The it-would-be-a-good-idea-to come-to-this-run-if-you-want-SH3-to-still-be-around-next-time-you-fancy-a-run, run

We haven't had to do this for a while, as up until the end of last year our numbers were on a bit of an upswing and we were averaging about 40 runners a run. But recent weeks have seen that slump to around 20, culminating in last week's midsummer monster debacle when the long run was completed by no less than 3 people with a couple more opting for a slightly shorter version. Ok, so the rest of the runners enjoyed the short run, but voices have been raised this week as to whether it is actually worth the hare's effort to set a run if that few people are going to make the effort and do it.

So with that in mind, this week's SH3 run will be decidedly NOT A MONSTER and the hares have promised something that even the most reluctant long runner will be able to handle, and there will of course be a short run for those who prefer something even less demanding.

Details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run# 1870 Saturday July 1, 2017, 4:30 p.m.
Hares:Stick Insect and Little Tool
Misdirections: From The Kao Seng intersection take the old Yala road for 8.2k and do a U turn, then come back about 1.2k and turn left into Chompoo Soi 11. Follow the road/track for 500m to the run site at about 7.115261N 100. 628137E.
From Hatyai, (avoiding the Ko Yo intersection) Get to Tha Kham and head East for about 5.5k then turn left under the new temple arch on the road leading to Kao Long. After 500m, bear right away from Kao Long and follow the road for about 4k through several villages and across 2 crossroads until it comes out on the old Yala road just after passing Wat Kao Lam. Turn left and go north for about 4.6k then turn left into Chomphoo Soi 11 etc.

No comforting words about Sunday's HH3 run however as the hare is Robocop, but the run site is in the quarry at the back of the hill formerly known as the virgin with three tits (old Yala road, 16k, right about 1k turn right and follow the track for about 400m to the run site. From Hatyai get to the big tree at Sai Kao and go straight ahead for 2.5k then turn left along the track etc.) so he can't do too much damage!

Lastly, but by no means leastly, don't forget Eightball's 60th birthday party on Friday (30th June). Here's a link on Google Earth - just head for the red lollipop or set your GPS to 7.160694, 100.553278; or for the old-fashioned, From the Ko Yo intersection head for and cross the first Tinasulanon bridge, then turn left about 250m after the big Buddha and take the first right after 70m and follow the road for about 300m then turn right into the drive and follow it to the mansion/gaff/Englishman's castle at the end. All are welcome.
