RLC Harriers Run #889 Tuesday 27 October 2015
Run Site : Gasing Carpark
Hares : Bob Yong & Daniel Tan
Weather : Fine weather for the run but masked by haze

As we drove in to park, we found the carpark nearly full 30 minutes
before the run ... then we found the culprit; the Shah Alam chapter
was also running there. At exactly 6.00pm, our ButaButa GM pressed his
roti horn and off we went into the familiar entrance to Gasing Hill.

We strolled along the stream and then abruptly, left up the slope and
then there was a check. While the other front runners went in search
of the trail, I went on up the steep incline and soon I was at the
top. Then I heard faintly "On! On!" and the pack moved right to
another path.

What to do? I was not about to give up the height that I had so
painfully gained; so I went on and soon found the Shah Alam papers
which I followed in the hope that I will soon come upon the RLC
recycled paper. After reaching the bottom, there was another hill and
up I went until I chanced upon another lost RLC Harrier, Professor
Tie. We continued with the Shah Alam trail and soon, we emerged on the
road opposite the playground and rejoined the RLC homeward path.

We came back and found ourselves behind at least ten front-runners. We
tucked into the finger food and had our shower before assembling for
the Circle. A drop followed by another drop and suddenly, the sky
opened and all the hashers made a beeline for their cars and emerged
with umbrellas. But RLC Harriers are RLC Harriers ... we stayed and
the circle was conducted with us carrying umbrellas. 
"Par see boh chow" (hit until dead but never run away)

We honoured the outstanding dancing dual, Katherine and Thambi Chai
who raised the Chicken Dance to a new level at the recent Oktoberfest.
In spite of the rain, charges came fast and furious, one after another
and the Weather God relented and allowed the last bit of the circle to
be rain-free. Our latest faithful butler, Katherine (should she be
called buttress?) was sworn in and she promised to run the hash every
Tuesday come rain, come shine, come tsunami, come anybody's birthday.

We then adjourned to Kam Kee, next to the old Padang Merbok ... they
have cleared this site for a condo project some 3-4 years ago and they
still can't start work ... Malaysian bureaucrazy ?

Anyway, the food they dished out is just as good and we tucked in
heartily, washed down with some alcoholic beverages. We all had a good
time and wondered whatever happened to the absentees. They missed a
good run and a fun evening.
