DATE: 3 DECEMBER 2013
SITE: RAPIER RANGE, COASTAL HIGHWAY
HARES: Pee Wee/Madam Sin/Nancy
The Rapier Range out along the coast road, past Jerudong Park, is not a run we do very often. By coincidence it is where I laid my virgin run 9 years ago with the help of Karen Hedderman, who many of you will remember as Legolass.
One or two people took a wrong turn before finding the site, but the effort was well worth it. It was a calm and clear evening for a run/walk in the jungle. We went in to the right, up a hill and then had an open walk through scrub before reaching first check, which then led us into the jungle. A few ups and downs before reaching second check, at which point I heard back horn call for us to stop and turn around. It was 5.45 and starting to get dark, and the hares had phoned to say they were not yet out. On the reverse, there was plenty of light as we retraced our steps through the jungle, and as the sun set we left the trees behind us, and the open landscape gave us more light.
I believe that the Tutong Hash were at The Rapier Range the night before us, and this may be the reason why three Hashers were left in the jungle, going around in circles. One of these was our visiting hasher who had flown in from Kuala Lumpur. I hope she has not been put off joining us another time. Pee Wee and Satu Lagi with the assistance of Psycho and Alice in Wonderland went to the rescue and no harm was done.
As the food was going cold it was decided that the masses should eat before the appearance of the lost three. We then had the shout up on their return. Numbers were down as many people have already left
for the holidays.
Thanks go to the Hares for a yummy curry, front and back horn, and well done to Nancy on laying her first hash.
NEXT RUN: Kota Batu ---- pls bring a chair.
