We are almost there to the start of Interhash 2018 and like to let all hashers know of the following:

I’m sure you would have followed the news that we had 2 natural disasters within a space of 9 days (back to back) , first was cyclone Josie followed by Cyclone Keni, both of whom affected several parts of Fiji, including Nadi, Lautoka and other western regions

This was a temporary setback for our Hash team in setting up the runs etc but we still have the time. We are almost out of the cyclone season and hopefully drier and cooler days/nights will start settling in

End of May is a super time for hashing and that’s why we chose those dates. Everyone is working overtime to restore infrastructure damaged and I can confidently say that given another week or two we’ll be back on track, even stronger

None of the hotels and resorts suffered any major damages and all the tourist attractions are intact.

My committee is working full time with all the stakeholders to ensure that we live up to the promise made – the best ever Interhash. It’s the 21st Anniversary that you’ll no doubt enjoy to the fullest, from the time of arrival to departure

Paradise Beverages is one of the major sponsors who are the brewers of Fiji Bitter and Fiji Gold apart from many other drinks.

Prouds Duty Free

We have also secured other sponsors one of whom is one of the leading Duty Free outlets in Fiji. Prouds Duty Free will offer you special discounts on arrival and departure as well as from all their outlets in town and all the major resorts and hotels. All you have to do is to tell them know  you are part of Interhash 2018

Welcome on arrival

We’ll welcome you at the airport on arrival as you walk out of customs and help you to your hotels some of whom have courtesy buses. Taxis are relatively cheap and most distances travelled will cost approx. US$5.00-10.00

Of course we’ll have courtesy buses from hotels to the main venue ie Prince Charles Park and return for all the 4 days which includes the RDR. Buses will have special labels to be easily identified

Red Dress Run

RDR has attracted just over 400 so far and we can still accept few more. We’ll leave for Lautoka City for the RDR a bit earlier by 12 noon from Prince Charles Park since we are being hosted by Lautoka City Council for refreshments (light lunch) at the famous and only Botanical Garden in the Western Division. So 1-2pm will be lunch and tour of the gardens before we leave for the start of the RDR at approx. 2.15pm. It’s an easy track of approx.8km meandering through many of the historical sites of Lautoka so you see them all in this memorable event

Friday is a free day but several chapters are organizing special events namely Hamersley Hash from Mercure Hotel and a ladies only lunch excursion at Sofitel Resort. The opening program mind you starts at 5pm with a spectacular performance by Skydive Fiji. You have to be at the venue by that time. Fiji’s Prime Minister will be the Chief Guest of Honor

Interhash Souvenir Magazine

If anyone has some outstanding photos to be included, shoot them across to us. The magazine as usual will have all the details of Interhash 2018, run sites to choose from etc etc

Hash Acts

You are welcome to perform on stage on 26th or  27th so let us know if you wish to do so

Down Down Competition

This will be on Sat 26th so get prepared and let us know if you are keen to challenge for the trophy

 

On on and see you all soon

Dr Raju, Executive Chairman

Preparations are well underway for the best ever Interhash and as this is the 21st Anniversary we are putting in extra efforts to make it more special

The photo shows members of Nadi Hash ready to set out for yet another trail and one of the best trails in an area ka Momi which has historical background – World War II gun sights and a museum close to the start and finish that members will be able to look at before or after the run

All the runs (10 so far) will have short, medium and long trails plus the ball breaker and old farts on Saturday 26th May

There’s only one Ball Breaker Run and that will be on Sat 26th May and we have just over 100 registered for that. You’ll get to read the run description plus the map in due course suffice to add here that it will be the most picturesque territory ever

A press conference was held last week with our major sponsors in Lautoka City, the venue for the Red Dress Run

The major sponsor is Paradise beverages, suppliers of beers – Fiji Gold and Fiji Bitter

Red Dress Run is now more than350 that is will also be the best ever in the 2nd  largest city of Lautoka. This is a historical Sugar City where Sugar was the backbone of Fiji’s economy for about a century. Hashers will have the chance to tour many historical sights as part of the Red Dress Run

Run route takes hashers through historical areas, a distance of approx. 8 km and the venue remains Lautoka Club who are all excited to welcome all the hashers

Entertainment will be at it’s very best with live bands, DJ and traditional island dance groups for all other days

Fiji’s Prime Minister and other cabinet members will officially welcome all the hashers on Friday 25th May at Prince Charles Park and the President of Fiji expected to officiate at the closing on Sunday 27th May

On on to Fiji Interhash 2018
