Hash Cash: This is a non-profit organization. All
back on the hash.
Hash Cash Expenditures:
Beer, bottled water, ice and snacks are obvious expenses. Hash cash is also
authorized to be spent on soda,
coolers, beer coolers, kegerators, cups, koozies, administrative supplies, trash
cans, trash bags, bug spray, safety equipment, first aid kits, icons,
haberdashery, etc and just about any other items, or expenditures that support
the hash. However, YOU MUST GET PRE-APPROVAL FROM THE GM BEFORE DEDUCTING
YOUR EXPENSE, unless its trivial.
Hash Cash Donations (Regular Hashes):
donation amounts for regular hashes are $7 for beer drinkers and $4 for
non-beer drinkers from each participant (non-hares), or at least $1 even if you consume absolutely nothing
and you want to be a total nerd ($1 goes towards awards & overhead).
If you do not donate at least $1, then you will not get credit for the trail
on the JRH3 Multiples List
and you will not get awards (headband, bandanas, hare tags, etc), or be
recognized for any achievements (FRB, FBI, brainless awards, beer truck
driver, cook, hash flash, etc).
However, you must actually do some portion of trail, even if it is just a
token trail around the parking lot to get credit for doing trail. Driving the beer truck and any other
official functions to support the hash also counts as doing trail as long as
you make at least the minimum donation of $1. Just riding in the beer truck
does not count towards multiple unless the beer truck driver specifically needs you to
Up to 3
hares do not need to donate the "standard donation" when they set trail
(REGULAR EVENTS ONLY).
However, they will be expected to donate the "extra amount" for special events,
or when food is furnished at an additional charge. In addition, the hares are
expected to pay for their own marking materials. If there are more than 3
hares, then each additional hare(s) is expected to contribute the normal donation
amount (or all the hares can divide the cost evenly). In order to be a hare you must actually
"lay trail". Just acting as a beer
truck driver, scouting, or sweeping does not make you a hare. One hare
needs to be identified as the "lead hare" that is overall in charge of the trail
and for coordinating with the GM, or his/her authorized representative like the
Major Event Extras:
Add approximately $1 for toe tags, $1 for shots, $4 for patches
and about $10 - $15 for T-shirts,
etc. When beer stops are at bars, add the approximate cost of 1 beer
(hopefully a glass of beer poured from a pitcher), normally about $2 per bar.
When the only beer stop is in a bar, there is usually no additional charge for
added on as long as the beer at a reasonable cost. When food is provided, some
additional math may be required and the amount should be added to the hash cash
Local two timers (2nd time attending a JRH3
hash) are FREE, if
they return within 10 days (REGULAR HASHES ONLY). This does not apply to ou-of-town
visitors unless you will be here for several months.
IOU's are heavily frowned upon. Banks don't serve beer and the hash doesn't do loans. If
you forget to bring cash, go
borrow it from another hasher and pay them back. Or, go to an ATM, write us a
check, or offer some sort of collateral. We've lost too many dollars and
ultimately hashers in the past over unpaid IOUs. So don't even ask.
