PanSoAm 2024 February Update Newsletter

Dear Hashers

Welcome to the inaugural edition of our Pan South America Hash 2024 newsletter, designed to keep you abreast of event developments, venue details, updates, and exciting news.

As you may already know, this Pan South America Hash marks a significant milestone as the first of its kind to be held in South America. Organizing such an event poses unique challenges in this part of the world, where processes tend to unfold at a different pace, particularly in Brazil. Adapting to this environment requires a shift in mindset, embracing a more relaxed approach to avoid becoming overwhelmed. As the saying goes, "Brazil is not for beginners."

Nevertheless, the event's mismanagement committee remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering an exceptional inaugural Pan South America Hash experience this year. We've secured top-notch venues, engaged the finest catering companies to prepare authentic Brazilian cuisine, and partnered with sponsors to showcase the best of Brazilian products.

With Hash trails set over five days—official trails on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, alongside unofficial ones on Wednesday and Thursday—there's ample opportunity for exploration and adventure in and around Brasilia.

Our trail mismanagement team is diligently scouting breathtaking trails in and around Brasilia, highlighting the city's diverse beauty and catering to hashers of all skill levels, from easy routes to challenging ballbusters.

We hope you share our excitement in visiting our city to hash and revel in its vibrant atmosphere. Brasilia stands apart as a truly unique, futuristic destination unlike any other in the world—once you experience it firsthand, you'll understand its allure.

That's all for now. Enjoy the update, and remember, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

4. Friday & Saturday, the 7th and 8th of June - The PanSoAm Hash Party Place

We're thrilled to announce our

collaboration with lubCe Almirante

Alexandrino , renowned as one of

Brasilia's premier private clubs, to host

the ultimate party space for the

PanSoAm festivities.

On Friday and Saturday nights, the club

will come alive with live bands, DJs,

presentations, and skits, offering a vibrant atmosphere against the backdrop of

spectacular lake views. Nestled near the lake, the club provides an ideal setting to

dance the night away.

Friday night's Red Dress Run will culminate at the club, featuring a South American themed party. The live band will serenade guests with traditional and popular music from across the continent. Shuttle buses will be available for a convenient return to the Asa Norte hotel sector.

On Saturday night, buses will transport guests from the Asa Norte hotel sector to the club for a Brazilian carnival themed extravaganza. We won't reveal too much, but expect a night filled with surprises and unforgettable moments. Rest assured; shuttle buses will be on hand to transport revelers back to the hotel sector.

5. Event Caterers – Unique Brazilian Food

Brazil boasts a rich tapestry of

culinary delights, with each state

offering its own unique specialties.

We aim to highlight some of the

most beloved culinary experiences

from across the country.

Friday night's indulgence will feature

a sumptuous buffet of feijoada. This

traditional Brazilian stew, crafted from black beans and an assortment of pork and

beef cuts including sausage, pork ribs, and beef, holds a place of honor as the national

dish of Brazil. Typically accompanied by rice, collard greens, and orange slices,

fe ijoada is a staple at gatherings and celebrations. Rest assured, vegetarian options

will be available alongside an array of delectable desserts and cheese platters.

Saturday night promises not only a culinary extravaganza but a visual feast as well. We've enlisted the expertise of one of Brasilia's premier Gaucho BBQ specialists, renowned among embassies and prominent events. Gaucho-style BBQ involves grilling meat over an open flame, a time-honored tradition in South American nations like Argentina and Uruguay. Seasoned simply with salt and cooked slowly to perfection, the meat will tantalize taste buds with its smoky flavor and succulence. Vegetarian alternatives will be provided, and a selection of beverages including wine, beer, caipirinhas, and caipiroskas will be available to complement the meal.

6. South America Hasher s Wanted to Hare Trails

This inaugural Pan South America Hash marks a historic occasion as the first of its kind to be hosted on South American soil, offering a platform to showcase the diversity of Hashes across the continent. Presently, we have Hashers confirmed from seven different South American countries slated to participate in this landmark event. We extend a warm invitation to these kennels to become integral parts of the festivities by sponsoring a trail.

As a sponsoring kennel, you will be

entrusted with setting a trail on Saturday according to your own hash traditions, complete with hash signs, chalk talk, and the customary circle at its conclusion.

This affords Hashers from around the

globe a unique opportunity to immerse

themselves in the distinct style of your

local kennel. Moreover, the trail you sponsor will bear the official name of your country of origin. For instance, if you agree to set a trail and hail from Paraguay, it will be officially designated as "The Paraguay Trail."

Rest assured, you will have the support of Brasilia Hashers during the trail setting process, along with comprehensive trail maps and pertinent information. Additionally, each hare will receive an exclusive limited edition PanSoAm hare t shirt as a token of appreciation for their contribution to the event. If you are interested, please send an email to

7. Trail Registration Coming Soon

As you can envision, orchestrating six distinct trails across Brasilia presents a logistical challenge. Transportation via buses to and from various locations is imperative to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience for all participants. To streamline this process, we kindly request that you pre register your preferred trail for Saturday by the end of March. Rest assured, detailed information regarding each trail, including length and level of difficulty, will be provided to assist you in making your selection.

In March, we will furnish you with a registration form containing all pertinent details
