After a week's break, this Saturday's SH3 run is in the capable hands of Yardstick and Perky (with some short assistance from R2D2) who in time-honored tradition have stepped up at the last minute to fill the gaping hole in our hareline which continues to recede alarmingly.
Details are:

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!


  1. Just a couple of amendments: Co-hares are Yardstick & Perky, with R2D2 assisting with the short run hopefully; and comments: If you're coming from outer Songkhla, the distance from the New Yala Road & Old Yala Road junction to the turn off to the right is 5.3kms. Note that there a lot of road works going on currently on the Old Yala Road and it is easy to miss the turn off just before Wat Khun Thong. From the turn off go 2.7km and turn left.
    The runsite is 0.9km along the cement road into the rubber.
