Lucky sez: I'll wear mine if you'll wear yours.

Lucky look-alike Bozo (no relation
to Donald Trump) shows off this
week's suggested running accessory
This weekend' sees the  celebration of SH3's run #1800 and falling as it does in the week before Yuletide, the run will be Christmas themed with all runners being asked to wear a silly festive hat as well as any other items of Xmas kitch they fancy running in. There will probably also be a prize for the most appropriately Christmassy fancy dress during the evening which will follow.

The whole event takes place at Thung Jaeng and for a measly 100 Baht (50 Baht for kids, 200 Baht for previously unregistered guests) you'll get beer, food, karaoke and entertainment. There will also be a T shirt sponsored by the Egg family: active runners will get their usual size T shirt automatically and we are also donating some shirts to the staff at Thung Jaeng who have looked after us so well on too many occasions to recall, this past year. Returning runners and guests will have to take pot-luck, but everybody should get a T shirt eventually, even if they have to wait a couple of weeks for SS to print some more.

The run itself will be an A-B with 3 or 4 different length options to suit  everyone except Gan Yao who will no doubt make his own one up as he goes along! The whole thing will revolve around a beer stop sponsored by Pee Wee and Olive Oyle (who sadly won't be joining us as they are currently in the US making sure they get registered to vote for Bozo next year!). There is a slight clash with Jappong's funeral at 4:00 p.m., but anyone who can't make it to Thung Jaeng for the departure of the fleet of trucks to the A site at 4:30 p.m. will be picked up about 20 minutes later and taken to the start of one of the shorter run options, so everybody who wants to join in should be able to. 

Formal details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1800, Saturday December 19th 2015. Circle called at 4:20 p.m.. Transport to A site leaves sharp at 4:30 p.m. but any late arrivals will be picked up at 4:50 and taken to the start of one of the short runs.
Hares: Egghead, Only a Yolk, Peppered Pussy and Harram 
Misdirections: From The Kao Seng intersection take the old Yala road for 11k and turn right at the Ang Thong intersection into the new Yala road for 1.4k to the Tung Jaeng restaurant on the left (07 05 12.07 N 100 37 25.04 E). If you are coming from the Ko Yo intersection take the the new Yala road towards the Ang Thong intersection and take the final U turn (just before Ang Thong) and go back westwards for about 1.3k.

Hatyai H3's run on Sunday is at Thungnai opposite the school: misdirections are something like: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.6k and turn left for 8k then right (at Wat Keow Kloy into Poonakan) for about 5.8k then turn right and go about 600 meters to the run site on the left . The hare is Sex Si and probably Sex of the Man to name but two.
