May Newsletter

This was also sent out to all attendees via email.  If you did not receive it, please read the registration information and make sure your information is in our system.

Welcome to the May 2017 InterAm Update!  Please monitor our InterAm website (interam.phoenixhhh.org) and FB posts as the event draws ever closer to make sure you are well aware of any updates to the event.  Our mis-management team continues to work diligently to make sure that the 2017 InterAm event is enjoyable to everyone that registered.

SELLING YOUR REGISTRATION?

If you are selling your rego, you’re silly, but hey, it’s all right, we still love you. Don’t you dare charge any other person in our hashing community even 69 cents over what you paid for it. To recap, everyone paid $199 for their rego. Sell it for that. Or less. If you don’t, you’re a jerk, and people will shame you. G sees all and hashers certainly can’t keep their mouth shut for any number of reasons. Work out payment between yourselves, and when you and the buyer have shaken hands on it, given handies over it, whatever, go into hashingtickets.com and go through the transfer registration process. Done.

We are monitoring our FB InterAm group and listening to hashers who have complained to make sure no one is selling their registration for more than the face value ($199)  We will stop this abuse by refunding the original amount and removing the offending hasher from InterAm.  Selling your InterAm registration for more than you paid is a dick move, don’t do it.

This decision was based on some un-hash-like behavior.  Please be good hashers.  Thanks.

FAQ: http://www.phoenixhhh.com/details/faq/#registration

UPDATE YOUR REGISTRATION INFO

Is your ticket information up to date and accurate? Better check to make sure! Why is it important?

  • You’ll need a legal ID to check in, and if your nerd name is still showing as “Busted Colostomy Bag,” you’re not going to get in!

  • We are getting ready to negotiate meals, and if you don’t like bacon… wait. Everyone loves bacon, right? Seriously, though. We want to ensure that everyone gets the kind of food they love to eat. Make sure your food preference is correct!

  • What if there are personalized gimmees? You don’t want your hash name to show as “Dudley Does Dookie” instead of “Dudley Does Debbie!”

  • Why spell out your kennel name? Because LBH3 stands for Lost Boobs H3, as well as Long Beach H3. H4 can be Houston H3, Hobart H3, or Hangover H3. Please be kind to our statistical nerds!

How do you check your ticket to make sure it’s accurate? Simple! Click the “Modify My Ticket” link in your Registration Success email! Didn’t think that email was important enough to save? No problem! Go to HashingTickets.com, click the “Manage My Purchased Tickets” at the top of the page, enter the requested information, and you’ll receive a new email!

IMPORTANT! Admittedly, it’s rather tedious, but if you want your updated information saved, you’re gonna have to do it.

  • Nerd name, address and phone number updated? Make sure you click the “Update” button beneath that section.

  • Food choice, Hash Name, Kennel, or Shirt Size updated? Make sure you click the save button after each answer. Yes, there’s one save button for each question. Just do it!

BAZAAR UPDATES

CALLING ALL HABERDASHERS!

Phoenix HHH welcomes you to sell your hash goods at the Phoenix InterAm 2017 Bazaar!

By signing up for our Bazaar, you will be provided with an indoor table and chairs to sell your wares to around 2000 attendees, right by InterAm check-in. Yay, air conditioning!

The Bazaar will be open Friday during registration, Saturday, and Sunday. Exact hours are yet to be determined. The room will be locked outside of our business hours.

We do not charge a vendor fee, but ask each participating vendor to donate a fun item to our hashpitality prize package. What kind of item? That’s up to you! (I love shirts, socks, hats, vessels, jewelry, puppies, and all-inclusive trips to Paris, but that’s just me.)

Spot reservations are due no later than August 31! Send your contact information to Jugs Juicy, the Bazaar’s benevolent dictator using the Bazaar form at:

March Update!

Welcome to the March 2017 InterAm Update.  As the event nears we will be sending out email blasts (done) / site updates (this one) and FB posts (done) directing attendees to the InterAm website (you’re on it!) as often as necessary (once a month?) to make sure you are all aware of any updates to the event.  Our mis-management team has been working diligently to make sure the 2017 InterAm Event is enjoyable for all attendees.

