This week's recce was conducted to the accompaniment of the call of the lesser spotted chainsaw (Treeus downii) and there was also much evidence of the work of the greater excavator (Diggus upii). Whether the changes wrought by these two increasingly familiar visitors to our countryside are positive or not, we leave to you to decide, but they provided at least one spectacular view (above) and will make it a great deal easier for our short runners (Athleticus challengii) to share some of the more interesting bits of Saturday's run, details of which are:

Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1964, Saturday, March 2, 2019, 4:30 p.m.
Hares: Egghead and Eightball
Misdirections: From the Kao Seng intersection take the old Yala road for 16k and turn right at Wat Khun Thong for 3.5k then turn left immediately after the big tree. (If coming from Hatyai get to Tha Kham and head east for 5k then turn right just before the big tree). After 150m bear right and follow signs through the village for 850m to a T junction and turn left for 200m then turn right and follow the road/track for 1.1k. The run site is now on the right at 7.024685°N 100.619107°E (not left as in previous visits to this area).

Sunday's HH3 run is being set by the Beanie family and details of it's whereabouts will be added later when available.

Enter Hash Nerd

Surprised 😱 to learn of his [non] voluntary 🙋 appointment 📆, this Tool 🔨 is spending another day at home recovering from food poisoning 😵💩 and trying to be productive 👓 by dusting off what he thinks looks like a computer 💻 to take on this arduous task of "blogging" 📢. He might need a few tips to get started, such as how to turn on this computer's Bluetooth 📶 to connect his Garmin tracker ⌚. So, what can we expect from this newbie Hash Nerd #🤓? Probably just a load of third person ⅓👱 diarrhea 💩💩 interspersed with pointless emoji 😜. Stay tuned 📡 ...

Your new committee

Yesterday's faultlessly coreographed election produced a few changes to the extant order with the appointment of a new joint-GM, Lot Rakaa (red), who wishes to be addressed as The GM's Gimp, joining All Black (pink), and the inevitable union of the roles of On Sec and Hash Cash under the stewardship of Egghead (dark blue). Yardstick (light blue) moves from Hare Raiser to Beer Butch with Worm (dark green) being made his assistant, otherwise known as the Beer Butch's Bitch. Not the Full Shilling (light green) is now the Hare Raiser and has already managed to fill the hareline for the forthcoming month; Only a Yolk (orange) continues as Hash Haberdasher, Sex Sprinter (yellow) will carry on his vital role as Cultural Adviser, while in keeping with good Hash traditions, Little Tool (not shown) who was not at the run site was made Hash Nerd on the basis that he knows what a pc looks like.
Thank you to outgoing committee members, R2D2 and Beavershot, who had mysteriously disappeared anyway, probably via the astral plane, but could he please perform one last duty and make Little Tool the administrator of this blog!

The AGPU annual erection slip-me-a-bung filibuster run 2019

Ok, you get the picture we will be electing a new or only slightly used committee on Saturday at about 4:15 p.m. after which the run will revert to its civilized time of 4:30 p.m. Currently we have a nomination for the position of Hare Raiser (Not the Full Shilling) and a nomination for GM's Bitch (otherwise known as Deputy GM: Lot Rakaa). Other than that the field is wide open so come prepared to volunteer to serve, make suggestions, or pay someone else large sums in beer tokens to nominate you for the position of your choice.
The GM who will be happy
to see you on Saturday!

Run details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1963, Saturday February 23, 2019, 4:15 p.m.
Hares: Not the Full Shilling, Worm and All Black
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 10k and turn left at the Nam Noi traffic lights. Go 3.6k to Wat Pru Toh and turn right for 750m then turn left for 1k to the run site on the right. From Hatyai, the Nam Noi traffic lights are 7k from the Ko Hong Intersection and the turning at the traffic lights is to the right.

Meanwhile there is a quiz night on Friday 22 February at which no less than Eightball will be the quiz master and at which the current holders of the title of Intellects of the Universe, which include this weeks' SH3 hares,will be defending their hard earned honors. The venue is Oscars Bar in Srisuda Rd. and the fun starts at 8:00 p.m with the quiz starting about 5 minutes later. Indian snacks are being promised by mein host and hostess, Little Tool and Tool Box, so do try to come along and add to the confusion.

Finally, HH3's run on Sunday features that well know double act of Robocop and Sex Au Au as hares with the run site being the football pitch down Pijit  way: From The old Hatyai road 4.7k turning follow the road past Wat Keow Kloy, then on past Wat Nern Pijit and turn right at the 13k mark for 1k to the runsite on the right. Map below.

Full Moon 144: You can't keep a good runsite down!

Tomorrow night's HFMH3 run is from the runsite used most recently for HH3 a month or so ago and before that in December for the Songkhla Swap'em run just before New Year. The hare is again Kai Jeow/Egghead and the run will feature  a beer stop subsidised by HFMH3.

