AGM: anally in May, beginning of the RH3 Hash Year.
Any turnover of MM positions is decided/voted prior to AGM. Hash Cash subsidizes the food, beer and giveaway. Anally a behind-the-GM's-back discussion of what personalized gift RH3 will buy for this half-mind. A block of ice* is purchased for Circle down-down sitting. As the GM turns over Circle to the incumming GM, the outgoing GM is invited to sit upon his/her ice throne as each attendee cums to shake hands/rub booty with GM and give extended words of thanks. RA announces weiners of various award categories at AGM (voting takes place prior to the event):
- best hash - from arrival to end
- best trail - most fun from after Father Abraham, before closing Circle
- best shiggy - which trail sucked your shoes off the hardest and/or cut you up the most
- best beer check - good beer, food or location
- best on-after - which gathering made you feel all warm and cozy inside
- other typical categories: best new hash name, best outfit/costume, smelliest/loudest body function, best themed hash, best story from the hash, best circle, etc.
City Ice is where we usually get our half block of ice (80lbs). We have to reserve it in advance as they have to cut a 160lb slab in half for us. 13600 Permilla Springs Dr, Chester, VA 23836 (804)796-9423
Medley of Mud: series of three shiggy & muddy trails during the summer
I-Feel Tower created this monster in 2003. Three of the shiggiest trails RH3 has to offer. Visitors are given the dates at the beginning of the summer. In the past, a special piece of Medley of Mud Haberdashery was available at a discounted price for anyone who completed all three trails. The item would be available to all others at cost price.

Jingle Balls: December trail and party with Fort Eustis H3
Event discontinued during the recession, both kennels dwindled to low numbers. Event would switch from RH3 to FEH3 from year to year. Always included trail, bringing a donation for Toys for Tots, and a white elephant gift for the exchange during the on-after, sitting on "Santa's" lap.
Holiday Tacky Lights Trail: anally in December
All trail collected monies ($5/hasher) is matched by Hash Cash and a donation is made to the Central VA Food Bank. Many of the houses on display have a CVFB donation box.
Green Dress Run: anally in March
Comatoes and Phantom Pooftah brought this tradition to RH3 in 2001. There are 7 beverage stops with two live hares. One hare has a pot of gold (something tasty) and the other carries leprechaun piss. Some years it is a huge event w/a rego, a venue and hotel rooms reserved, other years it is less advertised. Many times we host it the same weekend as Tidewater's GDR/Shamrock Marathon to keep things manageable.
