Third-Annual Fruhlingsfest West (Possibly the Last), 27-29 April 2018
It is that time of year, the time when hashers from all over Europe converge on Stuttgart for Fruhlingsfest at the Canstaater Wasen.

Well...AGAIN...there are a multitude of us who have departed Germany and find ourselves located within the continental United States (CONUS). And AGAIN, we are not to be short-changed by our inability to access Wasen festing fun. No, no, no...that shit isn't happening...didn't happen last year...or the year before...not happening this year. BUT, good ole Uncle Sugar might have another move in store for me and some of the former Germany hashers...and so, we seek to make this the best of the three Fruhlingsfests (Spring Fest) we've put on.

There will be German beer to drink, freshly made German cuisine, Schnapps, trail, buffoonery and merriment to be experienced by those who wish to partake.

As with last year, this fest weekend will be sponsored by Bell-Scott and Fireside Malts H3, and Saturday's Trail will be sponsored by Big Hump H3. ...multiple kennels coming together for sheer hash greatness...greatness, I tell you...greatness.
