Fm : Neil HAGS Hutchinson UPDATE - TIM "MAGIC" HUGHES / HARRIER INTERNATIONAL DATELINE : BANGKOK 16th FEBRUARY 1998 Please post following message to Harrier International Web page for general information to the Hash community. Contrary to speculation and rumours circulating on e-mail, I wish to appraise you all of the situation regarding Tim "Magic" Hughes affairs and in particular, the situation regarding the future of Harrier International. 1. HARRIER INTERNATIONAL PUBLICATIONS The future of HI publications and management is currently under discussion between Bangkok Hash House Harriers (BH3) and Mother Hash, Kuala Lumpur. It is not expected that any decisions will be reached until after the 23rd February when Mother Hash will hold its AGM and the new incoming committee will endeavour to reach a satisfactory agreement with BH3 soon thereafter. Meanwhile, all HI business is continuing as usual under the control of the ad-hoc BH3 committee established at the time of "Magics" untimely death. Beaver Bam Bam Balls, the keeper of the Website, will be continuing in this capacity with no foreseeable changes. 2. HARRIER INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORIES BH3 advise that correspondence has been discovered among "Magics" paperwork regarding the non-delivery of HI directories. Additionally, a considerable number of cheques in payment of HI directories have not been banked. BH3 is unable to provide any explanation as to either of these events but is instituting the following action :- (i) All non deposited cheques will be notified to the drawer so that replacement MONEY ORDERS or BANK DRAFTS can be reissued to the account of NEIL C HUTCHINSON Siam Commercial Bank p.c.l. SCB Park Plaza 19 Ratchadapisek Road Ladyao, Chatuchak Bangkok 10900 Account No. 111-2-11204-0 Please do not send personal cheques due to difficulty in clearing and the high commissions charged by Thai Banks. Copies of bank instructions/copies of money order/bank drafts to be faxed to Neil "HAGS" Hutchinson on 66.2.561.3732 to enable control of incoming cash. This is an automatic phone/fax facility. Upon receipt of funds HI directories will be immediately dispatched. (ii) A considerable number of HI directories had been prepared by "Magic" but remained unposted. BH3 have cleared this backlog and will endeavour to release more in the immediate future once the proofs of payment have been clarified. (iii) Any correspondence relating to non supply of HI publications should be sent to Neil "HAGS" Hutchinson on the above fax number quoting full name, address, details of form of payment and date. We will acknowledge all correspondence and try to clear outstanding claims soonest. As a final note, please try to understand BH3=92s difficult position - as "Magic" was the sole signatory to some 25 different bank accounts around the world, BH3 are trying to obtain probates, with the support of "Mango", to release information on all these accounts. Until this has been undertaken it will be difficult for BH3 to unravel all of Harrier International's transactions. You will be interested to know that BH3 have photographed "Magics" flat as it is a veritable time-capsule of Hash History. Many tonnes of paper, untold 1,000's of letters and correspondence have been accumulated in piles which appear to be disorganised. You will be amazed at the eclectic collection and volume of information that was available to "Magic". Best regards & On On Neil "HAGS" Hutchinson G.M.
