The return of Songkhla Swap 'em!

This Saturday's SH3 run is the last of 2018 and will feature another chance to show off your card-playing skills on the run, as it were, with another attempt at Songkhla Swap 'em. Full instructions on the day and there will be prizes for the best men's and ladies' hands with some spot prizes as well. The aim is to have a bit of fun and although the runs will be up to the usual high standard you have all come to expect at SH3 they will not be excessively demanding and those of you who are still suffering nightmares after last weekend's HH3 outing can rest assured that there will be positively no hills! So with a beer stop sponsored by the returning Short Screw to boot, please try to come along and help us to end the year on a high note if not at high altitude!
Details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1955, Saturday December 29, 2018, 4:00 p.m.
Hares: Eightball and Egghead
Misdirections: From Songkhla take the old Hatyai road for 4.7k and turn left for 4.2k and then left for 1.7k, then turn right and follow the track for 350m to the runsite by the lake at 7.053766° N100.583731°E. From Hatyai get to Tha Kham and go north for 2k then turn right for 1.7k etc.
For those whose vehicles have sensitive undersides, there is a short section of the 1.7k bit of the road which is quite badly potholed and while it is traversable with care, there are a couple of alternative routes available either from the Songkhla or Hatyai directions, which can be worked out from the map below. They will not be signed but are quite easy to follow.

Hatyai H3's party takes place on Sunday December 30 at Superpig's auxiliary residence in Poonakan Soi 10. It seems probably that there will be some kind of optional run before the party but there are no details available at present. The cost will be 200 Baht which will include beer and food. For those who don't want to drive home afterwards, there will be floor space available if you want to bring a sleeping bag and your pj's. More details later as they emerge or are dragged unwillingly from the horse's mouth!

Finally, don't forget that this Friday (28 December) will see the rebirth of the Songkhla quiz night at Oscars Bar on Soi Srisuda starting at 8 p.m. with Big Alex wearing the quizmaster's hat. Plans are afoot to break the cliquey team syndrome so it would be really nice to get a decent turnout so that we are not faced with another SH3 versus the evil teachers showdown. Khun Pui will be providing the snacks and there will be plenty of reasonably priced beer available so why not come along and help to keep this little bit of Songkhla's Farang tradition alive.
