Yardstick's birthday run

It's Yardo's birthday this week, so this Saturday's run (Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run# 1883, Saturday, 22nd July, 2017, 4:30 p.m.) is officially the Yardstick birthday run and in has guise as your genial hare for the week, he has provided us with the following misdirections, comments and broad hints:

"From the Khao Seng intersection take the Old Yala Road for 16km (5.3km from the NYR / OYR intersection at Ang Thong) and turn right just before Wat Kuhn Thong. Proceed for 2.0km along the concrete & bitumen road and then turn left and go 1.2km along the new concrete & dirt road to the runsite. Runsite co-ordinates are: 7° 01.922' N 100° 38.514' E

For Hatyai visitors go to the big tree in the middle of the road at Ban Sai Khao, then go straight ahead past the big tree for 1.4km and turn right for 1.2km.

As demanded by a loud minority on the tweet machine, the hare promises a boring run this week with no nasty shiggy or near vertical cliffs to scale. Furthermore there will only be one run which will be medium short / long. This is going to be hard - for the hare. No hidden paper after the check, no back-checks, although possibly a checkback or two, no running along unswept paving. Now, what else was there, no competitive running, no beer, ……..hang on a minute, that can’t be right, well, you’ll just have to come along and see. Unless you’ve got something better to do, in which case you probably don’t want to come along, as the run is only going to be set to cater for anywhere between 11 & 13 hounds. Any more or less than this, will just have to run in small circles at each check until the paper is found.
Yardstick (with a severe aversion to cold water and sitting on ice – please note Madam GM)"

HH3's run on Sunday is from behind the CP factory on the old Hatyai road (Ko Yo int. 6.5k, right 1k) and the hares are Sex of the Man, Sex Si and Sex Tour X.
