The nine signs run
The beer truck tragically failed to appear in time for most of the short runners who must have been motoring...or maybe BTDIII, whose 650th run this was, was otherwise engaged. Meanwhile Stick Insect's undercarriage failed and he was forced back to the run site to join late arriving elements of the short run in time to reach the beer stop which was by then in place The arrival of the depleted long run pack occurred somewhat later by which time BTDIII had resumed his disturbed sleep in the front seat of the Egg-truck.
Back at the run site, dinner was served courtesy of Only a Yolk and Crackwurst just before the rain arrived to render the circle ...wet. But it was successfully completed with the aid of several umbrellas most of which were provided by Chao Ngor. Kan Kai, Hot Buns and Curry in a Hurry were welcomed back and CiaH was given his delayed 5-run shirt; Yardstick got his 550 run shirt and BTDIII woke up for long enough to acknowledge his 650th although not gracing the ice with his bum. The hare was awarded faint praise which was probably just about what the run deserved.
On on to better things and the pussy run on the morrow.
