The Beaver expands his habitat

In case you missed it, The Guardian reports that "Scotland wild beaver reintroduction trial 'an outstanding success'". Robbie Burns, author of the 1791 poem "Cock up your beaver", would be proud.

But closer to home Songkhla's own Beaver this Saturday expands into some new territory of his own. From what is believed to be a first-time runsite, he plans to explore a neglected corner of countryside more or less behind Wat Khao Kloi. You may recognize bits of it but there will be some surprises.

Songkhla Hash House run #1834, Saturday August 6, 2016, 4:30 p.m.
Hare: Beavershot
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.6k and then go left for 8k. At Wat Khao Kloi turn right into Punnakan Road and go 900m. Turn left onto the concrete road, and then right after 200m. The runsite is about 600m further on, after the concrete turns to dirt. Hatyai sourced hashers should look for the sign on the right 900m before the Wat Khao Kloi end of Punnakan then  follow the directions above. 

Sunday's HH3 hare is Sex Printer and the runsite will be familiar to those who were at Sex Sprinter's last run for SH3, as shown on the map below.
Or for the literal minded: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.7k and turn left for 6k to the Tha Kham crossroads then turn left for about 2k  and turn right at the hash sign and follow the track for about 1.5k until you hit the run site. Hatyaistas can get to Tha Kham either by heading North from Khai Kloi for 2k (and turning right) or by turning Right at the Nam Noi traffic lights on the old Songkhla road, for 7k (and going straight ahead).


  1. Update on the HH3 hares on Sunday who now include Star Soccer along with Sex Printer.

  2. Is the HH3 run motorbike friendly?

    1. Not if your name begins with a 'J' or if your Hash name begins with a 'K'!
