HISTORY: This Power of the Pussy (PotP) trail was created by White House H3 harriettes which was the later inspiration for the Chicago POP event. The creative mastermind was Crack Shot, an ER nurse. She heard a co-worker say ‘power of the pussy’ and a trail was created. The original hares have moved away or stopped hashing but the thought of bringing hashers together to discover Annapolis through trail and beverages has remained a constant. It is only the haring that is limited to harriettes, all hashers are welcome to attend. Spinal Tap was given special approval once since it was his birthday and there have been stunt and phantom pussies as well. PotP has no affiliation with harriette only kennels.
DESCRIPTION: follow your choice of runner’s or walker’s trail (or switch between) up and down through the alleys and cobblestone streets of historic Annapolis. Trail is never far from the harbor or water which surrounds the city. BRING ID
Do not stray from trail and risk missing one of the 4 beverage checks set on or overlooking the water. Ample time is allowed for all hashers to gather at the checks before moving on. Most importantly do not follow or listen to hashers who say ‘last year it went that way or the check was there’. Every year trail is turned around and check locations are moved to keep it interesting and show off different parts of the city, so please listen to the hares. The hares may not know what they are doing but they do know where trail goes.
TRAIL MARKINGS: Trail is marked in chalk, chalk balls to be exact. No flour.
Checks are ‘kitty cat’ circles. False trails/Bad trails are marked BT.
Back Checks are marked BC and the number of marks to go back to find true trail, as in ‘BC6’
True trail – arrow with 3 Bars. –|–|–|—-
There will be song stops/halts, these are not checks, so stop, sing a song and move along in the same direction. There will also be photo/vista stops, again these are not checks, so pause, snap, and move along.
At times there will be an arrow with “#1 -”, or “#2 –”, etc, this is the correct way to the next beverage check. This is not the same as a BN (beverage near). It’s not around the corner. Hopefully some folks can count so you know if you’ve been to #1 you need to go to #2, etc.
The location of the beverage check may have a circle with a # in it. Some rac!sts may reach this mark before the hares show up with the beverage so please wait. Traffic may be an issue.
