Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1665, Saturday May 11, 2013, 4:30 p.m.
Hares: Yardstick, Perky and R2D2
Misdirections: From the Kao Saeng intersection take the old Yala road for 16k (5.3k past the An Thong intersection of the old and new Yala roads) and turn right just before Wat Kun Thong, then follow the road for 2.7k and turn left for 0.9k to the runsite. (Direction-savvy hashers will realise that there are alternative routes involving going 1k East past the big tree at Ban Sai Kao then turning right. Anyone coming from Hatyai should take a right at the Nam Noi traffic lights and go for about 13k to get to the big tree.)
Sunday's (12th May 2013) HH3 run is from chez Egg and is loosely associated with another time honored tradition happening this week at Wat Borogam which is celebrating Fang Luknimit, a ceremony involving burying balls, pithily summed-up by Google Translate as:
"Loknimit as part of the church. The church. Was buried Loknimit show territory.And territorial integrity of the church, it is a condition. In doing many activities of the discipline. So I do not have to parse every virtue yet."
Technology, huh? Where would we be without it? Anyway, the Thais understand what's going on and will be coming along in force to make merit. The run will be set by the dynamic duo of Kai Jeow and Moo Sahb, making it 3 weeks in a row at HH3, and will be an A to B to C run ending with a passage through the Wat at Borogam and thence to Egg Towers, which is located:
From Ko Yo intersection, take the old Hatyai road for 4k and turn left for 5.2k then turn right through the temple arch. Go 200 meters and turn right before the entrance to the temple itself then follow the road with the temple wall on your left for 300 meters. At the T junction turn left for 50 meters, then right and park on the left.
Transport from Egg Towers to the A site will leave sharp at 4.18 and 20 seconds p.m., so don't be late!
