OK here it is than, without any foreplay at all. A yardstick production with the assistance of All Black who provided the alcoholic beverage supply for the beerstops.
The long run itself was only a paltry
6.0km, including the 4 false trails. This was somewhat less than was quoted at
the pre-run circle by the hare, who conveniently forgot that a number of ‘F’s
had been eliminated due to time restraints at the time of laying. The total
ascent was about 280m, if you went to the ‘F’ at the very top of the hill, which
was about 180m above the runsite. The short run was fairly modest at 2.7km and
a total ascent of 110m, but regrettably missed out on the 2 beerstops located
at C04 & C06. I think it was generally agreed that both runs were fairly
benign, without any beating with large sticks, even providing free laundry
services for footwear at the end of the run.
As an insight to the mind of the fanatic
hare, a synopsis of the run construction follows. Due to severe time restraints
on setting the run due to the harsh weather on the Friday, and other
commitments on Saturday morning, the hare devised a crafty scheme for setting
the run, with instructions to self.
Go to big tree, take road past soccer
field and take road veering right.
Do paper drops at end of road
(C04) and where run crosses road (C06). Put up Beerstop signs.
Take dirt road to crossroad. Leave carry
bag where run crosses road (C07).
Park at crossroad and do paper drop
at top of hill (C02). Remember to take Runsite sign, Short Run sign
& short run paper.
Put up Short run sign and lay
connecting short paper to C07. Commence laying long run from C07.
