Hash History
This is the original run site of POSHHH Run #2 set way back in 1984. [Run #1 was set in Caura]

Over time most of our pristine nature reserves have been laid waste to illegal dumping, littering and general neglect by our citizenry. You will be witness to this in several areas of the run. Let us set ourselves the exception rather than the norm! We ask you walk with a small garbage bag and pick up whatever garbage you may come across, either on parts of the run or in your immediate recreational area. Garbage Segregation Protocol would be in place for this run [again something that the hash leadership seems to have dropped on the wayside]. Limit your non-recyclable waste.

On On Arena Forest!!
