From Ghost Rider, founder of ChooChooH3 – I wanted to share some Choo Choo Hash House Harriers history with all of you.. The first r*nning of the Choo Choo H3 was on June 9th, 2004 at 7 PM, started by Chris “Ghost Rider” Calhoun while at home on leave for a 2 week break from deployments. The first pack consisted of several close friends and even some unborn hashers!
Although we did not record a lot of what happened on the hash, I do remember it being a really fun time and a teaching trail. This first group of Choo Choo Hashers proceeded to do about 8 more hash trails over a 12 day period and managed to carry on the Choo Choo H3 as Ghost Rider departed the Chattanooga area yet again. This core group of hashers is responsible for building, maintaining, and extending the hash into what it is today, without them the hash would have faded away. THANK YOU ALL for keeping the Hash alive. On-On!!!
For all those new to the Choo Choo H3,
The pack has had a lot of ups and downs throughout our growing years, but I want this to be a long lasting thing for us to do so I hope you find some time to put together a trail each month. Take a trip to another kennel (Atlanta has several, Nashville is always fun, Birmingham has 2 and Huntsville puts on a great pub crawl) so get out and go play with your fellow hashers…you will not regret it…well maybe a little!!!
