RLC Harriers Run #896 Tuesday 15 December 2015 Run Site : Lake Garden & its vicinity Hares : GM Woon & Peter Leong Weather : Rain before and during but stopped around 6.30 There was a festive air around the quadrangular in spite of the incessant rain that had started pouring down at 5.00pm. People were trying out Col Johan's wicked punch and the rambutan that Uncle Yap had brought from Dr Gurmukh Singh's garden. The hashers and the guests collected their freebie (a sarong) and soon it was time for the obligatory group picture. The roti horn sounded and off the 120 of us went along the road to Jalan Parliament and left at Padang Merbok and into the squatters colony where the hares had cut a path across the wasteland that had acted as a public rubbish dumping ground. We came across discarded sofas, building material waste (from some renovation jobs) and lots of odds and ends. Very soon, we hit a road and then it was off to another patch of jungle beside Datin Ann's house. This path has been a perennial favourite among hashers but on this day, the path was extremely treacherous and slippery. Wendy Rule #1 could be heard shouting out the warning, "Don't grab the trees - full of thorns" and people heard and obeyed and fell on their bums. Lots of backsides were muddied here. We emerged at Menara LPP and the SCB turned left and made their weary way home. The others went straight across the junction and entered another patch of jungle before traversing the path along Dragon Trail and then back to the Club. FROP was Quiksilver Fox at 68 minutes (wonder how he can time his arrival to end at 8 (fatt)?) The Circle was another hilarious affair but soon it was time to bathe and dress up in our fineries ... all the men in their suits and the ladies in gowns and each capped by exquisite headgear from feathered crowning glories from the Roaring Thirties to elegant outfits that would not be out of place at the Ascot Opening Day. Very posh indeed. Fine dining followed and it was accompanied by free flow of beer and wine and many bottles of single malt whiskies, generously contributed by hash section members. We tucked heartily into the food. In between the courses, there were cake-cutting, games, fashion parades and lucky draws. The band played harmoniously in the background ... and we danced and made merry into the wee hours of the morning and we all had a jolly good time. REMINDER : Sunday 8.30am Working Gang to clear Dragon Trail Bring yourselves and parangs and cutters. All are welcome.
