Dear Hashers!

We are now just over a month away from the big event, so here is an update from the organisers (Belly Dancer & Byte My Yahoo).

Yee Peng & Loy Kratong Festival

Firstly a wholehearted apology from Belly Dancer – when I bid for MIH 2019 in September 2018, Google showed that the renowned and beautiful Loy Kratong Festival was on 13th November 2019. Sadly Chiang Mai City Council have set the main activities from Sunday 10th Nov – Tuesday 12th November 2019. A detailed program is attached to this email. If you are able to come earlier then its strongly recommended, but there will undoubtedly be continued celebrations lasting throughout the week.

Further information here:-

(Note MIH 2019 have no connection with PM-Tours and the link is solely to provide background information.)

MIH 2019 – Main Event

This years event has proved very popular and is sold out. Therefore, there will be absolutely no payment in Chiang Mai – ONLY pre-paid registrants will be admitted. When you arrive at Registration at the Duang Tawan Hotel in Chiang Mai, please bring your official Registration Receipt and ID. At the registration desk every attendee will be required to sign a Waiver, which is also attached to this email.

At Registration sign-in you will be given your Goody Bag. Registration will be conducted over the period 12 -18 November – and further information will be provided on this in early November. Your Goody Bag will contain your security bracelet for MIH 2019 and any Pre/Post lube runs you have paid for – you should check your bag before you leave the Registration area as replacement security bracelets will not be given out. The security bracelets are soft, comfortable and durable enough to survive the toughest Ball Breaker! They can only be removed by cutting them off. Entrance to the venues, bus boarding will be security bracelet only.

MIH 2019 – Pre/Post Lube Runs

Pre/Post events are open to all, regardless of MIH 2019 Main Event attendance, but we strongly advise you pre-book & pay as soon as possible, as after 15/10/2019 we will not be able to guarantee haberdashery, or enough BEER! If you have already registered and paid, please check your name is on the Who’s Cumming List on the website. Otherwise:- http://www.indochina2019.com/prelube-postlube-registration/

We are excited and looking forward to seeing you here in beautiful Chiang Mai and hope you have a fun time with friends – old and new!

MIH 2019 Mismanagement

Pre-Lube & Post-Lube Registration

We are now accepting formal registrations for Pre-lube and Post-lube events, and you should have received an email to let you sign up. Please check out the Who’s Cumming pages for each of the runs after you’ve paid your runfees!


We are busily working away to make MIH2019 an awesome, ‘memorable’ event and we are looking forward to welcoming all of you to our hashing trails in Chiang Mai. Nonetheless we realise that some on the “Who’s Cumming” list may unfortunately not be able to make it. There is a waiting list, so if you can’t make it, we’d love to welcome someone from our waiting list to take your place!

However, as we have already started production on personalised items, we are not able to offer you a refund of your run fee in the event that you can not attend. If you can find someone to buy your place, then let us know, otherwise, we can offer it to the next person on the waiting list, (although we are wary of data protection issues if we were to connect you directly). We are nonetheless trying to be fair for those who suffer unfortunate circumstances that mean they can’t attend, ergo we offer the following updated refund policy:-

Before 30th June- 4000B
1st July – 31st August – 3000B
1st Sept 31st October – 2000B
After 1st November – NO REFUND

(All fees will be covered by you and refunds will be processed after the event).

Change of Venue!

The Imperial Mae Ping Hotel is closing for renovations, and so we have moved our base hotel to the Duang Tawan Hotel – let’s call it an upgrade! https://www.duangtawanhotelchiangmai.com/

The Duang Tawan Hotel has great facilities and is right around the corner from the Imperial Mae Ping, located right on Loi Kroh Road, and a very short walk from the Night Bazaar and River. The venue change therefore doesn’t make too many differences to the original plan – in many ways it is even better!

If you have already booked your accommodation at the Imperial Mae Ping – Don’t Worry! Your reservation will be moved directly to the Duang Tawan at no cost – or if you would prefer to get a refund, it is not a problem to get a full refund. The hotels will handle the reservation transfer (not the MIH organisers!), so they will contact you directly next week!

If you haven’t booked your room yet, there are still rooms at the Duang Tawan and a new booking form – Duang Tawan Hotel Booking.

TDH3 Prelube Announced

The TDH3 is organising Prelube events – a hash/bus/train from Bangkok->Chiang Mai before the events begin in Chiang Mai, and then a prelube run on Friday morning. Full information can be found here:- TDH3

Hotel Bookings!

Agoda is reporting over 50% of hotel rooms are already occupied for next November! Loi Kratong is a popular time in Chiang Mai, so please make sure you get your room sorted early! If you want to stay at the Imperial Hotel, you can use the following booking form!

Booking Form


Be advised that this event is now over subscribed and all new registrants will be placed on the Waiting List

Places are filling up!

We are currently processing registrants on the waiting list and all new registrants are for now being placed on the waiting list too due to the volume of Rego submissions we have received. Successful registrants will be admitted on a first come basis once we have dealt with the back-log of those previously wait listed.

Byte Got Drunk…

So Byte went hashing, and had a few beers at the OnONOn, and can’t be arsed creating receipts tonight… If you paid today, hopefully I’ll sober up and send you a receipt tomorrow!
