At an unusually brief, concise, uncontroversial and largely inaudible AGM, the new committee has been elected.

 

 

What a fantastic summer weekend away. Even by the normal high standards of this event, 2018 was brilliant.

 

Many thanks to the organisers of the Summer getaway to Swanage, the hares

and to all of you that came along and enjoyed a really special time in glorious sunshine.

 

 

When is a Roman VIII not a Roman IIX?

 

 

 

 

 

FYI for you smartasses that thought that there was a misspelling on the 2000th T-shirt:

Jane Austin (1831 - 1894) was a prolific American authoress who lived in Massachusetts and travelled to New Hampshire.

 

Many thanks to the committee and hares who made NH4's 2000th Hash such an enjoyable event

Several observant hashers have been ruminating about the Roman eight where the format of XIIX has been used to represent the number 18. They maintain that the correct format should be XVIII. We had a similar query in 2008 or MMIIX or even MMVIII. Their argument is that IIX is not correct Roman for 8.

 

First of all, on the hash there are no rules.

 

Secondly, the Romans would have used VIII for 8, but they would not have used IX for 9 since subtractive notation was only introduced centuries later; they would have used VIIII. Subtractive notation only became common when clocks were invented in the XIVth century to save space on the clock dial. So, IIX obeys no Roman rules, but it is not prohibited. It is simply an uncommonly used form. However, it has the merits of being symmetrical, XVIII would not fit in the space available and I LIKE IT.