UPDATE YOUR REGISTRATION INFO! (Please)

We are sending this email with a request that you review your personal information as listed below on your Phoenix InterAm 2017 registration at HashingTickets.com.  We want to ensure a smooth check-in (photo ID will be required, so make sure your nerd name is your nerd name), that everyone gets to eat the things they like, and receives a shirt that will actually fit them.

In addition, because we are statistical nerds and want to publish all the cool things in the official Magazine, we’re also asking that you fully spell out your Hash Kennel name.  As an example, LBH3 stands for Lost Boobs H3, as well as Long Beach H3, so that can be confusing.  H4 can be Houston H3, Hobart H3, or Hangover H3.  Give us the whole thing!

Please contact Bitch ‘N Hoe at interamRegistration@phoenixhhh.org with any questions. On-Thanks-On!”

We are all waiting for this glorious event to happen, but it’s still 8 months away.

Do you need a little something to wet your whistle? Hold onto your hats Bimbos and Wankers!

We’d like to announce the 7 amazing groups that will be hosting Kennel Hashpitality Suites during the Phoenix InterAm. They will “woo”  you with free drinks and general debauchery that will surely rock your shiggy socks off(!)

In no particular order:

  • DC Road Whores/H5 Shitshow – Come get shitty with the East Coast clusterfuck. They unite as one to remind us that Phoenix Interam 2017 sucks!
  • Lunar H3 – Take a trip to the moon with the assurance that Just Mark Zuckerberg never purchased a rego!
  • San Diego Area Kennels -They are working together to combine So Cal blenders. Always blame Grassy Ass for the shenanigans while simultaneously calling “not it!”
  • LARP H3/NEVER LEAVE CAMP – TNT has two nice tits, and that’s all one needs to know.
  • Black Rock City H3 – Leave the dust at home, but if you are missing the Playa, this is where you’ll want to be. Don’t set anything on fire, no matter what the man tells ya.
  • Madison H3 – After a long drive across the country with a U-haul full of local goodness, Wisconsin will be ready to parrrtttaaayy.
  • Big Hump H3 – They had us at BIG HUMP! 5 St. Louis, MO kennels will team up to bring the Midwest over to the wild wild west to show us why they used five, count’em FIVE exclamations points in their proposal!!!!!

InterAm 2017 Transportation Announcement!!!

96.9% of Saturday and Sunday’s trails will be bussed using full size charter buses supplied by AZ Corporate Coach! They include bathrooms on board, overhead storage similar to an airplane, and most have DVD players. Don’t worry, they are familiar with busing church groups, and we’ve been assured the acoustics for singing are ideal ;).

Huge shout out and thank you to Sweaty Nipples, Surprise! for negotiating our bus contract and volunteering to lead our Transportation Committee! Also to those that assisted in making all of this happen. May your life be blessed with lots of road head(!) and few traffic infractions. Honor!

InterAm 2017 New Year Raffle Announcement!!!

We knew that the 2017 InterAmericas Hash in Phoenix would be popular, but were surprised at the speed by which the registrations and hotel rooms sold out!

All proceeds will go into the general InterAm fund to support the purchase of more beer!!!!! There is no profit at InterAm.  Any funds remaining go to the next InterAm.

Way back when we “won” the “opportunity” to host this event in Phoenix, we held a few registrations back in case it sold out too quickly for the organizers to buy their own… and it sold out really fucking fast… and now that the dust has settled, we are raffling off 2 pairs of 2 registrations for the 2017 InterAm event in October 2017. We will only be selling a maximum of 100 raffle tickets so you have a great chance of winning. *This was the fairest way we could come up with to try and get registrations out to those wanting to attend – and at $20 it’s not a bad deal.

Visit the link below to find out more information and to purchase your raffle tickets! Good luck!

On-On!

$15 Fee will be reversed

15dollars

Bimbos and wankers, cheapskates and half-minds of all kinds!

The Hilton Pointe Squaw Peak $15 fee for extra people in booked rooms is being removed! They will have to manually make the changes so it might take some time but it will be done. Please be patient and kind to our hash hotel.

