RUN NO. 2114 - National Day Run
HARES: Trailblazer/Smurf/Madam Sin
FRONT HORN: BACK HORN: Dizzy
It was a very hot and dusty afternoon in Mata-Mata. The tent was late (again) and Hens were trying to find shade amongst the parked cars. When we eventually set off, we walked up the dirt track road for about one km before we entered the jungle. Of course I forgot I was going to be writing this until the run was over and all I remember at the beginning was going up and up and up. And going down we crossed a couple of streams, a bit muddy and a bit slippery going down on some parts. What a lovely piece of jungle with plenty of greenery. First check was found by Sarah and third check by Lee. Nobody was sure who found second check. In all, a superb run in an area new to some of us. First front runners were probably out in 45 mins back onto the wide dirt track road heading back to where we started and all Hens were out safely not too long after. Word out is that two of the hares had to keep up with a couple of youngsters on the first recce - how old were they again?!
Back to the OnOn site and we’re tent-less for the night but it was a fine evening so we didn’t need it anyway! After the usual weekly strip-show, the evening’s proceedings got underway. Hares who were wearing the Brunei colours were honoured with usual down-downs for a job well done. There were three new guests, a tourist from Singapore who runs with a Singapore chapter and two Bruneians guests of Dr. Pron, very apt for the National Day run. There were two birthday celebrants for February - many happy returns again to Anna Scott and Cheryl.
Madame Sin then did a National Day quiz. The first was to sing the National Anthem and the two Pron mates did us proud (phewwww for me) though maybe with a bit of prompting from another fellow Bruneian. We also learn from the little quiz that Alison shares her wedding anniversary with Brunei’s Silver Jubilee - Congratulations Alison!
Joke time! Well what can I say....Glamour thank you for what is probably the most graphic joke we have had yet. And as long as you make Amanda read them out you can keep them coming! Sarong got the hashit again for another mobile phone offence. And the finale for the evening was yet another Ladies HashHit by our talented JM’s, “Thank you for the Hash”. Well done ladies....encore..encore.
Thank you to the hares for the nasi lemak, a first for many Hens. A good number of hens stayed behind with the usual suspects for a fun night under the stars (though one really was a satellite!) On..On!!!
