RLC Harriers Run 864, 5 May 2015
Hares :  Dato Nik Gee & KCWong aka Chi Mui
Runsite : Lake Garden & its vicinity
Weather : Dry

There was a certain kind of foreboding when Bala was mentioned as
KCWong's sole hired hare ... both of them are not exactly noted for
blasting into new virgin jungle or anything out of the ordinary. 
How true!

GM Woon was having some health issue so JM Misai aka Steven pressed
the roti horn to start the run from the quadrangle. Off we went to the
junction and the trail veered right and then into Lake Garden and out
towards Tun Razak memorial and before we knew it, we were in front of
the National Museum and crossing the road. Then it was a long road run
before we came to the four-road junction. We went on to Jalan
Selangor, Jalan Johor and then Jalan Melaka before turing left into
Jalan Bangsar to go back to the Club via the Museum tunnel.

FROP was Peter Leong at 41 minutes, closely followed by our
indefatigable Mike Kuan. Most were in before the hour. It was a 6.2km
road run, not too interesting and full of motorcar exhaust gases.

The Circle started with some controversy. Mismanagement tried to
impose its views on all regarding the issue of beer. In the end, it
was amicably resolved that henceforth, after the barrel is finished,
the Section will make available chilled canned/bottled beer at a
nominal price, something like RM5 to 7 each (to be decided). 
Note : If Tarzan at VeggieHash could offer 3 cans of beers at RM10,
can we do less?

We all adjourned to Bunga Raya where a feast awaited, together with a
bottle of JW Green Label and a bottle of VSOP. Dato Nik Gee, the hare
in charge of the food also presented each Hasher witha fluffy cake ...
yum yum

So a good time was had by all.

Postscript : This is Uncle Yap's own initiative
I think the Section is currently running at a slight loss ... this is
not good. Please permit me to suggest something.

At each run, I consumed from 4 to 5 beers. At the nominal price of
RM7.50 each, I get value of RM30 to 35. The moderate drinker like say
Lee Seng Chuan aka Buffalo Lee with two drinks will have value of
RM15. Multiply that by 4 runs in a month and he gets at least RM60
whereas he only paid RM20 as subscription. Okay, this is balanced by
non-drinkers like Alice, David Wee and Wendy Lum.

So, may I beseech my fellow beer-drinkers like Allen Tan, Thambi Chai,
Playboy Choo, Shit Stirrer, Quiksilver Fox, Steven Khoo, Burns, etc
etc  to volunteer to pay monthly sub of RM40. If there are 20 of us
each contributing an additional RM20 a month, that will be nearly
RM5000 annually to the Section kitty and then we will not be in
deficit.

PP/S Tonight plus the next two nights, Guinness Anchor Berhad is
having a promotion at Batek Bar. After 9.00pm, Tiger is RM4.00 per
shot and Guinness, RM6.00 per shot. Damn good value for money
Please invite me to have a drink or two with you tomorrow and the day
after :-)
