For those who aren’t clear, what is a hash? Is that where you guys take a bus to the country side and jog around, enjoying the scenery? I noticed from your site that other cities have similar organizations, like a hash network? Am I saying that correctly? hah
Every club has their own culture and approach to hashing. The Chengdu Panda Hash House Harriers always get on a bus and get out of town, yeah. It is a pretty good place to meet like-minded people (those who don’t take life to seriously, place to practice English/Chinese, good place to meet runners/drinking buddies, great place to do networking).
It is really, really ridiculously difficult to explain the hash to someone; my best advice is always to just go and see for yourself!
Email topic notifications is the feature that I’m most excited about adding to the forum, but the problem is one of infrastructure. Unfortunately it’s a limitation of the forum setup that I have – it’s the price I pay for having a forum that’s integrated into the Chengdu Living design. But the good news is that this is functionality that they’re adding very soon.
