Meet at the Crowne Plaza Hotel lobby at 2.00pm. QDH3 leaders will meet you there. Arrive at Crowne by 2.10pm at the latest!!! Then we'll catch a bus to the Hash Start Point about 30 minutes away. Please don't be late!

Dinner: The Lead Hare has arranged for a delicious Chinese dinner in a local restaurant for those who wish to stay for dinner. Usually most people do. This is a separate cost, usually only about 40 - 60rmb per person.

4. Hash #471 Re-Hash Report 上次Hash报告 - The Scenic Parks Hash

Hi Folks. This was another (great) QDH3 Hash event! 471 Hares

On Sat, 20 Feb, we held the first Hash of the Chinese New Year. The Lead Hare was Whore's Whisperer (Philip) with Co-Hare "Just Edwin". They had a really nice trail planned. And, they spent the morning setting the trail. Good work guys!!!

UNFORTUNATELY (!!!), there was just 1 Hasher along for this holiday Hash gathering. Well done to Just "Jason" on making it to the start point. There was also a first time Hasher who wanted to join, but she didn't meet with Jason due to some miscommunication. Next time!

Anyway, due to the low number of Hashers, they all decided just to do some sight-seeing instead. So they visited the YuanXiao Festival markets at TangQiuHui (糖球会).

In spite of being "just a stroll", we all think that this might have been the BEST HASH EVER!!! ;)

Don't miss the next one!

To make up for the lack of QDH3 pictues this week, I have included some photos the adventures of other QDH3 Hashers.

The Bomb (Maggie) has been doing some Hashing in Shanghai recently. Can you see her in her QDH3 green jacket? :)

And, three QDH3 Hashers had a get together on Bali Island in Indonesia too. Just "Joey" joined honeymooners Just "Eva" and Loose Pussy (David). on the beach.

It looks really nice there! But, I'm sure they really had no fun at all and they just wished they could be back in Qingdao with all of us... ;)

See you on Sat, 27 Feb, for the next Hash!!! It will be a great trail in the JuLin Forest Park and ZhongShan Park areas and maybe a bit in the Badaguan area too. Don't miss it!!! :)

On! On!

  • Hello Qingdao Hashers! 青岛Hashers大家好!event logo

    Tell your friends! Tell your classmates! Tell your coworkers! Tell everyone!

    Want to see what it's all about? Of course you do!!!   :)

    Here's a great video of the 2013 QDH3 Crowne Plaza Hotel Charity Staircase Run-Up event.

    Hey Hashers! After a misstep (Haha!) last year, the date has been set for the 7th Annual Qingdao Hash House Harriers Staircase Run-up Charity Fund-raising event in association with the Crowne Plaza Hotel Qingdao. The next staircase race will be held on Saturday, 5 March 2016. 


    To register: Send us an email with your name and a contact phone number plus an emergency contact number of a family member or friend.

    When you register, you certify that you are in good health and that you
    acknowledge that you bear full responsibility for your safety before, during and after the event.

    Mark your calendars and start exercising your thighs to get ready for this fun and challenging 41-floor staircase climbing race from the hotel basement all the way up to the top floor! Come and join the fun in March 2016! :)  

    All the money that is raised this year will be donated to a local charity group called I-Foundation Of Qingdao General Charity Institution (青岛市慈善总会爱基金). 

    This group's activities are run mostly by Chinese volunteers and is recognized by the local government. They have various projects to help children with autism and their families and also poor children and their families in Qingdao and even Shandong and we can be sure that our donation will be used where it is needed the most. 

    More information about the charity group can be found at http://wapbaike.baidu.com/item/青岛市慈善总会爱基金 (Chinese only).  It is a group that deserves more support.

    If you would like to discuss sponsoring a prize or making a donation for this popular community fun run and charity fund-raising event then please contact the QDH3 at:

    6. Hash song(s) of the week 新Hash歌曲

    Hash Songs to Learn – IMPORTANT!!!

    It's all in good fun, but many Hash songs contain ribald/bawdy/vulgar language and suggestive lyrics and taboo and politically incorrect topics. Be warned before reading (and singing) of your own choice.  ;)

    Can I have a note? Mi Mi Mi Mi Miiiii Yu Yu Yu Yu Yuuuuu

    1. Lady Hardonna
    [Tune of " Lady Madonna " by the Beatles] - Sung for female Hashers.

    Lady Hardonna, men at your feet,
    Wonder how you manage to beat their meat.
    You find the money, when you need to pay the rent,
    You know that money isn't heaven sent.
    Friday's guy arrives without a suitcase,
    Sunday's Hasher creeps in like a bum,
    Monday's guy likes to be tied with his boot lace,
    See how they'll come.

    In future, I'll put one or two songs here in each QDH3 Newsletter, so we can learn more great Hashing songs!  :)

    In case you want to know if I'm a song-writing genius... NO!!!  I plagiarised all of these from other Hash groups...   ;)

    7. Receding Hareline 未来的Hash活动表 - A list of future Hashes and Hares - Wanna be a Hare 怎么当兔子?  :)


    The Hares
    If you would like to be a Lead Hare (主任兔子 - plan a Hash trail about 2 weeks before the Hash) or a Co-Hare (帮手兔子 - help carry flour and set the Hash trail on the day of the Hash), then let the Hare Razor (me, aka Sweet FA) know and we'll work out a date for you to set a trail. If you are flexible with your date, then that's even better.

    新兔子学习当Hash兔子不是很难。只要两三次志愿当帮手兔子支持主任兔子。当天的兔子免费参加我们的Hash活动 (不包括晚餐)。

    Remember, Hares Hash for FREE!!!  Yay!!!  (
    The Bash dinner is still extra though...)    ;)

    Setting trails is fun and you get a great feeling leading all the Hashers for an enjoyable Hash run or walk. See the Hare's Hash Trail Basics Guide here.

    For new Hares, it might look a bit complicated, but it's really not hard at all.  :)  Just volunteer  to Co-Hare with an experienced Lead Hare one or two or three times and then you'll be able to do the Lead Hare job easily in future too!
