Hashers and Harriettes. At this time we announce that InterAm Medellin will be postponed to Labor Day weekend 2022. Sept 2-5. The backlog of events from 2020, 2021 made it necessary.

Medellin Hash House
It is what you are expecting, and much more. A micro boutique lodge atop of the mountains overlooking Medellin and adjacent to the world famous Arvi Park. For hashers by hashers. A cornerstone of the InterAm 2022 plan is to have a presence in the community, diversify part of the investment we have all made to make IAH happen, provide a performing asset on the kennel's books, all while providing a true shiggylisious hash experience to all that visit.
It sleeps up to 11 normies indoors, so about 20 hashers. With plenty of space for camping and direct access to trails all around.
It is currently being fitted with solar energy and rain recuperation efforts to minimize our footprint. Kitchen should be finished by February. The Medellin Hash House is ready to receive travel hashers now, but we are not going officially live until late Feb. Keep checking back on that green button at the top right hand.

How does Medellin H3 operate?
All funds received are sent and managed by a local Non for Profit based here in Medellin Colombia. The Corporacion Nuestra Tierra has been in operations for over 10+ years on social issues affecting underserved and impoverished communities. In 2018 Pablo entered the organization as a volunteer and has since then become the person to drive eco sustainable tourism projects to many wonderful natural and urban areas. What we call… Hashing.
By operating as a non profit we are able to engage the services of the community, local gov, and all necessary players required to bring a large event like IAH into being.
As a nonprofit we are able to provide transparency in reporting to the tax and revenue authorities both here and in the US and elsewhere if needed.
Interam is always on an odd year. Please postpone to 2023.
This is not currently being discussed. But the new model and design of Hash Colombia and the Medellin Hash House means you can come anytime to the Medellin Hash House and hash (subject to occupancy). We hope that the success of the Medellin Hash House and Interam 2022 means that we will be running one large event a year. With smaller events year round. But that’s in the future.
