RUN NO. 2516
DATE: 8 NOV 2016
SITE: DIPLO - BARKATS RUN
HARES: ALISON/SMURF/CHERYL/BLACK BEAUTY
So, the penultimate run of the hashing year. And one that definitely didn't disappoint.
We gathered at Diplo, as we often do, in anticipation of the BarKats run. Not a long run we were told, if it's too short, do it twice. We headed down the road and into the jungle just near the Malaysian High Com, not a spot we usually go in so good for a change. Down we went, not long before first check, which was a little bit fiendish, as we had been warned it may be.
As is usually the case with Diplo runs, we had plenty of water crossings, and a few canny hills in there to stretch our legs. Second check also proved to be rather fiendish, Mrs Pingu and myself checked right up the opposite ridge for the paper to be found back across the water. It took us a while to actually get back on paper, but we managed.
Eventually we could hear the laughter and conviviality synonymous with H3, our BarKats had set up a bar in the jungle! So we all stopped for a little rest and a drink and a chat before heading back out to the tent, a mere 5 minutes away. The shout up followed and it was a pretty lively one. The hares were downdowned, sadly the last run Cheryl and Smurf will lay for H3.
But instead of it being a sad occasion, we decided to party! We welcomed three FTGs and one new member - Sharon. The hares provided great food for us, and we even had music to wile away the hours to! We Hens didn't disappoint, some of us dancing late into the night at what was a great warm-up for Founders' Day . Thank you BarKats! On on
