Up next: Anthrax 2019! (CH3 #2254, 2255, 2256)

The line of ‘Make Anthrax Great Again,’ the phrase, that was mine, I came up with it about a year ago, and I kept using it, and everybody’s using it, they are all loving it. I don’t know, I guess I should copyright it, maybe I have copyrighted it.

There will be trails. These will be, the best trails you’ve ever run, or that anyone has ever run. There will be a ballbuster–the longest ballbuster, an eagle–the most eagle there has been, a turkey–very turkey, so turkey in fact, I’m telling you, and even a walkers trail. I heard there will be walkers. I’m just saying we’re probably going to have walkers. Walkers are “hashers”, just not the best.

Your rego gets you these incredible trails and a fabulous taco buffet. I have a great relationship with tacos and I love Hispanics! There is also an open bar because there will be incredible, out of control, big league hashers that love beer. There will also be some very, very special beer, and frankly, you’re incredibly lucky to have this beer. It was very, very easy for me to get this beer, but I’m telling you, you’re very, very lucky. You’ll also get some fantastic gimmies. Great gimmies. A deadline will be posted when there is a cutoff for personalized gimmies. The pathetic, rude latecomers will not get top gimmies, and those hashers are weak, really.

Registration is open! We will have extraordinary security–the top security, honestly this security is tremendous–to prevent the crooked QCH3 hashers from taking up the staggering amount of phenomenal Chicago hashers ability to rego at the best rate. After I make Chicago First, the rest of the boring kennels can rego.

Rego here!
