go north to ON-ONtario Interhash in Midland, Ontario, where the Royal Canadian Mounties will welcome you with open arms.

EUROPE: Interscandi in Arhus is slated as the best Danish event of the summer. If “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark” it must be a long way from Arhus where the air is sweet as a soft summer breeze across a field of blooming wild flowers.

EUROHASH: Many dedicated hashers traveled from near and far to Eurohash in Vienna, the jewel of the Danube. Read CIA’s undercover report on what really happened there. What could go wrong? What could go right? Read all about it and discover the naked truth. While the truth sometimes stings, we can learn from such experiences.

USA: What was so special about the big Mount Vernon H3 Anniversary Run? Quick Drawers was there to find out and tell all. Parental Guidance is advised.

CARIBBEAN HASH CRUISIN’: Hazukashii leaves beautiful Hawaii to check out the Hash scene in Curacao, St. Maarten, Aruba, and points beyond. As he discovers, among other things, that Curacao is more than a drink.

AFRICA: The illustrious Head Mistress reveals what you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about “Hashing on the Kenya Coast”.  (delete last sentence)

INTERHASH FIJI: The Nadi Hash House Harriers join the local Bula Queens for the Bula Festival. Check out the latest updates on the event venue, hotels and trails.
BREW NEWS: The Micro Brew Revolution is hitting the Philippines like a tropical typhoon. Journey to Palawan Island, and drop in for a tasting tour of Palaweno Brewery.

LUANG PRABANG HALF MARATHON: Run for the children in historic Luang Prabang.

Happy trails,
