Great weather for hashing!

The SH3 weather department brings you the stunning news that it is raining, and barring a major shift in the weather system currently sitting over Songkhla, that seems likely to continue over the weekend. But, the good news is that the Hash will go on, and certainly insofar as Saturday's SH3 run is concerned, can promise a dry run site and hard-top parking. Beyond that the prognosis is probably wet feet, but the hares have promised NOT to set a swamp run and to at least make an attempt at keeping the pack out of the water as much as possible. Where is this haven? Who are these miracle workers? Good questions!

SH3 run #1590: Saturday November 26th 2011, 4:00 p.m.
Hares: Kii Leum, Egghead and Only a Yolk
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.7k and turn left for 6k, then left for 2k then right for 300 meters to the run site near the big new sala.

Sunday's HH3 run (November 27th, 4:22 p.m.) is being set by Sex Star and Sex Au Au and the run site is a Poonakan location somewhere in the vicinity of Channel 11: from the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.7k and turn left for 8k then right at Wat Keow Kloy for about 7.5k and look for a sign on the right.

Bereavered or just debeavered?

This enigmatic image has surfaced this week cementing the growing fear that the Beaver has finally bought it; MIA in hostile territory; copped the big negative. Last heard of three weeks ago embarking on a highly secret under-cover mission to bring democracy to the political wastelands of Myanma, our intrepid CIA clone has not been heard of since.

But he would have wanted us to carry on...

So, SH3 will be joined this week by Bagan Serai Hash from Perlis and it would be nice to turn out in force to greet them, or more precisely to avoid the embarassment of there being more of them than there are of us! Special catering arrangements will apply so there'll be a bumper feast afterwards, and despite apocryphal rumors of a beer drought, the beer truck will be plentifully supplied.

Details are:

SH3 run# 1589, Saturday November 19th, 2011, 4:00 p.m.
Hare: Buk Toy
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection, take the old Hatyai road for 9.5k to the run site on the right.

HH3's run this Sunday (20th November 2011) is also a three-line whipper. The run will be at the autistic kids school in Ban Phru, and all proceeds of the run and any additional money raised on the day will go towards the school's development fund. The run site is just off the Sadao road about 1.8k after the intersection with the main North-South highway beyond Macro, on the left hand side of the road. There's a map below. It's an area we haven't run in for a couple of years, so as well as being in aid of a really good cause the run itself will be worth coming along for. The hare is Sexy Pig and the run will start at 4:17 p.m. sharp.

AND the GM asks politely if we could come along to the run wearing the shirt from the 555 run; we don't have to wear it to run in, just be identifiable as an organised group before we go off and turn into screaming lunatics out in the jungle; after all we don't want to scare the kids do we?

But this is a really good cause, so let's turn out in big numbers to support it or turn out big numbers from our wallets if we can't actually come along.

Here's the eyeball stimulation data on Saturday's well received pussy run which you probably missed - a lot of people did, unfortunately; but the seven hounds and four mutts who didn't, enjoyed it. 7k and a perfect hour for first home Sex Sprinter with the rest of the pack not far behind.
Sadly no visuals of today's excellent HH3 run which most people didn't miss. A welcome return to haredom for Sofa and Ouab Im in an area previously only accessible to 4WD's which now has a major highway running right to its front door. Another great weekend's running - when was the last time we had a run that was anything less than excellent?

Instant update!

...on the HH3 run on Sunday which is a bit further East than anticipated. Here's a map, and the directions for Songkhla are: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.7k, then left for 10.8k, then left for 2.2k.
Nice country!

Get the picture?

It's a pussy run this week, but they promise to be gentle with us, and the location of the runsite suggests that we are unlikely to encounter any of the hostile territory that recent pussy runs have taken us through.

Details are:
SH3 run #1588, Saturday November 12th 2011: 4:00 p.m.
Hares: (from) After Ours, Crackwurst, Only a Yolk, Meals on Wheels, Temporary Relief + Canine buddies
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the Old Hatyai road for 4k and turn left for 6k then turn right and follow signs and paper to the run site.

Sunday's HH3 run is being set by Sofar and Ouab Im. The location is in the region of Ban Sai Kao, i.e. near the big tree (Old Yala road 16k, right 3.5k) but no doubt more details will be available at Saturday's run.

Next week, the Songkhla Hash run on Saturday (19th November) will be joined by 35 hashers from Bagan Serai Hash who hail from Perak in Northern Malaysia. They sent 3 representatives to R2D2's last-but-one run and had to be guided home by Gan Yao but were obviously impressed enough to want to bring their mates back to join us!

Finally, it looks like no full moon run this month, with Loy Kratong intervening, But if anyone wants to volunteer to set a run early next week, speak to the GM'ette tomorrow (if you dare!)

Amazing coincidence!

This week's hares share a coincidence with another SH3 runner which is so amazing that it makes you realize that we are all part of a huge cosmic design in which we are just powerless pawns on life's great chessboard.

First, R2D2 is a hare tomorrow, and he is also Sh3 GM, but it is not his birthday (although it was on Thursday) and he will be at tomorrow's run. Second, Egghead is a hare tomorrow and it is also his birthday but he is not SH3 GM and he will also be at tomorrow's run. Third, Yardstick who is also a hare has never been SH3 GM (but February is looming) and it is not his birthday tomorrow, but he will be at tomorrow's run. Finally, Beavershot, who is not a hare tomorrow, is not GM, it is not his birthday and he will not be at tomorrow's run!!!! Astounding huh?

Anyway, syncronicity apart, tomorrow's details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers run #1587, November 5th 2011, 4:00 p.m. (weally, weally!)
Hares: R2D2, Yardstick and Egghead
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4k and turn left for 5.2k then left (yes, left) for 500 meters to the run site on both sides of the road.

Sunday's HH3 run (#556, 6th November, 4:30 p.m. is being set by Nichaow and Sex Tsunami. The map below may provide some guidance as to it's location, but the smart money is on heading down Poonakan and looking for signs at about 5.5k
