Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1793, Saturday 31st October, 2015, 4:30 p.m.
Hares: Yardstick and Buck
Misdirections: From the Kao Saeng intersection take the old Yala road to the NYR / OYR intersection, at the Ang Thong traffic lights (or get there along the New Yala road from the Ko Yo intersection). From the traffic lights proceed south on the old Yala road (OYR) for 8.3k then turn right at the hash sign just before the mosque. Proceed 3k along the bitumen & concrete road through the village following hash signs or paper to the runsite on the concrete road.
If you are coming from Hatyai, go to the intersection of Kanchanawanit road and Route 43 (the Klong La intersection, beyond Macro) and head East along route 43 towards Chana for 20.6k (which is 7.8k beyond the junction with the 3031 from Wat Nern Pitchit). Turn left at the hash sign for 2.3k along the concrete road, to the runsite on the concrete road.
Sunday's HH3 run will attempt to restore some good Kharma to proceedings by revisiting the site of last Tuesday's Full Moon H3 run, which in case you missed it, was notable for the large turnout of locals from Ban Wong and Napong who graced the occasion and in our honour put on a Nantalung at the run site! On a less auspicious note, Sex Sprinter managed to drop Buk Toy's GPS during the setting of the run, but happily a thorough search the following day was successfull in locating it - still devotedly recording it's location despite having been thoroughly doused by a monsoon during the night. To propitiate the deity who restored this ancient navigational artifact to its rightful owner, Sex Sprinter will be donating to the run on Sunday (you know what's coming next!)... a tray of 50 eggs (Ha! Fooled you!). For the uninitiated, the run site will be: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4k and turn left then go 5.2k (don't go straight ahead at 4k but follow the road as it bends round to the right) and turn left (opposite the temple arch for Wat Borogam) then follow the road for 400m to the runsite. Not sure if the Nantalung will still be there but it might be an idea to bring some earplugs just in case!
Finally, a couple of things in town this weekend: There is a quiz night on Friday evening at the Office bar (8:00 p.m.) when the much reduced SH3 team will take on a strengthened (i.e. Chris, who is quiz-master, will not be in it so Eightball will be able to get all the answers right!) teachers' team as well as the resurgent Auld Alliance who these days seem to be mainly composed of the French and the Germans! Come along and support, participate or just to generally poke fun at us if we lose
Then on Saturday the final of the Rugby World Cup kicks off at 11:00 p.m. and there will likely be a couple of venues available to watch it in town, notably the Corner Bier and the Office Bar where Carsten is going to be putting on some free grub. Probably best to select the one where Stick Insect will NOT be as he is likely to be completely insufferably smug by about 12:30!
