What is Mismanagement?
- Keeping everyone appropriately misinformed!
- Other stuff. Mostly drinking
What kind of super-duper positions are there?
The kennel is led (or misled) by the Grand Master or Grand Mattress (aka GM), in line with the general tradition of minimum organization. However, this is a facade, as there is indeed much that has to be organized when it comes to reining in chaos and planning special drinking events. A successful GM makes these chores seem transparent to the pack, but it is much work nevertheless. The GM calls periodic meetings and bails the hash out of trouble at times
Trail itself is marked by different volunteer hares each hash. The Hare Raiser keeps track of upcoming hashes and gets ‘volunteers’ to hare based on experience, matching new hares with a more experienced one (maybe).
The RA is the arbiter of hash tradition and master/mistress of ceremonies at the on-in. When in the circle, the RA is always right, even when wrong. Other than presiding over the circle, the RA is responsible to ensure that deserving thirsts are quenched; they are fully responsible for the weather and the taste of the beer.
The individual who tracks hash funds is known as the Hash Cash. The Hash Cash collects the fees and provides reimbursement for the food or refreshments used at the hash. Hash Cash is responsible for protecting the Hash’s asses and general accounting of the funds.
The Hash Scribe does the write-up of each r*n and disseminates said Hash Trash. There are several good reasons to become scribe. The most important is that you get to write down anything dumb and stupid that your fellow hashers have done on trail, while avoiding writing about all the dumb and stupid things you have done on trail. It’s really quite easy, all we ask is a couple write ups every once in a while and we will be happy.
Does web stuff.
A very enjoyable position in which you get to take pictures throughout all of the trails and on after’s to show how much fun we are having and the craziness that we get into. Afterwards you then get the pleasure of playing the hash appropriate game of “Where’s the penis in the picture?”
The person who takes on this position is responsible for making sure that all of the Humpers are well planned out early in the year and then be ready to throw that plan out when other trails happen to decide that they will start there right before you planned to go there. All that is required after that is to make sure you bring flour, chalk, and some straws to each humper along with your drinking pants.
These are the people who have been in Mismanagement before and are always willing to step in and take on any of the positions that need help. As a joint master your responsibility is to make sure the hash doesn’t do anything incredibly stupid and provide insight and guidance to the members of mismanagement when they need to be kept in line.
