Each hash requires a hare, to set the trail, and a host, to provide a location for the On In and appropriate victuals. One person can serve both roles, and kudos to those who do, but it's usually more fun to share.
During the four months (July to October, mostly Wednesday runs) from run 1761 to run 1777, inclusive, we had 55 hashers show up at least four times, for an average of at least once per month.
So: 57 runs times 2 key roles per hash = 114 key roles/year; divide that by 55 regular hashers -- pretty sure everyone needs to step up, either as host or lead hare, at least twice a year, if our goal is to distribute the workload somewhat evenly. (It would be 2.07 times/year if the workload were distributed perfectly evenly.)
That suggests that you should try to have at least a '2' recorded in the host/lead hare column below. No rules, of course; just a suggestion.
For sure, if you've got more than a '3' recorded in the host/lead hare column, you should get gourmet treats showered upon you at the Anniversary Hash! Or any other time! Also deserving of tremendous thanks are all the family members we only see a few times a year, when they're slinging flour about the woods to help out dad, or brewing large pots of stew on behalf of the spousal unit and its odiferous friends.
PS: The A List, which includes some folks we only see a few times a year (they live in California, or are 102, or have gotten lives, stuff like that), totals 93 people.
So here's our Hall of Fame for the last twelve months, 25 Jan 2014 - 24 Jan 2015:
