Report - Run #2084 - Danny Lim's run,
The drive to the run site was quite easy, the directions were very good, and
signs had been put up from a good distance out. We were also helped out by
reasonable weather, though it looked like it would possibly rain during the
run. We all got changed into out running gear, but then realized that there may
be a problem with the first section of the run. A local man said that we could
not cross his land as he had cows there, and the last time Hashers had run near
them, it had resulted in one dieing. After much discussion we continued with
walking quietly past the cows, after we got to the top of the hill, the paper
stopped, but some of the front runners continued, saying they knew the way.
We continued in the same direction, but after 25 minutes, there was still no
sign of paper, about half of the runners turned round, and headed back to the
last paper, then made their own run, returning to the run site at about 7.15
PM. The other runners continued, returning to the site at about 7.35 PM, by
which time it was quite dark. Back at the run site there was a nice surprise
waiting for us, fresh Grapes, Mellon and coconut, a fantastic treat.
After the usual refreshments, we drove, mainly in convoy to the ON ON, ( Wang
Kee Resto). There again we
were treated to a superb delight of various dishes, all washed down with beers
kindly supplied bythe hare. This all rounded off a satisfying evening of
ON ON Maria Galindon: check out the photos:
Scribe Report ... Run #2083 Russell “Crusty Nuts” Jones
Although nobody bothers anymore with scribe reports on this hash chapter I
thought I would take my turn and scribble a few lines of drivel for
posteriority. The rain gods smiled on the hash today and the traffic was quite
light so I made it to the run site just after 5pm. After changing I joined two
other well-known “front runners”, Don Cheang and Peter Boudville, who had
decided to start off about half an hour early while the sun was still shining.
The trail up to the first check was quite slow going as there wasn’t much paper
to follow and we also had to avoid a large stampede of cows. After breaking the
check we followed nice trails going steadily uphill to the second check. On the
way up Peter looked at a track on the left and said, “I bet that’s where the
paper goes”. However we carried on to the top and found the second check. There
were 3 possible trails, but after checking each one we decided it had to be a
back check and tried a couple more before finding paper just where Peter
predicted. I hadn’t taken that very seriously because it was actually well over
200m from the check. Anyway we were on paper again having used up 15
minutes for the checking. We had been going for 1hr 15mins and were on a good
straight track when the paper suddenly turned right. After a short while Don
found the third check so we turned back to the main trail and went forward
looking for the paper that never materialised. We kept going and quite soon
found ourselves on a tarmac road that would obviously take us back to the run
site. So the third check must have been a forward one, but after 1hr 30mins,
over 7km and with fading light we decided to head straight home. Apparently,
after breaking the third check the pack then had another long loop of about 3km
plus two more checks to negotiate. They made it to the last check on top of a
hill but it was dark and too difficult to break. So in the end nobody actually
completed the 10km run and the pack h ad to find their own way home on the
tarmac road. Frank and Mark appeared at the beer truck around 7:45pm and as I
left the run site at 8pm there was a long line of torch lights bobbing up and
down on the road as the main pack trudged back in. Fortunately, most runners
today were well equipped with torches because, as everyone knows, it gets dark
early these days! The three of us who started at 5:30pm really enjoyed the
trail, which was good and very well laid with about half the paper stapled up
on leaves at head height. However, with hindsight, the run was 2 to 3km plus
two checks too long. If the home trail had come after the third check most of
the pack would have been back in the fading daylight.
Attendance this week was back to the normal 40 plus after something like 85
hashers had turned up the week before. I don’t know what they were all hoping
for last week on my run but I bet they didn’t expect to get screwed at the
Russell “Crusty Nuts” Jones.
