The hash cash portion of this job includes being the holder of the purse-strings. Someone needs to dash about at the start of each hash begging for $7 from each person (someone has to keep track of what comes in and what goes out.) They are adept at knowing when to say, “Yeah, we can float you this week.” Or when to say, “Pay up you cheapskate”. Without money there is no beer. The hash cash tries to keep the hash from going in the red. Going broke is OK, owing money is bad.
The On-Sec portion of this job entails being keeper of the records; ie- putting names in the book for who comes to trail so we know who to go looking for in the shaggy if they are lost on trail. The On-Sec can at a moments notice let hashers know how many trails they have done, provide a list of attending hashers to the Hash Historian so they can write about the days events, and recognize major trail analversaries.
