On July 28, 2002 “Nuthin’ But Net” and “Crying Game” started an alternative kennel to the established Pike’s PeakH4, drawing on more of the Korean kennels traditions of longer circles and more drinking games.
The kennel had a rough time existing after 9-11, as most of the hounds were active military.
The kennel survived and has continued to the present.
There have been 3 occasions when Kimchi and Pike’s Peak have combined hares; a combined green dress/Shamerock, Halloween, and combined Red Dress with additional help from Humpin’ 69 kennel.
Pikes Peak H4
Once upon a time, back in the Summer of `88, one Ed “Surelee” Hazelwood invaded Colorado Springs from the land of the Atlanta Barbarians. Shortly thereafter, he spent an afternoon plying two locals, one Peter Munding, and one Bill Slaughter, with beer and bullshit at the Navajo Hogan. His silver tongue soon convinced these innocent lads to help him start a local group of the infamous Hash House Harriers. Indeed, these fine young athletes laid the inaugural P2H4 hash, hosting supporters from Atlanta, Denver, and Boulder. Peter was exposed and anointed “Peter Cock n' Tell”, and old Bill never showed up again. Thus my friends, the legend began and the Hashes followed, one by one...
Sometime in 2011, Reach Around Hound and Twatzilla were bored on a Wednesday night and decided to meet a bunch of other Half-Minds for a pick up trail. Then 6969 Humping Hash was born. It's been touch an go since then but the kennel has not completely died out and is known for hashing all year, in all weather, on a 100% live trail.
DIM (DaMN, IT'S MONDAY)
For the uninitiated: the DIM Hash was created in 1999 by P2H4's Crack Climber, who one night caught himself thinking, "Damn, It's Monday. There's no football. What else is there to do?" Thus was a new Hash born, as a summertime venue for the die-hards in need of an extra shiggy fix. The DIM hibernates each winter and is revived annually during the months of Daylight Savings Time to hash every other Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. Its trails have traditionally been on the longer and more challenging scale of typical P2H4 hashes; but this is not a "Rule" and as always it depends upon the hare.
Virgins and veterans alike are cordially invited to enjoy the summer season of twilight hashing and Tuesday morning hangovers. Virgin hares are welcome to sign up, at their own peril, and will be paired with a locally experienced co-hare for their first timeout.
