Separated at birth

These warm wonderful human beings have planned, sweated, recce’d and rehearsed to bring you the following:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1940, Saturday September 8th 2018. 4:30 p.m.
Hares: Eightball & Gan Yao
Misdirections: From the Koh Yoh intersection take the new Yala Road for 900 meters. Turn left at the sign as if going to Pa Prem’s Place. Go for 300 meters and turn left for 50 meters to the carefully sited car park. For those with access to technology (and children to show us how to use it!) co-ordinates are: 7°07’39.83”N 100°35’15.17”E

This Sunday there is no HH3 run as everyone involved will be working at the big sala behind the CP factory to get ready for the Train rumble run on Tuesday 11th September. Any extra hands welcome!


  1. Well, Dave and I did our best to lose you all, but failed! We must try harder next time! I don't like leaving signs (or hashers!) out on the tails so I went back this afternoon to pick up the short run sign. Surprise, wasn't there, gone! disappeared, nicked, stolen,. blagged not of this world no more. But I don't think this was the problem.

    Janine was the first runner in, she did the short run and so I think its safe to say that the trail was originally intact.

    Just after where the sign should have been I found about 10 meters of trail had been picked up and relaid joining the short run back to the long run.

    So its looks like just after Janine ran through a hasher moved the paper, probably thinking they were helping out but in reality consigning the short runners to the long run. Why they should do this, don't know, they may have strayed onto the short run by accident, heard the long runners calling and joined the trails.

    Whatever, its up to the hares to make sure this doesnt happen and we should have foreseen this and kept the trails further apart, but you have to look on the bright side (of life, tum te tum, tum te tum) when I picked up the 8 latecomers on Kanjanavanit one lady said to me 'I paid 60 baht to run, but I ran 100 Bahts worth!'!! On On Gan Yao

  2. I think the short run sign was rescued by Budgie Smuggler and Buk Toy - I certainly recall seeing a (yellow plastic) sign late on at the run site. Incidentally, their problem was that the last check was not broken properly so we also have a problem with not moving paper! But a good run nonetheless.
