Bid#1 - Hashes of Scotland

 As some of you may have heard on the grapevine, a bid for Eurohash 2019 will be put forward from the hashes of Scotland, led by the founder of the Shetland Simmer Dim Hash, Cockatool.

The proposal is to charter a cruise liner for around 800 to 1000 people and travel the northern isles of Scotland. It will depart from the Port of Leith in Edinburgh, where the pre-event red dress run will be held. Upon boarding the ship, after a night of partying on board, it will arrive in the Orkney isles, formally home of the British Grand Fleet, but now home to two award-winning breweries, two award-winning whisky distilleries, one gin distillery and the UK’s most northerly winery! After undertaking one of the many runs on the island, you’ll be able to spend some free time on the island before boarding the ship for the next leg of the journey. After another night of partying on-board, you will arrive on the island of Shetland, home of Britain’s most northerly breweries and Gin distillery as well as the infamous ponies and the home of the Shetland Simmer Dim hash. Once again a variety of runs/walks/black nose cab trails will be set, in places such as the white stane of Willies, Pund of Gruntin or Twatt! Based on cost and timing, the ship may then sail to the Faeroe isles or will sail to its final port of call, Aberdeen. The final series of trails will be laid around the county of Aberdeenshire, where the weekend will be closed.

The intention is that this will occur on the weekend of the 16 to 19 August, which is the weekend prior to UK Nash Hash, pencilled in to be held in the Scottish borders, allowing both events to be undertaken as part of the same itinerary. It will be an all-inclusive event, with a registration fee of about £150pp to cover the costs of food, beer, transport, items, etc whilst not on-board the ship. In addition, there will be an additional cost to cover the cost of chartering the cruise liner which will be based on the level of accommodation chosen. Accurate costing for this are still being put together, but will be in place prior to the bid being put forward. Initial figures suggest a cost range of ca.£300pp for a an inner 4 berth cabin, to ca.£1200pp for the presidential suite, with the average cost being about ca.£500pp for an outer cabin. Room selection will be based on a first come first served basis with room selection being made online in 2018. The event has had over 3 years of planning prior to this proposal and as such is confident enough to be able to go live and take registrations at the Eurohash Vienna event, if it is successfully awarded the 2019 event.

Note of EuroHash2017-Webmaster:
Please be aware that August 2019 will be after the Brexit has taken place! No more Visa-free travel for Europeans!

Bid#2 - Mijas H3, Spain

Welcome to Sunny Spain, the home of the Mijas Hash House Harriers.
We would like to invite you to come Down Down Down to the Costa Del Sol, for a week of Beer, Sun, Sea, Sangria and Sex for some !
It also just happens to be our 30th Anniversary in May 2019 and this is when we propose to hold Eurohash 2019. The main event is the weekend of the 17th to the 19th May 2019. The Idea is to have a quality event which will run pretty much in the same way as our 1000th run in 2007 which was a tremendous success.
For those wanting to see more of this amazing part of Spain, Pre and Post lubes will be available and will be advertised at a later date. To whet the appetite, In and around the coast, from Malaga, as far as Gibraltar and beyond, with the help of our neighbouring hash chapters, including our well known Red Dress Run, our Gibraltar Run, the Famous Caminito del Rey, and Running of the Bulls in Cadiz.
We have already spoken with some of our main Hotels in Fuengirola, they will be giving us excellent deals, and again we will be giving you the option to stay for as long as you like. A weekend is never enough in Mijas!
We will be offering a range of runs to suit everyone, from the ballbreakers to the snail trail and everything in between. With rivers still flowing from the winter rain, the spring flowers out, it is without doubt the best time to visit the Costa del Sol.
So come on down, with flights from all over Europe to Malaga it makes for an easy trip.
Registration starts at €130 for the first 100 registered Eurohashers, then €150 for the next 100 €180 for the next 100 and €200 for any late comers this is excluding hotels.  If our bid is successful we will be taking registrations at the Eurohash Vienna event, no cash required.
So come to Mijas Por Favor
ON ON ON OLE !!!

Note of EuroHash2017-Webmaster:
It looks like Spain will still be part of the European Union by May 2019. But you never know, maybe you will need a visa travelling through Catalonia! The Brexit may also lead to Gibraltar asking for a Visa (just in case you intend to go to the Gibraltar Run).
