On a cool and windy evening in the Calgary Zoo's north parking lot, 42 hashers convened amid gathering rain clouds to see what mayhem uber-hare Pylon, er, Pyro could concoct.

Then again, why wouldn't they?

Calgary's sports landscape was pretty barren, especially after the Flames' dreadful and gutless Game 7 performance against the SoCal Mighty Fighting Water Fowl.

The Stamps and the Vipers (who?) were still a ways away from their seasons getting underway. The Calgary Stampede rodeo was two months off. Only Ottawa and, gulp, Edmonton remained alive in the NHL playoffs to carry the Canadian banner.

So Pyro it was -- and he didn't disappoint.

The trail wound up and down windswept hills, along railroad tracks, through a tunnel underneath the Deerfoot Trail Motor Speedway, past the gigantic ET call home satellite dishes at the Calgary Herald, through an LRT station, across the Bow River and back to the zoo parking lot.


For those who had energy left, they drove to the always hash-friendly Key West Bar & Grill on the west side of downtown for merriment and silliness. Including:

End of song, end of story.

On On!
