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.