Details are:
Hatyai Full Moon Hash House Harriers' run #144, Tuesday February 19, 2019. 7:00 p.m.
Hare: Kai Jeow
Misdirections: From the 4.7k turning off the old Hatyai road on the road to Tha Kham: turn left after 4.2k for 1.7k then turn right for 500m to the run site by the lake at 7.053766° N100.583731°E  (or from Tha Kham  go north for 2k then turn right for 1.7k etc.). In Thai that apparently reads as: ปักหมุด ใกล้ ตำบล ท่าข้าม อำเภอ หาดใหญ่ สงขลา So no excuses for not getting there!

Usual stuff applies: Bring a hand/head light of you intend to run and some food to share if you think you will be hungry. Beer Leo will be on sale at the usual price of 40 Baht a can, but if you prefer to bring your own, there will be an ice box available for share-beer.

Run 1962 Rehashed

And for those who may be interested, above is a close depiction of where the runs actually went. Due to some spirited running by Sex Sprinter (again..!) and rather lackadaisical searching for paper at the first two checks by the other hounds, both checkbacks were neatly excised from the run. Having avoided the two checkbacks, it was left to Sex Sprinter to find all the false trails which mostly went nowhere up dead-end hills, thus saving the following pack from any strenuous hill climbing, almost. Most long runners would thus have done a shortened version of the long run, reduced to approximately 5kms. The short run would have been around 2.5km for anyone avoiding the false trail between the gullies after the beerstop.

SH3 yesterday, HH3 today and HFMH3 to come!

Brilliant hash yesterday! Thanks to Yardo and loverboy (above) for the run and to Little Tool and Tool Box for all the beer. On! On! to HH3 today (7.030998° 100.583808°) and Full Moon Hash on Tuesday of which more details later.

Saturday, February 16, 2019


With the general improvement in the weather and the lengthening of the days, in preparation for next week's reversion to 4:30 starts, the run this afternoon will start at 4:15 p.m. The SH3 committee wish to stress that this is completely unconnected with the fact that our recently married On Sec and his beautiful bride have indicated that this will enable them to join the run this afternoon, but they just better show up now, or else!

They're true blue!

How romantic! Little Tool and Toolbox are getting married tomorrow, on Valentines Day so the first event of the weekend is therefore the party on Friday evening (15th February) to celebrate their union, at Oscars Bar on Srisuda Road where there will be food and good company, which all hashers are invited to join.

The details of Saturday's SH3 run are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run    #1962, Saturday February 16, 2019, 4:00 p.m.
Hares: Yardstick and Kii Leum
Misdirections: From the Kao Seng intersection take the old Yala road for 16k and turn right immediately before Wat Khun Thong. Go about 2.5k then turn left at the hash sign and follow the road/track for 1.6k to the run site at N7° 01.576' E100° 38.062'. From Hatyai get to Tha Kham and head east for 5.5k to the big tree then go straight ahead for 1k and turn right and follow the road etc. to the run site.

Sunday's HH3 run is being set by the Beanie family and the map and directions are below.

Meanwhile, for the soon to be initiated, here are the words that normally follow this week's title:
They are bastards (or he/she's a bastard) through and through.
They are pisspots so they say.
Tried to go to heaven 
but they went the other way.
Drink it down, down, down....
From the Tha Kham Intersection go south for 1k and turn left (or from Wat Keow Kloy
go north for 1k and turn right) follow the road for about 800m to the run site on the right.

The disentitled

This Saturday's SH3 run details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1961, Saturday February 9, 2019, 4:00 p.m.
Hares: Sex Sprinter and Buk Toy 
Misdirections: From the Kao Seng intersection take the old Yala road for 16k (5k beyond the Ang Thong intersection with the new Yala road) and turn right just before Wat Khun Tong for 1k, then left for 300m to the run site in the rubber on the left at  7.037979° 100.643561°. From Hatyai get to Tha Kham and head east for 5.5k to the big tree then go straight ahead for 2.5k  in the direction of Wat Khun Tong and turn right for 300m etc.

Hatyai H3's run on Sunday (10 Feb.) is from down Pru Toh way beyond Makro on Phetkasem RoadFrom the Klong Wa intersection (Phetkasem road/Route 43) go south on the road towards Sadao for 4k and turn left at a set of traffic lights into Klongyatai Rd. Follow that road for less than 5k  and turn left at the hash sign until you see indications of a run site. For those who like coordinates, the last left turn marked with the hash sign seems to be at  6.931754° 100.509524°. The hares are likely to be similar to the group illustrated who set the last run in this location at the end of September '18: Sex Sanan, Nong Gop and Doraemon. For anyone who wants to make a night of it there will be camping space available adjacent to the run site so pack your tent and sleeping bag!
