A Very Special Message From da GM (Elections Info)
Greeting all you wankers and bimbos,
As you probably have noticed, 2011 is quickly coming to an end. Sad, I know, but all good things must come to an end. We laughed, we cried, we said our hellos, we said our goodbyes. All of that sentimental crap. With this in mind, we need to start talking about the 2012 Chicago Hash House Harriers elections.
As we discussed at the last mismanagement meeting (11/9), and which had no objections at the meeting, CH3 will be using the old “points system” that was previously used under the Chicken Stiffer regime (Boo! Hiss! Chicken Stiffer sucks!). The “point system” works as follows – you get one point for every CH3 hash that you ATTEND* and one additional point for every CH3 hash that you HARE**. That’s it.*** Very simple, actually. With that in mind, I’ve uploaded the attendance spreadsheet (as a Google Doc – if Google Docs scares you, email me and I can send you the Excel file) that I’ve been keeping since February (when our records started) and I’d like to ask that everybody take a quick look at it. I’ve tried to make it as accurate as possible, but some time people do slip through the cracks. If you feel like I’ve shortchanged you in any way, please EMAIL ME (DO NOT POST IT TO THE GROUP) and we’ll discuss it like adults – there are a number of hashes that I had to miss this year, so I know for a fact that my records aren’t 100% accurate. If I missed you at one or more hash, please know that this was in no way intentional (unless, of course, you’re continually showing up and not paying your hash cash).
Seriously, please do not come to me and debate the merits of the attendance records of other hashers, I don’t have time for that with both Anthrax and the holidays coming up. This concludes our very special message from the GM – we now return you to your regularly scheduled programming, already in progress.
* – ATTEND is defined as showing up to the hash and paying hash cash – you don’t have to run trail, you just have to pay your $8 (or $3 if you can’t drink beer).
** – HARE is defined as help out with the organization and/or execution of the hash in some way – for example, everyone involved with planning PoP, Anthrax, Memorial Day, etc are defined as a hare, even if they didn’t set the trail.
*** – These are not up for debate, if you don’t like the system, please come to mismanagement in the upcoming year and make a case for whichever system you would prefer, but understand that this issue will not be discussed at mismanagement again until after the conclusion of the upcoming election.
