"No Mercy Master" invites you to join the Vienna 800th run, which will be set in the picturesque village of Moenichkirchen. The village is situated in Northern Steirmark 1,000m above sea level. The accommodation is a little higher up the mountain at 1,200 metres in a wooded area. There are good views from the venue of
the surrounding countryside.

Two types of accommodation are available :-

A boarding house, "Norge  Universitaetsheim", that can accommodate approximately 20 people. This house has several bedrooms containing two or more beds. Downstairs at ground level is the party room. The basement has a sauna and showers.

A Hotel, Alpengasthof "Enzian", with an assortment of single, double, treble and more bed rooms. The two buildings are situated within 100 metres of one another.

As the Hotel and boarding house are associated with one another the grounds which they stand on are all available to the hash. The facilities available include:

Schedule for the Weekend

Friday 18th September - Registration and late night run (Run 799)

Meet at the "Lift Pension Sonnenhof" on Friday from 15:00 to 21:00. Have a few drinks. Registration followed by a night run up to the accommodation. Bring flashlights for this event. Drinks and Buffet at the Hotel after the run.

Saturday 19th September - Official 800th Run

Get up Saturday and play the Hash-o-lympics. This will include timed races on the scooters down the hill, volley ball and other nonsense. Saturday afternoon at 14:00 the 800th run will start. This will include the highest beer stop I have ever made, or more probably, the highest anybody has ever made unless they have hashed in the Himalayas!

This will be followed by some drinking - just a little - in the circle. Note that any and all offences committed during the run will be noted and punishment handed out accordingly. Winging about mountains etc will be considered offensive language and will be dealt with accordingly.

Saturday night party in the boarding house until we're all sick of it or the hashers sleeping there throw us out.

Sunday 20th September - 11 a.m. Hangover Run (Run 801)

Sunday late start after breakfast followed by a hangover run starting at 11:00. The Sunday circle, lunch and finally get cleaned up for departure.
