Wasn't 'e born in Tokyo?

 A message from the hare:
"Blame Air Siam and probably this exact 747: It was exactly 40 years ago, on April 16, 1976, that the young man who would one day be known as Beavershot first darkened Asia's doorstep. Come celebrate this dubious anniversary with yet another meaningless run, a whole lot of beers your liver really doesn't need, and the usual load of blarney and tomfoolery, not all of it necessarily by Beavershot himself. 

Songkhla Hash House Harriers' Run #1818
Saturday, April 16, 2016, 4:30 pm.
Hare: Beavershot
Misdirections: Take the Old Hatyai Rd. for 4.7km, turn left and go about 10km (i.e. around 2.2km beyond Wat Khao Khoy but before Wat Noen Phijit). Turn right at the hash sign and go 1.2km to the runsite."

Ah well, out of the window goes another piece Beaver's elegantly constructed facade of NOT being a CIA plant!

On to more predictable matters: no, HH3's run details are known this week and the run will take place from somewhere behind Nam Noi School and be set by Toy Boy: from the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for about 10k and do a U turn at the Nam Noi traffic lights then come back about 300m and turn left immediately before Nam Noi School, (i.e. the track just before the school wall begins). Follow the track for about a kilometer to the run site.

Finally, a big thank you to everybody who made the Songkran run on Wednesday such a resounding success: Kii Ling who coordinated the whole show, organised the food and provided the monkey for the T shirt, Only a Yolk and Sex Sprinter who got the T shirts made on time, Kan Kai and Hot Buns who let us use the Hot Bread Shop and produced the food (which was excellent!), and last but definitely not least, Yardstick who with advice and assistance from R2D2 organised the beer and its distribution, and with Conebrain set the run. And of course, no account of Wednesday would be complete without mention of our friends from The Royal Selangor Club H3 who turned out in huge numbers and made the whole thing such a lot of fun. Thanks to Johan/Expat for organizing the group and please come back and do it again next year!


  1. Forget the plane, I blame 'God' and the universe for putting you together!

  2. Blame Air Siam for going bust the day after I got here, stranding me without a flight back. All this really wasn't meant to happen.
