It’s that time in New Orleans.
August rolls around. Everyone is hot, sweaty, and cranky. Tourism hits an all-time low. Service industry starts eating Ramen to make it until football season. Harrierettes on their period rejoice at the prospect of wearing RED.
It is time. Red time. Red dress time. What? No.
This is Voodoo. We don’t put on events for thousands of people. That’s too much work. Skirts are also sluttier than dresses. That crap’s too classy for the likes of us.
Instead we do our regular ol’ trail on Thursday as usual. No extra rego. $1 and a 6 pack. Voodoo doesn’t provide beer or kegs. Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat. Bring your own hooch. We’ll have ice to put it on. Coincidentally, we get 100+ out-of-town hashers showing up for our trail and circle. Why? Who cares. We’re just that awesome.
Get over to Goodwill or somewhere swankier and get the skankiest, reddest darn skirt you can find. It’s the pre-pre-lube for the big weekend coming up. Red Skirt is MANDATORY for this hash!
The trail is being laid by Voodoo’s sexiest hares. Who are they? Show up and find out. We promise trail won’t suck. But hares lie.
Check out this document one of the hares wrote up; it will be the way trail is laid, which might be foreign to other kennels (and to a lot of Voodoo hashers, since nobody seems to follow trail anyway). Familiarize yourself with any unknown marks or indicators of True Trail. It might save you a YBF!
Walker trail provided for DFLs; Turkey-Eagle split anticipated for FRBs and FBIs. Trail is A-B-A1. Trail will be marked with chalk and flour dyed red with tempura paint powder.

Parking meters are enforced Monday-Saturday, 8:00am to 6:00pm. If you park at a meter after 6:00pm, it is free, but you need to retrieve your car by 8:00am to avoid a $20-$40 ticket.
There is also a paid lot very close to the start. It is $5 for up to 9 hours; it goes up to $8-$15 for 12 hours (rates change on Friday, not sure if you would get Thursday rate) if you get too drunk to drive home:
