One Saturday afternoon in Bang Kruay in February of 1982 there was much debate after the BH3 circle about the possible formation of a Monday Hash. The arguments “for” being that Monday was the “traditional” hash day (says who?), and that some pussy whipped hashers were having constant difficulty getting pink tickets for the weekends; the arguments “against” being the mid week traffic, and the difficulties of getting to decent run sites without leaving the office at mid day, and the concern that another hash would have a negative effect on the Saturday Hash.

After several passionate declamations which were generally anti the whole idea, a vote was taken, in true democratic fashion, to resolve this issue “once and for all”, with the result being that the motion to form a Monday Hash was defeated by a resounding 30 “against” and 1 “for”.

This was therefore taken as a clear mandate to go ahead, and BMH3 was formed and had its first run on 8th March 1982.

The one vote “for” on that historic evening was none other than Terry "Pinky" Moore, aka the Pink Pontificator, who subsequently crowned himself as the first GM of BMH3, or as he preferred to call himself, the “YWHMH”. It was left to the rest of us to speculate that Pinky’s sole reason for supporting the formation of BMH3 was to satisfy his craving for the power base he knew he would be denied in BH3.

Not very surprisingly, the majority of the 34 that turned up for the inaugural run were from the group of 30 “against”.

The Monday Hash was very much considered part of the Saturday Hash at first, and started off life as a men only hash running once every two weeks (apart from run number 2, which took place three weeks after run number 1 to allow the Hare more time to get his act together – how considerate they were in those days). It continued in this fashion for a further 2 years, until, in attempt to boost flagging support, Hares Modesty Blaise and Bullet set two runs on consecutive Mondays and broke the two week cycle. Thereafter BMH3 ran every week, and very shortly after that, Knut Herzer, having taken over from Pinky as GM, declared that the runs be opened up to the fairer sex and small furry animals.

Wichanee was the first lady to join, on run 55, followed shortly afterwards by Pe (RIP) and Tim Daley, and as the number of members gradually increased BMH3 established its own strong identity and let the umbilical tie with BH3 wither away.

8 March 1982Run 1Run no. 1 Hare – Knut Herzer, co-hare Jim Shutler. Location Wat Thewasunthorn, on Viphavadee Road just north of Ngarm Wong Wan Road. Runs were held every two weeks until late 1983, after which they were held irregularly, sometimes once a month. Cash surplus B1,800.

20 July 1982The Monday Trooth hits the streets of Bangkok for the first time. Up to then it had been a section of the BH3 newsletter.
1 March 1983Run 26First BMH3 boat run. The run was as the ever popular area known as Prapadaeng, but instead of making use of the facilities at the Sanitary Section the runners drove halfway to Samut Prakan and got a ferry across the river from Baan Bang Kasop. The hare was Richard Edmunds. This was also BMH3’s first (and only?) run on a Tuesday.
19 March 1983Run 49First record of a Harriette running. Four unnamed Harriettes joined this run.
3 April 1984Run 50Due to the impatience of the Hares – Bob ‘Bullet’ Boulter and Blaise, BMH3 becomes a weekly event instead of fortnightly. The first weekly run was set just over the other side of Taksin Bridge, from the slip road on the left back to Charoen Nakorn Road. Yes, it was possible to set runs there then.
15 May 1984Run 56The first lady new boot – Wichanee ‘Imelda’ Cherutas. The run was at Chong Nonsee (Chan Road now). The hare was Tony Lovell who worked for CP group then and the run site was in the environs of his office. Imelda was asked by Knut to join Monday as he seemed to think the fairer sex would keep the Monday going (and they don’t come any fairer than Imelda). Pe had been supplying beer to Monday then but didn't join until Imelda came on board. A few weeks later Pe and later Tim Daly joined. Rusty Proctor was the GM that year. Other non-men members were Liz Bridges , Pat Elsmie, Ruth Pagell, Benjamas Ngernwattana.
11 June 1984Run 60Ken Onishi becomes the first Japanese to join BMH3.