Now, real problems, do you buy a 30 pack of Natural Ice with this surprise $15 windfall or 15 32oz gas station Diet Coke’s which would leave you with change to drop into that little plastic box going to some nearby charity. Do the right thing!

Love,
Your InterAm Team

Hotel Booking code sent! Here’s some additional info.

A few minutes before midnight, we queued up the hotel booking email and began sending it to the entire InterAm mailing list. In no particular order, we sent the booking info to all 1800+ addresses. Despite spending the last few days going through the email addresses we have by hand to verify that they were right, we received 21 bounce backs (We are assuming people typo’d their email address during registration or something more technical) It’s not perfect, but it means almost everyone was on even footing to get a room. As of 30 minutes after midnight, all of the casitas are sold, and over 425 of 500+ rooms are gone.

Important Info:

  • If you are booking online, click the link in the email. You don’t need to use the code if you are booking online.  Go to “attendee” and you don’t have to input the code.
  • The system only lets you reserve one casita at a time. Yeah you have to go through checkout for each of them. (sold out)

A Really Important Note About Hotel Booking

We’ve had a few people ask if they or their husband/boyfriend/both could stay at the hotel if they were not registered for the event. Here’s the deal (and we think it’s pretty fucking fantastic):

InterAm 2017 is taking over the entire resort; every room, every casita. The resort will be the central hub for the entire event. Our contract with the hotel let us reserve the entire water park all weekend for just us, some of the hotel bars will be serving our free beer, the open areas will be used for serving food and we are completely taking over the conference rooms. The resort is Inter Americas 2017.

Because of this, we want to be very clear so there are not any misunderstandings or hurt feelings down the road. If you do not have a rego for InterAm you will not be allowed at the hotel. This includes:

  • Reserving a hotel room and just hanging out.
  • Partying in your kennel’s casita and not doing trails.
  • Stopping by to say “hi”.
  • Popping in for a quickie.

Please don’t make us be the bad guy and ask you to leave. Because we will, and that’s no fun for any of us.

Please direct any complaints about this policy to:
Rumson Hash House Harriers Facebook Page

Having said all that….we have decided to send the booking code out directly to registered InterAm participants only. This will still be done at 12:00am on October 21st Arizona Time as stated before. If you book a room and then can’t make InterAm you can sell your rego and transfer your hotel room to the person you sold your rego to. Or cancel and they can get the code from us and book directly with the hotel. Whatever you prefer.

Click here to Google the current time in AZ. We don’t do Daylight Savings Time because we’re not farmers.

Sincerely,
Phoenix InterAm Team

October 21st for Booking Date!!!

Wankers and bimbos! The time has cum to officially announce the hotel booking date. Due to official hotel mumbo jumbo, the hotel reservation ‘live’ booking date has been bumped back to October 21st.

Joe Hasher: “How does this impact my chances on booking my room at this amazing resort?”

It doesn’t! The beauty of us having the entire resort is that NOBODY can book rooms until this date!  Plus, this gives you more time to decide who you’re going to room with.

Jane Bimbo: “I’m traveling from a land far, far away. How will I know when the rooms can be booked when I’m in another time zone?”

The booking code, which must be used to book a room during our event, will be available in in only one place:  sent out via email to registered attendees. This will all happen at 12:00 am (Arizona time) on October 21st. So for those of you that are going to ask, that’s really late Thursday night/really early Friday morning….however you want to classify it.

Initially, we were going to post the booking info here and on Facebook, but we believe that registered attendees should get first crack at reserving a room, so we are going to do this only by email.

Big Daddy G: “Clearly CUNT doesn’t know who I am. I’m the original hash daddy. Hell, I starred in their reveal video! Surely they’ll make an exception for me. I’m just going to call the hotel direct and book next week. What’s the worst that can happen?”

The poor hotel employee will be very confused and tell you that no such group exists. They don’t have any info on our group yet, so please don’t call. We don’t want to make them angry before we even get there!

You will be able to book online or call to make your reservations which will come in handy as we have some international hashers joining us. Again, the booking code will be announced at 12:00 am on October 21st.

On-On!
CUNT
