RLC Harriers' 2015 Send-Off Tuesday 29 December 2015 / Jane Oon After a fantastically eventful year, the Hashers of RLC could not let 2015 leave without a bang ... and so it was on the last run of the year numbered 898. Some 50 runners turned up and off we went into the Lake Garden where the first check got everybody squeezing through a narrow gap before climbing up to the National Monument. The second check was quite predictable and we gingerly negotiated our way down the slippery slopes of one of the last remaining bits of jungle in Kuala Lumpur. When we emerged at Menara LPP, the SCB (short cut b*****ds) turn left for home while the rest crossed the road where the third check posed a huge unsurmountable problem. The Dragon Trail was flooded and no alternative route could be found. Little did the runners realise it was a back-check into the government offices and then a road run back to the Club. At the hilarious Circle that followed, many sinners were punished for crimes, real or imaginary. We dressed up in our Cowboy fineries and made our way to The Pavilion for a night of revelry and festivities. Wine and beer and whisky flowed freely. Sue and GM Woon won the muscles contest and awards were handed out for outstanding Hashers - CKLeong got a pair of baguettes for his untiring efforts in 2015; Boss received a dictionary to improve her England, oops, English and GM Buta Buta Woon, a blindman's walking stick. The band kept the festive mood going - getting everybody on the floor with evergreens like YMCA, Stayin' Alive and other rollicking numbers ... and so we danced and laughed and had a jolly good time saying farewell to yet another wonderful year. Good-bye 2015. Hello 2016. On! On!
