For info on how to make a tutu,
are 2 costs associated
with the "hash" cruise. There's the
hash registration (rego) fee
that is paid to the JRH3 and then there's the
cruise cost that is paid to
our designated travel agent and cruise line. To view the cost chart,
scroll down near the bottom of this site.
The hash rego fee pays for
6 hash trails (2
on board ship and 4 at the destinations), down down beer, pirate booty (gimmies) and
the prizes for the hash challenges, hash games and other
miscellaneous expenses. However, you may need to provide some of your own beer
during some of the hashes to defray the cost. The hash rego
fee starts at $99, but will go up in price on Apr 1st to
$109 and will continue to go up in price by $10 per month on
the 1st day of each month thereafter until we sail.
Register online at

through Venmo, through your bank's bill
pay system, or by check or money order. Make your payment payable to
