Second first

At this stage of the year, every week’s run is someone’s first of the year and this week it’s Yardo’s turn to turn over a new leaf, ably assisted by the lately returning Kii Leum. Details are:

For Hatyai visitors go to the big tree in the middle of the road at Ban Sai Khao, then go straight ahead past the big tree for 800m and turn right for 1.8km.

Don’t forget that Saturday is Children’s Day, and the roads are likely to be a bit busier than usual, so please set off in good time to be at the run site by 4:00 p.m.; and just in case the beer truck doesn’t make it on time it might be an idea to carry some water with you if you want a drink before starting to run.

HH3’s run on Sunday (12 January) is being set by Beanie and Gu Man Thong and the run site is about 900 m past Wat Keow Kloy on the road heading towards Wat Nern Pijit on the right at 7°01'07.5"N 100°34'57.4"E. Click here for Google Maps pin ormap courtesy of Sex Sprinter below.
Before all that there is the first quiz of the year at Oscars Bar on Srisuda road on Friday evening (January 10) starting at 8:00 p.m. Mein host and quizmaster for the evening will be Kan Kai, alias Jackie so come along and support this year’s good cause and give your brain some exercise into the bargain.

Well, here's something that' will work!  Join SH3 for their first run of the year and clear out all those cobwebs as you explore the countryside around Ta Jin and Srisat Kiri on the new Hatyai road. Then after that you can have all the fun of generating a whole new hangover for the following morning!

Instructions for the weekend

...which crudely is what the hash has to offer this weekend with SH3 and HH3 following the tried and tested formula of run-party-repeat!
Saturday's SH3 venue is Not the Full Shilling and Worm's residence in Poonakan as they set the final run of 2019, with a casual gathering afterwards to round off the year for SH3.
Details are:
Songhkhla Hash House Harriers' run #2007, Saturday, December 28, 2019, 4:00 p.m.
Hares: Not the Full Shilling, Worm and Mai Dtem Baht
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.7k and turn left for 8k then at the Wat Keow Kloy traffic lights turn right for 1.3k to the run site inside the big gates on the right at  7.023149° 100.568478°. Click here for Google Maps' pin. From the other end of Poonakan the turning into the big gates is at 9.7k and is on the left.The gathering after the run is a BYO affair so either buy beer from the beer truck or equip yourself with a contribution to the eskie once the beer-truck has been drunk. Likewise food: all contributions gratefully accepted. 

HH3's end of year party is at the old Caltex station at the northern end of the second Tinasulanonda Bridge (from the Ko Yo intersection, head towards Ko Yo and go 9.5k across both bridges and turn left into the gas station at 7.200939° 100.552546° - click here for Google Maps' pin). There are lots of beer sponsors already but don't let that put you off bringing a bit extra. Ditto food - the more the merrier. Registration is the regular 60 Baht and if you feel like dressing up for the evening, the theme is what you wore when you were young. The run itself will start at 3:00 p.m and there will be plenty of room to camp out at the run site if you don't fancy the drive home afterwards.

Sartorial guidance and HH3 this week

The latest sartorial guidance from today's hares is to wear red underpants outside of your normal running gear (in addition to whatever red clothing you can muster). C'mon, humour them!

And while we're at it, here are the directions to tomorrow's HH3 run:

From Wat Keow Kloy take Poonakan for about 5k and turn left at the hash sign. From The other end of Poonakan the turning is at about 6k and is the one after the one immediately after Wat Thung Ngai on the right. Follow the road for about 500m to the runsite on the left. Wear something Christmassy if the mood takes you!
